Apple, the biggest loser in the Google-Motorola-Lenovo deal | Mobile - CNET News Shara ... - 0 views

  •  
    by Shara Tibken - January 30, 2014 11:10 AM PST "Things are about to get tougher for Apple. Google late Wednesday made an unexpected announcement that it's selling Motorola Mobility to Chinese PC giant Lenovo for $2.91 billion, or less than a quarter of what it paid for the handset vendor just a couple of years ago. During the years Google owned it, Motorola lost money and market share, and the relationship caused tension between Google and the other Android vendors, particularly Samsung. It also led those other phone makers to develop their own software and services, rather than push those from Google. That amplified Android's fragmentation in the market. Overall, Google's purchase of Motorola turned out much better for iPhone maker Apple than for Google. That's now going to change. Google, sans Motorola, can go back to focusing on what it does best -- making a really great operating system and apps. It can mend its relationship with Android leader Samsung and the other vendors. And it can concentrate on unifying and streamlining the Android experience, rather than worry about bolstering its own hardware operations. All of those factors mean that Apple may not be able to win over customers as easily as it has in the past.

Gastkommentar zu Big Data: Die Erkenntnis von nichts - NZZ.ch Manfred Schneider 2013-12-30 - 1 views

  •  
    "... Big Data sind vor allem Massen von Informationen, die wie ein digitales Biotop Heerscharen von Propheten hervorbringen, deren Augen bereits in das Morgenrot einer neuen Menschheitsepoche vordringen. Was allerdings auffällt, wenn man sich ein wenig durch den wachsenden Bücher- und Artikelberg zum Thema arbeitet, ist, dass sich die Beispiele für neuartige und spektakuläre Big-Data-Analysen wiederholen. Ganz vorneweg läuft ein Artikel in der Zeitschrift «Nature» aus dem Jahr 2009, der über die Zusammenarbeit von staatlichen Epidemiologen und Google-Mitarbeitern berichtete, die zwischen 2003 und 2008 ein Verfahren zur möglichen Prävention von Grippe-Epidemien entwickelt haben. Sie korrelierten einschlägige Suchmaschinen-Nachfragen nach Grippe-Symptomen, Medikamenten, Antibiotika in bestimmten Regionen mit der Frequenz von Arztbesuchen und stellten damit ein prognostisches Modell für den Verlauf einer Epidemie auf. Zuvor wurden aus mehreren hundert Milliarden Google-Anfragen rund 50 Millionen ausgefiltert, deren Stichworte dem Grippe-Thema zugewiesen werden konnten. Jetzt erlauben es avancierte Rechenverfahren, die Entwicklung einer Seuche beinahe in Echtzeit zu verfolgen und dabei Vorbeugemassnahmen zu treffen. Das Beispiel ist schlagend, vor allem darum, weil es sich unmittelbar ins Reich des Menschheitsheils fügt. Wer will künftig seine Google-Anfragen noch unter Datenschutz stellen, wenn es doch - das oberste Pathosregister ist hier am Platze - um das Leben von Tausenden geht? Die übrigen Beispiele, die die Big-Data-Literatur zur Verfügung stellt, fallen eher in das Feld des smarten Kommerzes. Dass Jeff Bezos, der Gründer von Amazon, seine Bücher nicht von Kritikern anpreisen lässt, sondern den Kunden immer wieder Bücher empfiehlt, die sie eigentlich bereits gelesen haben, ist eine solche smarte Big-Data-Idee. Wer ein Buch über Hühner bestellt, bekommt kurz darauf eines über Hähne empfohlen. Im Prinzip geht es darum, Real-Time-Informa

Google's 'Babel fish' heralds future of translation | TechCentral, Ashish Venugopal / D... - 0 views

  •  
    "In Douglas Adams's famous Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series of science-fiction books, interstellar species use Babel fish - "small, yellow, leech-like" creatures that feed on "brain-wave energy" - to translate speech in real time. A team of developers at Google is working on the real thing, using statistical models to translate different languages, including Afrikaans, on the Web and on mobile phones, using voice input and output as well as text. TechCentral sat down with Google Translate research scientist Ashish Venugopal at Google's headquarters in Silicon Valley last week and asked him about the stumbling blocks to effective real-time translation and the future of the technology. This is an edited transcript of that interview. (...).Do you have a team of linguists working all over the world? We have a team of statisticians, all working right over there [points and laughs]. It's less linguistically orientated. There are linguistic ideas that influence our decisions. To give you an example, when I was working on the last set of Indian languages that were launched, I didn't use any linguistic knowledge; I used Wikipedia and my grandmother. So, it's Wikipedia, my grandmother and statistics. That's what we use to put a language together. - Duncan McLeod, TechCentral"

    La mia recenzione di questo "helpout sugli helpout": "Ronnie was very patient and gave very clear answers. As to whether people from other countries than Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, U.K., and the U.S. (see https://support.google.com/helpouts/answer/3164468?hl=en&ref_topic=14126 ) would be allowed to offer helpouts in future, he said this is planned. As to the difference between helpouts and hangouts, he explained that though helpouts are using the hangout platform, they are a different service. And when asked if helpout participants can use the live captioning app that can be used in hangouts (see https://hangout-captions.appspot.com/ ), he said no. When I asked why the "Introducing Helpouts by Google" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-VFC9AQM1k video is uncaptioned, and the video embedded in the "Find out what it's like to get a Helpout!" https://helpouts.google.com/111421743141645456280/ls/b41c1faef6b76d0f page is not only uncaptioned, but also uncaptionable via e.g. streaming it to amara.org, because if you try to open it on youtube, you get to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=picasacid , which says: "An error occurred during validation. This video does not exist. Sorry about that." he candidly said he couldn't answer and suggested using the feedback, which I'm doing. Same reply when I asked if Google planned to caption these videos. Sure, I would have preferred to get more hopeful answers to the questions about accessibility, but it was great to get candid ones, which can now be reported to the discussion lists of the Collaborative for Communication Access via Captioning - http://ccacaptioning.org/ . " No, è vero, Ronnie è stato bravissimo. Chissà quanti helpout si sarà sorbito quel giorno, e paffete arriva una che comincia a rompergli le scatole e il nuovo giocatolo Google, portandolo a riconoscere implicitamente che insomma, meglio gli hangout veri e propri..

Aggiornamento dei Termini di servizio - Norme e principi - Google - 2 views

    " Introduzione Termini di servizio Aggiornamenti 11 novembre 2013 Riepilogo delle modifiche Aggiornamento dei Termini di servizio 11 ottobre 2013 Stiamo aggiornando i Termini di servizio di Google. I nuovi Termini verranno pubblicati online il 11 novembre 2013 ed è possibile leggerli qui. Dato che molti utenti sono allergici ai testi legali, per comodità è disponibile un riepilogo in un linguaggio semplice. Abbiamo apportato tre cambiamenti: Primo, un chiarimento su come il nome e la foto del profilo potrebbero apparire nei prodotti Google (fra cui recensioni, pubblicità e in altri contesti commerciali). Puoi controllare come la tua foto e il tuo nome appaiono negli annunci mediante l'impostazione Convalide condivise. Secondo, un promemoria relativo all'utilizzo sicuro dei dispositivi mobili. Terzo, dettagli sull'importanza di mantenere riservata la password. Ecco qualche dettaglio aggiuntivo: ..."
  •  
    Bell'esempio di chiarezza comunicativa sull'uso fatto dei dati degli utenti e su come gli utenti possono gestirlo, con un annuncio che traduce in linguaggio per umani il legalese dei cambiamenti alle condizioni di servizio, e con un mese di anticipo. Può darsi che abbia incoraggiato questa chiarezza il desiderio di smontare una certa paranoia verso le reti sociali basate negli Stati Uniti e in particolare verso Google, suscitata dall'affare PRISM della NSA rivelata da Snowden quest'estate. PRISM è grave, però siamo noi a barattare o non la nostra privacy contro servizi che riteniamo utili, quindi la responsabilità è nostra, anche se siamo stati maleducati da software e servizi informatici di cui cmq devi accettare le condizioni per utilizzarli... E a prescindere delle motivazioni, questa chiarezza è positiva.
