05/02/2013, Yesterday we reported that it was possible that Google Now might be draining the battery of your iOS device.

02/28/2013, If you’ve navigated your way to the majority of Google-owned properties like Gmail, Google Drive or just Google.com, then you’ve probably noticed the black navigation bar that is prominently displayed at the top of the page.

08/10/2012, Apart from the buttery smooth features that come with Android 4.1 a.k.a. Jelly Bean, Android users running ICS or lower are also eager to try out one nifty feature – Google Now.

Google has just announced that it has made […]
01/10/2012, Google certainly is pushing its Google+ social network a lot these days, mostly through the use of its own search engine.
