#Google just took its wearable project to a much smaller level -- like, your eyeball smaller...

Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:


And so we moved from #wearable to #insertable.


Google launches contact lens device to help those with diabetes to control the level of glucose in the blood. This opens a new horizon for sensors managed via wireless.


Thinking about many releases of new technological gadgets (like UP by Jawbone) #Health and well being are always on the cutting edge in technology.

Tour Builder | Social Web Innovation

Tour Builder | Social Web Innovation | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it
Tell your stories with photos, videos and rich text on Google Earth.
Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:

Tour Builder - Put your story on the map.


Google has launched the beta of TOUR BUILDER a mix of his various experiment such as City Tours.

This time it seems that they are focusing on storytelling, infact you can easly add on a placemark videos, photo and other content and then their payoff is "Put your story on the map".


In difference and unfortunately, with Tour Building I was unable to create a walking path, then the tour that I designed was not so precise.


Have you already tried? Do you have any feedback on this new product of Google?

istella | Italian search engine

istella | Italian search engine | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it

istella is a different search-engine that speaks italian language and culture, recognizes and describes the various aspects of Italian identity.


While the current search-engines explore only the web, istella can take advantage of the immense heritage of historical archives and books, encyclopedias, historical maps, national magazines and the content published by users, non-indexed so far.

Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:


The search engine is becoming increasingly sophisticated, semantic search, graph search by Facebook and the surprise that Google will pull out in a short time. In Italy after the case Volunia, there is a new search engine, a new star: istella


I was immediately fascinated when I saw as the page background a photo of Naples.


Who knows if the new search engine will be able to understand from the beginning, from the first access aspects familiar to us, or if Tiscali has created beautiful background of beautiful Italian cities?


Although it is easier to think of the second case for several reasons (Italian search engine, culture, beauty ...) I must say that I could easily believe also to the first case.

In any case I will try it soon


Which photography has appeared to you?

VP9 | The New Standard For Video Encoding?

VP9 | The New Standard For Video Encoding? | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it
Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:


Google has been working for some time to an open source compressor for high quality video and at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (Jan 7-10  2014) will present the new format VP9, which offers 4k video compatibility and optimization for Internet bandwidth consumption, ensuring a great flow with a band from 7mb.


Until now it was imposed as compressor the H264 format and soon to be released will be the version H265 that will support 4k video quality. 


VP9 is characterized by being free and open source and by its strategic alliances with leading hardware and software manufacturers including LG, Sony, Intel, Samsung, NVidia etc..


The further thing, not least, to imagine that VP9 might become the new standard format is that YouTube, of course, will adopt this format, and just at the CES will demonstrate streaming video using the new VP9.


H265 against VP9 : What will be the standard ?

A cosa assisteremo nel 2012?

A cosa assisteremo nel 2012? | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it

Il 2011 ci ha lasciato con un anno intensissimo di avvenimenti legati al mondo internet. E' stato veramente l'anno del boom dei social network. Facebook, Twitter, Google l'hanno fatta da padrone per il social networking, poi altre a seguire come Linkedin, Groupon, Zynga ecc. Per la Social Web Innovation e per business aggregato, aggiungo marchi come Apple, Samsung. Colossi dell'economia globale!

Per il 2012 Key4biz dice "...che al centro dell’attenzione ci saranno sicuramente l’HTML5, il nuovo set di standard che contribuirà a rendere i siti web più veloci ed eleganti, e il cloud computing.
Nel 2012, inoltre, il dibattito si concentrerà probabilmente anche sui potenziali effetti catastrofici di una cyber guerra: un attacco, o una serie di attacchi, volti a colpire il web e tutte le informazioni – commerciali, governative, private – veicolate online. "

La vera sfida Globale per questo 2012 secondo me sarà tra i due maxi player Apple e Google
