YouTube announced it's the end, as they're close to finding a winner:

"We started YouTube in 2005 as a contest with a simple goal to find the best video in the world. We had no idea we'd get such a great response..."

The new scentsation in search. "Google Nose leverages new and existing technologies to offer the sharpest olfactory experience available".

Virgin's glass-bottomed plane

Richard Branson blogged that Virgin will be introducing planes which let you look down below through a glass panel, sending shivers to acrophobics everywhere.
