5 things to expect at Google I/O

"Google I/O is a week away and I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what Google has to announce.

However, the main attraction is Google's keynote address, where executives unveil new projects, products and updates from the company."

Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update Review

"The Nexus 9 is now faster, smooth, more stable, and appears to have better battery life, but not by much. The Nexus 9 is an extremely powerful tablet but the initial Lollipop release wasn’t nearly as smooth as many expected, but now that Google’s refined everything with Android 5.1.1, this device flies. Everything is buttery smooth, fast, fluid, and appears to be running like a well oiled machine.

I’m actually pleasantly surprised by the noticeable increase in performance and general smooth operations. The Nexus 9 still seems to have a little stutter here and there while gaming, which could just be the display, but it is actually noticeably better overall. The update should not only improve the speed and performance, but there should be fewer bugs, and no more app crashes."

Microsoft is rolling out a ton of new features for

"There are a ton of new features. First off, as we reported a few days ago, Microsoft’s Clutter tool that separates your non-essential email from your most important emails will now be enabled by default for all users. As a reminder, you can help train Clutter by manually dragging messages into the Clutter folder.

Outlook will also now be able to throw out search suggestions as you type, allowing you to refine your search based on sender, folder, date and attachments. It’ll also now highlight your search results to make it easier to find key terms. And if you flag emails to read later, you can check them all out through the new Task module in the app launcher

Composing email gets a lot better too. You can now copy and paste images directly into the body of your messages, and links will now show previews with embedded webpages and videos. If you want to work on more than one message at a time, you can pop out messages into new window."
