Google is bringing Security Keys to Google Drive for Work users

For folks who are looking for a more intense security platform for their Google accounts (even more so than 2-factor authentication), Google has created a way to help keep your personal information away from thieves. It’s called Security Key, and it’s basically a physical USB key that instantly verifies your credentials without the need to input a passcode on your account.

We first heard about Google’s Security Key initiative back in October, and it looks like product will begin rolling out to more users over the next few weeks. Google has just announced that Google Drive for Work administrators will be able to deploy, monitor and manage the Security [...]

Google Nexus 9 vs Apple iPad Mini 3

We’ve spent some time recently looking at the Nexus 7, Nexus 9, iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3. As we’ve been putting these tablets side-by-side to help you determine which is best for your computing needs, it is time we pit the 8-inch iPad Mini 3 against Google’s 9-inch Nexus 9.

Apple iPad Mini 3 vs Google Nexus 7 (2013): pocket-sized tablet shootout

There is a certain amount of mobility lost in attempting to carry around many of today’s best tablets. Whether out of the Android or iOS camp, a 10-inch or larger mobile device is just not very, well, mobile. To overcome this, smaller tablets have been produced, and it is these tablets that have our attention today, once again pitting Apple against Google as we compare their borderline pocket-sized tablets.

Here, is your Apple iPad Mini 3 vs the Google Nexus 7 (2013) comprehensive shootout.

Size

First, the pocket test. While you might consider me to be a big guy, with big pants, I find that both the iPad Mini 3 and the Nexus 7 fit comfortably in [...]

Some users reporting Nexus 7 brick issue on Android 5.0+ Lollipop

Can you think of anything worse than bricking your phone when flashing a new ROM? Well, how about your Android device turning into a fancy paperweight when the official OTA update is installing? That’s right, a good bunch of Nexus 7 owners, both 2012 and 2013, are reporting that Android 5.0+ Lollipop is bricking their tablets.

Making matters even worse, users so far are feeling that Google and ASUS both are trying to wash their hands of the problem, leaving users in the lurch. Even users with warranty are feeling the pinch. Hopefully this is just a growing pain or misunderstanding, but these users are pretty vocal, just check out the hashtag #Nexus7bricked for [...]

Google unveils four new budget-friendly Chromebooks for under $250

Alongside the announcement of its Chrome OS-powered Chromebit, Google has announced four new Chromebooks aimed at folks who are on a budget. To start off the list, the Haier Chromebook 11 and the Hisense Chromebook are the cheapest of the four, available now for pre-order for just $149.
