Bing takes over Yahoo Search

// July 30th, 2009 // 2 Comments » // Personal

In 2002 yahoo offered to buy google for 3 Billion Dollars, but google thought they might be worth a bit more than that. Less than a year later google stock sky rocketed and the company became worth 147 Billion.

Now Microsoft made a deal with Yahoo. Yahoo will now use Microsoft’s Bing search engine, while yahoo will manage the ad sales. Which means all your search data will belong to Microsoft, so they get to know who is doing what online.

The part that I am afraid of is if they integrate Bing with the Windows Operating System, and use data on your PC to “enhance” your search results. That would be too much power…

Youtube’s new 3D feature!

// July 24th, 2009 // 2 Comments » // Personal

Youtube has added a filter to convert your videos to 3D!! All you need to do is add the following tags to “your” video and voila:
yt3d:enable=true

Your viewers get to choose between different types of glasses. You can get these from Amazon.

Here is an example of a 3D video, I would have embedded the video, but the feature only works on youtube‘s site.

Best Prank Call Ever!!

This guy calls a Chinese restaurant and orders food, then he calls another restaurant and he connects the two lines together.

Lights Out !!

Mirza sent me this video of a guy turning the power off from two buildings. In this video he uses his iPhone to connect to the power controls in those two buildings. Now I don’t know if this is real or not, but I doubt that he edited the video. Though it is possible that he video taped this during a black out then edited these parts in.

This is a video of him raising a bridge to stop traffic, in this video he plays with the highway signs, and in this video he hacks Microsoft in their headquarters.

So, do you think they’re real or fake?
