Google At A Glance turns two this week! Steve Lee from NetCastStudio.com is back with John and Nicholas and they discuss Google paying big bucks to remain the default search engine on iOS, President Obama joins a Google+ Hangout, U.S. Naval Academy now using Google Apps, Google Maps now available on the Wii U and HP working on an Android tablet.
1. Google Paying Big To Stay Default Search
In 2014, Google will pay Apple $1 billion to continue being the default search on iOS. Google has similar default search agreements with Mozilla Firefox who it is projected they will pay $400 million to in 2014. All together, it will cost Google about $3.5 billion to be the default internet search service in third party software products.
An astronaut aboard the International Space Station will answers questions in a Google+ Hangout on February 22. Starting at 11 a.m. ET, questions will be accepted via pre-recorded YouTube videos and tweets, Facebook posts and G+ posts submitted to NASA’s social media pages.
3. Naval Academy Now Using Google Apps
The U.S. Naval Academy is joining the ranks of organizations who have switched to Google Apps. They say many of their students were already using Gmail and it made sense to make the institution-wide switch to Google Apps.
4.Google Maps Now Available On Wii U
Ever wanted to look at an endless display of maps on your game system? If you own a Wii U, you’re in luck. Google Maps joins YouTube and is now an app on the Wii U.
5.HP Working On Android Tablet?
Rumor has it that HP will release an Android tablet in the coming months. HP’s last tablet effort was the TouchPad which featured the doomed WebOS.
