links roundup for deskbarshortcuts.com
i wanted to also comment on the entry that nathaniel wrote about in the insidemicrosoft link. basically i agree with him that google should be scared. i dont particularly like microsoft, but i do approve of innovation and ease of use. basically if microsoft creates a better search tool, then users WILL move to microsoft.
i would really hate to see google go the way of netscape. i remember back then that it wsa unthinkable that microsoft could get IE to win. but they did by making it a better tool ...and bundeling it with windows.
the deskbar is a precious piece of real estate. its ALWAYS visible to the user. google shoudl have really pushed their deskbar when they released it. but they kept it in beta, in the labs...they shoudl put a big fat link to it on their homepage!
but, if they want to be lazy, arrogant, and close their ears off to the stuff going on in the front line (ie user space), then microsoft will soon make them irrelevant.
as for me, im commited to innovating new solutions with anyones technology. google..please wow me again
