Google Australia, Lego collaborate on Build Chrome app

Google Australia and Lego have created Build, a WebGL-based Lego construction app. Users can claim a plot of land on a map of Australia and New Zealand, and can build an object on a 32x32 starting base. Using 12 shapes in 10 different colors, builds can be saved and viewed by others on the Build with Chrome website. In a blog post, Google Australia voices hope that Build will expand to more regions in the future.

YouTube explains why video counter stalls at 301

A Google engineer has explained why YouTube stalls the video view counter at 301. According to Youtube's Ted Hamilton, speaking to webseries Numberphile, 300 was the designated point where pageviews would be checked to see if they were genuine, instead of people gaming the system using bots or misleading titles for more views. The 301 count is viewed as the limit, instead of 300, due to the way the counter was programmed, and instances of plateaus at 302 and higher are from simultaneous pageview logging. "We don't put likes through the same vigorous process," according to Hamilton.


HTC Evo 3D gets Ice Cream Sandwich update

The HTC Evo 3D is being updated today in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. An over-the-air update puts Android 4.0 onto the handset via a 289MB download, according to The Unwired. Sense will be updated to version 3.6, designated by HTC to go on handsets outside of the Sense 4-equipped One-series range.
