Google announced two new messaging platforms at Google I/O: Allo, an upcoming application heavily integrated with Google Assistant, and Duo, a video app that showcases live footage from incoming calls before users even pick up.Google told Digital Trends that Hangouts will continue to be supported, and grow, and that every app serves a unique purpose.At the same time, all three new services will offer features not currently seen in Hangouts, some of which will overlap with the platform and others to varying degrees.Messenger is Google s SMS app for AndroidOn Android, users were briefly encouraged to combine Hangouts with their SMS messages, which created a sort of alternative to Apple s iMessenger.It also boasts integration with your phone s camera and photo library, but at its heart, Messenger is a smartphone app for old-school SMS and MMS messages.At one point, Google seemed so set on integrating Google Voice with Hangouts that it prompted users to forward their SMS messages to Hangouts instead of their phones.

Från början var de underdogs.Drivna och innovativa entreprenörer som utmanade både normer och storföretag genom att skapa banbrytande tjänster och lösningar.Nu slåss Moderaterna, Centern, Socialdemokraterna och alla andra om utrymmet och om att erbjuda bäst villkor till unga tillväxtföretag.Länge har startupsektorns mål varit att bli uppmärksammad som Sveriges framtida storindustri, som drivhjulet i en kreativ nation av smarta IT-bolag som tar över när de gamla jättarna inte längre är relevanta.Och givetvis skapar tech-bolagen fördelar för det omgivande samhället, i form av skatteintäkter och jobb.Där uppstår högljudda och intensiva protester från det omgivande samhället när fysisk infrastruktur parker, vägnät, busshållplatser, byggnader blir till komponenter i startupekonomins ekosystem.

Finland is not only heavily dependent on exports to the economy, but the export of our products are very sensitive to the growth of the global industry and world trade and trading partners to invest. outside Finland it seems to be an analyst, also to be afraid of the fact that Finland would follow Britain starting with the euro.

New APIs make it possible to programmatically create spreadsheets and presentationsAn integration between Salesforce and Google Slides makes it easier to create a presentation using data people already have.Google is updating the developer tools for its Docs productivity suite in an effort to make it easier for companies to integrate third-party applications with its presentation, spreadsheet and word processing software.In addition, Google also announced a new Slides API that will allow users to automatically populate slide decks with information from outside sources.That's useful for making sure that information shared within an organization using Google Sheets is up to date and accurate.For example, Trello is working on a feature that would let users take items stored on a "board" in its application and turn them into slides with a couple of clicks, without having to go through all the trouble of building a slide deck by hand.Security-conscious businesses might not be a fan of these integrations yet.

In a show of sensitivity carefully plotted nine month ago, the $2.2 billion Seattle-based sporting goods co-op is officially opting out of the shopping madness the day after Thanksgiving this year.In a touching email dispatched to its 5.5 million co-op members yesterday, the company pledged to keep its doors closed on Nov. 27, the day when all hell breaks loose at malls across America, sometimes fatally.That’s right: All 143 of REI’s retail locations, along with its headquarters and distribution centers, will not be open for business.The same goes for Thanksgiving Day, too.Gee willikers, Charlie Brown would be proud.Instead, they’ll shake a leg in the Great Outdoors to “reconnect with family and friends…” (We’re sure none of them will Netflix and chill, lazily riding out the tryptophan crash, like we can’t wait to do.)
