Google To Launch Venture Fund(July 30, 2008 TechCrunch)
The WSJ is reporting that Google is set to launch a venture fund to give it the option of investing in startups instead of just flat out buying them.
Google has purchased the start-up immediately up to now.

What is the necessity for the indirect investment?
This point is interesting for me.

How To Lose Your Cuil 20 Seconds After Launch (July 29, 2008 TechCrunch)
The hype cycle now lasts less than a day. Take yesterday’s over-hyped launch of stealth search startup Cuil , which was quickly followed by a backlash when everyone realized that it was selling a bill of goods. This was entirely the company’s own fault. It pre-briefed every blogger and tech journalist on the planet, but didn’t allow anyone to actually test the search engine before the launch.
A lot of criticisms are drawn to Cuil of a new search engine.
It is a criticism to the Web search result.
A lot of bloggers and journalist should have been expecting it of a new search engine.
Having advertised it to the blogger and the journalist all over the world came to cause a lot of criticisms oppositely.
And, this news comes to spread all over the world.
