You think current technology has too many ads, Google has something bigger planned for the future. You may also want to check out the ASUS C200 Chromebook and Galaxy S5 Active while you are at it!
Acquisitions was not the only thing Google had to talk about with the SEC, they also had something to say about their ad business. It turns out Google is planning on serving ads in much more than just computers and smartphones. They may be planning to expand to refrigerators, car dashboards, thermostats and more.
Now we can see why Google is so interesting in piercing these other markets. Though there are many other sources of income for the Search Giant, advertising is their main profit-maker.
Opinion: Ads are everywhere, and there is no way to hide from them. I am not sure I would like to see ads on a car dashboard, though. That may be a bit extreme – not to mention, dangerous.
Want to get a hold of a shiny ASUS C200 Chromebook? You can now pre-order one straight from Amazon. The new laptop is getting ready to hit the streets and Amazon states the item should be released come June 26th.
Specs include the standard 11.6-inch 1366x768p display, a 2.16 GHz Intel Celeron processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage.
Opinion: It may still be a while until June 26th, but this little device may be worth the wait. It’s good-looking, looks well-built and is very affordable. Will you be getting one?
We have heard some rumors of a Samsung Galaxy S5 Active being in the works. It’s been said to be a more resistant version of the Galaxy S5, headed towards multiple American carriers. If you have been waiting to hear more about this phone, today is your day. It has been leaked in full video! No blurry photos or obstacles.
The device has its extra padding, and overall more durable build. The video host doesn’t tell us much else, other than the screen being “more crisp” than the original Galaxy S5. Could that really be the case? We somehow doubt this phone will have anything over 1080p resolution, which is what the Galaxy S5 sports.
Opinion: The smartphone looks very durable and should be a good option for those who follow a very active lifestyle. I just have to wonder how its specs will be. Rugged devices usually suffer in this department.
