Another side of Google

Some interesting links I found:

Google Moms
A tribute for mothers belonged to the workers in Google I believe?

Google Logos
An online museum for logos used by Google.
Gooogie
A simple site to prank like Google.

Google’s hoaxes:

Mentelplex
A search technology that supposedly read the user’s mind to determine what the user wanted to search for, thus eliminating the step of actually typing in the search query.

PigeonRank
Google reveals the technology behind its PageRank Systems—PigeonRank.

Google Copernicus Center
Google claimed they were hiring for a job center on the moon. The Google Copernicus Center claims to be opening in “spring of 2007” on the moon.

Google Gulp
Google Gulp is a fictitious drink that claims it will increase the intelligence of the drinker. In order to obtain a Google Gulp, you need the cap of someone else’s Google Gulp. This is a parody of Gmail which was initially available by invitation only.

TiSP – Toilet Interent Service Provider
A free wireless Internet service that is connected through the user’s home toilet by flushing down the cables.

Gmail paper
The service offered to allow users of Google’s free webmail service to add e-mails to a “Paper Archive,” which Google would print and mail via traditional post with unobtrusive ads to cover the cost of postage.

Gmail Custom Time
Gmail’s sign-in page and a banner at the top of each gmail inbox announced a new feature, called Gmail Custom Time, that would allow its users to “pre-date” their messages and choose to have the message appear as “read” or “unread”. The feature only allows for ten pre-dated emails per year, claiming that any more “would cause people to lose faith in the accuracy of time, thus rendering the feature useless.”

Google Manpower Search
Google launches Manpower Search (谷歌人肉搜索) in China (google.cn). This new feature is powered by 25 million volunteers who do the searching around the clock. When the user entered a keyword, volunteers will search any possible answers from a mass of paper documents as well as online resources. The user is expected to get the search result within 32 seconds.
