Launch Google Earth. Go to the intersection of Centennial and 2nd Street in Tustin, California. I cant tell if that is advertising or actually there, but it looks Photoshopped to me....I understand blocking out government areas that are of sensitive nature, but adding in advertising where they want seems shady to me. There may be other instances, but I happen to stumble upon this one.


Taha
I had a kind-of economy threatning discovery which i wanted to share:
Ok so... there are a bazillion lawsuits going on out there about copyright, but, if you open a dictionary to the first page(where all the publication dates and stuff is) it says:
"No part of this publication may reproduced in part or whole, by any means..." yada yada yada Basically, right then and there, that means you cant "reproduce any part" by "any means" or in informal language that means that talking, typing, and writing in english are infringement of copyright!!!!!!!
Just thought i should bring tht up (might be interesting).

You mentioned today that "google said to news.com" Does that mean that google is new talking to news.com again?
