    In addition to Android 4.1 (Jellybean), last week’s Google I/O introduced us to a Chrome Browser update, Google Play news and the Project Glass carnival ride. Here’s the lowdown:



    Chrome Browser:


    The official version of Chrome Browser is now in the Google Play Store. You can download it for free. For those already using mobile Chrome, the new version provides much-needed stability and a few performance enhancements. Tablets got some UI adjustments - a good idea considering this will be the Chrome running with Nexus 7 tablet . There was no word on availability of this update for devices running older OS versions than Android 4.0.


    Google Play got quite a bit of Google attention. Here its new angles:


    Google Play Books:


    Play Books was updated to support embedded streaming video and audio in books. This will have lots of useful applications, particularly in the educational environment.  There’s a new UI feature where you can tap the upper-right corner of a page to bookmark it. New settings options allow for auto text-to-speech and the ability to lock downloads to WiFi only. The rest of the updates were improving support for various formats and other stability fixes.


    Google Play Movies:


    Google I/O leftover news – Chrome Browser, Google Play and Project Glass


    Now you can purchase Google Play Movies in addition to renting them. TV shows are also available in the Google Play Store as well. The more Google can offer in the Store, the better they will be able to compete with Apple. Next we’d like to see Google step up to the subscription plate and give the likes of Hulu, Netflix and Amazon some nice competition.


    Google Play Remote Features:


    Uninstalling and updating apps you bought from Google Play can now be managed from a web connection. Just like it’s easier to edit your address book online rather than from your phone, apps need the same kind of management tool. So, maybe it’s time to clean out your app junk pile.


    Project Glass:


    Project Glass is Google’s R&D effort to create an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD) they call Google Glass. Sergey Brin’s Google Glass presentation was fun. Some guys jumped out of an airplane and another ran down the side of a building. The audience got to see the little adventure play out on the big screen. The perspective was cool, but as a passive observer can’t we can get something very similar from video games and 3D movies? The final HMD won’t be ready for consumers until 2014, but attendees of the Google I/O were given the chance to pre-order a prototype pair of the glasses (to be delivered next year) for $1,500 a headset. Maybe we just don’t see the bigger picture for Google Glass yet…

    Apple puts up $2.6 million as a bond for an injunction  To ban Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales


    Last week, Apple posted a $2.6 million bond in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California to ban the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet from being sold in the United States. As soon as Apple got their preliminary injunction and posted their bond, Samsung filed their appeal for a stay of the injunction. Judge Lucy Koh, the same judge who has decided many of the recent lawsuits, will hear arguments sometime soon.


    Apple and Samsung are the world's two biggest makers of high-end phones including the Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus. They’ve been accusing each other of copying designs and technology for mobile devices and are locked in patent battles all over the world. What’s at stake are profits from the $119 billion global tablet market.

    The best price out there for an unlocked GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus just got even more attractive. Google dropped the price of the unlocked HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus by $50 to $349 – comparable to what you’d pay for many devices on contract. According to the Google Play ad, the unlocked smartphone can be used on AT&T, T-Mobile, or “more than 200 GSM providers worldwide.”


    Samsung Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ price drops to $349


    Before those of you who already purchased your Galaxy Nexus from Google Play start complaining that your timing sucked, if you made your purchase within the 15 days prior to this price reduction announcement, Google will refund you the extra $50.


    The Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65-inch 720p HD display and dual-core processor. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and will be one of the first phones to get the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS next month. Orders for the Galaxy Nexus can be placed directly through the Google Play Store now.


    Protect your devices with  top brand cell phone accessories  from Bags and Sleeves, Batteries, Bluetooth Headsets and Bluetooth Car Kits, Car Holders, Cases and Skins, Data Cables, Earbuds and Headsets, Keyboard and Protectors, Memory Cards, Screen Protectors, Speakers and Docks as well as Stylus and Pens.

    Wells Fargo loves Apple


    One of the biggest banks in the world, Wells Fargo, has confirmed that the Apple stock deserves the “Outperform” rating and said that the next-generation iPhone “will be the biggest product launch in consumer electronics’ history.” We’ve heard that before.


    And Apple rarely fails to disappoint consumers, reviewers or the investment community. The fall release is definitely going to make big news. iPhone 5 and the new iOS together are sure to create a feeding frenzy among new and old iPhone device owners.


    Keep your Apple devices protected with top brand cases & skins while enhancing their mobility with the latest in earbud & headset, speakers & docking stations, Bluetooth Headsets  and data cables technology.

    It only took Android app developer Philippe Hausler 12 hours to load Swords and Soldiers onto the brand-spanking new Google Nexus Q media hub, the first social streaming media player:



    Granted, the Android game isn’t functional yet, but that just might be a new hacking record. Some app gurus are touting the feat as an indicator of the potential of the device.


    Right now the Nexus Q only works with devices running Google's new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. The only available Jelly Bean device there is right now is the Nexus 7 tablet. Of course, Google promises more Jelly Bean products available in the coming months. Google says it the Nexus Q will eventually work with devices running older versions of Android, but with a $299 price tag, Google has to work faster on its compatibility.

    National Weather Service to text weather warnings


    Smartphone users who find themselves in the vicinity of dangerous weather will get a text message from the National Weather Service. The NWS’s new Wireless Emergency Alerts system is designed to get weather warnings to those not plugged into television or radio. Warnings will be delivered for impending rough weather due to tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, tsunamis, flash floods, extreme winds, blizzards, and ice and dust storms.


    The free text messages will be less than 90 characters and sent to later-model smartphones including  the Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, HTC One S, HTC One X, HTC One V, LG Optimus L7 as well as the Optimus L5 . The message will sound a special alert and then vibrate. Exactly which phone models will have system access is not yet known.


    According to Amy Storey, spokeswoman for CTIA-The Wireless Association (the trade group that helped set up the system), “These alerts will make sure people are aware of any impending danger and provide them with the information needed so they can be safe until the threat is over.”


    Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile will offer the service nationwide. To start, AT&T will only offer it in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Portland, Oregon but plans to add additional markets soon. Apple will support the service this fall. It’s not yet certain if older iPhones will get the text warnings.
