Student creates 30-second cellphone battery charge, tapped by Google

This year's Intel International Science and Engineering Fair has named its three winners, picking 18-year-old Eesha Khare for her invention of a supercapacitor that could soon charge a cellphone battery in 20-30 seconds.

Google I/O 2013 wrap-up: Expanding the Android Ecosystem

Google I/O 2013 wrap-up: Expanding the Android Ecosystem

Because Google's most popular operating system - and the most popular operating system on the planet, mind you - is Android, it only makes sense that much of the company's yearly developers conference would be centered in this multi-device environment. What we expected for this year's Google I/O was an upgrade to a new version of the mobile OS and a new device (or two) to run it on.

What Google DIDN’T announce at I/O 2013

This weeks' Google I/O developer conference was the first in several years where the company limited its keynote appearance to a single day. In this single 3-hour session, what Google abstained from speaking about may very well have been more telling than what they did announce - Android, Chrome, Google Services, and everything in-between.
