Google movies: now playing

Red pill blue pill. Ship hits iceberg. One ring to rule them all. If you love movies, you know which films these phrases refer to. Now, thanks to our new movie feature, Google web search knows too.

Just in time for the Oscars, we've created a new "movie:" operator that enables you to find movie-related information faster and more easily, whether you're looking for titles or actors, director or genre, famous lines or obscure plot details. Can't remember the name of that film where Tom Hanks made friends with a volleyball? Search for [movie: Tom Hanks talking to a volleyball] and Google will tell you: it was Cast Away. Want rental recommendations? Try searching for [movie: awesome car chase] or [movie: good chick flick].

Looking for a multiplex near you? Use "movie:" followed by a U.S. zip code or city/state to find theaters and showtimes in your area (a search for [movie: Mountain View, CA], for example, will show you what's playing near the Googleplex). You can also just search on "movies," "showtimes" or the title of a current film, and your top result will be movie-related info for your area (if you haven't already saved your location using Google Local, just fill in your U.S. zip code or city/state and click the "Get Showtimes" button). And for those on the go, movie showtimes are also available on Google SMS (send a text message to 46645 -- aka. GOOGL on most phones -- to look up showtimes for nearby theaters).Google Blog Posted by Hello

Gmail moves to next stage

Social networking is out and straight invitations are in at Google's free e-mail service, but the official line is that the shift does not signal an end to Gmail's beta status.

Google is giving more people the chance to sign up for Gmail
, but the search giant insists the move does not signify an impending full-scale launch of the free e-mail service, which has been in beta since it launched on April 1 last year.

To date, Google has been relying on social networking to roll out Gmail, initially inviting some 2,000 people, who were then able to invite a limited number of others themselves. This week though, Google started sending invitations directly to those who have signed up to be kept abreast of updates to the service.

"We're sending invitations to those who supported us during the launch," said a Google representative. But she added, "This does not mean that we're out of beta (or) offering open subscriptions to the world.

The Google Login

"Google is likely to require its users to begin providing personal information to use some of its products and services, said CEO Eric Schmidt. Requiring people to provide their identity and a password to gain service access is common at many Web sites, but would be new for Google. Having more personal information would enable Google to offer more useful improvements, Schmidt said."

Google Maps

Google Maps
is an online service that allows users in the U.S. to find location information, navigate through maps, and get directions quickly and easily. Google Maps has several unique features:

• Draggable maps you can click and drag Google maps to view adjacent sections; no more long waits while new areas download.
Integrated Local search results – Google Maps integrates local search results from Google Local. So to find a pizza place, simply type in "pizza in San Jose", and pizza places appear at various locations on your map, with phone numbers for each location on the right side of the page.

• Turn-by-turn directions Type in an address and Google Maps plots the route for you, displaying it visually on the map itself, together with step-by-step directions for getting there (or back from there). When you click on one of these steps (say, "turn left"), you see a floating bubble with a magnified view of the area mentioned in the directions.

• Keyboard shortcuts You can use arrow keys to pan left, right, up and down. The Page Up, Page Down, Home and End keys let you pan out even wider. And you can zoom in with the plus (+) key and zoom out with the minus (-) key. Posted by Hello

Google image index passes the one-billion milestone

Google said on Tuesday that following a recent expansion, its image index
now contains more than one billion pictures.

Google has been the most popular search engine on the Internet for some time but due to increasing competition from Yahoo, Microsoft and a large number of smaller localised search engines, the company has had to continue expanding its reach by indexing previously unavailable Web content.

A Google spokesperson told ZDNet Australia that the company's Web page index recently passed the eight billion page mark, but now Web users also have access to more than one billion images.

"A billion images is a milestone for us. We now have nearly 1.2 billion images in our image index. We have brought the main index up to 8 billion but this is specifically related to images -- we have found a whole load of new images on the web and expanded our comprehensiveness on that front," the spokesperson said.

In the past, Google has not only expanded its content indexes but also published material that was not previously available on the Web.

In January the company launched a prototype of Google Video, which is an engine that lets people search over the text of TV shows. Immediately, the service will scour programming from PBS, Fox News, C-SPAN, ABC, and the NBA, among others, making broadcasts searchable the same day.

Craig Silverstein, director of technology at Google and the company's first official employee, explained that the company's long term policy is to index content that is already published but also make previously unsearchable content -- such as paper catalogues -- available online.

"We took a bunch of mail order catalogues, many of which are not online because they are very small. We converted them to text and made them searchable. This information wasn't even available electronically but now you can search it and we are hoping to get more of that type of information available," said Silverstein. ZDNet Australia Posted by Hello

Gmail gearing up for full launch?

Gmail, the Web mail service operated by search engine Google, could be gearing up for its official launch, as people using the service have found recently that the number of invitations they can send out has increased from four to 50.

Gmail, which was launched in April 2004 and is still officially in a testing phase, is not open to the general public.

At first, Google let only select family and friends open accounts at Gmail. But it has slowly opened up membership more broadly to friends of those already holding accounts.

This latest development could indicate that either Google is hoping to significantly expand its user base for further testing or that the company is gearing up for a full launch.

At the time of writing, Google was not available for comment.

Gmail's popularity has already been targeted by online criminals. In September, scammers sent phishing e-mails to existing holders of Gmail accounts, offering them the opportunity to invite three or six of their friends to join Gmail.

The fraudulent e-mail, which claimed to originate from the "Gmail Team," asked people to disclose their Gmail account passwords to receive the additional invites.News.com Posted by Hello

Google Local

Sometimes the information you're looking for is related to a particular place like the all-night doughnut shop that's nearest to your house. Google Local locates neighborhood stores and services by searching billions of pages across the Web, then cross-checking those results with Yellow Pages data to pinpoint the local resources you want to find. This innovative approach gives you access to the most and most relevant results for your search.

To use Google Local, just include a zip code or the name of a town or city with your regular search terms at www.google.com. Your local results will appear at the top of the results page.

You can also go directly to the Google Local home page to view only local results, see results on an area map, or limit your results to listings within a set distance from your starting point. Posted by Hello

Google gets rights as Web site registrar

Monday, January 31, 2005

Google has become accredited to register and sell Web addresses under the governing body of domain names.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a nonprofit based in Los Angeles, has deemed Google a domain name registrar, according to the search company. However, it has no plans to sell Web addressees for now.

"Google became a domain name registrar to learn more about the Internet's domain name system," a company representative said Tuesday. "We believe this information can help us increase the quality of our search results."

With the papers, Google joins other Internet companies, including Amazon.com and America Online, to be ICANN-accredited without a storefront. Rival registrars that make a business of selling domain names are speculating that the credentials will give Google a more powerful seat at the table with ICANN, an Internet government body, or a potential business opportunity down the road.

"Most small businesses aren't wired--that's changing. Maybe 25 percent to 30 percent has access to broadband--that's changing," noted Don Parsons, chief executive of GoDaddy.com, one of the Net's largest registrars. "All this means more domain names."

According to Google, the move points to at least one of its approaches to improving search, amid fierce competition from Yahoo, Microsoft and many others.

With accreditation, Google may be able to better control its own cadre of Web addresses, including Google.com, with the ability to set its own policies and procedures. It also may command more respect from other registrars, granting it easier access to their data on registrations. That access could give Google a better view of how the Internet is growing, according to industry executives. Still, they say, that data is available to most third parties.

"Google is a pure-play Internet company, and ICANN is an important creature in terms of Internet government," said Elliot Noss, chief of Tucows. "It likely wants to understand it better."

To gain credentials, companies must pay $10,000 for an application, along with other incidentals. The costs go up significantly to set up policies, procedures and customer service for selling domain names.

Google grabs more Firefox talent

Friday, January 28, 2005

Another Firefox programmer has announced he is in the employ of Google, fuelling rumours about the search giant's browser plans

Google is gobbling up talent from the Mozilla Foundation, creators of the insurgent open-source Web browser Firefox; the hires may feed into rumours that the search giant is quietly building an Internet Explorer-killer. Mozilla talent Darin Fisher is the most recent addition to Google's payroll, following his cohort Ben Goodger, according to Fisher's blog. Goodger had worked full-time as Mozilla's lead Firefox programmer, whereas Fisher contributed to its backend infrastructure while also working for IBM. Both say they will continue to work with Mozilla, which has about 20 core staff and 60 additional helping hands.

For its part, the nonprofit organisation downplayed any significance. "This is not unusual in the world of the Mozilla project," according to a blog posting from Mitchell Baker, Mozilla's chief lizard wrangler. "A number of people have moved from one employer to another within the Mozilla project.

Google rolls out TV search prototype

Tuesday, January 25, 2005

Google introduced late Monday a prototype of a service to search TV programming, an anticipated move to broaden its search franchise for broadcast.

As previously reported, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company has been quietly developing Google Video, an engine that lets people search the text of TV shows. Immediately, the service will scour programming from PBS, Fox News, C-SPAN, ABC, and the NBA, among others, making broadcasts searchable the same day.

People can search on a term--such as "Indonesian tsunami"--to find the TV shows in which it was mentioned, a still image of the video and closed-captioning text of that particular segment of the program.

For now, people will not be able to watch the video clip, nor will the Web pages contain the company's signature text advertising. But Google expects to add video playback down the road, after ironing out the complexities of broadcasting rights and business models with various content owners. Jonathan Rosenberg, Google's vice president of product management, also said he could foresee selling commercial-like advertising, among other business models, with the new service.

Google may offer internet calls

Monday, January 24, 2005

Google has described reports that it is about to launch a free telephone service that will link users via a broadband internet connection as "pure speculation".

According to the Times newspaper, a recent job advert by Google sought a "strategic negotiator to help the company provide a global backbone network.

The job would include responsiblity for IP transit services in North America, Europe, Asia, negotiating for collocation deals and sorting out contracts for dark fiber services. The Times report suggests: "the logical use of such a network would be to help to support a new telephone service."

A second article from website Pocket-Lint suggests Google may choose to offer an internet telephony service via the acquisition of an existing company such as provider Skype.Web-User Posted by Hello

Google aims to outsmart search tricksters

Wednesday, January 19, 2005

Google will introduce new technology controls to thwart people using blogs to manipulate rankings in its search results.

Otherwise known as "link" or "comment spam," the ruse is as old as Web marketing. Such Web site promoters use the comment form on forums, blogs or any Web page to place or gain a link pointing back to their own Web site. And because Google and other search engines tabulate search results in part by a Web page's link popularity with other sites, the trick can boost a site's ranking--and more importantly, traffic. It can also produce irrelevant search results.

In the age of blogging, the problem has grown acute because publishers have little recourse to stop outsiders from littering their comment forms with bogus links, short of shutting them down or inserting password protections.

Late Tuesday, Mountain View, Calif.-based Google plans to detail in its own blog a new tactic for blocking link spammers, according to a company representative.C|net Posted by Hello

Google wants 'dark fiber'

Tuesday, January 18, 2005

Is Google planning to build a global fiber optic network from scratch? And, if so, why?

The question has cropped up in light of a recent job posting on the search engine giant's Web site seeking experts in the field.

"Google is looking for Strategic Negotiator candidates with experience in...(i)dentification, selection, and negotiation of dark fiber contracts both in metropolitan areas and over long distances as part of development of a global backbone network," the posting reads, in part.

Dark fiber refers to fiber optic cable that's already been laid, but is not yet in use. Thousands of miles of dark fiber is available in the United States, but there have been few takers due to the high costs of making it operational.

Google History

Google is a play on the word googol, which was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, and was popularized in the book, "Mathematics and the Imagination" by Kasner and James Newman. It refers to the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. Google's use of the term reflects the company's mission to organize the immense, seemingly infinite amount of information available on the web.

Back before Google? Aye, there's the Rub.

According to Google lore, company founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin were not terribly fond of each other when they first met as Stanford University graduate students in computer science in 1995. Larry was a 24-year-old University of Michigan alumnus on a weekend visit; Sergey, 23, was among a group of students assigned to show him around. They argued about every topic they discussed. Their strong opinions and divergent viewpoints would eventually find common ground in a unique approach to solving one of computing's biggest challenges: retrieving relevant information from a massive set of data.

By January of 1996, Larry and Sergey had begun collaboration on a search engine called BackRub, named for its unique ability to analyze the "back links" pointing to a given website. Larry, who had always enjoyed tinkering with machinery and had gained some notoriety for building a working printer out of Lego™, took on the task of creating a new kind of server environment that used low-end PCs instead of big expensive machines. Afflicted by the perennial shortage of cash common to graduate students everywhere, the pair took to haunting the department's loading docks in hopes of tracking down newly arrived computers that they could borrow for their network.

A year later, their unique approach to link analysis was earning BackRub a growing reputation among those who had seen it. Buzz about the new search technology began to build as word spread around campus. Posted by Hello
