Try Yahoo! Week

Try Yahoo! Week

Was just talking with Nibaq now and he pointed me to an article on NY Times about how Google is the new Microsoft. Well its true, Google IS the new Microsoft and we all hate Microsoft. So, Nibaq came up with the idea of using Yahoo! instead of Google. Sounds simple but when you have been using Google daily for like forever its not easy to swap to Yahoo! overnight. So we decided to have a “Try Yahoo! Week”. Starting Saturday the 27th all the way to Friday the 2nd we will only use Yahoo! for our searches. I already added the Yahoo! engine to FireFox and will start practicing this weekend. Everyone is free to join this activity.

Hello 2.0

psp browser

Finally installed the PSP 2.0 firmware update and I can now browse the internet from my PSP. Cool shit.

Update: So far first impressions of the browser is thats its pretty cool, perfect for checking up on sites from bed before I go to sleep or at the airport while I wait to pick someone up. I haven’t any problems browsing except for 2 websites. 2:48AM’s sidebar didn’t show up on the PSP and Idontlikeyouinthatway.com gave me an out of memory error. Other then that everything worked like a charm. To make my life easier I also create a homepage for the PSP which includes links to all the sites I visit, this way I don’t have to type each one out manually.

Google Account & Gmail

google

A few days ago I noticed that every time I copy pasted a url from my Google search results it added some new google gibrish to the url. So I did a bit of research on this and it turns out google has a new option where it tracks your searches for you. To disable this you need to go to google.com and on the top right hand corner click on Search History and then on Pause. [Link]

Finally, there is a new option in Gmail where you can change your “From:” email address. Click on Settings then Accounts.

Google Talk
Have you google talked yet? I have to say I think this is the worst idea from Google. I personally don’t think they can penetrate the MSN and Yahoo communities. [Link]
