Cuil launches Cpedia. Conforms to Cuil standards

Remember Cuil, the search engine that was launched with much hype but never came even close to being a Google-killer? You would have thought the company was dead, the investors bankrupt and the creators hiding themselves in shame. Yet they are back, back with another awfully incompetent product called Cpedia.

The articles, if we can call them articles, are just a collection of incoherent and unrelated stack of information pulled from god knows what pages on the Internet and pasted together devoid of any sense of continuity and sanity.

At first I was left wondering how they could even release such a product, and then I remembered these are the same people who created Cuil. That explained everything.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run.
