What do they need all those domains for, when they generally launch services under logical subdomains of google.com anyway?

Dan they usually have both. So you can enter googlemaps.com which will redirect to local.google.com... I guess they both want to get the people who enter the easiest thing and also block the domain against abuse.

hmm.. I don't really understand why we need all those planet maps.. i mean it's cool.. but i'd rather see google releasing a calendar rather than zooming into a moldy tofu in a refrigerator.

They updated the JavaScript

And for domains.
check Google Analytics. This service runs under www.google-analytics.com

Which is a good thing. Otherwise, they could easily correlate your web usage (via Analytics) with your Google or Gmail account. Same domain -> both cookies get sent. "Google tracking individual users general web usage" would be a nightmare for them.

Current events prompt The Question...

...Would Google Mars censor images of alien artifacts if found by our orbiters if some body or being gave the order?

I think the aliens will just telephatically change the Googler's minds about it.
