Dan Fredinburg, a respected Google executive who headed privacy for Google X and lead its product management team, has died in the avalanche on Mount Everest which was triggered by the huge earthquake in Nepal. The natural disaster has already killed over 2,000 people in the region and devastated infrastructure. Some 18 other climbers have been killed in what is being described as the worst earthquake to hit Nepal in the last 80 years.

By all accounts, Fredinburg was an experienced climber who had also co-founded Google Adventure, a company team that filmed Google Street View images in “extreme, exotic locations like the summit of Mount Everest or the Great Barrier Reef off Australia.”

Fredinburg’sc sister Megan confirmed his death via his Instagram account, while Google’s privacy director Lawrence posted the following earlier today: “Dan Fredinburg, a long-time member of the Privacy organization in Mountain View, was in Nepal with three other Googlers, hiking Mount Everest. He has passed away. The other three Googlers with him are safe and we are working to get them home quickly.”

Concerns over the power of Internet service providers to control access to online content didn't mesh well with handing provider Comcast even more power via a merger with Time Warner Cable.Concerns over the power of Internet service providers to control access to online content didn't mesh well with handing provider Comcast even more power via a merger with Time Warner Cable.

Call it bad timing for Comcast. But the heated public debate over Net neutrality likely played a major role in sinking the cable giant's hopes to buy Time Warner Cable.

"It was subtle, but Net neutrality framed the debate," said Christopher Sprigman, a law professor at New York University. "Through that process, it became clear that the state of broadband for the average consumer is pretty bad. And regulators didn't want to make an already bad situation worse by giving one of the largest broadband providers more power."

For cycling enthusiasts whose interests fall somewhere between a 10-speed and a motorcycle, electric bicycles are a pretty solid alternative. Unfortunately, sometimes e-bikes look like this. But these new retro-styled ones from Vintage Electric look like something an extra in Jaws would ride around before all the bad stuff stars happening.

The bikes are from the Cruz line: they're kind of campy, kind of beachy, and vintage in style only. Vintage Electric claims the bikes can reach a speed of 36 MPH in "Race Mode" with a range of 30 miles and a recharge time of just two hours. The company says the 3,000 watt, 3-phase brushless motor and 52 volt battery should last around 30,000 miles.

These Images Show the Night Sky That Hides Behind Our City Lights

If you live in LA, or any major city for that matter, you’ll know there’s something very unusual in the image above. It’s called the Milky Way, and it’s about as exotic as a cougar sighting.

For most of human history, people could look up at the night sky just about anywhere on Earth and enjoy the splendor of thousands of stars. But if you live in an urban enclave today, there’s a good chance you’ve never seen more than a dozen.

If you were looking to buy a Nexus 7, you’re out of luck as Google’s 7-inch tablet is no longer available for purchase from Google’s online store.

If you visit the Nexus 7 page on the Google Store, you’ll be presented with a message stating that “the Nexus 7 is no longer available for purchase.” It’s unclear as of this writing whether Google has discontinued the Nexus 7 outright, or whether it’s merely out of stock or is planning to release a refreshed version.

At the time of its release in 2013, we praised the current Nexus 7 as “the best 7-inch tablet that money can buy,” and especially liked its sharp, vibrant 1280 by 1920-resolution screen. The Nexus 7 hasn’t received an update since then, however, so given the tablet’s age, it wouldn’t come as a shock if Google stopped production.
