Google Nexus Plus: Somewhat of a Reality?

Google Nexus Plus: Somewhat of a Reality?

When I say Nexus Plus, you know I mean Nexus+. We've got a rumor here published by one above-average unbelievable source, that being a "G00gle Plus" account on Facebook that publishes information like a real source only to get followers - and heck, why not? Such things can be fun, right? Only here's the catch: their newest update has some really REALLY juice information you'll not be able to get anywhere else, it's no copied-down watered-down re-release like the rest of their statuses. This newest status says they've seen the newest Google Nexus device, and they're saying that this "Nexus 3 (name not finalized)" will have "the special one click sharing button for Google+."

Facebook's "awesome" announcement is set to be revealed in just a few hours time, but according to reports it won't be the so-called Project Spartan intended to take on Apple's iOS app dominance. In-browser Skype video calls are likely to be the big unveil this week, it's believed, with TechCrunch's sources suggesting the Spartan charge won't be made until sometime between July 15 (when Facebook is apparently pushing developers to be complete by) and August 1. However, those sources are also sharing some tidbits to further whet our appetites - and raise questions over just who Facebook's target really is, Apple or Google.

Facebook blocks friend export tool in Google+ snub

Facebook has already hinted at an "awesome" launch this week to drag the attention back from Google+, but in the meantime it looks like the social network is experimenting with ways to make exporting Facebook friends to the new rival more difficult. Facebook Friend Exporter, a Chrome extension many had been using to extract emails of those you're linked with on the service, making adding them to Google+ more straightforward, has been blocked, seemingly under a freshly-enforced section of Facebook's TOS that bans automated data harvesting.

T-Mobile Nexus S Finally Gets Google Talk Video Chat Over 3G/4G

T-Mobile Nexus S Finally Gets Google Talk Video Chat Over 3G/4G

Google Talk and Apple FaceTime both offer nice video calling services, but they differ in that FaceTime requires a Wi-Fi connection to work. Google's offering was more ideal, but it didn't quite pan out for T-Mobile customers. Since its launch back in May, Nexus S owners with the carrier have not been able to video chat over the cellular network. Well, that has changed today.
