Google recently announced its newest project, Google Plus, which hopes to make the search giant a competitive social network. Previous attempts to challenge Facebook and Twitter have fallen to the wayside, with both Google Wave and Buzz flopping. Will Google Plus and its privacy oriented sharing finally make Google a social success? In other news, the mobile operating system Android is now being activated nearly 500,000 times a day. Google’s strategy of deploying Android on as many devices as possible is the main reason for its exponential growth. As if half a million devices a day wasn’t enough, Android continues to grow over 4% week-over-week. And finally, a new study shows that within this decade, we will create fifty times more data than we previously had. Findings also show that while the amount of data we create is vast, the data being created about us is even larger.
