How does that relate to Google Analytics, which Bill has complained about for
being service in hibernation? I guess the one-word body did not make
anything clear and it lacked context (apart from insinuation in the subject

Since you brought this up, let's not forget Google's dark fibre (
http://www.pbs.org/cringely/pulpit/pulpit20051117.html )

"We're talking about 5000 Opteron processors and 3.5 petabytes of disk
storage that can be dropped-off overnight by a tractor-trailer rig. The idea
is to plant one of these puppies anywhere Google owns access to fiber,
basically turning the entire Internet into a giant processing and storage

It no longer seems like a conspiracy theorists' haven. Contacts with ISP's
and large companies (
http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/business/1700AP_Wi_Fi_Network.html ), for
example, as well rumours about Internet of their own (
) make people talk. About a year ago, the idea of submitting Web sites
directly to Google still seemed laughable.

By the way, a word came out this morning to say that Google Maps in the UK
were further refined. It's not truly associated with search, but there is
now plane footage in Google Maps, which makes 'satellite' footage even
crisper and I could even spot tiny people on the ground in Manchester.
Google is watching. Has anyone seen the 3-D rendering of buildings in Google
Earth yet?
