Google talks to eBay

Search giant integrating VoIP adverts with Skype

Google has teamed up with eBay to provide click-to-call adverts that work with Skype and Google Talk.

The two companies will develop a system that allows users to click a link in an advert to initiate a voice call with participating eBay merchants or Google advertisers over eBay-owned Skype or Google Talk.

Skype will bundle the Google Toolbar with future downloads and in return get a custom button on the browser add-on.

As part of the agreement, Google will also become the exclusive text-based advertising provider for eBay outside the US.

Google Desktop 4.2006.0825.1629 Beta

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.

Add Google Gadgets to customize your desktop and Sidebar, Developers: Create and share your own gadgets.

Requires Windows XP or Windows 2000 SP 3+

Microsoft: 'We Are Watching Google'

Maybe it was back in 1999 when Google took its Web site out of beta.

Or maybe it was in 2002, when the Mountain View, Calif.-based search giant launched the Google Search Appliance.

Or perhaps it was when Google launched Gmail in 2004.

If it's none of the above, then surely, Google officially threw Microsoft the gauntlet this week when it announced Google Apps for Your Domain.

"We are very serious and committed to the enterprise space," noted Matt Glotzbach, head of enterprise products at Google.

And the world's largest software vendor has noticed this threat.

Google to Microsoft: Wolf in sheep's clothing?

Google has a knack for launching (hoped for) category killer applications directly aimed at usurping existing market leaders’ positions with its reassuring “we’re not a competitive threat, we complement each other” mantra.

Matt Glotzbach, head of enterprise products at Google, on Google Apps for Your Domain vs. Microsoft Office:

The right way to view Writely and Google Spreadsheets, especially in the context of a larger business, isn't necessarily as a replacement for Word or Excel. They're the collaboration component of that.

On Google Checkout vs. eBay PayPal, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said days before its launch:

Very important to know that it is targeted at advertisers, not at general consumers….Not like PayPal at all.

Who does Google think it is kidding?

Upon Google Checkout’s release Google’s key advertiser account, eBay, prohibited Google Checkout as “Payment Services not permitted” on eBay.

Microsoft does not welcome Google Apps for Your Domain as a new, collaborative neighbor in the “cloud.” Ray Ozzie was recruited by Microsoft to “Webify everything.”

Google offers hosted communications apps

Starting Monday, organizations will be able to offer members or employees Web-based e-mail, calendar, chat and Web page publishing hosted by Google for free.

Google plans to announce on Monday a beta version of Google Apps for Your Domain, which includes Gmail with 2 gigabytes of storage, Google Calendar, Google Talk and Page Creator.

The new service is an extension of Gmail for Your Domain, a service that Google launched in beta version in February. It allows organizations to use Gmail applications with their own e-mail address, instead of the "@gmail.com" domain.

The Gmail for Your Domain test service has tens of thousands of active domains, hundreds of thousands of users and hundreds of universities registered to use it, said Dave Girouard, vice president and general manager of Google's enterprise business.

'Google Library' to world: give us 'all books in all languages,' free of charge

Google proudly announced that it is helping “bookworms everywhere find gems in the libraries around the world” with a new Library Catalog Search feature in Google Book Search.

Google continues to set its sights on the content of others in furtherance of its mission to “organize” all the world’s information.

Google takes its mission literally; For Google, all the world’s information includes “all books in all languages.” Google aims to be the world’s single virtual depository for access to every single book in the world:

Our ultimate goal is to work with publishers and libraries to create a comprehensive, searchable, virtual card catalog of all books in all languages that helps users discover new books and publishers discover new readers.

How does Google plan on obtaining “all books in all languages”?
Is it purchasing every single book in the world to compensate every single author in the world?
Is it paying not-for-profit libraries for the right to obtain the books they have paid publishers to acquire?

NO. In today’s Google world, it is the Google way, or the highway. What is the Google content acquisition way? Obtain content cost-free and exploit others’ content to Google’s financial advantage.

Google Opens Up Its Base

The key to any successful Web 2.0 deployment is the availability of an open API. It's a key that Google is now giving out for its base -- Google Base that is.

The Google Base Data API is now freely available from Google, allowing third party developers to have applications that can interact with Google Base.

Developers can now programmatically query Google Base content as well as add, insert or delete content. As is the case with Google Maps, which has spawned a cottage industry of third party sites that "mashup" Google content for specific purposes, the availability of the Google Base Data API is likely to end up with its fair share of mashups as well.

Google Base first appeared as a public beta in November of 2005. It had been in a somewhat quiet testing mode since at least a month earlier.

Some have compared it to Craigslist while others have thought of it as potential competition for eBay.

Google Base, though, is neither.

Google opens doors to Writely

The search giant's online word processor will compete with Microsoft's Office Live strategy, and a host of other players jostling for a slice of this billion-dollar market

Five months after being bought by Google, the Writely online word-processing application is now open for anyone who wants to sign up and use it.

Writely has been closed to all but its existing members since its acquisition by search giant Google back in March. But last Thursday, Google allowed anyone to join up and make use of the hosted word-processing application.

Writely is a hosted word-processing package that allows users to edit and publish documents online. The package was created by Silicon Valley software-development company Upstartle, which was started by software engineers Sam Schillace, Steve Newman and Claudia Carpenter.

The move follows speculation about whether Google intends to challenge Microsoft's Office productivity suite. Last October, Google's partnership with Sun set off intense speculation that the companies would collaborate around OpenOffice.org to create a hosted-applications suite. But the two companies merely announced that they would work together on OpenOffice, Java, OpenSolaris, and Google's Toolbar.

Google Toolbar for Firefox 2.1.20060807 Beta

Google Toolbar is a popular browser add-on that makes it possible to quickly perform Google Web searches, prevent annoying pop-up ads from appearing, and fill in Web forms with one simple click.

• Enhanced Search Box
As you type a search query into the new Toolbar's search box, you'll see a list of useful suggestions based on popular Google searches, spelling corrections and your own Toolbar search history and bookmarks. You can also click the 'G' icon in the search box to search different Google sites, the current site, or sites for which you’ve installed custom search buttons.

• Google Safe Browsing
Previously its own extension, we’ve integrated Google Safe Browsing into Google Toolbar – after all, who wouldn't want it? Google Safe Browsing alerts you if a web page that you visit appears to be asking for your personal or financial information under false pretences. This type of attack, known as phishing or spoofing, is becoming more sophisticated, widespread and dangerous. By combining advanced algorithms with reports about misleading pages from a number of sources, Safe Browsing is often able to automatically warn you when you encounter a page that's trying to trick you into disclosing personal information.

• Subscribe to Feed
You can now subscribe to your favorite web pages with just one click. Many different websites publish feeds with the latest updates to their sites so that, instead of visiting a website over and over for the latest news, you can use a feed reader to keep track of updates for you. The Toolbar will automatically detect if content of the page you are browsing is available for subscription and enable the “Subscribe” button to notify you. When enabled, simply click "Subscribe" and you'll be taken to your chosen feed reader to confirm the subscription.

• Send with Gmail
Have you been frustrated because you can’t set Gmail as your default mail client? We’ve solved that problem by adding a feature into Toolbar that automatically opens whenever you click on an email link.

• Custom Layouts
The Firefox version of Toolbar has always made it easy to put your favorite Toolbar features right where you want them – we’ve taken it one step further and provided three pre-set layouts so that you can arrange the buttons, search boxes, and other browser controls for you to make the best use of space in Firefox.

• SpellCheck
Check your spelling whenever you type in web forms

• AutoFill
Automatically fill out forms for faster online shopping

System requirements:
• Windows XP/2000 SP3+, Mac OS X 10.2+, or Red Hat Linux 8.0+
• Firefox 1.5+

Google offers to track your music habits

Google is listening; but only if you want it to.

The search giant is now offering to track the music you listen to on your computer, then publish that information anonymously for anyone to view. The new Google Labs program is called Google Music Trends.

In order to participate in voluntary eavesdropping, you must have a Gmail account and download Google Talk, Google's 1-year-old instant-messaging program. Once logged on to Google Talk, add a check mark next to the Google Music Trends option in its Settings menu.

Each time a participant listens to a song on Apple Computer's iTunes, the song information is registered by Google Music Trends via Google Talk. The program also supports Nullsoft's Winamp, Microsoft's Windows Media Player and Yahoo's Music Jukebox, according to the Google Music Trends Web site.

Google refers to this tracking as casting a vote, but more specifically, Music Trends monitors and collects information on the music you listen to on your computer.

Google Buys Company to Boost Photo Management

Neven Vision acquisition expected to bolster portal's Picasa photo management software and service.

Google plans to strengthen its Picasa photo management software and service with the acquisition of Neven Vision, a Santa Monica, California, company specializing in mobile photo search.

Adrian Graham, Picasa product manager, announced the deal in an official Google blog posting today, saying that Neven Vision brings expertise on automatically obtaining information from a photo.

"It could be as simple as detecting whether or not a photo contains a person, or, one day, as complex as recognizing people, places, and objects. This technology just may make it a lot easier for you to organize and find the photos you care about," Graham wrote.

Google Talk marks first year with upgrade

Google Talk, which is celebrating its first birthday with an upgrade, will let people easily transfer files and leave other people voice mail beginning Wednesday.

Now people who use the instant messaging and voice chat service will be able to click a "send file" button, choose which document, photo or other file to send, and transmit it through a chat window as a thumbnail that can be displayed in full size.

People also can leave each other voice mail by either initiating a call that is then unanswered or without initiating a call and going straight into voice mail. Users of Gmail, Google's e-mail service, can play the voice mail without having to download anything. But people who use other e-mail software will have to download the MP3 voice mail attachment to hear it.

Another new feature allows Google Talk users to indicate to their friends what music they are listening to via their status message. The new features will initially be available only in the English language version.

Google Talk is a key piece of the search giant's strategy to make it easy for people not only to search for any kind of information in any location, but also to communicate with each other in various ways online.

Update aims for a friendlier Blogger

Blogger, a self-publishing platform owned by Google, released on Tuesday a beta with features such as tagging, friends-only posts, and templates designed to be easier to use.

The site has long been a fixture of the self-publishing world. But now that blogging has become a genuine cultural phenomenon, Blogger has had some catching up to do.

The beta, or test version, has three major components:

• Blogs now feature labeling, which is more generically known as tagging. This means people can categorize their posts with keywords in the same manner of Flickr or Delicious.

• Posts can be "locked" and viewable only by readers whom the blog owner designates.

• Some drag-and-drop capabilities have been added to Blogger's template-editing functions--previously only controllable by a few yes/no buttons and HTML.

Only a limited number of existing Blogger users will be able to immediately download the beta, according to the company. Newly created accounts, however, will have access to beta features. So if existing Blogger users want to test-drive the beta, the company said, they can try it out with a new account that can later be merged into an existing one.

Google Unwires a City

Just as AOL is getting out of the ISP business to focus on advertising, Google today turned on free Internet access for all of Mountain View, Calif.

Google will move its Wi-Fi experiment out of its "trusted-tester" beta phase where its been since June and open the citywide secure wireless connection to anyone with a standard 802.11B or G card.

Chris Sacca, head of special initiatives for Google, said Google's free-for-download VPN, Google Secure Access, which encrypts all data transmitted from the computer, should allay security concerns.

Bandwidth will reach around 1 megabyte per second both ways.

The move comes ahead of schedule, because the community took so readily to the beta test, Sacca told internetnews.com.

But despite the enthusiasm, Google doesn't plan on pursuing the ISP business full time, Sacca said.

The point of Google Wi-Fi is to show that municipal Wi-Fi can be done.

Google offers shopping coupons

Users of Google Maps can now get special offers from 12,000 US companies

Google Maps will begin offering printable coupons for everything from pizza to car washes on Wednesday as the search giant makes a move designed to appeal to peoples' appetites for a bargain.

Online maps from Google and rivals Yahoo, Microsoft and AOL have been racing to offer the most bells and whistles to attract more eyeballs that can then be fed advertisements.

Google is the first to offer coupons, which not only appeal to cost-conscious consumers but also offer advertisers a reliable way to gauge the success of an ad campaign.

Stop Googling things, says Google

Name not synonymous with just searching, moans web giant

Google has issued letters to media organisations asking them to refrain from using its name as a verb.

In order to "protect its trademark", and prevent it becoming a generic term, the search firm has sent letters to publishers advising them on its proper use.

Google's letter includes helpful examples of appropriate and inappropriate use of the company's trademark.

For example: 'I used Google to check out that guy I met at the party' is fine, but 'I googled that hottie' is not.

Similarly, it's OK to say: 'He ego-surfs on Google to see if he's listed in the results' but not 'He googles himself.'

The key distinction is whether Google is used to describe searching in a general, non-specific sense.

Google snatches MySpace ad prize

Web search pact likely to get Yahoo!'s goat...

Google has won a highly prized deal with MySpace.com to serve web search and advertising listings to the nearly 100 million members of the News Corp-owned social network, besting rival Yahoo! in the bid.

On Monday, MySpace parent company Fox Interactive Media said it had entered into a pact with Google that spans three years and nine months and gives the search giant exclusive rights to provide web search results and sponsored links across MySpace. Google will also power search and ads for other Fox Interactive properties including RottenTomatoes.com and Scout.com. FoxSports, which is aligned with Microsoft's MSN, is not part of the deal.

Under the terms of the agreement, which will begin in the fourth quarter, Google must guarantee Fox Interactive minimum payments of $900m over three years, as long as Fox meets certain traffic and other commitments.

The deal is a blow to Yahoo! given that MySpace's advertising results have long been served up by Yahoo!'s search division. The agreement also ends a months-long hunt by MySpace for a new partner, a quest driven by growing demand among its members for web search.

On an investor conference call on Monday, News Corp president Peter Chernin characterised the deal as the first of many with Google and said that when MySpace members leave the site they typically jump to the search powerhouse. By integrating Google's technology, search will be seamless for MySpace members, he said.

Referring to a highly competitive bid for the business that included Yahoo! and all the top-tier search providers, Chernin added: "Ultimately, in the totality of the deal, Google was the preferred supplier."

Google launches malware warnings

Search giant is alerting users if they visit a site suspected of hosting malicious code

Google has started warning people when search results could potentially lead them to malicious code.

The search giant is using data from the Stop Badware Coalition to flag sites that are potentially host to malicious software. Google, along with Sun and Chinese PC maker Lenovo, announced support for the group in January.

People who attempt to go to a Web site that has been identified as risky by the coalition are taken to a warning page.

"Warning — the site you are about to visit may harm your computer!" the page states in bold type, then suggesting users can "learn more about malware and how to protect yourself at StopBadware.org".

The interrupt page suggests that users can try returning to the search page and choosing a different result, trying another search, or they can continue to the potentially malicious site.

"We're not going to say don't do it," said John Palfrey, a professor at the Harvard Law School and one of the driving forces behind the effort. "What we want to do is basically give people some more information about what might happen to their computer."

Google and MTV team up for ad-supported video

Ad-supported video continues to gain momentum online. Google has teamed up with Viacom to provide video clips to websites that are part of Google's AdSense Network. Viacom is the parent company to MTV, VH1, CBS and a number of other premium networks. The deal will be positioned as a revenue generator for Google, Viacom, and AdSense partners. All three will split revenues derived from the tie-in of advertising and content.

It will work like this: publishers (bloggers, big media, etc.) can elect to embed shows such as MTV's "Laguna Beach" or Nickelodeon's "SpongeBob Squarepants" on their own web pages in a manner similar to how YouTube supports embedded video (for an example of how this works with YouTube, see this post on Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam). The clips themselves will contain advertising sold not by Google, but by the networks' own ad sales teams. Those networks will share a portion of this revenue with Google, which will in turn share a portion of that revenue with the publishers themselves.
