Google submits plans for moveable, “futuristic” new digs

While a lot of offices around the world have used the Google HQ in Silicon Valley as an inspiration for their own creative, unique, sometimes weird office spaces, the tech giant seems not content with their current already awesome hub. They have submitted a proposal to the Mountain View local government to expand their existing corporate offices into block-like structures that can eventually be moved around as they expect to be moving around when they expand in the future.

Android’s Global Smartphone Profit Share only 11 percent, says Strategy Analytics

The smartphone era will never come to an end. This isn’t just my prediction but I think even if tablets and wearables become popular, the smartphone will be a standard mobile device more than the two. Laptops are more preferred now over desktop computers. However, tablets are more preferred over laptops. But between a tablet and a smartphone, more people would go for a smartphone because it’s more portable and has more features than a tablet because of the call and text functions. Honestly, you can do almost anything on the smartphone now…even work!

Motorola responds to veiled criticism from Apple’s Jonny Ive

While Apple's lead designer, Sir Jonathan Ive, did not exactly say the brand's name in a recent interview, Motorola felt like they had to respond, because he was obviously talking about them. Motorola President Rick Osterloh said their company just has a "different philosophy" while also managing to take a few potshots at Apple and their "outrageous" prices.

Corning to come out with sapphire-like scratch resistant glass

When Apple was poised to skip Corning’s famed Gorilla Glass scratch resistant technology for sapphire glass for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, there must have been quite a bit of panic in that camp. It was a good thing then, that the promise of sapphire glass was in vain, and Corning still has its market share. But it may just have learned a lesson from that scare – because now the company is promising sapphire-like levels of scratch resistance with its upcoming product.

Apple may have bitten off Nexus 6’s ‘missing’ fingerprint sensor

It turns out that Apple may have been responsible not just for the seeming current downturn in innovating its own products, but contributing to some "missing" parts in the competition as well. Notice that cute "dimple" behind Google's Nexus 6 -- manufactured by Motorola hence the dimple has Motorola's logo? Well, news has come out that it should have been a tappy fingerprint sensor. But circumstances have been so that Motorola wasn't able to include that in that final design.

Google Glass jumped out of the experimental Google X division Thursday and on to Fadell’s list of responsibilities. Almost exactly a year ago, Google bought out Nest for $3.2 billion.
