Yahoo! launches Alpha search engine

April 9, 2007 Leave a comment

Yahoo! AlphaTaking a page from Google’s Searchmash experiment, the Yahoo Alpha search engine provides neatly organized results from the web, Flickr, Yahoo Answers and other sources.

Specifically, Alpha generates a dynamic search-results page with modules that can expand or collapse. A search for soul goddess Amy Winehouse, for instance, produced the usual web-search results in the central module, with modules for Flickr, Yahoo Answers, YouTube, News, and Wikipedia alongside it. (Yahoo even relegates sponsored results to its own module–nice). Within any given module, clicking Next reveals the next batch of results without actually jumping to another page.

It would be great if you could rearrange the modules in order of desired priority, or specify which modules to include, though I have to imagine those features are on the drawing board. You see, Alpha is–wait for it–currently in beta. And it has the slow, buggy performance to prove it. But see if you don’t come away thinking this is the way search engines oughta be.

The 7 hidden pages within your Firefox browser

April 7, 2007 Leave a comment

Firefoxabout: A simple prompt without any parameter will display the Mozilla “about” information. Since it’s accessible from the top menus as well, it’s not quite a hidden feature.

about:buildconfig Obviously, it will show the build platform configuration and parameters

about:cache Will display info and statistics regarding your disk’s cache, including the name of your cache’s directory and a list of the entries you can find there. By default, Firefox doesn’t allow you to view the cached webpages, so this can be an useful option.

about:config Oh look, many many info. Indeed, it’s the most complex and meaningful of them all. Careful on what you plan to change here, your browser won’t run properly after if you play with the wrong things.

about:plugins Of course, what is Firefox without it’s powerful extensions? This option will display detailed information about all the plugins installed for Mozilla Firefox.

about:credits It’s time to give the credit to whoever deserves it. There’s an alphabetically sorted list of all the people that gave their contribution to the development of Firefox.

about:Mozilla This is a weird thing. It will display the so-called “Book of Mozilla”. Something similar was present in Netscape too. There’s actually no real book although the quotations might give you that impression.

US ‘no longer technology king’

April 7, 2007 Leave a comment

The US has lost its position as the world’s primary engine of technology innovation, according to a report by the World Economic Forum. Singapore was among the nations ranked higher than the US. The US is now ranked seventh in the body’s league table measuring the impact of technology on the development of nations.

A deterioration of the political and regulatory environment in the US prompted the fall, the report said. The top spot went for the first time to Denmark, followed by Sweden.

Countries were judged on the integration of technology in business, the infrastructure available, government policy favourable for fostering a culture of innovation and progress and leadership in promoting the usage of the latest information technology tools.
