No, Google does not make you stupid according to recently conducted survey.No, Google does not make you stupid according to recently conducted survey.

The impetus for the survey apparently came from a summer 2009 article in the Atlantic Monthly, in which author Nicholas Carr suggested that the ease of browsing and searching on the Web was steadily degrading people’s ability to concentrate and think.

Want to know just how speedy YouTube is in your area?Want to know just how speedy YouTube is in your area?

An interesting little page that I didn't know existed on YouTube's website. I'm quite surprised to see my ISP performing as well it does compared to the rest of the state of New York (or in some cases the rest of the country).

Engadget pulls the curtain back on their very own iPhone app.Engadget pulls the curtain back on their very own iPhone app.

I've just downloaded this and it's not too shabby overall. If you're like me and pop over to Engadget at least once a day this should save you some time (or waste time depending on how you look at it). Lastly, I find the iPhone app to be a little easier on the eyes than their current website design (yech).
