Lookout_App_Large_Icon

With over 50 million users, Lookout has always been the leader when it comes to protecting our smartphones and tablets. The app has always been free, but if you want the ultimate protection, than look no further than a Lookout Premium Subscription. With Lookout Premium, you don’t have to worry about losing your data in the event that you lose your phone or tablet since it will automatically backup the important things like photos and call history. What happens if a thief steals your phone? You know they will try to remove the SIM card or enable Airplane Mode so you can’t track the device. Lookout will alert you of such actions and capture the last known location. This stuff is only the tip of the iceberg. How many apps do you think you have installed on your device that can track your personal information? Lookout can tell you instantly. Let’s not forget safe Web surfing and the ability to remotely lock or wipe your device.

Motorola and Yo contest didn’t go so well, but 20 more Moto 360 smartwatches are up for grabs

moto-yo-contest

Did you enter the Motorola and Yo contest to win a Moto 360? If you did, you might have thought you won the coveted watch, but ended up in disappointment.

Today at 3:00pm CST, as planned, All contest participants received a link through the Yo app. Most people thought that if you were one of the first 20 people to click the link, you won a Moto 360. The only problem was that you actually had to fill out a form in order to complete the task at hand. Actually that wasn’t the only problem. The other problem, and actually a bigger one, was that it clearly stated at the top of the form, “Yo! You won a Moto 360!” Obviously that wasn’t the case. As stated in the rules, the first 20 people to complete the form would win the almost-full circle smartwatch.
