You Can Wash Google and Levi’s New Smart Jacket as Much as You Need

Rolling out a new product, especially one that takes proof of an entirely new concept to the masses, is never going to be without its hiccups — and that’s a lesson John McCarthy has been learning over the past week. McCarthy is the head of product for Google’s Jacquard initiative, which introduced a much-touted $ 350 smart jacket with Levi’s in late September, and he’s heard one piece of feedback over and over since the launch: a complaint that you can’t wash the jacket too many times before it goes off kilter. (The care guidelines posted on Jacquard’s official site read: “the jacket is designed to withstand up to 10 washes … but your experience may vary by usage and wash conditions.”)

These Are The Exact Debate Moments When Candidates Got The Most Attention On Google

During Thursday night’s primary debate of the top 10 Republican candidates, Google tracked searches for each person on the stage. Not surprisingly, businessman Donald Trump was the most-searched candidate, followed by neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.).

Searches for each candidate ebbed and flowed throughout the debate, generally increasing when the candidate was speaking. Now, thanks to Google, we know what the candidates were saying when the greatest number of people were searching their names. 

Searches for Trump had several major spikes, four of which corresponded to specific statements he made. The largest jump occurred during his closing statement — most candidates saw an increase in searches during their final remarks — and during his response to moderator Chris Wallace’s question about his past business bankruptcies. Trump claimed he had never gone bankrupt, then clarified that he had “taken advantage of the [bankruptcy] laws of this country” in four business deals in the past. Perhaps viewers were fact-checking him.

Carson’s largest spike seems to have come when he stated that “there is no such thing as a politically correct war.” He was briefly interrupted by applause from the crowd at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena before he continued, praising the intellect of military leaders and saying they could carry out any mission a commander in chief gives them “if we don’t tie their hands behind their back.”

Cruz’s most-Googled moment was during his opening statement. He was the third-most searched candidate, but didn’t have as many ups and downs as the other top-searched candidates. His immigration and foreign policy comments got some attention, but not as much as his opening remarks.

Bush, on the other hand, saw several spikes in Google searches — some not necessarily related to anything he said. The first occurred when he attempted to make his habit of vetoing budget line items as governor of Florida into a Godfather joke. Another was when he referred to the Iraq invasion, led by his brother then-President George W. Bush in 2003, as a mistake. And later, Bush denied a report that he had called Trump a “clown” and a “buffoon,” but did grab attention by saying Trump’s language is divisive. 

Rounding out the top five in Google search traffic, Rubio first caught attention defending his relative youth and inexperience by saying the election “cannot be a resume competition.” If it is, he warned, “Hillary Clinton’s gonna be the next president.” Rubio also gained attention for his statements on immigration and education, but his largest spike was when he called for lowering the tax rate for all small businesses to 25 percent, limiting regulations and repealing Obamacare all in one breath.

Google Celebrates Ida B. Wells On Her 153rd Birthday [PHOTO]

After getting the side-eye for Google Maps being so racist, Google is ready to be forgiven. The search engine put Ida B. Wells on the main page in honor of the celebrated activist and journalist’s 153rd birthday.

Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 8.48.02 AM

 

From Google:

Ida B. Wells was a voracious reader, and had devoured the entirety of Shakespeare and Dickens before she turned twenty. A gifted writer and orator, she was unabashedly candid–in her diaries, she describes the heroine of Les Miserables as “sweet, lovely and all that, but utterly without depth… fit only for love, sunshine [and] flowers.”

Such sweetness was simply not her style. Fearless and uncompromising, she was a fierce opponent of segregation and wrote prolifically on the civil injustices that beleaguered her world. By twenty-five she was editor of the Memphis-based Free Speech and Headlight, and continued to publicly decry inequality even after her printing press was destroyed by a mob of locals who opposed her message.

In 1894, while living in Chicago, she became a paid correspondent for the broadly distributed Daily Inter Ocean, and in 1895 she assumed full control of the Chicago Conservator. As Matt Cruickshank illustrates in today’s Doodle, Wells also travelled and lectured widely, bringing her fiery and impassioned rhetoric all over the world.

Today, for her 153rd birthday, we salute Ida B. Wells with a Doodle that commemorates her journalistic mettle and her unequivocal commitment to the advancement of civil liberties.

Wells was born a slave in Mississippi in 1862 and is among the earliest activists to lead, what we now know as Civil Rights movement. She died in 1931 at age 68.

Google Finally Takes A Stand Against Revenge Porn

Google wants to help victims of revenge porn.

Amit Singhal, senior vice president of Google Search, announced in a blog post Friday that the company will soon honor requests from victims to remove nude or sexually explicit images from the search engine.

“Revenge porn” refers to sensitive content distributed without an individual’s permission. It’s become a massive problem in recent years: Kevin Bollaert, a San Diego man who extorted money from victims to remove such images from his website, was recently sentenced to 18 years in prison; and celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence fell victim to a major hacking last year that left their private photos exposed.

The new decision from Google is in some ways contrary to the company’s mission to put the entire Web at a user’s fingertips. Singhal acknowledges that in his post:

[R]evenge porn images are intensely personal and emotionally damaging, and serve only to degrade the victims — predominantly women. … This is a narrow and limited policy, similar to how we treat removal requests for other highly sensitive personal information, such as bank account numbers and signatures, that may surface in our search results.

Google plans to release a Web form for individuals to submit requests for the removal of revenge porn. It is not available yet, and a representative for Google did not immediately respond to a request for more information.

Of course, this is not a perfect solution. While Google can remove the results from search, it doesn’t have the ability to scrub content from websites. But it’s a big step toward making sure revenge content goes unseen.

HBO Now Is Coming To Google Play And Chromecast

LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – HBO Now, the premium cable programmer’s standalone streaming service, will be available this summer in the Google Play store for a range of Android devices including Chromecast.

The service — previously available only through Apple TV and Cablevision Systems — will be coming to Google devices in the near future, said Google senior VP Sundar Pichai, who made the announcement at the Google I/O developers conference Thursday in San Francisco. In addition, he said the company will bring HBO Now and HBO Go to the Android TV connected-television platform.

HBO Now, which is priced at $ 15 per month and doesn’t require a pay-TV subscription, will come to Android this summer, according to the cable net. That will include support to cast the service to Android and Apple iOS devices, as well as web browsers on desktops and laptop computers.

“We’re looking forward to expanding our relationship with Google through HBO Now,” Bernadette Aulestia, executive VP of domestic network distribution for HBO, said in a statement. “We have seen through social media that there is great demand for the service among Android and Chromecast users, and we’re excited to deliver HBO Now to them.”

HBO Now offers access to more than 2,000 of the network’s original titles and specials, including every episode of “Game of Thrones” (pictured above), “True Detective,” “Girls,” “Veep,” “True Blood” and “Sex and the City.” HBO Go, its authenticated service for consumers who subscribe through a pay-TV service, provides the very same content.

HBO’s push into the over-the-top space — notwithstanding Cablevision’s participation — has ruffled feathers at big cable and satellite TV providers. That’s because they stand to lose TV subscribers if people opt to pay for HBO Now on an a-la-carte basis. But the Time Warner-owned programmer sees the need to forge ahead on OTT as it faces growing competition from Netflix as a value-added video service.

Google buys music streaming service Songza

A Google logo is seen at the garage where the company was founded on Google's 15th anniversary in Menlo Park, CaliforniaBy Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Google Inc has acquired streaming music service Songza, the Internet search company's latest move to play a bigger role in the fast-growing online music business. Google said on Tuesday it would explore ways to incorporate aspects of Songza into its existing streaming music service over the coming months. For now the four-year-old Songza service, which creates "expert-curated" music playlists intended to match users' activities and tastes, will remain unchanged for existing users. Google did not provide financial terms of the deal, though a report in the New York Post earlier this month citing unnamed sources said Google had offered to buy the company for $ 15 million.
