What's new at Google?
At its 2015 I/O keynote, Google focused mostly on optimizing Android — but that's actually a pretty big project. A lot of the updates involved reducing friction: there were updates to Android...

Amazing that with standard Canon lenses, they could produce a telescope which is superior in capturing faint light to traditional telescopes. Good example of Out-of-the-box thinking.
The Dragonfly Telephoto Array, a robotic imaging system optimised for the detection of extended ultra-low surface brightness structures. The array consists of Canon 400mm f/2.8 L IS II USM telephoto lenses coupled to science-grade SBIG STF-8300M CCD cameras, all carried by a Paramount ME-II ...

After 1.7 million miles we’ve learned a lot — not just about our system but how humans drive, too.

Interesting and I would agree with some of them. It is up to our young entrepreneurs to make it happen. Disrupt!
 
With many healthcare trends.
Baked into the venture capital model is an assumption that any individual venture capitalist is going to be wrong way more than he or she is going to be right.  But if you get five of them together, with a couple hundred spectators as a crowdsourced backstop, you can come [...]

Surprise to me!
Both Google and Uber lose, though to different degrees. But, Uber loses more. The biggest winners are traditional automakers, Uber’s competitors and, hopefully, society at large.

I don't see big problems.  Europe is opening up for the concept of driverless cars in an effort to help the European car industry in defending itself against Google and the likes.  Also the minds are evolving as I see more and more articles describing driverless cars as improving the safety since most accidents come from human mistakes.
Insure will not be problem at all, as these driverless cars will register everything that happened leading to the accident in great detail.   Google themselves could even become an insurance company, being another component in the ecosystem of the new mobility.

Interesting reflections on wearables and how they can change our way of interacting with smart devices.
Mike Elgan originally shared to Technology:
 
The Apple Watch and our cyborg future.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/SD1eeq )

My first week of wearing the Apple Watch has transformed my thinking about the direction of mobile and wearable computing.

It has become clear to me that we're all becoming cyborgs. A cyborg is a person whose normal human abilities are enhanced or magnified by technology. This is different from a person who uses technology as a tool.

While becoming a cyborg sounds unappealing, it's actually going to boost health, happiness and prosperity.

Android fans, Apple-haters and techno-skeptics: Stay with me here. This column is not about how great Apple is. It's about the cultural journey we're all on together.

In my week of wearing the Apple Watch, I have experienced three epiphanies about what the wearable revolution has in store for all of us. Here's what I've realized:

If you ask to HCPs, it's the first source that comes to their minds when needing medical information.
