Google Flips Faster

September 15, 2009 Leave a comment

Google has just introduced a new Labs feature: Fast Flip. Basically, it lets you flip from page to page of  Google News, kinda like how you would with a real newspaper. It only contains a few news sources, though hopefully the number will grow; it’s a pretty interesting experiment that, like Google Squared, is worthy of it’s own place in Google Apps.

Find it here.

Google Search 2.0 Extra

August 18, 2009 Leave a comment

Just my two cents about Da Mad Dok’s post on Google Search 2.0.  There is a website that allows you to compare the normal Google and the Caffeinated Google.

Google Search 2.0

August 11, 2009 Leave a comment

If you go to www2.sandbox.google.com, you will find a Google Search. This, however, is more or less Google Search 2.0. In a series of tests in this article by Mashable, they proved that this new Google may be an actual threat to Bing. It found twice as many results in half the time for the simple inquiry of “dog”. They also found it cared more about the actual words in a sentence.

JellyCar… I Love JellyCar

July 10, 2009 Leave a comment

I love my iPhone. I’m typing this from the iPhone, in fact. But more to the point, I’d like to bring up one of my favorite apps so far: JellyCar. Cheapskate PC gamers may recognize it; it was a semi-popular (free) game that was called JelloCar. It’s actually quite a fun game, and if you can find I recommend downloading it. But anyways, back to JellyCar for iPhone. It plays quite simply; touch the left side of the screen to move left, and touch the right side to move right. You can also tilt either way to actually tilt your car in-game, thanks to the accelerometer. One word of advice, however; it requires a Wi-Fi connection or a connection to iTunes because it’s over a megabyte.

An iPhone and a Tech Blogger Walk Into A Store…

If you couldn’t tell by the title (I didn’t expect anyone to), I’ve fianlly got my hands on an iPhone. Well, a bit early thanks to the fact that the 3Gs were very limited and… well anyways, I’ve finally gotten one, and so might start a series about them soon. Da Mad Dok out.

Mac Monday: Edition 1

In today’s Mac Monday we will take a look at the Dock.  This is one of my favorite features of Mac OS X.  For those of you who don’t know, the Dock is essentially a little box on the edge of your screen that has all of your applications (you can pick which ones you want to appear in it).  To open one, all you have to do is click on its icon.  I like this much better than having all of your applications on the desktop or buried in some folder because it means less time spent opening things, and more time doing things [translation: more organized].  If you are worried about the Dock taking up precious screen space, don’t fret!  You can hide the Dock so it will only appear when you put your cursor on the edge of the screen.  Let’s see what Da_Mad_Dok has to say to that… on Windows Wednesday!

Edit: Looks like the Mac Monday/Windows Wednesday series has been stranded… at least for now.

Land of Moron

For a website that has mostly stupidly funny cartoons, why not head to landofmoron.com?  The man behind it all, Steven Askew, takes pictures of himself and Photoshops them to make them anywhere from slightly humorous to absolutely hilarious.
