Google Real Estate

Google Real Estate

At one hand google is investing in the core business applications, like the acquisition of the company handling the flight booking updates in North America and Europe – and on the other “Google Maps with Real Estate” … This is getting crazy ….. go to maps.google.com and from the “more” option select real estate option. here you go some of very nice and juicy properties throughout the world.

So next time you dont need to call up your friends in the specific area and ask for the price of property.

Happy Googling the real estate ….

PTA to “Monitor” Search Engines and Websites

June 26, 2010 2 comments

Following news has appeared in todays dawn.com , as per my understanding – other than url blocking ISPs and upstream providers in pakistan do not have any proper mechasnism of content filterning and/or “monitoring”. Any how i give some credit to PTA here , atleast in not immediately issueing the orders on the judgement of Lahore high court.

ISLAMABAD: An official says Pakistan will start monitoring seven major websites, including Google, for anti-Islamic content. It also is blocking at least 17 other, lesser-known sites it deems offensive to Muslims.
The decision comes in response to a recent order from a judge in Punjab province.
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority spokesman Khurram Mehran said Friday that the sites to be monitored include Yahoo, Google, MSN, Hotmail, YouTube, Amazon and Bing.
Mehran said the telecommunication authority would block links to sacrilegious content found on those sites.
Pakistan temporarily banned Facebook for about two weeks in May amid anger over a page that encouraged users to post images of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad. — AP
