Google is going portable!

Nexus is Google’s newest hardware that comes in three different sizes. Large, medium and small, you call it! Also known as Jelly Beans these devices run Android 4.2. The Nexus 4 is the latest smartphone, that comes with the Photo Sphere app, which takes 360-degree photos. With this app you can take pictures at another level. After you snap the first shot. The image is recorded in the sphere where you can keep on adding snaps-shots, ending with one photo that includes all the shots. Street View in Google Maps inspired this innovative idea of the Photo Sphere.

New tool for voters!

Elections are over but I am adding the link, so you have an idea of how this tool works.
