In a public but little-noticed application with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Monday, Google asked the agency for permission to conduct tests in California across different wireless spectrums, including a rarely-used millimeter-wave frequency capable of transmitting large amounts of data.

It is unclear from the heavily redacted filing what exactly Google intends to do, but it does signal the Internet giant’s broader ambition of controlling Internet connectivity. The technology it seeks to test could form the basis of a wireless connection that can be broadcast to homes, obviating the need for an actual ground cable or fiber connection, experts say.
Experiment could help the Internet giant provide high-speed connections minus the high cost of installing fiber, as it has already done in several cities.

Google Inc. is set to unveil its new U.S. wireless service as early as Wednesday, pushing the Internet giant further into telecom and injecting fresh uncertainty into a wireless industry already locked in a price war.

In a key development, the service is expected to allow customers to pay only for the amount of data they actually use each month, people familiar with the matter said—a move that could further push carriers to do away with lucrative “breakage.”

+YouTube quietly gets a built in GIF creator

It seems we'll no longer have to use random sites and awkward tools to create all of those #pixelpushing  GIFs that you all seem to love so much. YouTube has started to roll out a new GIF creation tool to at least some videos. There's no word if this tool is going to hit every video or if this is something creators will have to opt into. Check to see if your favorite video is supported by hitting the share button and then selecting the GIF tab.

Remember back in November of last year, when I wrote that YouTube needed to build their own tool for making GIFs from videos? Some called me crazy. Many,..

Dismissed as yet another short-term computer fad when first released in 2011, everyone is taking Google (GOOG) Chromebooks seriously these days. According to new quarterly data from ABI Research, Chromebook shipments increased by 67% quarter-over-quarter and are now projected to double in size year-over year.  The study found Acer continued to maintain its lead over other vendors in the market, including Samsung (SSNLF) , Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) , and Dell.
New research says Chromebook shipments increased by 67% quarter-over-quarter and will soon double in size year-over year.

Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana were drubbed by Google Now in a test to determine which mobile voice-controlled search engine provides the best results.

Smile at someone. Make someone laugh. Make someone's day! :D
Introduction
I care about many things but don't take anything too seriously. I really like people with a good sense of humor and like to make people smile and laugh. I believe in the saying "laughter is the best medicine". The rest of this will be a work in progress...
Bragging rights
Yeah, I've survived school, work, an earthquake, hurricanes, bear markets, lousy Redskins' seasons and some other things. Redskins fan! More later, maybe...maybe not...
