If you like the sound of your voice, today is your lucky day. Google has released a new Chrome extension called “OK Google” which allows users to make voice commands to their browser. The Google Voice Search Hotword extension is available now in the Chrome Web Store. If the user wants to use voice commands, all they have to do is use the “OK Google” hotword first.
It didn’t take a rocket scientist to predict the 2012 and 2013 versions of Asus and Google’s Nexus 7 tablets were going be the focus of a stack of Black Friday and Cyber Monday special deals. After all, one is possibly the hottest, most technically impressive cheap 7-incher around and the other the textbook definition of oldie but goldie.

If Verizon can’t deliver in due time, what can one do other than take his business elsewhere? Buy the Ellipsis 7 instead? No way, especially as T-Mobile now offers the LTE Nexus 7 2013 sans any kind of upfront payment.
Just like its forefather, Google and LG’s Nexus 5 is shaping up to be a slippery little devil, with initial Play Store stocks depleted in no time and a new batch only due out in a couple of weeks. Thankfully, Sprint has your back if patience is not your best trait, albeit there’s something in it for America’s number three wireless service provider as well.
Recently I provided 5 thoughts on the Best Buy customer experience. For the most part, they weren’t kind thoughts. Some readers chided me for expressing my preference for buying online and for “showrooming” at the store. So I decided recently that instead of ordering an HP Chromebook 11 online and waiting seemingly forever to receive it, more »
This might sound like the least of your concerns right now and the most unimportant piece of good news to come out of Google’s lair over the past 24 hours, but Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus has just gotten a fresh software update. Nope, unfortunately it’s not the drool-worthy spanking new Android 4.4 KitKat, but the more »
