In what is turning into a mess for NBC, Conan O’Brien released a statement saying that if the network moves his show to the 12:05 timeslot, he will leave.

Google is threatening to end its operations in China. The threats stem from cyber attacks late last month that not only affected Google, but many other business and industries. Google believes the attack was set forth to access the email accounts of Chinese activists, and may stop censoring Chinese search results in response to the attacks.

While Google’s service in China may be in question, the search giant’s quest for innovation has not stopped, as the company unveiled a new online storage facility yesterday Google users are now able to upload and store all file types in Google Docs, creating a free online storage system for users. Expected to be available in the coming weeks, users will be able to upload files as big as 250 MB, and will have 1GB of free storage, while additional storage will cost $.25/GB.
