Google Announces Global Campaign To Legalize Love & LGBT workers

Google has announced a global campaign in support of equal marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples.

The Internet giant announced its Legalize Love campaign at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit 2012, which took place in London.

The campaign launches Saturday, July 7 in Poland and Singapore. Organizers plan to expand the campaign to every country where Google has an office, focusing on countries where anti-gay sentiment runs high.

“We want our employees who are gay or lesbian or transgender to have the same experience outside the office as they do in the office,” Google’s Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe is quoted by dot429.com as saying at the summit. “It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work.”

“Singapore wants to be a global financial center and world leader and we can push them on the fact that being a global center and a world leader means you have to treat all people the same, irrespective of their sexual orientation,” Palmer-Edgecumbe said of the decision to include Singapore in the campaign’s initial phase.

During the Wimbledon finals today, Twitter discovered Kim Sears, Andy Murray’s girlfriend. And with that, they also lost all of their sympathy for the defeated Brit.

This is Kim Sears, an English Lit grad, painter, and Andy Murray’s girlfriend of half a decade.

During today’s Wimbledon final, Twitter discovered Sears in a big way. Mixed among the usual lewd considerations of beautiful women that Twitter tends to produce, there was another common theme: with a girlfriend like this, Andy Murray doesn’t have the right to be sad, even though he just lost his fourth major final and missed his chance to become the first British Wimbledon champion since 1936.

Divine intervention: Google’s Nexus 7 is a fantastic $200 tablet

Google Nexus 7 – courtest Arstechnica.com

The Nexus 7 weighs 11.99 ounces (340 grams), 2.6 ounces lighter than the Kindle Fire. While we found the Kindle Fire just a bit too cumbersome and heavy to hold up in the air while reading, the Nexus 7’s lighter weight and sleeker body means we can successfully hold it up like a book for 20 minutes to half an hour without our arm getting tired. Holding the Nexus 7 by the edge gets tiresome a bit quicker than holding it from the bottom, pinky and thumb propped in front, with the other three fingers supporting it from the back, like you’d hold a paperback open.
