Bing Beginning To Kick Google’s Ass? If Not Now, It’s Coming. Unless…

bing will officially become a major threat to google very soon.  you read it here first, folks. searchers and webmasters have waved the google banner all of their google lives, but google MUST stop treating their good webmasters like crap….or these webmasters will drop them like a safe at the first opportunity.

"oh, how the might have fallen" comes to mind.  the company's been lucky that "google" has become a part of our vernacular as a verb to find information.  but….all it takes is for colbert, letterman, the daily show, etc. to start using "bing it" and the sheep will follow.  so now where are you, google?  a severe decline in users/searches and webmasters who have left you.  how will your advertisers and stock holders feel about that?

you've been in power a long time and it's beginning to show.  unfortunately, in a negative way.

i usually praise google/android's existence, but i think they need a little wake-me-up call.  be good people.  be ethical.  don't be machiavellian. then the people will follow you to the ends of the earth.

A Private & Secure Search Engine Away From Big Brother’s Eyes?

a new, emerging search engine i'm liking…

"People are making major changes in their on-line habits and looking for ways to protect their private information from US government surveillance. Our fans especially appreciate the fact that we are a Dutch company, which means we are not directly subject to the US Patriot Act. And of course, we have never participated in any program like PRISM."

Web Hosting

Many people ask me about web hosting, buying .com domain names, etc.  My suggestion is usually to go to GoDaddy.com because they are very user-friendly for newbies.

Do Not Buy Anything From CoffeeCup.com!

 

Coffee Cup Software

Years ago, this company asked me (and I accepted) to be an "Ambassador" to their company.  Little did I know what a fail that would end up being (fail being their company, not my mad skills).  The owner (or one of them) is a piece of shit bully who, instead of fixing problems, calls people out in public.  I asked that their software work and this piece of shit at coffeecup.com spends OVER a year telling everyone that it's the user not the software (it was the software).  His purpose on the forums seems to serve being a bully, a typical troll and, accordlingly, a piece of shit.  They are someone who will never, never, never admit any wrongdoing.  Ever.

My New Beast (Teaser)

I finally got my new computer today.  It's a beast.  I'll post the sordid details after I set it up, make sure it works, etc. and then post some specs and thoughts on it.  It's an Origin PC (I believe they used to own Alienware before selling that to Dell?).
