  1. Gmail goes HTTPS-only, inside and out! - Graham Cluley This is great news! Must read. HTTPS is always on and can't be turned off now. That's great but that's not the best part. Interesting graphic too...
  2. Google Buys Nest for $3.2 Billion ... Why Google Just Bought Nest, the "Smart Thermostat" Company - Slate
  3. I have been very happy with Google Sync for the most part. I only use it for bookmarks and extensions, but I have used it across OS and devices with great success. But it is a good thing that I keep a back up of my Bookmarks file, the bookmarks.bak and do an export of the Bookmarks to an html file. I was clearing cache set individually in Google Chrome on my iPhone and accidentally clicked delete Bookmarks. Of course the NO Bookmarks was synced across all my devices giving me NO bookmarks anywhere. Sadly Google Chrome has no versioning available for bookmarks in case of accidental
  4. http://techcrunch.co...e-and-chromeos/ Basically, Google is forking WebKit to create its own rendering engine, called Blink. WebKit is itself a fork of KHTML. Opera, which just recently announced it is switching its browser to WebKit, has announced that they will use Blink. Blink will probably be used soon, but at first it will be pretty similar to WebKit. Expect the two to diverge fairly quickly though. One interesting point is that Google was doing a lot of the dev work on WebKit, so where does this leave someone like Apple? Another nice thing is that they've committed to not

    Internet Explorer and Google Sidewiki

    I happened to be in MS Win XP tonight (playing a game) and I needed to check something online. I fired up IE and went to the site. When I RIGHT clicked on something on the site, I noticed something in the Context menu called Google Sidewiki. It seems to do nothting when clicked, though. A brief search shows that it is some sort of browser extension from Google that was discontinued last year. My question is this: how did I get it on my IE and how do I get rid of it? Thanks, ~Eric
  6. http://chrome.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-new-acer-chromebook.html I'm intrigued. Acer is a company I've had good experiences with and Google, well, it's Google. And a $199 price point for a brand new laptop is going to be hard for everyone else to compete with. So what'cha think? Would you buy one, or save your money for that Nexus 10?
  7. Let me say this right at the start. This is a purely personal evaluation of the merits of the Apple and Android technosystems, what they offer and how they meet my needs. I'm not attempting to fan the flames of the larger Apple/Android conflict among users. Each environment has its advantages and disadvantages. I believe the only meaningful method for determining which is best for us is to examine our particular needs and experiment to find out which system provides us the best user experience. My time online is pretty evenly split between content creation and consumption. While
  8. For those of you that missed it in the Computerworld news, Google has posted a gallery of arty photos of it's data centre hardware and locations. Not to be missed, and plan to spend quite a few minutes as there are many photos. I am in awe of the scale of it all.
  9. https://www.google.com/experimental/gmailfieldtrial Currently a "field trial" that you opt-in to, this lets you see Gmail matches to your (personal) searches. Looks pretty cool.

  12. By Caroline Winter on May 16, 2012 Google+ is a lonely place. At least according to a new study that paints the social networking site as a virtual tumbleweed town. Using information culled from the public timelines of 40,000 randomly selected members, data analysis firm RJMetrics found that the Google+ population, which currently numbers 170 million, is largely disengaged, with user activity rapidly decaying—at least when it comes to public posts.

  13. Google, the international search/advertising behemoth, has had a web browser product since late 2008. It has since grown to one of the most popular browsers used on the web. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (support for the latter two was added in 2010). It is based on the open source browser Chromium (it's a sort-of special relationship, as Chromium exists because Google released the Chrome source code) and the two are almost identical (I don't actually know the differences between the products, besides Chromium missing official Google branding @frapper provided a link that shows the di
  14. Google search practices draw scrutiny of European antitrust officials By Cecilia Kang and Jia Lynn Yang, European antitrust officials announced Monday they have found four areas of concern in an investigation over Google’s search practices, saying the search giant had “a matter of weeks” to volunteer remedies. The findings mean that the clock effectively starts ticking for Google to come up with solutions to the antitrust regulators’ concerns — or else face formal charges that could result in a hefty fine.

    Google Drive

    http://googleblog.bl...yes-really.html Dropbox's prices are 50gb for $9.99/mo and 100gb for $19.99/mo. Google Drive prices demolish those. Plus you get extra gmail space too (although I've had mine since June of 2004 and am using 12% of my space) I've signed up, but haven't yet had mine activated.
