Google Maps goes interplanetary, adds Pluto, Venus, and a bunch of moons

%name Google Maps goes interplanetary, adds Pluto, Venus, and a bunch of moons by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

When it comes to maps, Google has already conquered Earth. Whether you need a bird’s eye view of your neighborhood or a street-level glimpse at a storefront half the world away, Google can deliver it in seconds. So it’s no wonder that after doing pretty much everything it possibly can to map our home planet, it set its sights skyward, and today the company announced it has added a total of 12 new worlds to Google Maps.

The all-new destinations include a whole host of moons scattered around our Solar System, including Europa, Titan, and the frigid Enceladus. Also on the list are the nearby Venus and the once-planet Pluto, and you can explore all of them with nearly the same freedom as the more remote areas of the Earth. You’ll have to excuse the lack of Street View support for now, but Google is probably working on that as we speak.

%name Walking Dead star teases ‘Die Hard’ level action in epic season 8 by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

The eighth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead premieres on October 22nd, but I can’t say I’m too excited about it, after last season. However, fans should know that the action should pick up significantly in the upcoming season, at least compared to the first part of season 7.

In fact, one of the Walking Dead stars compares the first few episodes of season 8 with Die Hard, when it comes to action.

The best Windows laptop just got even better

%name The best Windows laptop just got even better by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

For the last year, Razer’s Blade Stealth has been the laptop of choice for any MacBook Pro refugees looking for more ports. Razer isn’t big on waiting for updates, and today, the Blade Stealth is getting its third upgrade of 2017.

The laptop now comes with Intel’s newest processor, the 8th-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 8550U. That might sound like a tiny spec bump that’s not worth writing about, but Intel’s latest generation of chips promises to be something special for laptops.

%name You can watch America’s giant fighting robot take on Japan tonight, and wonder where we all went wrong by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

It’s 2017, the world is in utter chaos, we don’t have flying cars or a cure for the common cold, but we do have giant fighting robots. Where did we go wrong? It doesn’t matter, obviously, because we have fighting robots now, and you can watch them battle tonight via Twitch. The US-based MegaBots Inc will be taking on their Japanese counterparts, Suidobashi Heavy Industry in a world-first mega-bot battle that has been brewing for years, and nobody really know what’s going to happen.

The bots, which have been designed, prototyped, upgraded, and finalized for battle, are some seriously intimidating pieces of machinery. MegaBots’ creation, called Eagle Prime, stands an incredible 16 feet tall and weighs in at 12 tons, while the Japanese bot, called Kuratas, weighs in at over four tons and has a lower profile. This is going to be amazing.

Of course Alphabet is working on a drone-powered burrito delivery service

%name Of course Alphabet is working on a drone powered burrito delivery service by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Everyone gets cravings for tasty, tasty Mexican food every once in a while (or every few days, if you’re me), but leaving your couch is just such a hassle these days. I mean, you can order caskets on Amazon Prime and have them delivered to your door, so leaving the house for something as trivial as food is just plain absurd, right? Alphabet feels the same way, so they’re launching a pilot program with a popular Mexican food chain in Australia to test the feasibility of delivering burritos via drone.

The chain, Guzman y Gomez (or GYG for short), was approached by the Project Wing team, which is part of X (formerly Google X), and resides under the larger Alphabet umbrella. The Project Wing group proposed a food delivery service using the group’s own drones, and GYG jumped at the opportunity.

AT&T’s strategy to beat cordcutting has backfired

%name AT&T’s strategy to beat cordcutting has backfired by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Things aren’t good in the land of Big Cable. Cord-cutting is happening faster than anyone could have predicted, which is ending three decades of lucrative cable TV profits. Millions of consumers are cutting the cord every year, and younger customers aren’t signing up for cable in the first place.

Instead, cable is being replaced by a mix of cheap streaming services (Netflix) and more expensive live TV streaming services. AT&T actually has one of the best streaming services around, DirecTV Now. But that’s not helping it much against the onslaught of cord-cutting, and analysts suspect it’s all AT&T’s fault.
