As usual in the end of each month we post a list of the most noticeable technology company acquisitions.
The first day of March was rich in M&As. The first name of the company is those who acquired and the second one is who was acquired correspondingly. Let’s start with e-Zest Solutions.
I finally realized that Google Docs isn't the best note-taking app. It's too clunky for quickly jotting down notes about a project or interesting things I come across throughout the day.
So, I went to the Chrome Web Store and searched for a solution that was simple, easy to access, and had only the features I needed (syncing and sign-in were not important). Skeuomorphic designs were immediately disqualified.
Google has announced its digital assistant Google Cloud Search for G Suite users, previously made available as preview named Springboard, which makes use of "machine intelligence to provide a unified search experience across G Suite."

The dark art of search engine optimization could be next in line for software-powered automation — potentially putting hundreds of thousands of ‘SEO consultants’ out of a job.

Google Translate could already translate Japanese text into English from a captured photo, but now the app skips a step, letting you point your camera at signs, menus and other things that might contain printed Japanese words, and get a translation to English on the fly (and vice versa). The feature is available via Word Lens in both the iOS and the Android versions of the Google Translate app.

New Delhi, Oct 5 (IANS) Google’s newly-launched artificial intelligence-powered premium device Pixel will impact Apple’s iPhone ecosystem and even Samsung’s flagship premium device Note 7 to an extent, experts have said.

Google has refocused its autonomous driving efforts away from developing its own car without a steering wheel and pedals, according to a report from The Information.
