Another nice thing about the FreeBSD console is that you can set your caps lock key to be control, which is useful if the caps lock key on your keyboard (like my laptop at work) is next to the A key, where the control key belongs. I have not figured out how to do this on Linux (except in X).

The tips are different — and bad for users — because the services they recommend are not the best in their class. If Google wants to make it faster and easier for users to manage events, create a blog or share photos, it could do what it does when you search GOOG: link to the best services. To prevent Google from being the gatekeeper, the company could identify the services algorithmically. But if that sounds familiar, perhaps that's because Google already works that way. After all, Google is predicated on the idea that the democratic structure of the Web will push the cream to the top. Search for "photo sharing" and you should already get the highest quality services. According to Google, Picasa is not one of them.
