Google is showing a special winter games celebrations logo. Click on it, and you will be taken to a search for torino 2006... which features a “onebox” video result for the games in collaboration with NBC Olympics.
“San José City College (SJCC) has embarked on a technology improvement program, and for the first time will be offering student email accounts. That’s where we come in. We’re testing a new service with the school by hosting Gmail accounts with SJCC domain addresses (like firstname.lastname@example.org), plus admin tools for efficient account management.”

The Slut-o-Meter lets you enter your name to see how, well, slutty you are. In fact what happens behind the scene is that they search for your name in Google once with SafeSearch activated, and once without. A little bit of math later, they know the ratio of “unsafe” pages your name appears on, and thus calculate a “Promiscuity" value (mine was 2.89%...). [Thanks to Jean Véronis, who calls this science “pornometry."]
