Google Now is a useful feature in Android that learns what you’re interested in and automatically offers you personalized information. This information got even better this week as Google Now monitors price changes of flights you’ve researched on Google Flights. When the price changes, preferably downward, Google Now will push a card detailing the changes. This is done automatically and requires no action by the user.
Beleagured Taiwanese company HTC got a boost from Google with a rumored partnership to build the upcoming 9-inch Nexus tablet. Neither company has confirmed the alliance but “people familiar with the matter” say engineers are collaborating on the next Nexus tablet. If true, it’s a boon for the troubled company that is trying to stay relevent in the smartphone market.
Samsung recently unveiled the Galaxy Note 4, extending its smartphone line with pen input. The upcoming Note smartphone will have a 5.7-inch screen that is operated by touch and accepts handwritten input with the Samsung S-pen used on all products in the Note line.
The Note 4 will be available in 140 countries, including the US from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular.
The Gear S will be a big competitor of the Apple Watch, and surpasses it with full cellular capability which is why it will be sold by major carriers. It will also pair with Samsung phones to display phone information on the wrist.
AT&T is not stating the price nor configurations it will have for the Gear S.
