There were many ways to search the Internet before Google came along, but none of them turned into a verb. These days, a big deal is being made of Google's turning 10 by a lot of the media. Most of the coverage has had a bit of an edge to it, as if people do not want to accept the success that Google has enjoyed.
Google is launching a beta version of its own Web browser on Tuesday in more than 100 countries, the company announced Monday in a blog posting.
Google is considering allowing users of its search engine to tinker with query results by re-ranking them and commenting on them.
Sometimes a technology idea is too good to be true.

Blogging is more popular than ever. We all have personal opinions, and now you can get paid to have your say.
It used to be that computer attacks were perpetrated mostly for fame and recognition. In the last five years the motivation behind the majority of attacks seems to have shifted inexorably from fame to fortune. Parallel to this shift we are now witnessing the emergence of a new attack economy, an efficient multilayer marketplace for information security attacks.
Video may not have killed the radio star, but online it's becoming a killer app. Internet video, once infamous for why-bother image quality, now offers good resolution and decent image quality. This month, we check out an Internet video download service that uses its own software, and a greatly improved old favorite for live video messaging. While we're at it, let's peek at a new way to show and use the Windows XP desktop. Each maker offers at least a taste of its utility for free.
For almost as long as there's been a Web, there's been a Yahoo. Its look, feel, and functionality have changed a lot over the years, mostly through subtle evolution. But today, Yahoo has launched a preview of its <a href="http://www.yahoo.com/preview">new front page</a>, and an awful lot is changing all at once--in ways that are slick, functional, and even entertaining.
Sometimes just a little fix makes it that much easier to surf the Web, navigate your PC's desktop, or even use your keyboard. This month, we look at a Firefox extension that works like Microsoft's Internet Explorer, a freebie that lets you rename the standard Windows Desktop icons, and a low-cost goodie that makes Caps Lock dance to your tune.
You like to know what's going on, don't you? Then you'll want to check out this month's freebies, which keep you on top of things. We look at a tool for analyzing software license agreements, an add-on that improves the usefulness of Windows Task Manager, and a traffic monitor to help you get where you need to go. And did I mention that they're all free?
Browse the web without worrying about prying eyes and ne'er-do-wells. PC World shows you how to minimise or disable pop-ups, as well as how to avoid dangerous viruses and irritating trojans.
An extreme volume of spam calls for extreme measures. You can create a "Safe Mail" folder in Outlook Express as an effective spam filter. Right-click on Local Folders and select New Folder. Next select Tools, Create Rules from Message and pair your address book and any other trusted e-mail address with your Safe Mail folder. In theory, spam will never make it into your Safe Mail folder -- only messages from senders in your address book. This also works with Outlook, Netscape, and various other e-mail programs.
A workhorse that will run the extra mile to increase efficiency in the workspace

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
