Eric Schmidt : "le principal concurrent de Google, c'est Bing, pas Apple ou Facebook" Abondance > Actualités > Eric Schmidt : "le principal concurrent de Google, c'est Bing, pas Apple ou Facebook" Dans un entretien au Wall Street Journal, Eric Schmidt, le CEO de Google a estimé qu'actuellement, il ne voyait pas Apple ou Facebook comme des concurrents directs, et ce même dans le domaine du mobile pour Apple. Selon lui, la principale menace pour sa société, c'est Bing, le moteur de recherche de Microsoft. "C'est un moteur de recherche bien géré et très compétitif" a-t-il déclaré à cette occasion. Quant à Apple, le CEO de Google estime que cette société représente "l'expression ultime d'un système clos" alors que Google prône les systèmes ouverts, et qu'ils sont donc aux antipodes l'un de l'autre. En ce qui concerne Facebook, Schmidt estime qu'il est trop tôt pour juger si le réseau social peut réellement concurrencer Google sur son terrain, la recherche.

Liens sponsorisés : l’affaire Louis Vuitton vs Google relancée La Cour de cassation vient de rendre son arrêt dans l’affaire Louis Vuitton vs Google, une affaire touchant au système des liens sponsorisés AdWords. La haute juridiction avait à statuer sur la compétence des juridictions françaises compte tenu du caractère international des faits en cause. Selon les premiers éléments(*), « la Cour de cassation renvoie l’affaire devant la Cour d’appel de Paris pour rechercher si les éléments propres à établir la compétence des tribunaux français sont réunis » indique LVMH dans un communiqué. Le groupe précise que « sur le fond, elle considère que la responsabilité de Google peut être engagée sur le fondement de la responsabilité civile. De ce fait, elle charge la Cour d’appel de rechercher, au vu des faits de l’espèce, les fautes que Google peut avoir commises au préjudice de Louis Vuitton ».

Google to give outgoing CEO Schmidt $100 million Can Google ever be a neutral news provider? | Media Writing on the wall ... Google's SayNow shows it is becoming more involved in politics. Photograph: Emilio Morenatti/AP It is hard to think of many American business executives who have been detained for dissent against repressive regimes. It is more usual for them to be actively engaged in reinforcing dodgy dictatorships than tearing them down. It is unclear what the view of Ghonim's activities are from the Googleplex. Ghonim's 12-day detention in Egypt and his subsequent release have not been obviously marked or celebrated on the Google site, nor has its logo been decorated in his honour, as it is for events such as St Patrick's Day. Ghonim's detention was the second time Google had hit the headlines in relation to Egypt. According to the journalist Ken Auletta, author of Googled, one of the reasons for the recent top management shakeup at the company was differences in how to approach China. Page's approach was based on vision, Eric Schmidt's was based on corporate pragmatism.

Google Announces New Payment System for Digital Publishers Following the debut of Apple's new subscription model — and publishers' subsequent displeasure with the company's insistence on a 30% revenue cut — Google announced today a new service that allows publishers to have greater control over the prices and terms of their digital content products. The service, Google One Pass, is an embeddable e-commerce system that allows publishers to sell access to their digital content more or less on their own terms. Publishers can sell subscriptions (including discounted or free access to existing print subscribers), metered or freemium access, or individual articles separately or as a bundle on their websites and mobile apps. Although the service should generate some Google love among publishers, it will do little to help them offer comprehensive, multi-platform digital packages in a mobile app market that is largely dominated by Apple. One Pass is available to publishers in the U.S., UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.

Gmail sans mails : une mauvaise publicit? pour le cloud C'est la révolution informatique que les industriels tentent d'imposer aux consommateurs depuis plusieurs années, et contre laquelle s'opposent des initiatives en gestation comme la FreedomBox. Avec le cloud, ou "informatique en nuage", les entreprises comme Google, Microsoft, Apple ou Yahoo veulent rendre les utilisateurs dépendants des services en ligne, pour transformer leurs ordinateurs en terminaux d'accès - sous un motif écologique très à la mode, et très contestable. Les données ne sont plus stockées localement mais à distance, ce qui a le double avantage pour l'entreprise d'enfermer l'utilisateur dans le service en ligne qu'il a choisi (particulièrement lorsqu'il est impossible ou difficile d'en changer sans perdre ses fichiers), et de lui faire payer un loyer pour l'hébergement de ses données. Google fait figure de leader dans ce domaine, avec ses très nombreux services en ligne comme YouTube, Google Docs, Google Maps, ou encore Gmail. Ce fut le cas dimanche de Gmail.

Google’s New In-App Payments Product Set For Launch In May 2011 Google was originally set to debut in-app payments support for Android in the fourth quarter of 2010, and recently said that the launch would be delayed until the end of this quarter. Be that as it may, the company is set to launch another much-anticipated (at least by many app developers or publishers) Web-based in-app transactions product in May 2011. (see updates below) Jambool, the company behind a virtual monetization platform dubbed ‘Social Gold’ that was acquired by Google last August, this morning started sending the following email to users: Hello,Thank you for your use of the Jambool Social Gold platform. Three big take-aways: - Jambool’s Social Gold service will be shut down, even though it offers more features than Google’s new in-app payments product will have upon its formal debut (which already ruined one game developer’s day, apparently). - Google’s in-app payment product, currently in beta, will be launched in May 2011. Update: Google I/O will be held on May 10 and 11.

How to Back Up Gmail Did you hear the news? Gmail crashed in a fiery inferno of power cords and Ethernet cables over the weekend (we can assume, based on reports). The damage was monstrous—with a whopping 0.02% of all Gmail users affected. Maybe monstrous isn’t the right term, but why would the media make it into such a big story if it wasn’t monstrous? Because “the cloud” is scary! Whether the loss of e-mail messages affected 0.02% of Gmail users or 0.17% of Gmail users, now is probably a good time to learn how to back up your Gmail messages—just in case the cloud starts to look a little stormy. Easy and Free, Windows Only Gmail Backup. Easy and Sometimes Free, Windows and Mac Backupify. Backupify lets you back up data from Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and several other online services. Harder but Free, Windows and Mac Desktop e-mail software.

Hide sites to find more of what you want Over the years we’ve experimented with a number of ways to help you personalize the results you find on Google, from SearchWiki to stars in search to location settings. Now there’s yet another way to find more of what you want on Google by blocking the sites you don’t want to see. You’ve probably had the experience where you’ve clicked a result and it wasn’t quite what you were looking for. Many times you’ll head right back to Google. Perhaps the result just wasn’t quite right, but sometimes you may dislike the site in general, whether it’s offensive, pornographic or of generally low quality. For times like these, you’ll start seeing a new option to block particular domains from your future search results. As always, Matt’s been gracious enough to let us use him as an example. Once you click the link to “Block all example.com results” you’ll get a confirmation message, as well as the option to undo your choice.

Google reportedly to unveil new social network called Circles, likely to launch in May Despite reports to the contrary, Google will not launch a new social networking platform called Google Circles at SXSW today, further suggesting that the search giant will launch what we have previously referred to as Google Me in May. A report by ReadWriteWeb suggested that Google Circles will offer photo, video and message sharing, with the service sharing content with only the “most appropriate of social contacts in their lives, not with all contacts in bulk”. It was thought that it could be unveiled at an event this evening, not necessarily signalling a major public launch but indicating that the product was due to be released. O’Reilly Media founder Tim O’Reilly seemed to confirm the existence of Google’s new social platform, posting a tweet that stated: “I’ve seen google circles, and it looks awesome. The evidence seemed to be mounting – implying a SXSW launch was imminent – until it was put to a end by AllThingsD, which contacted Google for clarification on the matter.

Social Is Too Important For Google To Screw Up With A Big Launch Circus Google will launch a “major new social network” imminently at the SXSW conference, said Read/Write Web early this morning. They were stupendously wrong on timing – Google told us and others that there was absolutely nothing launching in the next few days at the event. The product details they got were fairly correct, though, from what I’ve heard from sources who’ve seen Google’s product iterations over the last few months. But that’s beside the point. I’m guessing we’ll see more small releases over time, and won’t get hit with any big announcements just yet. Why? But, really, there’s nothing Google could launch that would get people to ooh and ahh. Apple certainly couldn’t pull off a successful social network with one big press push, either. There’s really nothing that could be launched that people would say “Wow, Facebook’s in trouble” by Google or anyone else. So all the stuff that Google is putting together won’t be hurting Facebook all that much, at least for several years.

Les requêtes des français sur Google en période de crise. Reflexion autour de Google #culture Le 9 mars avait lieu à la Bibliothèque publique d’information du Centre Pompidou, dans le cadre du cycle « Eclairage pour le 21e siècle », un débat sur Google, organisé en partenariat avec Place de la Toile, Chronique de la rentrée littéraire et InternetActu.net. Animé par Abeline Majorel, le débat réunissait Ariel Kyrou, l’auteur de Google God, cette déclaration d’amour et de haine, de fascination et de rejet sur ce monstre du quotidien, également rédacteur en chef du site Culture Mobile et membre du collectif de rédaction de la revue Multitudes ;Daniel Ichbiah rédacteur en chef du magazine Comment ça marche, écrivain, auteur notamment de Comment Google mangera le monde ? Comment et en quoi Google est-il pertinent ? La principale qualité de Google repose sur celle de son moteur. Pour Matthieu Lecomte, Google cherche sans cesse à améliorer l’expérience utilisateur, alors que les éditeurs cherchent à contourner les règles mises en place par le moteur. Le risque du profilage
