    I'm beginning to doubt that they stick to their "don't be evil" mantra.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually manage to win that one... given how pervasive lobbying is in the US. Sigh.

    I'm sure there's something more to this kind of story.

    Cos if there isn't, Google, fuck off.

    It used to be that the best name was something unique and "empty" that could be given meaning by the company that owned it.

    Walkman, wii, xbox, aerobie, layzboy

    Wtf with all the Glass, Paper, Edge, Candy etc? Why not call them Strog, Eilers or Çait?

    Piss poor by the lot.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Anyone know how to set up Google now so it can sort my itinerary out for my trip to Rome this week?

    @ILoveThrashMetal put everything in your calendar with correct times and reminders and locations etc and it should do its best to remind you where you need to be and what time you need to set off.

    Driverless car prototype revealed

    You'd think they'd at least have the option for a manual override. Maybe they'll include that later.

    Or not. That'll teach me for not reading the article.

    It has an emergency stop button.


    I really wish they'd stop using that kind of music in every tech vid.

    I'm reminded of this really interesting article from The Guardian a while ago:

    Google and their big AI project

    Quite long, but worth reading.

    I'd be better if it didn't have that sinister spinning dalek appendage on top.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    In order to stop cybercrime and government snooping, Google seem to be assembling their own superhero team.

    I met George Hotz a couple of times, he was sharing an apartment with a friend. Bought him a drink for fucking Sony over.

    Fuck me that is some clever shit. Doubt it will come to my part of the world.

    On another note, i am slowly getting more scared of how much stuff Google Now can do on android. Is clever and useful, but do have to wonder where it stops.

    Right so I have to have a strange blue arrow to the left of search results.

    Rather than being able to scroll down the page using my keypad I seem to go from result to result individually.

    How do I fix this fuck up?

    Disabling instant search from Google's search settings page works, but it does disable the other things instant search does.

    Yeah, it only seems to occur if I return to the search results after clicking a link.

    I read this morning that Google now spends more on lobbying the US government than Goldman Sachs.

    Hooray for Google! :/
