Google Inc. () is an American multinational corporation which provides Internet-related products and services, including Internet search, cloud computing, software and advertising technologies. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google]
Internet search phenomenon Google has overtaken a swathe of venerable rivals to become the world's biggest media company by stock market value.
Some analysts believe Google's shares are now overpriced, a rerun of the heady valuations seen during the internet boom of the late 1990s.
Initially, Google got 10,000 queries per day compared with 200 million today.

Chromium OS is an open-source project that aims to build an operating system that provides a fast, simple, and more secure computing experience for people who spend most of their time on the web. In this small post I provide you the URL to a binary build, and a small how to install it on a USB stick.
After 2 seconds boot time, and the login screen, you should see the following:
Extract ChromeOS-Cherry.img and run the following command in the same directory as the file, where X is the device name of your USB drive.
# sudo dd if=ChromeOS-Cherry.img of=/dev/X bs=4M
Once the command finishes, you can then boot from the USB drive
Download Image Writer for Windows (http://bit.ly/7gRu0n) and extract the program. Launch the program, and select the image (ChromeOS-Cherry.img) and your USB drive letter from the drop down box. Click "Write". The install image will then be copied to the drive. Once it's done, close the program and you can then boot from the USB drive.
Firstly, unmount the drive you want to install Chromium OS to. Place the downloaded file onto your desktop. Open System Profiler, click USB on the list at the side and then select the entry that represents your USB disk. Now look for the BSD Name column (http://bit.ly/5mG4WK), ie disk1
open up Terminal and type the following commands.
# cd Desktop
# tar -zxvf ChromeOS-Cherry.tar.gz
Replace X with the name of the disk you found earlier, ie disk1.
# sudo dd if=ChromeOS-Cherry.img of=/dev/X bs=4m
This command will ask you to enter your password (the same one you enter when installing software for example), type it in and press enter.

Never miss your train (If you are living in Switzerland)
This site is still in ALPHA-phase, The current view is based on the Swiss train timetable, and does
not yet show the actual GPS-positions of the trains. But, as Swiss trains are almost always on time,
most of the time the position is accurate. But they are adding the real time position of the trains,
based on the delay-information on http://prosurf.sbb.ch.
One of the coolest functions is one that is a bit hidden: click on a moving train, and click in the
unfolding menu on the button "Follow". This will show you from a bird's eye view via satellite images,
the moving train.

The Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination; The Mansell Collection from London; Dahlstrom glass plates of New York and environs from the 1880s; and the entire works left to the collection from LIFE photographers Alfred Eisenstaedt, Gjon Mili, and Nina Leen. These are just some of the things you'll see in Google Image Search today.
We're excited to announce the availability of never-before-seen images from the LIFE photo archive. This effort to bring offline images online was inspired by our mission to organize all the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. This collection of newly-digitized images includes photos and etchings produced and owned by LIFE dating all the way back to the 1750s.
Only a very small percentage of these images have ever been published. The rest have been sitting in dusty archives in the form of negatives, slides, glass plates, etchings, and prints. We're digitizing them so that everyone can easily experience these fascinating moments in time. Today about 20 percent of the collection is online; during the next few months, we will be adding the entire LIFE archive — about 10 million photos.
