Looks like Google released a new app for Android: Cloud Console.
Didn't really expect that.
The Cloud Console enables you to manage your solution running on the Google...

Google is currently working on a Material type redesign of the ChromeOS settings. Still WIP though.

+Florian Kiersch I'm using the Asus Chromebox i3 with the Samsung U28D590D running at 4K since August now.
It's like having a Retina iMac for a third of the price ;-)

The reports of Google+'s death have been greatly exaggerated (again)

Google+ Chief Architect +Yonatan Zunger says there'll be "no big user-facing changes" connected to the reorganization of G+, Photos, and Hangouts that we've been hearing about over the past several days. ¹

His full comment: ²

A lot of misunderstanding and speculation. :) The internal org was renamed "Photos and Streams," because Sundar likes org names that match what the teams do. And since our org includes Photos, Google+, Blogger, and News, there you have photos, plus several streams of content.

No big user-facing changes tied to this at all.

So stand down, gravediggers. This "ghost town" is still alive and kickin', and we ghosts aren't goin' anywhere anytime soon.

Really interesting talk in general but also very interesting in regards of the qna afterwards, as it gives some insight on what Googlers think about this topic.

No, this is not Google asking for feedback on Google Chrome. It's actually Microsoft. Currently using the Windows 10 Preview and suddenly this question popped up while browsing with Chrome.

I wonder why the question doesn't say: how scroogled do you feel using Google Chrome? ;)

+Madis Otenurm Something along that line, yes. They actually ask what would make Chrome better.

There were some news yesterday, about the "leaked" Interactive Events app for Android. Apparently someone selected an older internal version for publication which got fixed by now.

There is also a web app version of it under

Thanks to todays update of the Android app, also the purpose got confirmed. The description now says:

"The Google Events App will allow guests, attending events run by Google, to interact with speakers on stage, take notes, participate in Q&A, connect to social media, and request further follow up information. The app is not available at events not organised by Google."

So basically it's a general purpose tool for all the upcoming public and non-public events at Google and likely also replaces the I/O app for this year.

Edit: as mentioned in the comments and later confirmed by Google, this app will NOT replace the I/O app.

So for all those of you still remembering the small puzzle series I posted in December...

The "solution" got publicly announced today:

Once again thanks a lot +David Schmidt to actually taking the time to solve it. ;)
I bet you had some Tuesday afternoon fun doing that, +Florian Kiersch. Now, what is it? That new rumored Google Profile?

+jani koskela Google tends to test new stuff internally for quite some time.
I think usually, new products or product updates are first tested by the team working on it, then get released as opt-in to Googlers as dogfood, then rolled out to everyone inside Google. After this there might be a trusted tester phase for external people and following that one, you'd finally reach the point of a public rollout.
Three months is actually a short period considering that I already found stuff before, that got released more then one year later.

For all the Material Design lovers out there:

It's possible I missed this previously. If you know when it got updated, feel free to leave a comment!

$300 Million Bank Heist

In what's possibly the biggest (and longest) bank robbery in history,  Kaspersky Labs reports that since 2013 more than 100 banks in 30 nations have lost upwards of $300 million in a highly sophisticated, coordinated malware attack. Cyber criminals transferred cash to dozens of holding accounts around the world -- and they might still be inside bank networks. That means the total amount stolen could still rise.

#BankHeist    #cyberattack    #malware
Banks in Russia, Japan, the US, and Europe have fallen victim to a massive, sophisticated malware hack, allowing the perpetrators to steal hundreds of millions of dollars since 2013. According to a...
