+ - It's free, but it's broken->

Submitted by DougDot
DougDot (966387) writes "About six months ago I noticed that one of the portfolios I was tracking using Google Finance Portfolio suddenly started reporting wrong historical data for nearly all of the equities in the portfolio. I clicked on the "Report a problem" link at the bottom of the page and used the form to send off a detailed description of the problem off to Google."

+ - Delicious Raspberry Pi->

Submitted by DougDot
DougDot (966387) writes "I'm sure most folks have heard about the Raspberry Pi by now, and maybe some of you are curious if this $35 ARM-based computer is worth anything more than just a digital toy to play around with. I know I was, so this last weekend I finally took a day to build one and see what it could do."

+ - Google is going Puritan on us->

Submitted by DougDot
DougDot (966387) writes "In three days, Google's Blogger will begin to delete scores of blogs that have existed since 1999 on Monday under its vague new anti-sex-ad policy purge.

On Wednesday night at around 7pm PST, all Blogger blogs marked as "adult" were sent an email from Google's Blogger team.

The email told users with "adult" blogs that after Sunday, June 30, 2013, all adult blogs will be deleted if they are found to be "displaying advertisements to adult websites" — while the current Content Policy does not define what constitutes "adult" content.

To say that Twitter ignited with outrage would be an understatement. Blogger users are panicked and mad as hell at Google."

+ - What is Evil?->

Submitted by
DougDot
DougDot writes "Which sort of brings up the question: is it evil of Google to sell product which they know is defective, and to do so for months without telling us? And then to sort of, unannounced-like slip out a software release that silently fixes things?"

+ - Persistant wifi and bluetooth bugs in Android 4.2->

Submitted by
DougDot
DougDot writes "Lately, it seems all the news sources have been soft-balling Google regarding the Nexus 4, the Nexus7, and the 10. And especially with regard to wifi and bluetooth bugs that crept into the Adnroid distribution with version 4.2.

Well, as it turns out, the masses are not happy. Not happy at all. Read on to find out why."

+ - This Is Not A Story About The Google Nexus 4 Phone->

Submitted by
DougDot
DougDot writes "This isn't a story about the Google Nexus 4 phone, nor is it about the fact that there have been problems with its wifi and bluetooth operation that have persisted since the initial sales of the phone last November.

It is a story about Google's astonishing apparent indifference to the failings of the phone, and to its estimated customer base of ~400,000 users."
