REUTERS— A confidential, inside resource, has revealed that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission has levied a 22.5 million dollar fine on Google. The search giant broke the FTC”s privacy requirements… it secretly tracked Google searches on Safari browsers.
The $22.5 M fine will be the largest fine ever imposed on a company by the FTC. Google claims that the tracking was unintentional… and that no harm was done…
“The FTC is focused on a 2009 help center page published more than two years before our consent decree,” says a Google email statement. “We have now changed that page and taken steps to remove the ad cookies, which collected no personal information, from Apple’s browsers.”
The incident comes after ongoing speculation that Google is tracking and collecting searches made by users… As far as we know, only Safari browsers have been tracked; but it is not too far-fetched to think that Google has its eyes on other browsers.

An insider has just leaked that Microsoft is planning to seriously overhaul their current Microsoft website to something completely…um…. “Apple-like” Microsoft is taking a page of of its rival’s playbook and making a super high resolution image the centerpiece for the website. You can preview the new website at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/preview/
Just like Cupertino’s website, Microsoft’s website will feature smooth image transition and clean, clutter-free layout… not that Microsoft’s current website is too noisy… some fans are saying that the current website is much better than one to come…
Go ahead and compare… Below is Microsoft’s current website…. Let the comments fly and tell us which is the better design.

Microsoft is definitely coming out with many new ideas and products. From a new version of Windows to developing Windows Live Wave 5, the Software Giant surely is churning new and fresh ideas. Redmond is also coming out with the newest version of Internet Explorer, IE 10.
Internet Explorer 9 has been one of the most streamlined and secure web browsers Microsoft has released yet.
IE 9 has much more support for modern web standards that Internet Explorer 8 did not have. IE 9 also has much more security features than IE 8. A download manager is also included.
The search bar and address bar were also combined in IE 9 creating a more streamlined interface. It is also only available on Windows Vista and Windows 7; it’s only fault is that it doesn’t support Windows XP.
Microsoft is not done releasing browsers, not by a long shot, even though it received some of the best reviews for an Internet Explorer version in years. The newest version of Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 10, is expected to be released with Windows 8, which in turn is expected to be released in 2012. Internet Explorer 10 will actually have two interfaces, one similar to IE 9 and another based on the Metro design ( as seen above), a design language developed by Microsoft. The Metro version will allow Metro apps in Windows 8 run on the browser. The interface based on the traditional IE interface (seen below) will allow plug-ins, while the Metro interface will not.
The developer preview of IE 10 has been released since September 13.
