While America’s busy celebrating Labor Day (mmm, ribs), Europe will be hard at work farming a Google competitor.

Google, BMW Enhance European Nav Systems

Europeans (and to some extent, the Japanese) get all the coolest car stuff.  The latest example of this involves a deal between BMW and Google; German BMW owners will benefit from a new in-car Google Local Search service, and a sort of precursor feature (previously available just in Germany) has now spread throughout Europe.

Property Search Site Gets Bigger, Better

In the market for an Irish castle?  Or perhaps a Spanish villa?  Properazzi wants to help, and as the site has just declared itself the world’s largest property search engine, it’s likely in a good position to do so.

Never mind that, at their closest tips, Canada and Europe are over 1,500 miles apart; in Yahoo’s mind, they’re pretty much one and the same.

Google LatLong Looks at New York, Europe

It’s Friday, and odds are that you wish it was Saturday.  Or that you weren’t at work – it usually amounts to the same thing.  And although the powers of time travel and transportation are beyond me, there are some Google-approved maps that focus on faraway places.

Baidu’s Net Profit Up 140%

Europe’s Challenge to Google’s Dominance

It seems the European Union is all too quick to question Google’s dominance and probe its acquisitions, but is there a huge conflict of interest to consider?

European Online Advertising May Double By 2012

We all knew that online ad spending would rise, but according to a new report from Forrester Research, European budgets for this sort of advertising will double over the next five years.

Google To Engage More Lawyers In Europe

I’ve often wondered about the members of Google’s legal team.  How many are there?  What sort of people are they?  And do they work 168 hours per week to keep up with the avalanche of lawsuits?   I still don’t know the answers to all those questions, but in regards to the first one, a new report indicates that many more specialists will soon join up.

Google Seen As Perfect Employer In Europe

Well, it’s (more or less) official: should Google ever decide to take over the world, most of us will be willing to aid it.  The results of a new study confirm that, in certain European circles, the search engine giant is regarded as an ideal employer.

YouTube Phone To Arrive In Europe

A Google phone will soon arrive.  Unfortunately for many WebProNews readers, it will not (yet) arrive in America.  And unfortunately for everybody, it doesn’t incorporate any breakthrough features or technology.

French Channel May Join YouTube Europe

I think pretty much everyone is aware of Britain’s BBC, but France Televisions, a public national television broadcaster, may not be as well-known in America.  Now France Televisions is in talks to join the European version of YouTube, though, so perhaps its profile will rise.

Baidu Backs Out Of Expansion Plans?

Rumor had it that Baidu would expand into Europe.  Now the Chinese search engine company has announced that it will not, and this reversal has caught more than a few people by surprise.

Lowered Expectations As Baidu Enters Europe

Just a few days ago, Baidu announced its intentions to expand into Europe.  Now its stock price is up, and its reputation is going down; things could be worse, but this isn’t exactly an ideal state of being for the Chinese search engine.
