‘Project Wing’ is Google’s plan for same-day drone delivery

‘Project Wing’ is Google’s plan for same-day drone delivery

Yesterday, I posited that Google’s interest in a massive building in Southern California — formerly the home of one of the biggest airplanes ever built — could be for Google X. The massive chamber would be a perfect place to test moonshot ideas, all while keeping them away from prying eyes. If Google were to purchase the facility for X Labs, they could be flying some of the smallest planes in Building 15.

Dear Microsoft: HTC has the right idea

Dear Microsoft: HTC has the right idea

This week I’m meant to publish a review of the HTC One M8 with Windows, the Microsoft-embedded version of the Android original. Once I started using it, devoid of any special or alternate treatment for hardware, it became clear to me that I’d been mistaken: it’s the hardware, not the software, that’d driven me away in the past.

Microsoft may be trolling Google again with cardboard tablet

Microsoft may be trolling Google again with cardboard tablet

Microsoft has a well-documented history of trolling Google. Prior attempts at throwing shade on the search giant have revolved around things like privacy in Gmail, and Google’s scanning of your communiqué for their own good (sarcasm on my part, of course). A new promotional Surface tablet, meant as an announcement of the PC-killer launching in several new countries, might just be another round of trolling from Microsoft.

Are there two Nexus devices coming this Fall from Google?

There is a lot of discussion about Apple’s two new iPhones, where we are almost certainly getting a 4.7-inch screen, then a 5.5-inch model later on. There is another hotly anticipated product lineup coming out this Fall, though, in Google’s Nexus.

LG smartwatch details pre-event: round gets real

In the war for most round smartwatch on the market, Motorola had - until now - held the monopoly with the Moto 360. Or they would have, had they actually had the resources - or the foresight - to release the device before the rest of the world had the chance to release one first. LG is taking the open shot - so is Samsung - and now Motorola may be caught with their pants down.
