LG G Watch R Starts Disappearing From The Google Store And Online Retailers, Is Effectively Discontinued

In with the new, out with the old. That seems to be LG's mantra when it comes to Android Wear watches. No sooner does the company announce and release a new model than it starts winding down production on the previous one, then completely stops it. That's the case of the G Watch R, or the GWAR as we lovingly referred to it here on Android Police.

The Google Store's listing for the G Watch R now shows this message: "This product is unavailable in your country," and its support page only currently lists it as sold in Australia whereas it used to mention Japan and the United States before.

Well, if you own an Amazon Fire TV, you can now add GameFly to this list.

The GameFly streaming service derives from the company's acquisition of Playcast. A look at the latter's website gives you an idea of what you can expect from the experience, as the interface matches the one Amazon has shown off alongside the GameFly Streaming app already uploaded to its app store.

Motorola Offers Atrix HD Owners $100 Off A Moto X To Apologize For Dropping Update Support

The Atrix HD came out in 2012, right before Motorola's Google-fueled turnaround. That's why it was surprising when Motorola put this phone on the KitKat update list in late 2013. That update never came through, leaving the device on Android 4.1.1, but Motorola is offering a deal on a new Moto X to make up for that.
