EU to reportedly file anti-trust charges against Google

If reports are to be believed, today will be a historic day for Google, and not in a good way. Rumors are swirling about that the European Union will finally be filing charges against the tech giant for violating antitrust laws. This may be the biggest battle of this kind since the anti-trust case against Microsoft almost a decade ago. While this will not come as a surprise since the investigation has been going on for five years already, it will definitely have huge financial consequences for Google should they lose the case.

Public might get a shot at Google’s Project Tango tablet

If you’ve been dreaming about what is probably one of the most robust tablet devices out there – namely, Google’s Project Tango – this will be very good news for you. Google might just be opening sales up to the public for this device soon, as intimated in an email update to developers who reserved their Project Tango tablets but failed to purchase.

Google enters battery race, looks to improve current tech

Looks like everybody who’s everybody in the mobile device industry is looking at better, badder, more kick-butt batteries – that is, without the hyperbole, a battery that will last longer and will fit into smaller spaces than the current lithium-ion standard. Google is the latest name to get into the game of who will produce what is considered the “holy grail” right now in mobile devices – a longer lasting, thinner, and probably flexible battery.

Snapseed (finally) gets an update: more editing tools, more options

In the world of apps, not getting an update for two years is almost like a death sentence. Well, not really, (especially if you're owned by Google), but it also means that you might not get any new downloaders, or that people already using your app might find some other alternative, one that brings new features every few months or so. So it's with a sigh of relief that finally, after two years, Snapseed has received an update, bringing with it new tools and more options to use.

Google Play for Education program comes to Canada

Google has yet to launch Chrome for Work but the Internet giant has done a lot for education already. There's the Drive for Education made free for students and educators October last year. Even before school started in September, Google Play for Education has added support for tablet sharing between five students. Soon after, it became official on Chromebooks. Google values education. It's not just about work, entertainment, or games. After it went live in 2013, the Google Play for Education program has been helping a lot of people, mostly the education sector not only in the United States but especially in other developing countries.

Google App update adds Nicknames, Thrusted Voice

You may not usually notice your main Google App because there are too many other things you can do on your Android phone but the app has just received a fresh new update. This isn't a major update but you can now add Nicknames. This feature was made available to some users but it's only now that Google is rolling out the version for everyone. If you think it's too minor that you can ignore this particular update, maybe the Trusted Voice feature coming to the app might attract you.

More colorful straps, watch faces for Android Wear added

By now, you've probably decided that you like Android Wear, that you want a wearable, and that you're finally getting a smartwatch. There are several models from different manufacturers already you might have a hard time choosing only one. Personally, I like the Huawei watch and the customizable Moto 360 and maybe in future, that Tag Heuer smartwatch. The smartwatch game appeals to me because there's so much you can do with such a small device and wear it around your wrist.
