Google is known for integrating its services across the cloud for seamless connectivity and access. And a new change now allows users to post reminders using Google homepage on their web browser. All they have to do is type out “Remind me to ….” and Google will bring out a layout where the user will be asked to enter the date, time and other related particulars for the reminder. It’s a very novel addition since users aren’t always around their smartphones and they can just as easily set reminders using...

In its current form, the Google Play Store categorizes apps based on free or paid. However, what these listings fail to mention is the fact that most of those free apps don’t mention in-app purchases. While they’re free to download, these games usually don’t let the users go along too far in the gameplay without making an in-app purchase. It seems like this has finally hit Google as it will stop listing such apps as “free” in the Play Store. This comes after EU regulators pushed Google to make these changes....

Google has allowed users to flag inappropriate content on the Play Store to make the app hub a cleaner place for all. However, this feature was only available on the Android version of the Play Store while it didn’t exist on the web version. This was slightly odd as changes like these usually take effect simultaneously. And it seems like Google has realized that with the web version of the Play Store now getting the ‘Flag as inappropriate‘ option. Unfortunately, it’s not as straight forward as clicking the button...

  Google Play Movies arrived in Ireland just a few days ago, but until now there was no way to easily watch content on your TV. Starting today, now you can buy a Chromecast directly from Google Play for €39, which converts to about $53 US. It’s no Android TV, but it’s a great way to watch content from cast-enabled apps. The Chromecast ships in 1-2 business days, so if you order it today it will presumably arrive by the end of this week. So if you’ve been wanting a Chromecast, go ahead and buy one from Google...

If you’ve somehow missed the numerous times the Nexus 5 has been discounted on eBay, you have another chance to own Google’s latest Nexus flagship, this time in both the 16 and 32GB variants. In eBay’s Daily Deals, the 16GB Nexus 5 is currently selling for $334.99, while the 32GB can be had for $374.99.

Samsung’s enterprise solution called KNOX was quite heavily endorsed last year and even received approval from the U.S. government for use by its officials. Samsung was also revealed to be contributing the work done with KNOX to Google which would mean that future iterations of Android will have a KNOX like solution by default. This seems like enough reason for Samsung to ditch it as having two services of the same nature would make it rather redundant. The report which generates from Forbes goes onto suggest that Samsung’s...
