Google started monetizing Google Finance

Google has started looking for ways to monetize it's other products apart from ubiquitous search product.

Now we can see advertisements in Google Finance .

Well it's a good strategy for Google to start making money from other products apart from search, at the same time it raises question about the slow down in advertisement revenue. They have started displaying advertisement from this week and this is after approximately 2-3 years of it's launch.

After few months we might see banner ads and side advertisements in Google Finance as we do in Yahoo Finance .

I am waiting to see they doing the same in other products (Google docs, GOOG-411 and so on).

What's wrong with the most liberal state of USA - Proposition 8 CA passed

Yesterday was a big day in the history of United States of America when Mr. Barack Obama was elected as a 44th president. Congratulations to him and Democratic Party and all his supporters.

It was equally disappointing day for group of people GLGays and Lesbians in California as proposition 8 passed. Proposition 8 bans the marriage between same sex couple. Here is the break down of the votes based on number of categories i.e. sex, age, income, race, education, ideology and so on. When i discussed this with my wife, she said atleast 20% of the voters must not have understood the proposition i.e. this proposition will ban same sex marriage {so you have to be fair to this group of people and vote No i.e. against this proposition}.

This is big blow to gays and lesbians as it is completely against the principle of fairness in this very democratic country. This proposition is stripping gay couples from their right to marry i.e. let them live the way they want. These group of people should be allowed to make their own choice i.e. no one should dictate to whom they should get married. This is purely wrong done by the voters of California.

If things like this are allowed that day is not far when a new proposition will be passed to ban marriage between different races!!

Come on Californians FIGHT for it and be fair to everyone.

My vote - Election 2008, CA Propositions

We should have a new bill in USA congress for allowing immigrants (H, B, L, K, J and so on) to vote virtually over the net(if not physically). Well immigrants are subject to taxation (Federal, State, Social and Medicare) which is same as citizens so not voting power. That will be ideal Democracy. I can go over this for hours but the point of this post is to vote for the election (no matter if it is not counted)

John MacCain ===> No
Barrack Obama ===> Yes

When the whole US is concentrating on United States presidential election 2008, California state has it's State Election 2008

There will be twelve propositions too on the ballot paper. With the same clause as above and being Californian I am voting here.

Proposition 1A Yes

Proposition 2 Yes

Proposition 3 Yes

Proposition 4 No

Proposition 5 Yes

Proposition 6 Yes

Proposition 7 Yes

Proposition 8 No

Proposition 9 No

Proposition 10 Yes
