Google buys JotSpot, dips into wiki world


Google has bought JotSpot, a 3-year-old company with a system for building collaborative Web pages called wikis.

JotSpot co-founder and CEO Joe Kraus announced the acquisition on a blog Tuesday morning, saying that being part of search giant Google will give JotSpot access to "world-class" data centers and engineers.

Details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Earlier this month, Google shook up the online landscape with its $1.65 billion purchase of video-sharing phenomenon YouTube.

Google's efforts to offer hosted applications, such as word processors and spreadsheets, mesh with JotSpot's strategy to build online productivity applications, Kraus wrote.

"We watched them acquire Writely, and launch Google Groups, Google Spreadsheets and Google Apps for Your Domain. It was pretty apparent that Google shared our vision for how groups of people can create, manage and share information online," he wrote.

JotSpot's product is a platform for building wiki-based applications. For example, the company has an online spreadsheet and calendar that multiple people can edit.

Google apologises for Blogger outages


Legacy hardware difficulties caused multiple outages this week, affecting many bloggers

Internet search giant Google has apologised for a series of "unplanned outages" on its Blogger site over the past week.

Google's blogging service experienced five outages, both planned and unplanned, due to "power failures, fileserver trouble, and wonky network hardware", according to Pete Hopkins, a Google programmer and blogger.

Major Blogger troubles began on Saturday with an outage that lasted more than three hours, caused by the failure of both a "critical component and its backup", according to the Blogger Status blog.

Hopkins wrote: "Blogger had a significant number of unplanned outages this last week (forgive me my euphemisms?) and a handful of planned ones to clean up from the unplanned ones."

Google releases customisable search


A new Google tool will let people use Google's search platform to create search engines focused on the content of their choice.

With the Google Custom Search Engine, announced by the company on Monday in the US, Web site and blog publishers can provide custom results most relevant to their readers, incorporating a site's online community and its ability to provide contextual ads.

The customised search engines can also be tailored to aesthetically match any Web site.

The search engine can be customised quickly by choosing keywords and a list of sites the publisher wants included in the search index. These can be the only sites searched, or simply the ones with the highest priority. Alternately, users can exclude sites from the search index.

After entering the information, a line of code will appear. The custom search engine can be hosted on a user's site. Currently, anyone can put a Google search box on their site, but the results are hosted by Google.com.

Cyber-criminals clone Google Italy site


'Evil twin' site attempts to infect visitors with Trojans

Cyber-criminals have created an "evil twin" website which aims to dupe unsuspecting visitors into believing that they are visiting the Google Italy site.

IT security firm SurfControl said today that it is currently tracking the malicious website, which attempts to install ActiveX controls on a visitor's PC.

The site uses 'typo-squatting' to ensnare victims, a technique that mimics a legitimate domain using a slightly different spelling. It has been configured to deliver a fraudulent Google Italy page that looks identical to the original.

Google launches classroom project


Weeks into a new school year, Google has started courting K-12 teachers with a resource guide on how to use its applications in the classroom.

Late Wednesday, the search giant launched the site Google for Educators. The site includes how-to video tutorials for products like Blogger; lesson plans for applications like Google Earth; and links to a training academy to become a "Google certified teacher," a pilot program for teachers to learn about technology.

"We think of this site as a platform of teaching resources--for everything from blogging and collaborative writing to geographical search tools and 3D modeling software--and we want you to fill it in with your great ideas," according to Google's site.

With the educators' site, Google continues a run on diversifying its business. Earlier this week, the company announced a $1.65 billion acquisition of video-sharing Web site YouTube.

Google and BEA in enterprise portal mash-up talks


Google and BEA are in talks about partnering on a new initiative that will allow organisations to create mash-ups between enterprise portals and applications such as Google Maps.

As part of the partnership BEA will get access to some of Google's hidden application programming interfaces (APIs), which will allow developers to create mash-ups using a new technology feature in BEA's WebLogic Portal, called Adrenaline.

The Adrenaline technology allows portal applications to run on other websites outside of the portal framework, using Ajax and iFrames web development techniques, while still keeping it managed as part of the portal.

Skip Sauls, senior product manager for WebLogic Portal at BEA, told silicon.com: "It allows you to take those applications and expose them to a web 2.0 front end but still manage them within the portal environment. It runs on the WebLogic Portal server so you still have access to all the freedoms, personalisation and security but you can render in a different fashion."

Sauls said BEA has been in talks with Google for "two to three weeks" and has been given access to hidden APIs. BEA is also looking at Yahoo! for a similar initiative but Sauls said no talks have yet started on that front.

Google Docs: Spreadsheets, Writely on The Web


Google is scheduled to officially launch Google Docs & Spreadsheets later today at the Office 2.0 Conference in San Francisco.

Docs is a Web-based word-processing and spreadsheet that Google said is designed to make it easier for people to create, manage, and share documents and spreadsheets online.

Google Spreadsheets had been in beta testing since June. Back then, product manager Jonathan Rochelle told internetnews.com the product’s "biggest wow feature" is the ability for multiple users to simultaneously edit spreadsheets and chat.

Rochelle said in time Google would add features to the product beyond its spreadsheet capabilities.

That time has arrived.

Now, with a Google Account, a compatible Web browser, and an Internet connection, users can export and import a wider variety of file formats. There’s now an option to publish the documents to a blog or as an HTML page, too.

Google buys YouTube


I didn't think it would happen, but it did: Google has agreed to buy YouTube for $1.65 billion in stock. The news comes after a cornucopia of press releases announcing Google and YouTube deals to distribute music videos from Universal, Sony, Warner Music, and CBS, paving the way for a relatively risk-free buyout from Google's perspective.

In the conference call accompanying the press release, the founders of both companies unanimously professed their excitement about the deal, saying that it's a great fit on many different levels. Eric Schmidt said that it was about vision, not about business, and that the YouTube guys reminded him of the early days of Google. Sergei Brin added that video content is certainly information, so the acquisition fits with Google's stated mission of organizing all the world's info.

Google to buy YouTube for $1.6bn - reports


Google is close to buying YouTube for $1.6bn, according to reports. Props for the scoop, if the talks pan out, go to TechCrunch, the Red Herring of the Web 2.0 Generation, which today reported this "completely Unsubstantiated Google/YouTube Rumor". The WSJ today also says that Google and YouTube are negotiating and mention $1.6bn as the price. But this could merely mean that the two publications have the same source.

According to the WSJ, the talks are at a sensitive stage and could break off. Which would be madness on YouTube's part, if it was doing the breaking. This enormously popular bazaar of video pratfalls, US government propaganda and stolen TV and film clips, needs a sugar daddy.

Cuban Scoffs at Google, YouTube Rumors


WASHINGTON -- "Should Google buy YouTube?" It was the first question asked of keynote speaker Mark Cuban Friday afternoon at an Online News Association conference.

"They'd be crazy," Cuban shot back.

The question came amid a swirl of blog and media stories that Google is negotiating to buy the popular online video site for as much as $1.6 billion. The rumor originally appeared Thursday night on the Techcrunch blog.

"Rumors are rumors and just that," Cuban said.

Google told internetnews.com Friday it does not comment on rumor and speculation. YouTube did not respond to telephone or e-mail inquiries for comment.

Cuban, who made his fortune in the 1990s by founding and then selling MicroSolutions and Broadcasting.com, is a frequent critic of YouTube, claiming the popular online video site will eventually run afoul of U.S. copyright laws, much like the original Napster.

The closely held YouTube of San Mateo, Calif., claims more than 100 million videos are viewed daily on its site, making it the No. 2 video site on the Internet behind MySpace.

The videos range from home productions to television clips. Even the home videos, however, use copyrighted material such as individuals lip-synching to popular songs.

"Once you go commercial, once you have to monitor for copyright violations, your whole business model changes," Cuban said. "They [YouTube] are going to get crushed."

Google gives developers code-search capabilities


Users will be able to search billions of lines of publicly available code using Google 's new code-search Web site

Google is taking its search expertise to one of its favourite audiences: software developers.

On Thursday the company is expected to launch a Web site, Google Code Search, which the company says will let programmers search billions of lines of code.

The service, conceived by the Google Labs early technology group, will crawl publicly available code, most of which is made available through open source projects. The search and indexing can cover code on Web pages as well as code that resides in compressed files, said Tom Stocky, a product manager at Google.

Google expects that the search engine will be used primarily as a learning tool to help students and serious programmers, rather than a way to find and copy another person's code.

Google takes a bigger bite of Big Apple


Google, headquartered in Mountain View, Calif., is hoping to make it big in New York City.

After a year of speculation, the company on Monday officially opened a new, bigger and more Google-y office in the Big Apple in the trendy Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan.

The company, which has had an advertising sales presence in Manhattan since 2000, moved its more than 500 New York City employees into the new office at 111 Eighth Ave. and invited the press to take a sneak peek at its new digs. The office, specially designed and built for Google, houses the company's largest advertising sales team. And it's also home to the largest engineering group outside of the main office in Mountain View, Calif.

While Google is a global company with 8,000 employees throughout the world, New York City has become a key location--both in terms of generating revenue and developing new products. And the company is hoping to expand its headcount in the New York office during the next couple of years, executives said.

Google's New York-based advertising team has been instrumental in securing big partnerships, including recent deals with MySpace and AOL, said Tim Armstrong, vice president of advertising sales.

Google added an engineering staff to New York City in 2003. Since then, more than 100 engineering projects have been housed in New York, including: Google Maps, Google Spreadsheets, parts of Google Checkout, Google Blog Search and Google Mobile Search.

Craig Nevill-Manning, engineering director in New York for Google, said that New York City is ripe with software engineering talent.

Google gets nostalgic with garage buy


Goes back to its roots

Google has gone back to its roots and, in the style of HP, has bought the house and garage in which founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin first established the company. The company has not said how much it paid for the property.

Page and Brin rented the garage from Susan Wojcicki, then a friend of an ex of Brin's, now vice president of product management at Google. She needed some money to help pay her mortgage and for five months Brin and Page made the garage their second home.

According to reports they also helped themselves to plenty of frozen pizza from Wojcicki's freezer.

The garage has, apparently, already become something of a tourist attraction. Google asked reporters not to publish the house address because bus tours have already become a local nuisance.
