[Update 5:00 PM ET: Apple claims that the problem has been resolved] The App Stores currently suffering from an issue with the search functionality, which is making it extremely difficult for users to find specific apps they want to acquire by name in some instances. Searches performed in both the iOS App Store and the Mac App Store are apparently failing to show up listings for some major apps in its search results, instead directing users to other apps in the store that may not be as useful as the intended app.
SoundHound, the company behind the music recognition app of the same name, has finally released its attempt at improving voice search as an iOS app, taking on Siri and Google Voice Search. Hound attempts to improve upon its main competition by using natural language processing and giving the option for users to be highly specific with their search queries, narrowing down the list of results to find exactly what the user wants.
Google is going to address the concerns of European regulators about its compliance with an EU ruling over the "Right to be Forgotten," by extending it to other search pages. Google has confirmed it will start removing specific search results requested by EU citizens from all of its regional searches around the world, but only if the searches are started by people physically located within the European Union itself.
Not only is there a Bing app for iOS, but it is now Bing 6.0. That's a lot of revisions for a product you may not even have realized exists -- but then that could be the life story of search engine service Microsoft Bing. While Google remains a verb, and Bing barely enters the language, Microsoft has been improving it and this new version is very good.
Stop where you are and look around for us. We had a "For You" recommended playlist right here, and it's gone. You check under the couch, we'll try to remember where we last saw it. While we are it, could you also tell us where in the world '80s Movie Hits volumes one or two are? The other day "For You" lobbed volume three at us, and we rather like it. In case you couldn't tell, we've got a spot of frustration with Apple Music sometimes -- but we also, mostly, have a solution.
The French government's data protection agency has rejected Google's appeal against a request to apply the "Right to be Forgotten" to all search results, not just European results. The Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) is now threatening to fine Google for non compliance, with the possibility of the search giant paying €300,000 ($335,000) at first, potentially increasing as time goes on to a maximum of 5 percent of global operating costs.
Twitter is really all about what's happening now, yet it's become a news source -- and it's been going since 2006: it's not like all human life is there, but it's close. With so many tweets and so many users tweeting about so many things, though, it's the most wide-ranging yet also most impenetrable mine of research information. Enter Myne 1.0.1 which intends to uncover what you need.
Google is facing pressure to implement its "Right to be Forgotten" measures on all sites around the world, instead of just the European versions. French data protection regulator CNIL has demanded that Google allows European users to request the removal of certain search results in all global Google search sites in the next 15 days, or face the prospect of having sanctions imposed on the company's activities.
The OnePlus One is now available to buy without an invitation, the manufacturer has revealed. Plagued by restricted invitation-only sales since its launch one year ago, and only recently selling freely in weekly 24-hour sales, OnePlus has lifted the restriction entirely, allowing users to order the smartphone whenever they want. The company won't be shutting out invitations completely, as the upcoming OnePlus 2 will also initially sell via invitations.
You've got to really need to find something before you'll bother going away from Google, and you've really, really got to need to find it before you'll spend money on a search utility. Yet don't see this as a reason why DevonAgent Pro must be a niche product, or see it as telling that this app satisfies those most demanding searches and searchers. It's a $50 utility for your Mac that does just do searches, but it does them through an intelligent and supremely customizable set of tools.
