Search is about helping people find the right answers to their questions when and where they need them. We work hard every day to figure out the most useful results for our users, and we’re working to create new and better ways to answer your questions. We know that if we don’t give users the best results, people can and will switch to another search engine.

I’ve been splitting time with Google and Bing recently. The Bing Rewards are nice but really Google always gives me the smartest and best results. This is a followup from Google regarding the Google Product Search changes from last week.

I’m NYC artist John McGregor but you can call me Brother Brain. I make these pixel animations from old school video games. New content everyday. Enjoy!

This is using the data from the compromised passwords from Linkedin. #8 and 13 are without question the best ones. People are awesome.

The Curious Case of Internet Privacy

Why do we seem to value privacy so little? In part, it’s because we are told to. Facebook has more than once overridden its users’ privacy preferences, replacing them with new default settings.

Nothing is free and privacy on the net feels like it’s only going to get worse. Also, this article contains a picture of the author’s study that is rather cool. The shelves are badass.
