In December 2008 a US court ordered Google to remove a long list of sites selling term papers from its search listings.

Although this may seem like a good thing on the surface, lots of universities use Google to check submitted papers for plagiarism. If the sites have been removed from Google, the plagiarism checks will not work any more.

From Steven Musil at cnet news:

Google late Thursday unveiled a new Gmail Labs feature that allows users to have more than one inbox in their default Gmail view.

The new feature–called Multiple Inboxes–allows users to have multiple viewing panes open simultaneously without having to open another browser window. The upgrade gives users a quick view at important labels as well as saved searches.
