Google Buys Mobile Startup

Google acquired Android Inc. Who’s that, you may ask? BusinessWeek sheds a little light on this (but only a little):

Android has operated under a cloak of secrecy, so little is known about its work. Rubin & Co. have sparingly described the outfit as making software for mobile phones, providing little more detail than that. One source familiar with the company says Android had at one point been working on a software operating system for cell phones.”

AdSense Blog

Google has launched the AdSense blog (Google AdSense are the context-related advertisements for webmasters to use on their site to earn some money). [Via SEW.]


In more GamesfortheBrain news, the game TwinCol has been added to the site today.

Games for the Brain in Other Languages

I’m happy to announce my puzzle web site Games for the Brain is now also available in German and Chinese. If you know Chinese or German sites that post fun links, it’d be great if you can spread the word (let me know if you do, maybe I can pay back the favor)!

Google Movie Domains

Google registered the domains and, Gary Price reports. (Is a new service coming, and is this related to Google’s “movie” operator?)
