Earlier this year,  thousands of Google employees protested the company's work with the military and later the possibility that managers may launch a censored search engine in China.  "Goomics," a new book that satirizes the company's corporate culture, may provide the right amount of comic relief.    Emmanuel "Manu" Cornet, a Google software engineer, artist and musician, is the book's author and illustrator. Cornet is from France and started work at...

The YouTube Gaming app launched in 2015, but failed to build a core audience.
