Google Fit lands on Play Store and the web

Google has finally and fully unleashed its own take on the intersection of health and mobile devices. Google Fit, which it announced at I/O 2014 back in June, is finally here and you can access it easily from any Android device via a dedicated app or, alternatively from any Web Browser.

This is the Verizon DROID Turbo, coming 30 October

Verizon and Motorola have finally unveiled the DROID Turbo and it is everything that we have expected it to be, which is both good and bad. Good, because it matches up to the high expectations set up by leaks and rumors. Bad, because there are no pleasant surprises hiding in corners.
