Google has launched its own quarterly online publication called The Quarterly. The full-length publication is an interactive magazine that Google calls a “breathing space in a busy world.” The content is similar to publications like BusinessWeek and is aimed at those interested in how technology affects business. In other news, Facebook released a massive update to its Q&A service, further integrating into the social experience. There will now be a questions dashboard that combines all of your friends’ questions and answers to provide better insight. The service is currently in a limited beta test and you can opt-in if you want to try it out. And finally, South Korea’s government is looking to pass legislation that would make it mandatory for every citizen to install security software. The proposal is meant to stop South Korean computers from being taken over by malicious botnets. Will mandated software actually stop the threats?
