FINAL SATURDAY SHOW EDITION

This has been a difficult decision for me, but since the first of the year, certain events have transpired that compel me to CLOSE Electronica Radio effective Monday. I can no longer give this blog the attention it and it's readers deserve and after nearly three years of running it, it's time to say goodbye.

Meanwhile, I don't wish to leave you stranded in the technological universe, so here are some of my favorite sites that I get info from:

HACKADAY - this website offers great how to's on building cool electronica, or hacking the tech you have to do other cool things. It's worth a bookmark.

ENGADGET - sets the standard for tech blog reporting. And his weekly podcast can't be missed.

THE GIZ (GIZMODO) - With a cool name like that, how can you miss?

PVRBLOG - Keep up on all you need to know about Digital Video Recording. If you're into TIVO or the PSP, this is the ticket.

DAILY ROTATION - the one stop shop for the latest TECH headlines from all over the net.

SLASHDOT - The best geek site around. It's always been considered cool to have your website "slashdotted," but I bet they've never been E-R'd! There are others, to be sure. But these are my favorites. It where I've gotten much of the news I've shared over the years.

Thanks to all who have visited this site and thanks to those who helped me make it possible.

And with that, E-R signs off.

Yahoo Boasts Size of Its Search Engine Index



Trying not to include any phallic analogies, Yahoo this week announced that its overall search engine index is much larger than Google’s and is the most in depth index of ‘web objects’ on the search market. On the Yahoo Search Blog, Yahoo disclosed that its index now includes 19.2 billion web documents, 1.6 billion images and more than 50 million audio and video files - over 20 billion items.

Yahoo is usually shy about disclosing the size of its search index, but the Yahoo Search Blog is celebrating its first year anniversary and Tim Mayer thought that somewhat of a retrospect was in order - since Yahoo has grown into its own as a search engine powerhouse over the past 365 days.

From the YSearchBlog : While we typically don’t disclose size (since we’ve always said that size is only one dimension of the quality of a search engine), for those who are curious this update includes just over 19.2 billion web documents, 1.6 billion images, and over 50 million audio and video files.

Note that as with all index updates we are still tuning things so you’ll continue to see some fluctuation in ranking over the next few weeks.

Greg Sterling of the Kelsey Group, however, makes the distinction of quality over quantity What I, Joseph User, care about is accuracy, quality and relevance. The available index does matter in terms of bringing me a sufficient quantity of results. (And if I’m looking for something really obscure, having that thing in the index is obviously important, which may go to size.).

But there’s a major case of diminishing returns—there’s already way too much information online for people to assimilate. Throwing more volume at me does nothing but make my eyes glaze over. What I want is enough relevant results.”

Index schmindex, the moral of the story is what Yahoo has accomplished over the past year and what the next 12 months will bring with not only Yahoo Search, but the Yahoo Publishers Network, Yahoo LinkSpots, Yahoo Pay Per Call, and Site Explorer. What has Yahoo accomplished over the past year? Well, here’s Tim’s rundown :
