‘Google Now’ watch due sooner, not later

‘Google Now’ watch due sooner, not later

New chatter hitting the internet these past days suggest that Google is indeed readying a smartwatch with Google Now functionality at its core. The word comes directly on the heels of a Google+ report from Android Police lead   which indicates the project could be known as “Gem”. Given the “sooner rather than later” we should see some noise at the Android 4.4 KitKat debut which now seems likely for the end of October.

I posited, back in January, that a Google Now watch would make for a great wearable device. Nothing too deep into Android or with Play Store integration, but something that knows you and understands what’s most important. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have your watch alert you of sports scores, calendar appointments, stock prices, and other pertinent details without much else getting in the way?

Settle Those Song Lyric Arguments with TuneWiki

I don’t know how many times that I have had intense debates/arguments with friends and family over song lyrics. Like many of you, I have the idiot savant ability to retain most of the song lyrics I have ever heard, and will fight to the death when someone questions my recall. Probably the most debated case in point for my family is the “Lollipop Guild” song sang by the Munchkins in the Wizard of Oz. I’m here to tell you, they are not singing “Lollipop Kids”, but “Lollipop Guild”. And now, being an Android user, there is a tool to prove my case, along with many other lyrics in the form of the new Android App from TuneWiki.
