The Google Cardboard virtual reality headset and app platform has been out for a while now — it was introduced at the Google I/O developer conference in June 2014 — but it’s not the most well understood technology out there.
Perhaps the best way to understand it is to try it out. Fortunately, Google has been showcasing Cardboard-compatible apps in a special collection in the Google Play Store

Today marks two years since Google debuted Chromecast, the small and affordable streaming device. To celebrate its second birthday, the company's letting owners get in on a couple promotional offers: a free movie rental and access to 90 days of Play Music. Google did something similar last year, but back then it only included the complimentary subscription to its audio-streaming service
For those of you don't have a Chromecast yet, the deal will be available until December 31st, so you still have some time to take advantage of this deal.

One off? But there are loads of them...
The Google Nexus phone has, in many ways, helped revolutionise the mobile market in much the same way that the Apple iPhone has. The Nexus devices may not have set the world alight in terms of sales, but they have served as important reference points for Android manufacturers. And some of them have been rather good
Google had never planned on making the Nexus series into a staple of the annual smartphone diet. The original Nexus One handset was designed to give Android a push in the right direction, and nothing more. It obviously worked, as Android now holds over 75% of the mobile market in Europe

At IDF 2015, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced Tuesday that Intel is partnering with Google to bring Intel's RealSense 3D camera to Google's Project Tango smartphone. Krzanich showed off a prototype of the un-named smartphone prototype, which is running the company's Atom processor and comes with a 6-inch display

If you want to be found, you need to be visible.
The rise of smartphones has intensified the importance of being visible, especially for local searches
In short, there’s a pretty strong argument these days for a brand to consider local search. Local search engine optimization is pretty significant, and small businesses need to heed to the importance of local SEO to grow their footprint and to make sure that patrons are actually visiting their establishment.
Your Google My Business page should tell a prospective customer what you do, what your hours of operation are, where you’re located, and whatever else would help someone say “hey, I’d like to check this place out for [some type of errand].”
As before, make sure your Google My Business page actually has the right address information. This also make sure the Google Maps pointer actually knows where you are.

Will human brains and technology merge within the next 30 years? One prominent thinker says so
is a fascinating man. He's an author, a computer scientist, an inventor, and he's currently serving as a Director of Engineering at Google. That's a big position for anyone to fill, seeing that Google has been on the forefront of developing new technologies since 1999.
The tangible achievements and developments led by Kurzweil, such as the voice-recognition technology responsible for enabling Google Now to process your spoken requests, are impressive and innumerable, but it's Kurzweil's futurist predictions that have heads truly spinning

The works of William Shakespeare have been described as unaccessible, but now Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) aim to change that
The theatre company has teamed up with Samsung to launch a new app to bring Shakespeare to life for teenagers.
The free Android app, called RE:Shakespeare, which is aimed at 11 to 18-year-olds, features interactive games and videos that will aid those studying the Bard
Users can also star in their own Dubsmash-style music video and mix the beat-boxer Shlomo with Shakespeare to create their own track. It also gives them a chance to perform on a virtual stage with a 360-degree immersive video, shot on the Royal Shakespeare Theatre stage in Stratford-upon-Avon.
