Google: Project Shield

Project Shield is an initiative to use Google’s infrastructure to protect free expression online. The service currently combines Google’s DDoS mitigation technologies and Page Speed Service (PSS), which allow websites to serve their content through Google to be better protected from DDoS attacks.

Project Shield is currently invite-only, and seeking additional “trusted testers”. Organizations with sites serving media, elections and human rights related content are invited to apply using the form here.

Nexus 7 was built to bring you the best of Google in the palm of your hand. Hang out with up to 10 friends on Google+ using the front-facing camera, browse the web blazingly fast with Chrome and, of course, crank through your emails with Gmail.
