    Many of us already know how much "in the tank" Google is with Obama. Google's CEO first met Obama way back in 2000 and has since had several meetings. It is also true that Google was caught censoring what they deemed negative content against Obama during the election. It will also likely be true that Google will eventually censor information for the Obama administration - this is a no-brainer as they have already done so and are tightly coupled. I am now introducing a new search engine that I personally feel is very good. Some of you may have heard...

    The Register ^ | 012/14/2008 | andrew orlowski
    Google this week admitted that its staff will pick and choose what appears in its search results. It's a historic statement - and nobody has yet grasped its significance. Not so very long ago, Google disclaimed responsibility for its search results by explaining that these were chosen by a computer algorithm. The disclaimer lives on at Google News, where we are assured that: The selection and placement of stories on this page were determined automatically by a computer program. A few years ago, Google's apparently unimpeachable objectivity got some people very excited, and technology utopians began to herald Google as...

    In 2006, Thailand announced it was blocking access to YouTube for anyone with a Thai I.P address, and then identified 20 offensive videos for Google to remove as a condition of unblocking the site. ‘If your whole game is to increase market share,’ says Lawrence Lessig, speaking of Google, ‘it’s hard to . . . gather data in ways that don’t raise privacy concerns or in ways that might help repressive governments to block controversial content.’ In March of last year, Nicole Wong, the deputy general counsel of Google, was notified that there had been a precipitous drop in activity...

    Obama is not president yet and the technofascist brown shirts are hard at work at Google, making sure that nothing stands in Obama's way. Google is blacklisting Pamela Geller's "anti-Obama" blog over at Atlas Shrugs. Ms. Gellar has incessantly covered the story regarding Obama's fake birth certificate. The story has recently gotten more traction and attention lately, yet the mainstream media has managed to make this story appear "silly" by not covering it:

    The MSM’s nauseating, pro-Obama bias during the campaign was almost too much to bear.

The fallback position for Conservatives has always been, “well, we always have the right-wing blogs.” Now it appears that Google is trying to finish off the right-wing blogosphere once and for all.

    Google effectively lost its first formal debate over whether "Google violates its own 'Don't Be Evil' motto" at the Rosenkranz Foundation's Oxford-style debate in New York City, November 18. (Transcript here) Before the debate the audience was polled and voted 21% against Google and 48% for Google; after gathering additional insight from the debate, 47% voted against Google and 47% voted for Google. Apparently, most all of the undecideds voted against Google -- that Google violated their own 'don't be evil' motto. What does this mean? First, it's a big red flag when there is a formal, high-profile and public...

    How does Atlas grow? Google search is one critically important way. People find Atlas when they do a word search in google ie "Obama birth certificate", "Obama odinga", "honor killings", "Obama campaign finance fraud" - stories that I broke or did groundbreaking work on and Atlas is usually in the top five of the search results. That's how folks find my work and generally I keep 15-20% of them as return readers. Regular Atlas readers know the media refuses to cover these stories - building readership is the only way to boost awareness in this increasingly dangerous world. A couple...

    Network neutrality means less technological innovation — and less freedom, too. By Phil Kerpen Following the nationalization of investment banks, Fannie and Freddie, consumer banks, and private insurance companies, taxpayers are likely asking: What’s left for the federal government to nationalize? How about the Internet? Network neutrality, or net neutrality, is the beneficent-sounding name for sweeping new government regulatory power that would prohibit Internet service providers from innovating in their own networks. This could lead to much less broadband investment by private companies, and could potentially force government subsidization, control, and outright nationalization of the Internet. The implications of this...

    The other big battle on Nov. 4 is over wireless airwaves, and it pits tech stalwarts against TV stations, evangelical preachers—even Dolly Parton ### Besides the Presidential election, there's another big political battle brewing in Washington on Nov. 4. This one is over the airwaves that are used to deliver communications signals to consumers across the country, and like the race for the White House, this contest has created a big divide. The same day that the country is picking its next President, the Federal Communication Commission will decide whether to make available a large swath of airwaves for wireless...

    When Dolly Parton speaks people listen. At least that's what opponents to an upcoming Federal Communications Commission vote on opening up "white space" spectrum hope. Earlier this week, country western star Dolly Parton sent a letter to the FCC asking the agency to delay its vote to open up the unused spectrum for unlicensed use. "As someone who uses the white spaces and knows the value of them for the work that I and many of my friends around the country, I ask the FCC to recognize the entertainment industry's valuable contribution to the cultural life," Parton wrote in her...

    A battle between tech companies like Google Inc and broadcasters over use of soon-to-be vacant airwaves will heat up soon as U.S. regulators release an anticipated report on the issue. The Federal Communications Commission's report will weigh in as early as Friday on the feasibility of opening up "white spaces" -- unused pockets of the spectrum to become available when broadcasters move completely to digital television next year -- for unlicensed use. Google, Microsoft Corp and others want the spaces for a new generation of wireless devices. So-called incumbents on the space, including broadcasters and wireless phone companies, oppose unlicensed...

    At first it didn't really bother me, but it became increasingly hard to ignore. On certain relatively slow news days, the bulk of the e-mails I would receive from readers of the National Review's Web site would be about Google, the popular Internet search engine. Specifically, these letters would complain about Google's failure to recognize certain holidays. Google — if you don't live on the Internet as I do, and thus haven't noticed — tends to change its logo to celebrate special occasions. Google was very into the Olympics in Beijing (and has bent to China's will there, but that's...

    On Monday, shares of United Airlines lost more than 75 per cent of their value -- erasing about $1.2-billion from the company's market capitalization -- after a story about the airline's bankruptcy in 2002 somehow got pushed onto the website of a Florida newspaper, was picked up by Google's news-aggregation service, then made its way onto the Bloomberg news wire and out to hundreds of thousands of stockbrokers and traders. But whose fault was it? By Tuesday morning, fingers were being pointed in multiple directions.

    Google Wants U.S. to Use 100 Percent Alternative Energy by 2030 Jason Mick (Blog) - September 9, 2008 11:34 AM Google has already made it clear that it wants to promote alternative energy in a big way as part of its "Don't be evil" philosophy. Its initial round of funding included grants to solar and a high-altitude wind power startup. In its second round, Google granted $10M USD more to a couple of geothermal startups, looking to harness Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) -- which involve injecting water deep into the ground to make steam. Now Google has outlined a comprehensive...
