For the first time since Google acquired Waze, Google Maps is using some of the acquired functionality. Real-time crowd-sourced traffic reports, the most popular feature on Waze, are showing up in Google Maps for Android and iOS.
To the list of vulnerable technologies, it's time to add shipboard GPS. A research team from the University of Texas at Austin has demonstrated that a ship's GPS can be tricked and its navigation hijacked.
When Google purchased Israeli crowd-source navigation company Waze, rumors put the deal at more than $1 billion. SEC filings just released put the value near $1 billion, but not quite: $966 million.
It's official. Following reports that technology giant Google had bested Facebook with an eight-figure offer for the popular crowd-source traffic-beating app Waze, the two companies confirmed the deal.
