If, like me, you did not see President Obama's eulogy for the late Rev. Pinckney, here it is in full. Drop everything. Watch. It is a moment of amazing leadership.

I'm delighted to see +Larry Page, Google, and +Daniel Doctoroff working on improving the lives of communities in cities using technology. As journalists, we should collaborate with such efforts as this. Our work in social journalism and news ecosystems at CUNY (not to mention entrepreneurial journalism) is my starting point....
 
Many of you are reading this post while living in a city. And you can probably think of a ton of ways you’d like your city to be better—more affordable housing, better public transport, less pollution, more parks and green spaces, safer biking paths, a shorter commute... the list goes on!

Many cities around the world have already made a lot of progress in some of these areas—for instance, developing dashboards to measure and visualize traffic patterns, and building tools that let residents instantly evaluate and provide feedback on city services. But a lot of urban challenges are interrelated—for example, availability of transportation affects where people choose to live, which affects housing prices, which affects quality of life. So it helps to start from first principles and get a big-picture view of the many factors that affect city life. Then, you can develop the technologies and partnerships you need to make a difference.

So I’m very excited about +Sidewalk Labs​, a new company we’ve announced today. (The press release is at www.sidewalkinc.com if you want to read more).  Sidewalk will focus on improving city life for everyone by developing and incubating urban technologies to address issues like cost of living, efficient transportation and energy usage. The company will be led by Dan Doctoroff, former CEO of Bloomberg and Deputy Mayor of Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York. Every time I talk with Dan I feel an amazing sense of opportunity because of all the ways technology can help transform cities to be more livable, flexible and vibrant.  I want to thank +Adrian who helped to bring Dan on board.

While this is a relatively modest investment and very different from Google's core business, it’s an area where I hope we can really improve people’s lives, similar to Google[x] and Calico. Making long-term, 10X bets like this is hard for most companies to do, but Sergey and I have always believed that it’s important. And as more and more people around the world live, work and settle in cities, the opportunities for improving our urban environments are endless. Now it’s time to hit the streets and get to work!
We're on the brink of a historic period for cities around the world. By 2050, the population in cities will double, intensifying existing socioeconomic, public health and environmental problems. At the same time, innovations in technology can be used to design communities that are more efficient ...

As a matter of fact, Mr. Jarvis, don't you and other journalists already collaborate with Google by trumpeting its every brainfart as a breakthrough for humanity?

+Carl Page I cannot call Tesla a "normal" car OEM. They are the bleeding edge of car manufacture and forcing tech into the car market. 

But We have known about Android Auto for at least a year and the first car with it was just announced this week - And it is a Hyundai Sonata.... While I will not be running out to grab one - Just about anything is better than Ford Sync that I have right now.. 

Chevrolet also announced that they will be basically applying Android Auto to their entire vehicle lineup....

That said I know my next vehicle choice will be based heavily on what tech it supports, more than who the vehicle maker is...

And car companies need to worry about this...

Less cameras wouldn't allow the 3D stereoscopic video to be created. You need the extra cameras to get enough depth information.
