Google+ cuts ties with YouTube with one important warning

Google+ cuts ties with YouTube with one important warning

Google announces cutting software ties between YouTube and their social network Google+. No longer will YouTube require a Google+ profile for new users looking to upload, comment, or create a channel. No longer will comments posted on a YouTube video also be posted on a user's Google+ profile. Freedom from one or the other is upon us. No longer will Google be pushing Google+ directly in to the comments section of YouTube, and both parties will be the better for it.

Razer OUYA acquisition is all about games

Razer OUYA acquisition is all about games

Here's why being acquired by a company like Razer is great: not only will OUYA continue to be made in hardware form, the software will be expanding. According to Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, Razer has acquired the software assets of OUYA and will start this party off right - by integrating OUYA games and their store into the Razer Forge TV - that's their Android TV device revealed earlier this year at CES 2015. Not only that, but the OUYA gaming console will continue to live on, and maybe even grow!

OnePlus 2 released in controlled leak

OnePlus 2 released in controlled leak

This morning several images of what we must assume is the final model OnePlus 2 have "leaked" via microbloggers. This device is supposed to be revealed in its entirety later today via a virtual reality launch as outlined earlier this year and pushed with a set of Google Cardboard units earlier this month. These images come with such high quality photography skills apparent that we must assume they've been leaked by OnePlus themselves - though with just a few hours to go before the final reveal, it's not like it matters all that much.

Microsoft just released an awesome Android launcher

Microsoft just released an awesome Android launcher

Microsoft's Arrow Launcher is out today in Beta, creating for the Google-made software an environment in which quickness is key. While the app may be in a "private beta" for now, Microsoft has also released the APK to the public - no need to participate in the troubleshooting involved in a Beta if you do not want. Inside this launcher is a reorganization of efforts for the Android universe, making three screens the center of the software: apps, contacts, and reminders. From here you'll find yourself cramped in - in a good way.

Chromecast birthday means Google delivers presents to Android TV

Chromecast birthday means Google delivers presents to Android TV

Happy Birthday, Chromecast! It's been two years since the tiny HDMI-based TV dongle launched at Google, and Google wants to celebrate. To do so, they've delivered a collection of freebies or otherwise interesting trial-offer sorts of gifts to the public. To those that already have Chromecast or Android TV devices, that is to say. These tiny bits include everything from 90 days of Google Play Music Unlimited to a week of Hulu. Meanwhile Chromecast itself is at just about the lowest price it's ever been, sale or no, with deals for doubling down.

Fallout Shelter Android release this August with Mr. Handy

Smash hit mobile app Fallout Shelter, from the folks that brought you Fallout, is coming to Android. This app launched soon after the next Fallout game (Fallout 4) was announced earlier this year, launching only on the Apple App Store. That was June - almost immediately after launching, Fallout Shelter became the number one most downloaded game in 48 countries and the most downloaded app of ANY KIND in 25 countries. Needless to say, it's hyped up - and of course a very fine game in its own right.

Some Google+ Local pages are getting the ax next week

Some Google+ Local pages are getting the ax next week

Starting July 28, Google plans to shut down abandoned Google+ Local pages. Such information comes from a statement that was published by a user on the Local Search Forum. Businesses that worry they may be on the chopping block needn't panic, however -- all it takes to keep your page is verification, so if you've been putting that off, now is the time to get busy. With this, it seems Google is keen on separating its Google Plus and local worlds.

Why I won’t be buying a new Moto X or G

Why I won’t be buying a new Moto X or G

Next week Motorola will likely reveal the next Moto X, a flagship phone that'll be better than any they've made before. What we're exploring today is the idea that Motorola already made a device so good that there's no reason to upgrade. What I'm suggesting here is that Motorola's 2014 Moto X is so good in basically every way a smartphone should be, that users might be better off buying that phone than whatever Motorola reveals this year. As we've said before, this is also true of the original Moto G.

Associated Press to publish massive historical video library

Recent history has been memorialized on video, and the Associated Press wants to make sure you and everyone else can watch those videos. As such it is working with British Movietone to upload 550,000 or so videos to YouTube -- collectively amounting to more than a million minutes of digitized footage -- across two channels. This represents the biggest upload of historical video footage to the video website, and will aid in reliving big moments, studying history, verifying facts, and more.
