Google have just launched Chrome beta onto the Google Play store, available to download right now. No, you haven’t travelled back in time. Unlike earlier this year, when the beta was the only available option, this re-release is alongside the stable version so that you can have a choice of which version you want to download.
Earlier today I was browsing the Behance network, when I stumbled across this neat little project. The Android Charging Station is basically a massive Android mascot, with lots of charging cables sticking out. After a little bit of ‘googling’, I found that they are actually being used by Google themselves at events, to help ensure the reporters always have enough juice left on their phones. Google looks like an extremely fun company to work at.
There has already been some amazing stuff to be revealed at CES this year, but most of it has been expected, with 4K TVs and large screen phones dominating the headlines. But this new piece of technology is definitely something we didn’t see coming.
Chameleon is a beautiful launcher for Android which has risen to power in the last year, but it’s currently only available for tablets. However today, in a video uploaded by the company detailing upcoming changes, Chameleon Launcher for phones has made its first appearance.
When Facebook announced timeline profiles last year, it was met with a very mixed response. Many people, myself included, liked the modern design, however many were opposed to any change at all. Those people will be unhappy to learn that, only a matter of months after pushing the timeline feature to everybody, Facebook is changing the profile page once again.
In the last few years, watches have become more and more advanced, almost becoming mini computers. Obviously, these watches are usually more of a gimmick than anything that could be used from day-to-day life, but what it the technology giants got involved?
Since the recent highs of Android over the past couple of years, the Android mascot has become hugely recognisable. It’s cute form-factor is nearly always stood by the side of any phone advertisement, proudly promoting the product as an Android. However the little green robot we all know and love was almost a pretty-darn-terrifying, swirly eyed looking death machine…or at least that’s what it looked like.
The battle between Google and Apple will probably never end. Both companies produce amazing products which are tested and compared each year, and usually the public decides on a winner. One thing we never thought we’d see though, is Google recommending the iPad in one of its key features, Google Now on Android Jelly Bean.
After launching on iOS months ago, Facebook have launched ‘Pages Manager’ forAndroid. As the name would suggest, Pages Manager allows you to, well, manage your Facebook page. The app shows you the latest insights of the page, such as people who have recently liked the page, interacted with it and have shared it. It looks very similar to the standard Facebook app but is much easier to operate for people who mainly use Facebook for their page.
