  • 1000 @Google Talks videos now on YouTube
    March 21, 2011
    Last week, the @Google Talks team uploaded its 1000th video to YouTube. If you’re not familiar with this series, we host talks by authors and commentators at Google, and post videos of their readings and talks on a dedicated YouTube channel.

    Authors@Google began in the fall of 2005 when we noticed that some amazing people were passing through the Google hallways. A few scrappy Googlers galvanized to create a more consistent pipeline of requests and a formalized program that kicked off with Malcolm Gladwell and James Surowiecki. As Google
  • New in-ads notice label and icon
    March 21, 2011
    You've probably noticed that AdWords ads appearing on your site have a special "i" icon that expands to an "Ads by Google" label in the bottom corner of the ad. Users who click this label are taken to a page where they learn more about online advertising and the ads they've seen. Giving users clear notice about the ads they see is a high priority for Google and for many in the online advertising industry at large.

    We'll soon start to change our in-ads notice icon to a new icon that expands to an "AdChoices" label. These notifications were developed
  • Enomaly chooses Google App Engine for SpotCloud.com
    March 21, 2011
    SpotCloud.com is the realization of a dream originating more than 7 years ago when we first started Enomaly. SpotCloud was born from a desire to change the way cloud computing is bought and sold for the better by overcoming the inefficiencies (including large capital commitments and low utilization rates) that beset the traditional models. SpotCloud is the first multi-supplier, multi-buyer model of cloud computing, all built on Google App Engine.
    SpotCloud is the first marketplace where service providers can sell their unutilized or under

  • Switch to Gmail
    March 21, 2011

    Switching email accounts can be painful. The idea of losing years of accumulated contacts and messages can sound daunting, to say the least. Luckily, switching to Gmail doesn’t mean you have to start totally fresh.

    Back in 2009 we announced tools that let you import mail and contacts from other providers, such as AOL or Hotmail. Today we’re announcing the addition of fourteen more international domains to our list of supported email providers:
    • aol.com.br
    • hotmail.es
    • hotmail.it

  • Happy Birthday Google Finance!
    March 21, 2011
    Posted by Karolina Netolicka, Product Manager and Laura Hughes, Consumer Operations

    Google Finance
    celebrates its fifth birthday today. We thought this would be a great
    opportunity to look back on the last five years and highlight some of
    the most exciting features we have launched.

    Finance launched on March 21, 2006 with pricing data from the New York
    Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, Amex and Euronext. Our most innovative feature
    at the time was the now-familiar interactive chart that seamlessly
    scrolled, zoomed, and showed a timeline

  • Now Playing: the YouTube Symphony Orchestra Augmented Reality Experiment
    March 21, 2011

    The YouTube Symphony Orchestra is built on technology and innovation–musicians audition by uploading videos of themselves performing, and then YouTube viewers select who they want to participate in the live-streamed performance.

    March 21, 2011
    Two weeks ago, we announced that we are preparing a visual upgrade to Orkut’s interface. We have just started to roll it out to a small percentage of users, so some of you might start to see it. Right now, we are only upgrading those who are using new Orkut, but if you are in the old interface, please do give it a try when we complete the transition!

  • She Wore an Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeny, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini…
    March 21, 2011
    Bikini season is just around the corner. With record low temperatures and massive snowstorms this year, people’s attention is focused on the warm weather ahead. Swimsuit searches have been on the rise since January, with interests being focused primarily on one-pieces and tankinis. It seems that she will not be wearing a teeny weeny bikini this year!

    Could there be an association with extreme cold temperatures and extra swimsuit coverage? Google Insights for Search shows that one
