This is Google’s version of continuity. It would have been more interesting if this worked with just the Chrome browser not Chrome OS.

Google’s responses to Apple’s CarPlay. I’d take either over any stock system from an auto manufacture.

Cleaner, more consistency, more fluid, and more iOS-like.


Matt Honan of Wired has a great round up of everything announced at the very long Google I/O keynote today.

The Moto X is one of the better designed Android smartphones and the G and E share the same designed language. It’s definitely not the best smartphone available but for what it cost it’s probably is the best value.

The app is surprisingly very well built. It’s clean with an iOS 7 feel, but still has Microsoft Office familiarities.

It’s Free to download, view and share documents but you’ll need an annual $99 Office 365 subscription if you want to edit.

Ashraf Eassa of The Motley Fool on the newly announce Galaxy S5:

The Galaxy S5 is likely to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 in the U.S. and other developed markets (and an “Exynos Infinity” for international versions), 3GB of RAM, a 2560x1440 display, an updated/new industrial design, and a fingerprint reader. This should make it the crème de la crème of Android devices, and to address the critics that Samsung’s products are “cheap plastic,” there will likely be a version with a metal chassis. The iPhone 5s is likely to pale, at least from a hardware perspective, in comparison.

Inaccurate reporting of the specs. He’s rehashing previous rumors as if they were facts.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 is likely to be a great device, the most premium of the Android devices. Apple is probably going to lose high-end share as this product ramps, but if Apple is smart, it will prepare to host a “special event” to launch a suite of new iPhone products sooner rather than later.

It might be the most premium of Android devices, but Apple is still running away with more than 85% of the industry’s profits. No one at Apple is losing any sleep over the Galaxy S5.

Google is now offering the Nexus 5 in red in their Play Store and it looks so sweet!

This is the first Android phone I enjoy using as much as my iPhone. If it came with stock Android, it would be close to perfect.

Google doesn’t like what Samsung is doing with Android and is putting them on notice. So much for no being evil.

Love the design, love the size. Give me this with stock Android and I’m sold.

I don’t know why so many are getting bent over shape about this. It’s an app that has targeted ads, which uses your location and device ID to serve them to you. It’s almost implied they are using this information, although they should be disclosing it in their privacy policy.

Furthermore, when installing the app, it clearly states that it will be taking this information. It does not say what they will be doing with it, but this clearly should have raised some red flags for a simple flashlight app. Like long ULAs, users don’t read what these apps are asking permission for and just click through.
