Captcha Advertising    
May 3, 2010, 3:16 am | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

The illustration explains the idea pretty well: a captcha that is also an advertisement. Techi.com writes (quote linked): Currently, there is only one company that is actively working as the middleman between advertisers and webmasters in order to display CAPTCHA ads – that company is AdCopy. (...) AdCopy is currently beta testing the new form of internet advertising. Advertisers and website owners interested in trying out the service can request a beta invite into the system on...தொடர்ந்து படிக்கவும் »

Built By Google    
January 10, 2010, 9:53 am | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

Pete logs onto his desktop computer. It’s a “dumb” netbook built by Google and called Google Chrome Superbook 5, with a fast startup time of 0.3 seconds, the point at which the Google engineers figured further optimizations were not useful, in terms of limitations of human perception. The mouse next to the computer is also made by Google. It includes some technical wizardry that Pete was happy to wait for when he ordered it online in the Google web store: the mouse automatically logs him...தொடர்ந்து படிக்கவும் »

Google Guru?    
December 18, 2009, 12:10 am | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

Chris writes in to say he’s spotted a new service on his Google account services page: “Google Guru”, which points towards guru.google.com/guru/ ... which is non-existent at the moment. The account page reads, “Guru ... Ask questions and get answers from online users”. Google Russia and Poland already have user-powered questions and answers services. So does Thailand, apparently, and there the URL contains the name guru, too – along with a somewhat similar green question mark...தொடர்ந்து படிக்கவும் »

Barnes & Noble eBook Reader with Android and Google Books    
October 20, 2009, 11:08 pm | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

Wired reports on a new eBook reader called Nook, released by Barnes & Noble. “Nook looks a lot like Amazon’s white plastic e-book reader, only instead of the chiclet-keyboard there is a color multitouch screen, to be used as a keyboard or to browse books, cover-flow style ... The $260 Nook ... is expected to be on sale at the end of November.” Wireless capability will come from AT&T. Interestingly, Wired says that Nook “runs Google’s Android OS” and will be able “to get books from...தொடர்ந்து படிக்கவும் »

Google Editions, a Coming eReader Bookstore?    
October 16, 2009, 6:58 am | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

PC World writes: Google revealed its intention to launch an online bookstore dubbed Google Editions sometime in early 2010. Google plans to open for business with about 500,000 available titles from a variety of publishers. The new service will provide ebooks in a browser-centric, eReader-agnostic manner that will muddy the eReader water even more than it is today. According to the article Google Editions is “entirely separate from Google Book Search” and that the service “would pay out...தொடர்ந்து படிக்கவும் »

Sergey Brin About Google Books    
October 11, 2009, 10:16 am | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

Google co-founder Sergey Brin in an interesting article in the New York Times writes about Google Books, orphaned book works, the Google Books Settlement, and the desire to create an accessible library. He makes the point that one of his main interests is progress in general, not necessarily to Google’s benefit, saing “if we don’t get our product right, then others will. But one thing that is sure to halt any such progress is to have no settlement at all.” He argues that “If Google Books...தொடர்ந்து படிக்கவும் »

Should Google Give Us Browser Market Stats?    
August 22, 2009, 5:13 am | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

Mozilla’s Asa Dotzler says: There was a time, several years ago, when Google included browser usage stats in its Zeitgeist reports. (...) Google stopped including the browser breakdown in those regular reports. Google is in a pretty special position with the breadth of their usage so their browser breakdown could give the entire industry a much better picture of the Web than what we currently get from analytics firms like Net Applications and StatCounter [Via Ionut.] [By Philipp Lenssen...தொடர்ந்து படிக்கவும் »

Searching for a Unicode Character    
April 14, 2009, 7:01 pm | தலைப்புப் பக்கம்

When you enter a Unicode character like ⚧ into Google to learn more about its meaning, you won’t get any results. Instead, you can try a special Unicode character search engine. (An alternative method if you do want to use Google is to first convert the Unicode character into e.g. an HTML entity number, and then search Google for that number plus the keyword “unicode”.)
