Join us in France for the global launch of the Ascend P7

We're live today from the Maison de la Mutualité in Paris, France, with Huawei for the launch of what we expect to be the Ascend P7. As in previous years, Huawei's latest flagship smartphone has been leaked and extensively teased, but not yet made official. Which is what brings us to Paris (and a mighty fine location for a press event it is too.)

We'll be bringing you live coverage from the event floor as and when it happens. Things kick off at 2 p.m. local time which works out to 1 p.m. BST, 8 a.m. EDT and 5 a.m. PDT. You'll find the liveblog after the break!

Pebble 2.0 has been a bit of a work in progress, and today that work continued with updates to its Android and iOS apps — as well as a full firmware update for the smartwatch itself. (And, yes, those of us on Android can now control Pandora via our Pebbles. So there's that, too.) Mostly bugfixes here, but important ones from the looks of it.

Here's the skinny:

Google Maps 8.0

Drastic improvements to navigation and search interface highlight app overhaul

Google today unveiled a pretty great refresh to the Google Maps app today, bringing vast improvements to the navigation experience and usability across the board. For once Google has also included a proper changelog with the update, giving us a peek at what's actually new in this update. Beyond that, though, we've found quite a few new additions to Google Maps that are big time- and frustration-savers.

The changes start with navigation but certainly don't end there — the new version of Google Maps makes it easier to search and find places with new filters, get public transit directions with more accurate times and search abilities, save and manage maps for offline use, and keep up with all of the places you've been and need to review.

This is a big step for Google Maps, and we're going to walk you through all of the big (and small) features of this update.
