GOOGLE RULES with GOOGLE TRENDS

Google Trends is an interesting tool that can track real-world phenomena as it happens based on searches that you & I make on Google - often obtaining precious data before professional communities (such as doctors).

An example?

Based on the analysis of search terms relating to flu, Google Trends was able to understand where there were flu outbreaks before the national medical institutions did.

Read the study here. It's quite fascinating.

The ultimate question is: Will Google soon rule the world?

;)

Ciao, until the next time!

WHERE DO YOU BUY YOR MUSIC?

According to recent a report, since the music industry's peak year of 2000, album sales dropped more than 516 million units, a 54.6 percent decline per Digital Music News.

That's a lot of lost sales and a lot of lost jobs!

However, all of us have our 80GB iPODs filled to the brim with music...

So - Where do YOU get your music from?

;)
