Frontback app shuts down, front-facing cameras weep

Frontback app shuts down, front-facing cameras weep

The app Frontback is announced to be winding down after two years in service. This app started with an idea, an idea that if you were taking a back-facing photo, you should also be taking a front-facing photo at the same time. Therein you'd have a product that captured not only what you were seeing, but yourself in that environment as well. Today that dream is over - in a social networking sort of sense, at least. Today the Frontback community closes its doors.

Google+ Photos is over: export while you can

Google+ Photos is over: export while you can

This afternoon Google made the official move to shut down Google+ Photos once and for all. This move comes soon after the opening of the doors to Google Photos+, effectively moving the addition sign from one place to the other in the name, but making a relatively big move of their Photos business in the process. For people still using Google+ Photos with the social network, there's a period of time where you'll be able to switch over the photos and videos you've got stored with the service to the new environment. Google has not yet set a deadline for movement.

Inside Google Photos: A super-smart cloud for your memories

Google Photos isn’t the first cloud photo storage service, or the first media management platform, but first impressions suggest Google has raised the stakes with its smart new system.

In a win for the lazy, Google makes food delivery even simpler

In a win for the lazy, Google makes food delivery even simpler

The best thing about delivery is that it's practically instant. I'm not sure if American's are getting busier or lazier, but the market for food delivery has really grown over the past few years. It used to be that you'd have to keep a Pizza Hut magnet on your fridge to remember their phone number. Back in the day, you'd need to keep a drawer full of take-out menus just to remember what local delivery options exist. Nowadays, there aren't many hurdles to ordering a pizza before, but Google's newest search feature plans to make it even simpler.

Google now lets you download your Search history (for some reason)

Google now lets you download your Search history (for some reason)

We’re waring you: this will get messy. There’s a new feature for Google Search, and it’s not one that will end well for you or anyone else. You’ll feel embarrassed, no matter what the results — that much we promise. While you could already view your search history (bad enough), Google now makes it possible to download your search history. Don’t ask us why; we’re confused, too. Do I really want to download my search history? Do you? Likely not, but it does have some use-cases.

Google Moderator to close down in July

Google will be shutting down its Moderator service forever this summer, the Internet giant has announced. The closure will take place in three parts, with the first part having kicked off on March 30 -- that was when you could start exporting your data using Google Takeout, something that now makes sense in light of the newest announcement: Moderator will close to new questions and similar actions on June 30, and will be gone forever a month later on July 31.
