Vizio TV Sets Could Soon Come With Chromecast Built Into It

Right now the Chromecast accessory exists as an external device that users have to plug to their TVs.

Spotify has announced that it’s going to move much of its data from its own servers to Google’s Cloud Platform.

Google Chrome Could Be Getting ‘Morning Read’ Magazine-like Features

If there is one thing refreshing about Google is that its main page is clean and uncluttered and where you only have a search bar. This is versus search engines from back in the day like Yahoo and Lycos where they acted as web portals, and where they tried to load as much information on the front page as possible, like news, sports, the weather, stock information, and etc.
