Love the Stock Google Android experience that you get from a Nexus 4, but love the design and features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 then you’re in luck.
Google today announced at Google I/O that they will start selling an unlocked Samsung S4 in the Google Play Store with a true Android experience – getting rid of all that bloatware that Samsung adds on.
When the announcement was made at I/O by Hugo Barra the audience went crazy by all accounts until the price was announced. To get the True Android Samsung Galaxy S4 it’s going to set you back a hard hitting $649.
The Stock Android S4 will go on sale on June 26th and work on both AT&T and T-Mobile LTE networks.

If your one of the lucky few that splashed out $1500 on Google Glass then your probably snapping pictures left, right and center and now you want to share them to your social media feeds such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
Thanks to a new App released for the newest tech gadget called Glass to Facebook, users of Google Glass can now happily share their pictures with their nearest and dearest.
The App is a 3rd party App and once you have linked it with your Facebook Account your can share your videos and pictures.
One word of warning though there’s currently a security alert on TesseractMobile’s website (Glass to Facebook Developers) associated with the site’s root certificate – so its down to yo whether you wish to install it or not.

Google has pushed out an update for its Play Store to version 4.0.27 with very minor tweaks. One think it has changed however is its policy on Apps bypassing the Play Store to update themselves.
Google has added a new part to the policy under Dangerous Products that reads
An app downloaded from Google Play may not modify, replace or update its own APK binary code using any method other than Google Play’s update mechanism.
The update will not effect most Apps in the Google Play Store but one that it will have an impact on is Facebook.
Facebook’s latest update for their Android App gave it exactly the ability that Google is now forbidding.
