Google has stopped selling Explorer versions earlier this year, putting former Apple iPod creator and Nest founder Tony Fadell in charge of the project.

This new Google feature lets you avoid crowds at your favorite stores

Google can get away with being creepy in many cases because it’s just so useful. Case in point: Google this week unveiled a new search feature that will let you know whether the store or restaurant you want to visit is likely to be crowded at a given time and can even break down a place’s popularity on different days of the week. How does Google know all this about individual locations? We have no idea, but this is nonetheless an extremely useful new feature. More →

Best of all, perhaps, the Chromecast is wonderfully inexpensive at just $29.99.

For a limited time, however, Amazon is making Google’s Chromecast an even better value by offering a deal that really may be too good to pass up. More →

If you’re not old enough to remember, consider yourself lucky. Email was an overcomplicated, overpriced mess until Gmail introduced a free service with a huge amount of storage, and the rest of the market scrambled to compete.

Today, Gmail packs even more features than it ever has before while still maintaining a very simple overall feel. As is the case with any software, however, a few simple tweaks and hacks can provide some great improvements that many users will wonder how they ever lived without. More →

iPod creator Tony Fadell thinks he can save Google Glass

Though Google Glass debuted with a tremendous amount of hype, the futuristic wearable quickly became the butt of a long-running joke about tech products that no one really wants or needs. Having used Google Glass myself a few times, I can personally attest that the device, while housing incredibly advanced technology, seemed fundamentally pointless.
