Yesterday a link to a page which featured every single episode of The Office (US) went mainstream and circled the web like wild fire. Less than 24 hours later that page, and the site, is nothing but a distant memory. While the site might be gone, it’s far from lost. If you still need your episode fix, here’s the list in all its former glory, courtesy of Google’s cache — you just gotta love Google. But get it quick, there’s no telling how soon before it expires…
Update: A mirror of the original site, which features nearly every episode of all most of your favorite TV shows, has been set-up here and here. For up to the minute news on the resurrection of TV Links, check out their forums here.
Maria Bartiromo: I’m curious, have you ever Googled anybody? Do you use Google?
George Bush: Ah, Occasionally. One of the things I’ve used on The Google is, ah, to pull up maps. And it’s, ah, very interesting to see — I’ve forgot the name of the program — but where you get the satellite, and you can — like, I kinda like to look at the ranch. It remind me of where I wanna be sometimes.
Meanwhile Google has reported that its profits nearly doubled over the past year. In the third quarter Google’s online advertising business was responsible for generating a staggering $1.86 billion, up 84% from the same period last year.
After watching this mildly entertaining theory parody on the future of YouTube following its recent acquisition by Google, I was reminded of the very well polished video, EPIC 2014. Originally created back in 2004, EPIC 2014 attempted to predict and map Google’s rise to power over the next 10 years. Two years later it’s easy to say that the video isn’t accurate, but it’s not entirely off target either; and it’s definitely an interesting watch.
YouTube is the new MySpace, at least that what Google is banking on as is music mogul Diddy. Check out Diddy’s very own channel here where you can watch him order up a Burger King whopper his way — cause you know, that’s cool.
Barely one year old, and without having made any profit to date, video sharing phenomenon YouTube has reportedly received an offer from Google. The pricetag on one the internet’s hottest sites — a staggering $1.6 billion.
A click here, a view there, just how do those fractions of a cent add up when using Google’s AdSense? For some, they can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions. Topping out the list of The Internet’s Biggest Google Whores include:
– Markus Frind: $300,000 per month
– Kevin Rose: $250,000 per month
– Jeremy Shoemaker: $140,000 per month
– Jason Calacanis: $120,000 per month
The small print: These results aren’t typical … your actual mileage may will vary.
Google takes us back, way back — today the search giant announced they have made available over 200 years worth of news articles through their new News Archive Search feature. This latest addition allows users to search and explore newspaper articles and digests published as far back as the 1700s all the way up to recent online content. The goal here is to be able to explore history as it unfolded. Results are offered from both free and subscription websites based on relevance. A timeline is also offered allowing users to view key dates that are associated with a particular story.
