Google this week made a brazen move when it rolled out a new search feature called “Search Plus Your World,” which brings up results based not only on what’s out there on the Web but also on what you and your friends are doing on the Google+ social network.

Critics say, however, that Google is simply pursuing the same strategy that once got Microsoft into hot water —using a dominant position in one market to gain ground in another.

I recently did a round table discussion on the American Dream. Here’s a part of the conversation I offered: The American Dream is freedom to be left alone, to succeed or fail on your own. It’s the promise that with effort, or luck, or both, you can find an unmolested happiness. And when I say unmolested, I mean in the sense you aren’t bogged down with limitless barbed wires of mindless regulation and compulsion to participate in programs a government deems beneficial for everyone. That you can make a living on your own terms, responsible for yourself.
I used to stay up late watching the film of my bicycle being stolen . It’s amazing what you notice on the 38th replay of a surveillance tape, running the grainy recording backward and forward, pausing and advancing. Sometimes I’d back the tape up to before the 17 minutes that changed my life. All the way back to the part where I still had a bicycle.

The public outcry over the Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act seems to have gotten so loud that even members of Congress can hear it. On Thursday we covered the news that Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) was expressing second thoughts about SOPA's DNS provisions. He said he changed his mind after he "heard from a number of Vermonters" on the issue. On Friday, several Republicans started backpedaling as well. SOPA sponsor Lamar Smith (R-TX) announced that he would be pulling the DNS-blocking provisions from his own bill.

When a meteor, asteroid or comet thumps into our fragile planet, there’s going to be a imprint left behind. An impact crater is generally a geological feature that has been caused by a heavy impact on the earth. Usually what is left behind after such events consists of a circular crater on the ground which is generally lower than the surrounding terrain as it has been forced downwards severely. Often, these impact craters are stark reminders that the solar system can be a dangerous and hard-hitting minefield that every now and again can damage the earth.
Occurring on Tuesday night during a performance of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony by the New York Philharmonic , a man’s iPhone erupted in the familiar marimba ring tone during the closing moments of the performance. Seated in the first row of Lincoln Center ’s Avery Fisher Hall in New York City, the man with the ringing iPhone watched as conductor Alan Gilbert halted the orchestra, turned toward the direction of the ringing and asked audience members in the general vicinity to turn off the smartphone. While the ring tone continued to repeat over and over, audience members yelled out phrases like “Throw him out!”, “Enough!”
