| Google U.S. Government Search offers a single location for searching
| across U.S. government information, and for keeping up to date on
| government news. You can choose to search for content located on either
| U.S. federal, state and local government websites or the entire Web --
| from the same search box. Below the search box, the homepage includes
| government-specific news content from both government agencies and
| press outlets. You can personalize the page by adding content feeds
| on government or other topics that you're interested in.



In other non-related news, Bill Gates is set to retire. The current CEO was
said to need a replacement, so the future looks uninterrupted for Google.
Unless Yahoo can pull something off...

Uhm, Gates retires, the man who is responsible for every bug in XP?


I wonder if a MS without Gates is that good.

Also, I wonder if a Google replacing MS is a good thing.

"Don't be evil", I mean, why does a company need to say that?

I am not sure either, but standards will at least prevail more widely. There
will be choice (on the desktop). They will need to interoperate (play nice)
with other Web services though.

It's Brin's way of saying "we are not like Microsoft. If you don't like
Microsoft, stick with us". This appeals to a large audience, so...

OTOH, it's good that someone as Ballmer hangs around, it makes the other
MS people hopefully think a bit :-D.

What standards? W3C hasn't published a single standard. While MS has a
part of .NET as an ECMA standard.

Talking about w3c, ever had a look at the crap Google spits out?

Google makes up their own "standards" remember the wonderful "nofollow"

A large clueless audience and the typical fanboy crowd, sure. Google is
just the new Microsoft, if Microsoft lets them, which I doubt.
