another china-google rumor is here, but is it true?

A new rumor centering on Google’s expansion into China hit the internet today.This time, there are three codenames involved: “Dragonfly,” “Maotai,” and “Longfei.”There have been multiple rumors surrounding a China-Google compromise over the years — but none have ever panned out.Google is by far the most ubiquitous search engine on the planet. Even though other search engines exist like Bing, Yahoo, Ask, DuckDuckGo, and more, Google dominates the industry with a 72 percent share globally.But there’s one place where Google isn’t even close to being top dog, and that’s China. In fact, in China, the entire Google ecosystem has almost no presence at all.The reason for this is because the Chinese government requires all internet search companies to drastically censor search results to block “con

if there were a google china, 90% of chinese would use it, says poll

The CEO of Baidu — China’s largest search engine — says that Baidu will still be successful should Google come to China.Chinese citizens, however, expressed on social media that they heavily favor Google and strongly dislike Baidu.Weibo comments, polls, and even the Baidu CEO statement on the matter were all deleted by the Chinese government.Google is the most popular search engine in the world, with a global market share of a whopping 72 percent. But in China, Google isn’t top dog at all – not by a long shot.That’s because Google – for all intents and purposes – isn’t active in China. Instead, the largest search engine in the country is Baidu, a Chinese product that is heavily censored as per regulations by the Chinese government.Last week, a new rumor surfaced that Google might be planni

google finally brings arcore to china via xiaomi mi mix 2s

Google has brought ARCore to China via the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.ARCore apps are available in the Xiaomi App Store.ARCore is unlikely to be exclusive to Xiaomi for long as Google said it has “more partners coming soon.”Google has finally brought ARCore to users in China. In a tweet, the company announced that owners of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S are now able to download ARCore apps from the Xiaomi App Store. Previously, ARCore was only available on Google Play, which is blocked in the country.The statement from Google also mentions “more partners coming soon.” This suggests that other manufacturers could be about to release ARCore in China on their own own app stores. Chinese brands OnePlus and Huawei already support ARCore on some of their devices.Starting today, #ARCore apps are available on Mix 2S

Google employees are reportedly concerned about a secret censor-friendly search engine project for ChinaHundreds of Google employees have signed a protest letter over the company's reported work on a censor-friendly search engine to get back into China, The New York Times said Thursday.
The employees are demanding more transparency so they can understand the moral implications of their work, said the Times, which obtained a copy of the letter.It has been signed by 1,400 employees and is circulating on the company's internal communications system, the newspaper said, quoting three people who are familiar with the document.The letter argues that the search engine project and Google's apparent willingness to accept China's censorship requirements "raise urgent moral and et

google's mobile augmented reality platform arrives in china

More ARCore partners are "coming soon," Google teased.The search giant isn't a stranger to this kind of end run. When it wanted to bring Android Wear to China, it initially teamed up with Mobvoi to make the platform available. And in both cases, the motivation is the same. If Google didn't make the technology available in China, it risked ceding control of key technology to either third-party Android developers or direct competitors like Apple (whose ARKit is readily available in China). No matter how ARCore fares in the country, this keeps Google's foot in the door.

google's own smart display will reportedly fuel the alexa war this year

Google is said to be planning to release a new smart speaker, and it might be looking to the Echo Show for inspiration. A new rumor claims that Google will release a smart speaker with a display at some point this year. If that turns out to be true, then that means Google would have a smart speaker to compete with almost every device in Amazon’s Echo line up.There is, of course, an outlier in the Echo Look, but it’s hard to imagine Google coming up with a competitor to that one. In any case, this rumor comes from Nikkei Asian Review, which spoke to unnamed sources who told it that Google will look to have this display-equipped smart speaker ready to go by the ever-important holiday shopping season.READ MORE: Lenovo Smart Display ReviewThose who have following the development of the Google

googlers bristle at censoring search for china: report

August 4, 2018
Google withdrew its search engine from China eight years ago due to censorship and hacking but it is now working on a project for the country codenamed "Dragonfly," an employee told AFP on condition of anonymityWord that Google is crafting a search engine to meet China's draconian censorship rules has sparked widespread employee anger at the company which has responded by limiting workers' access to documents about the project, a report said Friday.
Google was scurrying to stop leaks and quell outrage inside the company over what had been a stealth project prior to a report this week by news website The Intercept."Everyone's access to documents got turned off, and is being turned on [on a] document-by-document basis," a source told the news site.

ucweb responds to uc browser's removal from google play

Update: November 17, 06:20 ET, In another twist in the UC Browser tale, it appears that the “employee” who first weighed-in on the situation may not be an employee after all. A Twitter user going by the name of Mike Ross originally said that he worked for UC Browser and provided insights into why the app had been pulled from Google Play. In a statement to MobiGyaan, UCWeb said he wasn’t an employee.“The reason for the removal has nothing to do with alleged data security breach or malicious promotion,” said UCWeb. “We would like to state that we have no records of anyone named ‘Mike Ross’ claiming to be working for UC Browser, as mentioned in some reports. The person claiming to be working for UC Browser is in no way associated with the firm nor represent the views of the company. The alleg

Last week the rumor was that Lytro was being picked up by Google for $40 million, in addition to its patents and technology. Last December, Lytro shut down its photo sharing network. With how hard Google is going on VR, the acquisition makes sense. With I/O coming up soon, maybe we'll hear more about the acquisition in short order.
