Google Pixel 3 XL Photo Leak Kind Of Confirm It Will Have A Notch. Sad!

ASUS has done it. So did OnePlus, Vivo, LG, Huawei and a bunch of others. And now, it looks like search giant Google’s next flagship smartphone will have it too. Yes.

Google Puts Mario On Google Maps For A Week To Mark Mario Day

Google Maps is as useful as it is and therefore, I see no real purpose in sprucing it up with Easter egg, but that does not stop Google from trying to make using Maps fun and the latest ‘thing’ that will make using the Maps fun (at least fans of Super Mario Bros. will be, I think) is the inclusion of the mustachioed plumber and his trusty Kart on the Maps. To mark Mario’s apparent special day, which happens to be on March 10 (that’s MAR10, btw), the team over at Google Maps collaborates with Nintendo to let the world famous plumber and his Kart lead you to your destination.

Now, You Can Explore Japan’s Odate City Thru Akita Dogs With ‘Dog View’

First, there’s Google Maps, then Google Street View follows, offering users a more up close and personal view of the place they are looking at. Then someone took it upon herself to create her own street view (more like mountain view, really) in a place not touched by Google’s mapping team by strapping cameras on sheep, calling it SheepView 360. The latter is, obviously, not an official endeavor. It did, however, draw the attention of Google. Continue reading Now, You Can Explore Japan’s Odate City Thru Akita Dogs With ‘Dog View’

Google Turned Controversial Cheeseburger Emoji Into Real Burgers

After serving up what could be decidedly un-American cheeseburger emoji, Google office in Seattle has reportedly served an edible version to its employees. Apparently, it was very aptly called “Android burger” and it was exactly as you have expected, a slide of cheese between the beef patty and bottom bun. Clearly, that is not how a cheeseburger should be and I am speaking a huge burger fan. Even mass-marketed burger joints like MacDonald’s also know how it should be done. There is really no need for debate over which is the “right way.” It is too obvious. Continue reading Google Turned Controversial Cheeseburger Emoji Into Real Burgers
