Brian Tong here and welcome to Googlicious for everything Google that we can pack inside of a show.
Now we talked about how Google Glass appears to be fading last week.
But Intel hopes to reenergize the platform with a new partnership.
Now the Wall Street Journal reports, Intel will equip the next version of Glass in 2015 with a new low-energy processor designed to increase battery life and will replace the current one.
Viatech's instruments that last around a day.
Intel's making a bigger push into wearable technology and it currently produces the super fashionable MICA bracelet that has little mainstream appeal.
Intel's planning to promote grass to industry and businesses such as hospitals networks or manufacturers where.
They believe it can have a stronger lasting impact and use case.
Now Google continues to push Glass as a consumer device but it still faces the challenge of price, privacy issues and let's be honest it still looks awkward in casual settings.
Yes it's still an evolving platform but last week we asked some of you.
To chime in on your experiences with Glass.
Scott Boswell says he loves his Glass for daily lab work, but it's ahead of it's time.
John writes in that one of the big obstacles for Glass, is that Google isn't currently allowing devs to monetize their apps.
And they expect devs to put it on the platform for free.
Not very cool.
And Kimberly Ann Graham, who's an explorer, says, who do you get your information from?
I wear my Glass every single day.
Start to finish.
I'm telling you that you don't know what your talking about.
Or we live in different realities.
Kim, don't get so defensive.
I actually get my information from this amazing resource called, the internet.
And personal experiences.
So, yes, maybe we do live in different realities.
All right, thanks to everyone for writing in.
Let's check this out.
Google Chromebooks continue to make more strides in education, according to IDC.
And for the first time ever, Google has overtaken Apple in United States schools.
Now, in Q3 of 2014, the Goog shipped 750,000 Chrome Books to schools while Apple ships 702,000.
The Financial Time reports that Google Chrome Books as a whole now account for a quarter of the education market thanks to their starting price.
At $1.99, fully functional keyboards no surprise and the ability to manage them more easily by IT peeps.
Alright there's the new report from SamMobile and don't get to surprised by this.
The next Galaxy S flagship phone will be called, and a drum roll please the Galaxy S6.
And a Galaxy S6 Edge will also be coming as well.
Alright it's part of their Project Zero initiative we talked about where their starting from scratch they're reinvigorate their Galaxy line but changing their name won't be part of it and you'll no longer have to part of the cool club to get.
One of the one plus phones titled by them as the Smartphone killer and really one of the hottest Android phones to come out this year.
It's available for everyone.
You can check out the website that will have a special pricing of 16 gig model at 299.
And the final story that could be big but might not mean anything.
I know, don't you love that for a tease?
Tech crunch discovered a newly published pen by Nintendo that shows the company's looking to bring some of it's titles to mobile devices through emulation technology on products ranging from [INAUDIBLE] displays in airplanes and trains and smartphones.
Now I've been saying this forever.
How many people would buy Super Mario Brothers on a platform like 5 to 7 bucks.
So we've see plenty of Nintendo emulators in the past that end up getting shut down.
And Nintendo hasn't made any official announcement, but it's my story of the week that let's be honest, it got me a little giddy.
Alright, that's gonna do it for this week's show.
Thank you all for watching and we'll see you all next time for some more of that Googleicious.
