Google’s bread and butter is search and advertising. While that will likely not change for some time, Google seems to be looking for ways to converge some of its services into a kind of super offering.

I’ve previously looked at a Samsung Chromebook ($250 at the time), but the Pixel appears to be an odd bird. At a hefty price for what amounts to a general web browser, can this device work?
Recently, Google has announced that Google Sync about to hit the end of life. In anticipation of this change, I’ll switch an iPhone from Google Sync to Google’s preferred methods.
Downloaded 10 million times within 2 days of release, it’s quite easy to say Google’s new Maps on iOS is popular.
