Moto 360 5.0.1 update delayed, some devices now receiving LWX48T build

Motorola may have originally planned to roll out the Android Wear 5.0.1 update to all Moto 360 devices by the end of the day yesterday, but it looks like the company is facing some kind of delay in the rollout. Now, some users are seeing yet another build of 5.0.1 hitting their devices, and Motorola is saying everyone should be up to date by the end of the week.

The forum page that we cited in our post from yesterday originally listed the 15th as the last day of the rollout, but today, some users on Google+ and elsewhere—even those that already had the update—are now reporting that a second build, dubbed LWX48T, is rolling out. This is probably just to fix some last minute bugs, and Motorola has since said that the new rollout schedule is that Moto 360 users should receive the update “by the end of this week.”

Have you received the Android Wear Lollipop update on your Moto 360? If so, have you received the new release also?

Microsoft Office file editing now on by default in latest Chrome OS dev build

After rolling out the ability to edit Microsoft Word and Excel files for the developer build of Chrome OS back in June, Google Chromium evangelist François Beaufort today notes that the feature is now on by default in the latest build:

Microsoft Office files editing is now enabled by default in the last Dev Update of Chrome OS. As we can see below, the UI has been slightly updated since the first time we’ve seen it. Moreover if you encounter any issue, don’t forget to open the “Help” Menu and click on “Report an issue”.

Previously the feature had to be enabled by the user, but it appears that Google might be getting closer to introducing the functionality in the stable build of Chrome OS in the near future.

Earlier this year, Google released a Chrome Office Viewer beta allowing users to view Office files in the browser, but not yet the ability to edit the documents.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime to get FOTA Ice Cream Sandwich update Jan. 12

ASUS announced on its Facebook today that the Transformer Prime would receive a firmware over-the-air Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update starting Jan. 12. Somehow this is even before the Motorola XOOM, Google’s reference tablet? Perhaps this will ignite a war among Tablet makers to get their devices up to Ice Cream Sandwich first. Bring […]
