How to Install Google Cloud Print on Windows

As reported in our forum, Google recently added Windows support for its Cloud Print technology. It means, you can natively connect printers to the web and share them with your mobiles, tablets and no-printer-computers. We thought it would be great idea for everyone and therefore here is a guide explaining you how to install Google cloud Print on Windows.

Why You Should Install Google Cloud Print
If you frequently print document and images, then it can prove very useful. Google Cloud Print lets you –
#. Share printers with friends and co-workers
#. Print from any device like mobiles (Android and iOS), tablets, and laptops
#. Print without leaving applications
Consider these two cases –
1) Suppose you have a document on your mobile that you want to print. Without Google Cloud Print, you would first save it on your mobile, and then transfer it to a computer which has a printer connected to it and then finally print it. With Google Cloud, you can directly command your phone to print at any of th…

Make the most of the last weeks of summer

A couple of weeks ago, I took a summer trip with friends. I found myself using plenty of Google tools while we were on vacation: from finding the best flight there and a last-minute hostel reservation, to discovering hidden gems in each city we visited, even I was surprised by how much Google made everything easier and smoother.

With that inspiration, we’ve created a one stop shop at with tips to help you also make the most of these last few weeks of summer.

Here are a few tips you might find useful too:

The Google Search app was always handy, and I used voice search to ask simple questions like “Show me things to do in Split, Croatia” or for more pressing needs like “Translate ‘Where can I find a local beer?’ in Croatian.
Google+ Auto Backup gave me peace of mind that I wouldn’t lose my photos and memories, even if I lost my phone. Plus, I was able to share albums right from my phone with my family back home.
My travel buddies were grateful for my Google Play All Access playl…

World’s Oldest Calendar Dates Back 10,000 Years

Humankind has been developing systems to track time for thousands of years, but a recent discovery shows that such systems were already in use a lot earlier than previously thought.
Archeologists found what is believed to be the world’s oldest calendar in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The lunar calendar is about 10,000 years old and consists of a series of 12 large pits arranged and designed to mimic the phases of the moon.

This diagram shows the alignment of the pits and how they track various moon phases.

This ancient pit alignment was first discovered by aerial photography in 2004 but only recently was its importance recognized, with the help of state-of-the-art remote sensor technology and a special software that analyzed the arrangement and determined the position of sunsets and sunrises in the area 10 millennia ago.
According to the research team, led by the University of Birmingham’s landscape archeology professor Vincent Gaffney, his lunar calendar was actually created by hunter-gather…

NASA Fails in Cloud Computing Security

The space agency NASA has been increasingly moving data to the cloud but according to a new report from the agency’s Office of the Inspector General, NASA needs to work on strengthening its information technology security practices.
“We found that weaknesses in NASA’s IT governance and risk management practices have impeded the Agency from fully realizing the benefits of cloud computing and potentially put NASA systems and data stored in the cloud at risk,” the report reads.

In 2009 Nasa began its own private cloud computing at a data center called Nebula, located at the Ames Research Center but in 2012 the agency decided to move its data to public clouds due to more reliability and lower costs.
However since moving data NASA has had difficulties in meeting the proper security requirements. For example the agency has been moving data into public clouds without notifying the Agency’s Office of Chief Information Officer. It has also been working with contractors that did not “fully address…

Starbucks’ WiFi goes Google

Coffee shop + Internet—it’s a pairing that many us have come to rely on. WiFi access makes work time, downtime, travel time and lots of in-between times more enjoyable and productive. That’s why we’re teaming up with Starbucks to bring faster, free WiFi connections to all 7,000 company-operated Starbucks stores in the United States over the next 18 months. When your local Starbucks WiFi network goes Google, you’ll be able to surf the web at speeds up to 10x faster than before. If you’re in a Google Fiber city, we’re hoping to get you a connection that’s up to 100x faster.

Google has long invested in helping the Internet grow stronger, including projects to make Internet access speedier, more affordable, and more widely available. The free Internet connection at Starbucks has become an important part of many communities over the years, such as in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, or for students without Internet at home who do their homework at Starbucks.

We’ll start rolling out the new …

What to Look Forward to in Android 4.3

Not long after Android 4.3 Jelly Bean was officially announced by Google, smartphone manufacturers started to make their own related announcements. Sony, in particular, gave a short list of phones that will run on the newest Android version. Of course, you do not have to buy a new phone just to run Android 4.3 – some existing models will have the capability to upgrade when the time comes. (If you want to use that as an excuse, though, there’s nothing stopping you!)

But, what’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean all about? Is it really worth getting excited about it?
While Android 4.3 is merely an update to the current version – not a whole new operating system – there are some things to look forward to.
For Users

Bluetooth Smart – the bottom line is that this feature will allow us to connect external devices to Android 4.3 gadgets. Smartwatches, fitness trackers, and all those little gizmos will have no issues connecting to your Android 4.3 Jelly Bean device. Also known as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
