We heard of Google Search, Google Instant Search, Google Image Search, Google Voice Search….. and now Sound Search from Google Android. With this you can search for the songs when you hear it while you are traveling in a bus or at a Multi Brand Store, you can immediately click on the Sound Search widget on the Android Home screen and it will recognize the song for you and provide you with a download link (at times)….
“What’s this song?” Starting today, the Sound Search for Google Play widget is available to download from the Play store, so you can start identifying music playing around you, directly from your Android device’s homescreen.

Google has done the same thing by introducing J2ObjC a tool which converts Java to Object C Language.
We already have many tools which can do the same job, but the special thing about this tool is that it is developed by GOOGLE.
Now Android updates provided by Google Play don’t require users to download the full app again and again, only what’s changed.
Normally, when an update to an application comes out, the Play Store downloads it in full, which with large apps and slow connections can get quite painful (think 50MB+ sizes). Smart app updates, announced at an I/O session in June, was the solution. When enabled, only the incremental difference (a.k.a. the delta) between the old and new apks would be sent over the wire, thereby saving huge amounts of data for both Google and Play Store users.

Rumors of an iPad smaller than Apple’s current 9.7-inch model have long dogged the Cupertino company, but the talk is heating up this year — just as Google tries to go big with its Jelly Bean-based Nexus 7 from Asus.
The new model will have a screen that’s 7 inches to 8 inches diagonally, less than the current 9.7-inch version, said the people, who asked not to be identified because Apple hasn’t made its plans public. The product, which Apple may announce by October, won’t have the high-definition screen featured on the iPad that was released in March, one of the people said.
A smaller, less expensive iPad could undercut the ambitions of Google, Microsoft and Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) to gain traction in the advancing tablet market, said Shaw Wu, an analyst at Sterne Agee & Leach Inc. The new device will probably have a price closer to Google’s Nexus 7 tablet and Amazon’s Kindle Fire, both of which have 7-inch screens and cost $199.
So, We might expect a MINI IPAD soon in the market….
Analyst claims the iPad Mini could land in September, alongside the much-mooted iPhone 5.
