Court rules on side of Google Search

Court cases have appeared all over the world in connection to Google Search, and at least in the United States, Google seems to be winning. A case had been filed against Google by S. Louis Martin, the owner of CoastNews who alleged Google was pushing his results too far down in searches. The case has now been heard, and a judge with the San Francisco Superior Court feels Google is in the right.

Android 5.0 update for Nexus 4 ‘locked and loaded’, likely rolling out soon

Asus ZenWatch is back in stock at Best Buy, ‘coming soon’ to Google Play

Another Android Wear release, another series of availability hiccups. But all’s well that ends well, and Best Buy seems to have overcome its Asus ZenWatch faux pas.

Android Wear 5.0 Lollipop update detailed early, looking sweet as… lollipops

Google is working on several fronts to improve the Android user experience and it’s just as important for Big G to bring Lollipop goodies to smartwatch owners as it is to leave KitKat behind on as many smartphones and tablets as possible.

Nexus 6 priced at $250 with AT&T pacts, pre-orders start November 12

There used to be a time when we’d wonder how can Google find sufficient funds to keep the Nexus project afloat, with profit margins so obviously low. We’re well past that now, we’re afraid, as the Nexus product roster has stopped being about affordability with the introductions of the latest 6-inch smartphone and 9-inch tablet.

Sony SmartWatch 3 now shipping from Google Play, backordered at Verizon

With beautiful, round-faced wearable pieces like Motorola’s Moto 360 or LG’s G Watch R available, as well as ultra-low-cost smartwatches such as the Asus ZenWatch, and Samsung’s Gear S supporting standalone 3G, you were probably under the impression no one cared much about Sony’s SmartWatch 3.

LG G3 to get Android 5.0 first

Google’s line of Nexus devices may be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop soon, but the LG G3 will be the first phone to get the latest software.

Google working to restock Nexus 6 every Wednesday until demand is met

Google was ominously quiet on the heels of Nexus 6’s semi-failed launch from last week, but the search giant finally has some good news to offer “Shamu” fans”. Before starting your celebratory dance, let us stress this is merely a (small) step in the right direction, not a magic solution to Big G and Motorola’s manufacturing woes.

Nexus 6 pre-orders go live stateside… for a second, get pulled almost instantly

We told you Google was having trouble mass-producing its latest Nexus installments and meeting demand, even more than usual, and N6’s failed US launch just adds fuel to the speculation fire.

Nexus 5 returns to Play Store, same price, same specs as before

Tipped for a candy-coated Android 5.0 Lollipop makeover sometime next month, Google and LG’s Nexus 5 suddenly went from available to out of stock a few days back. Optimists saw this as a possible sign some sort of spin-off was coming, whereas pessimists anticipated a premature discontinuation.

Sony SmartWatch 3 listed on Google Play at $250, release date a question mark

As more and more players join the wearable game, it’s getting increasingly hard to stand out. Even for market veterans such as Sony. Their rookie smartwatch effort came to light in 2012, before Apple even pondered a dive in the shifting waters, and now the third entry in the Sony SmartWatch franchise is inching closer and closer to a commercial bow.
