Share your voice Tags Google Doodle Google One of Google’s equinox Doodles welcomes the new life that spring portends. Google Even if the weather doesn’t exactly feel like spring, the calendar — and Google’s Doodle — indicate that the changing of the seasons promises to bring warmer weather north of the equator.For those living north of globe’s belly line, Wednesday marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. If you live south of the equator, it marks the first day of fall.It is, of course, the planet’s equinox (not to be confused with the solstice, which couldn’t be more different). The word “equinox” comes from the Latin for “equal” and “night.” Essentially, it’s the biannual event when the sun is directly over the equator.Regardless of which side of the planet you live, Google has got you covered with a Doodle that reflects the mood of the season ahead of you. Those welcoming spring in the north see the sprouting of new life from an anthropomorphic globe, perhaps astonished and optimistic about the warmer days and new life ahead.Meanwhile, those south of the Equator ready for colder, shorter days. Google Meanwhile, those witnessing the end of summer in the south see a Doodle featuring a brightly colored leaf resting on our now-tired globe, seemingly reminded of the fleeting warm days as it girds itself for shorter, colder days ahead.If you aren’t too keen on this situation, remember that you can count on things moving in the opposite direction in six months.

24 Photos 8 Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Tags Share your voice Amazon Fire 7 photos Enlarge ImageThe Fire 7. Sarah Tew/CNET We always thought Amazon’s entry-level tablet, the Fire 7 ($50, £50), was a good value, particularly when it was discounted by $10 or even $15 during flash sales. Now Amazon is updating it with a faster processor and bumping the base storage from 8GB to 16GB. The “all-new” Fire 7 is available for preorder now and will ship June 7.The other addition Amazon is highlighting is support for hands-free Alexa. That means that instead hitting a virtual button on the screen to activate Alexa, you simply say “Alexa” like you would with an Echo device — so long as you’re on Wi-Fi. The feature can be toggled off in the settings menu. It was already added to the Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10.Like other Amazon tablets, the Fire 7 gives you access to the company’s exclusive features, which include Alexa, ASAP, X-Ray, Second Screen, Amazon FreeTime, Family Library, Blue Shade, On Deck and Prime Video downloads. Prime members also have access to millions of movies, TV shows, songs, books, magazines, apps and games with free, unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content.The tablet will be available in 16GB ($50, £50) or 32GB ($70, £60) configurations.Amazon has also announced a new Fire 7 Kids Edition ($100, £100) that comes with 16GB of storage, one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, a “kid-proof” case with a new adjustable stand and a two-year free replacement policy. Like the previous model, the new Fire 7 features a 1.3 GHz processor — but presumably it’s a new processor that indeed is faster. As soon as I get a review sample, I’ll let you know how much of a difference the new processor makes.
