Google Maps beta adds enhancements to navigation mode and new coordinate scheme

The beta version of Google Maps has another Thursday special for you, with a mix of features that ease sharing directions and telling Maps how you plan to get to your destination.

The feature, which was definitely new to me, is called Plus Codes. It?s a method developed by Google?s Zurich office that is designed to be more user-friendly than identifying a location by Latitude and Longitude.

Why this matters: Google Maps drops in a lot of interesting new tidbits all the time with the beta version of its mapping application. So sign up if you want to try out the latest mapping tricks before anybody else.

That's according to Informatica CEO Anil Chakravarthy, whose says his company -- which has traditionally focused on data management and integration -- is embarking on a major push to go further into data security.

"You hear about breaches all the time -- just imagine all the ones you're not hearing about," Chakravarthy said in a recent interview. "Data security today is an unsolved problem for customers."

Last year, Informatica launched a product called Secure@Source that promises a data-centric approach to information security by helping organizations identify and visualize sensitive data wherever it resides.

SwiftKey is bouncing back after dealing with some pesky bugs that threw a wrench in the company?s suggestion engine.

Here's how the Xbox One S stacks up to the original

Microsoft launched the Xbox One S earlier this month, revitalizing its current-generation console lineup with some new features. Here's how it stacks up against the previous version.

The Xbox One S is 40 percent smaller than its predecessorand is built to stand on its side, unlike the Xbox One. It also packs support for 4K streaming video, and 4K Blu-Ray playback, but not native 4K gaming.

Here's the bottom line: It's a big upgrade from the Xbox 360, and possibly worthwhile for people who need a little extra room on their TV stand or those who could benefit from 4K video. But existing Xbox One owners with standard HD TVs probably don't have a reason to buy one.

HP's new privacy protecting laptop screen thwarts would-be spies

HP?s EliteBook 1040 and EliteBook 840 laptops now have an option to add a new one-touch solution called SureView that combats what the company calls ?visual hacking.? SureView was developed with 3M privacy technology, and HP first showed off the technology during CES in January.
