Lovely marketing stunt: online retailer charges "tax" on customers using IE7 :-)
The Australian online retailer Kogan.com has introduced the world's first "tax" on use of Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) browser.

"Today, we are rolling out a new feature of the +1 button in platform preview: when users hover over a +1 button, they will see recommendations for other great content on your site."

A Google Adwords ad with a built-in email subscription form. I wonder if we'll be seeing lots more of these.

Good point, Mitchell! I guess it might possibly make sense for a daily deal website or if you're just leaving your details so that someone can get in touch / send you more information.

Google has apparently also experimented with more detailed lead capture forms: http://www.seroundtable.com/adwords-subscribe-form-14046.html

Disappointing. Our food took nearly an hour to arrive and was poorly cooked.

This place has a great range of home made gluten-free cakes. We tried the lemon drizzle and carrot cakes and both were delicious. We also ordered a pot of tea for two which turned out to be of very generous dimensions - plenty for a refill or two. Recommended!
