Google owns sexpornotits.com and thousands more

04.23.2008 @ 4:02 PM in Technology
Seeing as Google owns pretty much everything else, why would it suprise us that they own thousands of domains? Pingdom has done what they do best (ping of course!) and compiled a giant list of all the domains owned (or merely pointed) by Google. Some of my favorites....
  • gmailblows.com
  • googleporn.com
  • googlepoo.com
  • googlemotherfucker.com
  • mariolovespasta.com
  • frooglesucks.com
  • googleclusters.com
  • bayareaburritos.com
  • hostedbygoogle.com

Online Nickname Googles better than realname?

buffawhat___Google_Image_Search1.jpg Asked a Slashdotter:
"I was recently laid off, and during several of the interviews looking for a new job as a mid level IT manager, I was asked "So, I can just Google your name and find some of your work?" The answer is "yes", but searching for my name doesn't really bring up many results compared to searching for my online nickname which I have been using for about a decade. I am very tempted just to put that nickname on my resume. Is the professional, albeit technical, world ready for this step? Where should I put it? At the top or somewhere in the body?"
I've thought about this from time to time. I hate to Google my real name because there is another Nathan Strang in the world and I don't like him or his piloting ways. Never met him and I don't care. He's all up in my search results, and he needs to quit. Google "Buffawhat" however and you get pretty much the same information, plus almost every social networking profile I participate in. Of course, minus the other Nathan Strang, because there is only one Buffawhat. Your online identity is becoming more and more unique and important as the web starts to tie up its loose ends and integration is becoming more complex. And as I let myself beknown around buffalo as "Buffawhat," I feel my name will soon become less relevant than my moniker. Any thoughts? how integral is your online identity to your real self?

There is no Gphone, but are there Android T-shirts?

Google's being officially "no" at the moment about an actual Gphone, instead insisting that all the hubbub is really about Android, the open source mobile platform that the've put together. Today was the release of an early look of the SDK, which when released in full in 2008, will allow anyone to develop complete full functioning programs for the Android platform. Along with this, google dropped a few more videos, highlighting a first look at the software in the works. [youtube width="600" height="501"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FJHYqE0RDg[/youtube] Those Android guys are really smart cookies, however video presenters they aren't. No matter, because a few coders were seen wearing Android T-shirts, which forgave them any faults. That shirt is going to be the ultimate geek gift for Christmas (besides the XO, of course) if anyone can get their hands on this. androidshirt.jpg

Introducing Android from Google, your new mobile overlords, err, saviors

11.05.2007 @ 12:28 PM in Technology
openhandsetalliance For the record, this isn't ALL from Google, thirty-four companies have come together to help develop the first globally open, comprehensible mobile OS platform. They are the Open Handset Alliance, and the project is called Android. Stay tuned for the breakdown after this introduction from a few of the co-creators. Notice the abundance of handsome bears collaborating in this video, this has to be a good thing, eh? [youtube width="600" height="501"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6x0zZsqI3s[/youtube] Alright.

the industry today:

  • A cell phone has a operating system just like your laptop does. It boots, sets up its service and even runs out of memory and freezes just like your laptop does. But what it can't do is offer you the freedom to truly put whatever you want on your phone, "bend it to your will."
  • We have Windows Mobile, Symbian, Linux(in a cut down format, but yep), Java, OSX (teh iphone), and a few others, but they all get locked down and crippled by either the phone, the manufacturer, or the service you pay for.
  • There is also very little cross compatibility. I can send a file to my friend's little nokia over bluetooth with my RAZR, but I can't do the same thing to my other friend's more advanced enVy.
  • And I don't want to talk about Verizon's lockdown red OS hacks of impotence that gets tossed on near every phone with their check marked logo.
  • One more thing, web browsing is sill a joke unless you are on an iPhone or a Nokia n95.

What Android will do:

  • Android is a complete mobile platform, combining a robust and secure open source operating system with full functioning productivity software created to help you manage your 21st century life.
  • A SDK which when unveiled on November 12, will guide developers in creating stable and transferable applications that can run across the board.
  • Open source. You can't stick it to the man because there really isn't one. Ok, I'm sure Google will have a noticeable shadow in all of this, but they own your soul anyway. Give up and embrace.
  • The frickin web will bust wide open as Android and the OHA will help bring the full internet to your phone.
  • Since android is freely delivered to phone developers, there is no licensing costs to use the OS. This means that the consumer doesn't get raped.
  • so many possibilities, just guess and that could be the future.

When will it get here?

  • sooner than you think. expect T-mobile and Sprint to release the Android powered phones around the first half of 2008, maybe March.
  • 3G will play a big part in delivering speed of service, and data plans may not be too unlike the iPhone's.
  • International folks will get their Android on later in 2008.
