Finding incorrect info in Google

Today I was searching the internet and found this link below about copy right infringement.

News to me, I do not take others copyright material and will never will. I found where 2 links about the company was from my website. Note: to self, a link is not copyright material.

2nd Note: Do not or will not use someone elses copyright material. Business have a tendency to tell un-truths when it comes to these things. I just wish they would contact me before they create this.

O well back to blogging and other online work.

Google search goes out

I was using Google search this morning, did not have any problems, except some of my website domains did not have enough links in the Google engine. But that is another story.

The internet world and Twtter was set a buzz this morning when Google Search start going slow or stopped completely.  This happened at a good time for me, because I had other things going on and was not using Google during the outage.

Google’s search site was extremely slow or inaccessible this morning and Google was having problems with Gmail, YouTube, Gmail, Blogger, Google Analytics, Google Maps, Google Docs, and AdSense.  Must be time for Google to build another server farm to keep their traffic under control.  It all happened this morning and was stable about 11:30 CT. Let’s just hope Google has it under control and this is not what is about to come.  Could it be a terrorist attack on Google servers, or Yahoo playing at it again.

What do you think????

Update for Google Chrome

It is time for Google step up an put some pressure on FireFox and IE8. This is done with the new version of a faster more manageable browser. Google has release a new version of their browser Chrome. I can tell this a major speed increase. Putting it to the other browsers, Google Chrome has been improving since forward since they came with Chrome a few months ago. Since the speed I am using Chrome more that I have been before. Developers are holding Chrome back, because they have not developed their sites to work with Google Chrome. I think when developers fix their sites, the internet world will start migrating more toward Chrome. May take a few more years. Cannot wait. Download Chrome update.

Update from Google Web Toolkit

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is making it so faster AJAX will improve you code speed that writing by handt. Java developers who have used GWT to create high-end web applications over the past year, will not seem very surprised. Technology industry remembers when enterprises and software vendors had to think pretty hard about whether to develop locally-installed desktop applications or web-based browser applications. These days, whether you’re building mashups, gadgets, or full-blown applications, it’s a no-brainer: the browser is the delivery platform of choice. However, users expect more from the up-and-coming generation of web applications than the simple click-and-wait of yesterweb. And if you’re a web developer, you know that this requires AJAX, the cluster of technologies including JavaScript and dynamic HTML that can make browsers do backflips.

Google Web Toolkit is an open source project that improves Java developers ability to harness the richness of AJAX in a cross-platform, web-friendly environment. The trick is that GWT cross-compiles Java source code into standalone JavaScript that you can include in any web page.  Developers using GWT spend time productively coding and debugging in the robust Java programming language, using their existing Java tools and expertise. Google is at it again making everyones life a little easier.  Gold Star

Google and Postini Enterprise Security

Google is concerned with business enterprise security that is why a year about a year ago.  Google realized a while back that they needed a more complete way to address information security and compliance issues in order to better support the Google Apps enterprise community. To replace the missing piece of the puzzle Google agreed to acquire Postini, a company that offers security and corporate compliance solutions for email, IM, and other web-based communications.

Google Apps was designed so that it would be easier for employees to communicate and share information while reducing the hassles and costs associated with enterprise software. Companies are responding: every day, more than 1,000 small businesses sign up for Google Apps.

Larger enterprises, however, face a challenge: though they want to deliver simple, useful hosted applications to their employees, they’re also required to support complex business rules, information security mandates, and an array of legal and corporate compliance issues. In effect, many businesses use legacy systems not because they are the best for their users, but because they are able to support complex business rules.
