Nexus One Google Phone might arrive on T-Mobile January 5thAccording to Reuters, Google will have not one, but two versions of the Nexus One phone. One unlocked and one on a service contract with T-Mobile. The phone may be available directly from Google as soon as January 5th in fact.

This is the second confirmation of that date, so it is looking very likely. So if you want this bad boy you won’t have long to wait. Obviously we are hoping that the unlocked version is pretty cheap.

Google Nexus One makes an appearanceWell, now we know that the Google Nexus One exists. Perhaps there really is a Santa Claus as well. This higher resolution picture is supposedly the Nexus One and is the talk of the internets.

Physically thisthe same as the HTC Passion, without the HTC logo on top. We hear ya, you can’t wait to give this Google Phone a try. We agree. They had us when they tweeted “Google Phone = iPhone + a little extra screen and a scroll wheel. Great touch screen, and Android.”

Clever Google Chrome commercial

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

Check out this awesome Google Chrome commercial. They are really on to something here the way they have unleashed this one. And of course we always suspected that behind the scenes, rubber bands and hammers and stuff all make the Google machine invincible.

It’s not only creative, but kinda informative as well. Most importantly it’s fun to watch. Google has taken over the rest of the world, so maybe artsy fartsy movies will be next. So let me ask you, does this clever commercial make you want to use Chrome even more, or not?

Posted in YouTube by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2009

Get ready for 1080p video on YouTubeWord is that Google is looking to get into the pay-per-episode TV business with YouTube and offer streaming content for purchase using a service that would compete with iTunes downloads. According to Peter Kafka of MediaMemo, several sources have indicated that YouTube wants to offer streaming TV episodes for a fee.

It would be similar to what Apple already offers: a $1.99 cost per episode. Apparently both sides are in early negotiations and they are “optimistic” that a deal can be reached.

Microsoft offers money for News Corp to de-Google content

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on November 23rd, 2009

bingRupert Murdoch isn’t very happy with Google making News Corp content available to everybody, but word is that Microsoft is offering to pay News Corp to de-index its news sites from Google, which would probably drive those searching for News Corp sites to Bing.

If that happens, UK folks would probably see The Times and The Sun no longer on Google News. Murdoch has previously threatened to remove News Corp content from Google, so this could prove an added incentive for him to do so.

Chrome OS and Android will one day merge

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on November 23rd, 2009

Chrome OS and Android will one day mergeSergey Brin says that “Android and Chrome will likely converge over time.” It’s unclear when this might occur though. In fact, Google CEO Eric Schmidt attempts to downplay the difference between Google’s operating systems in a recent CNET interview, which makes us wonder if Google has a clear idea of where this is going.

Schmidt prefers not to “prejudge the success” of each. “The future will unfold as it does,” he says, and the open-source community will determine the natural fit. I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2009

Google's new Search Sidebar could streamline searchesGoogle is doing just fine in the search business, so no one would blame them if they just left things as they were and kept raking in the dough. But it’s nice to see that the search giant is still paying attention to details and willing to try some new things.

Google’s vice president of search product and user experience recently stated that Google will soon begin testing of a new permanent sidebar on its results page. The new version allows you to narrow a search to specific categories, and is more attractive. Plus, the sidebar will be, conveniently and permanently displayed on the left side of the page.

Google’s Chrome OS revealed

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on November 19th, 2009

Google's Chrome OS revealedWe now have more details about the Google Chrome OS, which is a stripped-down Linux that should boot very quickly and launch a browser (Chrome). Everything that you do is web-based. Apparently users will have to buy a Chrome OS machine if they want it. Chrome will run on Intel and ARM processors.

According to Google it’s secure because the data is stored on a remote server, however if someone gets your password, well they have access to everything. They do say that Apps are more secure, because they have access to nothing, just like web apps on other OS.

Google updates Google Earth iPhone appGoogle has updated it’s Google Earth iPhone app. The updates come about a year after the original Google Earth iPhone App was released. Google Earth 2.0 will play nice with the iPhone and iPod Touch, and the new version has a bunch of new features, like the ability to view maps that you create on your PC on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

That one should prove most convenient. Another feature is the updated icon selection, which makes it easier to use. When you touch an icon on the app it will glow, and if you touch more than one icon at once it will take you to a list of icons so you can select the right one.

Not a good day to be TomTom and Garmin

Posted in GPS by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2009

Not a good day to be TomTom and GarminLooks like both TomTom and Garmin might be having a bit of a bad day to put it mildly, thanks to the announcement of Google Maps Navigation. As the graph shows, things are not looking good. Nope. Not at all.

GPS makers can at least take some comfort in the fact that the new Google Maps Navigation is available on Android 2.0 at the moment, which requires you to have a specific phone to download the maps real time. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

Google launching music service?

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on October 21st, 2009

Google launching music service?Word is that Google is planning to launch a music service and according to sources quoted by TechCrunch, the company is securing content from major labels right now. One source calls the service “Google Audio”.

It’s unclear if this music platform will be download-based like iTunes, or streaming-based like Pandora, but apparently it will be available to “at least” the US. Google already has a music service in China that lets users download tracks for free, and it has a music search engine that can be accessed by typing “music:” before your query in the search box. However when you access a song that way they aren’t available to listen to.

Google Wave communication and collaboration toolGoogle has now started public testing by invitation only of Wave, a new online tool for communication and collaboration between people online. Wave has been described by its designer as what email would look like if it was invented today, and contains real-time communication through text, photos, video, maps and more according to Google.

The communication using the Wave tool is live somewhat like an instant messenger allowing users to see others edits as they make them, character by character. Should a users not be online at the same time, the communications will still be available to view at a later date, much like emails waiting in your inbox.
