The risk of using apps that access your Gmail account

“Enterprise expert finder” gplus.com mistaken for Google+, stupid user hijinks ensue

I pity the moderators at gplus.com. The site is a forum for Gerson Lehrman Group, "the premier enterprise platform for connecting to experts and their insights." But countless Stupid Users trying to find Google+, the search giant's new social network offering, think Gerson Lehrman's G+ is Google+'s G+. Maybe it's just me, but I found it hilarious. [...]

Google+ Hits 10 Million Users: Should Facebook Freak Out?

Google+ Hits 10 Million Users: Should Facebook Freak Out?

You know what's cool? A BILLION users. In just two weeks, Google+ has reached the 10 million user mark. For a tech company so used to losing the social media game, this could be its moment. Those numbers look like peanuts compared to Facebook's 750 million users, many of whom check in every day. But the site is expected to double in size by [...]

A lot of people are joining because it's "new" and it's the "in thing" for the hipsters to have a Google+ invite, but let's wait a bit and see if it has any staying power, shall we? Anyone remember Google Wave? Yeah, that was hot for a few minutes once, too. I've spent the last week playing with the new Google+, and I´m here to tell you the [...]

Google has secretly developed self driving cars that have logged over 140,000 miles on public roads

If this isn't a joke it is a tremendous advance. I for one would trust robotic cars more than drunk or texting drivers on the road. How cool would it be to have an autopilot feature to take you home when you had a few too many? So we have developed technology for cars that can drive themselves.

HOWTO: Find anyone’s address from their router MAC address using undocumented Google Maps API

Here is a proof of concept on obtaining *accurate* GPS coordinates of a user sitting behind a web browser via router XSS. The router and web browser themselves contain NO geolocation/GPS data.
