Not a surprise at this point, but no less deserved. If you don't have one yet, make it your priority, this phone is that great. Also great to see +Google Nexus​ team with a home run device!
Which smartphone topped the competition this year?

According to Variety's sources, Google is talking to third-party consumer electronic manufacturers about creating devices that work like Google Home. If you recall, this is the same approach Google took with third-party TV and speaker manufacturers when they allowed them to ship Google Cast technology on their devices.

Google Assistant, just like Google Cast, will be the platform that will enable both first-party hardware (Google Home) and third-party hardware products (yet to come).

Good idea, if it works. Make it the de facto standard and it doesn't matter if it's the de jure standard.

As per +Brandon Lall​, Google is rolling out a bunch of new navigation voice commands to Google Maps. Here's a list of the voice commands you can say:

•Mute." or "Mute voice guidance."
•"Unmute." or "Unmute voice guidance."
•"Show traffic." or "Hide traffic."
•"Show satellite." or "Hide satellite."
•"Navigate home." or "Navigate to Starbucks."
•"Show route overview." or "Show alternate routes."
•"What road is this?"
•"What’s my next turn?"
•"What's my ETA?"
•"How's traffic ahead?" or "How's traffic to home?"
•"What's the weather like?"
•"Avoid tolls." or "Enable tolls."
•"Avoid highways." or "Enable highways."
•"Avoid ferries." or "Enable ferries."
•"Exit navigation."
•"Call Mom."
•"Find gas stations." or "Find restaurants."
•"Send a text to Larry." or "Send a SMS to Sergey, I'm feeling lucky."
•"What's the weather like?" or "How's the weather in Seattle?"
"•Play some jazz." or "Play happy birthday on Google Play Music."
•"What's the closest hotel?"
•"When's my next meeting?"
 
"Once in either of these modes, you can fire up voice commands by saying “OK, Google” or by tapping on that microphone icon. After the 3-dot animations starts, you are free to begin controlling Maps with things like “Mute voice guidance,” “Show traffic,” “What road is this,” “What’s the weather like,” “Enable tolls,” “Find restaurants,” “Play some jazz,” or “What’s the closest hotel?" ~Droid Life
Through a new blog post, Google is doing its best to make sure you are always getting the most out of one of its greatest apps, Google Maps. The post talks about using voice commands to get you to that next destination, tweak settings, avoid tolls, and even get out of navigation if you just …

Introducing The Keyword.

If you're like me and you like to keep up with the latest news and information regarding Google products, then you'll know that the company has a bunch of individual blogs dedicated to each of their products. Google has realized that they have a lot of product blogs, so they have decided to create The Keyword—a new central blog for the latest Google news and information.

Google says The Keyword consolidates and replaces 19 of their existing official blogs, in English. However, the company notes that over time they will expand to include other languages and countries.

#Google #TheKeyword
Welcome to our new central source for news and stories about Google, with all the stuff we had across 19 blogs, in one place.

This log also includes the date and time when you entered a number, along with your IP address — which could, contrary to a 2013 Apple claim that “we do not store data related to customers’ location,” identify a customer’s location. Apple is compelled to turn over such information via court orders for systems known as “pen registers” or “tap and trace devices,” orders that are not particularly onerous to obtain, requiring only that government lawyers represent they are “likely” to obtain information whose “use is relevant to an ongoing criminal investigation.”

Apple likes to make boasts about how secure its Messages app is, but new revelations from The Intercept detail how Apple keeps a log of every iPhone user's texting contacts that they will readily share with law enforcement authorities when served with a court order. Now this isn’t a Snowden level

This has to be one of the best looking Best Westerns around. They have lavish halls that are often used for concerts and major parties. Even with its age it is probably still the best hotel for events in the area. I have never had a chance to stay in the hotel rooms themselves.

Went on a Saturday night and mostly stayed upstairs in the Dancehall Reggae/Soca room. Cover charge was a ridiculous $60 for men and $40 for women, but we knew someone so it was much cheaper for us. Parking is...well this is NYC so good luck. Bartender made some nice and strong drinks though so nothing lost there.

After being to a few other hotels and resorts in the area this is still one of my favorites. My room was bored through the Hotel Tonight app and got lucky with a super nice suite.

Ended up here by accident as we were waiting for others. Ended up being pretty cool by the bar area, until they closed the open air side for the night. Drinks were ok, but NY pricey.

Standard Subway store with standard customer service. It does look a bit out of place next to the corner store, but I think they are catering mostly to Newark Beth Israel Hospital nearby.
