Google Reader joins graveyard of dead Google products

Google Reader joins graveyard of dead Google products
It’s hard to lose a loved one, especially if that loved one is a Google service. That’s why we’re opening the gates of the Google Graveyard, a virtual space for grieving. Buried in these hallowed grounds are some of Google’s ill-fated services. Click on a grave to leave a flower, and let the healing process begin. Full-time graveyard staff robots clear out withered flowers regularly; only the last 3,000 are shown. Update, June 30, 2014: A new grave was added to the graveyard after Google announced that its first foray into social networking, Orkut, has passed into the technological nether.

Apple possède de nombreuses boutiques Apple Store à travers le monde. Google propose déjà quelques produits et s'apprête à en lancer des nouveaux dans les mois à venir. Avec l'arrivée de ses nouveaux produits, Google aurait donc tout à gagner avec l'ouverture de magasins. Voir aussi : A découvrir également : Soyez le premier à réagir !

10 of the Best Photo Editing Sites of 2013 “Best photo editing sites?” you say. “You can do that on the Internet these days?” Indeed! But that shouldn’t be surprising these days, should it? Just carrying around a smart phone makes it easier than ever before to take digital photos anywhere and anywhen — it’s one of the greatest gifts of modern times (or curses if you’re prone to “friends” taking embarrassing photos of you and sharing them with everyone on Facebook). And then there are those of us who like to do a little more with our captured people and places. With access to a Web browser, this is absolutely possible. PicMonkey Do you like your favorite photo editing sites to feature “photo editing made of win?” PicMonkey is free, and no registration is required, but you can upgrade to PicMonkey Royale “for as little as $2.75 a month” to get “a kingly hoard of primo effects, fonts, overlays, and textures.” Pixenate Pixenate is simple, and Pixenate is free.

Вся правда о Дигидроген Моноксиде Ужас, что творится! Исследователи обнаружили факт наличия в водопроводных системах (в том числе в России) одного потенциального опасного химиката. Этот химикат не имеет цвета, вкуса или запаха. Сегодня ДГМО используется для следующих целей: По английски ДГМО - Dihydrogen monoxide.Ссылки по теме (на английском): Страшно? ДГМО - это H2O. В Новой Зеландии член парламента Джаки Дин обратился в министерство по контролю за наркотиками, с вопросом о том, не стоит ли запретить ДГМО. В марте 2004-ого года в Калифорнии, в муниципалитете Ализо Вейджо муниципальные власти были убеждены во вредности ДГМО и даже назначили дату голосования, для запрета использования контейнеров, содержащих пену, поскольку те, кроме всего прочего, содержали страшный ДГМО. www.snopes.com/science/dhmo.asp

lapse: Landsat Satellite Images of Climate Change, via Google Earth Engine TIME and Space | By Jeffrey Kluger Editors note:On Nov. 29, 2016, Google released a major update expanding the data from 2012 to 2016. Read about the update here. Spacecraft and telescopes are not built by people interested in what’s going on at home. That changed when NASA created the Landsat program, a series of satellites that would perpetually orbit our planet, looking not out but down. Over here is Dubai, growing from sparse desert metropolis to modern, sprawling megalopolis. It took the folks at Google to upgrade these choppy visual sequences from crude flip-book quality to true video footage. These Timelapse pictures tell the pretty and not-so-pretty story of a finite planet and how its residents are treating it — razing even as we build, destroying even as we preserve. Chapter 1: Satellite Story | By Jeffrey Kluger It’s a safe bet that few people who have grown up in the Google era have ever heard of Stewart Udall. But in 1966, Udall and his staff had an idea. 1 of 20 1 of 14

Google Translate now serves 200 million people daily SAN FRANCISCO -- Google Translate provides a billion translations a day for 200 million users, the company revealed here Friday at its Google I/O show for developers. Google doesn't often share details about the scale on which it operates, but Josh Estelle, leader for Google Translate's front-end and mobile engineering, had a few statistics to share about the service during a talk about it. Estelle, who's worked on Google Translate for seven years, also said 92 percent of the usage is from people outside the United States. The Internet is famously English-centric, but it's expanding gradually to other languages, helped in part by technological change such as right-to-left text support in browsers, and Web addresses that can be written in non-Roman alphabets. The service now works in 71 languages; the last five added are Bosnian, Cebuano, Hmong, Javanese, and Marathi, Estelle said. Google Translate launched with third-party technology but eventually switched to Google's own. • Ubiquity.

Scroogled : quand Microsoft attaque Google sur la vie privée Vous en avez sûrement entendu parler hier ou aujourd’hui, Microsoft s’est lancé dans une attaque frontale contre Google et plus particulièrement contre son service Gmail. Le nom de l’opération Scroogled ! Un jeu de mot (plein de finesse) qui signifie en étant gentil « se faire avoir par Google’ (sic)… Quelques détails sur cette opération marketing de déstabilisation qui fait déjà beaucoup de bruit. Microsoft en croisade contre la publicité ciblée Même si ça peut faire sourire, Microsoft a lancé sa campagne contre Gmail pour protester contre l’utilisation du corps des e-mails pour faire de la publicité ciblée. Le slogan de cette opération est lui aussi particulièrement bien trouvé : « Vous pensez que Google respecte votre vie privée ? Et pour vous convaincre que Google piétine au quotidien vos secrets les plus personnels et les plus intimes, Microsoft s’est lancé dans une véritable opération de « trolling » en reprenant notamment les pires discours des dirigeants adverses.

Fever° Red hot. Well read. An Effin' AI In BioShock Infinite Is More Of A Human Than I Am "No. But I can steal from the cash register in the ice cream shop! Just what I never wanted!" I get what you're saying, and somewhat agree with you on the whole, but at the same time, this character you're controlling—Booker—isn't a cipher in the way most FPS characters are. Obviously, this creates a disconnect between player/player character, and I would agree that's problematic. (Also, I'm bracketing the discussion on whether this disconnect even needs to be addressed because, as we often see on web sites and forums, exploiting that disconnect and "breaking" the game is often half the fun for certain games.) I know he has his own motivations, he still doesn't feel like a person to me! I think part of the issue is that the game's desire to be coy about what's going on requires Booker to still remain somewhat blank, and as a result, you have a character with motivations but the underpinning of those motivations remain relatively unknown until the very end.

Time to back away from the cookie jar? Introducing nutrition info in search Figuring out how to make smart choices about some of our favorite foods can often be a cumbersome and daunting process. So we’re hoping we can make those choices a little bit easier: starting today you will be able to quickly and easily find extensive nutrition information for over 1,000 fruits, vegetables, meats and meals in search. From the basics of potatoes and carrots to more complex dishes like burritos and chow mein, you can simply ask, “How much protein is in a banana?” This new nutritional information builds on our work on the Knowledge Graph, which brings together all kinds of information from across the web that wasn't easily accessible. This feature will begin to launch today in English and will be rolling out in the US over the next ten days.

Sky ©2017 Google - Terms of Use Image Credit: DSS Consortium, SDSS, NASA/ESA Google X : l'offensive serait prévue au printemps Sur fond de publication des résultats financiers de Google, on attendait des précisions sur le projet « Google X« . Un surnom donné à une gamme de terminaux (smartphone + tablette) nouvelle génération conçue en collaboration avec Motorola Mobility. Leurs premières vraies réalisations en commun. Des premiers indices dans ce sens étaient apparus fin 2012. Mais il faudra se contenter de spéculation et parier que ce(s) nouveau(x) modèle(s) sorte(ent) au printemps. Simultanément à la session Google I/O pour les développeurs, prévue entre le 15 et le 17 mai à San Francisco ? Après avoir bouclé le rachat de Motorola Mobility en août 2011, les équipes de développements avaient besoin d’un cycle de 12 à 18 mois pour présenter de nouveaux produits. ComputerWorld considère donc que le printemps 2013 pourrait coïncider avec la fin de la période de développement. Dans une récente interview accordée à Wired, Larry Page, CEO de Google, estimait qu’il y avait encore de la place dans l’innovation hardware.
