Google has collaborated with the nonprofit Historypin to create an interactive map containing images and videos highlighting the neighborhoods devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The project is entitled Hurricane Sandy: Record, Remember, Rebuild and has used over 300 contributions thus far.

Google Play Music Update v5.0.1041J Introduces Features That Were Surprisingly Absent

When Google unveiled Google Play Music All Access earlier this month, they introduced the option to supplement our existing music collections with the millions of songs available through their service. What they didn't tell us was that those songs weren't as easy to remove from our libraries as they were to add. Sure, the web interface made doing so simple enough, but that isn't much use when a particularly jarring track makes itself known during the commute to work.

Geneva Model S Wireless Review: This Bluetooth Speaker Is Chic Décor Eyes Will Dig And Ears Will Love

I don't have high expectations when it comes to audio. I want something that sounds good enough not to make my friends cringe and doesn't take half a day for me to figure out how to set up. If the device producing the sound happens to look nice, that's an added perk. When I pulled the Geneva Model S Wireless out of the box and started streaming music from my phone with zero setup time, I was in love.

Download: Latest Google Play Store 4.1.10 With Location Bug Fixes

A new update to the Google Play Store app with version 4.1.10 is rolling out following the big 4.1.6 refresh from two weeks ago, just before I/O. As far as I can tell from a quick teardown and playing around, this is a minor update. All the important changes happened in the previous release, so 4.1.10 is likely a bug fixer. That said, if you see something I missed, please drop a line in the comments.

Google Unveils Brand-New Gmail Inbox Experience, New Android App Coming 'In The Next Few Weeks'

Google has finally unveiled a long-awaited overhaul to its Gmail app for Android, in conjunction with an all-new inbox experience that marks the single biggest revamp of the web mail service in years. We predicted this update would be announced today earlier in the week.

The new Gmail inbox is centered around tabs. Yup, tabs. The idea is that you have up to five sub-inboxes (any of them can be disabled) to organize your email, but that Gmail does the hard work of sorting everything out for you.

We've looked at Moborobo and all it has to offer once before, but the team has been hard at work bringing new features and tools to the already-useful application.

Verizon may not be the fastest carrier when it comes to sending out over-the-air updates, but it looks like it's finally getting around to pushing a fairly sizable 129.1MB update to its version of the Galaxy S III.

Duolingo Releases Android App, Brings Free Language Learning On The Go

I've lived in Texas for upwards of a decade now, and there have been numerous occasions when I've vowed to learn Spanish. I haven't actually followed through with that goal (or even attempted to), but thanks to Duolingo and its new Android app, I think I may finally take the time to learn a second language.

In a nutshell, Duolingo's goal is to offer "a college-quality education without the price tag," which actually sounds pretty good to me.
