Protesting SOPA and PIPA

By now you've probably already seen lots of major sites (Google, Wikipedia, Wordpress, Reddit, etc.) make significant changes or shutdown altogether to protest SOPA and PIPA for a day. Reddit has a great explanation of what all this web censorship really means for users, websites, and search engines...



Internet to be taken down

The bill to take down the internet passed today, resulting in the announcement that the internet will be taken down next week. The reasons cited for the bill include confusion over whether it was making people more or less productive, annoyance with popup ads, and literally everyone and their mom owning...



Pakistan (accidentally?) takes down YouTube

Yesterday, YouTube was completely inaccessible for a while, causing users to be unable to reach the homepage and blogs with YouTube videos embedded to load slowly. The cause of the mess? Pakistan decided to block YouTube because they either had cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammad, or had an anti-Islam...



75 million people with slow/no internet because of a ship

A ship forced to drop anchor off the coast of Egypt because of bad weather ended up accidentally cutting two undersea cables that provide internet capacity for 75% of Asia. The accident is proving troublesome because it takes a while to send repair ships to the site and make the repair, and the resulting...



Terrible new YouTube feature with terrible reviews [Update]

dave submitted a link to YouTube's blog post about a new related videos feature that's making waves, and not in a good way. The feature adds a related video bar to the bottom of videos, but the thing shows up while the video is playing! There's a ton of negative comments on the blog post of people annoyed...



Whip your Firefox windows into shape

I clicked on the comments section of a blog recently, and it popped a new, smaller window to display the comments. The problem with that was clicking on links resulted in opening new tabs in the mini window, which was annoying. I have a widescreen monitor so I don't leave my browser maximised. I have...



Adobe taking Photoshop online

Apparently Adobe is currently planning to release Adobe Photoshop online, with a free version that will be pretty basic. They're planning to release it in about 6 months. The online service is part of a larger move to introduce ad-supported online services to complement its existing products and broaden...



IMDb updates their interface

IMDb semi-recently revamped their main page, but now they've also redesigned their title pages. It's not a drastic change, but fixes quite a few eyesores from their original design. The new navigation no longer has a ridiculous color scheme, and the links are no longer underlined, amongst many other...



Amazon and Tivo partner to offer downloadable video

Hot on the heels of yesterday's Walmart news of a downloadable video service, Amazon and Tivo announce that they are partnering to make it easy to play Amazon's Unbox downloadable content on your TV through a Tivo box. The two companies announced a test version of the new service, called Unbox on...



Wal-mart debuts video downloads for movies

Wal-mart beat Apple to the internet movie download punch today as it unveiled a beta service that lets you purchase TV shows and movies online through their website. Apple does not yet have all of the movie studios onboard for their downloads through the iTunes store, and those may not be full resolution...



The YouTube Super Bowl Commercial Wrap Up

Yep, you read correctly. YouTube is going to do a Superbowl Commercial Wrap Up, meaning they are going to have all of the Super Bowl commercials on their website and allow people to rate them. We are hosting every single commercial appearing in the Super Bowl on YouTube. You can watch them, share...



Amazon launches a grocery store (beta)!

Yep, looks like there's now an Amazon grocery store where you can buy all sorts of non-perishable items. It's a very cool idea since it could potentially provide a wider selection than what's available at your local grocery store, and hopefully it's cheap. At a quick glance, it appears as though many...



The internet video battle

For the second time, some videos I embedded from YouTube got taken down. YouTube may not have had a choice in both cases, but they could do a better job of inidicating a video is taken down rather than indefinitely displaying "Loading..." on the embedded player. The first time the video was the now...



Ya-who?

Yahoo's taken a bold step...they're overhauling their infamously bloated front page, and some people are getting a peek at it. At first glance there aren't major feature changes, but the whole thing just looks a lot cleaner. It's about time! Click to enlarge



Windows Live Search goes live

dave submitted a link to a CNN article about Microsoft debuting its new Windows Live Search today. Check it out here at live.com. In its latest bid to catch up with rivals Google Inc. and Yahoo Inc., Microsoft Corp. is launching a revamped Internet search engine it says will help computer users find...



Track your shipments on a google map

There's a great site called Package Mapper that lets you enter your FedEx, UPS, or USPS tracking number, and then shows you where the package is on a Google Map, with markers for each place it stopped. As if tracking packages weren't fun enough already! And if you think that last statement was sarcastic,...



New AIM Triton is out

AOL recently made available their new version of AIM, called AIM Triton, as a beta test product (ver 0.8.8). It has a much different look than the AIM you're used to. The notable changes: A merging of IM, EMail, Voice Chat, Text Messaging, and Video Chat Chat window has tabs for conversations (like...
