Forget Jeeves. For $25 a month, you can soon call a googling "angel" from your mobile phone with questions
. According to the press release (pdf)
: "Soon, with the coming of Ask God, the prayers of all the data-starved will be answered
and the prophecy of information on-demand will be fulfilled." In a country caught in the grips of religious mania, is this smart marketing or tone deaf? And with the web increasingly on our phones already, who's going to pay for this?

Google To Start Selling Banner Adverts
From the that-didn't-take-too-long-department, Google's ad sales VP Tim Armstrong says Google will now start selling graphical banner adverts. One concession to their old mores is that, for now, the banner adverts will only appear on affiliated websites running their AdSense
referral program (as does MeFi), and there is an opt-out. However... "We have no plans to show images on Google.com"
, said Mr. Armstrong "but we are not opposed to it"
