  1. iPhone Hype

    Close to 24 hours away from the Apple iPhone’s much anticipated launch and the buzz around the Internet is pretty high. I’m curious as to the way the product will be received, although all signs seem to point to the positive. For starters, Apple’s recent history of product launches has been nothing short of astounding–not…

  2. Link Rundown

    If you have a minute, check out http://www.bubbl.us. It’s a pretty cool Web-based productivity application for diagrams, brainstorming, etc. This is the type of Web-based app that the world has been warning Microsoft about for some time (i.e. Google Apps). Also, check out the new release of Google Analytics, something every marketer/business owner/Web site operator…

  3. Vroom, Vroom… Increasing Traffic Online

    In the spirit of my post-Super Bowl glow (yay Colts!), I came across this blog about Toyota Tundra’s commercials’ “actual demonstration” disclaimer. Now, I usually don’t pay too much attention to the ads unless they’re pretty funny but I did in fact see one and thought something along the lines of “Actual demonstration? That’s weird…

  4. Partnering in the community

    WebSolvers has a long history of partnering with non-profits in the Orlando/Central Florida area. We recently launched a pro-bono site for UCP of Central Florida, a charitable organization that serves children with special needs. I also wanted to make mention of another project with which we’re charitably involved. A group of Rollins College students has…

  5. One HUNDRED MILLion Web Sites (ah-ha)

    Jakob Nielsen’s Alertbox email came in and the “100 Million Websites” title caught my attention (as well as started me quoting Austin Powers / Dr. Evil lines in my head). Those who use the web always talk about the internet in terms of “large” and “vast” and that weird cloud image but probably never really…

  6. Simple System Maintenance

    A lot of computer novices don’t realize that their computers require maintenance, just like your car, truck or SUV. Windows tends to store many files unnecessarily and over time, those unused files pile up causing things to slow down. You’ll notice it takes longer for Web sites to load or programs to open up. Rather…

  7. Google is Sorry.

    Google is sorry. This message says so. For the third time today, I’ve gotten an error message from Google telling me that my query is suspicious–perhaps eminating from spyware or a virus. It is forcing me to validate that the search is authentic through a simple random character display and dialog box. What’s peculiar is…

  8. Big changes in the realm of search

    We’ve had a few large products go out the door recently so I’ve finally been able to catch up on many of the things going on in the world of search engines. The major search engines have all been trying to do what they can to get your advertising dollars. I’d like to highlight the…

  9. Early Thoughts on Internet Explorer 7 (IE7)

    I downloaded a beta copy of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) several days ago and am starting to form some opinions. This is Microsoft’s first major revision to the browser since 2002. During that time, Firefox has emerged as the browser of choice for many techies and purists: it’s known to be faster, more secure,…
