"Search-engine-the-merciless' latest scheme to usurp Amazon"
 LOL, +Stephen Glasskeys 
In the past, Google has tried -- and failed -- multiple times to replace Amazon as choice destination for online shopping. Yesterday -- the day before Google I/O -- an executive burdened with secrets....

Microsoft straits: Office for nothing -- Android apps are free

Microsoft really likes it when people use Office. So much so, it recently inked deals with dozens of OEMs so fresh copies of Microsoft Office...

I really like my newest M9, by HTC, but can't stand that I can't remove bloat. However, I think you will find this trend reaching all smart devices from the iWatch app on IOS to Samsung's gazillion trinkets on their phones. I am just surprised Cynogenmod took the bait. They will keep consumers moderately  on the port as long as they still allow removal I would guess.

IDrive would be my vote. Local backup and personal cloud backup all rolled into one.

Google to unleash self-driving car on public streets this summer

see, that's the shift we will all have to make: the car should be  about transport only. All the stuff that was told to us by those who want to sell cars, is self serving crap. The car isn't about status, oneupmanship, recapturing youth, picking up a potential lay, etc. I'm not even sure we should own the car.

Heather won that one, and without resorting to calling up Marshal Mathers. I find ASMR to be a bit creepy. I suppose my brain is wired differently.

It is comical and bordering on idiotic how some commenters in the articles bundled call Office "crapware".

That "crapware" my friends, is the thing enterprise runs on, your salaries are calculated on, the official correspondence is written on. It's the thing most people who work, know how to use.  Office, is the serious stuff.

If you are talking business, you are talking Microsoft stuff. If you want selfies and apps that say "yo", you are in different watters.

Apple maps has been quietly improving. I have had no issues with it. I find I'm using it more since it is of course tightly integrated with iOS.

Wow. The weirdest of spam discovered in my traps...
There is a crater on the dark side of the MOON named after the man who headed the USA branch of ALEISTER CROWLEY'S Ordo Templi Orientis satanic network.  Jack Parsons was a rocket engineer at Jet Propulsion Labs, his best friend was L. Ron Hubbard.  Parsons swore he was the Djall - the Islamic Anti-Christ… Together, Parsons and Hubbard summoned demons in the desert using ancient Hebrew magic.  They ripped a hole in Space-Time and something evil flew in…  Parsons worked on PROJECT PAPERCLIP helping former SS NAZI officers to get plush homes at the American tax-payers' expense…  After working for Jet Propulsion Labs, Parsons was hired by ISRAEL to design a Super-Bomb far more destructive than the Atom Bomb created by Edward Teller…  In an occult ritual, Parsons baptized himself as the Jewish Anti-Christ and planned to destroy the world…

#Microsoft plans bunches of #Windows10 (it must somehow form a family)

ah the Blue-screen Bunch TV show of old - haha :0

Seriously I thought they wanted to avoid all the various flavours like pleb, basic, wanabe, advanced, ultra and then media centre as add on.

Though media centre no more, still I smell the free windows 7+ is onto a basic flavour and then they charge an upgrade fee for the steps.

I smell a trap.
