Realizing that "Online security is an important topic", Google introduces an Online Security Blog. The Blog will update regularly on recent trends, scoops, interesting findings, and endeavors related to online security.

For their first post, the blog discusses Malware, a software which can enter your computer and damage data surreptitiously. In case, a site is risky Google will mention it in the Search Results as "This site may harm your computer". Currently, Malware activity leads in China, followed by the U.S., Germany and Russia.

At DNA, an update says Google Inc will digitize over 8,00,000 books and texts available at the Mysore University.

Other books and manuscripts include works on ayurveda, mathematics, medicine, science, astrology and economy.

According to the WSJ unnamed sources say Google Inc and SalesForce.com Inc will plan on forming an alliance so together, they can crush and topple Microsoft.

The Wall Street Journal says "one outcome could be a Web-based offering that integrates some of Google's online services such as email and instant-messaging with those of Salesforce.com, whose customer-relationship management tools help salespeople track their accounts." Brad Reback, CIBC World Markets analyst says, "it's not out of the realm of possibility that Google ends up buying Salesforce.com."

UK Telegraph says “according to silicon valley gossip” Yahoo! is in talks to buy Bebo, a social networking site created by Michael Birch and Xochi Birch.

Other reports say, "Yahoo! is rumoured to be weighing a $1 billion (£500m) bid for Bebo, the privately owned social networking site, after shuffling its management team to better place itself for acquisitions….Given Bebo’s strength in Britain, an approach by Yahoo! would be likely to involve Toby Coppel, the Yahoo! executive who previously led the company’s global mergers and acquisitions team and was recently appointed managing director of the group’s operations in Europe."

A post in WebmasterWorld says Yahoo! has deleted all his 2005 PPC data. The report says:

"I just got off the phone with an support rep from Yahoo. I was trying to pull some data from the old Overture system from 2005 and none of the reports were pulling up. The rep said that this data was deleted from their servers because they needed to make space for some other things."

Vecosys suggests rumors are floating about Google's pending purchase of Feedburner.

A user comments "I am shocked that nobody has yet snapped up feedburner. Great product, great features and great audience. When i see the money paid for absoulte shit companies, feedburner is a pure gem." In contrast another says "I hope that Google doesn’t ruin feedburner with the integration of ads into feeds. However, this acquisition does open the way for a new ‘independent’ feedburner equivalent to steal the show – but that’s if site owners can be bothered to migrate away."

CMS Watch says Google Analytics is "not yet enterprise ready".

Phil Kemelor, the Head Analyst who was incharge of the report said, "Google can rightly boast that its Google Analytics service can process enterprise-level web metrics loads. But there's more to analytics than processing: integration, support, and documentation can be decisive to e-marketing success."
