Out of every hundred dollars spent on digital advertising in Australia, $47 goes to Google and $21 goes to Facebook, leaving just $32 for every other social media site, search engine and news site to compete over. And when Australians do an online search, 94 per cent of the time it's via Google; likewise, of those Australians who have a social media account, some 95 per cent use Facebook. The statistics illustrate the dominance of the two platforms in advertising and media and, indeed, in the daily lives of Australians — and have now prompted Australia's competition regulator to launch a world-first attempt to curb its powers. In a report last week, the Australian Consumer & Competition Commission said we are "at a critical point in considering the impact of digital platforms

Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM Cloud recently announced plans to deploy satellite-based cloud connectivity. At face value, this seems extravagant. It may be hard to see the value of launching and maintaining a satellite constellation, given the ground station costs and bandwidth constraints of the past. But technology has evolved. The costs for building and launching satellites are improving dramatically. The real improvements are just being deployed: mobile-influenced ground-to-satellite communications will significantly lower the cost of building ground stations and improve satellite communications bandwidth and reliability. Watery Distances are the Challenge Undersea cables connect our global internet. Deploying and maintaining them is expensive. To-date, undersea cables have be...

After a years-long pummeling, Microsoft this week surrendered in the browser war, saying that it will junk Edge's home-grown rendering engine and replace it with Blink, the engine that powers Google's Chrome.With Edge pulling code from the Chromium project, the browser will also be able to run on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, as well as macOS."We intend to adopt the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility for our customers and less fragmentation of the web for all web developers," wrote Joe Belfiore, a corporate vice president in the Windows group, in a post to a company blog.Belfiore's announcement was a stunning humiliation for Microsoft, which in the early years of this century ruled the browser world...

Facebook’s former security chief and a Google software engineer are among critics pushing back on Google CEO Sundar Pichai, after he publicly defended his company’s plan to launch a censored search engine in China, code-named “Project Dragonfly.” Google has faced attacks on multiple fronts after its under-construction search engine for China was exposed in an August media report alleging the browser would block information about the Chinese government’s political opponents, democracy, human rights, free speech, and anything unfavorable to the regime. Pichai, in an interview this week with the New York Times, said he was “committed to serving users in China” and compared censorship there to the “right to be forgotten” law in the European Union, which can force Google to delete data it h

Google CEO Sundar Pichai offered a new justification for the company's exploration of a censored version of its search engine for people in China: it already censors information elsewhere. In a New York Times interview published Thursday, Pichai compared Europe's "right to be forgotten laws" to censorship when asked about launching a search product in China. "One of the things that's not well understood, I think, is that we operate in many countries where there is censorship. When we follow 'right to be forgotten' laws, we are censoring search results because we're complying with the law," Pichai told the Times. ...

When looking for certain images via Google one usually types in related keywords or, using Reverse Image Search, drags a picture into the search engine to see similar results. Google’s new AI experiment Move Mirror allows you to search through a database of images by standing in front of your webcam and striking a pose.

Google India To Move HC Against ITAT Ruling On Royalty Tax …

Google India has apparently decided to move the high court against the latest ruling by the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT), Bengaluru which mandates a royalty tax for Google Ad-words programme. The tribunal on Friday said the payments made by Google India to the parent firm Google Ireland constitute a royalty under the Indian law, as well as under the India-Ireland Double Tax Avoidance Treaty (DTAA), and therefore are subject to withholding tax, ToI reported. A Google spokesperson reportedly stated that, “This ruling is an inaccurate representation of our business operations in India.” The tribunal had passed a similar order in October last year for different assessment years and Google had appealed in the Karnataka High Court in November. “The order is also a clear departure
