Google Helps State Governments Open Up


Some privacy watchdogs, while applauding efforts to open government, nonetheless question whether the Google initiative will make too much information available online. Many public records contain confidential information that can be used to commit identity theft. Public agencies do not have a terrific record of protecting such information.

Four states -- Arizona, California, Utah, and Virginia -- announced plans on Monday to team up with Google to improve access to public information stored on government Web sites. The initiative is intended to address the fact that while an increasing amount of state information is online, it often can be difficult for members of the public to locate.

In a statement announcing the partnerships, Eric Schmidt, Google's chairman and CEO, said that Google is involved in several efforts to help government agencies improve public access to information.

Yahoo Inc. will buy the rest of Right Media Inc. for about $680 million, in a move to boost the reach of Yahoo's advertising to social network sites, which marketers have struggled to reach.

So now both Google and Yahoo have decided to buy rather than build their own display-ad networks.

Out-Googling Google


Chinese search engine Baidu dominates its homeland, but rivals are bearing down.

"I get it," the Western man says, speaking heavily accented Chinese. Surrounded by beautiful Chinese women in the video advertisement, he grins with self-satisfaction.

Nearby, a suave Chinese man dressed in scholar's robes laughs. "You don't necessarily get it," he says. As the ad unfolds, the Chinese scholar proceeds to humiliate the Westerner, mocking his poor Chinese-language skills. In the end, the women flock to the scholar's side, and the Westerner is left confused, alone and humiliated.

"Baidu understands Chinese better," the Baidu.com advertisement says, needling the company's former investor and current rival, Google. And statistics seem to bear that out: Baidu accounts for 62 percent of the country's search traffic, up from 52 percent in 2005, according to the China Internet Network Information Center in Beijing. For Western companies trying to establish a Web presence in China, understanding how Baidu plays the game could be key.

Google Earth asked to move town


Chile has asked Google to correct its popular online mapping service that shows a southern Chilean town named after a national hero as part of neighbouring Argentina.

Villa O'Higgins, a town of about 400 residents near the glacier-encrusted tip of South America, was named after Bernardo O'Higgins, a revered commander of military forces that won Chile's independence from Spain.

YouTube hosts Authors @ Google: Beware, NO talking back!


YouTube’s top marketing exec Suzie Reider is fond of extolling the real “conversations” that YouTube hosted videos spark amongst YouTubers, warning prospective marketers not to “mess up” the “authentic” YouTube community.

Why then does Google not wish to spark authentic conversation around its own videos that it posts to YouTube?

Google proudly promotes its “Authors @ Google” program bringing “authors of all stripes to Google for informal talks centering on their recently published books.”

Moreover, Google shares “these remarkable conversations with the world outside the Googleplex via YouTube.”

Google suspends advertising deemed fraudulent


San Francisco — Google Inc. yanked paid advertisements linked to some 20 search terms that online criminals had hijacked to steal banking and other personal information from Web surfers looking for the Better Business Bureau and other sites.

It was unclear how many people were affected before the breach was discovered this week, but computer security experts said Thursday the attack appears to be isolated and only targeting Windows XP users who had not properly updated their machines.

Google Voice Local Search


Google Voice Local Search is Google’s experimental service to make local-business search accessible over the phone.

To try this service, just dial 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411) from any phone.

Using this service, you can:

- search for a local business by name or category.
You can say "Giovanni's Pizzeria" or just "pizza".

- get connected to the business, free of charge.

- get the details by SMS if you’re using a mobile phone.
Just say "text message".

And it's free. Google doesn’t charge you a thing for the call or for connecting you to the business. Regular phone charges may apply, based on your telephone service provider.

Note: Google Voice Local Search is still in its experimental stage. It may not be available at all times and may not work for all users. We’re fine-tuning the service to get better at recognizing your requests. It’s currently only available in English, in the US, for US business listings.

Unsure about compatibility? Google your date


Dating used to be largely a matter of spending time with a love interest, discovering the good, the bad and the ugly in person. If you were lucky, friends helped fill in some of the blanks.

These days, the Internet — and the ability to check people out before they ever meet up — has forever changed the rules.

For better or worse, “googling” your date has become standard practice.

Google Apologizes to Sohu.com for 'Mistake'


Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) has apologized to Sohu.com after the Chinese Web portal accused the search giant of illegally incorporating its data in a recently released Google tool that aims to make inputting Chinese characters easier.

The tool, called the "Pinyin Input Method Editor," is similar in concept to the autofill function in many applications, which suggests a word or term after a user has typed in only a few letters, based on previous usage. The Google tool suggests Chinese characters after a user has typed in a few strokes. Sohu.com, one of China's largest portals, has accused Google of stealing its Chinese language dictionary.

While not addressing the allegations directly, Google has apologized. "We are willing to face up to our mistake, and offer an apology to users and to the Sohu company," Google says in a statement.

Google Image Labeler


Google Image Labeler is a new feature of Google Image Search that allows you to label random images to help improve the quality of Google's image search results.

You'll be randomly paired with a partner who's online and using the feature. Over a 90-second period, you and your partner will be shown the same set of images and asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner's label, you'll earn some points and move on to the next image until time runs out. After time expires, you can explore the images you've seen and the websites where those images were found. And we'll show you the points you've earned throughout the session.

Just an interest in helping Google improve the relevance of image search results for users like yourself. Although you do not have to log in to your Google account to help, logging in will allow you to keep track of your points. You can also choose to provide a nickname, or you can remain anonymous.

Google leaders stay with $1-a-year pay


CEO, two founders live off stock sales

SAN FRANCISCO // The three billionaires who run Google Inc. collected less than $600,000 in combined compensation last year, but they raked in big jackpots by selling some of their holdings in the online search leader.

The total amount that Google paid its chief executive, Eric Schmidt, and co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin during 2006 would have been less than $5,200 if not for personal security and transportation costs, according to documents filed yesterday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Thai King video wag pulls YouTube clip


Site still blocked, however

The creator of a 44 second skit on Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, which yesterday prompted Thailand to block YouTube, has voluntarily removed the video, Reuters reports.

The offending vid outraged Thai Buddhists principally because of "the juxtaposition of a pair of woman's feet, the lowest part of the body, above his [Adulyadej's] head, the highest part of the body".

Thailand asked Google to remove the video, but it declined.

Google My Maps is Your Maps


Google today launched a new mapping feature that lets anyone be a cartographer. Well, almost.

My Maps allows users to mark locations on a map from a library of icons, draw lines and shapes to highlight paths and areas, and add text, photos, or YouTube/Google videos. Users can also add HTML to their maps, a Google spokeswoman told internetnews.com.

Google Maps product manager Jessica Lee told internetnews.com the goal for My Maps was to make Google Maps into a platform for "creating, publishing and finding" geographic content. She said the process started with the Maps API that Google opened last year, which she said is popular but limited to developers.
