Karen / Google Health Advertising Blog:
My opinion and Google's  —  Posted by Lauren Turner, Account Planner, Health  —  Well, I've learned a few things since I posted on Friday.  For one thing, even though this is a new blog, we have readers!  That's a good thing.  Not so good is that some readers thought the opinion I expressed …
Michael Arrington / TechCrunch:
Google Faux Pas Retracted  —  I'm betting that Lauren Turner's job duties at Google will no longer include blogging.  Yesterday she wrote an anti-Sicko (Michael Moore's new movie lambasting the U.S. health care industry) post on the Google Health Advertising blog, and encouraged health care companies …
Dan Farber / Between the Lines:
U.S. healthcare industry: Google wants to protect you from Michael Moore's Sicko  —  Taking a break from reading the wall-to-wall iPhone coverage on TechMeme, I ran across a post from Lauren Turner, who works for Google as an account planner selling ads to the healthcare industry.

Why Apple will NOT Take Over the wireless industry  —  In response to the article How Apple Will Use The iPhone To Take Over The Wireless Industry, I'm opening by saying "take over" is a ludicrous claim.  Do you have any idea the sheer volume of mobile handsets sold worldwide?
Discussion: and Insider Chatter
Scott Karp / Publishing 2.0:
How Apple Will Use The iPhone To Take Over The Wireless Industry  —  Steve Jobs isn't stupid.  He knows that AT&T Wireless sucks.  So why lock the revolutionary iPhone into a crappy network?  —  Because Jobs knows that everyone will buy an iPhone anyway, even if they hate the network.
Ryan Block / Engadget:
Poll: got iPhone activation problems?  —  We heard yesterday that despite some issues over AT&T way, iPhone activations would (hopefully) be up and running smoothly by as early as this morning.  Of course, evidenced by the flood of users continuing to tip us, we'd say a great deal of you are still experiencing activation problems.
Jonathan Dee / New York Times:
All the News That's Fit to Print Out  —  When news broke on May 8 about the arrest of a half-dozen young Muslim men for supposedly planning to attack Fort Dix, alongside the usual range of reactions — disbelief, paranoia, outrage, indifference, prurience — a newer one was added …
Discussion: SMC and Media SITREP
And now the French Web 2.0 Wave  —  France leads Europe in its enthusiasm for Web 2.0 startups, an industry that has doubled in size across the continent since 2005.  According to Dow Jones/Venture One data French start-ups raised close to $40 million in venture capital in 2006 …

War and PDF: Microsoft submits XPS to standards body  —  Microsoft has announced that it has chartered a new Technical Committee to submit a new standard to the standards-setting body Ecma International.  The would-be standard involves "creating an XML-based electronic paper format …
Stan Schroeder / franticindustries:
Pownce, the Twitter Killer  —  I hate titles like "X is the Y killer" because they're usually just a cheap way to grab attention.  But, if there ever was a clearcut situation of a new application that completely eclipses an old, popular one, then it's the case of Pownce vs. Twitter.
Discussion:, WinExtra and Mashable!
David Reid / BBC:
Beating congestion with mobiles  —  Working out how people use a city's roads and planning for it, can be difficult, but research into mobile phone use may hold the key to preventing traffic jams in the future.  —  If you do not like crowds, congestion, chaos - and few do - then you might want to avoid Rome's rush-hour.
Wendy / Wendy's Blog:
AGING THE INTERNET PREMATURELY, ONE PDP AT A TIME  —  After blogging about ICANN's new gTLD policy or lack thereof, I've had several people ask me why I care so much about ICANN and new top-level domains.  Domain names barely matter in a world of search and hyperlinks, I'm told …
Discussion: Boing Boing and Seven Mile
Tony Ruscoe / Google Blogoscoped:
Google Docs Dictionary and Thesaurus  —  Earlier this week, Ionut Alex.  Chitu noted that Google was planning to integrate with Encyclopedia Britannica and Merriam-Webster's dictionary and thesaurus.  After a bit of digging around, I've found a way you can enable the dictionary and thesaurus features now …
