Apple Pay is plodding along rather nicely following its roll-out alongside the iOS 8.1 update late last year, and with Apple Watch about to further broaden the horizons of the contactless payment infrastructure, Google is apparently poised to counter with the second-coming of its seemingly forgotten Wallet. The forthcoming I/O developer gathering, which has already been confirmed with the Big G taking registrations from the middle of next month, will play host to this revival of Google Wallet, and with Apple Pay gaining quite a bit of traction, the Android maker knows that it’ll need to move quickly in order to keep up.

If you can remember some of those ancient products that entertained us long before the age of the smartphone, you’ll no doubt recall the View-Master.

Times have changed dramatically in the last couple of years, though, with a number of companies dabbling in the field of head-mounted tech, and after carrying the flag for so long with Glass, Google will team up with Mattel while using its innovative Cardboard VR tech to re-create a modern-day View-Master.

In an effort to expand its dominance in the desktop Web browser market, Google is experimenting with a number of under-the-hood changes that dramatically improve the zooming experience currently offered in its Chrome browser. The current publicly available build of Google Chrome for Mac already offers a less than polished pinch-to-zoom type functionality, which ultimately gets the necessary job done but suffers from the fact that it only allows noticeably jerky 10% incremental zooms.

One of the most enticing aspects of the Chromecast, besides the fact that it integrates with mobile devices and brought on-demand streaming services like Netflix to non-smart TV sets, is the price. At $35, it has been something of a revelation, but as if that price point wasn’t reasonable enough, the Big G is now throwing in a digital gift to the value of six bucks to its highly valued army of Chromecast users. Check below for details on how you can claim yours!

But while everything seems to be plodding along relatively smoothly just now, a new report suggests that the dark, shadowy and imposing figure of Google may be lurking in the background, and despite the Big G having pumped major investment into Uber over the past 18 months or so, could now be looking to build a directly-competing service.
