"the crowd, effectively, becomes the news editor"?

Er, no they don't.

Top Ten Arcade Classics

Not bad

But I'd have to have Exerion and Xevious on my all-time list.

Honorable mentions for Gyruss, Double Dragon and Sinistar (if only for booming "Run coward!!" voice that punctuates the game).

I'm getting nostalgic. TIme to dig up my MAME ROMs....

Google to allow trade marks as keywords across Europe

Bad Google, bad

The Portakabin case may be a "brand-becomes-generic" situation, by generally speaking this is a very bad move from Google.

This will affect smaller businesses in particular. There's now nothing to stop competitors outbidding on a trade marked business or product name and injecting their advertising into search results.

Unless you're able to match your competitors financial resources and "buy" the keywords back you're screwed.
