Not exactly Jobsonian, Google launched their annual developers' conference, Google I/O, with a marathon 3 1/2 keynote address. Leo says there was no new hardware announced, not even from Motorola. There was an announcement that there will be a Nexus version of the Samsung Galaxy SIV soon running the pure Google experience. ANd they they barely talked about Google glass, which they just launched. They did, however, have plenty to say about Google+, which Leo says shows that Google is all in on their social network.
Billy has been getting calls from his customers saying that his website is infected. Leo says that can be a serious warning. When Google crawls websites, they make a note if a site is infected and redirect visitors to a warning message. If he's running Wordpress and doesn't keep it up to date, it can easily be breached and infected. Even plugins are vulnerable. He should be sure to have his website updated completely. He should get his site cleaned up, which may take a good SysAdmin. Once Google sees it's cleaned, it could take a few days or even weeks before they take the warning down.
There are sites that are dedicated to funding things, such as GoFundMe.com that he could try.
Mike actually already has the site created, and just wants to host a sitemap so that Google will be able to find and crawl his site faster. Leo says to look at Google's webmaster tools, which explains how Google creates their search results. He can create his site map in an XML file and then submit that to Google. Godaddy has probably already stored it somewhere for him and he just needs to provide that link to Google.
John wants to be able to allow friends to add photos to his albums on Google+. Leo says he isn't sure if that can be done at the moment because Google is in transition at the moment.
One thing he can do is create a public folder on PicasaWeb. Unfortunately, that's going to end soon, which is too bad because Picasaweb is full of features that Google+ doesn't have.
Scott loves the Google Nexus IV, but it's GSM only with T-Mobile. He's not much a T-Mobile fan, and would like to move it to another network. Leo says that since it's GSM, it only would be able to work with a carrier that uses GSM, which is AT&T and T-Mobile. Verizon and Sprint use a different technology called CDMA.
Google created the Nexus to be a developer phone, and as such, it may only be designed to work with T-Mobile. So he may just be out of luck there. It's a real shame too, because the Nexus phones are really popular. People really want vanilla Android.
Vincent has a service area business, noticed a significant drop in business, and discovered that it was a problem with Google. Apparently, when Google activated Google+ and migrated data from Google Maps, a lot of these businesses had been deleted. Unfortunately, he has found that Google is apologetic but doesn't seem to have a solution. Now his business doesn't show up in Google Places anymore. This is a big issue because Leo says if a business isn't showing up in Google, it pretty much doesn't exist online.
Tom says that cellphone use while driving is bad and that we're overdue to have technology that can prevent accidents by applying breaks automatically (with infrared rangefinding technology). Leo says that autonomous vehicle technology exists now, and many companies use LIDAR to determine if a car is drifting, and adaptive cruise control to slow down if the car gets too close.
Barney wants to open the rolodex file he has saved in his old Seiko Smart Label Printer on his Google Nexus 7. Leo says to use the software that the file printer comes with and export it to a standard file format, like comma separated values (CSV). Once he has that file, he can then import them into Google Contacts. Leo also says to go into Google contacts and edit the imported contacts. Then, once done, it'll automatically sync to the Nexus 7.
