Yahoo has rolled out a beta for a feature designed to meet an unfilled need in online search: automated note-taking. The new Search Pad feature in Yahoo Search automates note taking through a number of functions, such as saving recently visited links. It does not target the search engine user who's looking for a quick answer and is satisfied with the first or second link returned, said Yahoo's Tom Chi. Rather, it is aimed at people who are researching complex issues -- from a car purchase to a course of medical treatment.

Yahoo should partner with Twitter or purchase Palm. Google is already in the PDA sector and Microsoft has a piece of Facebook. Yahoo needs to shed its "too old" image and position itself where they can pick up marketshare.

What do you think of politically inspired Internet memes?
They tend to be brutally honest about their targets.
They're usually cheap shots based on lies.
They're often stupid but amusing.
They can have a dangerous influence on uninformed people.
They don't impress me one way or the other.
