Google Earth Timelapse has grown since it debuted in 2013. It started off by giving us satellite windows into certain areas to see how they've progressed across roughly three decades. Since then, it has taken the entire world, made it zoomable and scrollable, and has given us an easy way to see it change year after year after year. But Timelapse has only been available to desktops for the past while up until today, when Google announced it was enabling the program on mobile web browsers. Timelapse relies on data from more than 15 million satellite images coming out of the U.S. Geological Survey, NASA Landsat, and the European Sentinel program from between 1984 and 2018. For each year, the data is processed through the Google Earth Engine into 35 high-resolution images to make a cloud-free collage of the world, which becomes one frame of a 35-frame video. Google then uses the Time Machine engine from Carnegie Mellon's CREATE Lab to make the video interactive, allowing users to zoom and … [Read more...] about Google Earth Timelapse invites mobile users to zoom through history

Zoom in on the waters off the coast of Edinburgh on Google Earth, and your eye may catch something strange. Is that a plane? Underwater? There does seem to be an airliner at the bottom of the sea off Scotland's coast. But this isn't the case of a mysterious plane crash cover-up. Rather, it's the result of Google's system of stitching together satellite imagery to create continuous cover of most of the globe. The ghost plane, which sits at the coordinates 55 degrees 57 minutes 26 seconds north latitude and 3 degrees 05 minutes 35 seconds west longitude, was first reported by the Mirror Online, which was alerted to the weird artifact by Robert Morton, a mechanical fitter from South Yorkshire, England. Morton told the tabloid that he was exploring Google Earth on Monday (Nov. 5) when he stumbled across the plane.

They're Google's attempt to define itself as a hardware manufacturer worthy of comparison not just to Apple's iPhone, but the very products its Android operating system has allowed to flourish over the past eight years. Or, as the refrain goes: Google is finally going to compete with other smartphone manufacturers. This narrative can get in the way of discussing the Pixel for what it … [Read more...] about Google Pixel review: A very good phone by Google
It led some in the community to believe the Pixel 3 leaks had been some kind of elaborate and enormously expensive hoax, or that Google had a secret third phone, a Pixel Ultra, that it was going to whip out and shock the world. But that didn't happen. We got exactly what had leaked. And the expectational debt, already huge, became bankrupting. Jokes of S-years, which have plagued Apple every other release, and more recently, Samsung, turned on Google. And even more so. Half an S. A C year. whatever. And hell hath no fury like a herd of nerds scorned. In the wake of Facebook's downward spiral following the Cambridge Analytica scandal and seemingly ever-escalating data breaches that have followed, Google has faced increased sensitivity and scrutiny over privacy as well. And it's faced its own share of scandals, including a now-cancelled plan to see facial recognition to the military for use in drones, a non-canceled plan to re-enter the Chinese search market, and an expose incident all … [Read more...] about Disappointed in Pixel 3?
