Google Dictating Nofollow For ALL Links From Compensated Content
From Andy Beard:
This really is looking less and less about the quality of search results, and more about the failings of Google’s algorithms.
Andy has a good article here, calling doubt around how far GOOG is willing to go in determining what’s considered compensated content.
Wow, AOL purchased Netscape for 4+ billion dollars 7 years ago and it’s browser dev team has been reduced to skinning Firefox to *look* like Navigator today?
From the Netscap blog – AOL Says Goodbye to Netscape Navigator, Feb 1 2008 will be the end.

Calling all geeks! Here is the second best USB device you can ever get for yourself – A fantastic USB powered device that you can set your drinks on, and with the flip of a rocker switch, you can heat up your tea or coffee, OR you can chill your soda or monster drinks frosty cold! It’s a great little device that takes up very little space, and will keep you happy in your times of need My only complaint, though very minor, is that the circular plate used to heat and chill is too small to set most of my coffee cups on. An industrious person could manufacture a small metal riser plate to set a larger coffee cup or soda can on. Who knows? I might do that myself Check the specs below -
Compatible with USB 2.0/1.1/1.0
Black durable ABS plastic
Stainless steel heating pad
Beverage cup cooler and warmer
Cooler or warmer function switch
No external power source required
Warmer – 10 minutes 13°C rise.
Cooler – 10 minutes 7°C decrease.
120cm cable length (approximate)
Heating pad diameter : 65mm
Dimensions: 14.4 x 8.5 x 3.2cm
Oh – if you were wondering what the “best” USB device is in my opinion, read back a couple of days for my review on another USB gift I received this year! Comments!
I have a couple of Magic 8 Balls at work.
But since I’m a manager and sometimes need to deal with issues not related to technology from time to time (like all manner of personal problems employees have at home or personality conflicts with other employees), I’m thinking one of these Dr. Freud Therapy Balls may come in handy in those 1:1 sessions.
It provides twenty different responses such as "How did that make you feel?" and "Talk about your mother."
Hmm, on second thought, there may be some questions there that are best left unasked
Animator vs. Animation by Alan Becker on deviantART.
An animator faces his own animation in deadly combat in this Flash video. The battlefield? The Flash interface itself.
A stick figure is created by an animator with the intent to torture. The stick figure drawn by the animator will be using everything he can find – the brush tool, the eraser tool – to get back at his tormentor. It’s resourcefulness versus power. Who will win?
