Googlicious. Googlicious. What's happening? Brian Song here and welcome to Googlicious for all the Google that we can pack inside of a show. We're still waiting for the official release state for Google's newly released Nexus goodies. But according to bright side of news. The long-rumored HTC built Nexus 9 will be unveiled on October the 15th and will go on sale November the 3rd. Now, it's a convenient time to squeeze in an announcement with Apple's iPad event happening on the 16th. And Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 releasing on the 17th, if true. Now the Wall Street Journal is also piggybacking off of what everyone has been talking about the past few weeks, with the Nexxus 6 Super Tablet coming this month as well. And just a side note, with Google +. And an actual improvement I like is the ability to add interactive polls to your posts now, thanks to the acquisition of Poller, one of my favorite apps. Now you're limited to five choices and it's sleek, but it's kind of a waste that they're limiting this to just Google Plus. All right. iHeartRadio is bringing support to Android ware. With an app of its own on October the 15th supporting all current Android Wear devices, including voice search, favorites, and a thumbs-up and thumbs-down feedback system. This may not be as official, but you can also play Game Boy color games on your Android Wear device too. Check it out, Corbin Davenport shows it off using his Galaxy Gear Live paired with a MOGA controller to run the emulator including games like Tetris and Super Mario Brothers. Little games on your watch. I'm not sure how often you'd actually use this, but I love the work he did to get it done. And let's not leave the Chromecast out of the fun. A new Kickstarter that's only asked. For 1600 bucks is looking to turn the Chromecast into a multi-player games platform. Now their first planned app is called buzzb, and it's a quiz game for the casual user that will incorporate YouTube videos, web images, and SoundCloud audio. And you'll use your phone to interact with it. Now it's our first step but really cool way of adding to the chrome cast eco system. Alright, tons of Android gadgets are dropping in October, Motorola and Verizon finally pushed out their official sneak peak of the Droid turbo and it's 5.2 QEC to be released later this month. Sleak and yes very red. Also, at HTC's recent double exposure event, they revealed the new HTC Desire EYE, that features dual 13 megapixel cameras, one on the front and one on the back, and it's also water-resistant, so really, it's the ultimate selfie cam. Plus, the official unveil of their GoPro like camera called the re, that can capture 60 megapixel still shots, 1080p video, and allows you to stream live from YouTube through your phone. Now it looks a lot like an inhaler but even better, use it in a pool to look like a human submarine. Now both products are expected in time for this holiday season. And we know Lenovo has been working closely with Ashton Kutcher to give his input as one of their products engineers. He has a proven tech savvy background, investing in multiple successful startups. Like Skype, Airbnb and Path and he studied biochemical engineering in college. So, yeah he's pretty legit, now the results of his efforts and the t melanobo [UNKNOWN] has resulted in the Yoga Tablet Two Pro, the successor to one of cnet's versatile tablets. Now this one runs Android 4.4, features a 13-inch QAC display with this neato hanging hinge system, 32 gigs of storage, 15 hours of battery life. And it's the first tablet with a built in pico projector so it's truly one of the innovative tablet entries we've seen to date starting at 499 and available the end of October. And really it's worth checking out. All right. That's gonna do it for this week. You can always email us at googlicious.cnet.com or tweet me @briantong, and I'll respond. When I'm not looking for comics on eBay. All right, thanks so much for watching, and we'll see you all next time for some more of that Googlicious. Googlicious.
