  • Are Google Investors Too Exuberant Before Apple Introduces Its Next iPhone? [View article]
    You might be surprised. Search quality is difficult to measure. In your mind you associate Google with search like Kleenex with tissue, but other search providers get you to your info too, so it's hard to argue that Google is better. I haven't used it in two years and my internet life isn't lacking.Duckduckgo, by the way.

    They should buy Morton's salt company. Salt is widely used in baking. Oh, and Sara Lee too. They make good frozen pies.

  • Apple Introduces The Best iPod touch Yet [View article]
    Yes. The iPhone performs all of the functions of the iPod Touch. The iPod, however costs much less because it doesn't have the functions of a phone.
