25 Dec Best Buy Online Checkout Waiting Room? Whaaaa

I was browsing Reddit while sitting on my overly fed arse here on Christmas day and came across this form a Best Buy shopper. I imagine that Best Buy is getting their fair share of shopping traffic all month long, but never ever have I seen a "waiting room" for an online store.

03 Oct Google Trusted Stores Launched-Meh

So I'm not sure if you've heard that Google launched its Trusted Stores recently and while it's not needed, Google will certainly stick its head into something else.

18 Mar Google Owned Like.com Outranked By Content Scrapers Post Panda

We're currently in the middle of submitting a clients feed to a few product comparison search engines, and I stumbled onto something slightly amusing.
