Google’s mobile future is in App Streaming

Google's next big play for the mobile universe (with Android, for now) is in the ability to stream an app instead of downloading it to your device. Instead of downloading an app to book a hotel, for instance, then tossing the app away after you're done with your vacation, Google wants you to stream it. You'll see the app pretty much the same way you'd see any other app, but all of its content will be hosted on the internet.

YouTube Music: Reviewing the basics

Today we're having a look at the basic features of YouTube Music. After a few days of using the service, we'll return with judgement - for now, it's all about discussing what you're able to do. Is YouTube Music worth the price you pay for YouTube Red? Sort of - incidentally you don't need to pay for YouTube Red to get many of the most awesome parts of YouTube Music. We're anticipating that point will be a bit confusing for users (at first). Google's prompts should do the trick once they're inside the app.

Google AboutMe is your info placard for the public

Google appears to have torn another feature from Google+ with "Google AboutMe," a public place for your "About" information. Here you'll place your personal contact info, work contact info, Education and Work History, Places you live and have lived, Gender, Birthday, Occupation, and a list of sites where you contribute content or participate in social networks. At this time, it would appear that this system is not entirely separate from Google+ (it still has the Google Plus-centric "Circles"), but as with Google Photos, it certainly could be.

Five good reasons to be excited for Snapdragon 820

Qualcomm's finalized the Snapdragon 820 hardware, the software is ready, and now we just need to see devices. Turns out, though, that there's more than running your favorite apps and getting you online to the newest chipset in Qualcomm's line-up; in fact, there are plenty of value-adds that might just give devices an edge over the ubiquitous iPhone and other handsets.

The chipmaker showed off its newest WiGig tech alongside the Snapdragon 820 in New York City today, baking a tri-wireless chipset into a compact desktop router that could turn a smartphone into a desktop replacement.

TAG Heuer Connected watch revealed – aimed directly at Apple

The folks at TAG Heuer have revealed a smartwatch that runs Google's Android Wear software. Inside you'll find Google's software - very similar to the software you'll find on devices like the Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch, while on the outside you'll find luxury hardware the likes of which are only otherwise delivered with a far more expensive piece of equipment. This is the first time an Android Wear watch has been released by a manufacturer that hadn't previously released any devices with Android onboard.

Apple iPad Pro begins online sales November 11, in stores later this week

Following its big debut in September, the question on everyone's mind about the new iPad Pro has been when it will go on sale.

The company adds that the device will be arriving in stores later in the week, without specifying an exact date, however, by Friday seems like a safe assumption.

Dieselgate fallout: Now EVERY US diesel will get new EPA test

The fallout from Volkswagen's emissions cheating continues, with the US Environmental Protection Agency now planning to test every diesel from every manufacturer. VW's admission that its cars would not only fail emissions tests, but that it had installed software into millions of vehicles that would falsify its output to meet the requirements of the EPA and similar agencies in other countries under testing conditions, have prompted a complete overhaul of how such processes operate.

Forget hoverboards, this 3D printed electric skateboard is cooler

Hoverboards that don't really hover may be fashionable right now, but a 3D printed open-source electric skateboard has the potential for far more impact. Faraday Motion's HyperBoard R2, tucked away at the Stratasys booth at SEMA 2015 this week, takes the flexibility of custom 3D printing and uses it to deliver a personal transporter that can be adapted to the needs - and budget - of each user.

VW dieselgate worsens as EPA adds Porsche and Audi 3.0L

Included in this NOV is Volkswagen AG, Audi AG and Volkswagen Group of America, Inc as well as Porsche AG and Porsche Cars North America.

Today's notice includes a number of vehicles from the past couple of years.

New Star Trek TV show launching on CBS and All Access

This morning CBS announced that an all-new (not reruns) Star Trek TV series will be launching in January of 2017. That's a long ways off. But it will have Alex Kurtzman, Co-Writer and Producer of the Blockbuster Films "Star Trek" and "Star Trek Into Darkness" as Executive Producer, so that'll be neat. This TV show is thus far just called "Star Trek", but may have a different name by the time it launches. We're crossing our fingers for a whole new era with callbacks - rather than the oddity that was Enterprise.
