Disconnect- Google Chrome App That Protects Privacy

I saw this Google Chrome Extension App on The Gadget Show on TV last night, its meant to block websites and 3rd party sites from tacking you and helps stop hackers. It also apparently uses less bandwidth and speeds up page loading. I’ve just installed it and will test it out, but it has very good reviews so I expect it to work well.

Have a look at the extension for yourself here.

Do a Google search of this:

y=2 sqrt(-abs(abs(x)-1)*abs(3-abs(x))/((abs(x)-1)*(3-abs(x))))(1+abs(abs(x)-3)/(abs(x)-3))sqrt(1-(x/7)^2)+(5+0.97(abs(x-.5)+abs(x+.5))-3(abs(x-.75)+abs(x+.75)))(1+abs(1-abs(x))/(1-abs(x))),-3sqrt(1-(x/7)^2)sqrt(abs(abs(x)-4)/(abs(x)-4)),abs(x/2)-0.0913722(x^2)-3+sqrt(1-(abs(abs(x)-2)-1)^2),(2.71052+(1.5-.5abs(x))-1.35526sqrt(4-(abs(x)-1)^2))sqrt(abs(abs(x)-1)/(abs(x)-1))+0.9

Valve ‘Console’ Is Actually Like Google Glass

The rumour of a Valve ‘Console’ that has been floating round for the past couple of weeks is apparently actually a set of glasses, similar to the Google Glass project.

When Michael Abrash started working for Valve, he expected the higher-ups to hand him a pile of work and tell him to hop to it. They didn’t. Instead, he was told to figure out the most valuable thing he could do for the company, and then do it. So, Abrash wound up kicking off an in-house R&D project for wearable computers, and according to a recent blog post, is looking to expand his research team. More than me-too mice and gamepads, indeed. Abrash is quick to put a lid on rumors of “Steam glasses,” however, and warns readers not to expect any big reveals at E3 — this is just an “initial investigation into a very interesting and promising space,” he says, and is more “research than development.” Rearing to give Google’s Project Glass a run for its money? Or maybe you’re just itching for a detailed narrative of employee and employer? Either way, you’ll find what you’re looking at the source link below.

It looks like that market is going to heat up over the next few years as they develop them further!

8-bit Google Map Tower Defense Game

Following on from the awesome April Fools Day 8-bit Google Maps someone managed to take a copy of the code, before Google removed it, and then turned it into a tower defence game. The game is pretty simple, but at least you get to explore the maps more.

Check out the game on Maps TD.

There is also a mini quest game made by Keir Clarke.
