Here are some things that have come across my desk...

New Search Engines

Cydral offers image and site searches, with a "family filter". Great for when you need an ego boost, such as when I searched for pictures using my name keyword, and got back pics of Kim Alexis , Kim Cattral, Kim Basinger and a host of other Kim's with bodies that don't resemble mine, except for possibly the "rate my rack" woman. (Showing up on the family friendly search?) If you happen to see something naughty in what you thought would be a victorian-age type of search, they've added a nifty "Panic Button".

Tao of Search, BETA launch, out of Maryland, USA

The owner writes, "TaoOfSearch is building a whole new Internet search structure to address five core issues related to the Internet search - Coverage, Relevancy, Freshness, Efficiency, and Self-improvement."

It's in need of submissions to help with beta testing.

New Keyword Search Tool

This one has many the SEO/SEM's guessing and debating what determines the numerical value of the "results" on the right side.

Google Suggest is in BETA.

Other Stuff

My friend Doreen, from Accents of the West raves about this site - Answers That Work. She writes, "The free service is called Task List - on the page there are alphabetical buttons which lead you to ALL (or nearly all) of the tasks that may be running in the background on your computer. Once you identify the item Task List explains what it is, if you need it, if it's dangerous and how to get rid of it."

There is a freeware option and $20 version. The site explains technical PC matters in terms everyone can understand. This is taken from their "The Ultimate Troubleshooter" - "From PC lock-ups to illegal operations, Internet Explorer crashes, slow-downs, and more, Yes, a staggering 65% of problems are purely and simply down to what is running in the background on your PC. The trick to having a PC that runs smoothly most of the time, is to know which background tasks are good, which are not, and which are needed only sometimes."
