Google Personalized search

It’s about time I started blogging again, it’s been a while. A couple of days ago I realized that Google has made a new offering with it’s search services. Google Personalized Search. And almost instantly I was thinking, this looks familiar and you know why. I blogged about something very similar before a while back when I posted about Windows Live Search Macros. It looks like Google are offering a very similar service to WLSM. I have not tried Google’s yet but will be checking it out soon. I guess Google likes some of Microsoft’s ideas! They even have an ugly looking service similar to Windows Live, have you ever seen the link that says...

Google on paper!

Today while I was looking at some books in Whitcoulls, I came accross the following book and surely it got my attention! I guess it should be an interesting read but I don’t think I would buy it, maybe will look for it in the library. Anyone read it? Does it tell much that tech aware people wouldnt know?

Or is it really not there. Also,...

Google Talk

Nic blogged about googletalk hereyesterday and on the NZ.NET Mailing lists seemed to be surpised no one responded. Well to make him happy! Here’s me posting about it. I just downloaded it now and exploring it at the moment. First impression is,the UI lookstoo simple, compared to MSN Messenger which some people feel is a bit klunky, I think Google Talk is just wayyy to plain. More on Google Talk later when I have a deeper play with it....
