Google has just updated its Google Search Android app, which now includes a home screen widget for the Google Now service.

The home screen widget will automatically display local weather information, calendar appointments and any other relevant Google Now information. For users with Nexus devices, like the Galaxy Nexus and the latest Nexus 4, the Google Now widget can also be added as a lock screen widget.

The existence of a Google Now widget was leaked on the official Nexus support pages earlier this week. In addition to this feature, the Google Now function itself has been updated to show movie ratings from Rotten Tomatoes.

The Google Now widget can be added by updating the Google Search Android app through the Play Store.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
