If [...]

Google Offers YouTube Advertising Course

Google retains a massive vice-grip on the online advertising industry, continuing to grow despite the “threat” of Facebook’s enormous user base.

Another Security Hole Found in Android

When it comes to security, Google Android has long been the weaker contestant. After all, the simple availability of the code through the open source community also means that malicious coders will have the opportunity to exploit any and all weaknesses. By that same token, however, this means that Android must quickly resolve any issues that [...]

Google’s Intrusive Advertising March Continues

Google’s initial concept for search and content advertising was simple but brilliant: to display highly relevant but non-intrusive ads to their users. But, oh how the mighty have fallen!
