Google Reportedly Working On A ‘Buy Now’ Button To Compete With Amazon by @mattsouthern

The latest in an ongoing battle between Amazon and Google sees the Wall Street Journal reporting that Google is preparing to take on Amazon with its own unique e-commerce solution. This solution would come in the form of a ‘buy now’ button that may be embedded right into the search engine results pages. The inclusion of a ‘buy now’ button next to product pages in search results would allow searchers to put the item in a shopping card and check out with a single click. To be sure, Google doesn’t intend to open its own warehouse filled with products. The sales […]

Google Working On Versions Of Its Services For Kids

Beginning next year, Google plans to begin working on versions of several popular products specially created for children aged 12 and younger, a company executive told USA Today. The products most likely to receive kid-friendly versions are the widely-used Google search, YouTube, and Chrome, Google VP Pavni Diwanji told the newspaper. 

The new effort is a part of Google’s recent child-focused initiative, including a virtual Maker Camp and its code-based Doodle 4 Google competition. 

With more and more children using Google at school and at home, the search engine giant says that their goals are to keep the Internet safer in hopes that the technology is used in a better way. Of course, it could also face a backlash from parents and others worried that the search giant might mine their children’s data.

Mozilla Is Working On A Firefox Browser Just For Developers

Mozilla has a new Firefox browser in the works that isn’t just for anyone. According to the company’s announcement Monday, this upcoming project will be “the first browser dedicated to developers.”

The new browser will integrate some of Mozilla’s most popular developer tools, WebIDE and the Firefox Tools Adapter. These tools are currently available for download to anyone on up-to-date versions of the Firefox browser, but the average user never touches them. This developer-specific browser will put them front and center.

“When building for the Web, developers tend to use a myriad of different tools which often don’t work well together,” the announcement on Mozilla’s blog reads. “This means you end up switching between different tools, platforms and browsers which can slow you down and make you less productive. So we decided to unleash our developer tools team on the entire browser to see how we could make your lives easier.”

Apart from a video that rehashes the words of the announcement, there isn’t a lot of information available yet on the new browser. However Mozilla promises that all will be revealed on its launch date, November 10.

Facebook Is Reportedly Working On A Secret Clone

Facebook may be sticking to its guns on its controversial “real names” policy that says people need to use their real identities when using the service, but it’s apparently not ruling out anonymity altogether. The company is creating a new app that will let people communicate anonymously with one another, according to a report from the New York Times

The social network prides itself on being central to identity on the Internet—outside applications even rely on it to confirm that users are who they say they are. Of course, not everyone abides by those rules; people regularly use fake or pseudonymous names on the service, and unless they’ve been reported, Facebook won’t necessarily know about them.

Facebook, however, is apparently experimenting with a new application that would mimic others like Secret and Whisper, which let people post anonymous words and photos to mobile apps for other people to see.

According to the Times:

[The point of the app] is to allow Facebook users to use multiple pseudonyms to openly discuss the different things they talk about on the Internet; topics of discussion which they may not be comfortable connecting to their real names.

Facebook recently announced Anonymous Login, a way for people to connect to apps without sharing their Facebook information with them. However, even though these apps can’t access a user’s Facebook data, Facebook will knows which apps people are using anonymously. It’s not yet clear how Facebook will connect with an anonymous app of its own, and whether it will collect data on users.

With Facebook’s track record of controversial privacy policies, the real question is whether people trust their secrets and anonymous posts to Facebook, especially since the company has prided itself on being a place for people to share and communicate by using their true identities. 

There are some things people don’t want even their friends to know.

(Failed) Attack Of The Clones

Considering Facebook’s streak of failure when trying to emulate other applications, a Whisper clone might not be a huge success. But it does suggest the social network realizes people don’t always want to be tied to their real names online.

Facebook is quick to jump on trends that it doesn’t have its hands in yet. It’s copied numerous features from Twitter, tried multiple times to clone Snapchat, and duplicated newsreaders like Flipboard when it launched Paper earlier this year. None of these clones appear to have taken off.

While Facebook might want people to share their dirty little secrets on an application that supposedly isn’t tied to their identity, people probably don’t want to ditch the apps they’re already using in favor of Facebook’s, which arrived at the party a little too late.

Facebook’s Secret or Whisper copycat would effectively be the anti-Facebook—no names, no identity, and no way of knowing who posts what. That could make it a Facebook users might like, though maybe not trust, a little bit more.

Instagram May Be Working On A Snapchat Competitor, Called Bolt by @mattsouthern

A select number of Instagram users have received notifications prompting them to download a new ‘one tap photo messaging’ app called Bolt. According to user reports, when tapping on the ‘Free’ button to download the app the link becomes a dead end. These notifications have since been removed, possibly indicating that Instagram accidentally leaked something they didn’t intend to. Facebook has been known to test unreleased features inside its Android and iOS app only to officially release them later. This is how Facebook typically introduces new features, but the company has also inadvertently leaked information before it was officially made […]
