In this installment of “My Featured Website” I will be talking about a website that most people know about and have used at one time or another, that website is youtube.com. This is the worlds largest and most popular video sharing and watching website. A little fact about you tube that most people don’t know is that youtube.com is the #3 website in the world (at the time this article was written) as far as the amount of website traffic (visitors) that youtube.com gets. It might be hard to believe that youtube.com is the #2 website in the whole world, but it is. Microsoft’s big search engine website bing.com is only #36 in the world. Youtube.com is behind Google.com in the number 1 spot and is currently ahead of Facebook.com in the number 3 spot in the amount of visitors to their website. Youtube was created in February 2005 by three former Paypal employees. Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim created Youtube after having trouble finding video clips of Janet Jackson’s famous 2004 NFL Superbowl incident and of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that killed almost a quarter of a million people. They wanted a video file sharingREAD MORE !
Well another NFL Super Bowl is behind us and the New England Patriots came out on top to become the champions of NFL Super Bowl XLIX (49), topping the Seattle Seahawks 28 to 24. Although this Super Bowl started out slow, it ended in a very exciting way to give the New England Patriots their fourth NFL Super Bowl championship title out of eight appearances. The Seattle Seahawks, although losing Super Bowl XLIX to the Patriots, played a very good game and one fitting of a championship NFL football team. The lucky people who saw this years NFL Super Bowl, Super Bowl XLIX (49) between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks saw one of the most exciting Super Bowl’s in recent history. Most NFL Super Bowl games are either a blowout or are very slow seeming like both teams are afraid to do something wrong. This NFL Super Bowl started out like it was going to be a slow one but as the game went one, it got better and better, leading up to a finish fitting for a championship football game. The first quarter was slow and although Tom Brady and the New England Patriots wereREAD MORE !
I’ll start this article off by saying that I am a big NFL football fan. I have been watching the NFL on TV since I was in kindergarten when I would watch the games with my grandfather, who I called Papa. All growing up I was a Dallas Cowboys fan and most of the time you saw me I was wearing a Dallas Cowboys t-shirt or cap/hat. That was till it was baseball season at which time my sporting attire was that of the Los Angeles Dodgers Major League Baseball (MLB) team. Anyway, back to football. I have been an NFL fan all my life and even though I don’t get to watch as many NFL football games as I used to or would like, I still like to catch as many of the post-season (Playoffs & Super Bowl) as I can and especially the NFL Super Bowl. This year I didn’t get to watch that many NFL football games so come time for the playoffs, I made every effort to get my NFL fix and watch as much as time would allow me to watch. I didn’t get to catch all of the playoff games as IREAD MORE !
These days there are many distractions that can get a driver of a car, truck or whatever distracted. Everything from messing around with your stereo to checking Facebook on a Smartphone can cause a driver to take his or her eyes off of the road while driving which in many cases can lead to an unexpected accident. Another thing that can cause a driver not to have their eyes on the road is tired and sleepy driver. Many people drive when they are very sleepy and have a hard time keeping their eyes open and paying attention to the road ahead of them. Well there is a new Australian company called Seeing Machines that has developed a new technology that will help distracted and sleepy drivers keep their eyes where they should be, on the road ahead of them. Seeing Machines of Australia has developed a driver sensing system with an infrared camera mounted to the vehicles dashboard that works with software running in the car to evaluate whether or not the driver of that vehicle has their eyes on the road ahead. This sensing system evaluates the drivers head position, their eyes blink rate and even theirREAD MORE !

Well in this installment of “My Featured Website”, I thought I would feature Newegg.com. One reason I thought I would feature this website is because I love electronics of all kinds, especially computers and Newegg has tons of awesome things for an electronics enthusiast to check out. If you love electronics, especially then this is a MUST SEE website. Newegg has been around well over a decade and is one of the top online electronics retailers, specializing in computer hardware and software. I have been shopping at Newegg for quite a while and they always have great prices on the products they carry. What sets them apart is how great their customer service is and how well they operate. If you ever order anything from them, it is shipped out very quickly and very well packaged. This means a lot since they sell a lot of computer hardware that doesn’t respond well to being handled roughly. I have never received anything that had any damage of any kind. Kudos to their packaging department! Recently I had decided to upgrade my RAM since my sweet Lenovo laptop computer was lagging a bit due to me using way too manyREAD MORE !
I have to say that I am the type of person who does a lot of web searches. I am always looking for information about one thing or another. Google, Bing, Yahoo and Duckduckgo are my usual search engine websites of choice but I do stray for one reason or another. I am the kind of person who starts out looking for information on one topic / thing but then I see something and that leads me to doing a web search on something else. To tell you the truth, I was just doing some searches on testing the speed of which a website loads (I’m always doing mods to my website to improve it’s speed and improve my visitors viewing experience) to see where my website is in terms of page load speed (ulterios.com is actually pretty fast compared to other sites). One thing lead to another and while doing a Google search I came across some articles on the most searched topics on the internet for this year (2014). Now after doing some research I had found that Google had released their most searched for topics of 2014 and I have to say that most of theREAD MORE !
