Google’s “My Account” Privacy Hub, The Growth of Wearables, and More

google_privacy

Google lets you see what they see about you, who’s leading the wearables race, and crazy display technology. This week in Five for Wednesday.

  1. Google has made it a little easier to find out exactly what information about you is collected when you use Google Maps, YouTube, Gmail, and Google Search. The Verge has a nice summary; see your own information (and change it!) here.
  2. The LA Times reports that the wearables market grew by 200% in the first quarter of 2015, led by Motorola Apple Fitbit.
  3. LG claims to have an 18″ display that rolls up like paper. The diameter of the rolled screen? A scant 2.3 inches.
  4. You know what else is small? SanDisk’s new 128GB thumb drive, which is smaller than a dime. And somebody already beat me to the joke: it’s not a thumb drive, it’s a thumbnail drive.
  5. Finally, it’s not necessarily high tech, but $149 can buy you a “Room in a Box,” comprising a desk, chair, and bed made from brightly colored, water-resistant, foldable, and reusable cardboard. You might not want to furnish a house with it, but staging a condo? That might work.
