Check out: Hello Nina!

Now for the rest of the goodies that were showered down by Google. This post is slightly late to say the least, however that provided ample time for the information to settle and for me to read what others thought about the announcement. Continuing from the last post we have the Nexus Q which is being marketed as the world’s first social streaming media player.

This device is just downright stunning, from the spherical shape to the striking glow of what I would like to call the malevolent ring. This is the 32 LEDs that ring Nexus Q shifting and changing in color in time to your music. That’s just awesome. Technical specs are as follows; TosLink Optical audio (S/PDIF), 10/100BASE-T Ethernet (RJ45), Micro HDMI (Type D), Micro AB USB and finally Banana jack speaker outputs (whatever these are?). No mention of what is actually inside the device such as processor or storage space, but I guess this will be announced nearer to the actual launch.

The “Nexus Q streams your favorite entertainment directly from the cloud to your living room“ using Google play and Youtube as the primary source of content. This was not meant as a review so I will keep it short and leave you with some fantastic images or head over to Google Nexus for more information.

Finally we have Google Now, the service everyone is calling the Siri rival. However I feel that this product goes beyond Siri, pushing the boundaries of what is possible of technology and privacy to give users a creepy way to search.

“It tells you today’s weather before you start your day, how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform, or your favorite team’s score while they’re playing. And the best part? All of this happens automatically. Cards appear throughout the day at the moment you need them.”
