Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

[Oh, here it is - they’ve just gone live.]

Boy, the amount of anti-Huffington Post chatter in Bay Area media circles seems to have increased lately, you noticed that?

Mmmm, perhaps it’s due to the imminent launch of the well-financed Huffington Post San Francisco website?

Could be.

Let’s meet the crew at ground control down in the FiDi/Union Square area.

The Winklevii Surrender: But the Way Things are Going with Facebook, the Winklevoss Twins Might Be Better Off

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

‘Cause you know, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss got an early cash out, more or less, from the Facebook, right? So, now that they’ve just given up on their lawsuit against Mark Elliot Zuckerberg, they don’t need to worry about FB (our current Flavor of the Month) going the way of AOL (the Internet’s former Flavor of the Month).

Hurray!

Have you “Bing-ed” Yourself Yet? A New Search Engine from Microsoft

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

I can tell you right now that Bing, the new search engine from Microsoft, is “something of a hit” because it’s been bringing a few folks to this website the past few days. Especially folks from San Francisco City Hall – you can tell when they drop by, as they leave the following footprint:

www.SFGov.org CCSF San Francisco Department of Telecommunications and Information Services”

And what are they Binging today? Here’s something they’re interested in (it’s Jimbo Lazarus, for some odd reason) below.

Hey, why don’t you go Bing Yourself right now, just type your name and city in to see what the Internet thinks about you? (Actually, your results from Bing will probably look a lot like your results from Google, so why would people want to switch to Bing? Not exactly sure.)

bing

Bing! Fighting Google, One Day At A Time.

Oh, what a second, here’s a good reason to use Bing – you can watch porn without leaving the search engine. You see, Bing “puts porn in motion.” How about that? So, just turn “safe search” off and then use the search term “porn” in the video section. You’ll get these thumbnails that start right up as soon as your mouse hovers over them. Thusly:

puppies

Well, I searched for adorable puppies instead, but you get the idea. (NB: Don’t use Bing to look at porn at work.) 

As they say:

“But It’s Not Google.”

I’ll stick with the Googleplex mothership for now, but you, you go right ahead and Bing away.

Why not?
