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

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
