Multiple Search Engine Sites:

Multiple Search Engine Sites allow you to check across many engines at once using a single site. The idea is good, it's a fast/comprehensive way to cast a wide net over several search engines. The bad news is that you cannot always narrow your search effectively because the different engines use different programming techniques. Use multiple searches if you are hunting for something obscure and cannot find enough hits when you use your favorite single search engine:

Jux2 - Most people think that the major search engines serve up similar results. In fact, tests show as many as 6 of the top ten results can be different. This web site allows you to compare the top 10 results on Google, Yahoo and Ask Jeeves. Instead of just seeing 10 highly ranked results from one search engine, you see 16-17 highly ranked results from the two combined on a single page. You can also install a browser button to have Jux2 right at your fingertips.

Searchme - (Beta) Not unlike a few of the visual search engines above, Searchme lets you see what you’re searching for. As you start typing, categories appear that relate to your query. Choose a category, and you’ll see pictures of web pages that answer your search. You can review these pages quickly to find just the information you’re looking for, before you click through.

Teoma - A new search engine which offers impressive results by using a new technology they call "Subject-Specific Popularity." They ask experts within a specific subject community about who they believe is the best resource for that subject. You almost always get very relevant results, neatly organized and tips on how to refine your search.

Wisenut - Categorizes/Clusters Results

* new * Yippy! Search updated  What makes Yippy Search unique? It's a whole new way to search the web. Yippy queries several top search engines, combines the results, and generates an ordered list based on comparative ranking. This "metasearch" approach helps raise the best results to the top and push search engine spam to the bottom. But what really makes Yippy unique is what happens after you search. Instead of delivering millions of search results in one long list, our search engine groups similar results together into “clouds.” Clouds help you see your search results by topic so you can zero in on exactly what you’re looking for or discover unexpected relationships between items. When was the last time you went to the third or fourth page of the search results? Rather than scrolling through page after page, the clouds help you find results you may have missed or that were buried deep in the ranked list.

Yippy Search, formerly known as Clusty, got its start in Pittsburgh, PA in 2004 when the search software company Vivísimo decided to take its award-winning search technology to the web. Vivísimo was founded in 2000 by three Carnegie Mellon University scientists who decided to tackle the problem of information overload in web search. Rather than focusing just on search engine result ranking, we realized that grouping results into topics, or "clouds," made for better search and discovery. As search became a necessity for web users, Vivísimo developed a service robust enough to handle the variety of information the everyday web user was after. The result was Clusty: an innovative way to get more out of every search. Clusty was acquired by Yippy, Inc. in May 2010

DTV (Digital TV) - The Change Over
Please do not confuse DTV with HDTV they are not the same.


As of late 2009, 10 countries had completed the process of turning off analog terrestrial broadcasting. Many other countries had plans to do so or were in the process of a staged conversion. The first country to make a wholesale switch to digital over-the-air (terrestrial) broadcasting was Luxembourg, in 2006, followed by the Netherlands later in 2006, Finland, Andorra, Sweden and Switzerland in 2007, Belgium (Flanders) and Germany in 2008, and the United States, Denmark and Norway in 2009. In June, 2010, Latvian analogue television will be completely switched off.

The Big Switch Over began in the U.S as of June 11th 2009. Cable & Satellite providers have switched most of their users over to the new DTV standard in the U.S and are giving a 3-Year grace period to those who have not moved over to digital cable or digital satellite before they shut-off the older analog services. In Japan, the switch to digital is scheduled to happen July 24, 2011. In Canada, it is scheduled to happen August 31, 2011. China is scheduled to switch in 2015. In the United Kingdom, the digital switchover has different times for each part of the country; however, the whole of the UK will be digital by 2012. Brazil switched to digital on December 2nd, 2007 in major cities and it is estimated it will take seven years for complete signal expansion over all of the Brazilian territory... For the rest of the story and better understanding on what exactly is happening with the switch over click here: DTV - Wikipedia or some of the links below as well.

Information and the Facts:

What does DTV stand for? (Deep Vein Thrombosis), no at least not in this case, it stands for Digital TV.
Read up on the facts about DTV (Digital TV), DTV versus HDTV, DCR?, etc and their impacts. Over the next 3-Years those still left on analog services (e.g  Cable, and Satellite)  will gradually notice more and more channels disappearing from their channel lineup, get the facts on DTV (Digital TV) and DCR (Digital Cable Ready) equipment by reading more below.

What is a Digital Cable Ready (DCR) device?
Source Verizon FIOS TV Support - Digital Cable Hardware FAQ's

A DCR device is a TV, DVR, or other electronic receiver capable of providing access to certain High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) digital services.

DCR devices can also provide access to encrypted digital services without the need for a Set-Top Box when a CableCARD is inserted into the slot labeled "CableCARD" or "POD" (Point of Deployment), usually located at the back of the TV, sometimes on a PC known as a TV Card.

Certain advanced features are not available when you use a CableCARD, such as:

  • TV Interactive Media Guide
  • On Demand (Movies, Sports Events etc)
  • TV Widgets

Will my device work with a CableCARD?
Devices that work with a CableCARD must be labeled as "DCR" by their manufacturers. If you device is not labeled "DCR" it is not likely to work with a CableCARD.

For instance, TVs labeled as "Integrated Digital Tuner" (but not DCR) do not accept a CableCARD and will need a Set-Top Box to provide access to encrypted digital content (e.g Interactive Media Guide, On Demand, Widgets).

Language Translation Tools and Services:

Did you wonder how we were translating some of our web pages ?

Today it seems like it's easier than ever to communicate with one another especially with the intervention of the Internet. Understand as good as they may seem, there are a vast number of translation tools and services out there that are likely to interpret incorrectly during translation. It's a great thing but please be aware of this and not hold the translations services entirely responsible as it is still new technology. Here are a few of the more recognizable online translations services available for text and website URL's and other sites with links to even more. Beware of some free services do yourself a favor take the time and read up on the subject, look for reviews and that the service has what is known as a Certified Translation Certificate.

Please remember: Language translation is extremely difficult, as the meaning of words and phrases often depends on the context and specialized knowledge of the domain area or culture. Sentence structures and grammatical rules vary significantly between two languages, which adds to the complexity of the translation challenge. Currently, it still requires human skills to translate sentences without errors. The quality of today's most advanced translation software is well below the accuracy and fluency of a professional translator, and many sentences are simply not understandable. Researchers are continuously working on improvements, but it may be many years before high quality translation can be consistently offered by a computer. For this reason, some services display both the original text and its translation, anticipating that you will find it easier to understand the translation and to compare it with the original content if needed.
