SEO News is often dry and since the search engines drive the news, there can be some slow days for discussions on topic. Today was a perfect example of headlines that just don’t make the grade, but at least they had a common theme: Back to the Future?
Quantum Levitation brings the hover board closer to reality:
In this video we see how ‘quantum locking’ (or flux pinning) can work with a superconductor to ‘levitate’. That’s the gist I got from it, yet the whole time I’m thinking about how I’d love one of those hover boards from Back to the Future:

Coming Soon: Electric Deloreans!
The DeLorean Motor Company “DMC” announced a DMC-12 Electric Delorean:

While you could do a web search from the dash of an electric car, it’s not very web related? To tug us a bit closer back on topic, yet not entirely, I’ll close with a reminder about Google’s remote desktop beta extension for Chrome.
Chrome remote desktop beta getting positive feedback:
All you need is a Chromebook or Chrome browser on both ends, start a sharing session, send the code to the other end, and viola, you’re connected.
This does away with IP addresses, running services, or trusting one of the 3rd party commercial vendors with secure access to your machines.
Since this is a challenge/response setup in the beta phase, Google’s solution won’t be replacing large IT support offerings, but for 1-on-1 support it’s very handy.
Next time a client asks me about some SEO statistics on their PC, instead of describing what I think they can see over the phone, I’ll give this a whirl so we’re both on the same page.
