Joining us this week is Seth Weintraub who is a Google writer for Fortune Magazine and 9to5Google.com. We talk about Google.com hitting 1 billion page views in a month, Google Profiles will soon have facial recognition, Google is about to announce a photo-based social network and thoughts from our guest on the EVO 3D on Sprint.
Guest: Seth Weintraub
Seth is a writer for Fortune Magazine covering all things Google. He also runs a blog network with 9to5google.com. 9to5mac.com and 9to5toys.com. Before Fortune he covered Google and Apple for Computerworld Magazine. Before writing, Seth was an IT Manager and director for a decade in Hong Kong, New York and Paris.
Once again (seems to be happening every week), Google updates their Google Profiles to be more social. Photo editing features, video page and more. They appear to be phasing/combining iGoogle.
Rumor has it that Google is about to announce a photo-based social network called PhotoVine. Will it combine existing photo applications from Google? We don’t know yet.
Using an old version of Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari? Better update quick because Google is cutting off support.
Google is the first site in the history of the universe to hit 1 billion views in a month.
5. Sprint EVO 3D goes on sale Friday.
Seth gets a chance to try out the EVO 3D before it launches and he gives his thoughts on the latest phone from Sprint.
