What Do You Love? Google Gives it to You


Google just covertly launched a new search tool, and now we’re about to let you in on the secret. We first heard the news from Mashable, who says the “mysterious service” has not officially been announced by Google. It’s a mystery to us how Mashable found out. Ready for the big reveal? The new Google product is “What Do You Love?” and it’s a search service that displays a multi-media array of your results in a boxed layout. The results pull from Google’s tools and platforms — allowing you to see videos, alerts, trends, photos, translations, maps, etc. related to your search term. However, the search results are limited to Google products. That means, for example, that videos are limited to those on YouTube and photos are limited to those on Picasa. Perhaps Google will include non-Google content when it officially launches What Do You Love? The What Do You Love? page format is easy on the eyes, and some of the search boxes resemble widgets that enable you to use a specific Google function without leaving the portal. For instance, you can play videos in the YouTube box and scroll through the different video results within the webpage . You can also click

The World’s Least Marketable Skill has Value


As the dog days of summer are replaced by a chill in the air, and the boys of summer have been winnowed down to the few, the proud, the postseason victors, we choose to reflect on the best parts of playoff baseball. Cold October nights awash with excitement and dread, the tension of a two-out at bat with runners in scoring position and your favorite team behind, and (still) watching the Batting Stance Guy with his ridiculous imitations of our favorite players. Gar Ryness, the inimitable YouTube sensation known as the Batting Stance Guy, has long called it “The Least Marketable Skill in America.” Ironically, it’s turned into a boondoggle of sorts, sending him on trips around the country to perform the batting stances in Major League Baseball parks across the country as part of the pregame festivities. It has also catapulted him onto such high profile shows as CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” and ESPN’s “SportsCenter.” The “Least Marketable Skill” also netted him a book deal with Scribner, called (what else?), “Batting Stance Guy: A Love Letter to Baseball.” We recently caught up with Gar, somewhere between his numerous posts on Twitter (@BattingStanceG): 1. Tech geek or Luddite?

Al/Capone Smooth Jazz in the Social Media Age: An Interview


I try stuff. I synthesize what’s of value with some of the other things I have at my disposal. – Herbie Hancock I pursued a travel interview with the Al/Capone band because of their genius music — a medley of smooth jazz, fusion, R&B, funk and Latin sounds that makes you tap your toes, swing your hips, and wink at the person nearest you. Little did I realize that Al/Capone’s six members are not only musically gifted but they’re also technically savvy. The band leverages audio recording software in the early stages of the composition process, and they have established a wide-reaching social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and MySpace. Read our interview with the amazing Al/Capone jazz band, a quintessential study in the synthesis of traditional jazz and modern day technology. Also, be sure to enjoy music from the band’s latest album, Mr. Smooth, via the music player below and/or download a free song here. What is the best venue Al/Capone has performed at? One venue which stands out was the Water Front Festival in Rockford, IL, a big outdoor festival that is held annually around the end of August. Jeep grew up in Rockford and we had
