Welcome back to Tues News, where I take credit for finding amazing stuff that other people created. Hey, I’m kind of like Columbus “discovering” far off lands that had millions of people already living there. Sounds like a good deal for me because, after all, there’s a Columbus Day every year and I’ve never heard of a “Millions of People Already Living There Day.” Let’s get to the links:
- Is Google getting rid of minimum bids? Why, that would be like Disneyland getting rid of lines! There is so much traffic to be had on the low search volume and generic terms; it’s nice to see that Google is reconsidering their crazy stance on hating money.
- If you’re worried that Google Earth is eventually going to discover all your secrets, you may be right. If you’re a cow or a deer, though, it may already be too late. Google Earth images show that cows and deer stand in predictable north/south orientations while grazing and lazing about. If wolves read this blog, you herbivores just got punked in a bad way. Furthermore, to any cows, deer or wolves: bravo! Way to teach yourself how to read!
- Have you ever said to yourself, “Man, I love the Internet, but who has 28 seconds to use separate applications to complete a task nowadays? If we could cut that down to 18 seconds, I’d really appreciate it.” Well, Mozilla is listening, and with the upcoming release of Mozilla Ubiquity, combining tasks such as searching, mapping, emailing and more will be an exercise in simplicity rather than the exercise in relative simplicity that it currently is. Grandparents rejoice!
In all seriousness, this Mozilla Ubiquity thing could be a coup. We all remember how much simple tabs–introduced by Mozilla Firefox–improved browsing efficiency. I wouldn’t underestimate the intelligent folks over there. Here is an impressive demonstration of how Ubiquity might work:

Ha ha, his friend’s name sounds like “a tool!” Sorry, ahem, *cough*, excuse me; no really, I’m sure he’s a super cool dude.
Thanks for stopping by. Read up on and keep up with the online world; keep reading Tues News! Catch ya later!
