Sending Automated Requests? Thanks Google Instant Search

So if every time I type a letter into the Google search box it brings up a search. And each additional letter brings up a new search… what’s telling Google the difference between my normal search behavior and automated search result requests coming from a program or computer?

Apparently nothing…

Quick Godin / iPhone4 Update –

Just wanted to make 2 quick comments… inspired by Seth Godin and the iPhone4…

  1. I love the way Seth Godin thinks. “What have you shipped today?” Just the right amount of kick-in-the-butt to make you go do something… or ship something…
  2. The iPhone4 has me drooling. But is it just shiney-new effect? Or is it actually impressive. The more time that goes by after seeing those first couple videos on it, the more I lean towards believing it is the latter. Don’t get me wrong, there are some cool new features. But it’s definitely not gonna change the mobile world quite as drastically as Apple claims it will.

Thanks to the 2-4 people that keep randomly landing on my blog. I haven’t really found my voice yet. But I’m working on it. Maybe someday, this will contain some useful and or entertaining content about SEO.

Android On Roids Next Year

Ok, so there wasn’t a line of eager people around the block at your local Verizon store waiting for the launch of the Droid. But thats ok. Sometimes the things that make the biggest waves don’t start that way (and sometimes the things that start by making a big wave, fizzle out – example: myspace).

It’s been said that it is too late for anyone to catch up with the iPhone’s impressive 100,000+ app offering. It’s been said that Android is at risk of splintering into several less impressive versions of itself.

But the truth is Continue reading “Android On Roids Next Year”

Sources say that Verizon has officially passed on the new supposed iPhone Killer – the Palm Pre – much to the surprise of a large number of people. Various reasons have been theorized by TC’s Devin Coldewey including: Continue reading “Palm’s Hopes of an iPhone Killer: Killed.”

Apple’s 3 Muskateers Soon to be 2?

What’s the difference between 626%, 130%, and 7%?  For Apple, it means the traditional iPod line isn’t quite measuring up. MG Siegler writes on TechCrunch that he believes “the iPod, as we know it, is dying.” In my opinion, even though sales growth hasn’t increased by as much, iPods are still selling.  Maybe, instead of planning their end, Apple should find a way to make it their “economy car” model. Putting a cool gadget within reach of millions around the world who would love to own a fancy Apple product but can’t afford something running several hundred dollars. Even with Apple’s huge focus on $$$, this would still nab a chunk of the gadget market. Continue reading “Apple’s 3 Muskateers Soon to be 2?”
