  1. Why Google is in hot water (again)

    Why Google is in hot water (again)
  2. 0:17 / 01:49 Facebook already tailors its feed of news, sports scores and viral videos to show you what you want. Now Google is going to do it too. In a classic case of Silicon Valley "Anything you can do I can do better," the search giant on Wednesday updated its free Google app for iPhones and Android phones with a feed that uses artificial intelligence to show you things like news stories or movie trailers. Google is expanding the features in its search app's news feed. The feed itself isn't new -- Google introduced a basic version of it in December that shows you content you might be interested in, based on your Google searches. But on Wednesday, Google expanded the feed to include "follow" buttons so you can keep tabs on different public figures, like President Donald Trump, artists like Kendrick Lamar, or TV shows like "Game of Thrones."

  3. Google will stop its long-standing practice of scanning the contents of individual Gmail users for advertising purposes, the company announced in a blog post today. The practice, something Google has done nearly since the launch of its email service, allows the company to digest the contents of email messages and use them to deliver targeted ads within Gmail itself. Google is trying to convince more businesses to use its cloud services Users are allowed to opt out, and Google also reserves the practice only for personal Gmail users and not those of corporate accounts. However, the practice has made it difficult for Google to find and retain corporate clients for its cloud services business, according to Diane Greene, Google’s cloud division head, who spoke with the Financial Times. This is due to general confusion over Google’s business tactics and an overall apprehension to trust the company with sensitive data, the report says. “G Suite’s Gmail is already not used as input for ads personalization, and Google has decided to follow suit later this year in our free consumer Gmail service,” Green wrote in today’s blog post. “Consumer Gmail content will not be used or scanned for any ads personalization after this change. This decision brings Gmail ads in line with how we personalize ads for other Google products.” Read more:

  4. A handful of apps are no longer supported on the Apple Watch, according to a report by Apple Insider. Major apps like Google Maps, Amazon, and eBay appear to have quietly abandoned the Apple Watch App Store, without giving a heads-up or providing any explanation to users. AI reports that Google pulled support for its Maps app on watchOS a few weeks ago, while recent updates to the Amazon and eBay apps no longer reference support for the Apple Watch. Other affected apps include Target (the main one, not its coupon app Cartwheel) and TripAdvisor. A TripAdvisor thread dating back to February questioned the changes, but users said they emailed technical support and received no response. Continue reading

  8. We are all screwed. ;-) Can anyone say SKYNET?
  9. BY VICTORIA HO1 DAY AGO For over two years, Google has been sending people into further flung places to capture as much of the earth as it can for its Street View service. Not everywhere can be captured by car, so intrepid trekkers are sent out on foot with a special backpack with a 360-degree camera. In Thailand, the fruit of that labour has largely been thanks to work of one guy, Google tells Mashable. In order to capture these places, a Thai triathlete named Panupong Luangsa-ard strapped on the backpack and trudged through rolling hills and forests. "While collecting just the tea plantations and strawberry fields, he burned through four pairs of shoes," a Google rep said. Panupong travelled an estimated 500,000 km using a mix of transportation methods, and walked about 500 km of it. The entire quest to capture these sites took the team two years, with breaks on rainy days because the camera needs fair skies to get a clear shot. The Trekker backpack weighs about 18 kg, and extends about 2 ft above the operator's shoulders. Its battery lasts around six to eight hours on a full charge. In addition to the new sites in Thailand, Google's Street View has already been extended to exotic locations like coral reefs in Indonesia, Dubai's Burj Khalifa and the pyramids in Egypt, to name just a few. CORRECTION: March 31, 2016, 9:46 a.m. SGT An earlier headline noted that Panupong walked the entire way. Google has reached out with an apology for the error, saying it calculated the distance walked wrongly. Source:
