Google search: Supersized!

Google search old vs new

It’s not your imagination, there IS something different about Google.com!

It actually took me two days to notice that the face of Google Search was different; I blame that on my browser’s super-convenient Google search bar, personally. In any case, it’s a subtle shift, but one that draws the eye. The buttons, the search box, and the suggestions text are all bigger, supposedly to make Googling even easier than before. And what does Google have to say about the change?

Google has always been first and foremost about search, and we’re committed to building and powering the best search on the web — now available through a supersized search box.

Hiring the Internet goes Mobile

iphone_screenshotSome of our particularly sharp-eyed readers may have noticed that we’ve just upgraded our blog.  After years of being hosted as part of the WordPress.com community of blogs, we’ve decided to make the move to the freedom afforded by self-hosting. Our main reason for making the switch is so that we can make use of some of the vast number of WordPress extensions to add extra features to this site.

For instance: this blog is now available in a slick format that’s optimized for mobile devices, courtesy of the sexy WPTouch plugin. Just visit hiringtheinternet.com on your iPhone, Ipod or Android phone to check it out.

Coffee Break: Google, Google, Gmail, Bing Vs. Google, Blogs on Paper, and Michael Jackson doesn't crash the Internet

Morning coffee mugI’ve got six goodies for you today.  Google just announced a new operating system based on their recently released web browser, Chrome.  Is it a threat to Windows? They also recently removed a little word that’s been hanging around your Gmail screen since you joined the tens of millions of users of that popular email service: “Beta”

Just to transition away from a heavy Google news day, we’ve also got a review of Microsoft’s new search engine, Bing, which was launched about a month ago, and how it compares to Google.  David Pogue seems to be quite smitten, but the numbers aren’t in Microsoft’s favor.  Since launch, Bing has been hovering at around 3% market share, while Google is still at around 89% (source: StatCounter).  But just because it’s the little guy doesn’t mean it’s not great.

Litmus Puts Its 'Fingerprint' on E-mail Client Stats

fingerprint1Whoa! Color us impressed.

A new service from Litmus’ Fingerprint e-mail analysis system offers accurate, up-to-date statistics on e-mail client usage.

Until now, the Internet marketing industry had to rely solely on suspicion when it came to who was using what e-mail client, leaving us to test our e-mails blindly. Even then it was anybody’s guess how it’d turn out on the other end if recipients were using an e-mail client not on our radar. At the very least, the process made us feel better.

This new service, however – well, it can tell you exactly what e-mail clients your customers are using. By embedding a single line of HTML code in your e-mail newsletter template, Fingerprint will deliver near-real-time statistics with its patent pending technology.

Your head is spinning, right? Ours, too.
