Google Daily Searches Visualised

If you have ever wondered what Google’s searches would look like mapped onto a world globe, Google has launched a new service, The Search Globe. Which visualises searches from one day, and shows the language of the majority of queries in an area in different colours.

This Google Daily Search Globe visualisation was developed and designed by the Google Data Arts Team using WebGL, which is used to generate fast 3D graphics using your computers hardware,. As it has been developed in WebGL you need a WebGL-enabled browser, such as Google’s Chrome, to see the Globe.

Amazon Updates Its Cloud Player To Stream Music To iOS Devices

Amazon has rolled out a new update over the weekend to its Cloud Player music storage service which now allows its player client to be used to stream music to iOS devices over the web. iOS users had previously been left out of the support loop when Amazon released their new cloud streaming music service, named the ‘Amazon Cloud Player’, which beat both Google and Apple to the music cloud.

Even though the service is now playable through the devices its still a little awkward and not quite as fluid as someone would have liked. There has also been no mention of any native application being developed by Amazon for  iOS devices, and it would be interesting to see how Apple would react if one were ever to be created.
