New Girl’s Schmidt (Max Greenfield) will be guesting on The Mindy Project. That’s right, Greenfield will be playing a hot player who is totally up to no good. The episode is tentatively set for April 22nd on Fox. The highly anticipated episode will air directly after New Girl. Hooray for double doses of funny-man Greenfield! Greenfield has starred in Veronica …
If Eric Schmidt’s right, the business world is in for another love-hate relationship around the bend: so-called Web 3.0. I say "so-called" because it’s kinda silly. But Schmidt’s interpretation of this hypothetical means, inherently, even more control for the consumer, and less for the seller/marketer/developer.
It’s interesting to follow the Viacom lawsuit against Google. While Google’s faced many legal challenges before, it appears Viacom’s is the one that is troubling the search engine. It’s somewhat out of character to see Google CEO Eric Schmidt talk ugly about a company that is suing them – Google tends to comment via legal counsel – and it suggests the suit is a worry to him.
Google may or may not be on democracy’s side in countries such as Thailand and China – CEO Eric Schmidt apparently isn’t saying. Yet, while speaking in South Korea, Schmidt made clear that the Internet, as a whole, can help spread this particular system of government.
How’s this for a job: run the foreign arm of a gigantic corporation, and don’t worry about making any money for, oh, four or so years. That’s apparently what Google’s Kai-Fu Lee has been told to do in China. Yet Lee has other responsibilities, and CEO Eric Schmidt claims to be more than satisfied with the man’s performance.
The Google Acquisition of DoubleClick has Microsoft and AT&T screeching "Monopoly!" to the US Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust division. In a video interview with John Batelle at WebProNews last week, Google CEO Eric Schmidt responded to a comment from Batelle about "anti-competitive practices" by reacting in what seemed like mock surprise. "Microsoft! … AT&T?
At the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, Google CEO Eric Schmidt spoke with Federated Media’s John Battelle to discuss Google’s purchase of DoubleClick, Network Neutrality, and the company’s seemingly aggressive movement into Microsoft territory with the release of a new PowerPoint-like web application.
John Battelle interviewed Google CEO Eric Schmidt at the Web 2.0 Expo keynote Tuesday morning. Here are the highlights and my commentary:
As the debate continues about YouTube’s impact on Big Media, Google CEO Eric Schmidt made it quite clear where he falls on the issue: “The growth of YouTube, the growth of online, is so fundamental that these companies are going to be forced to work with and in the Internet.”
Any collection of technology-oriented folks would love to have a lavish lunch and listen to Google CEO Eric Schmidt talk about online issues; in the nation’s Capital, interest levels run a little lower.
If I were to offer you a nice lunch at a luxury hotel followed by a speech and a question and answer session with Eric Schmidt, you might be appreciative. Probably grateful.
While last week’s suggestion that Yahoo was switching browser preferences without explicit permission, was a black mark for the company, it doesn’t come close to the allegations that Google has revealed confidential information about its users.
Google CEO Eric Schmidt spoke recently at the Arab Strategy Forum, and he made some thought-provoking predictions about the region’s future. “The next story in the development of the Arab world,” Schmidt said, “will be the unleashing of the power of the Arab entrepreneur.”
The most recent round of elections had a lot of people thinking about the Internet’s role in politics. Most onlookers agree that it is becoming increasingly important; Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, believes that politicians must adapt. “The ones that take advantage of this most effectively will be the ones that will be the winners of the next election,” he said.
Google founder Eric Schmidt has given a donation to Virginia Tech’s School of Engineering in the sum of $2 million dollars. Schmidt grew up in Blacksburg and was the son of a Virginia Tech economics professor. He was also a neighbor to Paul Torgersen a former Dean of Tech’s College of Engineering and president from 1993 to 2000.
WEB 2.0: Google CEO: Take your data and run – Network World One of the things that all internet companies need to do a better job on is in ensuring that our users have portability of data. So it was refreshing to read this morning that Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, was talking up user portability today.
Some people would have you believe that it’s easier to get a job with the CIA than with Google. Google has a reputation for putting applicants – who must already meet very high standards – through at least six or so rigorous interviews. The company is in the process of changing its hiring procedures, though, and the changes may make things easier on those would-be Googlers.
The LA Times’ Chris Gaither reveals Google’s plans to pull-back from launching new products and instead focus on making the 35 it has, more usable.
Why buy a newspaper when you can find the same content online for free? As this line of reasoning has occurred to more and more people, there has been something of a hubbub over the way in which Internet news could draw revenue away from more traditional companies. Now it appears the potential rivals are coming to terms with each other.
Google is currently embroiled in a bitter battle with publishers over their Google Print entity. A lawsuit filed last week by the Author’s Guild and the Association of American Publishers (AAP) challenged Google over their Print plans. During a speech in Tokyo, Google CEO Eric Schmidt called the lawsuit a “routine part of doing business.”
