A phone that would take in information from around... you, would be based on your behavior and habits, and will give you the information you need to know before you even have to ask for it. Well, Google Now seems like the realization of that dream, or at lea...

With all the major hardware and software announcements made by Google yesterday at the I/O Conference keynote, one could see that the entire Android/Google ecosystem is evolving towards a smoother... cross-platform experience.

Some of the best (subjectively, of course) software exponents of this principle let you continue reading your ebook on the Nexus 7 tablet from exactly the point you...

Ever since the launch of Google’s “social layer”, Google+, the guys in Mountain View have been trying to focus on fewer products, instead of the scatter-shot approach on products... they had before. But while they have streamlined many of their products and services in the past months, there’s one area where things have gotten worse since the launch of Google+, and that’s G...

Google revealed today during the first day Google I/O keynote an intriguing device, that caught the entire blogosphere by surprise – the Nexus Q.

As expected, Google just announced its first tablet carrying its own branding, the Nexus 7.

Asus-Google-Nexus-7-Tablet

Last fall, when Amazon launched the Kindle Fire, they probably had to take a little loss, as the components alone cost about $190 out of the $199 retail price they were selling it for. Add to... that the costs of marketing, distribution, and so on.

It seems that the Nexus 7, Google’s and Asus’ endeavor, may be a little more profitable, as the materials are estimated to cost...

Although EA pulled their games from the Google+ game store for lack of user interest (I don’t think Google+ users like playing Flash games that much, and they don’t like getting... spammed like in Facebook, either), it seems that the video games giant will still partner with Google to release a sophisticated 3D multiplayer game for Chrome and ICS devices, that surprisingly is n...
