The Moto 360 sold out in minutes of it being first available online and has created a ton of buzz since its initial announcement.
Pretty soon, you’ll have another option for where you can pick one up.
According to an AT&T release, the carrier will be adding the device to its accessory portal on its website — customers will be able to purchase the Moto 360 as an accessory.
The release says pricing and availability will be announced at a later date, but don’t expect it to cost any more or less than what it can be gotten for now from other retailers/carriers.
According to Samsung’s website, the Galaxy Note 3 on Sprint will be soon receiving Android 4.4.4 in an OTA update.
With the update comes HD voice Icon support, international wi-fi calling support, Google Security Patches, Knox 2.0 and Kids Mode.
This is all pretty basic stuff by now — you can check the software updates section on your device to see if the update has hit your phone yet. If not, just sit tight.
Samsung’s WatchON app is relatively popular — in addition to its ability to control set-top boxes and TVs, it can also play on-demand content (both free and paid).
Today, Samsung released WatchON Plus to the Play Store, but is only available to Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 owners. The app features an updated UI, but doesn’t appear to have any added functionality.
To download, hit the break.

Hit the break to grab a few or all eight.
Google has released an update for Google Glass taking it up to version XE21.0. The list of changes is not extensive, but users will likely welcome them. Although the issue of Glass owners wearing their devices for driving is not settled, users can access navigation information through the devices. With this update, Google enabled the inclusion of Waze information, like accidents, on the display when navigation is being shown.
Motorola is suffering from the sting of embarrassment after an updated version of their Motorola Connect app made it out into the wild with some fairly critical code omitted. The missing code is that related to checking whether a smartwatch being paired to a Motorola smartphone is a Moto 360. Even worse, the app automatically installs apps intended for Moto 360 smartwatches on those non-Moto 360 devices.
EMT Leaks revealed a specs list that claims to be for the 2014 iteration of the Google Nexus 5. Originally thought to be a Nexus 6 or Nexus X, it could very well keep the same name as last year’s model. Although this is purely a rumor and should be treated as such, the list raises some questions.
Google has updated their Chromecast companion extension for the Chrome browser that brings in a pretty useful new tweak for slinging your browser tabs to your television. If you’re using the beta version of the Google Cast extension in Chrome, you’ll be able to cast your tabs in full 1080p, up from the 720p option that’s available in the stable version.
To top it off, the beta extension allows you to adjust the bitrate of your casted tabs, plus set a limit on the maximum FPS captured from those tabs. If you’ve got a nice router, you can really turn those settings up to get a fantastic experience with your Chromecast, but if you’re dealing with a cheaper or slower router, you may not want to crank the settings up too high.
