Google showed off lots of new stuff yesterday . But this is the one thing you’ll use the most.
The concept is simple: money as an email attachment. And it’s not fundamentally more capable than PayPal, which has let you send money to other people for years. But in online payments, ease counts for a lot — preexisting iTunes accounts are a large part of why the App Store caught on so quickly, for example. Which is why this, which was buried among flashier announcements about Chrome, Glass, Android, Music and Maps, might be the most important thing Google's announced in months.
This is a video from Rhett and Link (whose truthful mobile house commercial is a timeless that I view bi-weekly) clarifying the rules of ‘Risky Settlers, Knights and Allies of the Lords of Rule of Earth, Pandemic Version’. It’s a jocular take on the trouble of finding out the policies of a game you’ve never ever played prior to. Me? I’ve sworn off board games ever before considering that I was dishonorably discharged from my post as Dungeon Master after I was caught concealing weighted dice in my wizard hat. Thank God they didn’t browse my magic pouch.
Struck the jump for the video.
Remember, you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
On any dating website, choosing your profile headline takes some finesse and creativity. It's the first thing viewers will see, and judge, on your profile. The situation is no different for the “world's biggest gay hookup site,” Manhunt. The website decided to have their tech team pull data for the most popular headlines in the United States of America.
Forty-nine of fifty states had some variation of “hey guys” at the top of their list. Connecticut was the only state that had some creativity with, “looking for a top.” Can you feel the romance blossoming?
How can you resist a line like that?
From the last 15 years. The ads were often more fun that the games.

From 2000, via France.
Many of these ads — and most of the crazier conceptual ones — were created by the Paris office of worldwide ad agency TBWA.
In recent years, PlayStation advertising worldwide has gotten much tamer, which is a shame.

Adults see one version of the ad, children see another, more violent version.
The Spanish organization ANAR Foundation (Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk) just started a new street poster campaign that uses the process of lenticular printing to secretly send a message to abused children without alerting their abusers, even if they’re walking together.
The ad agency, Grey Spain, explains the process:
ANAR Foundation manages in Spain the european unique phone number 116 111, to attend children and teenagers under a risk situation. On this telephone number, only for minors, they can find the help they need in a totally anonymous and confidential way.
But, how can we get our message to a child abuse victim, even when they are accompanied by their aggressor?
Knowing the average height for adults and children under 10, GREY has created two different messages. Using an outdoor lenticular we show adults an awareness message, while children see a message where we offer them our help and show them the telephone number. A message only for children.
It is a revolutionary and creative idea, for sure.
But really: How many abused children is this going to actually help?
How many who see the ad will call the number?
How many abused children who see the message will get scared out of their wits?
And, how many monster abusive parents will also see the secret message?
How many of these posters have been put up in Spain? One?
I've emailed the ad agency.
This will clean up at the ad awards shows, for sure.
I just hope to god it actually does some good, and doesn't provoke any abusers.
NOTE: This Irish commercial is still far and away the most powerful child abuse awareness ad ever produced.
Anyone over 4'5″ sees this view, with this copy: “Sometimes, child abuse is only visible to the child suffering it.”
Anyone shorter sees the beaten child version of the poster, with this copy: “If somebody hurts you, phone us and we'll help you.”

Nexus tablet device sales remain a bit nebulous, since Google does not offer specific numbers around them. However market watchers, and Benedict Evans in particular, commonly try to pierce the veil to discover where the Nexus brand name stands compared to the remaining industry when it comes to sales. The Nexus 10, it appears, probably diminishes in contrast to the majority of.
The tablet, made by OEM partner Samsung, went on sale in November of in 2012, simply shortly after the iPad mini, and based on Evans’ estimates from modeling energetic Android individuals, incorporated with details from Google’s advancement data based on display sizes and resolution in use. Based on there being 680 million energetic Android individuals by the end of April, Evans states that that suggests 6.8 million Nexus 7 gadgets overall, and just around 10 percent of that, or 680,000 Nexus 10s.
As Evans notes, Apple sold someplace near 10 million iPads throughout just the final 2 months of Q4 2012 by comparison. It also revealed overall iPad sales for its first financial quarter of 2013 of 22.9 million iPads total, including bot the iPad mini and the standard iPad. To claim that Google’s efforts with the bigger Nexus tablet up until now haven’t had clients rushing to shops would be reasonable, even if Evans’ estimate is only freely exact.
Google is claimed to be preparing to debut a next-generation Nexus 10 currently, with an enhanced CPU and GPU. However the issue right here is not truly about gadget quality; many discovered the Nexus 10 a fine entertainer, especially compared with numerous other larger Android gadgets from other sources.
Google’s line of self-branded hardware has never ever been totally about selling product. They getting started being more about working as reference designs, to show OEM partners what was possible with the platform. Recently, thanks to extreme price and significantly impressive hardware like the Nexus 4, nevertheless, they’re becoming more popular with basic consumers. But an LG-made smartphone that fits a need most consumers already understand they have, with a proven item classification like the Android smartphone is a far cry from a 10-inch Android tablet, which the marketplace has actually up until now reflected little interest in, no matter what the source or the price.
The inflection point for Android tablet sales still has yet to appear. Google’s Nexus efforts in this case could be an essential element of assisting that happen, but just if the company can also begin to strongly broaden software options tailored for Android tablets and ensure clients know why they may desire such a device.
