DNP Google Shopping Express intros new mobile app, expands Bay Area service

Google began testing its new same-day delivery service, Shopping Express, with a limited trial for San Francisco customers back in March, and it’s apparently proven successful enough for an expansion. Starting today, residents of the greater Bay Area — from San Francisco to San Jose — can streamline their to-do list by having local stores deliver straight to their doors. Included on the list of participating retailers are national giants like Target, Toys R Us, Walgreens, Staples and Whole Foods (just to name a few), though some smaller businesses will also take part. The service is also expanding to mobile phones, as Google is launching a new Shopping Express app for both Android and iOS devices; with it, you can search for items, browse different stores and place orders from your phone.

YouTube partners with vendors for paid translation service

YouTube partners with vendors for paid translation services to 36 languages

Last year, Google began offering a “request translation” option for YouTube, letting you or others muddle your way through video caption creation. If you don’t want to leave it up to strangers or the vagaries of machine translation, Mountain View’s now offering paid, professional services through two outfits, Gengo and Translated.net, in 36 languages. Once you’ve created your video and added a caption track, you’ll be able to see an estimated price and create an order, after which your vendor of choice will send the translation directly to YouTube. Once approved, it’ll be live on the site, ensuring no misunderstandings of your latest opus.

Facebook Is Launching a Numberless "Social Calling" Service

Source: http://gizmodo.com/5962449/facebook-is-launching-a-numberless-social-calling-service

Facebook Is Launching a Numberless "Social Calling" ServiceTechCrunch is reporting that Facebook is teaming up with carriers to provide a “social calling” service. Initially striking up a deal with French carrier Orange, it seems the service will allow friends to make voice calls without knowing each other’s numbers.

The service will apparently allow users to make calls from mobile and desktop flavors of Facebook, using ties on Facebook, rather than possession of a phone number, to allow calling. It’ll also apparently support group calls, too.

The service will be powered by Orange’s new IP-based call app Libonalready available on iOS—which is effectively a mobile Skype competitor. The Facebook social calling service is planned to go live in France during the summer of 2013. Orange’s reach spreads far and wide across Europe, though, so it seems likely that the service’s tentacles will spread.

It remains unclear how quickly that will happen, of course, and whether or not Facebook plans to roll it out internationally any time soon. It’s also not clear how consumers will embrace the news: while there’s certainly a shift towards voice calls being made online, the idea of any Facebook contact calling at will is maddening even in theory.
