The new Nexus 7 has raised the bar for high-resolution tablet displays, but we’re left a little perplexed by Samsung’s lack of high-resolution tablets. Read on for more!
Chromecast is cheap, simple and sold out nearly everywhere. The fact that it’s so hard to get only adds fuel to the HDMI media streaming device’s hype. We’ve already stated that Chromecast has the potential to disrupt the way that we watch TV. Let’s take a look at some of the technology behind Chromecast and how Chromecast compatible apps and casting web pages work.

Google officially announced the new Nexus 7 today. It has amazing specs, but we wanted to know how it did against the current competition.
Earlier today, the Android 4.3 source code and Nexus factory images became available for download. Google also announced that the supported Nexus devices would start receiving their over-the-air updates soon.

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.
