Offline Mode: Google Maps Most Important Feature is Here

It has been a very long time coming. Google Maps gets offline mode (well only on Android for now). This is one of the most important features to ever come to Google Maps. Starting today, Google Maps will make itself available offline (search and navigation) for Android, with iOS coming soon.

WordPress Plugin for Sharing Google Adsense Earnings

I don't normally post basic plugins, but here is a great one for Google Adsense revenue sharing for Wordpress. This plugin allows blogs to run a multi-author system and share out the revenues accordingly. Its a very simply plugin that just ads the Google Adsense Publisher ID of each author and then rotates it throughout the site on the posts they have created. Great to see a very simple plugin get a lot of use. I have even been thinking about using it here on Crenk. Here is a full link to the plugin. ...

Video: Vuzix Smartglasses – Google Glasses Competitor

It seems like Google Glasses finally has a competitor with the Vuzix Smartglasses. This is a quick video from TheVerge taken at CES. It seems like the Vuzix Smartglasses work fine, but the size is a big problem because it needs to be close to your eyeball and you cant see much else at the same time. It just seems like Google has a much slicker product at the moment. However, the good thing with this device is that it can click on to any pair of glasses you are wearing. This might fit in very well with athletes!...

Google Fibre Please Come to the UK

Google Fibre is a great new product from Google that is offering amazing internet speeds to houses in Kansas, USA (more cities to roll out later). However, here in Cornwall, UK (where we are based) we are having a huge amount of trouble getting decent internet speeds. Google Fibre is offering 1GB download speeds, which is amazing compared to the 17mb download speeds we receive here at the moment. In Cornwall they have been rolling out super fast broadband for the past year or so, but its still yet to come to the major town we are in. I really wish that Google Fibre would simply come here to Cornwall and Im sure the who state would sign up for...
