As the title of this blog post suggests, the New Year brings with it whole new challenges. For some it’s losing weight, getting fit, or learning a new language. For many students in their last year of university, it’s finding the time to secure a career (or even simply work experience) whilst still focussing on completing their work.
Google’s I/O conference gets technology and SEO folks all worked up. It might be for developers, but we’ve all got a stake in Googley goings on. Reading up about it over the weekend, it seems that Google has teased us all with visions of the future – well, the Google-centric version of the future.

Does the world really need a new multi-platform Internet browser? Yahoo! seems to think so. Suspend your disbelief for a while though, as we take a quick look at Axis, the new browser for iOS and desktops.
For some, the idea of computers being able to comprehend human levels of understanding is a fear-inducing, apocalyptical vision. For others, it’s simply logical progress. Well, depending on your point of view, Google either has great news or very bad news – the Knowledge Graph is here.
This month we’ve seen some really interesting movements in terms of market share for search engines on both sides of the Atlantic. In some instances it’s business as usual, but in the case of the UK markets, some search engines have thrown up a few surprises.
With the unceremonious exit of Scott Thomson as the CEO at Yahoo! things are looking even more disorganised and rudderless than usual at the former Search Engine giant. So what’s next for Yahoo! and can they ever get back on track.
