Google Scholar seems to be mostly driven by the passion of one man.
I, for one, am very grateful. Google Scholar is a huge help in my work, and I remember the awful database interfaces we had to use before Scholar. And I don't really have any problems with the design. It is functional, and doesn't get in the way. That is all I ask.
Also, for anyone looking to get an SSL certificate. Don't be scammed by the many companies who charge you for it. Let's Encrypt is a great non-profit organization that provides free SSL certificates and an extremely easy to use program for getting the certificate installed.
There is multiple styles and colours for it too.

If you do this often, you may want to look into the colorzilla extension which allows you to use an eyedropper type tool on websites to hover over colors and find their RGB values and hex color numbers.

There already is a very well-developed app on the market, theScore eSports. I've had it for a while and really enjoy it.
Anyone can become a trusted photographer for Google and provide stores with in-door streetviews. A requirement is at least 50 public streetviews/photospheres.
Google has a website where you can see more about this and even see locals in your area that you can hire to do these streetviews.
Obviously not all types of stores are suitable for in-door streetviews, but I cannot wait until more stores add these photos. It will save both of us a lot of time.

It's weird, I remember reading this a few years ago: http://techcrunch.com/2010/12/02/the-amazing-readability-of-google-maps/
The original post from the 41Latitude blog isn't online anymore but I just remember it was a pretty in-depth post about how much Google put into the labeling and everything. The new Maps is a lot cleaner and better designed, but I'm not crazy about the color scheme. There's not a lot of contrast and it seems harder to read (but who knows, I might just have to get used to it).
Meanwhile on Android... You can actually choose which one you'd like most.
e: you can't use Siri on Android. But you can choose to use Cortana on a Pixel phone.
Google remove the "Remind me about new episodes" (or however it was worded) option from the Search card for TV series a while back, I bet this is intentional as they seem to be phasing out the feature.
That said, TVShow Time might fill the gap for you, its what I switched to. Bonus: it also has a Chrome Extension!

This is a piece about Assange and his meeting with Eric Schmidt and what Schmidt does for the US government. Quite an interesting read.
In case that's not obvious: change your password right now. If you can, enable two-step verification. Check your PC for malware, or just reinstall Windows entirely (or go for Ubuntu if that floats your boat).
edit If you want to go for even better security to prevent this in the future, I recommend you start using either an open source program like KeePass to store generated, random and most important, separate passwords for all your sites in an encrypted database. If you lose one site, no other site is compromised. You can put your KeePass database file on Dropbox, or you could use an integrated browser solution like LastPass (I prefer LastPass, but it's not as open).
I use Twilight. Works pretty good. I set it up with specific hours instead of tracking sunset, and it becomes much less annoying. And oddly enough, no ads.
They make a version for Windows too, and probably other machines.
Although it's disappointing that Google don't have a native feature to do this (one may come at some point, they are still rolling out loads of updates/overhauls) there are some extensions that allow this. I think this one should be able to do everything you want https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ooecfhdoddbnaemajiegakhchcfpjada

I was skeptical about your guess at first, however it seems likely to be a caching issue local to OP's phone after all.
Look at the number of reviews. 358 reviews with 3.7 stars. 1839 reviews with 4.8 stars. Currently I see 359 reviews with 3.7 stars. I'm not sure what the Play Store is caching (previous search results?), but it definitely is not stale ratings for this app.
That's an automation app called Llama. It's very useful, it may take a few minutes of learning how it works but after that it's pretty sweet.
It's in the standard gmail app that's installed on any android. I don't recall which folder I was in, but it was one of 'all inboxes', primary, social, promotions, or forums. Ads don't always show, but when they do they are displayed at the very top of the email list.
The app for the speed display is called: Internet Speed Meter.
They got a free version and a paid version. Ive been using this app since it got released, and always the first app to install on my new phones.

Spotify can also access your personal audio files on any device, but it's more of a hassle.
I wouldn't say that Spotify is great, but it's not bad. Better than YTM at least. It has some nice features, but its radio algorithms are pretty awful.
they didn't design this product, it already exists here: https://www.amazon.com/Feitian-MultiPass-FIDO-Security-Key/dp/B01LYV6TQM/ same form, same micro-usb. it also won't work on macOS without using the micro-usb cable, probably why they're bundling the other key in.
>Seeing that huge number in Task Manager’s Memory column may be shocking, but it’s also important to remember that free RAM is useless RAM. RAM exists for a reason: if your computer can store lots of stuff in its short-term memory, then it can recall those things quickly later on. And if your computer doesn’t end up needing that stuff, it will toss it away to make room for other programs that need those resources. If that RAM is empty, it isn’t being used, and you aren’t getting those improvements.
If you don't want Chrome to use so much RAM, which again, isn't necessarily a bad thing, use it as you would use Edge. Fewer Extensions.

> Apple Inc. and Google both removed apps associated with Hong Kong’s antigovernment protests from their digital stores in recent days, thrusting the two Silicon Valley giants into a controversy engulfing other U.S. companies.
> Apple removed from its App Store a crowdsourced map service that allows Hong Kong protesters to track police activity, one day after the Chinese Communist Party-run People’s Daily newspaper lashed out at the iPhone maker, calling the app “toxic software.”
> Apple said it pulled the app, called HKmap.live, because of concerns it endangered law enforcement and residents.
> Separately, Alphabet Inc.’s Google unit removed from its Google Play store a mobile game that allowed players to role-play as a Hong Kong protester. According to the developer, Google said the app, called “The Revolution of Our Times,” violated rules related to “sensitive events.”
> A Google spokesman said the company has a policy that prohibits developers from “capitalizing on sensitive events such as attempting to make money from serious ongoing conflicts or tragedies through a game,” and that it deemed the app in violation of the policy.
> Google received an objection from the Hong Kong authorities about the app, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. A Google spokesman said later on Thursday that the game had been flagged internally before any contact from Hong Kong authorities.
Seems like it's a bit of a stretch to equate the removal of these two apps. Looks like HKmap.live is still on the Google Play store.
If you want a cross platform (Android, iOS, Windows, OS X, Linux) framework alternative to Java, try Kivy: http://kivy.org
It's the only cross platform framework with "audiostreams" microphone input support. Java can't even do microphone input on all five platforms anymore.
I personally use AirVPN so I wouldn't use a Google VPN, but I'd trust a Google VPN over most US/Five-Eyes based providers. If your use-case is preventing things like ISP throttling and traffic inspection, a Google VPN might be one of the best options given their ability to handle traffic, their closeness to major internet backbones, their security capabilities, etc. It wouldn't be a good option if you planned to break some laws though.
I do use Google Fi so my traffic is routed their their VPN when auto-connecting to public internet and it's a great service (I wouldn't even consider using public wifi without it).
An app called Spark just released and it's the closest thing to Inbox I've found so far.
It does bundles, snoozing and pins. I'm really enjoying using it so far.
I found an app that simulates the top left one.
I never owned an older Nexus phone but I love how the lights shoot around the screen.
Simple repeat doesn't always suit peoples' real schedules. IE I have off every other Monday and come in late on every Monday I work [I work 9 hour days], Android's alarm clock is woefully ill equipped to deal with this schedule despite it being consistent and predictable.
Ended up getting an alarm app called Early Bird Alarm Clock, allows me to set up complex patterns, limit the number of times I can snooze, and set up challenges for dismissing alarms to force me to actually be awake, among a bunch of other features I don't use as much. Now the Android alarm app is only used when I set an alarm with Assistant.
FF 11: 12 tabs (6 different websites), 10 extensions. 321 MB.

Some benchmarks showing Firefox using less memory than Chrome. Chrome is great in many ways, but memory usage is not one of them.
>The Blink team is already doing more than just removing code, too. Google also talked about a number of Blink experiments it is working on, including Oilpan, which tests putting DOM nodes in a garbage-collected heap, and Lazy Block Layout, which examines how the engine can speed up the rendering process for large web applications by just focusing on the parts of a site that are actually currently on the screen. In one demo, this system helped the team to bring down the rendering time of a very large page from 4 seconds to 32ms.
>...a new design that will launch soon with the complete removal of the black menu bar.
What? I doubt they are going to do that. It's the main way they can hook people into Google+, for a start.
I use this Chrome extension to customise the black menu bar, replacing some of the redundant items with other Google services that I use often.
In the background you can see a Google street view car driving by, if you look here you can see the set.
Yup, it looks legit.

If the first two don't apply, then a good way to investigate the third (if you're on a Mac, if not, there should be PC equivalents) is using a tool like Little Snitch to look for network traffic coming from programs on your computer: https://www.obdev.at/products/littlesnitch/index.html

>But a Google spokesperson I emailed said that’s not entirely correct. (The spokesperson declined to be quoted.) Instead, they said marketers who track open rates through images will still be able to do so — indeed, they suggested that the data might be more accurate now since open rates will count users who read the emails but don’t load the images. What won’t get tracked, however, is other user data like users’ IP address. So this seems to do more to protect privacy without leaving marketers totally in the dark.
I'm sick of the media calling this the Github killer.
This has nothing to do with Github. It's not meant to compete. This isn't a Google Code alternative and it's not at all related.
This is a part of Google Cloud Platform (think Amazon EC2). It's meant to store the code you're running in production and let you make small changes. It doesn't have any team functionality or bug tracking or commenting or collaboration.
See the Hacker News thread: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9775897
The "Github killer" nonsense is just sensationalist media clickbait.
Google has a Chrome extension that replaced their Blocked Sites page they used to have.
There's also this suggestion for Firefox, but as I'm not a FF user, I can't say if it'll work or not now, as the suggestion is 2 years old. http://superuser.com/a/648003

Ohhhh, I see. You just don't know what you're talking about.
Look at LE's FAQ:
> What services does Let’s Encrypt offer?
>Let’s Encrypt is a global Certificate Authority (CA). We let people and organizations around the world obtain, renew, and manage SSL/TLS certificates. Our certificates can be used by websites to enable secure HTTPS connections.
>Let’s Encrypt offers Domain Validation (DV) certificates.
So, in other words NOT this:
> Self-signed certicate
> In cryptography and computer security, a self-signed certificate is an identity certificate that is signed by the same entity whose identity it certifies.
Don't spread misinformation.

The stores input them themselves on MyBusiness because nowadays you're a fool if you're not putting your info on Google as a business?
Your account was hijacked. It's hard to say how, but you might have some malware with a keylogger on your system (check that!), or you might have accessed them on an insecure system (e.g. internet cafe), or an insecure wlan.
Please make sure you follow this checklist so that the intruder can't access your account anymore: https://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=50270
Also, be aware that this forwarding might have been there for months already - the warning system was only added this week. The attacker has already seen all your emails, so if you have additional account passwords in there, or bank data, or anything other dangerous, change it now.
As a last tip, activate two factor authentication for your account, so in the future, if your password is compromised, your account is still safe.
This is the single greatest email app of all times. The hero of modern times. The singularity. This is making Skynet your bitch and sort emails from spam for you.

It's actually easier than a FB wall post. You're just sharing your post with one person rather than your circles. No one else will see it. In my eyes, this is so much better than FB where people write on other people's walls and everyone can see it and it's annoying as fuck.
Also, here's a nice document that helps answer all the questions you might have...
Can someone confirm this using a link rather than normal status update as the control, preferably similarly obfuscated? Facebook's algorithm weights status updates, comments, photos, and links differently, although I'm pretty sure a link would actually be weighted higher than a status update.
I wouldn't put it past Facebook to do this, but let's double check before we grab our pitchforks.
Try the desktop uploader, just put your pictures in a directory and the app will take care of everything else, if something cannot be uploaded you will get a warning and the filename.
This is awesome. Have been doing some of the tutorials and read through part of the how-tos.
Does anyone here know where I can get the Tensor~~Flow~~Board visualization tool?
It is mentioned in one of the howtos, but I can't find it anywhere.
EDIT: Never mind, it was included in the default installation but I simply couldn't find the script's location. I had to do

I might be missing something, but isn't this already included in Google's Files app? It's even available from the share menu
It's got a much cleaner interface and feels better to use. You do have to pay to remove the e-mail signature, but I barely send e-mails so it doesn't matter too much for me. The privacy and ProtonVPN are both huge benefits too.
Google Assistant, it's like Apple's Siri but better. It has an object recognition mode, but the photos this guy took are pretty blurry and took from a bad angle, so it didn't work in this case. Anyway, if you want to get it and you don't already have it installed on your phone (check by long pressing the home button), there's an app on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.googleassistant
I use this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.textra
And this app that goes with it https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.textra.emoji
The free version is good enough, and the adds are not terribly intrusive, but I personally bought it because of the added features
Can I suggest an app called Vaulty?
When you've recieved a photo through text or whatever, just hit the "share" button and select Vaulty. It gets saved in Vaulty which requires a password to access and doesn't show up in your file system so other apps don't see it either. It's worked fine for me.
This does different time signatures. You get to specify number of beats, and bar length. You get to specify how many clicks per beat. You can customise the sound of the clicks. Great for me when I'm recording drum parts.
you can get the historical prices from Yahoo Finance (sorry google, but yahoo still kicks your ass in that area).
I actually made a mistake on GOOG's price 2 years ago, should have been $590, which brings the return down to 71%
I would imagine, if Google were to acquire Hulu (and the content providers didn't hamstring the site more than they do already), this could be a massive win for the consumer - provided they belonged to the Android ecosystem. I can see every Android device (including Google's Android@Home devices and GoogleTV) having access to a massive content library. In addition, Google could throw tons of cash to acquire even more content through the Hulu brand. But, what does that mean for YouTube and its rental system?
I'm not sure what Yahoo! could or would do with Hulu to improve lives of consumers.
Dish could leverage existing deals to allow subscribers web-based access to "Dish only" content - maybe vise-versa...?
This would be a win for Amazon and their Prime brand, especially with their upcoming Android-based Kindle tablet.
I don't know, but here's some information (I'd guess it's very similar) - if you plan your route on Wifi it preloads most of the data - https://www.quora.com/How-much-data-do-Google-Maps-Waze-and-similar-apps-take-if-you-use-them-for-car-navigation
Wait till you get used to hazard, accident, and speed trap reports. They "gamify" people reporting things and is probably the best example of gamification I've seen.
It's not forbidden, but Google was forced to let user opt-out of having their property shown on Streetview.
Only about 3% of households actually opted out, but it's enough to warrant some ridicule.
You can find plenty about this on Google, but here are few links to get you started:
Google did have them before Bing, but Google briefly enabled them by-default on the google.com landing page, after Bing launched.
That is likely what Lyxh is thinking of.
I’ve been going to adobe’s color wheel all the time, which is overkill for many things. But it’s still super useful:
To stop the backup, go to Google Photos -> Settings -> Backup & Sync, there is a slider on the top. Select 'off'.
To check what has already been backed up, simply go to https://photos.google.com on a desktop, login with your gmail, and see if there are any photos uploaded.
If there are any uploaded, just select them, and delete. Also, delete them from the 'Trash' folder (they'll automatically get deleted after 60 days).
There are several websites like this one that help ya transfer the playlists/libraries.
In RTF format you can set the name and URL of a link separately, so for example you can make a link name "google.com" and have it direct to something else.
Unless you carefully pay attention to the URL in the status bar (usually at the bottom of the browser window when hovering over a link), it's better just to copy the link and paste it the address bar to see the actual URL.
Edit: for example, http://www.google.com
This is why you need to use your own domain if you're going to use google apps (don't buy it from google domains). At least you'd be able to redirect your to someplace more sensible if the mighty googleplex decides to "unperson" you. Good luck having to recover an account that only has your @gmail.com address for the reset.
> the reminders are intertwined with emails. NO OTHER EMAIL CLIENT DOES THIS, AND THIS IS WHY INBOX IS SO SPECIAL AND STILL HAS VALUE. With emails and reminders combined into one seamless list (and turbocharged with the snooze feature), Google has created one of the best productivity dashboards I've ever encountered
I'm holding out hope that google is still working on something big in this area. In fact I'd be willing to bet that "productivity dashboard" will be a good description of Google's next major GSuite product announcement. Perhaps it will be a separate product, but more likely I think it will be released under the Google Tasks brand.
Here's my thinking:
At work, I use Gmail+Calendar+Keep+Tasks as my "productivity suite", and it's obvious that these are all tightly integrated on the backend. But the lack of a single dashboard where it can all be seen and managed together is quite striking. And with inbox gone, there will be no single point where reminders can be viewed.
The "new" (re-skinned) Google Tasks came out a few months ago and as yet they haven't done anything with the old canvas view (https://mail.google.com/tasks/canvas). They could easily have re-skinned that by now, but they haven't. Also, they've added zero new functionality to Tasks since it was redesigned. To me, all this points to something bigger being worked on in the background. I find it hard to believe they would put all that work into redesigning the Tasks front-end in gmail, and building the Tasks app, if there weren't some bigger plans to improve the underlying features.
I wouldn't be at all surprised to see something like this coming out before Inbox shuts down for good. Time will tell I suppose.
Honest question: What's Google Lens? A "new version" of the old Google Goggles? I mean, that old app also had a feature of detecting stuff in photos. So… What's new?
I know this is not a direct solution, but your post reminded me of this popular app, maybe it will be a good work-around for you?
Here is the view from Google street view.
Actually, thanks to DCMA and DVD encryption, ripping your own DVDs is breaking the law, as is playing them on Linux.
It's a task-based view of your e-mail, you mark e-mails "done" when you're finished with them rather than delete/archive. You can snooze e-mails to have them resurface later. It integrates reminders into your e-mail inbox (which you've mentioned). One of the things I really like is that you can manage when things "surface" in your mailbox - like by default, promotional materials only surface once a day, but personal e-mails are delivered immediately. Certain categories of e-mail that I've set up (with filters) only show up once a week. You can pin e-mails to the top of your inbox, which is a great way of keeping important tasks on top of your view.
I think it works best for high-volume accounts, like my corp account gets 300+ e-mails a day and it's reduced the amount of time I spend on e-mail by a huge amount.
Plus, the material design rework of the interface is smashing.
The medium post someone linked elsewhere does a good job going over some of the features: https://medium.com/backchannel/inbox-is-the-app-child-of-gmail-and-google-now-ef5ff364d65c
I've been having success uploading into Google Drive with rclone. If I had your problem, I'd spin up a DigitalOcean instance, curl to download to its SSD disk, and rclone up into Google Drive. (I do have a propensity for on-the-surface complex-looking compositional solutions).
It's the tablet version. Check out this post on the Google help forum - it seems like Google is working on it.
Um, Waze for both Andoid and iOS have been doing this via a crowdsourced mechanism for years. The app has even improved a bit since they were bought by Google. It isn't perfect, sometimes missing construction closures in LA till someone reports them, but it has routed me around seriously bad accidents amazingly well.
If you want to improve maps please consider helping https://www.openstreetmap.org/ not a proprietary closed one that could change they term of use at any time.

Dude you are in luck! Google just added the ability to switch old photos to the "High Quality" settings. I was running out of space for the same reason. I saved ~6GB space doing it. Here is the link and hit "Recover Storage".

Gmail provides an Atom feed, but requires authentication. If you have cookies for Gmail, you can probably see it now in your browser:
I have frequently used this to provide Gmail notification in various scripts that I've written. It's rather convenient if you're the type to keep meticulous care of your inbox.
I use Nova Launcher Prime and an app icon theme pack called Lines.
Try searching for the area around which your trying to save like the country and click download button when the place pops up click here. Also if you want offline for the best app is HERE WeGo it is good for offline use, I recommend having both google maps for online and HERE for offline.
Xlythe calculator. Icon pack is just set to round icons I think. It's really nice, and has a floating calculator which you can launch from notification quick tiles. It's really useful
> "now if only anyone used Allo"
That's because they launched it focusing on the emojis and drawing capabilities, and then later on they added "Incognito mode - Send messages with end-to-end encryption", which is great, but they failed to tell anyone that feature existed.
I'd be much more inclined to use Allo if the privacy features were the #1 feature, and all emojis/drawings/stickers were able to be disabled.
Is it even compatible with normal SMS, MMS, and Apple messages? If not, then that's a huge deal-breaker, except for the end-to-end encryption mode, obviously that can't be used with other services.
