YHOO Ranks Me # 1 and Google Ranks Vertigo 2

Her are the rankings. Most can not deny that they have not googl'd and/or yahoo'd themselves. I made first return.

Vertigo only made #2. This just means room for growth and that Vertigo has not topped out.

Desktop2.0 and Webtalk

You need a Gmail Account to sign up for Google Talk, a service which allows you to talk through the Internet. It seems to be a potential competitor for skype. You can use your mobile phone to get a Gmail if your friends haven't invited you already.

Google also released the 2nd generation of desktop search called Desktop2.0

You can read all about these updates on the Google Blog.(Are you really surprised they have one)

But I think I might have stumbled across some better freeware/adware)

Diggs Competes with Del.icio.us

I was reading Jake Jarvis's blog when I stumbled on his digs. Could this be a competitor for del.icio.us. Who knows? I wonder who else is doing social bookmarking and I wonder which one people think is better.

Read About Bad People Doing Bad Things

There is a site called Crime Magazine which is listed as one of my friend Nicky's favorite sites (You should stop by she has some fun stuff there). Seems like a fun place to do due diligence. Though I don't think I will ever need it to do any research. I also don't think I have a stomach for some of the stuff content on there. But its seems like a cool way to stay on top of controversial cases for anyone interested in Law. They also cover celebrity crimes. Who doesn't these days.

Skype Me - Stay in Touch With Loved Ones Abroad

Skype is a way to use your high speed connection and a headset to Skype_phonemake free calls across the Internet. I downloaded the software, but apparently its very easy to use, so for anyone abroad I would consider trying to exploit this technology. It can save you tons of money and keep you in contact with old buds. You can get lots of cool accessories to use the service, even a cordless phone that doubles as a land line phone.

My Space Music

I am just learning about this site my space which lets musicians host a site for free, lists tours, and it even hosts up to four songs on the web. Apparently, this is how Nirvana got started. The Black eyed peas have a page here. System of a Down has a page here with songs that leaves you begging for more. NIN has a page. Its a great tool for upcoming artists.

On the Peas....

First, I have to say I love the peas about as much as I love outkast. Second, a funny story. I was speaking with a family friend who retired from working at GE doing R&D for medical devices this past weekend. Needless to say, I was reading an article about My Space in Business week, and how it was a site that got favorites such as the Smashing Pumpkins and The Black Eyed peas started. To which she replied what are those recipes. Too funny.

The A, B & C List - Blogebrity

Finally a quick list of who's who in the Blogosphere. Although you should take the list with a grain of salt. I can't believe those that got bumped to the B list, but everyone can't get A's I suppose. You gotta love the black background with pink text. It makes for a very snazzy page. This is a great resource for finding other interesting blogs which you might then subscribe to. My only complaint, no summary of what the blogs are geared towards. Ohh well I guess you can't have everything.

There are just so many bloggers that do it right:

Brad Feld - Feld Thoughts
Dave Winer - Scripting News
Fred Wilson - AVC
Jeff Jarvis - Buzz Machine
Matt Blumberg - Only Once
Mike Scoble - Scobleizer
Seth Godin - Self Titled
Steve Rubel - MicroPersuasion
Tim Oren - Due Diligence

More Blog Tools - Syndicate Your Calendar with Upcoming Events

Upcoming is a social event calendar. You set up the upcoming events that you are attending and you syndicate that to your site. So everyone can find out what you are up to while you can keep track of events right on your blog.

Here is an example of a blogger, Mingjungkim, who syndicates upcoming events The upcoming syndicate is all the way on the bottom right under the et cetera box. Keep scrolling down and you will see it. This is a nifty tool. I wonder if it is easy to simply import your schedule right from outlook. It seems silly to have to enter data in multiple places.
