Yahoo may be working up plans to pitch to be the default in Safari on iOS devices. Here's why that dream is unlikely to become reality.
Apparently Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer wants to be the default search for Apple’s Safari browser on iPhone and iPad and has been preparing to make a solid pitch. Well, we all want things we can’t have, and I’d be incredibly surprised if Yahoo got its wish here. Kara Swisher over at Re/code has the scoop, […]

They can dream but Yahoo will never be the default search on anything for me.

Anyone with 1,000 Google+ followers can now turn their Google+ posts into ads that show across the web.
Touting it as a way for brands to “make the entire web their social stream,” Google today announced the full rollout of +Post ads. The ad program gives advertisers the ability to place Google+ posts onto Google’s display advertising network. In testing since December, the program is now available to any Google+ page with at […]

Union Metrics rolls-out a new Instagram analytics tool.

But wait, there’s more! Today a new professional grade product […]

It's not your imagination. You probably lost some Google+ followers. But it's down to a change in how Google+ reports counts. IE, you didn't have them in the first place :)
On March 25, many Google+ brand accounts noticed a big dip in followers displayed on profile pages. In fact, Marketing Land decreased by 20%, even Search Engine Land decreased by 40%. Initially some have thought that this was a “spring cleaning” of spammy Google+ accounts following profiles pages; however, it’s really pulling out the followers […]

Yahoo's earnings show a slight rise in search revenue. But the latest comScore stats show Yahoo's hit a new low in search marketshare for the US. And if it loses 0.2% more, it'll be into a single-digit share for the first time in, well, since it started.
On the heels of Yahoo’s Q1 2014 earnings in which its search business showed signs of life comScore released new monthly search market share figures for the US market. They show Yahoo with 10.1 percent of the market — a new low for the company. It would appear that Yahoo is continuing its long, slow […]

+Danny Sullivan What I think, +Yahoo! is totally look like a news website not like a search engine where user just  enter and read the news, and then left. They(user) do not notice the small size of search box above headlines.. New user who not well aware about +Yahoo! , they only visit here to read news, not search. 

+Yahoo! should increase the appeal  of search box so that user can notice search box at first sight.

Solid revenues by Google, but analysts wanted more -- and are likely to fixate on cost-per-clicks being down rather than growth in paid clicks overall.
Google announced quarterly revenues this afternoon. The company said it had “consolidated revenues” of $15.42 billion (including Motorola), up 19 percent vs. last year. However, neither the topline nor earnings per share beat financial analysts’ expectations. Accordingly, the stock is down nearly 6 percent in after-hours trading. Below are some of the highlights from the […]

Cortana leaps off Windows Phone 8.1 and onto Bing -- and that's a big deal for how Microsoft will make its new digital assistant more powerful in predicting answers.
One of the most interesting things about Microsoft’s new Cortana search assistant has just gone live for those early adopters of it: integration with Bing’s search results. Cortana Personalization Comes To Bing Those using Cortana will now find “personalized cards” that will appear at the bottom of the Bing home page: Personalized information cards will […]

An anti-smoking campaign made two Tinder accounts for the same person, with the only difference a profile picture where she's smoking in one. Result? Turns out smoking doesn't make you smoking hot.
Ah, Tinder. That Hot or Not-ish site on which those who care only about looks can seek intimacy with others who only care about looks. It’s the way of things these days. After all, who really cares what a person is actually like when that gets in the way of the simplicity of a dating […]

Case not proven. 1/ name is different. Is there a different response to name? 2/ facial expression - in images shown, the smoking picture looks to be in an emotionally different place.... You need the images to be directly comparable, such that random groups perceive the same attributes, before you can tell whether the response is caused by being perceived as a smoker.

Fun way to use a dating app, though.

Great tacos and more. Enough said. This is the original that gave birth to other Chronics around Southern California. Pick whatever you want, it'll be great. I go for the fatty tacos or the tostada bowls myself. The store is very small; no seats, and if it's busy, you'll be standing in line for up to 15 minutes to get your food. But the staff will be friendly while you wait, and you'll enjoy what you get.

I ended up here almost by accident in September 2010. There was a big event at Jericho, where we thought we could pick up guns for our group of newbies, which included me. No such luck. But we saw the sign for No Limits and figured it was a close enough drive. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us plenty of time, talked through the different options, and we left with guns that have continued to do us fine. No problems, no fails, they're holding up great. I realized that we'd left the rail for one of the guns behind about a week later. I called, and they sent it to us no problem, covering the postage on their end. In April, we were in the area so I headed back to get a pistol. Same thing: really helpful staff. About the only downside is that if the shop is busy, you might have a wait. But compared to my nightmare experience with doing mail order through Airsplat (gun doesn't work, sent back, still doesn't work, sigh), it was nice feeling like here was a place that was going to ensure I had solid equipment. And I do.
