Google news, apps, features, and easter eggs. Everything related to Google (the company and its products)

En tant que professionnel dans l'enseignement, j'aimerais en parler. les différentes méthodes pédagogiques mènent toutes au même objectif, reste la volonté de l'enseignant en premier lieu et celle de l'apprenant. Il faut donc étudier la manière d'implanter cette volonté.

"Google confirmed on Friday that it had completed the acquisition of Boston Dynamics, an engineering company that has designed mobile research robots for the Pentagon. The company, based in Waltham, Mass., has gained an international reputation for machines that walk with an uncanny sense of balance and even — cheetahlike — run faster than the fastest humans." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

Use Google Now To Automate Virtually Anything With The Help Of Tasker, Autovoice, And Xposed | Androidheadlines.com
Any of you out there that happen to be fans of Tasker and all its powers of Automation, prepare to have your minds blown. Thanks to a great little combo of apps that consists of Google Now, Tasker, Xposed Framework, and Autovoice, you can pretty much automate anything you want. Before you go and get all excited however, those of you that like the sound of this but aren’t to sure what these apps are, know that you absolutely NEED to have your phone rooted to do any of this. That being said, the capability to do the things you can with this setup is just awesome. The possibilities can be pretty much limitless, and while this setup is still in the early stages of life, given some time and well polished hard work you can imagine what could be possible. Let’s start you off with the first video as a demo since its fairly short and gives you an idea of what this means. BEHOLD! - Eric Logan from Bookmarklet

Google’s Road Map to Global Domination - NYTimes.com
The Internet land grab, which can be reduced to three key battles over three key conceptual territories. What came first, conquered by Google’s superior search algorithms. Who was next, and Facebook was the victor. But where, arguably the biggest prize of all, has yet to be completely won. Where-type questions — the kind that result in a little map popping up on the search-results page — account for some 20 percent of all Google queries done from the desktop. But ultimately more important by far is location-awareness, the sort of geographical information that our phones and other mobile devices already require in order to function. In the future, such location-awareness will be built into more than just phones. All of our stuff will know where it is — and that awareness will imbue the real world with some of the power of the virtual. Your house keys will tell you that they’re still on your desk at work. Your tools will remind you that they were lent to a friend. And your car will be able to drive itself on an errand to retrieve both your keys and your tools. - Eric Logan from Bookmarklet

Trying Google Glass doesn't feel like you're demoing a product. It feels like your enlisting in a revolution. More than a symbol of status, it's an indication that you know where the world is going. Google Glass is essentially just a smartphone that you wear. It look like a pair of glasses when you put it on, and the screen sits in the top right corner of your right eye. My plan was relatively simple: I was to go the Glass headquarters in New York City (Google people call it "Basecamp") to spend a few hours getting acquainted with Google Glass and, more importantly, learn how it can help all of us play better golf. x - Eric Logan from Bookmarklet

Students raise a Google Glass to good health | news @ Northeastern
Stephen Intille and Rupal Patel, asso­ciate pro­fes­sors in the Northeastern’s per­sonal health infor­matics pro­gram who each have joint appoint­ments in the Bouvé Col­lege of Health Sci­ences and the Col­lege of Com­puter and Infor­ma­tion Sci­ence, co- taught the class—among the first of its kind in the U.S. The class—“Health Inno­va­tion with Google Glass”—com­prised under­grad­uate, master’s, and doc­toral stu­dents across four col­leges, all of whom worked together to solve a spe­cific health­care need with the new technology. Regina Ranstrom, CIS’14, an under­grad whose inter­ests include health sci­ences and mobile tech­nology devel­op­ment, said the class allowed her to apply this knowl­edge to an truly inno­v­a­tive project, while also honing her own skills. “Google Glass is one of the newest mobile devices out there,” said Ranstrom, who was excited to get a closer, hands- on look throughout the semester. The lens- free “glasses” include a min­i­malist frame, one side of... more... - Eric Logan from Bookmarklet

Hangouts MMS support broken for many users, Google silent on the issue | MobileSyrup.com
So, anyone else having issues with Google Hangouts not delivering MMS messages to their phones when using it as your primary messaging app? - JA Castillo from Bookmarklet
I've been able to send and receive photos with no issues. Could be your provider. Try rolling back a version and reupdating. Or try installing a separate text app. I've heard hello text is ok. Pretty simple app. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
From the Google Support forums, it's an issue that can be found on multiple providers. My default messaging app works fine, so I am using that for now. The benefit of the Hangout integration is that I can have both my SMS/MMS messages and GTalk/Hangout messages in one location. But if MMS messages cannot be received, it's a non-starter for me. - JA Castillo
