Google could be taking over yet another part of the internet very soon. Meanwhile, the Moto X+1 gets a new leak and Sony’s affordable smartphone reaches the USA.
Interested in starting your own site? One of the first steps to take is purchasing your domain name, which gives you ownership over a certain URL. As king of the internet, it only seems natural that Google would sell these, but we usually go to other sites to purchase these – godaddy.com and register.com being among the most popular.
Google is dipping its toes into this market by testing Google Domains, which may very well be the next #1 domain-selling website. Google is known for offering great deals with their services, and this will not be the exception.
The Search Giant is promising no extra charges for hiding your personal information. Users will also be able to create up to 100 email aliases and easily re-direct websites. They will also have partnerships with Shopify, Squarespace, Weebly and Wix, which can help you get your site up after you get your domain.
Opinion: Starting a site can be a bit of a hassle when you have to go from service to service to get things set up. Goole integrating such services sounds like a great idea. Do you think sites like GoDaddy will suffer from this?
We are finally getting a clear photo of the Moto X+a. Only problem is it shows up with a case, which covers most of the device. Leaks extraordinaire @evleaks is the source of the image, but no other details were given.
Opinion: It should only be a matter of time before the Moto X+1 announcement shows up. We can see it will likely follow Motorola’s usual design language. The phone looks very similar to the Moto X, Moto G and Moto E.
Sony’s affordable Xperia M2 is one of the best mid-range devices we have seen around. It is very resistant and offers good aesthetic value, but don’t expect the device to be a beast at a $289.99 price point.
Specs include a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a 4.8-inch 960x540p display, an 8 MP camera and a 2300 mAh battery. The phone can now be had directly from Sony’s website, off-contract and unlocked.
Opinion: You could probably do better than the Xperia M2 for almost $300. The Nexus 5 and OnePlus One are priced similarly, yet they offer amazing specs and performance. Sony’s device does have its benefits, though.
