Google monitor you for pay and move into your home
Google are busy bees at the moment. First off, they're moving into your house. Potentially. They're working on producing hardware you can have in your house.
The big news is that they're looking at an Android Home music system - one of the first products to emerge from the ‘Project Tungsten’ system demonstrated at the I/O conference last summer. There, they showed off a tablet that could turn your lights on and send music from the internet to a HiFi.
This move will focus on the latter, however, instead of working with other manufacturers, Google will be making their own hardware. Just like Apple does then.
Elsewhere, Google are looking to give you money. How? Well, they want to pay web-surfing plebs like you to browse the internet so they can watch every link you click. That's right! You can become a 'panelist' in the new Google Screenwise programme and you'll be rewarded with (up to) $25 in Amazon gift cards.
If you want to let Google see what depraved things you look at online, then you'll have to download a browser extension, enabling the internet giant to spy on you.
That said, Google's Screenwise page says that they're 'overwhelmed' by interest in the programme.
