Tables, Tablets, Data And Eating

shutterstock_93996670 Restaurants as we know them have remained the same for over two hundred years, and fables about amazing restaurant tech have inevitably leapt to futuristic ideas: robot waiters, food printers, talking refrigerators. Today’s reality is far more interesting and complex than those sweeping visions. A tsunami of technology, both from established industry providers such as POS and IT… Read More

This week’s sidebar poll: Which new device are you most excited about?

Here comes the silly season

We hope you’re buckled in and ready for yet another wild ride in the mobile space this week! We’ve got boots on the ground in Berlin, New York, Chicago and Cupertino to see all sorts of new stuff from names you know and already love.

We’ll be covering everything from IFA — including Samsung who is putting on a show in New York as well — and many more big names in tech. We’re also hoping to see what Motorola has in store with briefings in Chicago and Berlin, and there’s a little company named Apple who should be showing us at least one new phone, and maybe even a wearable of their own.

So what has you the most excited?

Worth another read: Smartphones and Sex — your answers

Earlier this year we asked about how your smartphone affects your sex life. For some, it’s a natural progression in the digital world. For others, it’s a nonstarter. But it’s also very much in the news this week in light of the exploitation of a number of celebrities (to say nothing of the countless pictures that get uploaded every day, with permission or otherwise).

It’s worth taking another look at your answers. (Ours, really — we took the survey right along with you.) And, perhaps, it’s worth taking another look in the mirror, and taking a pause before potentially taking that pic.

New leaks reveal the Moto X+1′s M-logo button and secret front sensors

New leaks reveal the Moto X+1's M-logo button and secret front sensors

We’re merely three days away from the Moto X+1′s big reveal in Chicago on September 4 and yet another tidbit about the rumored handset has leaked out.

Another set of brand spanking new photos of the handset sent over to TK Tech News reveals the back Moto logo on the X+1′s backside might actually be a button a la the LG G3.

Supposedly this small recessed dimple houses the phone’s power button, which could also be used for other functions within apps.

Aside from the button it seems users can expect the Moto X+1 to arrive with an aluminum frame and a variety of finishes including wood, plastic, leather and denim. Later this holiday Verizon will purportedly release an exclusive carbon fiber version.

Here’s looking at you

Motorola, Moto Aware, Moto G2, Moto X+1, Moto 360, smartphones, smartwatches, Android, Newstrack

A close look at this new set of high-resolution image reveals four camera-esque sensors on the front face of the Moto X+1.

These sensors purportedly will work in conjunction with a new software feature called Moto Aware. But, according to Phone Arena, Moto Aware has been all but removed on from all of Motorola’s handsets due to an Apple lawsuit blocking the feature.

Before it’s removal, Moto Aware supposedly would have automatically adjusted phone settings on the fly. This includes security settings and the UI tweaks based on the user’s location, as well as the lighting and ambient noise in the user’s vicinity.

Meanwhile, another TK Tech News source has explained these sensors will actually be used as part of the X+1′s faux 3D interface. From the sounds of it, the shifting UI interface will be very similar to Dynamic Perspective on the Amazon Fire Phone.

The price is right

Along with the new details of the Moto X+1 it seems the Moto G2 has begun shipping internationally.

Import codes picked up by Pricebaba reveal the Moto G2 with 16GB of storage space will ring up to $175 (about £105, AU$187). Previously, we heard some worrying figures, which placed a €250 (about $335, £200, AU$360) price tag on Motorola’s affordable mid-range handset.

With these latest reports we can breath a sigh of relief that the handset will still be priced within the same ballpark as the original Moto G.

We expect the Moto G2 will be announced right alongside the Moto X+1. Check back in with TechRadar soon as we bring your more from Motorola’s Chicago show this Thursday.

  • Will Motorola also announce a release date for the Moto 360?

10 Best Ways to Secure Your Smartphone

Lock your smartphone

We’ve said a million times, and we’ll say it till we’re blue in the face. Lock your smartphone. Lock your smartphone! We were also slightly dismayed (though not exactly surprised) to hear in our recent poll that a good third of our readers do not lock their phones. And we say unto you, there is absolutely no excuse not to, especially considering the vast array of options we have to do it now. Actually, you can wait a few minutes and pick from this list at the end. But right after. Not after a few rounds of Duet. Not after watching Netflix. Right then.

Now, you can lock (and unlock) your smartphone many, many ways, and they all have their benefits and their drawbacks, but somewhere, some mixture of method will work for you. So, let’s get to it, shall we?
