With less than 20 days until Christmas, people are flooding 5th Avenue in New York to get a glimpse at their legendary holiday window displays.

It happens every year, and every year you have to push through a warm tourists screaming at each other. It's as if these families don't actually want to come to this thing because they spend the whole time screaming at each other. It's very unpleasant. Thankfully, like most things, technology is here to save us from spending time with other people.

You don’t want this to happen again, do you?

Of course not, which is why Google came up with Window Wonderland.

With Window Wonderland, Google allows you to take a virtual tour through the window displays. Finally, you have the chance to actually enjoy the streets of New York without getting splashed with mud by a passing cab. You can choose the experience, either let your mouse do the walking or put your phone three inches from your face and enjoy the VR experience. You can check out the South Park characters at Barney's or the dolls over at the American Girl store. It's really however you like celebrating the holidays.

Have you ever been so hungry that you can only speak in pictures? Have you ever been so hungry that you can type the full word “hamburger”?

Well, you’re time is here, because as of now, you can search Google using emojis — with a few caveats. It’s not like you can just go to Google and put in an emoji burger. You have to do it through Google’s Twitter page. Simply Tweet an emoji to @Google, and they’ll respond with a corresponding search result. It’s that easy.

So basically, if you want to see what the best burger is in town, simply send them a burger emoji, and they send back some suggestions.

Mashable says, “Google says the feature will work with over 200 different emoji for food, sites and activities near you. It's also promising some ‘easter eggs.’”

This news is both good and scary, depending on your feelings regarding the peach and eggplant emojis. Proceed with caution.

Today’s going to be rough for everyone, so why not block out the horror of your weird uncle with some classic gaming? Solitaire, the world’s loneliest card adventure, has always been better on the computer, and now Microsoft has delivered a holiday treat a few months early.

Also, starting today, you download Microsoft’s classic “Microsoft Solitaire Collection" for iOS and Android, according to The Verge. The game, which has been on Window for more than 25 years, includes Klondike, Spider, FreeCell, Pyramid, and Tripeaks. Best of all, it’s free.There’s a “Premium Edition” that costs $1.99 a month and includes an ad-free version along with daily challenges and game boosts. But for those strapped for cash, this is the perfect way to ignore your family.

Don’t want to download another app, simply go to Google, type in Solitare and start playing. It’s the best.

As soon as your family decides to bring up the election, you can zone out into your phone and shake quietly to yourself.

As the numbers continue to pour in, and it becomes clear that more people in America wanted Hillary Clinton to be president than wanted Donald Trump to be, those who voted with a majority of America are trying to expedite the president elect’s removal. But they aren’t turning law books, they’re turning to Google. Not Bing. Not Ask Jeeves. Google. Because when you need to find out how to impeach a president, accept no substitutes.

According to Metro, searches for “how to impeach a president” have surged by almost 5,000 percent (4,850 percent, to be exact). Meanwhile, online petitions to impeach Trump have begun to spring up and have received thousands of signatures, including one that has collected 13,322 names.

So it’s clear, this is a subject of major public interest, but what do the experts say? Well, thanks to Trump University, the public might have a case.

The Daily Mail reports:

“University of Utah Law professor Christopher Peterson said he found evidence to charge Trump with fraud and racketeering — felonies within state and federal law.

“'In the United States, it is illegal for businesses to use false statements to convince consumers to purchase their services,' Mr Peterson said. 'The evidence indicates that Trump University used a systemic pattern of fraudulent representations to trick thousands of families into investing in a program that can be argued was a sham.’

'Fraud and racketeering are serious crimes that legally rise to the level of impeachable acts.’”

Can you impeach a president before they take the oath? I'm asking for a friend.

Google is investing "hundreds of thousands of dollars" in virtual-reality (VR) films and programs they want to put exclusively on their new hybrid store/software service called Daydream, which will debut in a few weeks.



They have quietly recruited web and YouTube stars like the Donal twins, Justine Ezarik, and more, and partnered with video game producers and sports leagues for the biggest VR initiative they've ever invested in.



Your Android will get a push rolled out on Monday to support Daydream, so we will soon get a chance to evaluate it for ourselves. I know i'm pretty psyched to try out being a first-person VR dino-killer in Island 359.

In a WIN for every internet user, everywhere, Google has announced that they are going to rank sites that use pop-ups and interstitials further down the results page. They want to discourage behaviors where the content isn't "easily accessible."

The changes will go into effect next January, so in the meantime, try not to throw your computer out the window because of idiot new policies like Facebook's new one, forcing autoplay videos in its iOS and Android apps.


So, in the meantime, just follow the instructions above to keep your sanity.


google april fools minions Google's April Fools Day Prank Was a Sensational Failure

Google has cancelled their April Fools day prank after it backfired. It turns out that if you install a "mic drop" button which mutes the email conversation and sends a GIF on an email platform that 900 million people use for personal AND PROFESSIONAL reasons, not all of them will like it.


via Gmail

First of all, they automatically sent a 'Minions' GIF, and some people said it sent the GIF even when they pressed the normal send button.  To make matters worse, a number of people who accidentally pressed the "mic drop" button were angry and some even said they lost their job or a job opportunity.  

Google updated the prank announcement with this statement:

UPDATE: Well, it looks like we pranked ourselves this year. 😟 Due to a bug, the Mic Drop feature inadvertently caused more headaches than laughs. We’re truly sorry. The feature has been turned off. If you are still seeing it, please reload your Gmail page.
