Sheriffs ask Google to take down police feature on Waze

More and more people are relying on traffic reporting app Waze to navigate their way around the city because of its real-time and crowd-sourcing nature. People update it regularly to report on traffic jams, car-congested areas so that drivers (and even commuters) know which roads to avoid. But another feature of the Google-powered app is causing unease among the law enforcement community as some officers believe this can be used to "stalk" their police officers.

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.

Enjoy all the NFL side action on YouTube and Google Search

Last year, the world was gripped by everything football as the 2014 edition of the World Cup was held in Brazil. Google was at the forefront of providing all the action for people who unfortunately couldn't be there in person.

It was only last week that the Nexus 9 was released in sand color and the LTE version was made available by T-Mobile last December after being delayed for some time. All good news and more as Google is finally bringing the Android tablet in Taiwan and New Zealand.

Google Cellular Service in the works?

Is Google finally venturing into the cellular network service industry? Well, we've heard of this rumor before and now we've got word again that Google is already preparing to sell mobile phone plans. This seems to be ambitious but the search giant selling cellular phone plans and mobile data plans could enter this arena. Google is a big tech company it can really do anything but managing its own cellular network--I don't think so.

Streamus extension brings YouTube Music to Chrome

YouTube is great for one for reason and one reason only - hosting a massive amount of videos. Late last year, YouTube launched its music platform which offered subscribers unlimited amounts of music for $7.99 per month. Streamus is the new Chrome extension which gives you the freedom to stream music without having to pay. Search your favorite songs, create playlists, and play songs all day - without ever accessing YouTube directly.

HTC One M8 GPE removed from store, leaves future unknown

We've seen Google Play Edition devices come and go from Play Store, usually in order to pave way for newer models. Today, the HTC One M8 GPE silently left the Play Store shelves just as had others before it. But this removal is quite noteworthy because of what it could imply. With the One M8 GPE's exit, there are no more Google Play Edition devices left on Play Store, leaving only the Nexus line to hold the fort and calling into question the survival of the GPE idea.

Field Trip will help you unveil local places and discover more

There may be hundreds of Google Map-related apps available on the Google Play Store today but only a few can be considered as really helpful. The native Google Maps app will never be enough for those who want more information about a certain place or want to see photos first before going. For those who like to travel and explore the world only on their screens, the Field Trip could be a new mode of "traveling". Discovering Google Maps doesn't have to be boring because there are many apps available, offering different information, photos, and details that really matter.
