Some new, Google Maps related icon showed up. Might be for the new "Street View".

A somewhat interesting topic.
 
Should robots be allowed to take a human life?

I'm part of an international, NGO called the Open Roboethics Initiative, which researches the public's opinion on the ethical use of robots and Artificial Intelligence. It would be of great help to our research if you could take a few minutes to answer this survey.

Last month, we updated our post on "Workshop," a rumored service for creating custom phone cases and live wallpapers based on maps or photos, with an image of a Nexus 6 in a custom Maps case(1).

At the time, I didn't know what the symbol on the back of the case was, but now with the release of the new Skrillex Edition live cases(2) and the Google Live Case app(3), things are becoming a bit more clear. There may be hope for Workshop yet!

This is pretty much worse case personal computer vulnerability here. If you know a zero-day browser vulnerability you can install a rootkit just by having users visit a site you control.
Hack allows firmware to be rewritten right after older Macs awake from sleep.

Google Patents will probably be one of the next Google Search related web-apps to receive Material Design, similar to Google Flights before.

Recently its sandbox showed up (no screenies), which usually means, it will be public within 1-3 months from there.

Sieht für mich übrigens auch so aus, dass nach Hangouts und Fotos auch Collections und Communities eigene Apps werden. Denn die haben ebenfalls eigene Benachrichtigungssymbole.

Im Grunde wird wohl die gesamte Navi-Leiste von Google+ in Einzel-Apps aufgelöst …
Profil und Circles kann dabei ja die Kontakte-App aufnehmen, die Events natürlich der Kalender.

A nextgen Darknet is in the works...

Tor plans to double the encryption strength of hidden service’s identity key and to allow offline storage for that key, a major security upgrade.

Next-gen hidden services will also be able to run from multiple hosts to better deal with denial of service attacks and high traffic, closing the scalability gap between the Dark Net and normal websites.

Led by data scientist Christopher White, this project is explicitly not aimed at de-anonymizing any Tor user or “accessing information not intended to be publicly available,” according to a recent DARPA blog post. Still, government funding of Tor—which, by the way, was invented as a U.S. Navy research project in 2002—has always been somewhat controversial.

This isn't the first time DARPA has contributed financially to Tor. A 2001-2006 stint as sponsor stands next to similar grants from the U.S. Navy, State Department, and the National Science Foundation as government sponsorships over the past decade.
