Google agrees to buy part of HTC for $1.1 billion

On Thursday, Google announced it has signed a definitive agreement with Taiwanese Smartphone maker HTC, to bolster its hardware business.

Under the agreement, Google will acquire a team of HTC employees, many of whom have worked on its Pixel Smartphone who will join Google. In return to which HTC will receive US$1.1 Billion in cash. Also, Google will separately receive a non-exclusive license for HTC intellectual property.

The agreement is a testament to the decade, a long strategic relationship between HTC and Google around the development of premium Smartphone’s. The tie-up could further formalize Google’s ambition in the virtual mobile industry and at the same time rescue HTC’s drooping business. Also, the Google will continue to have access to HTC’s IP to support the Pixel Smartphone family.

Cher Wang the Chairwoman and CEO at HTC said, “This agreement is a brilliant next step in our longstanding partnership, enabling Google to supercharge their hardware business while ensuring continued innovation within our HTC Smartphone and VIVE virtual reality businesses.”

According to a blog post, “The second generation of products are set to be unveiled on 4th October .”

Google Senior Vice President of Hardware, Rick Osterloh wrote “That’s why we’ve signed an agreement with HTC, a leader in consumer electronics, which will fuel even more product innovation in the years ahead.”

Taiwan based HTC once had as much as 10  percent of the smartphones market, according to estimates from Counterpoint Research. But despite a cult following, HTC’s market share has fallen since the end of 2011 to less than 2 percent. According to IDC estimates, HTC makes the high-end Vive virtual reality system. It’s the third most popular headset in terms of shipments and market share.

Google has indicated that making its own hardware,  from home speakers to phones, will be a continued focus as the company tries to specialize its software for advanced artificial intelligence and virtual reality. Those types of features require powerful phones, and HTC could help Google in making them.

Google-Walmart teams up to give a jolt to Amazon dominance

World’s biggest tech giant, Google, and world’s largest retail group, Walmart, has now agreed to get together and are teaming up to challenge Amazon’s growing dominance in the online sector. Shoppers, at least for now, in the United States can able to choose from hundreds of thousands of Walmart products through the Google Express website, mobile app or voice-activated Google Home.

Walmart has also joined with major retailers which include Whole Foods Market, Costco, Bath & Beyond, and Bed that is a part of Google’s shopping and delivery service.

Executives from Walmart say the retailer will have more items available than any other on Google Express and offer a personalized version of the service by linking their Walmart account to Google Express. The service can then quickly locate the brand, size, and amount of a household good — from shampoo to toilet paper —that the customer previously bought, or make suggestions based on those past purchases.

Marc Lore, CEO of Walmart U.S. eCommerce, says this is the first time the company’s customers will be able to order on Google Home.

“I think this is really about trying to find an opportunity to simplify people’s lives and help them shop in a way that maybe they’d not yet imagined,” said Lore.

The Google-Walmart combination will surely to ramp up the rivalry against Amazon. Walmart is already in leverage its hundreds of stores to enable shoppers to pick up items they’ve bought online.

The pairing with Walmart also represents a shot across Amazon’s bow by Google, as more and more people bypass the search engine to start their browsing on the e-commerce site instead.

Internet Speed Sucks? Don’t Worry Google Is Trying To Make The Internet Run Fast On Really Slow Connections.

India’s Internet connectivity sucks! Do Youtube videos play without stuttering pauses for you? Aha!
But, don’t worry, Sundar Pichai’s Google has a plan to fix that.

Well, to be honest, Google’s trying to fix slow Internet speeds all over the globe by doing what it does best — finding an ingenious solution to supercharge the Internet traffic lanes.

Believe it or not, but the Internet’s close to 40 years old, and a lot of its underlying technology isn’t fully updated. One of which is the traffic congestion protocol, an algorithm that acts to minimize traffic jams on the Internet’s data highways. Most of it is ancient tech dating back to the 1980s, when the early Internet was just plain text. But the Internet is now dominated by multimedia content, and streaming all that video chokes up the Internet lanes and throws the old congestion protocol into a tailspin.

This is what Google’s trying to change fundamentally, with its new Bottleneck Bandwidth and Round-trip propagation time algorithm, or just BBR for short.

But unlike some of Google’s previous efforts, it wants to standardize BBR so that companies that run the Internet’s backbone can adopt it so that everyone benefits from the speedier data transfer rates.

In the past, Google had applied a version of BBR to speed up Youtube videos between 4% to 14% worldwide — which is a huge gain in terms of video transfer speeds. It’s also developed the QUIC protocol (adopted by major Internet companies) to speed up video speeds worldwide, and has supercharged its Chrome browser (through new algorithms) to fetch data from the Internet faster than other browsers.

Google will soon release the BBR algorithm so that any developer could incorporate its learnings and develop speed-efficient services. But the search giant’s ultimate plan is to incorporate BBR technology at the TCP level of Internet.

This Guy Just Wrote His Resume With Google Auto-Complete, And Its So Good That He Deserve The Job

Let’s be honest, nobody likes writing resumes. They’re boring, they’re time-consuming, and they’re often a complete waste of time. But one guy came up with a brilliant way to save all the hassle of writing his CV. How? He used Google autocomplete instead! And although we’re not sure whether he’ll ever get a job with it, he definitely succeeded in making us laugh, because as you can see below, his resume is nothing short of hilarious.

“I needed to update my CV so I did it all through Google autocomplete and soon I will have every job,” tweeted Aaron Gillies, a London-based author who also maintains a well-known funny Twitter account called TechnicallyRon. But given that his resume states that he identifies as a wolf, that he was born to love you, and that he is trained in gorilla warfare and can prove it mathematically, he better hope that he finds an employer with a serious sense of humour!

“I am trained in gorilla warfare and I can prove it mathematically”

Employers might not be impressed, but the internet thought it was brilliant

Some people even tried it themselves with equally funny consequences:

Google Is Celebrating Women’s World Cup With An Interactive Cricket Doodle.

For the fans who are still devastated by the loss of India in the ICC Championship Trophy that concluded on June 18, it is important to know that the game is not over yet. Indian team is playing yet again the Cricket World Cup in England against the host country. But it’s not the men who are chasing the ball in the field but women.

Google paid tribute to the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 on its opening day on Saturday, and also reminded the cricket fans about the game with the live doodle. Have you tried it yet? It allows you to do the batting by yourself.

The tournament going on from 24 June till 23 July 2017 and is being hosted by England.

Looking back at the brief history of the Women ICC Championship, it was first played in 1973 — two years before the first men’s edition. India made its debut in the Championship in 1978, the time it hosted the event for the first time. It has now come a long way and this year, ICC is marking the 11th edition of Women’s World Cup.

The qualified teams playing in the tournament are Australia, England. India, Pakistan, New Zealand, South Africa, West Indies, Sri Lanka.

Google, Facebook Joins Hands To Fight Against Terrorism

The increase terrorism attack in the recent months has drawn much of the attention by the entire world and the need to take appropriate steps is still remain a challenging task. While politics and the diplomacy forced the political leaders to take any concrete steps, the internet giants like the Facebook, Google and the YouTube has united to give back the terrorism.

In a fight against the terrorism, Google has introduced new measures to tackle the spread of terrorist material online, saying that threat has a serious challenge and that more immediate action should be taken.

Google has pledged for the better detection of extremist content and faster review, more experts, tougher standards and an expansion of counter-radicalisation work.

Kent Walker, a senior vice-president and general counsel at Google, said in a blogpost: “Terrorism is an attack on open societies, and addressing the threat posed by violence and hate is a critical challenge for us all.

“Google and YouTube are committed to being part of the solution. We are working with government, law enforcement and civil society groups to tackle the problem of violent extremism online. There should be no place for terrorist content on our services.

“While we and others have worked for years to identify and remove content that violates our policies, the uncomfortable truth is that we, as an industry, must acknowledge that more needs to be done.”

Google had developed a technology which will prevent re-uploads of known terrorist content, using image-matching techniques.

Again, to counter terrorism activity, Google is planning to increase the number of independent expers in YouTube’s Trusted Flagger programme, and will expand its work against counter-extremism groups to identify content that may be being used to radicalise.

It will take a tougher stance on videos that contain inflammatory religious or supremacist content.

Walker said: “Collectively, these changes will make a difference. And we’ll keep working on the problem until we get the balance right. We are committed to playing our part.”

Labour’s Yvette Cooper, chair of the Commons home affairs select committee, welcomed the pledges. “This is a very welcome step forward from Google after the [committee] called on them to take more responsibility for searching for illegal content,” she said.

“The select committee recommended that they should be more proactive in searching for and taking down illegal and extremist content, and to invest more of their profits in moderation.

“News that Google will now proactively scan content and fund the trusted flaggers who were helping to moderate their own site is therefore important and welcome, though there is still more to do.”

Google Gives Gift In Ramadan : Launches An App To Give Direction To Pray

This Ramadan, the search giant Google has a gift for their Muslims users. The search giant is making it easier to search for Qibla- the direction in which Muslims turn to pray by simply launching a Qibla Finder app. Equipped with augmented reality, the app helps the user in the direction towards the Kaaba- holy shrine located at Al-Masjid-al-Haram, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

The Qibla Finder app uses the phone’s camera and location settings to show a clear blue line directing towards Qibla. Google uses the GPS locations of the shrine and a digital compass to give the direction in form of a blue painted line running towards the direction of Kaaba.

“When people search for the Qibla-the direction Muslims turn to at prayer they often look for a website or an app to point them in the right direction. Which explains why the word “compass” often pops up when we look at Qibla-related search results over the past five years,” reads Google’s blog post. The Qibla Finder is accessible through the browser and is available across all devices except iOS.

Using the Qibla Finder App is really easy and simple. To start getting the direction, download the app from here and launch the app. Now move your phone’s camera until the symbol of Kaaba is seen.

“Every Ramadan, we notice a spike in searches for websites and apps that help point people to the right direction to face the Kaaba. Last year, we realised that many were using apps that still look like a compass and that don’t function well,” Najeeb Jarrar, Google’s product marketing manager in the Middle East and North Africa, told Step feed.

Google launches camera with high intelligence

In the present globalized world, we are living in the era of advanced technology. Every part of our daily life is related to technology in one or other way.

The technological growth is taking place in the world at a very rapid pace.

Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai announced on Thursday, that Google has come out with a new feature, which will assist the user and analyze when a smartphone is pointed at anything and with that it will provide relevant details of that same thing.

Earlier whenever we want to  know about something, we just type it on google.But now it will be history.

If you point it at a flower, and Google will identify the type. If you point it at a concert poster, Assistant will suggest buying tickets, watching a song on YouTube, searching for the artist. Point it at a restaurant and you’ll instantly see reviews. You get the idea.
