Sample video created by Glasswhere, a prototype app for Google Glass. Glasswhere combines time lapse photography with contextual data from Google Glass to create a video postcard of your life experiences that can be published and shared. Glasswhere consists of a Google Glass app, an Android app, and a web application using App Engine and Compute Engine to take photos, record Geolocation data, composite this information together into a video, and publish it to YouTube and other social networks.
There’s a recurring cycle in online news – an article is written about a company, and an inaccurate, outdated, or plain incorrect version of their logo is used.
Then, Google indexes the article, and associates it with the name of said company.
The next time someone is writing an article about said company and looks on Google images for the company’s logo, an incorrect result is found, and then used.
Rinse, repeat. Eventually, the logo page for a company looks something like this. It doesn’t take a genius to notice that a significant portion of these logos are distorted, outdated, old, or fake.
Some companies intelligently make high-quality logos available directly from their sites (case in point, Facebook). It’s the right approach. Being paranoid about brand protection to the point that completely incorrect logos replace real ones in mainstream press isn’t a win for anyone.
