Not all that many Samsung Gear Lives have made it into the hands of users, but already we're seeing reports of the smartwatch's charging mechanism breaking and preventing users from continuing to power the device without resorting to wildly impractical measures. Some disgruntled Google I/O goers have taken to Google+ to share pictures of their damaged hardware.

The user who shared the image above contacted support to arrange for a replacement and came to the conclusion that "Samsung can die in a fire." He was unable to find success through Samsung's site due to an inability to find a "model code" that the website insisted on.

KindleFireHDX-Thumb

A primary selling point of the 7" Kindle Fire HDX is its greatly improved screen, which, with a resolution of 1920 x 1200, makes text look clear and images crisp. Sure, it comes with a simplified custom interface that can't be swapped out without rooting and tinkering with the device, but at least with the display, you know you're getting something that even us picky enthusiasts can appreciate. As it turns out, that may not be the case.

Motorola's ruggedized DEFY (which our own Brad Ganley reviewed) is a pretty cool phone. In my book, any time you can stick a gadget in a glass of water (or beer, as the case may be) with absolutely zero negative repercussions, I'm interested. The DEFY is no poser - Motorola's made the first industrial-strength Android.

Unfortunately, a substantial number of users across the globe are reporting a fatal flaw with the device, and surprisingly it's not MOTOBLUR-related.
