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.
Owners of Android devices have a simple way of finding their misplaced smartphone, by performing a Google search. Similar to Android Device Manager's tool for finding a lost device, a search for the phrase "Find My Phone" with the owner logged in to their Google account will load up a card showing the device's location on a map, with the added option of setting the phone to ring at its loudest setting to help with finding it nearby.
Searching for old emails on your iPhone used to be enough of a pain that you just didn't bother. Worse, it was also regularly pointless, as the search would take forever and often fail to find something you knew was there. It was bad enough that not only did you get into the habit of waiting until you were back at your Mac or occasionally re-forwarding mails so they'd be at the top of your inbox, you also forgot that things change. Things have changed. Since iOS 7, search is immensely improved. It's still not perfect, but there are ways to work around its remaining issues. This Pointers tutorial is specifically about using Apple Mail with an iCloud account.
Google has updated its Knowledge Graph, used to provide extra details in search results for common subjects, with health-related information. Vetted by a team of doctors at Google and the Mayo Clinic for accuracy, the new cards will bring up details for common health conditions, including symptoms, treatments, commonality, if it is contagious, and other relevant points, along with illustrations for some conditions.
