Torn Pantomime Video

This Google video of a song interpretation is kinda funny. (Try using the Google Web Accelerator if this doesn’t work for you.)

Google Earth War

You can play war on Google Earth with GEWar. The FAQ outlines the basic idea behind the game:

“You build armies to go around the world and capture cities. The cities all have a “value”, which is based on their population. The total value of all of the cities in your control is called your “total value”. The person with the highest “total value” is the one that is currently winning the game (and on top of the top players list). You can attack (and capture) cities using your armies. Armies (and other items) can be purchased using “Geos” that you can earn.”

It’s Risk without the copyright infringement, as a Digg commenter writes.

Ido Kenan points out that Google’s Gmail is now asking for feedback on (at least some) sponsored links.

Google Selling PCs Soon? Doesn’t Seem So

The L.A. Times recently reported “Sources say Google has been in negotiations with Wal-Mart Stores Inc., among other retailers, to sell a Google PC.” I asked Google for a statement, and they said, “We have many PC partners who serve their markets exceedingly well and we see no need to enter that market; we would rather partner with great companies.”

Google Store Trucker Cap

Brinke Guthrie wonders if there really is a need for this one.
