With all the leaks coming out about the new Nexus devices, you’d be pressed to wonder what else could possibly be left to know. Well, plenty it seems.

So here we go, a no fluff (possible sarcastic commentary though), facts only, bulleted list of everything you need to know about what was announced today at Google’s event. Here we go.

Everything You Need to Know About Google’s OnHub

Recently, Google announced it’s most recent tech innovation –Google OnHub. But this time the newest must-have device isn’t a new phone, or app, or other such spotlight-hogging device. Nope, it’s a router. The backstage run-crew of your technology dependent life. And you know what? It’s about time. With all the constant updates, new features, and brilliant advances of the last few years, routers have stayed unimpressively the same –same clunky design, same on-again-off-again signal, same unimaginably long password of gibberish letters and numbers, same pain-in-the-butt hunk of junk. So, good for you, Google, trying to bring the ancient router up …

Calling all campers, backpackers, and sweet-tooths! Gather round the campfire for story time, and let me tell you a tale that has yet to unfold. Google’s anticipated Android M has been officially announced as… drum roll please… Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Think you can sink your teeth into this one? The Android Developers Blog (image below) gave us some new information about updates, but the release date is still a bit unclear. They’ve been saying “autumn” and “late fall” for some time now, which could mean any multitude of dates. But while we’re waiting for that exact day to be announced, let’s …

Comparison Between Cortana, Siri, & Google Now

Siri first introduced us to the world of technological personal assistants, and all of our collective minds were blown. Hell yeah, I wanna talk to my phone! However, Google soon gave Apple a run for its money by introducing Google Now. And now, with the introduction of Windows 10, Cortana has moved up the ladder and joined the ranks of top-notch AI. Though there are a number of other personal assistant apps that can be used on various platforms, Siri, Google Now, and Cortana are definitely the big three. While there is quite a bit of overlap in the way …

Project Brillo is Google’s New OS for Internet of Things

Just announced at Google’s I/O conference, Project Brillo is Google’s latest OS. Presenter and Senior VP, Sundar Picha was scant on specifics about the OS, but he imparted the basic concept of how it’ll work and why we should look forward to it.

Google Photos Brings Visual Search, Free Unlimited Storage

Skynet Google is pretty smart. They must recognize the compulsory human need to visually capture all major/minor kodak moments in life, and the resulting, incrementally ballooning data swell in the average person’s photo library. In response to this burgeoning data crisis, we now have Google Photos: a free app (Web, Android, iOS) which seems to address a couple of unavoidable issues with intriguing new features in tow. Here are a few: Free, unlimited storage for high quality photos and video, or up to 15GB of uncompressed files shared across your google account, also for free. Visual Search allows you to search your photo library based on people, places, and things …

How to Sync Google Apps for Work Calendar, Contacts, & Mail on an iPhone Using Push

Friend of mine recently registered her new bar’s website domain name and naturally, asked the nerdy guy who runs a tech site to help. After registering her domain for her (yes, all I essentially did was push Add to Cart for her and deny all the other GoDaddy upsells that they try and make you buy on the way out), I told her she needs to get Google Apps for Work instead of using GoDaddy’s clumsy mail system for her work email for the new domain. Her only question: “Will it work on my iPhone?”. Darn right it will. Thing is though …
