Google has been fined €145,000 for collecting WiFi data in Germany.



A German privacy regulator has fined Google for illegally recording signals from Wifi networks while it was taking photographs for its Street View service.
Google's roving Street View vans picked up large amounts of personal data such as e-mails, passwords, photos and online chat protocols, said the commissioner for data protection and freedom of information in Hamburg city state, Johannes Caspar.
Caspar fined Google 145,000 euros ($189,700), close to the maximum of 150,000 euros allowed under his mandate but a drop in the ocean for the top search engine provider, which has a stock market value of around $260 billion.
 It was discovered that between 2008 and 2010, Google accessed insecure Wi-Fi networks with its Street View vehicles and illegally downloaded large quantities of personal data including emails, passwords and photos. The company has admitted wrongdoing and has since deleted the data from its servers. Regulators still aren’t satisfied, however.

Google Rumored to Be Acquiring "WhatsApp" for $1 Billion.

Google Rumored to Be Acquiring "WhatsApp" for $1 Billion.
Rumors about WhatsApp being sold to Google were all over the web a few days ago, with talks about WhatsApp valuating itself at $1 billion.

However, Neeraj Arora, WhatsApp's business development head, told that the company is in fact "not holding sales talks with Google", though declined to say more than that.
Rumors about the sale of WhatsApp aren’t anything new. Back in December, it was speculated that Facebook was looking to acquire WhatsApp. The company officials had come out back then and denied any such talks with Facebook.

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.

In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.

Application stealing your DATA


Warning from "Symantec Intelligence Report September 2012"..!!


          The world of Android applications is truly a buzzing hive of activity these days. As a result, more and more scammers jump on this highly productive bandwagon, and the types of attacks and scams get more creative—some are so incredible they defy belief.

The effectiveness of these types of applications varies from the useful to the negligible, so a little research is required to determine this. Unfortunately there are also malicious applications, such as “Battery Long” (Android.Ackposts1), that appear to help with the battery life, but simply steal information from the compromised device.

Breaking through the boundaries of credibility are a bunch of applications that will supposedly turn your phone screen into a solar charger. Even though this is completely false, there are a number of “legitimate” applications out there making this claim. Many operate by using the cameras to measure the ambient light levels to move an onscreen dial, indicating the “charge rate” for increased accuracy. These are joke applications at best, in some cases even including small print on the application description page denying it has the ability to actually charge the phone.
Beyond the fun that can be had playing practical jokes, there is good reason to avoid such applications altogether. Take the following iteration of Android.Sumzand2 for example.



The application claims to be able to convert the screen on your device into a solar panel and use it to charge the battery, if exposed to sunlight. However, there are some unstated capabilities within this application that you need to watch out for—Android.Sumzand also happens to steal contact data from your phone.

Until real solar panels are actually installed on phones, it’s best to just continue charging your phone the old-fashioned way: plugging it in to a wall socked or USB port. Besides that, be careful what you download and install from application marketplaces. If an application requests permissions that seem out of the ordinary for what it is supposed to do, then don’t install it.

LIVE TRAFFIC UPDATES ON GOOGLE MAP in INDIA

Google has flipped the switch on its free turn-by-turn voice navigation service and traffic data in India. Any Android user can now use Google Maps Navigation to select best possible route to their destination, however the live traffic data is also available on desktop maps and mobile maps from the company.

LIVE TRAFFIC UPDATES ON GOOGLE MAP
LIVE TRAFFIC UPDATES ON GOOGLE MAP

Google Now uses card format to show this information and one of the several cards is traffic card, which gives you traffic conditions and alternate routes before you leave for work or home. Google Now also puts traffic to your next likely destination at your fingertips. But until now, the traffic cards weren't of much use in India as there was no traffic data, which has now changed.

Live traffic updates within maps for selected cities as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune but, surprisingly, not Kolkata. Red is the color indicating heavy traffic, while green indicates free flow, and yellow is somewhere in between.

Started in first week of September 2012, if you have a Jelly Bean running smartphone with Google Now, you will be able to see estimated time to your destination (home, office or any other location you search on Google) with traffic condition details. So, if you see that a particular road is seeing high-traffic, you can take an alternate route to your office and reach on time.

Google + Launches Business pages.

Google + Launches Business pages.



In today's world everyone wants to advertise their website or their business. We all are using Facebook pages and groups since a long time for this purpose. Google+ just launched Google+ pages competing Facebook pages.
Now create your own Google+ business page and promote yourself. It's simple and awesome. Some people just say that Google+ can not beat Facebook, but i say why not? Could you please answer just simple two question "Are you able to access Facebook in your Office? Are you able to access Google+ in Office". The answer to first question is NO, But the second question's answer will be Yes. According to a survey 95 % corporate companies and offices blocks Facebook, but on the other hand 95 % companies have allowed Google+ in their office.
So why shouldn't you promote your business and interest with Google+. According to me it will give you a big platform to present yourself and your brand. One more interesting fact which i consider is that Google owns Google+ so Google+ pages will be more visible on search results.
