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.

Bing – You're It!

BingWell, it’s no secret to those who know me that I am not a fan of most of Microsoft’s products (though some cool things are happening with the XBOX 360 if this is its future).  But this week Microsoft launched Bing, a new search engine aimed at finally procuring a serious portion of the search-engine market.

I’ve played around with it a bit, watching its video tutorials (probably the weakest part of the launch, actually), and searching, you know, for things.  I have to admit, it’s pretty cool.  I’ll write more after more testing, and figuring out how it’s going to shake up the online marketing world.  But in the meantime, here’s something that can’t be ignored: Bing has overtaken Yahoo! and holds more of the market than MSN and Windows Live did, combined.  Pretty impressive.

Have you tried it?  What do you think?

A victim of its own hype, Cuil has become the target of a sizeable media backlash, supported by the web everyman, thanks to Youtube comments and blogs galore.

Expectations were so high that it was no wonder that many were disappointed and negative. What happened?

What's in a (Domain) Name?

Nowadays, online shoppers expect companies to invest real time and money into their websites. Businesses must make sure they have covered all the basic features of a trustworthy e-commerce site. To name a few: a good About page, a reliable and easy checkout process, and indications that the company has made efforts to protect customer information.

Yet another important e-commerce aspect is currently increasing in value and scarcity: domain names. Continue reading ‘What's in a (Domain) Name?’
