During the TechCrunch50 Conference 2008 Marissa Mayer announced Google News Archive Search that makes old newspapers accessible and searchable online. It was already fascinating to read articles in The Times Archive going back to 1785. But now the Google News Archive Search offers an amazing amount of historical newspaper articles. There is more information about the Google News Archive Search in the Official Google Blog.
Google Chrome is already one week old, but there is still a lot of talk about the new kid on the block. It has been the first internet browser that has been the topic in nearly every newspaper and on TV. At the beginning the media coverage was quite positive, but became more and more negative. Now not the speed or how the browser deals with frozen tabs are reported, but that Google Chrome is insecure and that Google is gathering more and more information about the users of Google browser. Even the German nationalwide news programme tagesschau was reporting that the The Federal Office for Information Security warned of Google Chrome. But only a few media have been mentioning the release of Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 althought seems that IE8 is another step foward to standards compliance and security.
