Google adding a +1 button to search results

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2011

+1 is making its way into Google search results. This means that soon you will be able to “rate” links or ads you find useful and this will be used to tell your friends about the value of that site. Recommendations are filtered to make them as relevant as possible, while people within your social sphere (Gmail etc) get a higher priority.

This will no doubt help Google to improve their social network side and maybe stick it to Facebook just a little bit. The +1 button will start with English Google search and ads soon. Me? I give it a -1. Are we replacing relevancy with popularity? Probably not since Google wouldn’t want to kill it’s moneymaker, but still, this seems like a road better not taken. Popularity does not equal relevancy. I guess we will all see how this goes.

Qisda phone with 1,280 x 1,024 resolution

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2010

Just how much resolution is enough on our phones? Apparently we aren’t there yet. The Qisda QCM-330 delivers a 1,280 x 1,024 resolution on its 4-inch screen. That’s more than you probably have on your laptop.

The phone is set to be unveiled next month at CeBIT and then you can expect it in Europe on Vodafone. I wonder how such a high resolution looks on such a small screen. Better, that’s for sure, but is it useful? We can’t wait to get more details on this one.

Sansa slotRadio comes with 1,000 songs

Sansa slotRadio comes with 1,000 songsIf you love music, but aren’t picky about what you specifically listen to, this one may be a good bet for your ears. It comes with 1,000 “hand picked” songs. Yeah I know this could spell disaster. Hopefully the songs were handpicked by someone in your age group, so you don’t end up with Britney Spears or Hannah Montana.

It comes with 1,000 songs “handpicked from the Billboard charts” coming on a microSD card for use with the player. If you get bored with those, you can get genre-specific 1,000 song bundles for $40 more. It’s a cool idea, which brings the cost of music down to 4 cents per song and it also cuts downloading out of the equation. The problem is most of the songs will probably be garbage. There’s also an FM radio integrated in there too.
