What the Google-AOL deal means for users


Google is promising to keep its home page uncluttered and banner-free and its search results and keyword ad auction unbiased, despite paying $1 billion for a 5 percent stake in Time Warner's Internet unit last week.
Instead, people may see small graphical ads on Google's home and search results pages and banner ads on video and image pages, more exposure to Google's Web crawler for America Online sites, prominent links on Google Video to AOL video content and lots of chat between the popular AOL Instant Messenger program and the nascent Google Talk.
The change for users "will be very slight, especially from the core Google experience," Marissa Mayer, vice president of search products and user experience, said in an interview with CNET News.com.
"There is a lot of fear that there will be banner ads now on the Google home page. We are not considering that at all," she said. "There is concern about biased search results and we are not doing that."
Accompanying existing text ads on the Google home page and search results pages, there may eventually be "small graphical elements"--smaller than thumbnail images--from AOL or other advertisers, Mayer said in the interview. Meanwhile, banner or display ads could appear on Google's video and image search sites, she said.
"There will be no banner ads on the Google home page or Web search results pages," she wrote in a Dec. 22 posting on the Official Google Blog. "There will not be crazy, flashy, graphical doodads flying and popping up all over the Google site. Ever."

Microsoft and Google throw in the Lee


Chairs safe for now
The very public spat between Microsoft and Google over the hiring of Kai-Fu Lee has ended. The increased tension between the two companies that the Lee saga emphasized remains.
Microsoft and Google revealed this week that they've settled the Lee hiring issue, ending the embarrassing drama before a January trial. Neither party would reveal the terms of their agreement or add anything much in the way of detail. Lawyers representing the companies said they were "pleased" and "satisfied" with the secret arrangement.
The Lee spat began in July when Google poached the executive from Microsoft to run its Chinese research and development operations. Microsoft struck back with a lawsuit and some harsh words.

AOL: Furious Icahn seeks to kill Google deal


Billionaire Time Warner shareholder Carl Icahn on Monday warned the media conglomerate's board against making a "disastrous" and "short-sighted" decision.
If internet unit AOL agrees to an exclusive deal with search giant Google, its shareholders will hold the board responsible, Icahn warned.
Time Warner and Google have secretly reached a tentative agreement whereby Google would pay $1bn for a five per cent stake in AOL, giving AOL a valuation of $20bn, a source familiar with the negotiations who asked not to be named confirmed on Monday. Official word on the deal was expected to come on Tuesday, the source said.
The deal with Google, whose stock closed at $424.60, would nudge Microsoft out of the way. Microsoft had been wooing Time Warner to get AOL's search business for many months and was on the verge of a deal before the surprise turn late last week, according to another person familiar with the negotiations who asked to remain anonymous.
Icahn, who directly and indirectly controls three per cent of Time Warner shares, has been organising a proxy battle for control of the company and wants to split AOL off.

Google Close to Big AOL Payoff


internetnews.com has confirmed that AOL and Google are in exclusive negotiations for a piece of the struggling Web property.
A person close to the companies said that Microsoft had been a party to the discussions, but was notified that it was no longer in the running, and that Google was the preferred partner.
How much is AOL worth?
About $20 billion, according to a report in the "Wall Street Journal."
An article in today's WSJ states the deal calls for the the search goliath to pay $1 billion for a 5 percent stake in AOL.
The agreement would deepen the advertising partnership between the two, letting AOL sell ads against search results on AOL.com that are provided by Google. At the same time, AOL would sell display ads on Google's AdSense program, which shows ads on other Web sites and blogs.

Gmail Gone Mobile


Google wants you to get your Gmail without fail, even when you're away from your laptop or PC.

So today, the Internet giant is enabling Gmail users to access their messages from mobile devices.

The service is free to users in the United States, although Google offered this caveat: Check your wireless carrier contract for details about Web access or data transfer fees.

Gmail Mobile is designed to work seamlessly with users' phones and Gmail accounts. It sizes photos and documents for small screens; allows users to reply-by-call to people whose phone number is stored in their Gmail accounts; and automatically synchronizes between Gmail Mobile and Gmail accounts.

Google to buy Opera?


'Take that, IE 7'

Google may soon announce its acquisition of browser firm Opera, if rumour is to be believed.

Pierre Chappaz, founder of Kelkoo and ex-Yahoo! Europe president, has revealed in his personal blog, Kelblog, that a "usually well informed source" has told him the buy is on the cards.

According to Chappaz, such a move could come in response to Microsoft's latest iteration of its Internet Explorer, IE 7. Should Microsoft, for example, make a better fist of integrating its own search technology into its browser, Google could see itself losing market share.

Google whistles a new tune


Google was set to launch on Thursday a new service intended to give searchers fast links to song lyrics, musical artists and CD titles on the main search results page.

Google Music will allow a user to type in the name of a band, artist, album or song in the main Google search bar special, and results will appear at the top, accompanied by icons of music notes, said Marissa Mayer, vice president of search products and user experience at Google.

Items that can be purchased will have links to merchants for online ordering or downloading, she said. Initial merchant partners include Apple Computer's iTunes service, RealNetworks Rhapsody, eMusic and Amazon.com.

Google warns of spiralling energy costs


It could soon cost more to power you server than buy it, according to a Google engineer

A Google engineer has warned that if the performance per watt of today's computers doesn't improve, the electrical costs of running them could end up far greater than the initial hardware price tag.

That situation that wouldn't bode well for Google, which relies on thousands of its own servers.

"If performance per watt is to remain constant over the next few years, power costs could easily overtake hardware costs, possibly by a large margin," Luiz Andre Barroso, who previously designed processors for DEC, said in a September paper published in the Association for Computing Machinery's Queue. "The possibility of computer equipment power consumption spiralling out of control could have serious consequences for the overall affordability of computing, not to mention the overall health of the planet."

Google takes the bus


Google has debuted a test version of a service that tries to map out the most direct route for public-transportation users.

Google's transit trip planner, launched Wednesday, is currently limited to Portland, Ore., but may eventually launch on a global scale, according to its Web site.

Although Google's transit trip planner is not integrated into its local-search feature, it provides people with information that could dovetail into its local-search efforts. Google and competitors, such as Yahoo and Microsoft's MSN, are jumping into local search and mining the lucrative local-advertising market.

Can there be another Google?


Internet search is reaching an important pivot point, where market leaders are rewarded by Wall Street, laggards are punished, and start-ups try to fill niches left empty by the major players.

Though the market has seen a few leaders come and go over the last decade--anyone remember AltaVista?--few would doubt that a distinct top tier has emerged, occupied by Google, Yahoo, AOL and MSN.

Wall Street has certainly noticed, and it's rewarded the two standout companies--Google and Yahoo. As of the end of trading Monday, Google shares were up about 130 percent over the last year to $405.85, while Yahoo shares were up 4 percent to $40.47.

Google also is getting the bulk of business. Its search traffic rose nearly 30 percent to 83.3 million unique users in October from the year before. Yahoo search saw a 12 percent rise to 52.3 million unique users, according to Nielsen/NetRatings.

It's a case study straight out of business school: When a market gets to a certain point, the leader gets the biggest reward on Wall Street. The runner-up does OK too. But investors start losing interest in the little guys. InfoSpace's share price, for example, has dropped about 45 percent in the past year to $26.29, while Mamma.com and LookSmart shares have fallen more than 60 percent to $2.46 and $4.09, respectively.

Though there's still plenty of growing to do--indeed, some analysts estimate search advertising in the United States could grow nearly 80 percent in the next five years to $7.5 billion--the leaders are clearly established. Now they're building from their base into areas like Internet telephony and wireless access, and girding for a protracted market share battle.

Gmail gets security upgrade


Google has launched a security-scanning application for Gmail, its 20-month-old e-mail service.

High-capacity Gmail will automatically scan for viruses and spyware each time a user sends and receives a message, according to an information page on Google's site. Many of Google's competitors in the e-mail sector, such as Yahoo and Hotmail, introduced similar security software some time ago. A test version of Gmail was launched in April 2004, and the company made its official debut last spring.

It's unclear why the company has waited until now to offer an antivirus application. Previously, Google blocked transmission of executable attachments, but its new antivirus program offers broader protection.

A Google representative did not return a call Friday morning for further details.
