Google’s Password Manager now checks for breached credentials – Naked Security
Bookmarking this to be aware of it, but I absolutely refuse to use a browser-integrated password manager.

"In February, the search and advertising giant released Password Checkup, a Chrome extension that checks passwords to see if they are secure. When users enter a username and password, the extension checks a hashed version of the credentials against Google’s internal database of four billion unsafe logins. If the extension finds a match, it will warn the user and suggest that they reset their password.

Now, the company has decided to integrate this feature directly into its password manager, which is the feature in Chrome that asks if you want to save the login credentials for online services and reuse them later."

Manage Google Voice & Audio Activity - Computer - Google Search Help
You can listen to every voice command you have issued to your Google phone.

Filed under big-brother because it can be scary to go back and listen to your voice for things you thought were just issuing commands -- not being recorded.

A huge step to recommend to parents, Fiama and everyone else for keeping safe on the internet.

Universal 2nd Factor - U2F are physical keys that replace passwords. They are currently only supported by a handful of sites, but will continue to reach wider adoption with time.

The Man Who Spent $100K To Remove A Lie From Google : NPR
A turkish kid tries to pull a scam on a financial advisor in the US. The financial advisor catches on and reports him to the police. Turkish kid and his family are arrested and deported back to Turkey. Turkish kid sets up a website defaming the financial advisor. Google refuses to do anything about it even after a court order. Eventually, the guy has to spend $100,000 in overseas courts to have European privacy laws apply and the page is eventually taken down. Turkish kid is still an asshole.

André Staltz - The Web began dying in 2014, here's how
predictions, obsolete-discontinued-abandoned = "The Web may die like most other technologies do: simply by becoming less attractive than newer technologies. And like most obsolete technologies, they don’t suddenly disappear, neither do they disappear completely. You can still buy a Walkman and listen to a tape with it, but the technology has nevertheless lost its collective relevance. The Web’s death will come as a gradual decay of its necessity, not as a dramatic loss."

This was written before Project Fi came about, and reading the latest update (2009) of the app as well as the latest reviews, it seems it no longer works, but perhaps I can find some reliable alternative. ------ SMS Backup & Restore by Ritesh Sahu might be viable: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.riteshsahu.SMSBackupRestore&hl=en

How Google Maps knows about traffic - Business Insider
In this case Waze is the "Goliath" I'm referring to because it was so much better than Google Maps/Navigation, but I know... Google's a Goliath, too. But my point is that an app that was that much better could be replaced by one that was sub-par simply by improving the latter over and over and over again. Never give up.

Google's finally selling its $85 Chromebit dongle, but you should buy the Remix Mini instead
The Remix Mini looks like it would work well (with a wireless keyboard/mouse) by plugging it directly into the projector.

Google will reportedly copy Motorola and make a Chromecast audio dongle
Is this similar to my idea about the 3.5mm "bluetooth thing" you plug into an audio source and into a speaker you want to play it to and it turns any speaker into, essentially, a wireless speaker.

Google CFO retires with a candid memo about work/life balance
Patrick Pichette ......... and the following: "Google CFO quit for work/life balance, so they replaced him with a workaholic" http://mashable.com/2015/03/24/google-morgan-stanley-cfo/ ............. I fucking hate that we cannot just calm the fuck down. Just because you can do something, does not mean you should.

Never trust a corporation to do a library’s job — The Message — Medium
david-vs-goliath = Not that anyone was fighting Google on this, but if they had been, here's proof that they would have won if they had stuck it out. ... update: Just realized that The Internet Archive (archive.org) has been doing this since 1996, 2 years before Google was founded. ............ business-culture = "As it turns out, organizing the world’s information isn’t always profitable. Projects that preserve the past for the public good aren’t really a big profit center. Old Google knew that, but didn’t seem to care. The desire to preserve the past died along with 20% time, Google Labs, and the spirit of haphazard experimentation."

Google pulls plug on Glass, but the idea lives on | ZDNet
"Glass was a product plagued by problems right from the start, from the $1,500 price tag (despite the bill of materials for the parts being only a little over $150), the initial limited release, to the goofy look. However, the most controversial feature of Glass was the front-facing camera. It seems that there were no shortage of people who didn't like cameras being in their faces."

Google's New CAPTCHA Is Easier For Proving Your Humanity
Interesting, I never knew this: "We’ve known CAPTCHAs for years for their awful distorted text that’s hard to read and get right a lot of the time. Google set out to fix that a year and a half ago, when it discovered that it could teach computers how to beat the traditional CAPTCHA with 99.8 percent accuracy and realized that if it could do that, so could others."

What Thomas L. Friedman Didn’t Report About Getting Hired by Google | LinkedIn
"Bock was quoted as saying, “…For every job, though, the No. 1 thing we look for is general cognitive ability, and it’s not I.Q. It’s learning ability. It’s the ability to process on the fly. It’s the ability to pull together disparate bits of information. We assess that using structured behavioral interviews that we validate to make sure they’re predictive.”"
