Google expands bug bounty program beyond security vulnerabilities to large-scale platform abuse methods

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Elite hackers aren't the only thing Google has to worry about when it comes to its platforms. Perhaps just as pernicious are simple abuses of its systems and products — often stumbled upon by an average person with too much time on their hands. For instance, finding ways to purchase items from Google without paying, or getting around restrictions on content use and sharing. It's these issues that the Mountain View tech giant is aiming to uncover by officially expanding its Vulnerability Reward Program to include reports on techniques to successfully bypass its abuse, fraud and spam systems.

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Most of our audience is at least familiar with seeing the name TensorFlow appear in our coverage. For the uninitiated, Tensor Flow is a machine learning framework/library created by Google that allows developers to leverage the emerging technology for their own uses. Although v1.0 only landed last year, the team behind the project has continued its work, just recently announcing that a preview for v2.0 of the platform would be coming later this year.

‘Lazy loading’ feature to speed up browsing now available in Chrome Canary

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Web pages are becoming more and more complex, but browser vendors have been hard at work trying to offset that with performance and caching improvements. For example, Service Workers allow sites to cache certain data locally to speed up load times (or work offline entirely). 'Lazy loading' is another performance enhancement that has been in development, and now it has arrived in the Canary channel of Chrome.

The concept behind lazy loading is simple - images and frames that aren't visible to the user aren't loaded until they become visible.

Play Store on phones gains the option to set network download preference

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

The Play Store has long warned about the dangers of downloading large apps and games over mobile data. Just one big download can wreck your capped data plan. Now, the Play Store appears to have sprouted a new menu option to control this. You can now choose network download preferences.

Head into your Play Store settings, and the new "App download preference" option should be near the top in the General section.

Project Fi shutting down text forwarding on September 12

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

A sad bit news hit Project Fi users' emails today. Google's MVNO service is shutting down text forwarding on September 12. While I'm sure not everyone on the carrier uses this feature, I personally have relied on it since joining Fi. 

Google notes that call forwarding to another number will continue to work, so there's that. One of the reasons I use text forwarding is to keep my original number on Fi while using my Verizon SIM for data.

Google One is open to everybody starting today

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Google One, Google's new cloud storage management and product support service, has had a strangely protracted rollout. It was announced all the way back in May, and showed up on the Play Store shortly thereafter. It wasn't long until invites started going out to a select few, but now, in mid-August, some users still don't have access to it. That's changing, though, as Google has announced that "people in the U.S.
