Rethinking office space | Official Google Blog

The idea is simple. Instead of constructing immoveable concrete buildings, we’ll create lightweight block-like structures which can be moved around easily as we invest in new product areas. (Our self-driving car team, for example, has very different needs when it comes to office space from our Search engineers.) Large translucent canopies will cover each site, controlling the climate inside yet letting in light and air. With trees, landscaping, cafes, and bike paths weaving through these structures, we aim to blur the distinction between our buildings and nature.

Smartphones: Apple Knows What It’s Doing, Google Doesn’t | Seeking Alpha

The decline in Google’s stock price in 2014 has been sad to watch. Google started out the year at the pinnacle of the smartphone world, with Apple badly behind on multiple fronts.

Then, for reasons unknown, Google lost its way. I can’t see a single smart product management decision Google has made in 2014, as it relates to selling phones directly to the consumer. It’s in the process of killing every single product Android enthusiasts and developers love, replacing them all with one single product that almost nobody likes.

Thoughts on Google+ | Medium

I fucked up. So has Google.

To my point, most people would likely describe Google+ as a newsfeed, a kind of Facebook-lite… Why did the world need another Facebook, unless to benefit Google by making their ad targeting more effective?

Lately, I just feel like Google+ is confused and adrift at sea. It’s so far behind, how can it possibly catch up?

So the fundamental problem that I have with Google+ is that I just don’t understand it. And what I don’t understand makes me nervous — and should make you nervous too.

Google Glass Is Dead; Long Live Smart Glasses | MIT Technology Review

Seeing a computer on your face makes some people, for various reasons, extremely annoyed. The “explorers” have become widely known as “glassholes.”

But despite Google’s missteps, the technology isn’t going away. The idea that Glass represents—allowing you to ingest digital information at a glance—has appealed for decades to die-hards like Thad Starner, a Glass technical lead who has been making and wearing these kinds of gadgets since 1993. Researchers are going to keep plugging away until we get to a point where the technology blends into the glasses themselves, rather than sitting so obviously atop them.

All Eyes on Apple as Google Search Deal Expires Next Year | The Information

Google has always been the default search engine in Apple’s browser on the iPhone and iPad as well as on its desktops and laptops starting years earlier. But that deal is up for renewal in early 2015, sources tell The Information, and Yahoo and Microsoft have separately begun to pitch Apple executive Eddy Cue for the business, according to people at those companies who were briefed about the bake-off.

Everything Google knows about you (and how it knows it) | The Washington Post

If you have an Android phone, that device may log your location and velocity data. If you have a YouTube account, Google knows not only what videos you upload, but which you watch, too. There’s Google Maps. Google Play. Google Voice, if you use it to transcribe your missed calls. Between Google Contacts and Chat, the site has a pretty good idea who you’re friends with.

And while browsing data is aggregated differently than information from Google services, if you visit sites running Google Ads or Google Analytics software, Google also generally knows what you look at and what you click. According to one report from UC Berkeley’s School of Information, Google can track user behavior on 88 percent of all Internet domains.
