Google mistakes entire web for malware

Stephen Roberts

Not the whole web

Google didn't mistake the whole web for malware - its adverts ^w sponsored links at the top of the search results were OK apparently. I didn't get a screenshot though.

Click a sponsored link - that's OK, anything else is bad - a way to boost revenue or keep the advertisers happy?

Online crime maps go live

<em>power</em>

So I went to my local police map, typed in my postcode, got a naff map and some figures that said some types of crime had gone up and some have gone down, and then I was filled with a feeling that I couldn't quite describe. Was it apathy; was it disinterest; was it antipathy? I wasn't sure quite what I was feeling so I checked the press release. Empowerment - that's it, I'm empowered now. I feel so empowered I think my head is going to explode. I feel like I'm in a dilbert cartoon. I think I'll have to go and lie down for a bit I'm until the empowered-ness wears off.

Mines the cloak of empowerability...

"However im hard pushed to think of a one word alternative to pro-active for example."

Er, how about "Active", or is my irony filter faulty?
