Google Claims They Are Cracking Down On Spam

21 Jan, 2011 - 1 minutes
Google says they are cracking down on spam. That would be nice as their results have not been very good recently. Almost every search has crappy results from the same sites such as ehow and yahoo answers. There’s also the useless sites that want you to jump through hoops to get the answers to your questions and of course the answers are stolen. Google says they’re doing something about it but we’ll see.

What Happened Google?

31 Dec, 2010 - 1 minutes
Google, can you please give me a way to get rid of the stupid and pointless previews for half of the sites that appear as an image on the right side of the page when my mouse hovers over the link. I find them very distracting and also a waste of bandwidth. They are there sometimes and other times they are not. What ever happened to having things simple. That and the good search results are what originally got me to begin using your search engine.

Trying Out Google Chrome

11 Sep, 2008 - 2 minutes
I had read about Google chrome and just had to try it out. I would’ve tried it sooner but I kept forgetting to boot into windows. I always like to try different things. I first tried to use it under wine but that didn’t work out for me. I’ll try again another time. I was disappointed right from the beginning. No menus? No title bar? That really takes away from the usability for me and just isn’t how I prefer things to be.
