Hardware, Embedded Systems And, of course, just as I decide to leave the live blogging to play a game of Left 4 Dead 2, HP drops the big bombshell right at the end of their press event: webOS is coming to PCs!

As a fan of Android, I hope that HP succeeds.

Its scary how much Google knows about me, but it also seems to best fit my usage patterns.

I feel the same.

I stopped using Chromium and switched back to Opera purely because I realised I was using Google on my phone, home laptop and at work.

While to some, it might seem like a silly reason to stop using a web browser, I don't dislike other browsers where as I do dislike other search engines and mobile OSs. So at least I'm cutting down my dependence without forcing a change in my usage patterns.

Try DuckDuckGo.com for a decent search engine. I tried it about a fortnight ago and haven't used Google for anything (but image searches and SEO research) since. I haven't had that, "what results am I missing?" feeling that's so off-putting on Bing/Yahoo/Ask.

Thank you a million times over - If I could mod you up I would.

I've been looking for an alternative search engine for months now.

Er? From the FAQ it looks like they use Bing for their searches (among a couple other sources).
