This week John and Nicholas cover updates to Search, Google Music device limit, what happens to an email you send, Doodle 4 Google winner, Verizon data plan changes and Google/Nielsen survey showing web ads are better than TV ads.
Google announced ‘Knowledge Graph’ which it says will produce search results much closer to a human response.
Do you frequently switch phones or custom ROMs? Be careful about activating Google Music on each one. You’re limited to 10 devices authorized at a time but can only de-authorize 4. A total of 14 devices can go pretty fast when you’re using Google Music on smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops.
Google released a quick video and blog post explaining (in simple terms) what happens to an email after you push ‘Send’.
Google’s ‘Doodle 4 Google’ winner has been announced. This year’s winner is a second grader from Wisconsin.
Verizon is going to be rolling out “shared data” plans later this summer. Along with the new data plans will be a $30 upgrade fee and no more unlimited data for anyone who is upgrading.
