Are Internet Explorer users dumb? Kidding Right?

Are Internet Explorer users dumb?(CNN)

Are users of other Web browsers smarter than the people who use Microsoft’s Internet Explorer? A new survey doesn’t quite say so. But it sure as heck suggests it. The survey by AptiQuaint, a Vancouver-based Web consulting company, gave more than 100,000 participants an IQ test, while monitoring which browser they used to take the test. The result? Internet Explorer users scored lower than average, while Chrome, Firefox and Safari users were slightly above average. (Continue reading at CNN)

My Two Cents: I hope these folks are kidding. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is the most used, then Safari , Firefox, and last Google Chrome. We test our web products on all 4. Probably the IQ results are higher for the non Microsoft’s Internet Explorer because the last 3 are more buggy. So you have to have a higher IQ to use them. Now I am kidding.
I personally like the new IE 9, and I have always like Safari. A lot of IT people use Firefox and sware by it. Google Chrome is still to buggy for me.

Google+ vs. Facebook

An ex-Googler’s inside view on Google+ vs. Facebook(CNN)

An ex-Googler’s inside view on Google+ vs. Facebook, there is no shortage of punditry around the future and fate of Google+. The argument is generally phrased along the lines of is Google+ a Facebook killer? (Continue reading at CNN.com)

My Two Cents: The argument is generally phrased along the lines of is Google+ a Facebook killer? I give Google a 50% chance at best. Google shouldn’t be looking to “Kill” Facebook. The word “Kill” to me is a waste of time and energy. All Google needs to do is develop a better service than Facebook has to offer in the social networking world. Look at Myspace and how it failed. If Facebook cannot keep up with the demand of free services and leverage it’s user base to sell marketing and other goods and services than Facebook is doomed. The cool factor is fading for Facebook, and if Google can step up to the plate maybe the term “kill” would be more like “suicide”, like what happened to Myspace.
