Google Maps 9 brings slick new design, Uber and OpenTable integration

Google Maps is now easier on the eyes, and its latest update packs some cool new features, too.

Google announced Wednesday it’s upgrading Maps on both Android and iOS with its Material Design scheme, which features bigger images, bolder colors, more textures, and deeper shadows. It’s the same style that recently hit Gmail, Chrome, and other key Google apps recently.

The update isn’t just about upgrading the app's look. If you’re looking to grab some food, you’ll be able to make a reservation inside the app through a new connection to OpenTable. There’s also deeper integration with Uber; Google Maps will show you estimated fares and launch you directly into the Uber app if it’s installed on your device.

Google says the update should hit the App Store and Google Play over the next few days. It’s optimized for phones and tablets on both platforms. Android users who don’t want to wait for the update can download the APK from sites like Android Police.

The impact on you: Material Design is coming your way whether you use Android or iOS. Google’s design language features a more colorful and elegant interface that is much easier to navigate. Google is seeking to unify the look and feel of its applications regardless of platform. An example is the new Inbox app, which looks and functions nearly identically on Android, Chrome, and iOS.

Living with the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact: Damn, Sony's phones are getting good

Sony's latest flagship phones are like no other devices out there -- and there's a decent chance one of them might be just what you've been looking for.

As a Guy Who Reviews Tons of Android Devices (my official job title), I see a lot of forgettable phones. Phones that are fine but unremarkable -- that get the job done but fail to stand out or make any sort of meaningful lasting impression. 

I've written about this phenomenon before. It's part of something I like to call the "So what?" era of Android phones -- the idea that specs alone are no longer enough and that a phone needs something special in order to make an impact. Some of the most prominent Android devices fail to achieve that and rely mainly on marketing and brand recognition for success.

Sony's smartphones are different. They're distinctive, they're memorable, and they're enjoyable to use. They're by no means perfect, of course, but believe you me: They get a lot of things right.

I recently spent some time living with Sony's Verizon-only Xperia Z3v and came away pleasantly surprised. The Z3v is a tweaked version of Sony's universal flagship, the Xperia Z3, so I've been living with that phone for the past several days to form a comparison. I've also been spending some time with the Xperia Z3 Compact, which is a sized-down version of the Z3 (got all that?!).

Microsoft takes another swing at Apple in a Siri vs. Cortana ad

After repeatedly bashing the MacBook Air in its Surface 3 commercials, Microsoft released yet another ad that takes a swing at Apple. The holiday themed video puts Nokia Lumia 830 side by side with Apple iPhone 6 Plus in a battle of virtual assistants.

Apple iPad Air 2 in 24K gold looks as gaudy as expected

Does the gold iPad Air 2 from Apple look a tad understated for you? Put your worries aside, as the Vietnam-based jewelers from Karalux are now offering Cupertino’s flagship tablet in 24K gold.

Pricing of the gold-plated iPad Air 2 is surprisingly sensible. A 64GB version of the slate draped in real gold costs VND 28 million (about $1315). This means that the gold treatment carries approximately $700 premium over then $600 price tag of a regular 64GB iPad Air 2.

Of course 16GB and 128GB iPad Air 2 models will also be available. Karalux will reward customers who pick up one of their creations by the end of the month with a gold-plated tie pin or a Zippo lighter with the same finish.

Customers with money to burn can also order iPad mini 3 with 24K gold finish. Earlier this month, Karalux also showcased a BlackBerry Passport that has gone through the same treatment.

Short video introduces the Nokia N1

So, Nokia announced an Android-running clone of the Apple iPad mini. There are multiple things wrong with that sentence, but while your rub your eyes in disbelief you can watch this short reveal video as evidence the Nokia N1 is indeed real.

Apple Pay will generate millions of dollars this season

Even a small percentage mounts up....
Apple could generate a billion dollars through its currently U.S.only Apple Pay service across the next year, and is likely to generate millions of dollars on Black Friday sales alone.

Big numbers
That's the best case scenario, and of course Apple is unlikely to share its actual results. The estimates are based on the assumption it takes a small 0.10% fee on each transaction, as is widely believed.
Put that transaction fee up against these stats and you see the potential revenue the company may attract in the USA:
• U.S. consumers spent $735 billion using credit cards in 2005.
• U.S. consumers spent $57.4 billion on Black Friday sales last year.
The potential is limited by the fact that only a few million Americans have an Apple Pay compatible smartphone, although Apple has set the mobile payments industry alight, raising interest in other mobile payments providers. This translates into usage that is bound to put a few dollars under Cupertino's Christmas tree.

More from mobile
The mobile shopping experience extends beyond payments. Consumers use mobile for: Finding deals (97%); comparing prices (96%); researching products (96%); accessing coupons (92%); finding stores (89%); and buying directly from the device (85%), Retale this week claimed.
Android and Apple owners accounted for 89% of Retale's survey group, but Apple users are far more likely to shop using their devices, Retale said.

Additional insights:
• Apple users (89%) are more likely to buy directly from their devices than Android users (85%)
• Apple users (86%) are more likely to spend the same amount or more on holiday spending this year than Android users (80%)
• Nearly 75% will use mobile devices at some point of the customer journey this season - confirmation once again that customer experiences are becoming ever more digital
• 82% plan to spend the same amount or more on holiday spending as compared to last year, while just 18% plan on scaling back and spending less.
• Over half (54%) of shoppers will shop online and in store.
• Just 24% of consumers continue to shop exclusively on the high street and malls.

Introducing omnichannel
These statistics illustrate the impact of online and mobile on traditional shopping patterns. That you can use Apple Pay to shop in the virtual and real world means the company is likely to grab a few payment transaction fees from a hefty slice of nearly 75% of digitally-savvy US consumers this season.

This nexus of mobile technologies and consumerism should mean new business opportunities for switched-on developers. I imagine soon (if not already) you will be able to stand in a mall, take a photograph of any item, and be presented with price comparison data on the spot.

Apple Pay support in third-party apps should enable developers to put purchasing into the mix, and integration with online shopping services means you will get delivery, too.

Everything everywhere
In the future, consumers will always be able to access the cheapest available deal on any product and have purchases shipped to them just by pointing their smartphone and putting a thumb on the button. There are already services moving to deliver this kind of integration, and their arrival will do very little to support traditional brick-and-mortar retail.

Shops will become showrooms, at least when looking for mass market or commodity items.
Apple Pay is only one element to support a complex tapestry of useful and relevant services – but this season it seems likely to pour a few million dollars into the Apple cash machine.

Sony releases AOSP source code and binaries for select Xperia Z series devices

We recently saw a video of Sony Xperia Z1, Z2, and Z3 running on AOSP build of Android 5.0 Lollipop. Sony has now released the source code and binaries, along with instructions that will let you run it on your Xperia device.

Lollipop for Android Wear will bring many new features, leak shows

Android Wear has gotten an update or two so far since its official unveiling a few months back, but those only brought with them minor new features. That said, it looks like the Lollipop update for Google’s wearable platform will come with many new things, and they’ve all been detailed in a comprehensive leak.

Now that Android 5.0 Lollipop for phones and tablets is ready to start appearing in over-the-air updates near you, we assume Android Wear will be the next focus for Google – namely, getting it updated to Lollipop.

And when that does happen, you’ll see a new Watch Battery section in the Android Wear app for mobile devices. This will act just like the Battery part of the Android Settings menu, showing you graphs and which apps ate the most of your battery capacity. Again similarly to what you can see in Android for phones and tablets, you’ll also get a Storage section, which will detail how much of your watch’s internal memory is occupied and how much is free, as well as which apps take up the most space.

Next up, watch faces will become even more customizable. You’ll change them from the Android Wear companion app, and an official watch face API will surface with the Lollipop release. This will allow for weather notifications to be displayed directly onto the watch face. Further, you’ll be able to recover dismissed cards on your smartwatch with a swipe up.

Theater mode and Sunlight mode will be new to the 5.0 Lollipop release for Android Wear. The former makes the wearable’s screen stay off until you double tap it or press the hardware button – even if you get notifications. It’s obviously meant for use in cinemas, and other such spaces where your watch lighting up all of a sudden would annoy the people around you. Sunlight mode, we assume, will instantly crank your watch’s brightness all the way up, so it becomes visible in broad daylight conditions. Until all smartwatches get ambient light sensors, this will prove to be a very useful feature undoubtedly.

The new version of Android Wear will also bring with it some improvements for the visually impaired, including large text, color inversion, and magnification gestures. Lollipop for Android Wear may become available sometime in early December.
