Google launches mobile service.

Project Fi allows Nexus 6 users to buy calling, text, and data directly from Google, using a combination of two mobile networks in the US (T-Mobile and Sprint), along with Wi-Fi to maintain strong reception.

“We developed new technology that gives you better coverage by intelligently connecting you to the fastest available network at your location whether it’s Wi-Fi or one of our two partner LTE networks,” the company said. Project Fi also supports voice calls and texting over Wi-Fi, lending subscribers more flexibility and how and where they can communicate with their contacts. Google also says it’s using secure tech (there’s a key that shows up in your menu bar) for when you’re using public Wi-Fi hotspots.
Project Fi phone numbers “live in the cloud,” according to Google, enabling you to text and place voice calls from a laptop or tablet without your actual phone nearby. When youare on the phone, Google says calls can seamlessly transition to LTE when you leave a Wi-Fi network.

Easy to use Bluetooth camera controller allows you to snap shots from up to thirty feet away.  Even more, it comes with a small tripod outfitted especially for smartphones to make sure your shots are clean and clear.
