“I’m bored… There’s Nothing on the Internet!” The Argument for a Walled Garden

“I’m bored… There’s Nothing on the Internet!” The Argument for a Walled Garden

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The call “There’s nothing on TV” has long been a common phrase in households around the world, but now I’m beginning hear people express disappointment with the quality and availability of good stuff on the Internet.  This has just gotta be absurd, right!?  Well, perhaps not. There can be absolutely no doubting that the Internet is anything but boring.  There are billions of websites out there...

Yahoogle.co.jp!

Just as Microsoft and Yahoo! have joined forces in search, now Yahoo! Japan and Google have linked up too. Yahoo!’s Japanese search engine will now just Google’s technology rather than stick with fellow partner Microsoft and their Bing search engine as reported by NeoWin.

Facebook leads third-party log-ins

Facebook leads third-party log-ins

In the last year or so there’s been an explosion in sites allowing you to use a third-party login to access their services.  Every major company except for Microsoft has so far jumped on the bandwagon but it appears we have an outright and runaway winner already.

La pubblicità entra nelle stampanti grazie ad HP e Yahoo

La pubblicità entra nelle stampanti grazie ad HP e Yahoo

La pubblicità è l'anima del commercio; mai forse come in questo periodo la datata e retorica affermazione è stata veritiera: TV, carta stampata ed ovviamente Internet sottopongono ognuno di noi ad un "bombardamento" che non ha eguali nella storia del genere umano. Gli specialisti del settore, consci del fatto che i canali attualmente disponibili sono ampiamente sfruttati per non dire saturi, sono pertanto alla ricerca di nuove forme di comunicazione...

How To Change The Firefox Address Bar Search Provider

How To Change The Firefox Address Bar Search Provider

The default address bar search engine in the Firefox web browser is Google Search. This means that any search phrase that the user enters directly into the Firefox address bar gets send to Google Search which returns either a direct hit or a search results page. Some Internet users might prefer to have a different search engine as the default in Firefox. This can be done easily in the configuration of Firefox. To do that type about:config in the Firefox address bar. First time users need...

From Facebook to Diaspora

From Facebook to Diaspora

Diaspora is a distributed, open source alternative to Facebook that a few NYU graduates want to spend this summer building. They set out to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter, and on the strength of all the backlash against Facebook’s privacy problems, the project has raised over $175,000 as of writing. Good for them. There are a LOT of existing projects doing work in this area (like OneSocialWeb, DiSo, Activity Streams), but I’m ok with a new effort working both together and in...

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

On May 12, 2006, I hacked together my first bash script that was more than a dozen lines and published it on Lifehacker. todo.sh manipulated a todo.txt file at the command line using grep, tail, head, sort, and cat: all the shell-based text tools that I knew and loved. Back then, in Lifehacker’s heyday, I was obsessed with the simplicity and portability of text files, mostly because Danny O’Brien featured them front and center in his original life hacks talk. Since then, Todo.txt...

Apostrophe.me Explains When You Really Need Apostrophes [Writing]

Apostrophes are both over- and under-utilized in the English language. A light-hearted but factual illustration at apostrophe.me makes flowchart-style sense of when to bust out the vertically flipped comma. Update: Apologies for the duplicate post. From the cracked but clever mind of Matthew Inman and his site The Oatmeal, “How to Use an Apostrophe” is worth bookmarking, printing, or just remembering as a Google phrase (it currently ranks as the top result for, well, “How...

Get It Wrong Before You Google to Learn It Better [Study Hacks]

We live in an era where the answer to almost any fact-based question is no further than a Google search away, but Scientific American highlights a study suggesting subjects forced to get something wrong before being told the answer learn it better. Photo by John Althouse Cohen. In many ways the results don’t seem terribly surprising—everyone’s had that one fact they remember better than all the rest because it was the one they kept getting wrong. But it also flies in...

Prevent Google, Bing, and Yahoo from Tracking Your Clicks [Privacy]

Prevent Google, Bing, and Yahoo from Tracking Your Clicks [Privacy]

Every time you click results in Google, Yahoo, or Bing, a special URL tracks your click—and makes it annoying to copy and paste. The CyberNet blog runs down click-track-preventing tools for all three search engines. On the Google side, CyberNet recommends a familiar Greasemonkey Script and extension, both of which we’ve covered before. CyberNet’s post goes the extra mile, though, in covering tools that remove click tracking and block HTTP referral sniffing on Yahoo, Bing,...

Firefox Blocking Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo Extensions

Firefox Blocking Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo Extensions

Got a surprising alert yesterday telling me two of the extensions I had installed on my PC’s copy of Firefox have been blocked because they cause stability or security problems. (Click to enlarge the dialog on the right.) Specifically, the Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant and Windows Presentation Foundation extensions were the problem children that got kicked off the island. (In my defense, I didn’t install these extensions myself–Windows Update did). My first reaction...
