IMHO, the most exciting technology from Google is the Google car http://www.forbes.com/sites/chunkamui/2013/01/22/fasten-your-seatbelts-googles-driverless-car-is-worth-trillions/! Wasn't it there???

Google is creating technology but more significantly, they are accumulating data. People, places, things. The technology that they create enables them to accumulate more data. We go onto Google earth and say "ooh, cool, I should go visit Yosemite" and they way "ooh, cool, look at how many people are checking out Yosemite!" I'm curious what those google glasses are sending back for their data mining!

scrap the "the embedded video HTML5". It's annoying.

@DrQuine: Firefox and Chrome are both reliable here, under Windows and Linux. "Fast loading" is a different matter, but I generally load Firefox when I sit down and the machine, and just leave it running. If you are hopping in and out the way folks got accustomed to on Windows with IE, you're arguably doing it wrong. "Bloat" is relative. Given the steady advance of web standards, and the need to support things like HTML5, CSS3, and the embedded video HTML5 is making [possible, well, code size *will* grow. Tell me what you would drop to shrink the size and still have a usable browser.

"Perfect is the enemy of good" - let us not forget that continuous efforts and enhancements to improve software sometimes result in a loss of the benefits that it originally provided. When Chrome (and competitor FireFox) were scrappy upstarts, they were fast and reliable. Now they're bloated and buggy. Can we get back to a reliable fast loading Chrome browser?

Yay Google. http://bit.ly/IC4m9t


Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
