Don’t Get Naked In Front Of Google

Here is a tricky situation. How are we supposed the classify this news? Is it a good one, or maybe bad? Google has launched an attack against the bloggers, who like to discuss or publish adult related content. For what is worth, some compromising solutions and options are offered to the adult bloggers.

You do not have to necessarily remove the content, but you have to put an eye-catching sign – adult, all over your blog. Otherwise, Google will put a giant cyber shade on your blog. That will spoil all the fun, for sure. So, what are you supposed to do? Google’s way, or some other blogging highway?

Google is obviously not willing to negotiate too much on this one. On the other hand, it would not be fair not to mention a couple of back doors in this matter. You can exclude the general audience by making this content to be a private one. In addition, you can say that you are doing it for the science or education related purposes.

It sounds funny, but you can rest assured that Google is going to buy it. So, what is the moral of this quite an unusual story? The nudity does not pay off with Google, or what? There is no use of reading between the lines of Google’s orders, isn’t it? At the end of the cyber day, it is always your final call.

The Positive Hero And The Negative Zero

Sometimes, having more than one billion visits per day is just not enough. This is the one you are definitely going to have a difficulty in accepting or believing. Here it goes. Google is not satisfied with the YouTube’s performance. Yes cyber boys and girls, we are in the show-me-the-money zone for YouTube.

How could this be? Well, it is actually quite simple. If you are going to be Google’s kid, then it is not enough to be successful or popular. You have to be profitable in the most unimaginable way. For what is worth, YouTube fails to achieve this standard in Google’s eyes. So, what is going to happen now?

Do not worry your videos are safe and sound. However, we are still having difficulties believing in this story. Maybe, Google looks for a convenient way to get away with its extremely unpopular intention of introducing the ads. Are we supposed to feel sorry for Google and YouTube? Seriously?

Poor them, let us give them some money in order to survive. Who knows, maybe Google has some strange standards for a successful business, which differ strongly from the perception of an ordinary mortal being? OK Google, do your thing. Whatever makes you truly happy and YouTube profitable.

The PornHub Energy

Do not judge a book by its cover, nor a post by its title. When you have more than 40 million visits to your website in a single day, you really have the power to change the world. This is exactly what is happening with the PornHub. We do not have to explain you what is this website all about, do we?

Despite what you may think about it, this website for the cyber boys and girls is surprisingly aware about its immense influence. The great thing about it is that this “energy” can be used for noble causes. With one of its actions, the PornHub planted a new tree after each 100 visits to the site itself.

Now, they are up to something even more serious, which is also green oriented. For what is worth, the PornHub invites its users to use the so-called manual energy for our planet’s well-being. Just imagine the power of this “green” and “renewable” energy. How many batteries, we can recharge in this way?

Considering the progress of our breathtaking cyber age, we can freely describe these methods of energy production as primitive and symbolic ones. However, the symbolism and good intentions are all that matters. Right? Keep up with the good “work” PornHub. Let the “energy” move this sad world.

Google vs Nude Blogs

Is nude rude for Google? Apparently, it is or was. Huh, there is no easy way of saying and explaining this one. So, let us start from the beginning. No one knows for sure, what can be found on Google, accidentally or intentionally. Well, Google looks as it has been infected by the Disney’s family friendly virus.

There was a rumor, as a matter of fact a serious one, that Google is going to fight the nudity among bloggers. The explicit content on Google platforms will be practically made invisible or heavily shaded. However, the so-called nude voices were surprisingly loud, strong and numerous against this one.
As a result, Google has decided to run a low profile in this field. There will not be severe sanctions against the bloggers, who favor and publish the explicit content. We dare to say, the compromising solution was to demand a fully transparent note “adult” on these websites and blogs. Is this enough?

We dare to say again, it is a little bit too much. Why? Let us face it. No one pays unexpected or accidental visits to these websites and blogs. Nowadays, even the children know what it means to be naughty online. Therefore, Google should worry about our privacy, and we will take care of nudity.

One Second And Billion Troubles

You have probably heard all about it, haven’t you? One single second is going to cause us so much trouble. Especially, for all of you busy little bees, who fly around the cyber world. We are not rocket scientists, and we have no intentions of becoming ones, but something we just do not get it. Can you guess?

We have done so many amazing things so far. However, we just cannot manage to handle one single second. Here is the catch. Every now and then, a couple of years more or less, you have to add or eliminate a second. Or, you can just ignore it. Really, our computers have nothing to do with it.

Our planet’s rotation is to be blamed. Here is one more solution. You can wait one hundred years, and then deal with the an entire minute. As always, it is your choice. The sad thing is that we are risking it, for an entire system to collapse. We keep repeating the same mistake, all over again. And again.

Well, we cannot handle one single second, then we have not deserved any better. In the meantime, what are we supposed to do? Business as usual, that is all we can say about it. We sure hope that someone will eventually solve this one second puzzle, sooner or later. We have had more than enough of these extra seconds. Right?

The New HTTP/2 Standard

Forget about the grandpa HTTP, because the new HTTP/2 standard is here. We only need to wait for a couple more checks and tests, here and there. What can we expect in return? Better Internet connection and improved security. Let us not forget the quicker web pages upload. Is this enough for you?

It comes without saying that is always a good thing to see some improvements in our brave new cyber world. Unfortunately, we often tend to miss the digital forest for the trees of new features. What is going to happen with our privacy? Not a word about it. Admire the new connection speed and stability.

But, forget to ask the questions that truly matter. That is what our new digital world order is all about. Our shiny new gadgets keep us forgetting the most crucial things about our cyber security and privacy. We are not partybreakers. Do not get us wrong. We do not want to spoil your good mood.

So, enjoy this moment of sweet expectation. Google is eager to get its hands first on this new Internet standard. We do not even dare to imagine what Chrome is going to look alike with the new HTTP/2. We will have to wait and see, what is going to be. Maybe, we are going to regret it. No one knows, for sure.

Connecting People

Do you remember, who used to claim this timeless and extremely popular slogan? Once upon a time, Nokia was connecting people all over the world. Nowadays, Facebook plans to do something similar, with the different objectives, though. So, what is up to this time? Our and world’s friend, Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook has launched the internet.org campaign or project. Call it what you want. Apparently, this is supposed to be a life changing thing for the most remote and undeveloped parts of the world, where the Internet has some second thoughts in terms of visiting. What can we do about it for real?

Facebook is dead serious about balloons, satellites, and drones flying around and dropping the Internet signal. This is a noble thing to do. No questions about it. Unfortunately, we have noticed something that threatens to spoil the party. The Facebook package does not include that much for the Internet newbies.

Only a Facebook app and some additional things, but nothing that can be associated with the competitors. What does it mean? Facebook gives a unique chance for the people in South America, Africa, and Asia. What is the first thing you are supposed to do once you get online? Opening a Facebook account, of course.

How To Eat, Drink, And Breathe The Internet?

One of the latest parliamentary cyber reports in the UK has quite an indicative title: “Make or Break: The UK’s Digital Future”. What is that supposed to mean? It seems that the busy little UK bees are worried about their digital future. Why? What went wrong? Well, to be perfectly frank on this one.

Nothing. Everything is just fine. People are using the Internet like never before. You have more computer and mobile devices. The Internet network is spreading at an unprecedented speed. However, that is obviously not enough. The politicians have figured it out. Is this unusual for them or what?

The boys and girls from the UK parliament have realized that the very future of their nation depends on the Internet. This is not a surprise nor a rocket science, as well. Just look at what the UK’s younger brother across the ocean has done with it. In terms of an inspiration you do not need more.

That is why the Internet has to be treated as the essential human right, just like air or water. You have every right to google all day long, and do not let anyone tell you otherwise. This is nice. Now, let us put some law to guarantee us the minimal Internet speed. Would not that be a sight worth seeing?

YouTube – Ads = ?

Is there such a thing as Google service with no ads? Can there be YouTube with no ads? We know it is hard for you to believe. So, what do you need to do in order to get an ad-free YouTube service? Well, it is quite simple. You have to pay for it. It seems that there is no other way. What does it mean?

It is more than obvious that this way or another someone has to pay. On the one side, we have the industry itself, which has an insatiable hunger for new customers. When it comes to them, everything and anything is allowed in the cyber world of advertising. On the other side, we have the YouTube users.

When you put it this way, it sounds almost like a blackmail, doesn’t it? You can call it what you want, but it will come down to the same thing. We are so disappointed. Why cannot Google find some painless and less obvious way to do its thing, and let us enjoy the content when and how we want it?

For what is worth, you will have to decide, and do your own math. Either you will live with the annoying terror of the endless ads, or you will pay for an ad-free video play. For the time being, there is no third option. Unfortunately, here you can forget about the win-win, there is only lose-lose for you.

1976 – 2016

Some busy little bee has dug out an “ancient” interview, where one of the most distinguishable fathers of the modern SF Sir Arthur Clarke predicts with an unprecedented accuracy, what is going to happen 30 or even 40 years in the future. Are we exaggerating with this intriguing claim? Judge for yourself.

This interview took place in 1976. Now, we are so close to the 2016. That is almost 40 years. When it comes to the field of both technology and innovation that is a light year in terms of time. Nowadays, we are witnessing the unparalleled changes in the four month time period, not to mention four or forty years.

So, what is the moral of this story? We had the great decades of prosperity and development behind us, thanks to the visionaries such as Clarke. He was surgically precise when describing the introduction of mobile phones, the Internet, and modern powerful computers. What do we have today?

There is an entire army of dark clouds, who like to think of themselves as visionaries. It is an easy thing to say that the future has nothing nice to welcome us with. It takes courage and intriguing mind to come up with useful future predictions. We should have cloned the good old Sir Arthur Clarke.
