Sales of Google's Android Devices to Top One Billion in 2014

TheStreet (Jan. 7, 2014) — Research firm Gartner predicts that sales of devices running Google's Android operating system will hit 1.1 billion in 2014. That would mark the first time shipments of Android devices exceeded one billion and would also represent a nearly 26% increase from last year. Gartner expects Android to remain the most popular operating system thanks to the success of low-cost smartphones on the market, but shipments of Apple devices are expected to increase by the most, while shipments of Microsoft Windows devices will also be on the rise.

Google Details New Android Wear Smartwatches at Its I/O Conference

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — Google detailed its smartwatch operating system Android Wear at its I/O annual developer conference in San Francisco on Wednesday. The company said users' smartwatches running on Android Wear will operate as an extension of their phones. Users will be able to download apps directly to their phones in order to get them on their watches. Notifications on a user's watch can be dismissed by swiping the screen, which will also cause the notification to disappear from the user's phone. Google said the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are available to order in the U.S. now. The Motorola Moto 360 will be available later this summer. Video provided by TheStreet

Why Google-Owned YouTube Wants to Buy Gaming Video Site Twitch

TheStreet (May 19, 2014) — Google-owned YouTube is reportedly in talks to buy Twitch for as much as $1 billion, nearly as much as the $1.65 billion deal for YouTube itself in 2006. Here's why the largest internet name in the world would want a relatively obscure startup. First, Twitch is the leading online platform for gamers to stream and broadcast videogame play. The site boasts 45 million unique monthly users, one million of those who actively create and upload their own content. Second, Twitch is the fourth-largest source of broadband traffic in primetime hours, even beating out Facebook and Hulu. Finally, Twitch users' levels of engagement are higher than those who use YouTube. Video provided by TheStreet
