Google is notorious for its fiendishly difficult and somewhat bizarre interview questions. But failed applicants should take heart: even Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet, Google’s parent, struggled to answer the brainteaser once put to Google interviewees.

Writing in the New York Times Google's chairman Eric Schmidt said a "Spell-check for hate' is needed. Another remark states "As with all great advances in technology, expanded Web access has also brought with it some serious challenges, like threats to free speech, qualms about surveillance and fears of online terrorist activity. For all the good people can do with new tools and new inventions, there are always some who will seek to do harm. Ever since there’s been fire, there’s been arson"

A man who briefly bought and owned the Google.com web domain has been rewarded by the search giant.
In the early hours of 29 September he noticed a for sale sign next to the Google.com name while browsing sites on Google's own website-buying service.
Mr Ved has been given a "bug bounty" by Google's security team for revealing the weakness in the domain buying system. The internal emails Mr Ved received while in charge of google.com have been passed to this team.

Shares of Google Inc rose nearly 12 percent after the Web search leader's profit beat forecasts for the first time in the last six quarters, boosted by strong advertising revenue and comments by its new chief financial officer on disciplined spending.
Google rallied to $673.50 in extended trading after closing at $601.78 on Nasdaq. That would mark an all-time high for the stock in regular trading if it closes at that level on Friday, adding roughly $40 billion to its market value.
Google remains the most valuable publicly traded U.S. company after Apple Inc.

Cellphone users, Google Inc. is calling.
The Internet giant launched a wireless service across much of the U.S. Wednesday, entering an industry riven by a price war between leaders AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. and upstarts T-Mobile US Inc. and Sprint Corp.
Google said its new service, called Project Fi, will cost $20 a month for talk and texts, including Wi-Fi hookups and international coverage in more than 120 countries. Google will charge $10 per gigabyte of data used each month. In a departure from typical industry practice, Google said it would credit the accounts of customers who don’t use all their data in a given month.

The city recently gave Google the green light to expand its downtown offices, creating a three-building campus. Google plans to expand its local workforce from 400 to 1,500.

Wearable tech is staging a vanishing act. That's not to say that there you can't find any new products here at CES in Las Vegas.
In fact, the show floor is packed with me-too fitness tracking bracelets, cut-price touchscreen smart-watches and strap-on heart rate monitors.
But a select number of exhibitors is attempting to sell products that do not flag the fact the wearer is sporting a gadget.
