Google’s aerial ambitions are becoming larger every year and continuing unabated. The last time Google decided to speak publicly about its fleet of internet-beaming Project Loon balloons, they could languidly hang in the atmosphere for about 100 days, but that is up to more than 6 months now.

That’s not a bad stretch considering these things can now deliver LTE data speeds to devices on the ground, but Google’s got these things running even better than before. (more…)

As was rumoured, at this year’s MWC conference in Barcelona, Samsung indeed unveiled two flagship devices.

But Samsung had the other flagship up their sleeves as well, with the launch of the Galaxy S6 Edge.

There is no denying that Google has a lot of money. And when you have a lot of money you can do anything you want with said money.

While Google has invested in everything from robots to wi-fi balloons, the tech giant just dropped another pretty penny on something techy – that being the terribly sought after .app web domain.

The .app domain is was one of the most sought after domains for sale when the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers decided to expand their generic top level domains, i.e the .com’s and the .org’s.

As it is with anything worth millions of dollars, the .app domain was auctioned off to the highest bidder. And Google didn’t flinch to throw around some serious cash.  (more…)

Not to be outdone by many of its rivals at MWC, Microsoft has taken the wraps off of two (essentially the same) smartphones with which it will aim to keep its large market share in the mid-tier smartphone market.
