Project Loon’s technology & the power of moonshot thinking

This video about Project Loon’s technology is truly an example of what Astro Teller, Google’s Captain of Moonshot Thinking, evangelises day to day (from SXSW to the Big Tent to Cannes, he’s been doing a good job with that this year, if you ask me).

 

While on that, Google Maps is now accepting invitations for the new Maps. I saw a preview yesterday and it looks amazing – it’s pretty clear that no one can touch Google in that department for the time-being.

I also saw Google Voice Search for Chrome in action, announced at I/O earlier this year – and it looks quite radical too.

They’re doing some good stuff, controversies notwithstanding.
