Google in TV Deal with New Channel "Current"
Search Engine giant teams up with Al Gore and his new TV network

 10:33 pm on Apr 4, 2005 (gmt 0)

Guess it was just a matter of time before Google worked with the man who created the Internet.


Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore on Monday unveiled his new television network, "Current," which aims to attract younger viewers with short videos and a tie-in with the popular Google Inc. search engine.


In addition to the videos, the new network reached a pact with the search firm to include Google data on the most popular Web searches.

The deal came despite early skepticism from Sergey Brin, a co-founder of Google, the No. 1 Web search engine that earlier this year stepped into the realm of entertainment by releasing a test video search service that pulls up still shots from such content providers as Fox News, PBS and the NBA.

The original reference to the creator of the internet was probably a snide reference to Al Gore once claiming that he invented it.

And, of course, that never actually happened:


Must... think... for... self...

Google may have just jumped the shark. Anything to do with Al Gore's politics will surely reflect poorly. Incredible!

>>>jumped the shark

Love that term. The Fonz lives in infamy.

OK, he didn't invent it, he created it. Bl**dy journalists! :)

Sorry, I was just trying to help someone who sounded confused. Possibly because I often am.

carguy84: aleksl, you burn your bras too?

Haha, funny, where did you learn that joke, in high school? It would be Bro then.

Conveniently, I just moved, and had to deside between carrying my tube or opting for a brand-new LCD TV. Tube I gave away, LCD TV technology is too young, I guess I'll wait 6 months.

Now when I go to someone's house, I can't stand watching TV. 2-hour movie that lasts 4 hours? You gotta really like commercials or REALLY have no other life to sustain it. My hour is worth A LOT more that $4 I pay to rent a movie.

Yu-hoo! Another geek show full of ads! What a great idea! DumbAr5es.

aleski, it was a joke, sorry you didn't find the humor in it wasn't meant ot be offensive; besides I couldn't have heard it in high school, I skipped right from womb to webmaster. ;)

RE ads: buy a Tivo - no more ads and that one hour show just became 42 minutes!
