Google Maps now offers a hybrid view which combines their map view with their satellite view. The Google blog has a notice on the update. It appears to use 8-bit alpha transparent PNGs to make it work.

Orkut Linked To Drug Ring Bust

0 comments

Google's Orkut service has been allegedly used to sell drugs by a Brazilian outfit, according to a BBC news report. According to the report, the dealers offered pot and ecstasy for sale via the system to Brazil's large Orkut user community. Google is reported to be investigating. One interesting issue that springs to mind is: how can you monitor and moderate such a large, multilingual community such as Orkut? And what are the limits of criminal liability in a case like this?

Google and Microsoft Lob More Lawsuits

0 comments

According to a Business Week article Google has filed a counter-suit against Microsoft in reaction to the lawsuit that Microsoft filed when a corporate VP left to join the ranks of Google. Microsoft claims that the VP violated his non-compete agreement and Google claims that Microsoft is violating California laws giving workers the right to change jobs. Interestingly enough, the VP in question never lived in California!

Google's Share of Searches Falling? Or Increasing?

0 comments

Get two research companies in the room, and you'll likely end up with three opinions. Bear Sterns quotes ComScore Networks data, which says that Google's share of searches is slipping, down to 36.9% in June 2005. WebSideStory, a Web research company, on the other hand, claims that in June 2005 Google hit a new record as far as share of searches, hitting 52%, and leaving rivals far behind.

Someone's cooked up a form for finding Google Video results with only playable video in them; try it at http://www.strix.org.uk/misc/video.google/index.php.
The site also points out that the special syntax source. upload can be used directly at Google Video. I found that a little bit faster, though I appreciated how many clips the Strix.org.uk site would load on the page at a time.

The Google money is here so Look Out for Googlers. They are buying lots of the homes in the elite Atherton area(California, US) just minutes from the Google headquarters in Mountain View as Wall Street Journal says. Looks like Google effects traffic to more than just your website.

Google Moon, a one week project by google

0 comments




Google launches Google Moon today. As Google says, it is just one week project suggested by Chikai, a google earth engineer a week earlier.
From the FAQ: 'One small step for Google... On July 20, 1969, man first landed on the Moon. A few decades later, we're pleased to cut you in on the action. Google Moon is an extension of Google Maps and Google Earth that, courtesy of NASA imagery (thanks, guys!), enables you to surf the Moon's surface and check out the exact spots that the Apollo astronauts made their landings.'

Google's Site Ranking Secrets

0 comments

Ever wonder how Google's site ranking works? Wonder no more. Google recently filed United States Patent Application 20050071741 on March 31, 2005. This patent reveals a great deal of information about Google's site ranking algorithm and makes very good reading. For example, one of the criteria that they use is the number of years that your site has been registered. If your site has been registered for less than a year, then it counts against you. A site registered for a longer period of time means that the owner is probably serious about the site, and the site is probably legitimate. Google's Site Ranking algorithms reveal how hard they are making it for spam sites to get listed (on Google). This information will also make it easier for you to make sure that you get listed well in Google.

Google Sued Over Click Fraud

2 comments

A seller of online marketing tools has sued Google over click fraud, accusing it of failing to protect clients from spurious clicks over web ads. The suit claims damages of $5 million and is seeking class action status. Sites get money per click from the advertisers. Rival companies of the advertiser may employ people to repeatedly click on the advertisers link on Google costing them large amount of money. Google denied the allegations. From the article: 'We believe the suit is without merit and we will defend ourselves against it vigorously.'

Cracking the Google Code... Under the GoogleScope

0 comments

From the analysis of the code behind Google's patents: "Google's sweeping changes confirm the search giant has launched a full out assault against artificial link inflation & declared war against search engine spam in a continuing effort to provide the best search service in the world... and if you thought you cracked the Google Code and had Google all figured out ... guess again. ... In addition to evaluating and scoring web page content, the ranking of web pages are admittedly still influenced by the frequency of page or site updates. What's new and interesting is what Google takes into account in determining the freshness of a web page."

Google Wallet to Compete With Paypal

0 comments

Google plans to offer an electronic-payment service that could help the Internet-search company diversify its revenue and may heighten competition with eBay's PayPal unit. Codenamed Google Wallet, a payment service could represent a significant expansion beyond online advertising, which generated 99% of its $3.2 billion in revenue last year. Google's move could potentially threaten eBay's successful PayPal service, which generated $233.1 million, or 23% of eBay's revenue in the first quarter.

Numrange, search for a range of numbers.

0 comments

Lots of times I've wanted to search for something that involved a range of numbers - and I discovered that I can. It turns out you can use two periods (no spaces) to have your search include multiple numbers that form a range. For example, if you wanted to search for inventions of the late 19th century, you could use inventions 1850..1899. I got to know about this feature when I was trying to track down the hottest recorded temperature on Earth. I knew it happened in Death Valley, but couldn't remember what it was. I found it by searching for death valley 130..140 degrees."

Google Suggest, the best a search engine can do

0 comments


You might have heard of this cool new tool which is still under developement. the name is "Google Suggest".The current address for this tool is www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en . i have never seen such an efficient use of javascript over net. when u start typing a search string in the text box, a js dropdown list of top 10 possible search strings with the no. of results google database contains.
the tool Google Suggest is still in its beta and google is going to release its final version soon. However, if u r using Firefox Browser, you dont need to type the whole address for google suggest or even bookmark it. There are extensions available on the Firefox site which are used to enable Google suggest whenever u open normal Google search page.
I personally use and suggest you Firefox for browsing pleasure and to avail lots of its great features in comparison to old useless Internet Explorer. Lots of extensions, enhancements and many more things make Firefox much superier than IE.

0 comments

Hi my name is Gautam Kishore. I have been studying and researching lots about Google Inc. and i found that its a really great company. I don't think technology is improving itself faster anywhere else. As I keep watching all the developements it does in the field and also I keep analysing and comparing its work with other competitors.
So I just thought to start an unofficial blog for google and its emerging technologies. Through this blog I will keep you informed and will discuss about new things coming outta Google box.
I should let you know that this blog is not in any way affilated with or supported by or sponsored by Google Inc.
I will appreciate the comments and suggestions from you guys, you are always welcome. You can mail me at gautamkishore@gmail.com .
