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.

Contest: Win one of twenty copies of MyBackup Pro courtesy of Rerware and TalkAndroid [updated with winners]

MyBackup_Pro_Splash_Banner

MyBackup Pro continues to be one of our favorite apps for backing up precious data. It’s simple enough for the casual user and powerful enough for those that love to change ROMs often. Recently, Rerware updated MyBackup Pro with the new “Migrate” feature that allows you to transfer your data from one device to another if it’s on the same WiFi network. My Backup Pro normally costs $4.99, which is a steal when you consider everything it does. Just check out our hands on review to see.

When the folks at Rerware came to us and said they would like to give a free copy to twenty of our lucky readers, are we going to complain? Hell no, so here’s your chance to grab a Free copy for yourself. We are going to keep this one very simple. Just comment below telling us which phone you are using right now. What could be simpler? You have until Wednesday at 12:00pm EST. We will then pick twenty random winners and announce them here. Just make sure that you are using a real email address because that is how we are going to contact you.

Hit the break for a hands on video showing you how the new “Migrate” function works as well as a funny commercial spot.
