Today is Super Bowl XLIV and we actually thought we know all Super Bowl 2010 advertisers by now. Out of nowhere comes a report that search giant Google is running their first Super Bowl commercial at the Super Bowl XLIV.
John Battelle broke the story about the Google Super Bowl ad and shortly after that Google CEO Eric Schmidt tweets: "Can't wait to watch the Superbowl tomorrow. Be sure to watch the ads in the 3rd quarter (someone said "Hell has indeed frozen over.")
According to Battelle's source Google will run an already published Google Ad called Parisian Love. You can watch the romantic Google sequence of Google queries below. This ad is not bad, but I am not sure if it will work during Super Bowl.
In any case the news that Google is airing a Super Bowl commercial has lit up the blogosphere. The $2.5m-$2.8m that Google paid for the ad are probably well spent already.

The Sexiest Halloween Costumes of 2014
Halloween is approaching fast. Usually we feature first our annual Top Costumes for Geeks guide, but we stumbled over a new costume that inspired us to do a sexiest Halloween Costumes Guide first.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
