Ashton Kutcher has been a Product Engineer for Lenovo for over two-years and during that time he’s helped develop the Yoga family of Android-powered tablets. Now, however, he’s focusing his attention on smartphones. Earlier today, Kutcher published a post on Motorola’s official blog in which he explained that the company has been at the forefront of emerging handheld technology for the past 3o-years, and that he will be spending most of 2016 in the Moto Labs, listening to consumer feedback, to aid future handset enhancement.
The actor also took the opportunity to share three videos from the Moto Labs, highlighting the capabilities of the company’s latest Verizon-exclusive smartphone, the Droid Turbo 2. The first clip showcases the device’s famous shatterproof display, the second video exhibits the firm’s innovative hands-free mode that comes preloaded on all Moto X handsets, and the final movie demonstrates the sheer speed of Motorola’s Turbo Charging feature.

Motorola has started rolling out the much-anticipated Marshmallow update to all unlocked variants of the Moto G (2015) located in Europe. Strangely, the upgrade carries a slightly different version number to the firmware that was released for the handset in India and North America, but it appears to bundle the same functionality, as well as a handful of regional bug fixes and stability improvements.
As previously mentioned, this update transports the latest build of Marshmallow to the handset, and for those unaware of the differences between Android 5.0 and Android 6.0, the newest edition brings greater control over application permissions, an enhanced battery-life through Doze, a redesigned application drawer, and last but not least Fingerprint-authentication for payments.
To see if the upgrade is ready for your device, open up the Settings application, scroll right down to the bottom and tap on About Device, select the System Updates subheading, then tap Check for Updates. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to download and install it.

Lenovo recently announced that they’re planning on phasing out the Motorola brand after the company’s major acquisition two years ago, and needless to say, that stirred up plenty of emotions from people all over the web. Before things continue to escalate, Motorola has released a statement about how they’re going forward into 2016 and beyond, including the fate of the Motorola brand.
First and foremost, Motorola Mobility isn’t going anywhere. That portion of the company is still in charge of their own business just like they always have been, including engineering, design, and manufacturing. The only real change comes in the form of dropping “Motorola” from device branding, which is really something that Motorola has been pushing for recently anyway.
The company will instead focus on “Moto” as a brand, instead of worrying with the “Motorola” side of things. Motorola has been doing that since the inception of the Moto X, rebranding the M logo with new fonts and colors and designs. While their devices are technically the Motorola Moto X and Motorola Moto G, they’re almost universally referred to as just the Moto X or Moto G. All of the recognition has been shifted to the Moto part of the name, and that’s the biggest official change that’s happening with Lenovo’s decision.
From here on out, we’ll see more focus on the Moto and Vibe brands from Motorola and Lenovo, with less focus on the Motorola and Lenovo part of things. Both names are simpler and a more modern take on advertising, and long term, will probably be good for both companies.
