Doodle 4 Google

I just ran across this on Google.com.

“Doodle 4 Google is a competition where we invite K-12 students to reinvent Google’s homepage logo. This year we asked U.S. kids to doodle around the theme “What if…?”

Well, the entries are in, and we couldn’t be more impressed. We received thousands of wonderful doodles, and choosing 40 finalists for the public vote had to be one of the most difficult but enjoyable jobs at Google in the past few weeks.

So the kids have done their part, and we’ve done ours. Now it’s your turn to help out by picking your favorite doodles. Your votes will help us select a national winner to replace our usual logo on the Google homepage on May 22, 2008.”

Be sure and go and vote. I thought some of these kids graphics/drawing were REALLY REALLY good.

I SAY NO, NO, NO to Google Custom Time… I think this is 100% inappropriate…

I can not even believe that Google would come up with this… Are they going to allow their employees to use the feature??? Would be interesting to know…

I SAY NO, NO, NO to Google Custom Time…

Nokia wants back in…

Well it looks like Nokia wants to get it’s gain back in the cellphone business.

 

ESPOO, Finland — When Google announced plans in October to revolutionize the software of cellular phones, few were more eager to hear the details than the industry veterans at Nokia. They still are.

“We’ve seen an announcement,” Nokia’s chief executive, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, said with more than a hint of sarcasm. “Conceptually, we could have made that announcement a long time ago.”

My first cellphone was a Nokia. It was great. It had all I could want in a cellphone at age 15. It made calls, had a calculator, and even some games. Now I am a little more advanced with my Palm 755p Cellphone.

Sounds like Nokia has an opportunity to gain back some share of the market. I look forward to seeing what happens.

Google and the 700 MHz Spectrum

Google is going for it and they will probably win… They want a part of the 700 MHz spectrum and they have a cost in mind…

Here’s the article I picked up today:

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 30 (AP) — Google will apply to bid for wireless spectrum in an upcoming government auction, the company said today.

The Federal Communications Commission is auctioning the 700-megahertz spectrum to increase bandwidth for mobile phone and Internet services.

Google covets the “C Block” of the spectrum — which carries a reserve price of $4.6 billion — because regulators stipulated that whoever operates it must allow their users to download any software application they want to a mobile device.

This appears that Google is really getting into their new ANDROID project and this appears to be a part of that… The auction is on Jan. 24, 2008 and it’s going to be a fun auction to hear about… I’ll keep you updated….
