Gizmag reviews Google's new take on email, Inbox for Gmail

Google's Inbox is the latest interface for Gmail, both on the web (only through a Chrome browser at the moment) and via mobile apps for iOS and Android.

So far, it appears this could be the timepiece we've been waiting for since, well... since the beginning of time.  Read More

The G Watch atop its charging station, sans USB cord

Gizmag's Eric Mack recently took a long, hot and humid road trip through the American south. It was a trip borne of madness and masochism, but the last week was a little bit easier than the first four. That's the week he was wearing LG's Android Wear-powered G Watch on his wrist.  Read More
