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
