The company wanted to make the reCAPTCHA process "frictionless." No more images to click. No more scribblings to decode. Not even a box to check. The new reCAPTCHA is now here, and Google has accomplished its goal. The test is completely invisible to users. When you land on a website that's us...

By Patricia R. Drackett, Director and Assistant Extension Professor of Landscape ArchitectureThe Crosby Arboretum, Mississippi State University Extension Service Why do we go on vacations? Planning a trip is often fueled by a desire for a change of scenery, and yeaning to experience the natural beauty of a region.

Google's headquarters inMountain View, California, USA  How much does sexual harassment cost? If you are Google, it may cost up to $90 million per case. Last week the New York Times reported that a female employee accused Andy Rubin, the inventor of the Android and former Google employee, of allegedly forcing her to perform a sexual act at a hotel in 2013. According to the reporting, the company investigated and found the claim credible enough to let him go in 2014. But not without toasting his achievements and sending him off with a $90 million exit package. Whether spurred on by the gigantic price tag or the tech giant's silent acceptance of alleged sexual misconduct, now the women of Google are ready to walk. As first reported by Buzzfeed, more than

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 3:52 p.m. CDT By Cate Cadell and Jane Lanhee Lee (Reuters) - Traffic growth on Baidu Inc's mobile app helped drive higher-than-expected third quarter revenue as China's biggest search engine operator places more emphasis on artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous driving.
