NEXT NEXUS 7: Google unveiled a sleeker and more powerful version of its Nexus 7 tablet that runs on the company's Android software. Prices for the improved model start at $229, or $30 higher than the lowest-priced Nexus 7 current on sale.

TV TIME: The Internet company is also taking another stab at making it easier for people to display Internet content on their TVs with a new device called Chromecast that plugs into the HDMI ports of flat-panel TVs. It sells for just $35 and includes three free months of Netflix.

THE TARGET: Both the tablet and streaming stick appear to be primarily aimed at similar products made by Apple Inc.
