Today Palm announced that a partnership with Garmin has produced a new Palm GPS Navigator with Garmin Mobile XT software. Users of Palm smartphones like the Treo and Centro can now enjoy access to over 6 million points of interest and turn-by-turn voice prompted directions, as well as free access to Garmin Online for info like traffic updates, fuel and hotel prices, and weather forecasts (that's right...free). At this point, the TomTom version is still available from Palm, but that will most likely change when the Garmin version hits this November for $US249. [Press Release]

The Chromecast - that's a dongle for getting movies and shows and maybe a bit of music up on your big screen, right? Well, yes, but there's much more you can do with your Chromecast. All kinds of apps and games can benefit from the extra screen space - not just Plex and Netflix.
People love Google. It's so useful! You can just type a few words into the search engine and then find a load of relevant websites - all for free. It isn't exactly free, of course. Google, like Facebook, offers free online services in exchange for the privilege to serve its users targeted ads. So, unless you're using some anonymity tool or tweaking your settings, Google logs the data from every search you make and links it to you. The company is perhaps a few keystrokes away from a privacy scandal of its own. Why aren't we freaking out about this?
