How to bring Google's 'View Image' button back to search results

  • After inking a deal with Getty Images, Google decided last week to remove the ‘View image’ button from its search results that would directly open the file in a new tab.
  • Thankfully, there’s a way around this.
  • Simply install this browser extension in Chrome or Opera, and you’ll see the button back where was it’s supposed to be the next time you search.
  • Alternatively, you can use Startpage’s anonymous Google-powered search engine, and it’ll surface images along with the handy button – no extension necessary.
  • Oh, and if you don’t mind a couple of extra mouse clicks, you can always right-click the images that show up in search results and choose ‘Open image in new tab.’ Problem solved.

How it Sold: Dog ban cuts $50,000 from Cammeray unit price

  • The Australian Financial Review has spoken to the team behind last week's most intriguing property sale for our column, How it Sold.
  • Opening bidder and successful buyer Andrew Robinson, Belle Property NSW Auctioneer (bidding for a friend).
  • [Todd] Three weeks.
  • I had probably had five phone calls where the first question was 'Is it dog friendly?' I had two people come and look at the property, take contracts and not pursue it because it was not dog-friendly.
  • There has been an increase over the last few years where it has become much more prevalent of an issue if dogs are not allowed in the building.
  • If I had 3 or 4 dog owners [bidding], it would have achieved more.
  • It sounds a big amount, but a dog is part of the family for some people and it's not negotiable.

It's looking more and more like 'everyman' Joe Biden will run for president in 2020 — but he insists he hasn't made a decision yet

  • One possibility that Biden's longtime advisers have discussed privately is that he could announce his intention to serve only one term, clearing the path for his running mate to take over in 2024 and potentially setting up Democrats for a 12-year White House stretch.
  • Biden's brief discussion about his 2020 deliberations came as he brought foreign policy staffers together to set the 2018 agenda for the newly opened Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement — where many of them are now working, including Colin Kahl, his vice presidential national security adviser, and Steve Ricchetti, his former chief of staff.
  • Biden has started denouncing the current president's leadership more frequently in public, as he crisscrosses the United States and beyond to promote his new book, his cancer initiative, his new domestic policy institute in Delaware, the diplomacy center and his new political action committee, American Possibilities.

Joe Biden said in a private meeting he's keeping his 2020 options open — and a presidential run is a real possibility

Can Machines Save Us From the the Machines?

  • Even as companies and consumers get better at playing defense, a host of new cyber threats is at our doorsteps—and it’s unclear if anyone can keep them out.
  • The use of browser plug-ins to launch such attacks is part of a familiar strategy by hackers—treating third parties (in this case the plug-ins) as the weakest link in the security chain, and exploiting them.
  • One option is to cross our fingers that new technologies—perhaps Microsoft’s blockchain-based ID systems—will help defeat phishing and secure our browsers.
  • It’s a new book by Andrew Keen, a deep thinker on Silicon Valley culture, that proposes reconstructing our whole approach to the Internet by putting humans back at the center of our technology.
  • Welcome to the Cyber Saturday edition of Data Sheet, Fortune’s daily tech newsletter.

Commodore KERNAL History

  • In fact, for all Commodore 8-bit computers from the PET to the C65, BASIC and KERNAL were built separately, and the KERNAL jump table was their interface.
  • The VIC-20 Programmer’s Reference Manual documents these, making this the first time that machine code applications could be written for the Commodore 8 bit series in a forward-compatible way.
  • Both the KERNAL and the BASIC ROM of the C64 are derived from the VIC-20, so both the KERNAL calls and the vectors are fully compatible with it, but some extensions from the CBM-II carried over: The IOINIT and CINT calls to initialize I/O and the text screen exist, but at different addresses, and a new RAMTAS call has been added, which is also useful for startup from a ROM cartridge.

Internet rages after Google removes “view image” button, bowing to Getty

  • This week, Google Image Search is getting a lot less useful, with the removal of the "View Image" button.
  • Before, users could search for an image and click the "View Image" button to download it directly without leaving Google or visiting the website.
  • Now, Google Images is removing that button, hoping to encourage users to click through to the hosting website if they want to download an image.
  • On one hand, Google Images focuses mainly on the content of the image and doesn't do much to display the copyright status of its search results.
  • Image piracy is a rampant thing on the Internet (the images I take for device reviews are regularly stolen, for instance) and content creation firms like Getty Images could see the "view image" button as promoting image piracy.
  • On the other hand, it makes Image Search less useful for users, requiring extra clicks to get the image you want.
