Wasn't there an old PA strip where they stood upon a chart of web traffic, the PA line twice as high as the PVP line, and Gabe said "I can see our house from here"?

I can't find it in the archiverizationalisms.

Anyone know whar tis?

    Bing is incredible really.

    If Google doesn't buy them or do something equivalent, then it could be the beginning of the end.

    New Year’s Eve is the best. For one magical night, even the most straight-laced babe feels socially obligated to get blindingly drunk and act like a total whore. Pretty daddy’s girls with blond hair and tight asses swill cheap champagne and toss back shots of peach schnapps until they’re flashing their big, firm tits at any chump who wanders by.

    Since Bing is owned by Microsoft, I do not see a Google acquisition happening.

    It'll be some years before Google can buy Microsoft. :P

    Uh, Bing is Windows Live Search with a new name.

    Google aren't buying MS anytime soon.

    Bing has the better technology though.

    Google may always be around because of stuff like GMail and Ads, but I think their reign as the top search engine will end in a matter of years.

    Google has been slipping up some lately, so a little humbling could do them some good. Every time MS gets humbled they make a better product.

    Google essentially has the IE problem, in that every advertiser on the planet is trying to break their product constantly.

    Didn't Google Wave come out and become fuck-all useless except for only very specific things?


    Wasn't it supposed to be a GMail killer, or hell, the climax of textual communication?

    It still needs a few features to be useful, and those features are planned.

    Huh it looks like PA dropped off massively about halfway through last year. I wonder why.

    Maybe it had to do with the server migration or something?

    It seems like it's the place to go when you are actually looking for something specific, rather than just dicking around on Google.

    Wave is still in the invite-only beta stage, and it's pretty awesome except nobody is using it.

    As for search, this kind of reminds me of the old days when you'd go through three or four search engines (with names nobody remembers anymore like Lycos and Altavista) because each one had slightly different but still sorta useful results for whatever you were looking for.

    1.4m a month is still a lot. Sites go through peaks and valleys and there isn't always an explanation. Plus this has been kind of a a down two years where people are busy looking for work, preparing to be fired, or trying to keep their job.
