Submission + - Google, meet Uncle Sam

InternetVoting writes: "Looks like Google is trying to increase its stake in government and military operations. At a meeting of about 200 federal contractors, engineers and uniformed military members Google pitched enhanced versions of Google Earth; search engines that can be used internally by agencies; and the new Google Apps. From the article:
"Google has ramped up its sales force in the Washington area in the past year to adapt its technology products to the needs of the military, civilian agencies and the intelligence community. Already, agencies use enhanced versions of Google's 3-D mapping product, Google Earth, to display information for the military on the ground in Iraq and to track airplanes that fight forest fires across the country.""
