Google unveils tools that track and secure your online life

Google unveils tools that track and secure your online life

Used to be identity theft only revolved around cards and social security numbers, but these days our virtual identities are just as important and even more vulnerable. With the enermous power that it wields over our Internet lives, Google is in the prime position to help mitigate the effects or sometimes even prevent incidents from happening in the first place. That is why it is releasing two new security tools that will let users check up on their online activity and, if necessary, batten down the hatches.

Google app says “Hodor”, and that’s it

Google app says “Hodor”, and that’s it

Starting tomorrow you'll find the Google app - the search portion of it, that is - saying "Hodor" whenever you also say "Hodor." This is a reference to the character Hodor in the Game of Thrones story and TV show. This feature will be summoned to life starting on the 12th of November, 2014 at 1PM Eastern Time. Whether or not this means anything else for the Game of Thrones release schedule is not known - HBO and Google won't confirm anything directly, that is to say.

2016 Jaguar F-TYPE R gets AWD to go jet baiting

2016 Jaguar F-TYPE R gets AWD to go jet baiting

Jaguar is adding all-wheel drive to its 2016 F-TYPE R Coupé, part of a range-boosting move that will see variations on the popular model double to twelve. Set to debut officially - along with the rest of the new lineup - at the LA Auto Show later this month, the new F-TYPE R will be good for 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, Jaguar says, and then romp on to a top speed electronically-limited to 186 mph. The big news, though, is the extra traction, which Jaguar tested by taking the new coupé to the Hakskeen Pan in South Africa and pointing it at a jet.

Google Q3 2014 Earnings hit and a miss

Google Q3 2014 Earnings hit and a miss

This afternoon Google announced their financial Q3 2014 earnings, this just a short while after Apple held their 2014 iPad event. Generally Apple’s events squash every other kind of technology news released during the day, but Google’s earnings - especially ones that turn their stock into a rock - should be strong enough to break on through. What we’re seeing today is Google’s CFO Patrick Pichette announce that they’re excited about the growth in our advertising and emerging businesses."

CBS All Access streams against HBO/Netflix with commercials

CBS All Access streams against HBO/Netflix with commercials

Just in case you heard that CBS was going to sneak up on Netflix and yesterday’s big reveal of HBO’s streaming service, think again. CBS All Access, as they’re calling it, has quite a few caveats to get over before it’ll be sneaking up on any competing service. First, and perhaps most important, they’ll be continuing to show commercials during your viewing of shows even after you’ve paid for their service. Advertisements on your already paid-for service. What is this, Hulu Plus?!

This ultra-fast Internet may beat Google Fiber to your home

This ultra-fast Internet may beat Google Fiber to your home

Google Fiber offers mind-boggling data transfer speeds, but fiber optics require a massive build-out. That need for digging keeps Fiber from rolling out quickly, and gives the competition a chance to catch up where Fiber hasn’t made its presence known. That Gigabit speed via Fiber and other services is impressive, but also a bit of overkill. New wireless tech from Mimosa brings us all back to Earth a bit, but still delivers on impressive data speeds you’re likely not currently getting.

Netflix stock plummets as HBO enters streaming race

Netflix stock plummets as HBO enters streaming race

This morning it was announced by HBO that they’d be offering up their own streaming service separate from Cable TV. That means Game of Thrones. It also means Girls, Boardwalk Empire, Veep, and a collection of AAA movies like Rush, Les Miserbles, and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It also means that Netflix will have its first real competition since it went streaming itself all the way back in 2007.

Here’s why non-cable HBO may not be so great

Here’s why non-cable HBO may not be so great

For some, the point of cable is having HBO. Where else are you going to (legally) get Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire? If you’re a cord cutter, or at least want to be, we’ve got good news. HBO is planning to offer a subscription service in 2015 that doesn’t require a cable subscription. That might sound dandy, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. We know it’s web-based, and launchings sometime in 2015 — but that’s about it.

HERE Maps hands-on: Google & Apple should be worried

HERE Maps hands-on: Google & Apple should be worried

For a long time, Nokia HERE Maps has been Windows Phone's secret ace card. The quiet star of Lumia - and perhaps the most interesting part of Nokia now that Microsoft has its phone division - the app's free offline navigation and comprehensive traffic data service has made it a hit among users. Now liberated from its Windows Phone blinkers, though, the HERE team has spread its sights to include Android and iOS, slipping us a beta version of the app for Samsung's Galaxy smartphones to try out ahead of the full release.
