Geolocation tech slices, dices Web

Monday, July 12, 2004 Posted: 1:03 PM EDT (1703 GMT)

NEW YORK (AP) -- Type "dentist" into Google from New York, and you'll get ads for dentists in the city. Try watching a Cubs baseball game from a computer in Chicago, and you'll be stymied. Pre-existing local TV rights block the webcast.

Lessons from Google's IPO


After more than more than three months of filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, public miscues, pricing changes and enough legalese to make a lawyer dizzy, Google's initial public offering is one for the record books.


Experts at Wharton and elsewhere say Google's IPO, on the surface, seems to be a success, but they note it's too early to issue a verdict. After all, Google did raise $1.67 billion by going public a...

A Motive For IT Spending
Erika Brown, 08.26.04, 6:00 AM ET

SAN FRANCISCO - It's been a tough recession for tech spending and a tough summer for tech stocks. But a Texas software outfit might give investors a reason to get back in the market.

At home with MIT Professor John Maeda
By Katie Johnston, Globe Staff | August 26, 2004

August 26, 2004, 12:38 PM PDT
