Korea's Naver & Daum Build Better 'Search' Mousetraps Than Google?

While Google is the search engine of choice for the majority of American Internet users, garnering on upwards of 75% of the search market dependent on who you're talking to - it is actually a less sophisticated tool than search engines in Korea. Why would territory the size of the state of Minnesota have more advanced search technology than the Grand Daddy of Search Engines who competes with countries 200 times their size, namely China.

Fiskars New Reel Mower, Sharper, Stronger, Wider

I had a reel mower not long ago. Long story short, I stopped using it after about a year. It worked well cutting high grass as long as there was no other debris on the ground (pinecones, twigs, etc.) and the ground was very dry. Could Fiskars innovative reel mower turn me back to reel mowers once again?

Big Bang Too & 'The God(damn) Particle' Were A Smashing Success!

Fictional Schrute Farms B&B Gets 4 Stars From TripAdvisor

Promoted as the 'lifeblood of agrotourism,' by Dwight Schrute, the eccentric paper salesman played by Rainn Wilson on the award-winning NBC series, "The Office," Trip Advisor gets free publicity for a B&B that doesn't even exist -- to the tune of over 633 reviews (and counting). There's very few hotels in Manhattan that can garner that kind of attention.

Flash Mobs: From Social Media To 'Tsunami Of Kids'

What started as an innocent by-product of kids meeting on Twitter and Facebook has turned into a social experiment gone terribly wrong. A 'Flash Mob' is when teenagers organize a meet-up via social networks and text friends and followers to show up in large numbers at a specified time and place.

Augmented Reality For Tablets Goes Where No Man Has Gone Before

While Augmented Reality technology has been a topical point of interest these last couple of weeks at events like SWSWi in Austin and CTIA Wireless 2010 in Las Vegas, there has been very little talk of the suitability of utilizing AR features with the new tablets that will be flooding the market in the next couple of months. Granted, iPad's sin of omission by not including a camera or webcam kind of eliminates them from consideration, but it seems to me that the 10" tablet versus the 3" smartphone screen would provide users with a greater opportunity to view AR overlays, markers, advertising, points of interest and other layers of data that AR is known for.
