Google Friends Newsletter - May 2008

Spring greetings to our Google friends. We hope you enjoy this month's
update on our products and services.


See related topics when searching on Google News

When you search with Google News, you'll now see a list of related
searches at the bottom of the results page. For example, a search for
[global warming] will show more news results for topics such as carbon
dioxide, Al Gore, carbon emissions, greenhouse gas and the Kyoto


Walk for Good with Google and Cleveland Clinic

Be good to yourself and add the Cleveland Clinic walking program to
your iGoogle page. Use the Walk for Good gadget to track your progress
and stay motivated. If you complete at least half of the 15-week
program by October 25th, you can help choose a health charity to
receive a donation from Google.

Updates to Google Maps

Now, whenever you search for a location on Google Maps, you'll get a
better understanding of locales around the world, because you can see
Paranoramio photos, view YouTube videos, find user-created maps, and
peruse popular queries specific to that location. All of these options
appear when you click the "Explore this area" link in the left-hand
side panel. Also, this month, we introduced rooftop geo-coding for 50
million homes and businesses in the U.S., which significantly improves
mapping accuracy. You'll see that address searches in Google Maps will
now often return results with pinpoint accuracy.

Google Sites now open to everyone

We've made it easy for anyone to set up a website and share all types
of information — team projects, company intranets, community groups,
classrooms, clubs, family updates, you name it — in one place, for a
few people, a group or the world. You can securely host your own
website and add as many pages as you like — all for free.

View Google Docs presentations offline

The presentations aspect of Google Docs received a number of exciting
feature upgrades. You can embed YouTube videos, select multiple
objects, create speaker notes and view presentations offline using
Gears, among others.

Google Health now available for public use

Wouldn't it be great if you could get access to and manage all of your
personal health information online? This would help you keep your
doctors and family members up-to-date on important medical conditions
and current medications. Well, after a successful pilot with the
Cleveland Clinic, we've opened up Google Health to everyone in the
U.S. It's easy to sign up, and free to use. All you need is a Google
username and password. You can import your medical records and
prescription history from our partners — well-known brands such as
Walgreens, Longs Drugs and Quest Diagnostics.


There's no question that "user-generated content" — most often meaning
words, photos, videos that you produce and upload — is a big part of
the Web 2.0 phenomenon. From homemade videos to blogs on everything
from gaming to traveling, the web is becoming a place for expressing
yourself, sharing and collaborating on what you create. It's
heartening to see people coming together in creative ways to rally
around important issues. In the last month alone, the world has
witnessed a 7.9-magnitude earthquake in China, a devastating cyclone
in Myanmar (Burma), and a voracious wildfire in the Santa Cruz
Mountains of California. People and groups have created everything
from My Maps and KML layers to live video, photos and satellite images
in an effort to share up-to-date information and keep people on the
ground informed. Of course, we can all enjoy a good video about hand-
holding sea otters from time to time, but it's inspiring to see the
power of the web harnessed during more difficult real-world situations

The Google Blog offers frequent updates and insights about our technology and products, and the company at large.

All videos of Prince's unique rendition of Radiohead's early hit were quickly taken down, leaving only a message that his label, NPG Records, had removed the clips, claiming a copyright violation. But the posted videos were shot by fans and, obviously, the song isn't Prince's.

El pueblo donde habito es una villa con casas de piedra, pequeñita y muy amistosa. En él tengo un pequeño apartamento de campo muy cuco que está rodeado por un jardín y una pared que lo delimita. En el pueblo se pueden ver la iglesia recien restaurada y una ermita hecha honrando a San Antonio que se construyó hace poco. Tambien, como no, una visita al restaurante LA PARRILLA se hace imprescindible para tomar fuerzas y recorrer los alrededores.
