Apple slide-to-unlock patent invalid in Germany, says high court

Patent wars among big tech companies won't have an end. There will only be more lawsuits to be filed and more abuses to be made by any party who wants to make it big in the mobile industry. All these firms will find more ways to slap each other with cases that sometimes don't really make any sense or can be considered a waste of our time.

Google testing out food picture-taking feature for Maps

Google may have scraped their supposed foodie photo app Tablescape for some reason or another, but that doesn’t mean they’re giving up on getting something running to satisfy the frustrated food stylist/photographer in all of us. They did promise us that some elements or influence of the closed experiment may make its way to some other future apps. Well, it’s not a future app, but it looks Google Maps is the one they’re integrating it with.

Android Pay may launch on Aug 26, as per unofficial McDonalds memo

We’ve been eagerly anticipating when Android Pay will officially launch in retail partner stores, especially as it has been almost 3 months since Google announced their new payment gateway. But until now, we still haven’t had a clear word from them as to when stores will actually start accepting it as a mode of payment. But now it seems that McDonalds has released an internal memo saying that they will start letting customers pay with Android Pay by August 26.

Google Maps updated with easy Street View access

Google Maps is no doubt one of Google's best projects ever since it actually began. It has changed the mapping and navigation industries big time. More enhancements have been made when the Android version was released because more people are no longer at risk of getting lost. Having a digital map on mobile device can be really helpful especially if you're going to or already in a new place you are not familiar with.

Turn back time with new Google Photos memory feature

Timehop started it all. Facebook’s On This Day feature followed suit. #ThrowbackThursday is a regular feature on social networks every, well, Thursday. Now, Google Photos is doing its part to bring you nostalgic feels by giving you a trip down memory lane. The opt-in feature will show you photos taken from a year ago, two years before that, and even as long as ten years back, as long as they are backed up on the app.

Google Translate on Android Wear now available, covers 44 languages

Thank heavens for Google Translate because it allows us to "read" content in different languages and understand them after translation. According to the Internet giant, there are over 500 million users every month taking advantage of the service. And everyday, Google translates about 100 billion words all over the web. It's such an important part of our everyday lives that Google decided to bring Google Translate to Android Wear.

Some Google bloat apps removed from Mobile Application Distribution Agreement list

There are millions of apps on the Google Play Store right now but if we are to check and look closely at each one, we'd see that not all apps are useful, relevant, and makes a lot of sense to ordinary users. Oftentimes, apps are simply duplicates of other apps but with a little twist. It may take a long time though before Google checks on all those apps.

Google Docs, Sheets updates bring more productivity to mobile devices 

Despite the various tools and features available on mobile apps, some people still prefer working on their files and documents on their desktops. We can’t really blame them, as programs and software on our computers are still sometimes the best way with which to create documents, spreadsheets, presentations and then edit them. But when you’re on the go and would need to do something on the fly, then we have apps that are continually tying to make life easier, like Office mobile apps and Google’s productivity suite. Docs and Sheets now get additional features for this purpose.

Project Ara’s module magnets failed drop test, new alternative soon

In technology, an idea is only as good as the execution – and in Project Ara’s case, we were ready to accept Google’s idea that “electropermanent magnets” will hold the modules of the concept modular phone together. Today, it seems that the execution part for these clever magnets have failed the dreaded drop test, and Google is looking for another way to keep its modular phone together – in literal and metaphorical senses too.
