Microsoft Picturesque Android lock screen hawks Bing

Microsoft wants a place on your Android smartphone, and it seems to figure one of the best ways to get there -- and be seen multiple times every day -- is by targeting the lock screen.

Here’s an interesting question the folks at Google probably asked themselves not too long ago: how do you pair a human passenger with a driverless car? Aside form looping routes, much like public transportation, the automated car and its human riders have no real way to interact with one another. A new rumor suggests Google is preparing an app, much like Uber, which will likely find a home with their driverless car fleet. Of special interest here is that Google is an Uber investor.
