Google's putting its daily deals on a map via its new iPhone app. This and more in today's Tech Minute…
Google red flagging nearly 10K daily
Google's security team says there's another reason you should use Google to search the web. The search engine now finds and red flags nearly 10,000 malicious websites every day. Web users are then warned before clicking onto the websites. The malicious websites usually have malware waiting to install on your computer. Bing and Yahoo! offer similar services, but haven't said how many malicious websites they find each day.
Senator doesn't like Apple, Google airplanes
Senator Charles Schumer wants Google and Apple to land their aerial photography airplanes. The senator says "barbecuing and sunbathing shouldn't be a public event." Both companies say they use aircraft to take detailed photographs of property around the country for use on their mapping websites and apps.
Google's daily deals app
Lastly, sticking with Google here, it may not be as popular as Living Social or Groupon, but Google has released an iPhone app for its daily deals service. It's called "Offers," and if you download it, you'll receive notifications when new deals are available near you. Available in 40 U.S. cities, Offers will also put the deals on a map so you can easily see what's near you. Check it out: http://www.google.com/mobile/offers/
