Google’s services are easily accessible from nearly every OS. Because of this, you probably log into Gmail from plenty of devices: phones, laptops, tablets or TVs. Google keeps a log of all that activity including devices used to access Gmail, the IP address, state, and when the access was granted.

Google Maps for iOS 6 Finally Arrives!
There’s also a nice review posted on The Verge. Once an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 is released, I might upgrade my iPhone 4. Until then, I’ll be enjoying Google Maps on one of these Android devices.

The Safari mobile browser for iOS has become a staple in the mobile industry. It raised the bar for mobile browsers and pushed the envelope on the standards that people who’ve owned an iPhone expect from native apps – not to mention the mobile web.

I have to be honest. I haven’t been the biggest fan Google+. I’ve been Circled over 11k times , but I don’t see much activity from users beyond sharing the same things they share on Twitter and Facebook. Most of the people I’ve circled seem to be more active elsewhere. Though Google+ original design was well received, I found the layout too cluttered with text. Overall, Google+ reminded me of a message board stuck with an old school design while flaunting new school features.
So, I’m more than excited about the new redesign for Google+ because it finally feels like it Google+ knows what it wants to be.
