Google denies fault over GMail problems

Google has admitted that a few users' Google Mail accounts were mistakenly deleted, but the search giant claims it is not responsible.

"We have seen a few cases where users report that their accounts have been deleted, and in each case our investigations have revealed that the accounts were deleted by someone with that account's password. In these cases, we're unfortunately unable to restore accounts," a Google spokeswoman told ZDNet UK on Tuesday.

Google Mail service is known as Gmail in much of the world, but not in the UK as Google ceded the right to that name here after a legal fight. Despite being launched almost exactly two years ago it is still in beta.

To delete an account, users must follow the steps detailed on Google's Web site and must re-enter their account password to confirm the operation.

ZDNet UK asked Google what steps it is taking to ensure that other users cannot hack into an account and delete it. The company replied on Thursday that users should follow its tips on password safety.

But Google Mail user Ali Al Saeed, who has been unable to access his account for over two weeks and fears it has been deleted, said on Thursday he believes Google should send a verification email to an alternative email account before deleting a Google Mail account.

Google local search shows image ads on maps

As anticipated, Google is launching a feature Thursday night for businesses that want to target customers based on geography.

Marketers will be able to place photos and logos inside balloons that pop up on Google maps exactly where the merchants are located.

A handful of advertisers, including Barnes & Noble and Ralph Lauren, have purchased keywords such as "New York books" and "Ralph Lauren New York" and tested the new Local Business Ads system over the past few weeks, said Dominic Preuss, product manager for Google's local advertising.

Users will notice that with certain searches on Google Local, icons representing types of businesses will appear on the map corresponding with a particular merchant. A given icon might be a coffee cup, a shopping bag, a grocery cart, a car or, in the case of Ralph Lauren, a flower. When someone clicks the icon, a balloon pops up containing more information about the merchant, including a logo or photo and maybe a link to the merchant's Web site.

With Local Business Ads, merchants bid on keywords and pay per click as they do for ads now on Google AdWords, said Preuss. The ads show up on the maps as well as on Google's main search results page as regular text ads, he said.

Google, Nike Open Social Football Site

Google took a step further into the content business on Thursday, kicking off a new community Web site dedicated to football, or soccer as it is known in the United States. The search engine joined up with Nike to build Joga.com, which is based on Google's Orkut social networking site. Users can add pictures, videos and blogs, and link up with friends.

Google gets cash hungry

Google is planning to sell an additional 5.3m shares. The main reason, according to the press release, is to increase the supply of shares available in the market, as the search engine will be added to the S&P 500.

What that doesn’t answer the question: why does Google need the $2.1bn that the floatation will bring?

The SEC filing doesn't give us anything either. It is using standard phrasing to say that there is nothing to say:

"We anticipate that we will use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including working capital and capital expenditures. In addition, we may use proceeds of this offering for acquisitions of businesses, technologies or other assets that we believe will complement our business."

Google deletes its own blog


A student from Texas left internet giant Google with egg on its face by taking control of the company's official blog when it went offline yesterday.

The unnamed student tried registering a new blog with the Google-owned Blogger service using the same googleblog name after the search firm's usual page failed to load.

Yesterday the blog carried the message: 'Google, fix your blog pleeassse!'

"Just to clear things up, I'm not associated with Google. I just wanted to take advantage of this before someone else with less worthy intentions did," the site said.

"The username was giving a 404, so I tried registering a new blog with it. Surprisingly, it worked."

Google and Verizon do SuperPages deal

Recruiting an army of small business sales reps...

Google and Verizon SuperPages.com have signed a deal under which the classified ad provider will help its tens of thousands of marketers get ads onto Google search result pages, the companies said on Monday.

Google said in a statement: "We're pleased Verizon is an authorised AdWords reseller and helping local small businesses take advantage of the opportunities of search advertising."

Verizon SuperPages.com sends sales representatives out to businesses to sell them advertising that will appear in print and online, something Google and other big internet companies don't have the resources to do, Eric Chandler, president of the internet division at Verizon SuperPages.com, said in a keynote at The Kelsey Group Drilling Down on Local conference in California.

The new arrangement "marries our sales channel opportunities with Google's vast advertising network," Chandler said in an interview after the session. "We play a key role in this whole ecosystem. We are the enablers to get this group [small merchants] online."

SuperPages.com already provides business profiles to Google so that some search results include links to more information about particular businesses on SuperPages.com, Chandler said.

Google employees' wireless patents published

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has published three wireless-related patents filed by Google employees as the search giant seeks to delve deeper into the wireless market.

The patent applications, filed by Google employees Wesley Chan, Shioupyn Shen and former Google product management director Georges Harik, propose lowering the cost of wireless access by offsetting the costs via advertisements on the service. Google, which receives the bulk of its revenue from advertisers, is seeking to expand its potential advertising base by moving further into the wireless market.

The patent applications, filed in 2004 and published earlier this month, address three issues related to the wireless and advertising market.

Patent application No. 20060058019 seeks to develop a system for dynamically modifying the appearance of browser screens on a client device when connecting to a wireless access point. Under the patent, the browser's appearance would be modified to reflect the brand associated with the wireless access-point provider.

The patent application says that Wi-Fi Internet access would be provided freely to customers in exchange for their agreement to receiving ads on their devices.

Google News dumps partner after prank item appears

Google's news service has cut ties with a press release aggregator after the partnership led Google News to link to a fake item written by a teenager who said he'd been hired by the search giant.

On March 10, Thomas Vendetta, a sophomore at Pitman High School in New Jersey, posted a fake press release to I-Newswire.com, a Web site that lets people submit press releases for distribution to online sites. The release said Vendetta had been hired by Google to work on fixing a security flaw in Gmail.

"The student will receive a lowered salary, which will be placed into a bank account for future education, said Google CEO Larry Page," the release read, according to the SEO Blog, which posted an excerpt from it.

Google News picked up the item from I-Newswire that same day, and two days later news aggregator site Digg.com also linked to the item, Vendetta told CNET News.com. All three news sites moved quickly to remove the item from their pages.

And last Tuesday, I-Newswire quickly yanked from its site a release that falsely reported that actor Will Ferrell was killed in a paragliding accident. It was unknown who was responsible for that item, which also appeared on Google News, according to a screenshot posted on media watchdog Web site Regrettheerror.com.

Vendetta said in a telephone interview Friday that he got the idea from blogger Richard Wiggins, who detailed in his blog on March 9 how he and two others were able to get personal "press releases" onto Google News. Wiggins said he wrote about a trip he took to Key West, Fla., and a friend wrote a "press release" wishing the Michigan State Spartans luck in an upcoming basketball tournament. The Spartans release went up on Google News within an hour.

Vendetta said he was just trying to see what kind of results he would get. "I never really meant to make (Google) look like they were putting up fake news," he said. "I don't think it affected their credibility that much."

Google gets into finance

Following in the footsteps of Yahoo!...

Google is today set to launch a beta test version of Google Finance, a website aggregating information about public and private companies and mutual funds that features an interactive chart correlating news and other events with stock price spikes and falls.

Charts can be changed to show stock activity for different time periods by clicking and dragging, and they can be zoomed in on to get more detailed information. News stories that correspond to specific days are displayed on the side and are automatically adjusted to reflect the selected time period.

Users have been able to get a stock quote by typing a ticker into the Google search bar. Now the Google Finance page will be one of the top links on the results page when a ticker is typed in the search bar.

Google Finance includes links to news about companies, a personalised area for keeping track of stock quotes for select companies, related news that automatically displays news related to the tickers searched on and a portfolio section for keeping track of companies a user is researching or trading. It also has charts that show the volume of news stories for a particular company on a specific day as well as company facts, summary, financials, management and related companies and links to outside news and finance sources.

Google Base to transform e-tailing?

While some experts say that Google can't succeed in its retail ambitions without a distribution chain, others think that misses the point

Google is hoping to take on the huge task of moving a significant portion of the European retail sector online.

The company is extending Google Base, its system for advertising and selling goods and services, into a full retail operation, it revealed this week.

Some industry analysts are sceptical about Google’s prospects and have dismissed Google Base as "just advertising". Another analyst believes that Google Base’s true worth goes beyond just retail and that its "rounded, more complete, approach" will make like tough for companies like Amazon.com and eBay.

Nikesh Arora, head of Google's European arm, told the Financial Times on Thursday that Google wanted companies in retail and related sectors such as real estate to submit details of their goods and prices. Google would index them and package the information into a search engine.

Google Desktop 3.0 Final

Google Desktop gives you easy access to information on your computer and from the web. It's a desktop search application that provides full text search over your email, computer files, music, photos, chats and web pages that you've viewed. By making your computer searchable, Google Desktop puts your information easily within your reach and frees you from having to manually organize your files, emails and bookmarks. It makes searching your computer as easy as searching the web with Google.

Google Desktop doesn't just help you search your computer; it also helps you gather new information from the web with Sidebar, a new desktop feature that shows you your new email, weather and stock information, personalized news and RSS/Atom feeds, and more. Sidebar is personalized automatically, without any manual configuration required (though you can certainly make your own customizations if you want to).

We've also improved your desktop search experience. With Quick Find, you can now launch applications and see search results as you type without even opening a browser. We've also extended our Outlook integration, so you can search Google Desktop with the Outlook Toolbar and see results within Outlook itself. Finally, you can search even more stuff, including your Gmail, files on network drives, many Outlook data types (including Contacts, Tasks, Calendar, Notes and Journal) and MSN Messenger chats. And if you yearn for even stronger security, you can encrypt your entire index.

Google wins rights to Usenet material

If it's posted then it's published

Google has won a two year legal fight for the right to publish Usenet message board material on its web site.

The case was bought after Gordon Roy Parker, who publishes his works on the internet under the name Snodgrass Publishing Group, sued Google for reprinting part of a book he wrote and posted on Usenet.

The excerpt, from the book “29 Reasons Not To Be A Nice Guy,” was cached by Google and can be accessed via the search engoine. Parker sued Google in 2004 on eleven charges, including direct copyright infringement, racketeering and invasion of privacy.

Google to broker online book sales

Still embroiled in controversy over its plans to digitize several of the world's largest library collections, Google is inviting U.S. and U.K. publishers to sell online access to their copyright texts through its book search site.

Right now, Google Book Search users can view free snippets of copyright books catalogued by its service but cannot read entire books online. They have the option of perusing a full version by clicking on links to outside booksellers or library catalogs.

The new offering would allow people to sign in and purchase immediate, browser-based access to books, Google said on its site. Purchasers would not, however, be allowed to save a copy of the book to their computer or to otherwise copy pages from the book.

Google is marketing the new program as the first of several tools intended to help book publishers boost their revenues, though it was unclear Monday how many had signed up. Pricing would remain entirely at the book publisher's discretion.

Such a business model appears similar to plans hatched last fall by Amazon.com and Random House, which is the world's largest trade publisher. The two companies announced services through which people could purchase online access to anywhere from a few pages of a book to an entire work. Book vendors would set the prices for the purchased pages.

Google deal highlights Web 2.0 boom

Google's acquisition of a tiny Web word processing maker turns the spotlight on a growing number of so-called Web 2.0 companies struggling to survive--or angling to be Google's next purchase.

The Web search giant last Thursday confirmed it had bought Upstartle, which produces the hosted word-processing service Writely.

Though a small purchase--Upstartle employed only a handful of people--Google's move is significant because it further highlights the company's interest in Web-based productivity applications, which could be considered an online alternative to Microsoft's dominant Office desktop software.

It's hard to pinpoint which Web start-ups could be bought next. But analysts and entrepreneurs expect Google and competitors like Yahoo, America Online and Microsoft's MSN unit to continue scooping up smaller, niche companies and products to fill out their offerings.

"The general pattern is that big companies let the other companies do the innovations for them," said RedMonk analyst Stephen O'Grady. "Smaller companies can do innovation in a more agile fashion outside the boundaries of a large company, and they get acquired."

The deal has also rekindled speculation over Google's future plans. Observers note that a document-creation service like Writely could complement a Google project called GDrive to provide online storage.

The company has not explicitly said what it intends to do with the Writely service, one of a growing number of services often grouped under the Web 2.0 moniker.

Google Mars

This map of Mars, published by Percival Lowell in 1895, was the result of many years spent carefully studying the Red Planet through his telescope. Now you can do the same through your web browser. In collaboration with NASA researchers at Arizona State University, we've created some of the most detailed scientific maps of Mars ever made.

If you have half as much fun exploring them as we did making them, you're in for a great time.

Firefox to get phishing shield

Google is helping the team that develops Firefox build anti-phishing technology into release 2, which is due to appear later this year

An upcoming version of Firefox will include protection against phishing scams, using technology that might come from Google.

The phishing shield is a key new security feature planned for Firefox 2, slated for release in the third quarter of this year, Mozilla's Mike Shaver said in an interview on Tuesday.

"Everybody understands that phishing is a significant problem on the Web," said Shaver, a technology strategist at the company, which oversees Firefox development. "We are putting antiphishing into Firefox, and Google is working with us on that."

With the continued rise in online attacks, security tools have become something Web browser makers can use to try to stand out. Microsoft plans to include features to protect Web surfers against online scams in Internet Explorer 7, due later in 2006. Similar functionality is already in Netscape 8 and Opera 8, both released last year.

"It is another example of the energy that has returned to the browser marker," Shaver said.
