Google Maps Is Coming To Apple Watch, Adding CarPlay Dashboard Support

Today, Google announced that Google Maps for iOS will be adding both an Apple Watch app and support for CarPlay Dashboard, increasing the likelihood that Apple users will reconsider Google's potential contribution to their walks and rides.

‘Hamilton’ Was a Huge Hit for Disney+ in July, Surprising No One

Hamilton is one of the biggest Broadway shows ever, so it makes sense that it’s also been a big hit on Disney+. The mouse house’s streaming service debuted Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s musical about Alexander Hamilton last month, and according to new data, it was three times bigger than anything streamed on Disney+ competitor Netflix. Variety is reporting that between Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon, Disney+ was the big streaming winner for July. And it’s all thanks to Hamilton. According to 7Par...

The team at DoubleVerify, a company that helps advertisers eliminate fraud and ensure brand safety, said that it’s recently identified a new tactic used by ad fraudsters seeking to make money on internet-connected TVs.

Apple watchOS 7 preview

Of the big three Apple operating systems, watchOS arguably gets the least love. That goes double in a year that sees macOS getting its biggest overhaul in recent memory. On the whole, the Apple Watch’s software is often overlooked, as smartwatch users tend to focus attention on the addition of new hardware sensors and the like. Still, watchOS 7, out today in public beta, brings a number of key additions, as Apple looks to keep from getting too complacent in its spot high atop the list of smar...

The company has launched a petition on to protest Apple's opposition. “It is a very terrifying experience to be legally attacked by one of the largest companies in the world, even when we have clearly done nothing wrong, and we understand why most companies just give in and change their logos.
