For folks who like to stay on the cutting edge of technology (which I assume includes you, since you're reading an Android blog), thermostats and smoke alarms don't get much cooler than the Nest and Nest Protect. They're Internet-connected, which is great because reasons.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Will Come Exclusively To AT&T On Sept. 26th For $612.99, $199.99 With Two-Year Contract

Google Classroom Opens Up To All Google Apps For Education Users In 42 Languages

Back in May, Google announced "a new classroom," powered by Google's own tools. Appropriately, the effort was dubbed Google Classroom and previewed to educators around the world.
