Google Predicted in 1964

Roger Browne found a publication from the year 1964 which makes a prediction that looks a whole lot like a computer hooked up to a modern-day search engine. [Thanks Roger!]

Google to Acquire GrandCentral?

TechCrunch reports that Google is in talks to acquire (or that they already acquired them). Mike Arrington describes the site as such:

The basic idea around GrandCentral is “one phone number for all your phones, for life.” As we change jobs, homes and cell phones, there are a lot of phone numbers to keep track of, and keeping everyone up to date with your most recent phone numbers is a real cost. If you use GrandCentral you can give out a single phone number. What happens when that person calls that number depends on his/her relationship to you, and what you are doing at the time.

I wonder why Google would want that company...

[Thanks Danny, Colin Colehour in the forum, JooIT and Manoj Nahar!]
