Hangout-Updates_6 (1)

Are you one of those annoying people who types loudly even when you’re on a conference call? Well, thanks to a new Google Hangouts update, your colleagues won’t hate you quite so much anymore. The popular messaging platform now blocks out the sound of clacking keyboards during calls to save everybody’s sanity.

Schmidt insists Apple and Google are very good friends.

Schmidt claims the iOS vs. Android conflict is as fierce as ever.

Google chairman Eric Schmidt claims that Samsung had the iPhone 6’s technology one year ago, in a new interview for Bloomberg TV.

Sitting down with Google’s former Senior Vice President Jonathan Rosenberg to promote their new book How Google Works, Schmidt fended questions about the Android vs. iOS competition from “Market Makers” hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Erik Schatzker.

At one point in the interview, Ruhle asks Schmidt how he feels seeing people lined up around the block to pick up the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which sold a massive 10 million+ units in their first weekend on sale.

“Even though way more people carry Android phones how does Apple have that desire factor?” Ruhle says.

“I’ll tell you what I think,” Schmidt answers. “Samsung had these products a year ago.”

The first batch of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus have already made their hands to millions of consumers in the United States and other major markets of the world. There is no denying the fact that many among them will be long time Android users who have been patiently waiting for Apple to make the shift to a larger screen.

With Goat Simulator now available on Android and iOS, that’s exactly what you can be — while at work, in the library, at a coffee shop, or just at home.
