“— Google Caffeine – What Does It Mean To YOU? | PotPieGirls Blog (PotPieGirl.com)
Google Caffeine – What Is It?
First, let’s explain some meaning behind the name “Caffeine”.
Old Google was decaf…. New Google is caffeinated. Old Google = slow with no kick… New Google=fast and kickin’.
Google Caffeine is not an algorithm change… meaning it is not something designed to change HOW Google ranks web pages (ie, ranking factors…ranking signals…). It’s not an optimization thing, for the most part.
Google Caffeine IS a change in the way Google finds and releases web content into the main Google index.
It’s faster… claimed to contain 50% fresher results.
Instead of being a “phased” indexing process… it is now more “real time”.
It’s the difference between waiting on a bus… and saying “Beam me up, Scotty”.
Note: The site to compare old vs new is here.”

What You Pay For — Fifteen years ago — before Google or Wikipedia or blogging or Craigslist or podcasts or YouTube — the technology investor and pundit Esther Dyson wrote an article analyzing the business of “creative content” in a future where the Internet made distribution essentially free.
Patients with Parkinson's disease are suffering delays in diagnosis and being deprived of specialist treatment because of "appalling gaps" in NHS care, a report by MPs and peers says today.

On Twitter there are easy ways to share links, photos, and videos (via bit.ly, Twitpic, YFrog, Flickr, and YouTube), and now there is an easy way to record and share screencasts. The service is called Screenjelly, and it just launched today. It comes from the the team that created ScreenToaster, which was bought by enterprise video provider Veodia last month.
Screenjelly is a browser-based screen sharing app. After allowing a Java applet to run on your computer, you press record and have 3 minutes to show anything on your computer screen, using your built-in microphone to do a voiceover. Once you are done, you can Tweet out a link to your video. Unlike other Web-based screen sharing apps like Webex or Adobe Acrobat, Screenjelly is asynchronous and designed for quick, fast sharing sessions. Even ScreenToaster has a lot more bells and whistles.
I did a Screenjelly video going through some of the open tabs on my browser and a desktop app. It works pretty much as advertised, although I would suggest closing any apps you don’t intend to demo. I kept getting a lag between the audio and the video until I closed down some of my desktop apps.

The pivoting Mimo Mini is a low maintenance solution for some extra screen space on the go, and offers convenience by not requiring a separate power outlet like traditional monitors. The 7” high resolution 800 x 480 pixel display can be used for any number of programs, from a users IM client, to spreadsheets, email or video. Adding to the functionality of the units, they can be used in either landscape or portrait mode...
The main problems with today's battery technology is that, despite gradual advancements in recent years, cells are still too big, heavy and expensive, making them unpractical for the many applications in which weight or price play an essential role. Researchers at the Fraunhofer research facility in Germany, however, have taken a radically different approach towards the building process and have developed an incredibly light, thin and inexpensive battery that could - if such a thing is possible - end up bringing even more electronics into our everyday life. ..
