On a related note – finding more and more of my conference calls are now Skype video or Google Hangout video calls. And if it’s audio-only, I’m a big fan of Uber Conference. Great service and has nice little touches like showing you who is speaking, and being able to call-in through your browser.
I haven’t kept up with this show, but this is hysterical — from HBO: Flight of the Conchords:
Gotta love the Funny or Die crew plus this is a peak at the real Paris Hilton – business mogul extraordinaire:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Like everyone else I watched the frenzy over the launch of Cuil, a new search engine founded by several ex-Googlers.
After using it a bit, there is definitely something nice and elegant about Cuil, and I noticed that Matt was going to use it for a few days to get a better sense of it as well.
As I’m sure 99% of people do, I typed in my own name to see what results would come back, and was shocked by the results 🙂
On the one hand, it correctly identifies me as a multi-dimensional athlete – baseball, basketball, and boxing ( thai kick boxing in my case ).
On the other hand, it appears that Matt has taken over my “look & feel” UI aspects, as it clearly shows his head-shot on my blog.
“CUIL in French is like “Balls” (the dirty meaning)”
Ahh ! Now it all makes sense 🙂
But seriously — it’s good to see another search engine play – and hope we see some great innovation and search improvements overall.
A few months ago I switched from gmail to google apps for personal email and subsequently also moved over a few of my family members. Little did I know that these family members have been secretly working on new cool gmail features as part of Google’s “Labs” effort.
Take a look at what appears at the bottom of my google apps email settings page 🙂
And joining the “Bar-Cohen Family Mail team” has many benefits:
Gotta love it ! 🙂

One of the fastest growing, and funniest, blogs on WordPress.com is Stuff White People Like.
I cracked up this morning when I read this latest post on “San Francisco“:
Though it is exceptionally easy to put someone from San Francisco in a good mood, there are some caveats. When talking to a white person who lives in San Francisco, it is best not to bring up New York City. Though they live in a world class city, San Franciscans have a crippling inferiority complex about New York and even hinting at that will make them very sad or very defensive.
