The Web’s explosive growth and competition between browser makers drove Web standards bodies such as W3C to ignore a component-based service-oriented architecture (SOA) model. Polymer aims to reverse this trend by allowing Web developers to build functional and design elements that fit a familiar SOA-like architecture in which components called elements provide services to other components through clearly defined interfaces.
Google’s Polymer 1.0 library promises to tame Web development awash in HTML soup, and make it easier for developers to create feature-laden apps and websites.

Google will celebrate independent software developers that build software with its products and services with two days of tech talks from the company's top technologists at the upcoming Google I/O conference. It's the one conference where developers get better seats at the keynote talks than the press. Google will surprise, delight, and throw a couple of haymakers at its competition.
Google's annual developer conference, I/O will have a few surprises, many product enhancements, and possible haymakers thrown at its competitors.

With its recently announced acquisition of AOL, Verizon now stands with the television disruptors attacking this $400 billion market in opposition to incumbent television networks and entrenched ratings service Nielsen. Telecom giant Verizon's move signals an uptick in the rate of television disintermediation.
Faced with the FCC regulating its networks like a utility, Verizon steps up to monetize video and television.

There is absolutely no doubt that smartwatch sales are growing. BGR has published NextMarket Insights' estimates at 373 million units by the year 2020. Lest we forget, the iWatch will soon be upon us. What seems to be missing from this space is a breadth of input options. Sure, smartwatches will allow us to stay up to date, track our physical activity levels and heart rates. Overall, these devices are really more for your viewing pleasure rather ...

Android Auto, a product that up until now was only talked about by industry insiders and journalists, just shipped this week.

Well, it didn't really ship, because it is being released as a software update to the 2015 Hyundai Sonata that existing owners can download. It will also be factory-installed on new models. Android Auto is an attempt to incorporate the convenience and safety of pairing a smartphone to a car without the distraction. It also points out that the car has become a software-driven mobile device, not unlike computers and smartphones.
Looking more like a computer company than a car company, Hyundai ships Android Auto on 2015 Sonatas and unlocks it for owners of the 2015 Sonata with a software update. Apple Car Play integration is still to come.
