Many of us have a soft spot for a certain company, following it through both thick and thin.

A new leak regarding the next generation Motorola Moto 360 indicates the company has plans to increase the resolution of the screen to 360 by 360. This is not the first time this screen resolution has surfaced in connection with the new Moto 360.
