Google reportedly ready to cut carriers in on Wallet

If mobile payment solutions confuse you, don’t feel bad. With so much going on both before and after Apple Pay, there’s a lot to keep track of, and all of it seems to be so confusing.

Part of the issues Google faced with Wallet were carriers. Now, it seems Google is wiling to let carriers in on Wallet, and is reportedly offering up a cut of their precious ad revenue.

YouTube for Kids detailed: here’s why it’s necessary

YouTube for Kids detailed: here’s why it’s necessary

This week we're hearing - again - that Google will be releasing a YouTube app made specifically for children. As YouTube is the primary app for video content from the web on Android - and is used by most iPhone users for video content on the web as well - it makes perfect sense that a child-friendly option, YouTube for Kids, would be made available. Why, you say? Why, you might ask as a person who does not have children playing with smart devices every single day of the year?

Galaxy S6 details teased in Samsung video

Galaxy S6 details teased in Samsung video

This week the folks at Samsung are preparing for release of the Galaxy S6 with a new teaser video. This is "The Next Galaxy", as they've said the past several years, the next big thing to come from Samsung in smartphone form. This device appears to be very flat and without edge-faring displays. There's a second phone, more than likely, making this a double-release, but for now we're limited to this video bit. It's very short, and really doesn't say one whole heck of a lot.

Inbox by Gmail updated for iPad

Inbox by Gmail updated for iPad

Google has updated their iOS build of Inbox by Gmail to work for the Apple iPad. This update brings a couple of changes to the way the app is organized on the tablet vs the ever-so-slightly smaller iPhone. This app continues to be an "invite only" situation, but emailing inbox (at) google (dot) com generally results in an invitation sent rather rapidly. This app is also (obviously) out for Android and was originally released to both platforms essentially at the same time.

Google voices opposition to court-blessed remote hacking

Google voices opposition to court-blessed remote hacking

The Internet has definitely changed the legal landscape by blurring the boundaries of geophysical territories. It has made the world both a smaller and bigger place, and the law is having a bit of trouble trying to catch up. Sometimes, in scrambling to adjust to the times, governments overreact and try to claim overarching powers. Such might be the case with the proposed amendment to the Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 41, which could allow the government to remotely access computers even in other countries.

Google may have foodie social site named ‘Tablescape’ in the works

It’s either a brilliant idea, or a really misguided attempt at social — it’s hard to say right now. According to a new report, Google is once again making an attempt at social, and is focussing on hitting us where it matters. Tablescape is a new project by Google, and is taking a social look at food. Rather than a wide open forum as most social sites are, Tablescape would be entirely focussed on food, and people who photograph their food.
