Google Search for websites improved

Posted by coldtobi | 4 Jun, 2008, 17:20

When subsribed to AdSense, you also get the opportunity to include a "Google Search" for your website. Frequent reader of my blog will remember, that I already tried this to improve your overall blog reading experience.

Don't get me wrong. The lifetype's own search engine is very well, but Google is specialized on search engines and can offer a lots more: Maybe you already encountered that correction of some misspelled words in the search query come very handy. Also, the algorithm knows about synonyms and will also include them in the search result. Example: (For the German readers): Try to search the obsolete term "Nulleiter", and it will search as well for the (correct) term "Neutralleiter".)

Posted by coldtobi | 6 Nov, 2007, 09:18

navitlogoNavIT 0.02 has been released!

Despite that the version is only at 0.02, NavIT is quite stable and feature-rich. And the best of all: It is Open Source! 

Lets quote from the website about the project:

Navit is a car navigation system with routing engine.

It's modular design is capable of using vector maps of various formats for routing and rendering of the displayed map. It's even possible to use multiple maps at a time.

The GTK+ or SDL user interfaces are designed to work well with touch screen displays. Points of Interest of various formats are displayed on the map.

The current vehicle position is either read from gpsd or directly from NMEA GPS sensors.

The routing engine not only calculates an optimal route to your destination, but also generates directions and even speaks to you using speechd.

Navit currently speaks 8 languages.
