Rave reviews for Nexus 7 and Chromecast; Moto X to use "Magic Glass"?

  • The new Nexus 7 is quickly creating believers. Reviewers at The Verge, Engadget, and Mashable all like the Google (GOOG) tablet's 1920x1200 display, quad-core CPU, and thin/light form factor. Some complaints are registered about the 7's large bezels and (relative to the iPad) tablet app ecosystem.
  • Chromecast reviews are just as good. The Verge's Nilay Patel (9.0 out of 10) is more impressed with the $35 HDMI stick's tab casting feature, which allows the contents of any browser tab to be streamed, than its Netflix/YouTube support. "Think of it as a wireless display cable for your laptop and you’ll get the potential immediately." Comparing Chromecast to Apple TV, TechCrunch's Greg Kumparak praises the device's cross-platform support.
  • Former Android and Me writer Taylor Wimberly reports the Moto X will use a special kind of Gorilla Glass (GLW), known as Magic Glass, that wraps around a phone's sides.

    Finally, I am surprised it took this long for a phone company to put proper protection around the sides of the phone where it will need the most protection
