AOL looks to its parent to outwit Google | CNET News.com

AOL looks to its parent to outwit Google | CNET News.com: "Unlike competitors that are investing heavily in new search technologies, AOL is instead focusing on providing Web surfers with quick access to news and entertainment while navigating the Web.

The Internet company will make several enhancements to its Internet search service this week. Those include introducing a new feature called 'Snapshots'--categories of popular information, such as movie times, news and sports scores, which will appear in the body of related search results. The content is drawn from AOL and its parent company's vast media assets. It includes 2.2 million 'widgets,' or categories of information."

POLL!! What will google think of next??? - MozillaZine Forums

POLL!! What will google think of next??? - MozillaZine Forums: "I think more search improvements:

It would be nice if they removed the OS related results searching for Windows. Because the word windows is not a product name. There people trying to sell real windows on the web and things related to construction, it's silly how you cant find their site in google.


1. An opening constructed in a wall or roof that functions to admit light or air to an enclosure and is often framed and spanned with glass mounted to permit opening and closing.
2. A framework enclosing a pane of glass for such an opening; a sash.
3. A pane of glass or similar material enclosed in such a framework.
1. An opening that resembles a window in function or appearance.
2. The transparent panel on a window envelope.

I don't see any Microsoft here, do you?

media center

Media center may be a Microsoft product , if I'm searching for media I should find tv channels and newspapers, sorted by the size of the media, not the hype of it.

the media (NEWSPAPERS) group noun [S]
newspapers, magazines, radio and television considered as a group:
the local/national media
media attention/coverage/hype/reports
The issue has been much discussed in the media.
See also multimedia.

Results should relate more to the meaning of words then the name of things."

I can't believe they snubbed the WebDeveloper extension, which is #1 in my opinion! Man, I used to respect that magazine.
