No boycot on Google

Even though Google did something bad that's nothing compared to what Microsoft and Yahoo have done. Working with China- Fairly Bad, Doing Everything you can to help the Chinese Government -Really Bad. Yahoo and Microsoft give the identification of bloggers to the Chinese while Google creates a search page that blocks some words. It is either this or the Chinese Government uses another search engine. Ether Filtered Google or no Google. I think the people of China would rather have a limited funding search engine than no Google at all. Heck China blocked Google before and any search engine in China has to listen to the government. Lets support the search engine that does the least business in China, Google.

Google is Helping China

Hold the line Google. To everyone dismay Google is helping china to censor the internet. They won't allow any blogs or web mail on Google's google.cn site which is the new cornerstone in the Great Chinese Firewall. It is disappointing that you stand up to the DoJ, which is great, but fail to stand up against China. I'm hoping this isn't as bad as it sounds but only time will tell.

Bring it On (Google vs Department of Justice)

Google has refused to give up personal information about its users and what they search for to the United States government. Google is now being sued by the DoJ for not handing over this information.

Google should fight this with everything they've got. Microsoft and Yahoo sold out and gave their users information away. Because of this lawsuit Google's share price dropped $70 and they lost 20 billion dollars in their market cap! 20 billion dollars to protect the people that use Google. If Google's going to go down then it should make its stand here. In an era where information is power and your private information is being taken from you there is no one to stand up for you. Organizations like the ACLU try but there is just too many invasions of privacy. Secret government wire taps and now what ever you search for is analyzed. Microsoft doesn't care about its users. They give out information on bloggers to China and now information on all their users to the US Government. Yahoo does the same as Microsoft and what does Google do? Lose billions of dollars in value and even more in future business. Google isn't a company. It isn't a search engine. It is an idea of helping people and standing up for your rights. If Google were interested in making money do you think they would have not given the DoJ your records? Google stood up and said that this is too far. This is where we draw the line. I call upon all the people of the world to support Google. Stop using Yahoo and MSN search. Don't buy that next version of Microsoft Office. Use FireFox instead of Internet Explorer. Don't download that Yahoo toolbar. Don't buy that Xbox 360. Make your stand with Google and say you have rights. I'm not saying burn every computer with windows on it but show these companies that you have rights and you will stand up with Google for them. Battle lines are being drawn. Which side are you on?

Sincerely,

A Great Day For Google

Google is partnering with CBS to create pay-tv shows using the Google Video Store

Motorola is also partnering with Google to have Google search on the phones

Google's stock price hit 470

And a new announcement at Larry Page's keynote speech might still come. They probably will announce the CBS deal but it could be something more.

More on all of these later but January 6, 2006 will be a day that will be remembered in Google history.

Later today I'll have a story on each of these later today and over the weekend

Google Beats 450 and could go up even futher today

Yesterday Google's stock price went up to $451. Today in early morning trading it hit 454 and could go as high as 460 today.


In bigger news, today Google's Larry Page will probably announce a partnership between CBS and Google to deliver shows using Google Video. This will probably be similar to the itunes-NBC deal except Google shows will most likely be free. Or hopefully it could be something more.

Google Pridicted to Go to $600 By the End of 2006

Google has been predicted buy another firm to go to $575. This caused the stock to rise $20 to $435. With this continued rapid expansion and a probably a new Google product coming out on Friday who knows what could happen. I predict within the next 3 years Google will have a revolutionary technology so my 3 year prediction is $1000. It sounds high but if you look at Google's progress it might be even higher than that. Anyway in the near future look for some new changes in this blog as I continue to update it and get some more readers. Also if you are reading all the way through this I might be looking for a writer to help me so just post a comment to this telling me that you are interested with your email address.

Thanks and Happy New Year,

Google PC

Some sources reveal that Google is in talks with Wal-Mart to sell a Google PC. This low cost PC could revolutionise the industry and slowly drive Microsoft out of business. If there is such a product it would be announced on Friday when Larry Page, one of the co-founders of Google, discusses it during his keynote speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. If there is a Google PC than it would operate on Google's own operating system. Google has a long history of making low cost PCs since Google essentially runs off of a network of PCs that are built at Google. They have been doing this ever since it started in the late 90s when Sergey Brin and Larry Page hand assembled the first computers that powered Google at Stanford University.

Google To Buy 5% of AOL

Google is likely to buy 5% of AOL when it has its IPO later this year. This will help with the AOL-Google relationship since 10% of Google's business comes from AOL.

Also I'm reading David Vise's The Google Story and it is a great read for anyone who is interested in Google or the search business in general.
