Ever wanted to take a step back and look at all the Google apps and data you’re hooked into? Google’s offering that top-down view with Google Dashboard, a central clearinghouse for app settings, privacy information, and use statistics.

The main value to the average user at the Dashboard, reachable at google.com/dashboard when signed into a Google account, is a peek at all the services you use, the data Google’s acquired from you, and quick links to each app’s settings. You also get direct links to your Google calendars, your most recent Gmail messages and Google Docs documents, and secondary settings, like changing your personal information in apps that use that data. Those with privacy concerns also get quick links to the policies of every app they’re using.

Google Wants To Be Worlds’ Librarian

Could Google be the final chapter for books? Google wants to become the world’s librarian and bookseller. They have digitised more than 10 million volumes in more than 100 languages and have agreements to scan millions more. Will this help make our literary heritage more accessible or signal the end of traditional books? Will it lead to more readers? Will authors’ and publishers’ rights be disregarded for the sake of profit?

2 The US Constitution is one of our most remarkable inventions of all time. A lot of people in other countries think so too. It is a robust self-correcting legal OS. But it was written in an arcane code long ago. To make any sense from it you need some help. This lively graphic novel adaptation of the Constitution is by far the best aid I’ve found to deciphering its code. It is the comic book versi

12 The Gmail blog has a post up right now that’s interesting for a few reasons. First, it was posted around midnight of a Friday (this is supposed to be my no-news quiet time, Google). Second, it’s written as a chat exchange between two Google employees. And third, it has a kick-ass new Nintendo-esque theme. Truth be told, the Nintendo-like theme (called “High Score”, undoubtedly to prevent any trade

7 Google Voice users have been complaining the last couple of days that calls using the service are unceremoniously terminated after 15 minutes. The service is still in beta, but as we’ve written before, users expect perfection when it comes to voice calls. Problems like this make it hard for people to trust the service. From one user: “almost every call I make now dropping at 15 minutes and some s

How many times have you been startled to realize just how late it was in the day and you haven’t thought about what’s going to happen for dinner?

Jaipur: A laboratory owner was arrested for allegedly collecting blood from donors without proper tests and supplying it to a nursing home in Rajasthan’s Sriganganagar district, even as the government ordered a probe into the case amid charges that the blood was HIV infected.
It’s a convenient shortcut to think of the U.S. economy as a monolithic beast that, for instance, “shrank at a 1% annual rate” last quarter, but that simplification is a distortion of reality. In fact, the economy consists of hundreds of millions of individuals, millions of companies and billions of transactions.

Is Your Web Truly World-Wide?

Monday, November 10, 2008 by Chrix Finne

The Reader team is happy to announce that another 20% project has come to fruition: automatic translation in Reader! Post by 20% volunteer and glottology expert, Brett Bavar.

TagsBelieve it or not, the web truly is world-wide. That means there is a lot of interesting content out there in languages other than your own. You might have missed out on this content in the past, but now, with automatic translation in Reader, you don’t have to miss a thing!

Next time you find an interesting feed in another language, just subscribe to it as normal in Reader. When you view the feed in Reader, check off “Translate into my language” in the feed settings, and (voila!) the feed will be immediately translated for you. Also, this setting will be saved so you can always view this feed in your own language.

Many thanks go out to the awesome engineers on the Google Translate team, who have provided the technology to make this possible. As they continue to make their translation systems better, you will get to reap the benefits automatically.

Have fun discovering all the great content out there on the truly world-wide web!
