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!

Actually, I already expected Google Scholar to get axed but this seems to indicate a different direction.

Btw. at least for me, the extension does not (yet) work properly.

Google scholar getting axed? OK, but let me finish University first. Then it would be OK (not fine) with me. I'm just so much more used to issuing Googley queries.

Google Meetings is coming.

Login currently appears to be limited to Googlers, so it's only possible for Googlers to create events. It's possible to join as a guest though, given you have an event code or know one of the participants.

There's also a supporting Chrome extension.

It's not clear yet, whether this will become a (business-) consumer product, or whether it will be a public-facing management tool for Googlers to create events and invite external people.

I assume there might be an announcement soon, if this is meant to become a consumer product.

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 ;-)

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.

Hopefully family accounts are next. I still don't understand why I can't share my Google Music subscription with my wife without giving her access to all my emails etc as well.

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.
