GMM-Scoop-9.12.14

The biggest news on the Internet… GreenMellen Media turns 5! Hip! Hip! Hooray! and happy anniversary to us!

Apple:

If you’re going to do a weekly round up, you have to include the story everyone’s already sick of. Yes, Apple revealed the iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ and the Apple Watch. We have a full review for you here. Stockholders are more excited about the new Apple Pay system, which may be the secret sauce in Apple’s offerings for the coming year.

Google:

Are you a Gmail user? This week, it was announced that 5 million Gmail passwords were leaked. Before you panic, it appears that these were primarily dead accounts or users that were phished. You can read more about it here, and while you’re reading, download LastPass to keep your passwords really safe.

If you’re a Google Voice customer and worry that like Reader and Wave it will just disappear, worry no more!  Hangouts and Voice are now combined to give you one much better product.

Search:

Can you name the major search engines? Would we blow your mind if we said that DuckDuckGo could overtake Bing? The search tool you’ve never heard of has the potential to become a major player in search.

Well, it was nice while it lasted but the Bing Image Widget is now offline after Getty Images files suit.
