Google Is Once Again Cutting Wallet Functionality, Will End Support For Gift And Loyalty Cards On August 21st

Since its inception, things have been tough for Google Wallet. Adoption hasn't been great, many carriers have blocked its use, and the rollout of new features hasn't gone as smoothly as one would hope. In short, it's been a long, hard road for such an initially promising product.

While we've already seen Google cut support for the prepaid Wallet card, the company has now decided to ax NFC redemption of gift and loyalty cards as of August 21st.

Textbooks Now Live In Google Play Books, Still Eats Into Your Beer Money

As promised at Google's recent event, textbooks have arrived in the Play Store. They have been tacked on as a sub-section of Play Books, not a completely new area of the store.

Google Will Soon Highlight In-Depth Articles In Search Results

Google (and perhaps other search engines, but who uses those?) has made finding information easier than ever. Unfortunately, this phrase comes with a wide range of caveats. Finding information that isn't current can be quite a challenge, and the first pages are often flooded with results from sites like Yahoo! Answers, which rank a few rungs higher than Wikipedia on the list of websites not to use as sources on college papers.

Moto X Will Come To Canada As Rogers Exclusive, Available Later This Month

The Moto X will be available from all of the major American carriers later this summer, but it's coming to Canada exclusively through Rogers. While one of the major selling points may be its immense customizability, the Canadian version will only ship in - you guessed it - black or white.

The much-hyped handset is situated firmly at the high-end of the mid-range market, as it comes with a 4.7-inch 720p screen, 2GB of RAM, and Moto's custom processor (1.7GHz dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU).

Google Play TV Shows Now Available In The United Kingdom: UK Residents Can Watch As Much Honey Boo Boo As They Want

Attention, people of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland: you can now buy television shows from Google Play, both on the web and via your Android devices. Google threw the switch on the content earlier today, making the UK the first country to get access to TV shows on Google Play outside the United States. Content appears to be a decent mix of US and UK shows at the moment, though it's probably a bit anemic when compared to the US store due to good old-fashioned licensing issues.
