internet is increasingly developing into a source of news and information. Even now have beaten the other media except television as the primary source of national and international news. So is the survey conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press in the United States in December.

40 percent of respondents admitted that they obtain national and international news from the Internet, jumped 20 percent compared to September 2007. For the first time since the survey was held, people said that they mostly rely on the Internet as a news source, compared with a newspaper, which is only 35 percent of respondents selected. Television, still the most superior as the main source of information, which is chosen by 70 percent of respondents.

Trends in the Internet as a source of primary information applies to the young. Nearly 6 out of 10 respondents aged under 30 or rather 59%, stated that they have national and international news online. Meanwhile, the same percentage also said the television. Earlier, in September 2007, 68% said the main news source is television, the Internet compared to 34%.

Among the news of the most widely observed by the public include the financial crisis, rising fuel prices some time ago, the problem bailout, and the U.S. Presidential Election.

Shows the percentage of young people who make it big in the internet as a source of information. This is probably because they are also more active in the Internet and utilize the latest technology. In contrast to their older, perhaps more like the conservative media like television.

Now the news and information circulating on the Internet not only through the news portals only. Starting from emails, blogs to social networking sites played a big part in spreading news and information quickly. Through Twitter, for example, people can directly distribute updates in a few seconds and then immediately spread throughout the world. Then, bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious and others also play an active role in the spread of news and information important.

So this shows that it is not possible in the next few years, Internet and television roles become equal as the main source of information. In fact, the Internet has a big chance to beat television, given the increasing trend. Estimated, with more and more Internet users around the world, the Internet's role in life will also become increasingly large

Why Google Sacrifice 6 Service?

Internet giant, Google, also became one of the victims of the economic crisis now engulfing the world. After announcing that they will do layoffs to 100 people and closed some branches. Google also decided to lay off six of their services. 6 service include Dodgeball, Google Catalog Search, Google Mashup Editor, Google Notebook, and Jaiku. One more, Google will remove the ability of users to upload videos on Google Video. This step for efficiency but also for the sake of focus.

Dodgeball is a service which allows users to convey a message to his friends when he was located at a location close to them, so that might be arranged a meeting. However, this service is only useful if the user's friends are listed in Dodgeball.

Dodgeball was acquired by Google in 2005, but unfortunately not much cared for Google with serious consequences in the year 2007 the two founders of Dodgeball quit Google.

Google Catalog Search
Google Catalog Search, launched in 2001 is a Google service that allows users to search for various product catalogs. However, this service was not too popular. Even so, the technology developed for the Google Catalog is the basis of the Google Book Search

Google Mashup Editor
Google Mashup Editor is a set of tools that allows developers to create web applications and combine them with other Google services like Google Maps and Google Base. Google Mashup Editor is currently in closed beta testing phase. The possibility of this service is stopped because most of the functions already available in the Google App Engine. Thus, the Google Mashup Editor users can switch to Google App Engine.

Google Notebook
Google Notebook, which is similar to Google Docs just more simple, would not be dismissed completely. It's just that, Google will continue its development and there will be no features that increase. This service will be maintained, especially since a lot of users. The reason for this development does not proceed is because Google has other services that offer seruipa functions, such as Google Docs, SearchWiki, Tasks Gmail and Google Bookmarks. However, many argue that these services have not really match the Google Notebook.

Jaiku, which is social networking with a fate similar to Dodgeball, which is less developed post-acquisition. Jaiku shape similar to Twitter, which is a micro-blogging service, but has other advantages such as can import feeds from other services. Google acquired Jaiku in October 2007, but then Google closed the registration for new accounts. In the future, Jaiku will not shut down completely, but uses code that will be open source and entered into the Google Code.

Google Video
Google Video service also will not close completely, but only the possibility the user to upload a new video. Moreover, Google now has a Youtube that much more popular. Google this step simply because they want the focus to the search engines, thus helping users to find videos that they want, such as Google expressed in this blog.

In focus, sometimes we need to sacrifice some things that may deviate from the intended focus. That's what Google is doing now. Just Google it seems necessary to better listen to customers, because Google Notebook was so popular and caused many to lose.

Sometimes to show his prowess, he was pleased threatened to dismiss the men even though his errors small. Faced with this boss can be a difficult challenge. Tricks you can do is to try to "fly low", not too low profile, but try to get attention from employers that are higher than the intruder was. Find a mentor or a boss that is higher than the bully to maintain both a shield from the bully.

The Micro-Manager
This type of love analyzing every inch of the actions of the men, even the slightest. Actually the action of the employer may be encouraged to work harder, disciplined, and diligent. However, if you're the type of people who appreciate the freedom, will be difficult to accept. If you want to face this kind of boss, it is important to you is not seen to take the power of the employer. Usually the type of leadership is mikro-manager insecure type of person, it is very important to continue to give him information about your activities.

The Politics of Office
This type of boss could be like your friends close, but it also can suddenly take such opposite positions, or even attacked. Things like do not keep their promises, false information, the takeover of ideas, are the usual things that happen when dealing with this kind of boss. The best way to deal with this boss is to communicate through writing. In this way, all words, questions, statements, requests, proposals, and everything is neatly recorded and there is proof. If your boss is trying to solve a verbal agreement, continue the confirmation by e-mail, make sure you send an e-mail copy to the other party in company.

The Senior
This type is usually more due to be promoted senior enough, not because of capability. This type of boss are usually less readily, always doing everything according to the old procedures, and less open to all efforts to innovate. Afraid to make decisions, because usually this type of boss has a problem to keep the moral subordinates, so they have a problem with flexibility. Usually, the type of boss who is less afraid of such initiatives will change, so do not be too underpreasure proposed ideas that are too fundamental. It would be better if you want to ask a fundamental change, make a big meeting if you need to get supporters.

Type Drama Queen
This type does not always refer to women, men too can be like this. In that sense, the type of person who likes to complain, making small problems become big, and make everything too much. Too self-seeking, and could see things from a larger glasses. They tend to reject the solution of the most visible, just to make the situation more complicated and longer. In fact, it rarely makes the company issues a private matter. Drama queen was never satisfied. Do not allow yourself to be manipulated and thinking about the boss of this type for too long, you could be sucked into the negative side. Very important to keep a positive mind and refer to the solution. As much as possible, away from the boss is like this, because you get too focused on the interest alone. But do not forget to keep a good relationship with him.

The Quiet
Typically, this type can make you confused with your position. They rarely give feedback and tends to establish an executive decision without informing the staff. As a result, the left hand never knew what was doing the right hand. Often occurs miscommunication and inequality. Faced with this kind of leadership type can be very frustrating, but it is important to keep your sanity. Usually this kind of boss do not realize their mistake, so do not be afraid to share your knowledge and to voice your opinion. It may be that you will enter into the circle of supervisors and make changes in the work environment.

It's difficult when we are in a working environment which is led by incompetent superiors. However, if you feel you can and have ideas for change, keep trying. Good luck!
