the power of google

When you think of Google, search engines and emails may come to mind, but there is a lot more to the company than just these runaway successes. It is true that Google dominates search and email, but did you know that YouTube is owned and powered by Google and so are many other online services that you may already be aware of. Over time, Google has grown from a company that provides the best search engine on the internet to one that can power almost every aspect of our computing lives. Google now provides the most popular email service in the world and enables people to store billions of documents online. It provides ultra-fast broadband and the operating system for the most popular smartphones – it sometimes feels that everything…

You will likely know the most popular apps and services that Google runs, but there are other apps that the company has either acquired or developed over time that may surprise you. Some of these apps offer no obvious indication at all that Google is involved, but you can be assured that they will work flawlessly and bear all of the hallmarks of the Google system behind the scenes. Reliability, accuracy and speed are obvious throughout. From communitybased navigation to image editing, Google’s reach extends way beyond the obvious and into a variety of areas, but ones that remain eminently useful. The company is now even delving in to the world of home automation, too, but no matter what unusual Google app you use, chances are that it will work…

the mobile revolution

Android as we know it today has become the dominant mobile operating system in a market that has been greatly expanded over the past decade. Smartphones and tablets are ubiquitous around the world and Android is well placed to cater for more people than any other platform out there. Google offers Android to any hardware developer that would like to build devices running it and because of this we have a plethora of phones and tablets at all price ranges that offer a similar experience. In many ways it does not matter if Android is running on a budget device or a product designed to appeal to those who only want to use the best, because the core of the experience will remain the same.

the future of google drones

Drones are currently receiving a lot of attention and much of it is quite negative, but the potential future uses for this technology are actually very positive. Google has already started testing drones in Project Wing to deliver goods to customers, which would potentially greatly speed up receipt and also cut a lot of waste out of the traditional delivery systems we still use today. It sounds bizarre, but Google has tested delivering a package using a drone, which lowers the package by a type of fishing line from 150 feet in the air. This type of technology would be ideal for so many of the items that we purchase currently and will likely be more environmentally friendly and safer as well. Concerns remain over safety and the privacy implications of…

cardboard 2.0

What a difference a year makes in the world of technology. Last year Google gave away its Cardboard virtual reality headset as a free gift to developers at the end of the Google I/O conference. This year, the product was firmly placed in centre stage during the conference keynote. One million Cardboard viewers have been shipped worldwide and over 500 compatible apps are available on the Play store. But Google is not going to stop there. With a new-look Cardboard viewer and an ambitious vision to make sharing virtual reality experiences accessible to everyone, the tech giant is pushing the envelope of virtual reality. VR for everyone If you’re not familiar with Cardboard, it’s similar to the Samsung Gear VR that was also launched last year. If that still doesn’t mean anything…
