At $69, Google’s new Chromecast Ultra costs nearly twice as much as the regular Chromecast, but it’s worth it. You will know whether the Chromecast Ultra is a worthy upgrade when we get it in the lab for testing, but until then here are details for you to understand and compare it. Once you buy it you will get these things in the package:
-Power / Ethernet adapter
-Quick start card
The new ultra model stands beyond the regular Chrome cast. Its power makes it stand out. The main difference is 4k view. I have tried out the Chomecast Ultra and i loved it. Thought i use Apple Tv now but still Chomecast will always be my first choice. So let’s jump into the review.
Ultra high definition (UHD or 4K) video is the main feature that stands out the Chromecast Ultra above the regular Chromecast. Chromecast Ultra can output video streaming is 3,840 by 2,160, while the regular Chromecast is very much limited to 1,920 by 1,080. That’s four times as many pixels and the new standard for the latest original shows on HBO & Netflix. You will be able to enjoy the shows at 4K. And nothing beats the fun of 4k views.
Alongside the just the HD resolution, the Chromecast Ultra also supports high dynamic range (HDR) video. HDR video has more pixels than standard 1080p video, but each pixel cover a wider and more granular range of color and light output. If you have the 4K tv then you will get the real fun.
Now ultra gives you some ultra powers. You can directly put your Ethernet cable into the chrome cast which ensures the fastest internet compared to wifi streaming. Streaming video is pretty reliable over Wi-Fi if you have a good router, but a wired connection ensures, even more, speed and reliability, and that can be the key between whether Netflix actually sends a 4K HDR signal to your television or whether it throttles down to 1080p because it thinks that’s all your network can handle.
Chromecast Ultra is simply faster than the Chromecast, according to Google. It has “ultra fast load times” compared with “fast load times”. Well yeah, it’s true. It’s fast. Check out the video review here below:
If you don’t have a 4K television, the answer is a straight NO. It’s really useless for you then. If you do have a 4K TV, especially one that supports HDR, then go ahead and upgrade now. As the Chromecast Ultra is more powerful and supports better video HD quality, but its bit pricey but it’s worth it.
If there’s one thing Google is good at, it’s the google search. Google Search is the best things you got on the internet and we use it daily. Imagine that search in your hands. Now it’s tailored in Google Home. It has the 20 years of experience that helped it to become the number #1 site we all go to when we want to look up anything on the net. Heck, most people just say “Google it”. That’s not it only, Beyond it’s search we use Google for a lot of things, including getting directions via Google Maps, sending email in Gmail, and watching videos on youtube. In early 2016 Google came up with Google Assistant: a voice-based, conversational way for us to interact with Google’s products and services. Google Home was born. Now it’s on the market available for you to take your home to next level with the techs. You can purchase it for $129.
Google Home review
96.4mm (D), 142.8mm (H); 477g
White finish, interchangeable bases
Touchpanel and voice control
Home is every tech lovers dream now. It’s a short device – about half the size of the Amazon Echo – that complements anything from Ikea. It’s only available in white in the market, also you can customize the colors. Google is selling $20 optional bases that come in a variety of fabric or metal finishes and colors).
All you have to say is ” OK GOOGLE” or Hey Google, these words will activate your Google Home. It just works like “Hey Siri” in iPhone. It has Far-field voice recognition for hands-free use. The other things you’ll notice about the top-half of Home are these two diluted with the far-field microphones, which basically allow Home to pick up your voice commands from across a room. The microphones is really very powerful in Google Home. That’s key for a largely voice-controlled product.
Google Home is actually a pretty capable audio device as well. It’s better than Apple Music & Amazon music store. You can access all sorts of streaming services – Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Pandora & Spotify. It also works as a Wi-Fi speaker thanks to its built-in Google Cast powerful capabilities.
Don’t worry, Chromecast isn’t the only device that Google Home can talk to. There are lots of devices that can hook up with your Google Home right now, or will be able to do so soon. Nest is working on new devices also. It surely beats the Apple Home system. Google Home can connect to right now are Nest thermostats, Philips Hue bulbs and Samsung’s SmartThings and more things are coming soon.
The step up process is very easy and smooth. It’s done within few minutes. Just plug it in, download the Google Home app (formerly Google Cast) and tell the app to search for the new Google Home. You’ll give it a name (i.e.iAppleStuffs Home/ SEO home/ Jhon’s home), configure your Wi-Fi network, connect your Google Account and you are ready to go you go. The app, as well as an insert inside the box, provides a list of some of the things you’re able to accomplish by starting a sentence with “OK, Google.”
Google Home does things better than Amazon Echo. I really liked it. But i think it’s bit price else all the things are perfect.
The Google Pixel phone takes the market share with it’s classy look and unbeatable features. It comes with a higher price tag but the software and support can’t be beaten.
It’s been few months that The Google Pixel and Pixel XL has hit the market globally. Apparently tired of letting third-party Android OEMs serve as the stewards of Android handsets, Google has become a hardware company. Samsungs Galaxy note 7 explosions that shifted the Samsung phones demand in the market which has given Pixel a head start in the market. In this article in review the Google Pixel. So let’s check it out.
We all know that earlier in 2017 Google, launched a hardware division with the former Motorola President Rick Osterloh at the helm. With the high-ranking title of “Senior Vice President,” Osterloh doesn’t oversee a side project & his group is on even footing with YouTube, Android and Ads. The hardware group is so powerful with Google that it was able to merge the popular Google Nexus, Pixel, Chromecast, OnHub, and Google Glass into a single business unit.
The arrival of the Pixel phones signifies the sad death of the Nexus line; According Google says that it has “no plans” for future Nexus devices. So the Pixel is all you will have now. Google pixel is a nice phone. I am using it since last 2 months and I have zero complaints about it.
Google has borrowed Apple’s pricing strategy. Say goodbye to the Nexus’ “value” price tag; the Pixel and Pixel XL are both priced just like iPhones ($649/£599 for the 5-inch device, and $749/£719 for the 5.5-inch device). The Nexus 5X and 6P were both still got decent pieces of hardware, and their $350/£339 and $500/£449 high price tags made it easier to excuse their shortcomings. See the video review here.
The Camera comes first when you talk smartphones these days. It became the most important factory. We all love taking pictures using our phones now. So let’s review the Camera quality first:
I’ll go over the five points that I think clearly define a great mobile camera experience.
Image quality: Excellent
Image stabilization: no OIS for photos, but video stabilization is excellent
Low-light performance: very good
Speed (AF Speed + Camera Speed): very good, although not as fast as Galaxy S7 in AF speed. Lots of software processing post-shooting, but done as a background task.
Camera settings: Excellent, just point, and shoot.
As you can see, it’s fair to say that the Google Pixel competes ferociously with the best out there: the Galaxy S7 Series. In some ways, Pixel is superior (HDR, tone-mapping) and in other ways, the S7 remains ahead (AF speed, less/faster software processing).
Google Pixel gives the best Android experience.
The Google phones always gives you a “pure Android” experience, means that it is the Android interface and features, exactly as Google intended. You get the android just like it was truly meant to be for you. For those not familiar with the term, keep in mind that many other OEMs, especially big brands, will tend to create extra layers on top of Android, to make it their own. But with Pixel you don’t face such things. You get the true android experience.”THE GOOGLE PIXEL DELIVERS THAT ULTRA-SMOOTH EXPERIENCE” for you.
Sometimes the less it is, the better it is. Google has very few “bloatware” that you don’t need in your phone. Which also makes the phone faster. Google has a great ecosystem, an amazingly big user base and therefore doesn’t need to “differentiate” its product by adding bullet-list features and form alliances to preload software. In short, Google does his best to give you a great Android experience.
Google Pixel comes with Snapdragon 821. It’s is a very powerful chip that has excellent performance, especially when it comes to graphics performance. The Google Pixel has 4GB of RAM and has 32GB to 128GB of storage & there is no microSD card option. The system performance is super fast and amazing. checkout the bench marks:
It’s so interesting that nowadays wifi routers are getting smarter and smarter day by day. The router has transformed from a traditional computer hardware with antennas widely sticking out of it to multiple, sleekly beautifully designed pods that are placed throughout your home. Google Wifi is one the best routers of 2017 now that looks sophisticated and works 3x faster than older generation routers. The new method of using more than one device as a wireless hub is known as a mesh system, and it promises to fix all the dead zone problems traditional routers. Now you will get full home coverage with the Google Wifi routers.
Apple routers have this features that it can extend the current wifi network but Google wifi does the job better. Another popular brand Eero is the most well-known mesh router system which quickly hit the market, including efforts from Netgear and other startups. Now Google is moving forward into the mesh router game with the Google Wifi and is faster than all of these routers and with the more advanced feature.
You have to use an App which can be downloaded from Google Play Store and also from the App Store to setup the router and configure it. You will attach the Lan cable inside the main router and power cord as well and rest two routers you can put at any place at your home, they don’t need to connect it to lan cable, it will mesh and get connected to it’s mother router when you step it up. The step is very easy and all instructions are given in the app. It works flawlessly.
Google Wifi is now available for purchase in the Google store. It comes with a price tag of $129 individually or $299 as a three-pack. The price seems high for a wifi router but that’s a lot less than the Eero router which starts at $499 and still cheaper than Netgear’s $399 Orbi, yet gives you more better features at that price.
According to Google, a single unit can cover a 1,500-square-foot home, while a three-pack will span a 4,500-square-foot residence, that’s a lot of space. Additional units can be added for more coverage beyond that. It good enough to cover up a 3rd-floor building also. The network speed 3x faster than any other traditional wifi routers. Google Wifi router has AC1200 2×2 Wave 2 capabilities and supports dual baseband (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11a/b/g/n/ac networking. It is secured with the standard WPA2-PSK protocol. Which is highly secured.
The Google Wifi router is pricey however it’s less expensive than the other branded routers. Apple Airport Express and Extreme is a good eco-system for Apple Users but Google Wifi plays fair in the game and gives you better coverage and more security than another router with a lot of features and it’s beauty. So based on the features it’s worth at the price. I think it’s worth buying.
Google Wifi is the next logical extension of what Google started with OnHub last year back in 2015. It takes the simple setup from the app. And you can fully control it from the App. And if you’re going for a mesh router, Google Wifi is the one think you should pickup.
Let us know in the comment section, is it worth it? Will you buy it or not?
There has been a lot written about Google’s new SearchWiki in relation to SEO. The initial reaction in most of the posts I’ve read is that SearchWiki sucks and it’s going to ruin SEO. Some SEO bloggers have entered into full Chicken Little mode claiming the sky is falling. While the long term effects of SearchWiki can be debated (in fact, you’ll get my take on just that in the next post) I think a lot of people are missing the most immediate implications of Google’s newest “improvement” for their search engine.
By allowing users to edit the results they see in a search engine result page (SERP), Google has effectively given SEOs a proverbial gun to hold up potential clients. While it likely isn’t their intent, the big G has made SEO the most pressing and immediate need of any online business. SEOs, the next time you try to close a potential client, give them a few facts and see how they react.
Now what kind of horrible salesman do you have to be to NOT close the deal when you have those facts staring the prospect in the face. And you know what? Every one of those 4 points is 100% accurate.
SearchWiki is making first impressions more important than ever before. Once a user votes up a competitor’s site, you just lost the #1 spot (and all the traffic that’s associated with it) for that person forever (or until Google decides they’ve made a mistake with SearchWiki but I don’t see that happening any time soon, again more on this in the next post).
While some in the SEO industry are lamenting SearchWiki as the silver bullet that will kill SEO forever, few have realized that it also just provided SEOs with a HUGE weapon to use in a sales pitch to potential clients. So, you can either piss and moan about how Google’s new toy is going to put you out of business in a few years, or you can use what you’re given to close more deals, gain more clients, deliver more value, and create more long lasting business relationships. Are you going to take action or complain?
The choice is yours.
