Google launches first ever street view of Yosemite’s El Capitan

One of the nerdiest things I do when I’m bored is to “travel” through Google Earth and Street View. It can be fun to go to view places I haven’t been or want to visit. For now, I’m content with Google bringing me to new places but someday, I will. Looks like I’ll be visiting more tourist spots as the search giant has recently launched Vertical Street View. It’s a new collection that features a vertical view of a mountain.

Cool new APIs out for Google Calendar, Google Maps

Google is pushing out some new APIs for app developers to play around with, this in relatively known and very much used app platforms like Google Calendar and Google Maps. The first API is for you to be able to attach files to Google Calendar entries, which sounds uber useful. The second one is for using Google Maps to present you with the perfect bike ride profile on an Android Wear platform, like a smartwatch.

Google Translate translates 100 billion words a day, says new ad

If you don't travel often, or you don't have friends from other countries, or you're just not inherently curious about other cultures and languages, then one of your least used Google products would be Google Translate. But if you're the opposite of all those, then you probably have a profound appreciation for this particular tool. A heartwarming new ad shows just how powerful this app can be, not just for knowing how to say "thank you" in 90 languages, but in various aspects of our lives.

Google rolls out free ad-supported version of Google Play Music

Google continues to push into the online streaming music space with its current vendor program-slash-offering Google Play Music. This competes directly with services like Spotify and Apple’s iTunes music store. To leverage itself, it has now created a free to use, free to download, ad-supported version of Google Play Music, much like how people use Spotify for free.

Android One now available in Myanmar under Cherry Mobile

When you think of connectivity in the Asia Pacific region, you don't automatically think of Myanmar. In fact, it was just a few years ago that they started opening up to the world once again after decades of becoming a "hermit". So you could call them a slowly waking and emerging market, in terms of communication. That makes them a prime candidate for Google to release their Android One mobile device, joining 7 other countries that are already carrying the standard, emerging market smartphone.

Google intros News Lab to empower innovation in media, information technology

Whenever you need news or information, the first thing you do is get your smartphone or tablet and open your most favorite app. Perhaps it's Facebook to check your news feed or Twitter for what's trending. Others go directly to news sites or open news apps to know what's the latest. While news and information are easily available, there is the question of accuracy, truthfulness, and quality. The problem today is not access to news but how reliable a source is.

Google Clock now available for non-Nexus devices

Yes, your device has a default clock app. Yes, you don't really need much from it except you need it to tell time and set alarms and the like. Yes, you've never really thought about getting a different app to replace your device's default one. But if you're a big Google fan and you have a non-Nexus device, then now you can also download the Google Clock app.

Huawei working on another Nexus as Google plans to be bigger in China

We will only believe an information if a company has made an official announcement. Even a teaser will make us believe that something new is coming as long as it is from the brand itself. However, any news even from an employee is considered a rumor. And so this idea that Huawei has already confirmed that it's working with Google to release the next Nexus--still a rumor.

Razer’s Forge TV console shows up at the Google Play Store

You would think that it being called the Google Play Store, they would specifically offer only Google products, like say – the Nexus Player. But stranger things have happened, and right now we’re seeing Razer’s very own android TV gaming console being sold at the Play Store, even if it (kinda) competes with Google’s own (ASUS-made) Nexus Player.
