The Solar Impulse HB-SIA that hop-scotched across America earlier this year, finishing its epic, sun-fueled cross-continent journey in early July, has since been broken down, packed into a jumbo jet and returned to Europe. An ocean was too big a hurdle for this plane – but come 2015, things could be different for the Swiss team of adventurers.
Google has confirmed that its next-gen lineup of upcoming Chromebooks will be powered by Intel Haswell processors - boasting extended battery life and improved performance compared to earlier models.
Google is racing to encrypt the torrents of information that flow among its data centers around the world in a bid to thwart snooping by the NSA and the intelligence agencies of foreign governments, company officials said Friday.The move by Google is among the most concrete signs yet that recent revelations about the National Security Agency’s sweeping surveillance efforts have provoked significant backlash within an American technology industry that U.S.
With all of the world focused on Google’s unveiling of Kit Kat and Samsung’s big announcement, Google snuck out another update for the Android Distribution Charts. The biggest addition to this month’s update is actually what it subtracts. Donut and Eclair (versions 1.6 and 2.1 respectively) are no ...
This has been the greatest week ever because we get to write about affairs, and scorned wives, and hottie home wrecker babes. And this story is not going away because apparently lesbians are now involved in a conspiracy that reaches the lowest levels of journalism. I kid you not!
The Internets are burning up because Sergey Brin may be having an affair with a woman who may have been the paramour of the mobile exec, Hugo Barra, who is defecting to Chinese mobile phone upstart Xioamia, leaving Ann Wojcicki, who is the sister of yet another senior Google exec, Susan Wojcicki. Meanwhile Lamar may, or may not, be having drug abuse issues leaving us all wondering whether Khloe is going to put on weight again.
Google released the new Nexus 7 manufactured by Asus last month. We brought you the review of the device recently, and here we managed to compare new and old Nexus 7 tablets in terms of benchmarks . The new Nexus 7 is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core ...
Type in a word and a dictionary definition on top of the search results or adjacent to it. I love this feature because it kills all those spammy dictionary websites like, Mirriam-Webster (that's right you two. I said it. You are spammy).
Why don't we all just give up and let Google do everything for us:
Google, bring me the head of Alfred Garcia
Google, explain women to me
Hey, we aren't the only ones who are surprisde. But, according to the comScore Media Metrix service, Yahoo had 3 million more unique visitors in July than Google. Apparently this vindicates Marissa Mayer, former Googler and presently CEO of Yahoo. And, frankly, it is mystifying. I mean, for the all the crap Yahoo has gotten these last few years and the notion that Mayer was a little bit of a dilettente, you can't argue with the numbers.
The folks over at Engadget noticed that Google has applied for a rather interesting new patent. According to the USPTO application, it is a “location-based security system for portable electronic device.” What this means is an awesome new way to automatically ramp up your phone’s security depending on ...
If Google starts to get really evil its redemption will come from having given us Chromecast. This $11 piece of hardware should, unless the world is insane, kill the attached computing display for ever. Because, we should never have to lug around a laptop, or set up a room with a projector or a TV for meetings, or even have to go through the nightmare that is Hulu Plus on Tivo Premier.
Silicon Valley's sense of giving is disproportionately low compared to its sense of getting. So, you have to take every seemingly earth shattering we-are-the-world announcement with a tablespoon of salt. Lord love them, the billionaire geeks running the world really try to make it a better place without every having had to really live in it, like the rest of us.
We've covered a number of Android-powered PCs-on-sticks here at TG Daily in recent months. However, this is the first time we're talking about a PC-on-a-stick powered by Aliyun OS instead of Google's popular mobile operating system.
Under Larry Page, launching new initiatives is not for the faint of heart. A lively debate among current and former Google engineers is waging on Hacker News about Quartz’s piece on the death of 20% time at Google—that formerly hallowed portion of an engineer’s week ...
Between 23:52 and 23:57 BST on 16th August Google went down. The results put the fear of Google into every webmaster's heart.
GoSqaured, a company that has its own analytics platform, had noted in its Engineering Blog:
The spread of computing to every corner of our physical world doesn’t just mean a proliferation of screens large and small—it also means we’ll soon come to rely on mobile computers with no screens at all. “It’s now so inexpensive to have a powerful computing device in my ...
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! One of the world's richest men, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, doesn't like another one of the world's richest men, Larry Page of Google. Larry Page is acting evil. Something about Java. Meh.
There are surreal moments in life when you realize that people who don't have a billion dollars are going to eventually figure out that people who do have a billion dollars are just whiny, self-absorbed freaks who will never know the joys of the Jack in the Box Waffle Stack.
A recent post on Google's Official Search Blog identifies a new feature that curates content for broad topic searches. It looks like it is anti-TGD and its staff of dedicated transients and former convicts. Shame on Google for neglecting the ramblings of schizophrenic Adderall users at a time when they need page impressions the most.
Google is apparently taking steps to make its flagship Chrome browser more touch friendly.
A two-person team behind a company called Dapper Vision is pioneering an OpenGlass Project that could tweak perceptions about Google Glass. Rather than seeing Google's wearable as a marketing and infotainment luxury item, the hands-free device could become known as an information vehicle for the visually impaired. The ...
