On Friday we heard a rumor that Google TV would be launching in the UK some time within the next six months, and now Google’s Eric Schmidt has confirmed that Google TV will launch in the UK in early 2012.

Google has said that the UK version of Google TV will feature content from popular on demand services like the BBC’s iPlayer and the ITV player, with more services being added before the launch.

Google TV hasn’t exactly been that popular in the US, with many manufacturers of Google TV devices dropping the price of their hardware including Logitech and Sony, it will be interesting to see if Google can make Google TV popular here in the UK and Europe.

Google offers some insight behind the infamously unknown inner workings of Search.

It’s extremely rare that Google gives us a look at what’s behind the curtain over at Search. Given its secure grip over the platform, it’s entirely justified why there’s so much skepticism regarding its tactics. With nearly no explanation and sometimes little justification, Google can entirely revolutionize the way Internet search retrieves your results. It’s a major frustration for Web properties and eyebrow-lifting concern for consumers.

Its Panda update (versions one and two) were downright destructive and to a degree ineffective. Google’s been continuing to crank out adjustments (500 in the last year) and is (relatively) happy to keep us updated of this progress – but algorithm insights are far and few between. Obviously Google can’t reveal all of these secrets: SEO experts and spammers would b ... Read more »

It’s hardly a theory and the only guys testing if it were possible are running models in Mexico. See, the idea goes that in the darkness of our past when bacteria enjoyed dominion over a malformed world, particles broke off or were convulsed out of the Earth’s crust, sending them to the stars. What happened next? Read more after the jump.

Based on simulations at Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, thousands of particles ‘ejected’ from Earth have reached Mars and beyond. (Remember: according to the simulation.) Of course, this is essentially toying with an unproven scenario, but the scientists involved are encouraged by the results so far.


What they ultimately want to find out is if such a phenomenon as Earth-based comets did exist, the question remains if it somehow brought microbial life on our planet elsewhere. At the rate they’re going, it will take some time befo ... Read more »

When the acquisition of Motorola by Google completes Google will have added around 17,000 patent plus 7,500 pending applications to its armoury of patents. But Bloomberg is reporting just 18 of these patents could be worth the $12.5 billion Google is paying for Motorola.

David Mixon, a patent lawyer at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings in Huntsville, Alabama calculated, that out of all the patents Google will receive. There are inventions dating back to 1994 which form the heart of three Motorola lawsuits against Apple, and could really be the star patents in the haul for Google.

The 18 patents cover areas that are essential to the mobile-device industry, including : location services, antenna designs, e-mail transmission, touch- screen motions, software-application management and third- generatio ... Read more »
