Technology Tidbits

David Kapuler, a school technology specialist, has developed a nifty blog profiling new educational technologies. In my judgement Technology Tidbits would be a good resource for anyone involved in education at any level.

Good Search

Good Search is a firm that claims to share search revenue with charities designated by its users. The firm says it is powered by Yahoo search.

I had heard that Yahoo is now powered by Bing search, so I compared the first six results of a search for "Indiana Wesleyan University" conducted using Bing, Good Search, and Yahoo. The Bing and Good Search Results were identical, while the Yahoo results differed, so perhaps Yahoo is adding some unique content to the Bing results.
