Access your Google searches on every mobile device you own

Continuing its desire for search domination, Google now lets you access recent local business and place searches across all your browsers and mobile devices. The feature was announced on Google’s Inside Search blog Monday. All you have to do is log in into your Google account in a desktop browser, make sure you have web history enabled, and search for something local, such as a restaurant, store, museum, and so on. As it does with many search results, Google will likely display the full business details on your search results page, next to a map of the location. Once you’ve searched for the business or place on your browser, you can go to your phone’s browser, log in to Google with the same account, and on the search engine’s mobile homepage, you’ll see a “Recent” icon that can tap to view your recent searches. The new feature could be handy for finding your way to a restaurant you looked up earlier in the day. But I have an Android phone and I never go to Google’s mobile homepage on my phone. If I need to search for a business, I use the Maps application or my stock browser’s address bar, which also acts a Google search bar. In addition, I can’t figure out, based on my own research and Google’s post, whether you have to search for a specific place or if you can just type a more general location term such as “McDonalds.” The feature is available for Android and iPhone, all you have to do is use your preferred mobile browser to go to Google.com. To enable Google web history, click this link or just search “Google Web History” in Google, of course. Filed under: mobile

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?
– After falling significantly in 2020, oil prices have returned to pre-pandemic levels
– The rise has been driven by OPEC+ production cuts and an improving economic climate
– Higher prices are likely to support a rebound in oil-producing emerging markets
– Further virus outbreaks or increased production would pose challenges to price stability

A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Brent crude prices rose above $60 a barrel in early February, the first time they had exceeded pre-Covid-19 values. They have since continued to rise, going above $66 a barrel on February 24.

The ongoing increase in oil prices, which have soared by 75% since November and around 26% since the beginning of the year, marks a dramatic change from last year.

Following the closure of many national borders and the implementation of travel-related restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, demand for oil slumped globally.

In the wake of the Saudi-Russia price war in early 2020, Brent crude prices fell from around $60 a barrel in February that year to two-decade lows of $20 a barrel in late April, as supply increased and demand plummeted. The value of WTI crude – the main benchmark for oil in the US – fell to record lows of around $40 a barrel last year on the back of a lack of storage space.

While global demand for oil remains low, one factor credited with reversing the trend is the decision to make significant cuts to oil production, which subsequently tightened global supplies.
