Google's October,29 event that was supposed to start tomorrow has been Cancelled after a state of emergency has been issued in the US due to the imminent arrival of Hurricane Sandy, which will be passing through New York City, Google's venue for the event.

Although Google did not announce the specific purpose of the event, other than calling it an 'Android event', it was generally assumed that the company was going to announce the LG manufactured Nexus 4 smartphone and a 10-inch Samsung manufactured Nexus 10 tablet. Here is Google Official Statement:

We are canceling our Monday morning event in New York due to Hurricane Sandy. We will let you know our plans as soon as we know more. - Google



Google Maps


Google Updated its Maps application again, this time with 25 Million... Yes, 25 Million New building footprints added to the Google Maps. Most of those footprints are for large U.S. cities and metros. Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Houston and the San Francisco Bay Area are some of the areas where the changes will be most obvious.

Google's Q3 results came out earlier than planned and since they didn't meet Wall Street's expectations, the company's shares dipped and trading of the stock had to be suspended temporarily. Google's shares ended the day 8% down.

While not what analysts expected, Google's third quarter wasn't that bad. The search giant had its first $14 billion revenue quarter (a 45% increase year over year), helped by revenue from Motorola Mobility Inc.

Google is always working to make its products better no matter what platform you happen to be using, and one major point in that strategy is to make sure that the web apps for Google products are the best they can be. Today, Google has updated its mobile site to make it easier to get to other Google services.


The new addition to the website is something that will look very familiar to Android and iOS users because it is the same hidden services menu that has become part of many mobile apps like Google+, Facebook, YouTube, and more. Now, if you tap the new menu icon found in the top left hand corner of the page, a hidden menu will slide out with links to all Google services.



Google Play

The Google Play Store has had in-app subscriptions available since May, and the feature really came into fruition in June when the Nexus 7 was released and magazines were added to the store. Now, in-app subscriptions are getting even better with the option to offer free trials.

As of today, developers can now add in the option to offer free trials for its in-app subscriptions. The free trial must be at least 7 days, but over that, it can be as long as the developer wants. The purchase will go through as a transaction for $0.00, and users will get an e-mail detailing the deal. When the trial ends, the full amount of the subscription will automatically be charged, unless the user cancels.

Free Trial Period

For any subscription, you can set up a free trial period that lets users try your subscription content before buying it. The trial period runs for the period of time that you set and then automatically converts to a full subscription managed according to the subscription's billing interval and price.

To take advantage of a free trial, a user must "purchase" the full subscription through the standard In-app Billing flow, providing a valid form of payment to use for billing and completing the normal purchase transaction. However, the user is not charged any money, since the initial period corresponds to the free trial. Instead, Google Play records a transaction of $0.00 and the subscription is marked as purchased for the duration of the trial period or until cancellation. When the transaction is complete, Google Play notifies users by email that they have purchased a subscription that includes a free trial period and that the initial charge was $0.00.
