Submission + - Next Generation of source code search engines

calumtdalek writes: The source code search engine market has seen quite a few developments in the recent past, with google launching its own source code search engine recently.

According to the faq, it "considers the relation between code" rather than the traditional single project view used by its predecessors like koders & google codesearch. I wonder if this technique will be adopted by the other industry players?

Submission + - NFL won't let church show S*per B*wl

Interestingly, the conclusion seems to be that Google might settle the lawsuits brought against it, and by doing so, make it more difficult for others who want to do similar things. One good quote : "The suits that are filed are a business negotiation that happens to be going on in the courts.""
