1.Google Maps For iPhone Back In The App Store – iOS Version Better Than Android
After months of waiting, iPhone users finally have an alternative to Apple Maps. Google Maps was originally pulled from the App Store back when the iPhone 5 first came out.
2.Lengthy Larry Page Interview
Google CEO Larry Page sat down with Fortune Magazine this week. The interview lasted 70 minutes and is one of the most in depth on record for the usually quiet Page. He touches on a wide variety of topics related to technology.
- Google+ “is” a big bet
- Page says user experience is #1 and ads in search only help
- 70-20-10 time is still in place – 70 to search and ads, 20 to apps, 10 to new projects
