Google’s New Light O/S Works for all Future Devices

GoogleGoogle has recently announced plans of developing a new operating system called Brillo that would be lightweight and suited for all devices where a computational memory and application is required. Be it internet connected and intelligent doorknobs, light bulbs, small electronic devices etc, which form the next generation Internet of Things, Google’s Brillo would be compact and fit where Android fails, as it requires at least 512 MB of RAM, whereas Brillo would just need 32 MB of space which is perfect for compact devices.

Google’s Brillo has stiff competition from Microsoft’s IoT (Internet of Things) version of Windows 10 and Apple’s HomeKit. The last time we saw something similar from Google-Andriod@Home, it was scrapped after being announced. Let’s hope that this compact version makes internet realy portable and easily connectable.

Google’s Biggest Bloomer-Search for Nig**r House in Maps Leads to White House

Google

In one of the most shocking and repulsive goof-up’s through Google Maps, a search to the racially offensive term Nig**r House in Google Maps led straight to the White House map. This was confirmed many times by shocked reporters and bloggers online, and it did appear till early 20’ May.

From their part, an official Google’s release has said that inappropriate search result is being fixed quickly and apologized for the inconvenience.

Our readers might recall that we carried a post on the Apple mascot peeing on the iPhone in Map Maker last week, and it seems that Google needs to just check twice on the Map submissions to see that no major offensive gets viral over the internet.

The article is just an actual report and strictly and equivocally condemns racism and has high regard for the Office of the President of the United States.

Bing Joins Google in Penalizing Mobile Un-Friendly Sites

Bing-Joins-GoogleFor all of those having a website or blog of their own, it was recently announced by Google that mobile friendly sites will get a major boost in their rankings as Google is working towards penalizing sites which are not optimized for viewing through mobiles. Now, Bing has also given out a recent update that it would start highlighting mobile friendly sites in its search results-so that users can know that it would be an inconvenience to view them from a mobile device.

Ideally, a mobile friendly site should have easy scrolling, navigation to different pages and easily readable from a mobile screen apart from working on all major mobile platforms and resolutions. Else, viewers have to put-up with barely readable font and extensive side scrolling that makes browsing the site a harrowing experience.

If Google were a person: Embarrassing to Imagine!

If-Google-were-a-personJust imagine that Google were a real person!. He would probably have the world’s most frustrating job. It really sounds funny, but fact is that if the popular search engine compared a human being, really a lot more tough job for him?
Google has to deal with all the crud we type into the search engine and spit out results that match up to our perverted tastes, stoned questions, deepest fears, doddering mistakes all while trying to not to judge us.
Not only that but it has to be ready to burn all our embarrassing evidence and deal with inferior competitors like Siri who don’t understand what the hell we’re saying half the time.
It’s also funny as hell to imagine. College Humor continues their series of imagining a real guy as Google. It’s really embarrassing right?
