Moto X wood options will be available in coming weeks

The Moto X will have options for a wood backing in the future, but not in time for Thanksgiving, according to a Reuters reporter on Twitter. Despite this, Motorola is allegedly aiming to offer the backing option to customers through Moto Maker in the coming weeks, "in time for some holiday shopping." Original sightings of the backing showed options for Ebony, Rosewood, Teak, and Bamboo, though it is not clear which of these will be offered to customers.

Google updates Chrome voice search with "OK Google" prompt

Google has introduced hands-free voice search to the Chrome desktop browser, building on top of the existing voice search functionality. The Voice Search Hotword extension for Chrome 31 responds to the "OK Google" voice command, in a similar way to that of Android 4.4, with speech after the prompt being interpreted and searched for.
