Handout of an artist's rendering of the proposal to re-develop part of Google Headquarters North Bayshore campus in Mountain ViewGoogle Inc submitted plans on Friday for a vastly expanded headquarters at the Silicon Valley city where the tech giant is based, presenting a bucolic vision of movable structures to be built under curving and translucent canopies. The submission of the plan to the City Council in Mountain View, California, which the company chose for its headquarters 15 years ago, marks the first step in what city officials describe as a long review process. The new headquarters would give the Internet company the room for an additional 10,000 employees, compared to the 20,000 Google staffers that currently work in the city, a Google spokeswoman said. Google's blueprint for new headquarters in the city's North Bayshore district has gathered widespread attention because the design is seen as architecturally innovative.


File photograph of Oracle Corp headquarters Redwood CityBy Shelby Sebens PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Oracle America Inc, the software giant in charge of developing Oregon's failed health exchange website, has filed suit against five former staff and campaign advisers to the state's former governor, saying they worked behind the scenes to kill the site for political reasons, court documents showed. The company also gave notice to state administrators on Thursday, the same day it filed suit in Multnomah County Circuit Court, that it might file similar claims against former Governor John Kitzhaber and his former chief of staff, Mike Bonetto. The lawsuit says Kitzhaber's staffers and advisers, who did not work for Cover Oregon, "improperly influenced" the decision to shutter the site and then blamed Oracle to defuse the political consequences.     Named in the lawsuit are Kitzhaber's former campaign manager Patricia McCaig, consultants Kevin Looper and Mark Wiener, former business policy director Scott Nelson and former spokesman Tim Raphael.


Logo of Deutsche Telekom AG in BonnBy Leila Abboud, Harro Ten Wolde and Julia Fioretti PARIS (Reuters) - Europe's big telecom firms are back to rude financial health after years of poor results and regulatory pressure, drawing crowds of new investors and protests from rivals who worry the formerly state-owned companies may rebuild their monopolies. Germany's Deutsche Telekom and Spain's Telefonica have predicted that revenues will grow this year, while France's Orange and Norway's Telenor have promised higher future dividends, a major motivation for investors in the sector. The renaissance is a marked shift from the past five years in which the sector's sales fell steadily because of regulation ending various types of mobile fees and tough competition from cable operators such as Liberty Global and low-cost players like France's Iliad .


The logo of Japan's biggest mobile phone operator NTT DoCoMo Inc. is seen at its shop in TokyoBy Yoshiyasu Shida TOKYO (Reuters) - NTT Communications Corp is in talks to acquire German data center provider e-shelter for about 100 billion yen ($836 million), according to a source familiar with the matter. An acquisition of e-shelter by Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Communications is the latest in the NTT Corp's overseas expansion due to a dwindling home market. NTT bought South African IT firm Dimension Data for 382 billion yen ($3.2 billion) in 2010, followed by takeover deals with a combined worth of 85.5 billion yen ($715.42 million) of two U.S. ...


By Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House released draft legislation on Friday that would give consumers more control over how the trail of data they leave behind them on the internet is used, stored and sold. The 24-page "discussion draft" on data privacy immediately sparked sharp reaction from the technology industry, which said the proposal would hurt innovation, and also from privacy advocacy groups that said it did not go far enough. President Barack Obama has made cyber security a major focus in the wake of high-profile hacks at companies such as Sony Pictures Anthem Inc and Target Corp. Obama has also proposed legislation to help the government and private sector more readily share cyber attack data, a new national standard requiring companies to tell consumers about data breaches within 30 days, and new protections for student data. The data privacy bill would codify a voluntary "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights" the White House created in 2012.

Apple CEO Tim Cook stands in front of a screen displaying the IPhone 6 during a presentation at Apple headquarters in Cupertino(Reuters) - Apple Watch will replace your car keys and its battery will last the whole day, Apple Inc's Chief Executive Tim Cook told the Telegraph in an interview. The watch is designed to replace car keys and the clumsy, large fobs that are now used in many vehicles, Cook told the newspaper. Its battery will last the whole day, and will not take as long to charge as an iPhone, the report quoted Cook as saying. The rollout of the watch might pose a challenge for Apple's stores, which may involve "tweaking the experience in the store," the Telegraph said, citing Cook's conversation with the staff at Apple's Covent Garden store in London.

Co-pilot Brett McKenzie helps to look for objects during the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, from a Royal New Zealand Airforce P-3K2-Orion aircraft, off Perth, on April 13, 2014Australia on Sunday said it was trialling a "world first" system with Malaysia and Indonesia that increases the tracking of aircraft over remote oceans, allowing authorities to quickly react to abnormal situations such as the disappearance of MH370. The technology "can increase realtime monitoring should an abnormal situation arise," Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said. "In a world first, all three countries will trial a new method of tracking aircraft through the skies over remote oceanic areas," Truss told reporters. "Now this initiative adapts existing technology used by more than 90 percent of long-haul passenger aircraft and would see air traffic control able to respond more rapidly should an aircraft experience difficulty or deviation from its flight plan." The announcement came ahead almost a year after Malaysian Airlines MH370 went missing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board last March.

Seattle's police department has a YouTube channel for its body camera footageSince then, cities around the country, from New York to LA, have been testing body cameras in their police forces. Seattle's police department recently launched a YouTube channel to store its force's body camera footage for the public to view. Last year, the police department recruited hacker Timothy Clemans to create software that would redact images and elminate sound from the body camera footage, the Seattle Times reports. According to SPDBlotter, Clemans' software allowed the department to redact more than four hours of footage in just half a day, whereas the old method would've required days of work. The Seattle Times says the police department hopes to make the tools available to other cities for free in the near future.

HTC One M9 hands-on video leaks onto the internetHTC's new flagship, the One M9, will be anything but a surprise when it is announced tomorrow at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The video confirms everything we already knew: the M9 looks much like its predecessor, the HTC One M8, though the dual-camera setup has been scrapped and the front-facing camera has been beefed up with the company's "Ultrapixel" technology to take better selfies in low light. It seems the video was recorded during an embargoed press event, which tech companies often use to show off new devices to the media ahead of their official unveiling. Unfortunately for HTC, it appears this video accidentally found its way onto the internet.


The 2015 edition of the Mobile World Congress show that is about to kick off in Barcelona, Spain will likely be one of the best in recent years when it comes to new hardware announcements, as at least two hot mobile devices will be unveiled during the show — the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 each have their own special events on Sunday. But that’s not all that’s happening at MWC, as there will be plenty of interesting products on display coming from much smaller players.

7 things Net neutrality won't doOne day after the FCC adopted new Net neutrality rules, consumers are left scratching their heads about what it means for their Web-surfing experience. Has anything really changed?>


The annual Mobile World Congress trade show has been a bit stale in recent years, since most big smartphone vendors have been hosting their own dedicated press conferences to make key announcements. This year, however, that is most certainly not the case. Three of the biggest smartphones of the year — the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and HTC One M9 — will all be unveiled tomorrow, and BGR will be on hand reporting live as news breaks from Barcelona, Spain. DON’T MISS: Why Samsung fell There will be plenty of news pouring out of MWC 2015 on Sunday, but two events will undoubtedly be the highlights of the day. First, HTC is unveiling its new flagship HTC one M9

At $175,000, College of Wizardry will play three times in November.

Huawei ad mistakenly reveals new Android Wear smartwatchIt looks like Huawei has let the cat out of the bag with an advertisement placed at Barcelona's El Prat airport. The ad, first spotted by Android Central, makes it all but certain that the Chinese phonemaker will announce an Android Wear-powered smartwatch at Mobile World Congress next week. It's simply called the "Huawei Watch." According to the ad, the watch has "classic design and impeccable craftsmanship." There will be at least three different color and band options: silver with a matching silver metal bracelet, gold with a brown leather band, and a more casual black model. We'll likely hear much more about the Huawei Watch come tomorrow, March 1st, when things kick off at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.


I live in New York City and I can’t remember the last time I left my apartment just to take a stroll. If I walk out that door, it’s because I need food or because I have a previous obligation; work or social. The reason I’m not willingly going outdoors isn’t that I’m lazy (although that isn’t helping), it’s because the temperature has been hovering around freezing for nearly two months straight.
