there is rumored to be 2 iPhone 6. One being 4.7 inches and the other being 5.5 inches. Both where most likely coming in September because that is usually when a new iPhone is announced. Credible sources say that maybe only the 4.7 inch phone will be announced. They say the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 is not ready due to problems with the in-cell touch panel and the sapphire display not being sturdy enough. Now this is all rumors but very possibly true. For more iPhone 6 rumors scroll down. We will keep you update on all the iPhone 6 news and rumors as they come in.

Right now if you buy an Xbox one from dell’s website you will get a full year of Xbox Live gold and a 100$ dell gift card. Yes it is a physical card that will be shipped to you in 10-20 days after the purchase of the console and the card is valid for 90 days. I think this will drive Xbox one sales through the roof. I mean seriously you can get lots of cool stuff with the dell card and now you don’t have to worry about buying Xbox Live gold for a year. The price is amazing to. You can get the kinect-less Xbox One for 440$ that’s 20% off the original price for the Xbox One kinect less console so go get this while you can,

when you factory reset your phone you expect all of your personal information to be deleted. Well according to reports by Avast they went to eBay and bought 20 Android smartphones that were said to be  factory reset. And they were able to find 40,000 pics, 1,000 Google searches 750 emails and text messages and 250 contact names and emails. Now I find this very interesting because factory resetting your phone is meant for deleting all of your personal information so the next owner will not be able to know anything about you. Most people would not try to restore any previous information that was on the device but many people will find this uncomfortable. I always make sure before I sell any device that has ever had any personal information on it there is nothing they can restore. I think that you should too.

The Chromecast is a device that plugs in the HDMI port on the back of your TV and allows you to stream whats on your tablet,Phone or PC directly to you TV. I love the Chromecast and it’s only 35$. Anyway Wednesday was Google I/O (a yearly conference like WWDC but Google not Apple) They announced multiple things you can read about it in the post below. The Chromecast news sparked my attention though. You can now stream stuff without a WiFi password how you ask? Well its actually quite complicated and cool it seems like Magic. It works with ultrasonic soundwaves people can’t hear them. Once you set up your Chromecast to connect to nearby devices the Chromecast will push a ultrasonic sound through your TV speakers. The soundwave is all your device needs to know to pair you up. You can’t hear this but your device can. Google has actually been working on this for quite some time. 

Well today was Google’s yearly input output conference very similar to Apples WWDC basically the same just Google. Now we will start with Android auto. This is cool you can connect your phone with your car and listen to music Google search and use maps of course this is all voice activated and it better be good because of course your not going to be doing all this stuff with your hands because that would be a distraction to the road. I do think the voice recognition is good because its the familiar Google now that we all use on our Android phones so we will be able to see this and late this year.

Android L

The L in Android L is most likely lolly pop but has not been confirmed yet. They said it would have better battery life and a new look that will be used across many Google platforms. We still don’t know much about it but will be released later this year though developers will be able to get it this week.

Android one

Android one is a reference program that gives equipment makers a platform in which they can make inexpensive hardware.

Android TV

Google is doing more than chrome cast. Android TV can be embedded  directly in TV sets or in a box. Google already has people working on this and should be out in 2015. Google’s chrome cast is improving too. Funny because recently sales went up and before they were going to ditch the chrome cast and now they are improving it how u ask. Chrome cast now allows you to purchase content from the Google play store with out a smartphone tablet or PC around. Third party apps are being accepted and you can use controllers for gaming. Nice right I highly recommend the chrome cast I love it.

Android Wear

Here is what we all have been waiting for and it will launch Thursday. Developers can make apps for LG G watch and the Samsung Gear Live which both were announced today. Some apps will go as far as ordering a pizza or more its really cool. Most people like the Android where for Notification’s and so do I. The Motto 360 was talked about and coming this Later this summer and yes people were disappointed about this. The two Smartwatches can be ordered in the Google play store Wednesday.

Wrapping it up

There were a few other announcements but nothing major so that is pretty much it for Google I/O. Many were disappointed that their was no phone or tablet announcements but i’m sure their will be soon.

 

 

Reports say Nba Lakers player Kobe Bryant was seen at Apples headquarters. Reports also say some other athletes were their too. Why well its said they are testing Apples highly rumored iWatch. The main reason is that the iWatch is apparently as you might already know have health tracking and more we did a few post on the iWatch earlier if your interested in it. The iWatch is said to be released this fall. Some reports also say that Kobe Bryant would be the perfect brand ambassador. And just a reminder Google I/O is tomorrow.
