You’re overestimating Google’s driverless cars

You’re overestimating Google’s driverless cars

Never tested in snow or heavy rain, potentially ignoring police, and confused into swerving by crumpled newspaper: Google's self-driving cars face more than a few lingering problems before they're truly ready for the road. The search behemoth's plans to start tests of its control-free "pods" out in public had already collided with California's DMV, which demanded that at least rudimentary steering and pedals be fitted before they'd be road-legal, but that may only be the start of Google's headaches.

Samsung HERE for Android deal sidelines Google

Samsung HERE for Android deal sidelines Google

Samsung has cut a deal with HERE, the Nokia navigation provider, to release HERE for Android, an alternative to Google Maps. We'd noted the HERE-powered turn-by-turn navigation on the Samsung Gear S yesterday, but at the time the significance of the software and services agreement wasn't quite clear: this is Samsung doing its level best to oust Google, and affects all Samsung phones not just a niche smartwatch.

‘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.

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. We’ve heard a bit about the Motorola Shamu being the new Nexus, but could you handle two Nexus smartphones?

T-Mobile boosts Music Freedom; Google Play Music incoming

T-Mobile USA has added six new streaming music services to its Music Freedom, promising audio access from twelve providers without eating into your data allowance, and with Google Play Music still to come. Music Freedom launched two months ago, divorcing services like Spotify and Pandora from each subscriber's data bundle so that they could listen to as much they wanted without encountering overage fees.
