Google is preparing to overhaul its search engine—

Google is about to start using semantic search techniques to produce search results. The “new Google search engine” will add Wolfram Alpha like results, suggesting that soon it might return just one answer to certain queries, rather than a list of links.

    I've always loved how Google replies immediately when you do something like translate in the search bar. It's nice to see that they are finally taking that to a new level.

How Much is Google Paying Apple To Be The Search Engine On iPhone, iPad, And Elsewhere?
$1 billion.

Schachter believes Google searches on Apple devices resulted in $1.3 billion in gross revenue. He believes Google has a 75% traffic acquisition cost associated with that revenue. As a result, Google only gets $335 million in net revenue from searches on iOS and Safari.

Google’s creepy invasion of privacy:

The search engine giant owes the public an apology for secretly tracking the browsing habits of Apple customers.

The search engine giant and some advertising agencies used a secret code to track the Web habits of users of Apple’s Safari browser on iPhones and computers by bypassing its privacy settings, the newspaper reported. Safari, the most popular program for mobile surfing, is designed to block such tracking by default.

Google stopped the tracking when questioned about the practice by the Wall Street Journal.

Torrent search engine BTJunkie voluntarily shuts down

Torrent search engine BTjunkie is the latest file-sharing service to fall on its sword in the wake of the Megaupload sting. Junkie, one of the largest BitTorrent indexes, decided to shut down voluntarily.

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2012/02/torrent-search-engine-btjunkie-voluntarily-shuts-down.ars

A statement on the website reads, “This is the end of the line my friends. The decision does not come easy, but we’ve decided to voluntarily shut down. We’ve been fighting for years for your right to communicate, but it’s time to move on. It’s been an experience of a lifetime, we wish you all the best!”

The site was never directly targeted by copyright holders, an unnamed BTJunkie founder told TorrentFreak. However, the site was reported to the US Trade Representative (USTR) in 2011, the RIAA and MPAA listed the torrent index as a ‘rogue’ site, and Google censored the search term.

Anti-Google Graffiti In NYC

Google’s logo has been showing up around New York City with one very shaming alteration: the two Os in “Google” have been replaced by surveillance cameras.

The Decision Engine is Dead: Now Bing is For Doing

Microsoft’s search engine is ditching the “decision engine” label and rebranding with a new message: Bing is for doing. And Bing is no doubt hoping that the rebranding will stop people from Googling.

Wikipedia blackout sparks debate - video:

Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia and other popular websites went dark on Wednesday (January 18) as search engine Google blotted its logo as part of protests to stop Internet piracy legislation being considered by the US Congress. The worldwide blackout came with a warning from Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales who said, “Students, do your homework early!”

    Will Twitter ever allow their API to be used by Google again? After this move by Google, I think those days are definately long gone.

Rick Santorum, a leading contender to represent the Republican party in this year’s presidential election, has major search engine problems.

Due to his anti gay positions, protesters have spoofed his last name, applying a definition to it that wouldn’t be printable in a family newspaper. This vulgar definition of Santorum is the number one search result, when you query Santorum, on every major search engine.

Google travel is biggest threat to Kayak, Orbitz, Expedia…

Online travel agencies like Kayak have good reason to fear Google’s intensified push into their market. The Wall Street Journal today reported on the steps Google has taken to get a bigger piece of the $110 billion online travel market, namely by putting its own travel search results at the top of search results pages — above those of sites like Expedia and Kayak…
