Should we brace ourselves for another round of tech news headlines with the word "killer" in them? According to Digg founder Kevin Rose, Google is about to launch a social profile service called, aptly, "Google Me." Rose stated on Twitter earlier today that he heard a "huge rumor" from a "very credible source" that Google is about to unveil what is apparently a Facebook competitor, no other details forthcoming.
Update 2:51 a.m PDT: Reader Chris Saad theorizes that "Google Me" is some sort of upgrade to the already existent Google Profiles feature, which might explain why Rick Klau, the developer who built Buzz, was recently tapped to overhaul Google Profiles.
Update 10:00 a.m PDT June 29th: A source close to the matter confirms to SF Weekly that "Google Me" is in fact real.
