Today's topics include Google's plans to serve up Facebook content in mobile searches, a report on how the next version of Google Glass could be display-free, news on Microsoft opening a Cyber Defense Operations Center, and how Cisco is enhancing its network OS for service providers.

In a surprising partnership between the two competing companies, Google's search engine will start indexing content from Facebook's mobile application. This means when people conduct Google searches on their mobile devices, results will include content from Facebook.

This content can include public profile data. The agreement follows efforts made by Google to keep its mobile content fresh and as relevant as possible.

In other Google-related news, the next version of its Google Glass wearable device might be built without a display, which would differ greatly from the company's previous model, according to reports.

This model, referred to as Project Aura, would rely solely on audio. The switch in name comes as Google attempts to revamp and redevelop its smart eyeglasses and other wearable technology.

And when it comes to new technology, there is also security to consider. And no company knows this better than Microsoft, which spends more than $1 billion in security research and development.

Its latest move is the opening of the new Cyber Defense Operations Center, which will gather expertise from various Microsoft business units for proactive, intelligence-driven security services and software enhancements. This move is seen as a new step in the war against cyber-theft and other related hazards.

Meanwhile, Cisco Systems is enhancing the capabilities within its IOS XR network operating system in an attempt to enable service providers and cloud operators to more easily deliver applications to customers and drive down the cost of their networks.

These improvements will make networks more programmable and allow service providers to converge their data center network and WAN architectures.
