  1. Someone Over at Google Translate Is a Huge Comic Book Nerd

    I'll be honest: I have no idea about the technical magic that goes on at Google on a daily basis, so I'm just gonna go ahead and point to good ol' fashion time travel on this one.

  2. New Google Technology to Wage War on Internet Spoilers by Tapping Into Your Viewing History

    Spoilers!

    Spoilerphobes, rejoice! Google has just patented a system that will block out Internet spoilers for shows you watch automatically. It's hard to know how well it will work out in practice until they've got the system up and running—or maybe we do know the future, but we don't want to spoil it for you. Yeah, let's go with that.

  3. Google Maps Will Now Turn Any Street Into a Playable Pac-Man Level

    No joke.

    April Fools day isn't until tomorrow, but Google has added a silly new feature to maps early: play Pac-Man on any streets you please.

  4. Magic Leap’s Virtual Reality Game That Fills Your Office With Robots Sure Looks Amazing… If It’s Real

    Dance magic dance. Leap magic leap.

    This video from the "augmented reality" company Magic Leap purportedly shows a game they've been "playing around the office," and whether it's a concept video or something closer to reality, it sure looks like a lot of fun.

  5. Play Google Feud to Turn Auto-complete Search Suggestions Into a Bizarro Family Feud

    "This game ____________." Has destroyed my productivity?

    We've all played the non-competitive version of this game, which is typing something into Google and seeing what completely bonkers autocomplete suggestions will populate. But Google Feud takes that passive time-waster and makes it a little more active with a Family Feud-style scoring system.

  6. Apple, Disney, Facebook, Twitter, & Hundreds More Urge the Supreme Court to Uphold Marriage Equality

    Today in good news.

    The Supreme Court of the United States will soon hear a case on whether or not state-by-state anti-marriage equality laws are constitutional, which is likely to clear the way for nationwide legal acceptance that we should all be able to marry the person we choose. Now, a group of 379 companies, from tech and entertainment giants to other massive corporations, has written to the court to voice their support and lay out some hard, logistical reasons other than, "It's the right thing to do."

  8. Revenge Pornographer Demands Google Erase His Past; Is Human Embodiment of Tiny Violin

    He's particularly concerned about some unauthorized photos.

    Craig Brittain, the man who once boasted that his revenge porn site offered “a higher level of hatred" than its 'competitors' and who posted photos of over 1,000 people throughout his time as the owner of IsAnybodyDown.com, has filed a complaint against Google asking that "all unauthorized photos of me and other related information" be taken down.

  9. Allow Neil Gaiman to Serenade You With the Honeyed Tones of His Song, “I Google You”

    *immediately goes to google someone*

    If you've never heard author Neil Gaiman speak, I highly recommend doing so should you get the chance. He's a wonderful orator, but as it turns out, that pleasantness translates to his singing voice as well (even if he doesn't think so). Gaiman and Amanda Palmer performed a special one-night show in Florida on Valentine's Day during which they performed his "I Google You," a different kind of sorrowful love song for the digital age.

  10. Britain Will Soon Change Its Traffic Laws to Account for Robot Cars

    What, no one else thinks of Putt Putt when we talk about self-driving vehicles?

    Robots are really great at a lot of different tasks. What they're not so good at yet, however, is critical thinking and interpreting rules less than literally. That's why an official review of the British traffic laws will suggest that the entire system be rewritten so that the future self-driving cars we'll all one day own won't cost us hours of commute time while they painstakingly wait at every intersection for the optimal time to turn.

  12. The View-Master Is Back With Virtual Reality Powered by Your Phone

    Let's party like it's 1939.

  13. Get Free Cloud Storage From Microsoft and Google—102GB of It

    I just need some space.

    Free stuff! Well, space. 102GB worth of space. But it's free! Provided to you by Microsoft and Google.

  14. Google Now Serving Fact-Checked Medical Search Results

    So 99% of medical searches will just return links for hypochondria, then?

    There's a lot of great, in-depth illness information on the Internet, but there's also a lot of weirdos who hate any medical advice more modern than "I'll need to check your humours." Now Google will help all the hypochondriacs (and actual sick people whose doctors may or may not be failing them) out there with fact-checked medical search results.

  18. Here’s How to Turn on Chrome’s Mute Button for Obnoxious Audio Tabs

    Say, for instance, if you have auto-playing ads that you can't find...

    One of the handiest features of Google Chrome is the speaker icon that appears on any tab playing audio, but sometimes the offending page widget does too good a job hiding itself, and you don't want to just close the whole tab. Prepare to have your Internet experience revolutionized: You can easily change that icon to a functional mute button.

  19. No, Your Phone Doesn’t Have a Virus; Those App Store Redirects Come From Difficult-to-Stop Ads

    We're sorry. We're so sorry.

    We here at The Mary Sue can sympathize with annoying ad behavior from autoplaying, unmuted video to redirecting users to other sites entirely. Mobile browser users with Android and iOS devices have been getting app store redirects for a long time, and though the problem is difficult to stop, it isn't cause for concern—just annoyance.

  20. Google Is Now Making Human Skin; at Least That Means They Won’t Take Yours

    For rad Google Doodle tattoos?

    Google has begun manufacturing human skin for research at its Life Sciences facility, and it actually has nothing to do with designing disguises for the cyborgs that walk among us.
