A9.com

New web search engine from…Amazon! A9.com uses Google as its main search engine but adds a couple of nice features. Firstly your search results will contain any book references which are found in a seperate tab. Also, if you have an Amazon account and log into a9.com your search history will be displayed – handy when trying to remember how you found a particular website. Like Google they also have a browser toolbar which has the same features as Google but also contains a ‘diary’ feature where you can store comments/to-do’s against any websites. Nice.

However it looks more like Amazon trying to capture sales than anything else, and also the searches return less results than Google. Maybe they only have access to some of Google’s search engine? And I don’t like the idea of search results tied to my user account ties to my purchases. I’ll stick to Google for now.

Oops

The new boat launched from Govan has a bit of a dent in it. But from this picture it’s hardly car sized – trust Google groups to reveal the ‘truth’.

Grass

So today was the first time. Today I cut my lawn. Fairly straighforward too, although the front is mostly moss and weeds. Sigh. So weed and feed will be applied later in the week with some grass seed added next month. I can see this rapidly turning into a chore.

Batman Begins
