When using GMail Enterprise, how does one configure to embrace best business practices allowing for eDiscovery in the cloud, should that ever occur.

You can use Postini with Google Apps for retention and eDiscovery.

Google settles with FTC over "Google Buzz"; Google agrees to have its Privacy policies audited for the next two decades!


Google has settled Federal Trade Commission charges that it violated its own privacy practices when it launched Google Buzz. Google agreed to implement a “comprehensive privacy program” that will be regularly audited for 20 years.


The FTC alleged that Google misrepresented its privacy claims because it led Gmail users to believe they could choose to join Buzz. Instead, Google integrated Buzz and Gmail.


Needless to say, the Google Buzz implementation led to a bevy of complaints. Under the settlement with the FTC, Google agreed to the following:

  • No more misrepresenting privacy or confidentiality of user data;
  • Google must get consent before sharing information with third parties;
  • Google has to establish a privacy program;
  • That privacy program will be audited by third parties every two years for the next two decades.

Overall, the FTC is making a statement with this Google settlement. Regular audits are designed to keep Google in check going forward and are going to be an extra cost to Google for doing business.

Anyone completed the Google Analytics or Adwords certifications?

PS if you're not already doing so check out Google Chrome's extensions. Efficiency just tripled! FireBug, IETab, FB, Reader, Maps,, SEOmoz, Slacker/Pandora, Voice they're all there!

Live, from Google I/O!
Thursday, May 06, 2010
More than 4,000 developers will be joining us at Google I/O on May 19-20, and if we had the capacity, we’d host many more. In order to give the entire developer community a chance to participate live, we're happy to announce that both keynote presentations will be streamed live. To watch, just go to at the start of the keynotes each day. We recommend watching on a high-speed connection for the best quality.

Here’s the schedule for the keynotes at I/O — it’s also available on our agenda page:
Day 1 Keynote: Wednesday, May 19, 9:00 -10:30am PT
Day 2 Keynote: Thursday, May 20, 8:30-10:00am PT
Both keynote sessions feature exciting new technologies, so be sure to mark your calendars!

Thanks for the feedback Daniel. I have the same 2 preferences: Gmail as my Dashboard and Chrome as my browser.

Hi David - In our experience most people want to start on the mail page, but I know a few who do iGoogle. We always setup a simple URL for them such as re: Preferred Browser - Its fastest on Chrome.
