The Rome underground is expanding with 3 new metro lines: C, D and B1. Construction has already started on some of these lines but not all, and most of the stations are scheduled to open between 2008 and 2012. I was indeed very surprised to find them already in place for this search on Google Maps.
According to this chart by Slazy (see the post), Google owns a bunch of Google-domains with more and less o’s than 2. Hmmm, why would Google want to register Google with 19 o’s but not with 20? And a tip for the lazy: enter “gogle.com” instead of “google.com” and save worthwhile typing energy...
People’s Daily Online has a couple of pictures from Google’s new office building in China. “Google’s China Office moved into its permanent office building in Tsinghua Science Park, Beijing, on September 4 after temporarily operation out of Xinhua Insurance Mansion and Tsinghua Science Mansion,” the site says. Google’s Andrew McLaughlin once said, “In the years to come, we’ll be making significant and growing investments in China.”

*Googler Matt Cutts along with some others being a notable exception.
