Google Glass is an electronic eye wear device that essentially is the ability to access Google and updates from your smartphone device through the computerized frames. While currently still in the stages of development and beta testing, Google Glass has already started making an impact on the development of new technologies and the way in which we are able to see things through another person’s eyes. When linked with a persons smartphone device, Glass enables one to send and receive text messages displaying the message in a small visual to the user; Glass also provides the sync ability to make calls, take photos, record videos, and provide navigation. As Glass is still within it’s beta testing and development stages the applications associated and current features are limited, but the possibilities for this device seem to be the main focus of Google and it’s developers before introducing Glass to the public consumer. Currently Glass has been making headlines, as Google reaches out to promote this new technology providing testers to Police Officers in New York, and to NBA teams, the purpose to help provide a wider means for the technology in development. (Stein, 2014)
When considering Glass, and the association of the Police or Emergency response teams one can consider the positive impacts Glass can provide such as development of applications compatible with the device to pull up a persons driver’s information, vehicle reports, background information providing a police officer with detailed information before engaging with an unknown driver, or persons. Positive impacts in the field of Emergency response systems include being able to pull up ones medical information and records, record vitals, and valuable information in the case of an emergency such as on the scene of an accident or a 911 response.

However, the major competition in the search engine industry stems from searches with in websites and apps that offer more than just searches, such as Amazon, Inc. and Facebook, Inc. For example, Facebook Inc.’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg articulated that the company’s assets could be used to compete with search engines. Facebook Inc. can compete with search engines by the website uniquely being positioned to answer questions people may have such as, what sushi restaurants my friends have been to recently and liked? These query-based searches that can be done on Facebook potentially offer consumer something they could not do anywhere else (Blystone, 2015).

...GOOGLE VERSUS MICROSOFT: CLASH OF THE TECHNOLOGY TITANS The growth and advancement in technology has continued to create competitions among its users. This case study between Google and Microsoft, two of the most prominent companies clearly illustrates this fact. The struggle continues to increase and fierce too as each day passes by. While Google has dominated the internet, Microsoft has dominated the desktop. Comparing the business strategies and business models of Google and Microsoft, one can clearly see the sharp dichotomy and why this conflict will shape our technological future. “Google began as one Search Company among many. But the effectiveness of its PageRank search algorithm and online advertising services, along with its ability to attract the best and brightest minds in the industry, have catapulted Google to global prominence. The company’s extensive infrastructure allows them to offer the fastest search speeds and a variety of Web-based products” (cf Lauderion MIS Pg 253). Google simply put has pioneered cloud computing.

...Introduction Google is a company that specializes in internet search and online advertising, and an important player in the knowledge-based services industry. Since its very beginnings, this company has focused on innovation and new ways of doing things more efficiently and effectively, and it has paid off for it. Its Human Resources (HR) practices are no exception either. Under the motif “best place to work for”, Google has become one of the best employers to work for, and has won numerous awards and listings from the best industry analysts. It attracts people from diverse backgrounds with its unorthodox methods of rewards and benefits, and using its innovative methods of evaluation, Google recruits employees with the best “innovative potential”, as the company says. Knowledge-based industries are dependent on its inputs of technology and human capital, so they face some serious HR challenges. Here recruitment and retaining employees are crucial and a major challenge as employees demand a different type of challenges and work environment than other industries, and also fitting the perfect people according to their jobs is also a major challenge here. So, intensive training and development of employees is important. Because employees are highly skilled and knowledgeable, they enjoy a high bargaining power unlike many other industries. So maintaining them requires a lot effort from the HR departments of the companies to retain and motivate them to be loyal, as they know......
