Wochit 0:59 mins

Starbucks says it's reached a partnership deal with Google that will allow it to offer its customers dramatically faster Wi-Fi service. Dozens of major U.S. companies, including Morgan Stanley, Google, Wal-Mart and Dell, on Tuesday urged lawmakers to pass bills that they said would protect new products against "extortive demands" on patents. Early responses to Google's refreshed Nexus 7 tablet have been very positive, but that apparently might not stop Asus from losing its Nexus contract. According to a research note from plugged-in KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo picked up by 9to5Google, Google will likely dump Asus for its 2014 Nexus 7 model and instead turn to LG to build the device.
