New Google Tool

Hey all,

I originally wanted to post this early this month, but with my blog crashing and everything, never had a  chance to. Now I can, so here it is.

Ever wanted to see if you were getting what you paid for when it came to your ISP? Well, Google is working on a tool that will do just that. Now you can see if your ISP is throttling your internet or not. The project is called M-Lab, and withing a few clicks, all this information will be at your fingertips.

Here is a link to the article I found on it: http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9126997

Google/Yahoo Search Deal called off

In order you keep you guys up to date on what is happening in the tech world, here is the first of my daily tech postings. Let me know if this is content you would like to see, or let me know which tech topics pique your interest.

Did you know that Google and Yahoo were planning on launching a search engine deal? Yahoo would have had Google search results appear alongside Yahoo’s search results if everything went as planned. It was shortly called off before the Dept. of Justice was able to file an antitrust complaint.
