Since then Universal Search has grown quite a bit, adding new types of results, expanding to new countries, and triggering on ten times as many queries as it did when we launched it. But as people get more sophisticated at search they are coming to us to solve more complex problems.

Google is ripping out Chrome's awful new bookmark manager Late last year, Google launched a new bookmark manager for Chrome but the overhaul wasn’t that popular with users. After months of silence, Google has quietly confirmed that it’s ripping out the new bookmark manager and rolling back to the old one. The ill-fated overhaul of Chrome’s bookmark manager When Google launched the new bookmark manager complaints started quickly flowing in on the Google Product Forums that it was confusing and hard to use. Despite the u-turn, the company said that “the team will continue to explore other ways to improve the bookmarks experience” and those that “enjoyed the new experience” can keep it for now by installing this extension.

The 90 best infographics Every picture tells a story, as they say, but sometimes it takes a clever combination of words and pictures to tell a story quickly, concisely and in an entertaining fashion.

There are several great tools to create infographics, but these examples of infographics from around the web will show you how you can take it a step further and add a bit of style and personality to your data.

Even saying it costs "$10" is a bit of a stretch, because you can probably build this mostly for free. The ten dollars assumes you cannot scrounge a cardboard box and some white tissue paper you have saved in the gift-wrap supplies box.

Understanding SSD over-provisioning The over-provisioning of NAND flash memory in solid state drives (SSDs) and flash memory-based accelerator cards (cache) is a required practice in the storage industry owing to the need for a controller to manage the NAND flash memory. This is true for all segments of the computer industry—from ultrabooks and tablets to enterprise and cloud servers. Essentially, over-provisioning allocates a portion of the total flash memory available to the flash storage processor, which it needs to perform various memory management functions. This leaves less usable capacity, of course, but results in superior performance and endurance.
