Self-driving Cars by Steve Coast

 I suspect that in a while we’ll just call self-driving cars by their name today; cars.

There’s an idea out there that The American Family will buy a self-driving car to replace their old boring human-driven car. I don’t think it will happen that way.

Matt Cutts: Gadgets, Google, and SEO —links

Q: If I can’t email you, how should I communicate with Google about search topics or find out about new things in search?
A: I’m so glad you asked! There’s still tons of ways, from our webmaster forums to Office Hours Hangouts where you can ask questions to experts. On the social side, instead of sending SEO-related comments to me on Twitter, you can ping the Google Webmaster Central account. Likewise, make sure you follow Google Webmasters on Google+. A bunch of different Googlers will continue to speak and answer questions at search conferences too.

For broader search-related news, read our Webmaster blog or Inside Search blog. To understand how Google thinks about search, we’ve made hundreds of webmaster videos and they’re designed to be evergreen.

Our web documentation is superb: Google Webmaster Central is the best place to start. From there, you can find our Webmaster Academy, our help documentation, and our SEO beginner’s guide. We even made a mini-site about how search engines work.

One of the most important ways to hear from Google is to add and verify your site in Google Webmaster Tools. That’s the primary channel to find out about issues with webspam or other errors or notices.

Moves app changes policy to allow data sharing with new owner Facebook | Technology | theguardian.com

Eleven days after being purchased by Facebook, the activity tracking app Moves has changed its privacy policy to allow it to share user data with its parent company.

The new version of the app’s privacy policy allows it to “share information, including personally identifying information, with our affiliates (companies that are part of our corporate groups of companies, including but not limited to Facebook)”.

Moves uses motion sensors inside Apple and Android phones, as well as GPS information, to track a user’s location and activity throughout the day. Not only does its information include someone’s whereabouts, down to which building they were in when they started using the service, it even knows if they travelled between locations on foot, bike or bus.
