LastPass, MyHeritage, Skybox, More: Sunday Buzz, July 13, 2014

Google has launched an “advisory council” page on the right to be forgotten. “Google launched a dedicated page on Friday to publicise its advisory council on the right to be forgotten case which invites the public to submit their comments on the ruling and how the search giant should apply it.”

Digg has relaunched News.me as a news alerting service. “…News.me is being rebranded as ‘Digg Deeper,’ and is designed to alert you to the best stories from your friends and trusted sources on Twitter. After logging in, Digg Deeper dives into your Twitter timeline to surface the links being shared the most, then offers these as a scrolling list on the Digg homepage, as real-time email alerts, and as mobile notifications from the Digg iOS app.” I would be very interested in this if Nuzzel wasn’t around.

From Mashable: 7 Things We’d Change About Google Hangouts.

Google-owned Skybox has released images from its new satellite. Wow!

More Google: Google has started rolling out desktop home screens for Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

YouTube is getting a new radio show on SiriusXM.

Search Engine Land tested Google vs. Bing on which search engine was better at showing movie show times. Guess who won? (Hint: not Google.)

MyHeritage is offering free access to WWI collections through the end of the month.

Wow, I had no idea that there was such a huge time lag between an article being pulled from a journal and then retracted in PubMed.

Were you disappointed the the number of Android devices that the Chromecast is initially supporting for mirrored screening? An experimental hack increases the number of Android devices available… but your device does have to be rooted.

I hope you never need this, but just in case: How to bypass and reset the password on most operating systems. The headline reads “every operating system” but that isn’t really the case…

LastPass apparently had a couple of security holes but doesn’t think anyone exploited them. Good morning, Internet…

I love your comments, I love your site suggestions, and I love you. Feel free to comment on the blog, or @ResearchBuzz on Twitter. Thanks!
