This newsletter will have the looks of a blog.... hmmmm... does this mean I should make this a blog or just a blog post?) but instead it will have some of the hottest debated topics on JoeUser (whether it be a blog or in the forums... but mostly it will be blogs).

I thought of this while reading some of the things that go on here at JoeUser. There are so many interesting blogs and the forums are very active indeed.

I think this is something worth developing. I think I might even do a backg...

OK, I read the story on and the commenters so far are ripping the toolbar as redundant.

Firstly I would like to say that I currently can't find a way to search for multiple words on ONE page at a time. The toobar does that.

If you have a user page on yahoo, now you can assess it and its subpages from the toolbar, you can add favorites and save them on-line, check you email, add buttons that are yahoo specific...

in other words. there are uses. instead of saying that FireFo...

Now the 50-year-old Seemayer is once again on the cutting edge: Sick of spam clogging his...

I have read only a few articles on it, but the numbers seem astonishing. 1/3 of all internet traffic is BitTorrent users?

I am just wondering how people feel about this program. Is it the same as the other peer to peer programs using the internet to download stuff?

Do you guys ever think Cable channels or movie distibutors like NetFlix will ise something like BitTorrent to let people see movies or TV shows? What about the infristruction that was built to show all these movies through cabl...

Shifting Places
Elizabeth Corcoran, 09.06.04

Sitting in a Starbucks in San Mateo, Calif., Blake Krikorian performs an Internet magic trick. He fires up an iPAQ handheld and, with a few clicks on a menu, pulls up live television. The screen is small, but the Fox channel's Judge Hatchett is smooth; no delays, no frozen frames. Krikorian switches to his laptop, and moments later Clifford the Big Red Dog is nosing around at a birthday party, courtesy of PBS. He then...

Before going into the linked article, I have seen these Google challengers before. Some of them have nice search engine results. For example, Mooter has a site that uses clustering or topics.

When i search for classic model cars, Mooter gives me this page that shows clusters of different topics. Car parts, racing, die cast, blue book and even maps. The cluster I would have picked is die cast but I could have (or another user) picked car parts or racing or went a totally different ...
