Get Cooler with textbooks on Google Play

Heading to college? Be ready for the standard rites: decorating your dormitory room, selecting your categories and shopping for textbooks. And once it involves shopping for textbooks from the campus store, some things never change like long lines, supplies provides and heavy backpacks. Or do they?
Rolling out in the week, you'll be able to currently rent or purchase digital textbooks from the Books section on Google Play.

Because your library is stored in the cloud which is accessible via the internet, everything in the pocket and ON THE GO. I know how much of pain in the ass can a bag pack be, but not now anymore.

Nexus 5 : Pros and Cons

"As more and more Nexus 5s roll out of the Google warehouses, including one to my house, I've been seeing more and more ''I'll stick with my Nexus 4'' comments and just as many ''should I just stick with my Nexus 4?'' queries on the internet lately. After playing with Google's new flagship I said the first to myself and then increasingly asked myself, before finally deciding to jump aboard the Nexus 5 train as it steams its way into the future. But why did I do it? This comes to a question what's so good and bad about the Nexus 5?

Google Nexus 5

Most of this speaks for itself: the Nexus 5 is going to be getting rapid OS updates for years to come, it packs class-leading specs in a half-price handset like Xperia for instance or even Galaxy S4, and as far as display quality and Android experience go it's hard to beat too. In the $400 smartphone market it's unbeatable, hands down. Sure, other factors might be a little better in some areas, but they cost $100-$400 more. The Nexus 5 is nothing more than a tool: it doesn't look so pretty; well to me, but it doesn't have bells or whistles , but it gets the job done better than most tools that are and do.



Well this one is Easy. The prominent problem with all the android phones is it battery. The battery life is nothing tremendous, the single speaker is pretty bad if you ask me, the camera is nowhere near good enough to compete with the best of the Android camera phone crop, and of course there is no expandable memory. The battery is quite patchy, the OS gets unstable sometimes and it was quite buggy out of the box.

Why I ditched the Nexus 4


An offer came that one would buy my Nexus 4 for almost what I paid for it. So I saw the opportunity to update my current Nexus without losing any money on the previous model. If no one had been willing to buy my Nexus 4, I would be sticking with it, no doubt about it. Sure, I would have probably bought the Nexus 5 eventually at some point, but I wouldn't have been champing at the bit to get one. If you've got a Nexus 4 and you're happy with it: STICK WITH IT AND STAY HAPPY. The Nexus 5 isn't going anywhere. You may well stay happy until the next Nexus comes out.
