Google Nexus 10 Tablet Spotted at Walmart Ahead of Release

The customer has taken a picture of the 32GB model resting on a shelf with a $499 price tag underneath the item. Apparently, the person who took the picture did not buy it, but instead took a photo and left the store. So far there have been no other reports about possible early releases like this one, so there’s probably quite a small quantity of Nexus 10 tablets in public reach at this point.

While the LG Nexus 4 might be lacking 4G LTE, it is jam-packed with extremely powerful graphics and processing power. In fact, there is so much great hardware in here, it seems impossible that Google Play is able to sell the Nexus 4 for only $299. That’s because they are actually not making a dime directly on the hardware, it seems.

Blurry pictures of Google Maps for iOS Alpha leaked?

Why did Apple jump ship to their own app platform? The biggest reason had to do with the fact that Google Maps for iOS was massively inferior to the Android version. Google didn’t offer turn-by-turn directions or any of the features needed to really make it stand out. That being said, Apple’s rush to get their own map program into the hands of iOS users hasn’t exactly turned out great.

Google Street View Adds 250,000 Miles of Road

Google Street View is certainly a cool idea. Not only can you get direct street views of many of the places that you are visiting, it is also fun from looking up old areas you used to live in or visit frequently. Just for fun, I’ve used it before to see places like the old family home I grew up in. With that in mind, Google has now unveiled a new update that makes their service even better.

Apple’s maps are awesome, so much better than Google Maps. No? Well at least they are pretty. Alright, harsh sarcasm aside- Apple’s maps leave a lot to be desired at the moment.
