Some of us would rather be able to get in a car and allow it to take us where we need to go without the hassle of having to actually drive the car. Much like the commute via bus, train, or subway some that have to drive to work would much rather be able to… Continue reading Do you really want to drive?
You’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Google’s Project Ara, but Project Tango is starting to garner some well deserved attention of its own. The smartphone has some impressive hardware unlike anything else on the market, including a Myriad 1 vision processor chip which has the capacity to make one million 3D measurements every… Continue reading Google tangos with NASA
Google’s $400 million acquisition of the UK-based company, called DeepMind, could change the way we look at how humans interact with internet and cloud-connected technologies… forever. DeepMind’s paradigm shifting work, combined with the nearly infinite tech-powerhouse of Google, could introduce a new kind of learning process. Much the same way the human brain is able… Continue reading Inside the DeepMind: What may happen when Google becomes artificially intelligent
It’s often easy to lump in Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Amazon into the same pot. After all, they’re all big tech companies that focus on innovation, bring addictive gadgets, services, or both to consumers, and make tons of money off of our desires for the latest and greatest. They’re all evil to some extent,… Continue reading Apple attacks Google and Facebook. They have a point.
One of the most annoying parts of the Edward Snowden revelations isn’t what everyone is focused on. It isn’t that the NSA has been snooping on anyone and everyone they can. It isn’t that they seem to have their fingers in places that were once considered virtually impossible to hack. It isn’t even the poor… Continue reading Tech giants can’t (or won’t) protect your data when push comes to shove
Google is trying. They’re trying real hard to make their social network better than Facebook. In many ways, it already is, but that has yet to translate into social media world domination yet. Yet. One thing that will possibly help is their automatic movie maker. They take videos and pictures that you’ve accumulated and combines… Continue reading #Video: Google+ automated movie maker looks sort of cool
Could we be getting “NSA fatigue”? No, I’m not talking about the obvious weariness that we have about the National Security Agency’s actions. I’m talking about the news. Has there simply been so much that has come out about their activities over the past few months that blockbuster news doesn’t even grab our attention anymore?… Continue reading Why the NSA tapping of Google and Yahoo clouds is more dangerous than PRISM
The title of the infographic itself is, “A Short History of Internet Milestones”. In reality, we have gone beyond the concept of a “short” history. Things move too quickly in the digital world to count anything measured in decades as short. The graphic itself, created by pkbibi, does a nice job of breaking down everything… Continue reading #Infographic: The history of the internet
If you do a search on Google for “search marketing” and compare it to a search for “social marketing”, you’ll see that there are pretty much no similarities. The two disciplines have been separated for a long time and companies usually focus on one or the other (though it seems like everyone offers a little… Continue reading Search and social will not be separate marketing endeavors in 2014
The secret to Google’s success in recent years is that they’ve been willing to do things that others believe is too big. Quantum computing has been an interesting theory for decades, but it has been considered logistically impossible with today’s technology. That, of course, didn’t stop Google. Is it something that will make “mincemeat of… Continue reading #Video: Google’s (and our) future is in quantum computing
