Introducing Google TV

Google has teamed up with Sony and Logitech to make your TV smarter with a little thing called Google TV.
Google is once again leveraging their search technology to make it easier to find the TV shows you want to watch, but they are also hoping to serve you little unobtrusive ads in the process, which will hopefully help boost their bottom line. Google has already been selling TV ads, not just web ads, for quite a while through Google AdWords, and this endeavor will boost those ads further.

As a result Google acknowledged they may no longer be able to operate google.cn legally in China, and have informed their 700 staff there that the read more

Dell Catalog 2010

Dell has published their new catalog for 2010, and it’s loaded with a lot of good deals. The mini laptops are priced just right for kids, and adults looking to save. My favorite for laptops is LoJack, which I use for my laptop.
With the introduction of the 64 bit version of Windows 7, desktop computers now come standard with 8 GB of RAM.
This is a great time to buy a new computer, but I’ll be waiting until the new USB 3 ports come out, at least I hope I can wait that long.

Canonical Link Element Helps Clean Up Duplicate Content for Better SEO

Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo have added support for the new Canonical Link element to help identify a link to content on your site where all traffic should land when more than one link exists to the same content.

WordPress 2.9 has now integrated the rel=”canonical” link element, which will display between the “head” tags, read more

Cannot Create New Ad Network Order in Google Ad Manager

Google Ad Manager is a great platform to serve ads, but it has a few bugs that Google still has not addressed. Personally I was able to add New Order, and New Ad Network Order, to create some orders, but then I started seeing the error:

"A company with this name already exists. Choose a unique company name."

This was a new company that I hadn’t used before, yet I kept getting this error after I tried to create a New Ad Nework from the drop-down-menu, which had not happened before. I read more

What is Google Chrome OS

Not long ago Google introduced their Google Chrome web browser, which was much faster than any other browser, and offered all the functionality needed, without the bloat of features rarely used.

The concept with Chrome OS is to get rid of all the bloat and slowness caused by startup functions, and software applications, rarely used, and not needed if all you are using is a read more

Power Defragmenter for Windows 7 and Windows Vista and Windows XP based on Contig

If you’ve noticed your computer getting slower over time you might need to defragment the files and folders on your hard drive. From Windows XP forward a basic defragmenter was included, but it was very poor. Microsoft did include a Windows defragmentation API that could be hooked into to provide better defragmentation.
The reason you might want to defragment your hard drive using something other than the included software would be to defrag files 64 MB and smaller, which are ordinarily read more
