Family reunions and quick getaways have become a Labor Day tradition for most people, but which apps work best for taking holiday trips? Grip’d.com spent several months testing various apps on each platform to see which ones make Gripd.com’s top five travel apps. If you have an iPhone, Blackberry or Android phone, here’s a quick rundown of the best 5 travel apps:
A French photographer named Yann Arthus-Bertrand is famous for many things, including an “Earth from the Air” exhibit. It seems perfectly natural, then, that about 500 of his photographs have been used to create a new “Earth from Above” layer in Google Earth.
Comscore released what it is calling the first comprehensive worldwide report on search engine market share, and Microsoft, third place in the U.S., falls to fourth on the world stage behind Chinese powerhouse search engine Baidu.com.
In fact, Google’s YouTube, if broken out from Google’s own data, would be the third most popular search engine and beat both Baidu and Microsoft, all by itself. That’s disheartening, as is this simple look at things:
Two months ago, Warner Music Group (WMG) filed suit against Imeem for copyright infringement. Now the suit has been dropped, and – get this – the two companies have announced a strategic partnership through which “WMG’s world-class catalog of popular audio and video content will be made available . . . for interactive, on-demand streaming on imeem’s free, ad-supported service.”
Search engine giant Google has released another enhancement to its AdWords advertising platform which will allow advertisers to get a better understanding of their campaigns’ performance. The new impression metrics are akin to traditional advertising’s "Share of Voice" measurements.
Hitwise reports that Google’s market share for May is 65.13%. While fielding nearly two thirds of all US searches is definitely not a bad thing, Google’s market share didn’t grow over April 2007. In fact, it actually declined 0.13 percentage points. While the amount is minuscule (representing 0.2% of their market share), for the first time in recent months, some of the other major search engines actually gained market share.
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.
I’ve decided to take the plunge and ask Google to marry me. If we ever divorce it will be very painful to extract myself from all the connnections and tie-ins and find replacement services and tools. I know, I know – most will say I’m doing it for the money. I can’t deny that the Adsense check every month is nice, but it’s not just the money that has me head over heals in love. It’s being connected on a deep soul satisfying level.
An article appearing in Yahoo Finance today outlines several missteps that the company has taken, all of which have led to the precarious position it finds itself in when compared to the enormous success and gargantuan search share that Google boasts.
Eric Jackson submitted a rather lengthy piece to Yahoo Finance today, and had no qualms about calling out Yahoo CEO Terry Semel, urging that he be replaced immediately due to several failures that many feel have damaged Yahoo in a significant way.
YouTube is Google’s new big stick, but the used-to-be-a-search company better learn to walk softly or lose the droves of devoted viewers. A new poll from Harris Interactive shows that while nearly a third of YouTube users are sacrificing TV time for online video, almost three-quarters of them won’t take kindly to pre-roll advertisements.
Out of the top 10 most-searched search engines ranked by Nielsen//NetRatings, only one had negative growth in December. Can you guess which one? Here’s a hint: it starts with M, ends in N, has an S in the middle, and is down in search market share almost another 10 percent.
The NYT takes a look at Google efforts to take market share away from eBay’s PayPal. The two are in a battle for the right to process credit card payments of companies looking for an alternative to merchant accounts.
Nielsen//Netratings released its monthly search rankings report, putting Google on top again, controlling nearly 50 percent of all US searches. But as those that follow the industry have come to expect, every month that number conflicts with two other metrics firms, both of which conflict with webmaster statistics.
