Google has released a JPEG encoder called ‘Guetzli’ that promises to shrink an image's file size by up to 35% without losing any perceivable picture quality.
Google Island: Techtopian vision a step closer
Hollywood has been selling the idea of technologically-advanced cities with air-roads, flying cars and hoverboards for years, but reality has proven significantly less exciting. This might actually be changing however. Sidewalk Labs (a member of the Google family) are seriously pitching the creation of a tech-city with efficient infrastructure and self-driving cars. (Yes, you read that right – a city with self-driving cars – "SOLD" right?!!) The idea is to house tens of thousands of people in this new city, where Google will be the landlord and technology will be king. You can read more on this here.
(Speaking of hoverboards...just when you'd given up on the idea, this happens!)
