This particular HAL is linked to cellular connectivity, which means we can likely expect to see some new radio features in the Google Pixel 3.

The data center is being built on 350 acres of land off County Road 96 in Bridgeport, set on the site of the defunct TVA Widows Creek coal-fired power station.

Google recently added a new category to its Developer Policy Center detailing another unacceptable genre: apps that are "Enabling dishonest behavior".

Google also said its Jackson County data center will feature state-of-the-art energy efficiency. In addition, both state and local officials worked very hard to forge a partnership with the company and advance the data center project. We need to put trailer parks put up for the construction workers like that. That happened Monday when the company surprised the Jackson County school system with $100,000, which will go toward growth and development of the areas STEM programs.

This morning, Google employee Lawrence (from Android Auto team) broke the good news to those complaining for about past eight months, saying the fix will be incorporated in the next Google Play Services release scheduled in June, 2018.

Google has once again revised the list of apps that aren't allowed in its app store, this time adding ones that enable users to generate fake identification. The company was one of the first to begin buying renewables on a large scale in 2010 and achieved 100 percent renewable energy for its operations in 2017. Google's data centers are 50 percent more energy efficient than the industry standard. "Having Google in our community will bring us great jobs and offer real opportunities for our young people. They're using local contractors, local vendors, and it's going to be a big boom for this community", said Jackson County EDA President Shelia Shepard.

"No doubt about it - this a game-changer for us".
