Guy charging money for a magic "performance improvement" to Android which seeds the kernel PRNG for no reason (it's barely used by Android), claiming that lack of entropy is the cause of all lag on Android.

(sigh)

Definitely a nice vision of what Google Now might do in the future.
 
How I imagine Google Now in the future. These are just mockups. What cards would you like to see in the future?

Announcing Blink, a rendering engine for Chromium: blog.chromium.org/2013/04/blink-rendering-engine-for-chromium.html

The mission of Blink is to improve the open web through technical innovation and good citizenship. We've set strong guidelines ( chromium.org/blink#new-features ) for new features that emphasize standards, interoperability, conformance testing and transparency.  Having multiple rendering engine options increases innovation on the web, and will help ensure that the open, compatible web is a platform as capable as any other. 

You can learn more at our project page: chromium.org/blink 
We've also tried to answer your questions in our developer FAQ: chromium.org/blink/developer-faq

We'll also be hosting a video Q&A session with the Blink engineering leads here on G+ tomorrow. If you have unanswered questions: please ask them in this Google Moderator: http://goo.gl/Uu0qV

Bob is awesome.

As it turns out, Bob had simply outsourced his own job to a Chinese consulting firm. Bob spent less that one fifth of his six-figure salary for a Chinese firm to do his job for him. Authentication was no problem, he physically FedExed his RSA token to China so that the third-party contractor could log-in under his credentials during the workday. It would appear that he was working an average 9 to 5 work day.

The best part? Investigators had the opportunity to read through his performance reviews while working alongside HR. For the last several years in a row he received excellent remarks. His code was clean, well written, and submitted in a timely fashion. Quarter after quarter, his performance review noted him as the best developer in the building.

Puahahahaha.

Colbert at Google. (Watch the whole thing if you have time. But the best part starts at 2:26.)

I'm no statistician, but I feel like something about this just doesn't add up…
