Make sure when you go to google.com today you check out:

"New! Get FREE breakthrough broadband with Google TiSP (BETA)." which is under the main search area. Check all the links out associated with it all - very good

Probably because it's the "in" thing to do is to Google, and I reject that for some odd reason. However, mainly it's because I still think Yahoo is the best search engine, and Google has stolen all of their thunder.

I think that is one offer I will not be checking out

and as far as Hope's comments, I use both yahoo and google and find google finds better results, especially as I use the new google scholar for work

The last thing I need is another tool bar loaded onto my computer. Looks interesting, though!

It looks legit to me, but I wouldn't use it. My C drive is getting too full as it is.

I love the 3 levels of TiSP service - trickle, #2 and the Royal Flush

And:

I'm having trouble installing or using TiSP.
Your internet connection should be working within one hour of GFlushing the sinker. If you still aren't online after that period of time, your toilet may be clogged. Please flush three more times, then check your online connection again. If you're still experiencing problems, drop eight mints into the bowl and add a two-liter bottle of diet soda. For further assistance, please visit the TiSP Help Group.

DANG IT!!!

I was not careful and my router is now in the toilet along with "other stuff" Hmmm....what to do?

Wait I just noticed a boost in my connection by 120%. I guess the "other stuff" works as wifi booster. Give that a try you all.

Those crazy folk are at it again - Gmail Paper is now also launched

Front page of http://calendar.google.com is amusing too - they introduced GooDay (or G'Day in Australia...)

I love the installation!

Installing a typical home TiSP system is a quick, easy and largely sanitary process -- provided you follow these step-by-step instructions very, very carefully.

#1 Remove the spindle of fiber-optic cable from your TiSP installation kit.

#2 Attach the sinker to the loose end of the cable, take one safe step backward and drop this weighted end into your toilet.

#3 Grasp both ends of the spindle firmly while a friend or loved one flushes, thus activating the patented GFlushâ„¢ system, which sends the weighted cable surfing through the plumbing system to one of the thousands of TiSP Access Nodes.

#4 When the GFlush is complete, the spindle will (or at least should) have largely unraveled, exposing a connector at the remaining end. Detach the cable from the spindle, taking care not to allow the cable to slip into the toilet.

#5 Plug the fiber-optic cable into your TiSP wireless router, which has a specially designed counterweight to withstand the centripetal force of flushing.

#6 Insert the TiSP installation CD and run the setup utility to install the Google Toolbar (required) and the rest of the TiSP software, which will automatically configure your computer's network settings.

#7 Within sixty minutes -- assuming proper data flow -- the other end of your fiber-optic cable should have reached the nearest TiSP Access Node, where our Plumbing Hardware Dispatchers (PHDs) will remove the sinker and plug the line into our global data networking system.

#8 Congratulations, you're online! (Please wash your hands before surfing.)


Professional Installation Service
You can also choose to request our professional installation service, which dispatches an army of factory-trained, sub-contracted nanobots from the TiSP Access Node. The nanobots travel with exhilarating nano-speed through the sewer system and into your home to perform the installation service, which should be complete within 15 minutes. Note: For your own physical safety and emotional well-being and in consideration of the nanobots' working conditions, please make absolutely certain that your toilet is unoccupied at the scheduled appointment time.

In-Commode Package Delivery
With professional installation service, you can also have your Google Checkout purchases delivered directly through the sewage network into your bathroom. Each package comes pre-sealed in a watertight and nanobot-resistant bag made of biodegradable corn-based plastic. For a limited time, TiSP subscribers who sign up for a Checkout account will receive free bathroom delivery on their first ten Checkout purchases.

TiSP for Enterprise
We're actively developing a higher-performance version of TiSP specifically tailored to small and medium-sized businesses, including 24-hour, on-site technical support in the event of backup problems, brownouts and data wipes

I mainly use yahoo just because it's my homepage, but think google is better because it picks up more search results that yahoo does.
