Brian Tong here.
And welcome to Googlicious.
It's all the Google goodness.
That we can pack inside of a show.
So we start of with the Googs, teaming up with six other companies to invest in a 300 million dollar undersea cable nicknamed faster that aims to boost the speed of web connectivity in Asia.
Now I know this may not be the sexiest headline but the connection will run 60 terabytes of data per second.
That's ten million times faster than the standard cable modem.
So, maybe they could just add an additional connection to my apartment.
Now it will connect major West Coast cities like San Francisco, LA, Seattle and Portland to coastal cities in Japan, Sakura and Chiba.
Other companies teaming up are major Asian wireless and telecom groups like China Mobile International.
Global transit, KDDI and more.
Now construction will begin immediately and it will be ready to use in the second quarter of 2016 with any sea being the main project supplier.
Google has invested in other underwater cable projects in the past and it aligns with their strategy to get internet across the world in create ways like their own project Loon.
With their big idea projects.
All right check this out September looks to be a busy and hectic month in the gadget world.
After Samsung sent out their invitations for a September 3rd event to launch the Galaxy Note 4. But you can guess that you won't need to wait after new images of the new Note 4.
Have been leaked on GSM Arena, featuring the same front.
The plastic back with the leatherlike texture, with the S pen holder, and a heart rate monitor next to the rear camera on the left side.
Now, the next generation Moto G. Which was well received for its sub 200 price tag with flagship phone performance will also reportedly launch on September 10th.
And the new Moto X, referred to as the Moto X plus one, is expected to feature a slightly larger 5.1 inch screen and aluminum trim, with the same customizability with Verizon planning to launch the device.
On September the 25th.
And don't forget there's also that thing called the iPhone, that's expected to be announced on September the 9th.
Now, another gadget that's coming this summer and possibly in September as well.
The Modo 360 smart watch.
Just to keep you interested Italian site gadget.net recently released a boat load of images but the most interesting ones feature the Modo 360 sitting in what's believed to be the charging dock that charges the 360 wirelessly, turns it into something like a bedside clock.
With a blue circle animation that fills up around the edge of the watch as it charges.
All right in a couple of Google stories, heads up Amazon, the G men and G women are partnering with Barnes and Noble to add same day delivery service of books to their Google shopping express service, that's free for the first six months.
It will start this Thursday in Manhattan, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
And Google Fit's preview SDK is now available for developers to start making their magic, after their health tracking platform was announced at Google IO a couple months ago.
Alright let's shift gears, and there's always some amazing crowd-funded projects out there, but this one might be one of the best.
Touted as the world's smartest motorcycle helmet, the Skully AR-1 reached its IndieGoGo goal, and is now on preorder.
The helmet features a 180 degree built in rear camera and GPS turn by turn directions on a transparent heads up display with bluetooth connectivity to your phone.
This is sick.
But then, this guy gets a little too serious.
Our technology fundamentally enhances human capability
Okay, the product is still amazing.
It won't come cheap with a pre-order price of $1,299.
It will be available in May 2015 and I'm not even the target market for this because the only bike I ride still has training wheels, but this is an awesome product that we'll definitely be watching.
Our technology fundamentally enhances human capabilities.
Yes, see, it's still funny every time I hear that line.
Alright that's gonna do it for this week.
