Seeing as how Dogpile includes both Google and Yahoo, as well as others...Wouldn't that, logically, be better?

Oh, and by the way, Yahoo! is powered in part by Google.

*Edit* Ironically, there was just an add for Dogpile.com at the top of PBF... :sly:

I remember when search engines became cool. Dogpile, lycos, askjeeves, google, yahoo, and a bunch of others I can't remember.

Yeah, I remember using Altavista. It crashed constantly. Why did I ever use that piece of crap...?

Then I remember distinctly the first time I was at my friend's house (him & his older brother are computer gurus) and he was like "Here, use Google..." and I was like "Google? What the heck is that?" This is back probably 7 years ago?

The rest is history.

haha yeah. I remember in 3rd grade we had some tech teacher come in once in a while and show us how to use the internet and stuff (showed us how to use the old "infoseek" and yahooligans) and she showed us google this one time when it was still in beta stages. Totally different icon and look. It was like light bluish. I can't really explain. But I still remember exactly what it looked like.

My earliest encounter with the internet was my babysitter from wayyyy back in the day. She had AOL, and I loved going to her house because she would help me use it and crap. The only site we ever went to was the Nickelodean page, and the only thing I ever wanted to do was log on to their chat room. I think they called it the 'Blabbatorium' or something stupid like that. I remember one time when she was typing for me and she started hitting on a girl who was my age. Ah, those were the days of e-crushes...
