Amazing Tech – Google Developing a contact lens for Diabetics

Diabetes is a growing concern around the World, and something very personal to me as I developed Type 1 diabetes in my early 20s.

Now in a normal day most diabetics check blood sugars between 4 and 8 times by pricking there finger and using a glucose meter. Google’s new technology would allow diabetics to have blood sugars continuously monitored. There are several advantages to this, and will change many diabetics life making it that much easier. One huge advantage of this is greatly reducing the risk of dangerously low blood sugars during exercise. It has the potential to provide immediate warnings when ever blood sugars fall out of the normal range.

Funny Google Suggestions

It’s well known, start typing in a search, and Google offers suggestions before you’ve even finished typing.  Often these suggestions are funny, strange, slightly odd, etc.  But how does Google come up with these search suggestions?

Suggestions Based On Real Searches – real searches done by other people, largely ranked on popularity.

Suggestions Can Vary By Region & Language – Location is important, the country you’re in, the state or province, even the city, all can produce different suggestions.

Previously Searched Suggestions – Perhaps the most important factor in the auto complete, and responsible for many funny or rude suggestions.

These are the three basic ways Google works to provide you with search suggestions, but there are many more factors Google takes into account, maybe I’ll write more about it in a latter article, but for now, here are a bunch of funny Google suggestions.
