Google 推出 iOS 上的搜尋輸入法 Gboard

Google 推出了 iOS 上的搜尋輸入法 Gboard:「Meet Gboard: Search, GIFs, emojis & more. Right from your keyboard.」,可以在 App Store 上下載「Gboard — Search. GIFs. Emojis & more. Right from your keyboard.」,目前只有英文版可以用,其他語言還要等:

Get it now in the App Store in English in the U.S., with more languages to come.

可以參考 Google 做的 GIF 動畫,把搜尋的功能結合進去了:

John Gruber 寫了一篇「Gboard」關於隱私問題的討論,看起來還頗正面的。除了搜尋結果當然會需要傳到 Google 的系統裡以外,只有 crash log 會匿名傳回去。

WordPress.com 的 Elasticsearch

在「State of WordPress.com Elasticsearch Systems 2016」這邊描述他們 Elasticsearch 的架構。

有五個 cluster 打散,有跑 1.3.x 也有 1.7.x。把一般使用者與 VIP 分開,而全站的資料又是一組。另外在 2.3.x 的測試機上跑 en.support.wordpress.com 的資料 (看起來是短時間炸掉沒關係?XD)。

由於是自己生機器出來,所以機器的選擇上用大量的記憶體與 SSD 硬碟來換各種效能:

Typical data server config:
* 96GB RAM with 31GB for ES heap. Remaining gets used for file system caching
* 1-3 TB of SSD per server. In our testing SSDs are very worthwhile.

另外上面還是有疊 cache:

memcache timeouts vary from 30 seconds to 36 hours depending on use case

Google PageRank 資料將不再公開

Google 將不再對外公開 PageRank 資訊:「Google has confirmed it is removing Toolbar PageRank」與「RIP Google PageRank score: A retrospective on how it ruined the web」。

PageRank 資訊是透過 Google Toolbar 再反向被挖出來的,而 Toolbar 上的資訊將會拿掉,也預期對應的 API 應該也會關閉:

Google has confirmed with Search Engine Land that it is removing Toolbar PageRank. That means that if you are using a tool or a browser that shows you PageRank data from Google, within the next couple weeks it will begin not to show any data at all.

Google 內部還是會用,只是不會公開了...

Google 的書本掃描服務被認定為「合理使用」

Google 的書本掃描服務被認定為合理使用:「Google's Book-Scanning Project Ruled to Be Legal `Fair Use'」。

“Google’s unauthorized digitizing of copyright-protected works, creation of a search functionality and display of snippets from those works are non-infringing fair uses,” U.S. Circuit Judge Pierre Leval wrote on behalf of the court. “The purpose of the copying is highly transformative, the public display of text is limited and the revelations do not provide a significant market substitute for the protected aspects of the originals.”

看起來是一路打到第二巡迴上訴法院了?(負責紐約地區)
