Exel, part of the supply-chain division of Deutsche Post DHL Group, will replace handheld scanners with Google Glass, fitted with a warehouse management software in two US warehouses later this year, Wall Street Journal reported.

“The technology like Google Glass could prove especially useful during peak periods when Exel hires thousands of temporary workers,” Adrian Kumar, vice-president for solutions design with Exel, was quoted as saying.

“These are people off the street who are not familiar with our warehouses, do not know where anything is, and we see huge potential for that type of situation, especially with training,” Kumar said.

Google Glass will tell warehouse workers the fastest route to find products and can read bar codes.

It will reduce the time needed to pick out an item and pack it for shipping.

“The technology has the most application in e-commerce warehouses where workers might need to find a handful of items out of more than a million individual products,” DHL Group said.

Google is The Best Search Engine, Says Tim Cook

On a question on diversity at workplace, Cook said the Silicon Valley has been open to many different people from different walks of life

Google Search engine — the default platform for iOS users — is the best, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said, adding that the company has put proper controls in its Safari web browser to safeguard users’ data.

In an interview with Axios on HBO on Sunday night, Tim Cook defended Apple’s billion-dollar deal with Google that keeps Google Search a default search platform on its devices.

“One, I think their (Google’s) Search engine is the best. But two, look at what we’ve done with the controls. We have private web browsing, we have intelligent tracking prevention.

“What we’ve tried to do is come up with ways to help our users through their course of the day. It’s not a perfect thing, but it goes a long way in helping,” Cool told the Axios technology correspondent.

Google will reportedly pay Apple a whopping $9 billion in 2018 to remain the default search engine for iPhone’s Safari browser on iOS.

According to Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall (via Business Insider), this number would only continue to grow, potentially leading to a payment of $12 billion in 2019.

Cook has opposed privacy practices of some big tech companies, like Facebook, in the past, calling them a form of “surveillance”.

When it comes to regulating the tech companies, Tim Cook said while he was “not a big fan of regulation,” but there comes time to “admit when the free market is not working”.

“I think it’s inevitable that there will be some level of regulation. I think Congress and the administration at some point will pass something,” Cook said.

“This is not a matter of privacy versus profits, or privacy versus technical innovation. That’s a false choice.

“Your device has incredible intelligence about you, but as a company I don’t have to have that,” the Apple CEO added.

On a question on diversity at workplace, Cook said the Silicon Valley has been open to many different people from different walks of life.

“But I agree 100 per cent from a gender point of view that the valley has missed it and tech in general has missed it,” he said. (IANS)
