Facebook secretly launched a mobile app in China

  Facebook secretly launched a mobile app in China Facebook has largely been shut out of China since 2009, but that isn't stopping it from getting involved in the country albeit in very roundabout ways. In a statement to the Times, Facebook doesn't explicitly confirm or deny its involvement in Colorful Balloons. "We have long said that we are interested in China, and are spending time understanding and learning more about the country in different ways," a spokesperson says. However, the executive director of the purported developer, Zhang Jingmei, has attended at least one crucial meeting between Facebook and Chinese officials -- there's a real chance that she's a Facebook adviser or employee.

Earlier this week, Google fired one of its engineers, James Damore, after he wrote a 10-page memo criticizing the way the tech giant treated female employees as well as the company's crippling level of liberal bias. In the memo, Damore pointed out the fact that men and women are different, and argued Google's refusal to recognize these differences and embrace them was hurting the company. The memo was distorted by members of the media as an "anti-diversity tirade," when in reality, as many social scientists pointed out, science backs up Damore's statements.

Google’s latest acquisition could reduce your trips to the clinic

  Google’s latest acquisition could reduce your trips to the clinic GeekWire reports that Google has acquired Senosis, a Seattle-based startup that’s been making mobile apps to identify and monitor health conditions without the need for additional hardware. Fronted by Shwetak Patel, a computer science and electrical engineering professor at the University of Washington, the company has developed tools to detect jaundice in infants and measure hemoglobin in your blood (to screen for diseases like anaemia) using just your phone’s camera.

Scout eventually develops a more grown- up perspective that enables her to appreciate human goodness without ignoring human evil. But the end was so good, that i just sat there and read for like, two hours. I really wanted to know why everyone calls it an important literature book.

We are having trouble with our host, we will try our best to fix soon. Sorry for this inconvenience!

"Portions of the memo violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace," Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in a memo earlier this week.

Right-wing street artist Sabo took credit for the work in a series of tweets blasting the tech company.

Last night, news broke that Google cancelled an all hands on deck meeting about Damore's firing out of fear that it would leak to the media. New York Times columnist David Brooks called for Pichai to resign. And Damore has taken to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to explain why he was fired.

Google changes Play Store to prioritize apps that don’t crash .
Google today announced it was rolling out changes to the Play Store to increase the likelihood you’ll find apps which actually, you know, function properly. According to the Google Android developer’s blog, half of one-star reviews of Play Store apps concern app stability (I want to see what the other half look like, personally). With that in mind, Google switched up its search to favor apps and games of provably higher quality: As part of our continued effort to deliver the best possible Google Play experience, we recently enhanced our search and discovery algorithms to reflect app quality.
