Multi-Country Legal Issue

Lately we’ve had to contemplate some of our policies to address turf war complaints as they come in.

Example: An England firm claims in an article that they have the original registered trademark on a certain name brand, unlike their copycats in Spain who also complain and claim that they have the original trademark of the same brand… only for us to research and find out two USA companies also have an identical legitimate registered trademark on the same brand name.

Who’s right?

My Google to replace My Yahoo?

I’ve had My Yahoo as my default home page for years now, but this morning I tried out the new My Google personalized home page.

Now that I’ve installed the CustomizedGoogle extension in my FireFox browser, I think I may be ready to switch to My Google for my home page. This FireFox extension gives me the power of a Google search with the option to try alternate search engines from the previously populated search field that I entered.

Google’s delivery is cleaner than Yahoo but it appears Yahoo gives a few more choices in the customization.

[UPDATED 2 days later: My first link in my bookmarks on My.Google page is a link to My.Yahoo… Yeah, I’ve come full circle because my Firefox browser keeps messing up displaying the personalized Google page right]

What do you use for your personlized home page?

EzineArticles RSS, going deeper

In an interest to make it even easier for you to add ANY of our 182 categories of fresh new articles to your My.Yahoo or MyMSN customized home page or to plug it into your RSS reader of choice, we’ve now implemented RSS feed buttons that are category specific within each category.

Example: When you go our Weight Loss section, on the upper right corner of the category view, you’ll notice 3 buttons to help you implement that feed into your RSS vehicle of choice.

1,000 Word Comments

Previously, we had placed a limit on COMMENTS that were posted to any article on our site to a 400 word limit.

Seeing that our 400 word limit was wrong due to commentors posting multiple parts to make a comment, we’ve upped it to 1,000 words per comment.
