Chrome Beta 43 for Android released with significant performance improvements

Chrome_Beta_Large_IconGoogle has announced the release of Chrome Beta 43 for Android, which supposedly brings some hefty performance improvements to the mobile browser. One of the most common complaints leveraged at Google’s browser is how sluggish it can, so any improvement there is a good thing.

Not only will overall performance improve, but Google has made checking out with Google Wallet even quicker. Personally, I tend to use apps for any kind of purchasing, not the browser on my phone, but some of you may prefer to get it all done within the browser. If you’re one of those users, you’ll definitely appreciate this update. Read more

Google apologizes for crude Apple image in Google Maps

Google_Maps_Bugdroid_Pissing_Apple_LogoBy now you’ve probably seen that sneaky little surprise in Google maps of an Android pissing on an Apple logo. We all sort of figured Google didn’t have anything to do with it, (not intentionally, anyway) but they’ve publicly come out and apologized for the gag, anyway.

The image ended up in the service thanks to Map Maker, which allows users to upload information about their local areas so Google wouldn’t have to do all of the heavy lifting. The edits are supposed to be reviewed and moderated before getting published, but it looks like Google got a little lazy this time around.

Google Easter Egg or hoax? There’s an Android pissing on the Apple logo in Google Maps

Google_Maps_Bugdroid_Pissing_Apple_Logo

Google has been know for some pretty clever Easter Eggs, but if what I am about to tell you is yet another one, Google may have crossed the line. If you open Google Maps and go to an area near Rawalpindi, Pakistan (link below), you will find our lovable bugdroid pissing on the Apple logo.

Would Google do this? I highly doubt it as it’s probably some manipulation using Map Maker. Whomever it is, has to be happy with themselves because they definitely made some noise this morning. Speaking of noise…….Is that Larry Page’s phone ringing? “Hello Larry, this is Tim Cook……” You can finish the rest.
