INILAH.COM, Singapore – Google is rumored to prepare the way of approaching celebrities so they use a similar feature Verified Account.
Like Twitter, which became a means of celebrities posting all this activity, presumably Google + also want to have the same function. As reported by ZDNet, Google + is currently preparing a strategy to approach celebrities to add features like “Verified Account” in Twitter.
Verified Account is a special feature to mark the official account popular people, so no one will make a fake account. On Google + there will be such a system, which can identify the profile celebrities.
Google will also work with celebrities to ensure the promotion and protection of their accounts.
Working with celebrities is probably one of Google’s strategy to make Google prestige + hold steady above the clouds. [mor]
INILAH.COM, Jakarta – Google Search can detect malware from existing data on your Windows computer.
Google can now detect virus from the existing data in a computer. As written in the article title GoogleBlog Using data to protect people from malware,
Google recently said they found the search traffic that is not unusual during routine monitoring at the Google data centers.
After working with a number of Internet security experts, Google found that computers that behave that way was infected with malicious software or malware. Matt Cutts of Google says this happens only on Windows computers.
So Google made the detection system, and if the computer detected bervirus, when opening Google Search, above the search box will pop up a yellow warning bar, saying Your Computer Appears to be infected.
Malware infected computer it makes sending traffic to Google through a proxy. Google hopes this notification can help remind people to update the antivirus.
If Google wanted Android to be a platform that OEM’s can build their own unique eco-systems around Amazon’s about to take them up on that opportunity with their Android tablet.
Reports from earlier in the week indicated that Amazon was on the verge of launching very first Android tablet really soon (before October). With their new tablet Amazon is expected to incorporate all of their digital services heavily into the tablet. That means that Amazon will provide access to their Android app store, their digital video rental service, their music service, and their digital book and magazine service. Google offers or is soon going to offer their own services that match all of those things that Amazon has going for themselves, but I believe the Amazon tablet will be an all Amazon all the time affair.
Amazon is the top online retailer thanks to their ever popular Amazon.com website. Now through that website Amazon has been able to build a strong customer base and launch a lot of services that cater very nicely to their registered customers as well as passersby.
With their online retail expertise and Google’s willingness to let OEM’s like Amazon have pretty much full control over Android the upcoming Amazon tablet is almost guaranteed to have Amazon’s fingerprints all over the software. This is going to be their trump card against other market contenders with their own eco-systems.
Google launched their own social network as a limited beta a week ago and named it Google + and personally, I love it.
One thing Google downplayed with the social network was friend numbers and followers, something really important on Twitter and less important on Facebook.
Google engineer, DeWitt Clinton, talked a bit about how he has seen the growth of Google + and how he is surprised by how fast things have evolved on the network, even within the limited test.
Here is a copy of what he wrote on his Google + Post:
I’m not a big fan of numbers games—they’re a signal, but at best a fungible one, and always highly dependent on external factors—but perhaps worth noting in passing (and then moving on) that by sometime later today I’ll have added more people to circles, and have been added to more circles, on Google+ than I have friends or followers on Buzz, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or any other network, and we’re not yet a full week into limited field trial. I had expected this to happen eventually, but certainly not so soon.
