The homepage of Pirate Bay disappeared from Google’s search results Friday, after Google allegedly received a DMCA takedown notice targeting the site.
The move is unexpected because, while the Pirate Bay is rife with pirated material, the site’s spare landing page contains no content to speak of — just links, a logo and a search box. By law, DMCA notices are targeted to specific infringing content.
Google is making Android, its open-source mobile operating system, sweeter still. Code-named Donut, Android 1.6's updates include CDMA connectivity, better search capabilities, voice dialing and a quicker camera.
Never have mobile operating systems so roused the appetite.
