Improved photospheres will make their way to Android 4.3

by: Nate SwannerJuly 25, 2013
If photospheres are also one of your biggest annoyances with Android Jelly Bean, I’m right there with you. The photos don’t stitch together properly, and they often seem like you took them too fast or slow. It’s great when you get it right, but when you don’t, it’s an embarrassing headache.

Netflix trial for Chromecast no longer being offered

by: Nate SwannerJuly 25, 2013
It seems the promotional three month trial for Netflix is over already. While it was always “for a limited time”, that usually means a period of weeks, not hours.

Chromecast and Google TV: Is there room for both?

by: Nate SwannerJuly 25, 2013
If we take a closer look at the similarities and differences between the two, it’s clear that Chromecast doesn’t yet accomplish what Google TV is capable of. That being said, the fact is that neither is doing what we want of them right now.

Thanks, Google, breakfast was delicious! Here’s a rundown of today’s announcements

by: Nate SwannerJuly 24, 2013
The anticipation is over, the Chromecasts are ordered, and the original Nexus 7 is retired. We knew much of what we’d see this morning, but there were still a few surprises. Things like textbooks via the Play Store could be important, and Netflix is getting cozy with Google.

Video: Android 4.3 versus 4.2.2

by: Nate SwannerJuly 24, 2013
It’s roughly the same look and feel, but 4.3 is noticeably faster, even though it’s still called Jelly Bean. It snaps through web pages faster, and navigating through normal phone functions are also smoother.

NetFlix and Google bring you 1080p mobile streaming with Android 4.3

by: Nate SwannerJuly 24, 2013
Essentially, Google and Netflix just broke down a DRM wall to bring us the best possible streaming they could. This, along with Chromecast, seem to be the linchpins in a developing relationship with Google and Netflix.

New Nexus 7 and Chromecast are in the Play Store

by: Nate SwannerJuly 24, 2013
Both the 16GB and 32GB versions are there, listed at $229 and $269, respectively. The new Nexus 7 is a marked improvement over the original, and just a touch more expensive. A starting price of $229 is still really impressive, though.

Google Play Textbooks promises to be a well rounded program

by: Nate SwannerJuly 24, 2013
To save students from lugging around “400 page doorstops”, Play Textbooks offers the same functionality in a tiny form factor. You can take notes in the book, highlight sections, bookmark pages, and research words or phrases, just like you can with all other Play Books. You can even switch into “night mode”!
