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

The "solution" got publicly announced today:
https://contacts.google.com/preview

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.

$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...

Any links on this new in product help? The lack of contextual help has traditionally been such a stumbling block for 'digital immigrants' ... The early successes of MS probably had something to do with the F1 help keys' ubiquity...

Hello everyone.

I'd be interested in your opinions. What would you think about a Google product competing with Uber?

Check out the video. A really nice performance.

We strongly urge you to take three minutes to watching this incredibly inventive dance performance that makes use of a fully interactive set that responds in real-time to a team of dancers.

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.

And another one bites the dust. :/
 
I was excited about Helpouts. Too bad I never received my invitation code.

+Florian Kiersch I can imagine that dedicating more computing power to a succesful service is a no-brainer for Google. But I suppose it's really hard to justify investing in translations, staff education, lawyers/policies/regulation-compliance (biggest one IMO), support, promo and whatnot when the service's adoption (rate) is poor already in the US...

+Black Menu just received another awesome little update. If you haven't tried it yet but you use a lot of Google services, this extension might be worth a try.

Black Menu offers easy access to nearly all major Google products and can improve your daily workflow on the web.

One note in advance though: the extension allows access to nearly all of the important Google services from within its menu. As such, it also asks for a lot of access permissions.

Depending on the BM pages, you can refuse to grant the permission but it will reduce the amount of features available and will somewhat cripple the extension.
 
I'm happy to announce +Black Menu for Google v8.4. This update adds the Docs, Slides and Sheets pages, alongside several improvements to the drive page and quite some performance improvements and bugfixes.

You can download the extension here:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/black-menu-for-google/eignhdfgaldabilaaegmdfbajngjmoke

P.S. For those experiencing performance issues, please remove all pages you don't use by dragging them on the "more" item. If that doesn't solve the issue, try enabling the setting "Only load pages after opening them" under "general settings", on top of that, you can also enable the "Open pages by click instead of hover" setting to increase performance even more.

[Request] Just received a fake "WhatsApp" Email-notification pointing to some Russian hosted website. Nothing special.

But I got curious when I saw the headers. There are several custom fields there. The field names are apparently garbage but what about the field values? Seems as if they might have a purpose.

Anyone out there who handles spam on a regular basis and has an idea if this is meant to be a way of getting around spam filters or something else? I'd be interested in some opinions. Thanks!
