Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Google's 2016 Nexus smartphone set seems to follow the same rules as previous launches - in which Google is aiming for a top quality phone, not so much a phone that looks pretty. Google seems - in the photos we're seeing today - to be making sure this as-yet-unreleased smartphone is able to do two things: feel good to hold and function especially well.

Google Fiber eyes 24 US locations for high-speed tests

Well, according to an uncovered FCC filing, lightning will actually strike 24 locations in the US where Google has requested permission to test its newer, faster wireless technologies.
