Google Makes Driving Easier

YouTube Preview Image

Google’s self driving car program has completed over 200,000 miles so they shot this special video taking a blind man on a ride to Taco Bell to showcase its potential. The program has been active since 2010, they are actively using the technology for Google Maps and are doing amazing research to be able to make this a reality for the public.

Google Current – New App for Android & iOS

In case you didn’t know, Google released a new free App/Service called Google Current for Android and iOS. Its a news app that will show you articles from hundreds of publications in a uniform interface making it really easy to read. I have been using the app for 2 days and I’ll probably be doing most of my reading from the app from now on. Also its good to see Google succed at something after some recent flops (cough – Buzz and Google+ – cough).

Watch the video to get some details.
