Google made a few announcements at their I/O 2018 keynote about Android, VR/AR, YouTube, Google Assistant and more.
When Google introduced their Pixel Buds at their October 4th, 2017 event, it showed that Google was not only interested in making phones, smart speakers and laptops but also getting in the wireless earbuds game.
Back at I/O 2017, Google had announced Photo Books which allowed users create and print photo albums using their own photos.
It seems like phones, watches and speakers are the only things Google wants to add the Assistant to.
After a few months of only being available in the US, Google is bring their mesh router, Google WiFi to Canada.
Google’s Nexus lineup was a great way to show off pure, stock Android. But this year, Google has shifted from partnering with OEMs to make Nexus phones to something that more pure Google, with the introduction of the Pixel phones. Google’s Pixel lineup of devices which started with the Chromebook Pixel combine solid premium hardware with Google’s software.
Lenovo made quite a few announcements at their Tech World conference in San Francisco. Including the first consumer product with Google’s Tango (formerly known as Project Tango) and the Moto Z.
And in case you missed the keynote livestream, you can find it below.
It’s that time of year again, April Fools Day. A day to relax but also to be somewhat skeptical about what you see on the internet.
As 2015 comes to a close, it’s that time of year for the annual “best of …” or “favourite thing of 2015.”
This post will be focusing on the apps that I used the most this year, so much that I consider them my favourite apps of 2015. Some of these apps might not have come out in 2015 but some have been significantly since last year’s post: Favourite Apps of 2014.
Some of these apps are just available on only one platform (just Android or just iOS) but some of them are multiplatform in which they are on both Android and iOS and have a web app as well.
The links to download these apps will be in the form of “Get on Google Play” or “Get it on the App Store” pictures after each app description.
Google’s Nexus lineup has been a great way to show off pure, stock Android. These devices have played a key role for developers and die-hard Android enthusiasts but it hasn’t really become much more than that. It has never really become known to the everyday consumer to the extent as the iPhone or Samsung’s flagship ‘Galaxy S’ devices.
After using the Nexus 6P for a few weeks now, this is easily one of the best Nexus phones since the launch of the Nexus One in 2010.
In this review, I will cover the following areas:
- Design & Hardware (hardware and specs)
- Software (all about that Android)
- Camera (a picture is worth a thousand word right?)
