And how about perhaps being suspicious of gobbledy-gook domain names? And, domains ending in .CN? I know gobbledy-gook in of itself might be hard to detect (particularly considering all the gobbledy-gook that still slips past spam filters on email) and unclear in of itself if it represents a bad content site, but youd perhaps expect that one could tell whether the character strings contained patterns which match names/words by some percentage of fuzziness, and red-flag those that dont match more normal naming patterns ” associate lower trust scores or quality scores with them.
Even sadder, some of the domain names involved were so new they shouldve easily been detectable and flagged as suspicious just on that basis alone. For instance, I just looked up registration info for one of the sites IDed by SunBelt, luewusxrijke.cn, and found that itd only been registered on November 24th! Why didnt registrar status provide enough distrust to sandbox these sites?Comments

The service could let users access documents from different computers, and could be released as early as a few months from now, according to sources. In other words, not much more than MG Siegler of ParisLemon had back in September.
That Google is coming out with something that offers storage is pretty much a fait accompli at this point (thats French for where the hell is it already). The company already sells storage for GMail and Google Docs users who want more, and as I mentioned in a recent post here, Google has been letting Zoho get out in front on the offline document-editing front, using Googles own Gears tool. Its just a matter of time.
The first sightings of the GDrive in the wild came over a year ago from Corsin Carmichael, who spotted code referring to an internal storage system code-named Platypus (although according to the WSJ, inside Google they refer to it by the creative name My Stuff). And as this Microsoft blog notes, the software giant has had something similar ” Windows Live SkyDrive ” on the market since the summer, although it offers a measly one gigabyte of storage, which is pretty lame.
