Unpack Your BING Before You Travel

Bing Travel aims to dramatically reduce the amount of time consumers spend searching for travel information by presenting comprehensive results in one place, and to help consumers make more informed decisions. According to a recent survey by Bing Travel, more than fifty percent of  potential travelers search three or more sites before booking their flight and hotel arrangements. By aggregating Expedia, Cheap Tickets, Cheapoair, Priceline and Booking Buddy on the Bing Travel site, travelers can not only search for flights and hotels but book without ever leaving the search engine.

Google Squared - Hollywood Squares For The Digerati

Google has gone anal, and for all those A-Type personalities that like things neat and tidy, have they got a search engine for you. In a recent move by the Big-G, there is now a way to take all that unstructured data you've been searching for, and collating and sorting it into an orderly spreadsheet of labeled boxes. Literally, that is what Google Squared does. It uses the principles of 'semantic' search, gathering information from multiple sources to present you with all the information required to answer your query.  First announced at Google's recent Searchology event, Google Squared is now live and operational in Beta.

DoMyStuff.com: Business Finds People To Do Your Dirty Work

Recently I introduced you to Friendly Favors, a site that helps you beg and plead a friend or family member to help you out. While some might have called a service like that helpful, most found it to be defeating the purpose of the nature of favors in itself. Well, now there's a similar service that doesn't take advantage of friends, but does allow people to get others to do their stuff.


Twine...Digg on Ritalin!

The digital doorway to Web 3.0 is beginning to ease open ever so slightly, as we learn more and more about semantic technology. Now joining the excitement of Wolfram Alpha and Google Wave is a small start-up called Twine. In the grand scheme of things, Twine might be a fledgling to the social networking space, but its definitely pushing the Web 2.0 envelope inside out with its debut. Similar to online aggregators like Kayak for travel sites or Indeed.com for job seekers, Twine acts as an aggregator of articles, blogs, documents and videos that you can accumulate from friends, associates or as a result of your own research. Twine then ties it neatly all together by topic, so you can have it in one place and can connect with other twiners with similar interests.

Google Wave, Email on Steroids!

Ooops they did it again! No, not the Britney Spears fan club! Google did it again...stealing Microsoft's thunder by rolling out Wave, their new communications and collaborative tool during the same week Microsoft debuted Bing, its new search engine. Google Wave is what email would be like if it were on steroids! It is a little of everything all mashed up into one big giant framework. Wave is part email, IM, calendar, Twitter, wiki, spreadsheets/docs/presentation, picture sharing, social media, forums, maps and just about everything else on the web, but the kitchen sink!
