BW: Vonage raises $200M in venture capital. This makes over $400M total. Man, and I thought PayPal raised a lot of money. Well, I guess they're thinking big, overthrowing the world's telecom industry is going to take some money :)
Have you noticed that Google has become slower? Noticably, for me. They've added too much crap, and are no longer a skinny fast search engine.
I have about 20 domains that I maintain, for myself, my companies, and some charities. I've been using register.com for about four years, after having used Network Solutions since time zero (remember interNIC handles?). I thought register.com was a great improvement. But now I've switched to GoDaddy. The difference between $35/year and $8/year is pretty compelling. Also register.com's site is slow, probably because of all the ads clogging their pages.
Slashdot notes searching by image instead of by keywords. I need to tell you about a project I'm working on which intends to do exactly this - content-based retrieval of images. This is a hard problem - I do not fear other approaches as competition, I fear my own inability to execute. Anyway stay tuned and I'll tell you about Picton.
