  • Google Patents Device That You Inject Into Your Eyeball

    The device, Forbes reports, is designed to help the focusing of light onto the retina, resulting in the correction of poor vision. It will contain its own storage, radio and lens and will apparently be powered wirelessly from an energy harvesting antenna. Presumably, you won't need aerials sticking out of your eyeballs. Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Wanted: Ten million Chinese students to civilize the Internet By Xu Yangjingjing and Simon Denyer April 10, 2015 China wants to recruit 10 million young people, mostly university students belonging to the Communist Partys youth wing, to spread positive energy on the Internet in other words, to use social media to praise and defend the government. Web users recently posted a document issued by the China Communist Youth League dated Feb. 13 that asks for no less than 20 percent of its members to be recruited as cyber civilization volunteers, who would be expected to become good Chinese Netizens...

    Ray Kurzweil, Google's chief futurist, laid out what he thinks the next few decades will look like in an interview with Playboy. Kurzweil is one of the biggest believers in The Singularity, the moment when humans with the aid of technology will supposedly live forever. He's chosen the year 2045 because, according to his calculations, "The nonbiological intelligence created in that year will reach a level thats a billion times more powerful than all human intelligence today." But even before 2045, Kurzweil thinks we could begin the deathless process. "I believe we will reach a point around 2029 when...

    Google has been one of Obama's strongest political backers. The symbiotic relationship has been good for both. In 2012 Google employees donated $804,249 to Obamas re-election effort. In 2008, Google employees contributed $817,855. Googles Eric Schmidt helped the Obama campaign recruit talent and coached the campaign manager. Last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that someone from Google attended a meeting at the White House an average of once a week throughout Obamas tenure in office. Recently Google has benefited by favorable decisions from federal agencies including the Federal Communications Commission and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ). The...

REUTERS/Francois Lenoir - The European competition commission is gearing up to charge Google with giving unfair prominence to its own apps like search and maps in supplementary software licensing deals it strikes with mobile phone makers running its Android operating system, four sources familiar with the process said on Monday. Google generated an estimated $11 billion (9.73 billion euros) last year from sales of ads running on Android phones featuring Google apps.

    A Supreme Court order issued today closes the book on (or perhaps merely ends this chapter of) more than a decade of legal warfare between Google and the Authors Guild over the legality of the formers scanning without permission of millions of copyrighted books. And the final word is: its fair use. The order is just an item in a long list of other orders that appeared today, and adds nothing to the argument except the tacit approval of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals 2015 decision itself approving an even earlier decision, that of the U.S. District Court...

    Google has abruptly killed off one of its April Fools' Day "jokes" after it caused outrage online, with multiple people claiming that it lost them their jobs. The premise of the joke was simple. In Gmail, next to the standard "Reply" button, Google added a "Mic drop" button. Using it would reply to the email, archive it and also add a GIF of a "Despicable Me" minion dropping a mic. "Email's great, but sometimes you just wanna hit the eject button," Google wrote in a tongue-and-cheek blog post explaining its purpose. "Like those heated threads at work, when everyone's...

In France last year, there were eight phones that were inaccessible to police - all tied in some way to terror attacks, reports Le Parisien.

    Apple was hailed as a champion of digital privacy this week after refusing to help the FBI hack into an iPhone belonging to a suspect in the San Bernardino shooting. But the firm hasn't always been so scrupulous about user data, especially in China. The standoff between the FBI and Apple over the investigation into the San Bernardino shooting, which claimed the lives of 14 people in early December, has divided the United States. While some have argued that the company should, in this particular case, help investigators by bypassing the phone's security system, others have insisted that doing so...

    Google GOOGL +0.83% is removing the loophole allowing European users to sidestep the ‘right to be forgotten’ ruling that censors their search results. After the European Court of Justice ruled two years ago that people could ask for search results to be removed if they contained inaccurate or ‘outdated’ information, Google attempted to strike a compromise. It complied with the order – but only for European versions of its website. This meant that European users wanting to see uncensored results have only to log on to Google.com to get the unedited version; and plenty do. This state of affairs, as...

    Popular credentials manager LastPass has taken steps to counter a "very simple" phishing attack that could see users' passwords, email addresses and two-factor authentication tokens stolen. Researcher Sean Cassidy posted proof of a successful phishing attack using a faked LastPass notification in a web browser earlier this month, following a presentation at hacker conference Schmoocon. By setting up a malicious website that displays notifications telling users their LastPass sessions have expired, Cassidy was able to create a page that lured people into entering their credentials for the password manager. The researcher called the attack LostPass. A successful capture of user...

    Samsung's got some new friends in its legal battle against Apple -- including farmers, African American small businesses and an electronics retailer. Legal experts, nonprofit organizations and technology companies have filed amicus or "friend of the court" briefs in support of Samsung, urging the US Supreme Court to consider the patent-infringement case. They want the nation's highest court to better define design patents and limit the damages that can be awarded. And they're using Apple v. Samsung as the case that hopefully gets the federal government to enact patent reforms, preventing so-called patent trolls from cashing in on intellectual property....

    The Obama administration is taking a $4 billion gamble on self-driving cars as the vehicles of the future. This past Thursday at the Detroit Auto Show, Department of Transportation secretary Anthony Foxx unveiled a plan to develop a legal framework for autonomous driving technology that would encourage consistent rules across all 50 states. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will be in charge in drafting the framework. Although the federal government can dictate manufacturing regulations, non-interstate highway traffic laws are left to the states. California, Nevada, Michigan and Florida have their own respective regulations on self-driving cars, creating a...

    Charles Perrault, author of Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella was born 388 years ago, and has been commemorated with a Google Doodle. Perrault was born in Paris in 1628, and was a lawyer before turning his hand to the written word. While the Brothers Grimm are widely credited with creating the fairy tale as we know it, Perrault actually wrote stories called Le Petit Chaperon Rouge, La Belle au bois dormant and Cendrillon a full 200 years before. In 1695, aged 67, he wrote Tales and Stories of the Past with Morals, a series of moral tales...

    The Google Doodle today is about a Frenchman who apparently preceeded Hans Christian Andersen and the Grimm Brothers in the Fairy Tale genre. "Charles Perrault [(1628-1703)], author of Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella was born 388 years ago, and has been commemorated with a Google Doodle." - Rhiannon Williams, "Who was Charles Perrault? Why the fairy tales you know may not be as they seem" Google's Doodle today is not linking to their own servers, or WikiMedia Foundation, but directly to the reactionary, patriarchal (though distinctly not "homophobic") servers of Telegraph.Co.UK. Here is the Doodle. Here is...
