Google may launch venture capital arm

According to the Wall St. Journal, Google is currently planning to start its own venture capital group. If true, the move would enable Google to not only seed some interesting start-ups, but also get an early foot in the door when it comes time to purchase them or reap the rewards of a later IPO.

The Journal sources say the group will be led by David Drummond, Google's senior vice president of corporate development and chief legal officer. The company has also hired entrepreneur William Maris to help set up the new VC arm.

Cuil not a Google killer - yet

Within hours of being launched Monday, Cuil - a new search engine created by former top Google engineers - was already being touted in the blogosphere as the next Google killer. But unless Cuil (pronounced ‘cool’) can develop an ad platform to rival Google’s, the startup will have a difficult time challenging the search giant.

The comparisons to Google (GOOG) were inevitable. Cuil was founded by several lead engineers from Google, including Anna Patterson, chief architect of the company’s TeraGoogle search index. Cuil also claims its search algorithm scans 120 billion web pages - three times the number that Google sifts through. And Cuil’s spare start page is reminiscent of Google’s minimalist home page.

The launch of Cuil certainly raised eyebrows at Google. Though the company would not comment on Cuil, Google’s web search team stuck it to the small search startup on Monday with a blog post that begins, “We knew the web was big….We’ve known it for a long time.”

Cuil representatives did not return phone calls.

Cuil not a Google killer - yet - Tuesday, July 29, 2008 -

Former Googlees want to out-Cuil Google

Cuil , a new search engine developed by former Google employees, is taking the stage today. It's pronounced cool, but written Cuil, and annoyingly Web 2.0 looking, but it's also a new take on search. With about $33 million in venture funding, and a bunch of search brainiacs, can Cuil make it where so many have, sort of, just made it, in a so what sort of way? It may do if today's announcement doesn't crash the site.

Cuil's search index boast 120 billion Web pages, and Google recently claimed a trillion. Numbers that take into consideration the diversity and size of the Web, but also include the crappy one pagers that are put up by domain parkers and spammers. However, a quick play with Cuil, and you'll notice that it delivers search results in a column format that is more akin to a publication layout then, a typical search result listing.The Cuil folk claim to use datamining techniques to drill down deeper into the content of a page, and provide more visual keys to help rank the relevance of pages in a search result listing.

Former Googlees want to out-Cuil Google - Monday, July 28, 2008 -

Google Index Reaches 1 Trillion URLs

Three years after Google (NSDQ: GOOG) declared that its index was three times larger than any other search engine and then declined to cite a specific number to support that claim, it was widely believed that Google had tired of index one-upmanship and that it would no longer be measuring its index.

Well, Google has its yardstick in hand once again.

Two Google engineers on Friday said that Google's index of the Web now contains 1 trillion unique URLs.

That's a lot of URLs. However, there's a lot of chaff in there. Consider that "Google" alone returns 2,740,000,000 Google search results, "Yahoo" returns 2,930,000,000, and "eBay" returns 1,080,000,000. Add up the number of results generated by searching for the top 100 keywords and you'd have a significant fraction of 1 trillion.

Google Launches Knol

Google has unveiled Knol, its version of Wikipedia, but with a difference — authors can get paid for their work, thanks to AdSense.

Yesterday Google unveiled Knol, its answer to Wikipedia. Like Wikipedia, it’s a collaborative site, but there are differences: although a collbarotive site, meaning people can add to articles, each Knol, or piece, will have a primary author, who can choose to become a verified subscriber. And, perhaps more importantly, authors can earn money through Google AdSense, although including that with the article is at the discretion of the primary author.

Google Buys Russian Ad Company

Google has spent $140 million to acquire Russian ad company ZAO Begun as it attempts to penetrate the Russian market.

Google wants to make headway in the Russian market, where it lags behind the portal Yandex. To help it increase penetration, CNET reports that the search giant is acquiring ad company ZAO Begun for $140 million in a slightly unusual deal.

Just over 50% of Begun is currently owned by Russian site Rambler Media. It’s agreed to buy the remained from another company, Bannatyne, and then sell it for cash to Google.

Begun has 40,000 advertisers and 143,000 Russian-language sites in its network, according to Rambler.

Google Docs adds templates

Steps up battle with Office software

In a bid to attract more users to its free online file editing service, Google has added templates to allow simple creation of the more mundane documents.

Often a mainstay for the more repetitive or novel tasks on such programmes as Microsoft Word or Excel, like printing mailing labels or invitation cards, Google has unleashed its own piece of the action.

The templates were created in association with Visa Business, Avery Dennison and TemplateZone among others, so at least you know they'll probably work.

Google Calendar Flaw Exposes Any Gmail User’s Real Name

Exploit reveals the ugly side of keeping data in the cloud

A bug found in the Google Calendars beta exposes the real name of anyone registered with a Gmail account.

Originally posted at the Securiteam blog, the bug allows anyone with a Google Calendar account to reveal other Gmail account holders’ (registered) real names simply by hitting the “back” button after sending an invite.

Internal testing by DailyTech finds that the bug is still active at the time of this writing.

Worse, reveals Canadian blogger Holden Karau, is that the bug works for any account in Gmail’s system, including private Gmail accounts operating under other domains.

Google/Viacom Agree To Preserve User Anonymity In Data Shakedown

The Google-Viacom showdown over the handover of YouTube user data appears to be over. The two sides agreed to changes in a previous ruling that would have required Google to hand over user id’s, IP addresses and a list of all viewed YouTube videos to Viacom in connection with their ongoing copyright infringement litigation.

After an online uprising against the order, Viacom tried to assert that they never requested personally identifiable information (they did), and later promised not to use the information to sue individuals. The value of that promise was questioned by us and many others.

Google Mobile Search App Debuts At iPhone App Store

Google (NSDQ: GOOG) is among the many developers introducing iPhone applications through Apple's iTunes App Store. On Thursday, the search company introduced Google Mobile App, a free dedicated search application for the iPhone.

Given that iPhone users can already conduct Google searches through the search window in the iPhone's Safari mobile Web browser and through the Google Maps iPhone application that comes with the iPhone, the idea of a dedicated search app might seem like an overdose of Googley goodness.

But as Google mobile engineer Robert Hamilton explains in the YouTube video below, the Google Mobile App makes a nice addition to the iPhone.


It's faster to initiate a search using the Google Mobile App than it is to open Safari and search on the iPhone.

What's more, the Google Mobile App provides search suggestions as soon as you start typing. Trivial though this may seem, it can be a real time saver to have searches auto-completed after only a few characters have been typed.

Google Launches Lively to Create a Virtual World Across Social Networks

Google has just launched Lively, a new social network built around the concept of each user creating an avatar and a personal virtual room that can be embedded anywhere on the Web. In essence, Google is looking to create a massive distributed virtual world, where every Google account can have its own avatar that can be used wherever a Lively virtual room is present – for example, on a blog, a social networking profile, or a Web page.

Here’s a closer look at what Google is launching, how it works, and how it might fit into Google’s larger social networking plans:

Getting Started

To use Lively, you do need to sign up using a Google account and download a browser plug-in. From there, you are able to create your own avatar – starting from a “template” character which then has customizable attributes like skin tone, hair color, and eye colors. You can also dress your character with clothing and accessories. In turn, you’re now ready to use Lively wherever you encounter a room on the Web by signing into it with your virtual account.

Google Teams up With eBay and PayPal to Combat Phishing

Google today announced that it has teamed up with eBay and PayPal to fight phishing scams more effectively. Starting today, Google will authenticate every email that claims to be from 'paypal.com' or 'ebay.com.' If a message fails these checks, Google will reject the message and not, as it often did before, allow it through and display a warning message.

PayPal and eBay phishing scams are probably some of the most prevalent forms of online fraud, so having Google now fully reject these messages is going to at least prevent quite a few more of these.

Google has been using DomainKeys and Domain Keys Identified Mail since 2004 and both PayPal and eBay has been using it since October 2007. So far, however, Google did not completely block all suspicious emails in order to prevent too many false positives. Now, however, Google is taking a more radical stand and will reject any message that does not authenticate.

Google Open-sources Data Exchange Language

Google has open-sourced its protocol buffers, the company's lingua franca for encoding various types of data, in order to set the stage for a wave of new releases, according to official company blog posts and documents.

"Practically everyone inside Google" uses protocol buffers, states a FAQ page. "We have many other projects we would like to release as open source that use protocol buffers, so to do this, we needed to release protocol buffers first."

Google uses "thousands of different data formats to represent networked messages between servers, index records in repositories, geospatial datasets, and more," wrote Kenton Varda, a member of Google's software engineering team, in a blog post. "Most of these formats are structured, not flat. This raises an important question: How do we encode it all?"

Google Makes Changes to Homepage, Adding Privacy Link

Boston (dbTechno) - The search engine giant Google has made a change to their homepage at google.com, by adding a privacy link.

The new privacy link on the homepage of google leads to the Google Privacy Center.

The link comes at the bottom of the page where the Google copyright logo used to be.

Yahoo: We're ready to do deal with Microsoft

Yahoo was hit with a one-two punch Monday--first a right jab from Carl Icahn, which is calling for the removal of Yahoo's entire board, and then a left hook from Microsoft, which confirmed its support for Icahn's proxy fight and said it's interested in negotiating a deal with a "new" Yahoo board.

Microsoft, in its public statement, said it could see the value in a potential Yahoo deal, to either purchase the 'search' function with large financial guarantees, or alternatively, purchase the whole company--a been there, done that attempt with Yahoo's existing board.

Yahoo counterpunched later Monday morning, issuing a statement (given here in its entirety) expressing its interest in talking to Microsoft about a buyout of the entire company, if only someone would make an actual offer, and the right kind of offer

Yahoo, AOL rushing merger talks?

Yahoo and Time Warner have spent the weekend in talks meant to accelerate a possible merger between the search engine giant and Time Warner's AOL division, says Britain's Times newspaper. Pointing only to insider sources, the publication claims Yahoo was in talks over the Independence Day weekend to speed up exploring the revived AOL deal as well as other options. Yahoo is allegedly eager to have some form of alternative deal to a Microsoft buyout of its search business in time for a crucial August 1st Yahoo shareholder's meeting.

The company is said to be worried about Microsoft taking its search business as it has no way to gauge its worth as just a content service, the paper claims.

Yahoo's top U.S. sites get traffic help from Google search

A fresh look at Yahoo's search results Thursday by Hitwise Intelligence raises the question of whether Yahoo could survive just fine without its search engine.

Such a question is rather important to Yahoo investors, given the Internet search pioneer has given a cold shoulder to Microsoft, which has previously expressed interest in buying Yahoo's search assets. Yahoo, however, rebuffed the offer, noting in its investor presentation that selling its search assets, including its algorithmic search, would:

Jeopardize the Yahoo user experience and make it difficult for Yahoo to maintain search and display volume.

But Heather Hopkins, vice president of research for Hitwise, noted in her blog that Yahoo's valuable sites would not necessarily fair poorly without Yahoo's search engine.

Google must hand over YouTube data to Viacom after court ruling

Google is to be forced to release the records of every video watched on YouTube, including user names and web addresses, to entertainment company Viacom after a US federal court ruling.

Viacom, which is pursuing a $1bn (£500m) copyright infringement lawsuit against Google, wants the information to determine the amount of copyright material on YouTube. The disclosure could increase Google's liability if Viacom wins the court case.

Google had argued that turning over the YouTube data would invade users' privacy. However, US district judge Louis Stanton ordered the internet company to hand over video records and information including login names and internet protocol addresses.

Viacom failed, however, in a bid to also secure access to the search engine giant's source code, on the grounds that doing so would threaten Google's business.

Deranged Teen In “Flying Baby" YouTube Video Arrested

Teenagers craving for attention resort to desperate, often reckless acts these days, and the case of a 16-year-old boy in Georgia is just one example of how these gestures can be taken to extreme, and have serious consequences.

The teenager released a video on YouTube that shocked the YouTube community and the entire world. In the video, he puts an 8-month-old baby on an inflatable pillow, jumps on the pillow and projects the baby across the room. The baby lands face-first before starting crying.

The entire scene seems very amusing for the deranged teenager, who wants to see if the baby can fly. He doesn’t feel any remorse for his actions, and advises viewers not to feel bad about laughing either.
