It's a question that occurs to many of us: if digital security is such a minefield, how do you keep your personal data safe?
One person who knows about the risks is Adam Langley. As a security engineer at Google, he makes key decisions about how your data is spread around the internet. He also has access to systems that would have hackers salivating.
So how does Adam make sure he's not taken for a ride? Not how you'd think. Speaking at a conference at CloudFlare headquarters in San Francisco, he outlined his strategy.
In announcing Android Wear for iOS on Monday, Google noted users can track steps, calories and other biometric readings in-app, but failed to confirm HealthKit compatibility. It has since been learned that Google chose not to integrate with Apple's platform, instead opting for its own Google Fit service.
Representatives from Apple and Google told BuzzFeed News that Android Wear does not offer access to the HealthKit framework, meaning wearables running the operating system must use Google's competing Google Fit system to log fitness and health measurements.
Google has a new logo. A few weeks after the company announced a huge restructuring effort that will split the search, advertising and internet giant into several different organizations, the new Google is showing off a new identity.
Anmol Tukrel, a 16-year-old Indian-origin Canadian citizen, has designed a personalised search engine which he claims is 47 percent more accurate than Google.
The young student designed the search engine as part of a high school project and also to submit to the Google Science Fair, pressexaminer.com reported.
Tukrel came across the idea of a personalised search engine during an internship stint in India at Bengaluru-based adtech firm IceCream Labs. He planned to take it Google's personalised search engine idea to the next level.
Although Google has been dropping some very heavy hints lately, we didn’t know exactly what sweet treat the next version of its Android operating system would be named after.
Well, if you were hoping to place a bet on "M&Ms" (or go for a truly outside flutter on "Maltodextrin"), you’re too late I’m afraid, and also lucky as you’d have lost your stake. M, Google says, is for Marshmallow.
