Official Google Blog: An update on Google Video feedback

Official Google Blog: An update on Google Video feedback
Very good choice on Google's end! :) No, I've never purchased any Google Videos, but I've heard the cries/whines in the blogosphere of people complaining...and the reason why DRM-restrictions suck. But yea, this is a good move on Google's part.

Official Google Blog: Some homepage revisions

Official Google Blog: Some homepage revisions - overall, I like the idea..but I don't like how the search types (News, Video, Images) has been "split"...

Now, the competitors have links to their other "services" across the top navbar, I wouldn't group Images, Web, News, Video, etc. in with "services"...those are merely alternative search areas.

But I'll go on a whim and make a suggestion...I like the new "Universal search" Google is attempting...why not just make the "default" search for "Web" and remove the Video, News, Images, etc search links from the Google Homepage as a whole...because the users will get their content either way on the other end (at the results page). OR, put the tabs/options for News, Images, Video, etc. on the results page, to sort the results between Video,News, Images, etc...but the whole deal with moving Web, Images, Video to the upper-right corner just doesn't "fit" currently..."Products" (or services, I should say) are being grouped with other elements within the "Search" service.

Official Google Blog: Oh, the places you'll go....

Official Google Blog: Oh, the places you'll go....
Appears that Google is now competing with RockYou, Imageshack, and Photobucket, with their latest release of "flash"-y image slideshows :) I like how they are so much "cleaner" than the competitors, but Google has always been good at that.

iTWire - Google’s ‘universal search’ – the logical next step

iTWire - Google’s ‘universal search’ – the logical next step
I've been wanting this for a while....the ability to search across ALL platforms of Google, from within one search box is awesome. It makes searching soooo much easier...will this include Google Docs, and bookmarks? Who knows, but I'll be waiting! It's the next best step for global search.

Money News:- Good Old Antennas Pick Up Free HDTV - AOL Money & Finance

Money News:- Good Old Antennas Pick Up Free HDTV - AOL Money & Finance: According an an article I read on AOL News, HDTV can actually be captured from good-old "rabbit ear" antenna's...kinda funny, since people are payin' big bucks to DirectTV and other various "cable" operators to get this new "High Definition" technology.

According to the article, this over-the-air HD is actually _better_ quality than what the cable and satellite companies offer, since they (the sat/cbl companies) compress the HD data, so they can send out more signals to a wider audience through the same pipes.

AntennaWeb.Org has an article on these "HD-capable" rabbit ears :)

Main Page - Lyriki

Lyriki - The Lyrics Wiki
If you are into song lyrics this site is really cool. Unlike most lyric sites on the Internet, there are NO advertisements, popups, trackers, or bullshit. It's straight up lyrics. The one thing I love about the site, is the fact that it's a wiki...allowing ANYONE (well, except those viagra spammers, and wiki-vandals...) to add, change, or otherwise modify the artist, album, track pages, and lyrics within the site.

At this point in time, there are more than 24,000 song pages in Lyriki...the site also contains a brief biography and discography listing for each artist.

As of this blog post and according to Google there are 47,900 Lyriki pages in the Google index and 39 sites that link to Lyriki.
