Google’s Self-Driving car reaches 300,000 miles with no accidents

Are you dreaming about that day where you can take a snooze while driving to work? Read a book, when you get stuck in traffic? With that in mind, Google has read your thoughts and is pushing its car program to new levels. With a car driving over 300,000 miles without an accident is a horrific task. Therefore, Google think it’s so safe, that their willing to give it to some employees for their commute to work. Usually this car would require two people or more in the car while driving, for safe keeping. In all things considered I still wouldn’t want to hop into one of those cars, yet. Would you?

Google even faster now, makes every second count with PageSpeed Service

From time and time again, humans have always preferred taking shortcuts, so Google has naturally assumed that we would want to, too. In result of that, Google has created a new browsing experience. It works by letting Google download a website’s webpages and then supplies it when somebody clicks on its search results. From now on, every site that signs up for PageSpeed Service will load on your screen about 2 seconds faster (statistically). This might not sound much but when you multiply that by a billion plus users, Google will probably be saving thousands of years of our time. Just remember that this is still in beta form but if you own your own website and DNS you can sign up here.
