Android Lollipop revealed with Nexus 6, 9, and Player

This afternoon Google revealed that they’d be releasing Android L as Android 5.0 Lollipop. Along with this release comes three new devices, the Nexus 6 smartphone, the Nexus 9 tablet, and the Nexus Player. The Nexus Player is the first official Android TV device to be released with Google, and it’s made by ASUS. The Nexus 6 is made by Motorola, and the Nexus 9 is made by HTC.

Nexus 6, Android 5.0, Lollipop: tipped, teased, and leaked

If the latest rumor were true, then we might just be counting down the hours before Google's great Android reveal involving the Nexus 9 tablet and possibly the Nexus 6 smartphone and the name of the next Android version. Naturally, we are now getting a flood of hints that point out the possible answers to all those questions, including the possible name of Android L, which might be Lollipop after all. Whatever it's name is, Google has seemingly confirmed that it is indeed Android 5.0.

Nexus 9 to be unveiled tomorrow but launched in November

If the stars align tomorrow, we will finally get 1/3 of the Android puzzle filled in. An insider sources claims that Google has scheduled a formal announcement of what is now known as the Nexus 9 for October 15, which is just a few hours away. This, however, is just an appetizer as the tablet will only be available via pre-orders starting the 17th until its retail launch on November 3.

Did the Google lawn sculpture artist tease Android L official name?

It's either he's the most obvious "teaser" out there or he's giving us another red herring. Google lawn artist (yes, there's such a thing!) Giovanni Calabrese has been leaving licorice hints all over his G+ page, just ahead of his visit to the Google HQ in San Francisco. He is now working on retouching and refurbishing the lawn sculptures, probably in preparation for the official announcement of the latest Android version and the probable unveiling of the new Nexus phone, rumored to be later this month.

Google Now ahead of Siri, Bing in search result accuracy

Smartphone, smartphone in my hand, who's the fairest of them all? Aside from our bad rhyming skills, the answer to that question must be fairly obvious, but in the interest of those who want actual numbers and statistics, a study conducted by SEO consulting firm Stone Temple showed a clear winner in the battle of the digital assistants. A test conducted on the built-in search assistants from Google, Apple and Microsoft showed that, of course, the search giant was miles away in terms of accuracy of results, although it might be lacking in the fun department.

Google testing video checkup with doctors

Google knows everything. That’s what most people say. You want to know something or stalk someone, Google the term and you’ll see hundreds to thousands of search results. You’ll be surprised at what you’ll learn. If you start searching for symptoms of an illness, more often than not, you get scared because there’s a tendency for you to self-diagnose after reading a lot of websites that are not really reliable.
