Google Wins Biopiracy Award

I’m not sure if Google is gonna like this, but they received the Captain Hook Award for Biopiracy... for “teaming up with J. Craig Venter to create a searchable online database of all the genes on the planet so that individuals and pharmaceutical companies alike can ’google’ our genes – one day bringing the tools of biopiracy online.” [Thanks Manoj Nahar.]

Official Web 2.0 Certifyr (Beta)

Google Blogoscoped is only 31% Web 2.0 Compliant... how well do you fare? [Thanks Miel.]

MSN Search Spoof Returns

MSN Search Spoof isn’t new, but it might come in handy for April Fool’s: you can generate customized fake search results to surprise your friends and colleagues. Like this one for Sergey Brin. [Thanks Miel.]

Google TV?

Reto Meier wonders if Google TV is on its way:

“Google are advertising for an Interactive TV Product Manager in Mountain View, as well as Sofware Engineers with experience in ’emerging TV standards’ and ’deploying robust, high-volume applications for consumer devices’ in both the Mountain View and London offices. (...)

All signs indicate that any plans are at an early stage, but it seems that Google, much like major players Apple, Sony, and Microsoft are looking to move off the computer, and into your living room.”
