Google Search adds NBA video recaps, more leagues to join in the future

nba_google_now_card_screenshot

If you activate Google Search right now and cue any NBA team actively in the playoffs, you are going to get a ton of information. The newest addition is a video recap that links directly to YouTube. If you are on a mobile device, the YouTube app will automatically open. Elsewhere, an embedded video will play rather than opening a new link or tab.

Google is currently working on adding other professional sports leagues for future video recaps.

New Nexus tablet shows up on a Chromium tracker?

Nexus 8 Chromium issue tracker

Rumors regarding Google’s new Nexus tablet are all over the place. The rumors were initially pointing at LG as the manufacturer of the device and afterwards that spot was taken by HTC. Most rumors point to the fact that the device’s name will be Nexus 8 and that the screen will be somewhat larger than the current gen Nexus tablet, that is 7.9 or 8.9″, we’re heard it both ways. Nothing is set it stone, but this is our guess.

In some new developments regarding the new offering from Google, Myce speculates that the tablet has been mentioned in a Chromium issue tracker report. Codename of the device is “Flounder”, which is an oceanic fish. What makes Myce think this is a new Nexus device is the fact that Google named all of its previous Nexus offerings by a fish, their codenames that is. We can also find a word “fingerprint” in the report, which is probably a fingerprint scanner, but the context is unclear.

Along with the new tablet Google is probably going to release a new version of Android, version 4.5, which is also a speculation at this point, they still might surprise everyone and make that jump to version 5.0.

Do you think this leak is a new Nexus tablet? What do you think it will be called and who will manufacture it?

Chrome Remote Desktop: An answer to your desktop access needs

ChromeREmote

Google has released an innovative new app that allows you to access your PC or Mac from your mobile device. This app is absolutely free and is accessible over WiFi, LTE, and 3G. It runs buttery smooth on a solid connection so 3G is not suggested unless you desperately need to send that important file you forgot to yourself.

Google has made it very simple to set up. If you already have Google Chrome for desktop all you need is to download the app for Chrome and then download the app for Android or iPhone.

Google has also hit all areas with this handy app making it available on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. When you have finished the required downloads the app on your PC or MAC will ask some basic questions so that you can allow access to your mobile devices. Once you have gone through the set up and created your pin your PC will show up on the mobile app.

Google has really covered almost all bases with this app the only back draw to it is there is no way to disable the keyboard and mouse while you access. This is inconvenient in a work environment allowing other users to access your machine while you’re away and or seeing what you’re seeing. It is suggested to use a tablet and a mobile keyboard with trackpad. All in all though I give this is a very good app, allowing you to access any set up computer for free and fluidly, and we suggest you check it out.
