Google's pretty much aced searching for your latest whim, so now it's turning its efforts to criminals. Working with the Council on Foreign Relations, the internet giant has been exploring ways of using its technology for the greater good. Yahoo reports that Google Ideas will meet with the CFR (and other groups) this week to develop global crime fighting strategies. Other attendees include Juan Pablo Escobar (son of Pablo,) assistant US defense secretary Andrew Weber and the DEA director of counter-terrorism Brian Dodd. Look out for the Google+ most wanted hangouts coming soon.
