A New Portal: MyWay.Com

Portals--My Way
A New Portal Launches: Hello to MyWay.Com
MyWay.Com is part of the Excite Network and touts "one the Internet's most protective privacy policies and -- most importantly -- does not contain a single banner or pop-up advertisement throughout the entire site." The search and directory portion of the site features Google content. All formats are available but unlike Google.Com, documents converted to html are listed as cached. Other portal features include free e-mail (5mb inbox), page personalization, toolbar, and more.

Note: If you dive into the MyWay.Com site you might come across a "search glossary" page. The definition of Boolean includes the following sentence, "The Boolean words that will work with My Way search are: AND, NOT, OR, and NEAR." This statement is not accurate. OR works (as it does at Google.Com) but AND, NOT, and NEAR are a no go. The only search engine to offer NEAR (10 words in either direction) is AltaVista. Thanks to Greg Notess for confirming. As I've said many times, Greg's Search Engine Features Chart is THE place to go to find what each engine does and does not offer.

    Wednesday, 26th November 2014

    The consumption of news has changed radically in the past few years. The devices we use to read news have changed, along with the possible targets and methods of taking actions from news content. In an environment where you need to act decisively on news that directly affects your reputation, knowledge base and competitive position, it is very important to understand how to leverage news sources.
