Over the years, Google has killed many services it offered including my favourite Google Reader. And, now it is time for Google Code to bite the dust. As a developer, I started actively using Github to manage my WordPress plugins. I like the interface GitHub provides and definitely the ability of git to control all the changes….
When Apple announced their super huge bendable iPhone 6 Plus, I’d like to think, Google was smiling in the background saying… “Wait for it”. Today, Google announced the new Nexus in a size that dwarfs the new iPhone and the iPhone 6 plus! Nexus 6 The Nexus 6 boasts of a 6″ Quad HD display, a…
I don’t remember seeing this happen, but the mighty Gmail and Google+ are down. Google’s App Status Dashboard tells you that Gmail is currently down. I’m surprised they don’t have a similar one for Google+.
I mentioned last week that I purchased the Nexus 5. I received the device on Monday morning and immediately got down to using it. I will admit that I bid a sad farewell to my Blackberry Torch 9800 which served me well for the past three years.
