How Google is subverting Apple through the iPhone’s app store

usnews:

Over the past six months, Google has begun to systematically replace core, Apple-made iOS apps with Google-made iOS apps. In July, Google launched Chrome for iPhone – a Safari replacement. Then, in October came Google Search – which included a voice search feature to compete with Siri. In December, Google launched Google Maps to replace Apple Maps, and a much-improved Gmail to replace Apple’s core Mail app. It also put out a new YouTube app, to replace the one that Apple removed during its last iOS upgrade.

In a way, Apple shot itself in the foot because, by dropping Google’s apps, they effectively allowed Google to prove is better at iOS app development than they are. (Barring the Gmail app, but that’s a different story.)

Expect iOS7 to have an updated design philosophy, because it’s beginning to feel dated now that developers are increasingly outpacing Apple itself at app design.

Google joins drone business, saves wildlife in one fell swoop

  • $5M the amount Google gave the World Wildlife Fund in an effort to fight wildlife crime. How, you ask? Well, it involves drones and rhinos. “The grant enables WWF to test advanced but easily-replicable technologies and create an overarching system to curb poaching—an important complement to the work WWF, partners and governments are already undertaking,” the group says. Cool. source

Tumblr’s back up and Google Maps for iOS is out. Looks like your night just got slightly more exciting. (Though the new phoenix-like Flickr app should keep you busy, too.)

Nate Silver took part in an Authors@Google interview/Q&A and covered a variety of topics including his book, the FiveThirtyEight blog, faulty polling, and whether pro football teams should be going for it in “4th & 2” scnearios. The whole session lasts just under an hour, but we definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a way to kill some time this afternoon.
