This is an interesting move by Google but not completely off the rocker for them. Last year they blocked search results from the co.cc domain because they believed they polluted the search results. Google plans to penalize overly optimized sites because they want to level the playing field for other websites who do not concentrate on such efforts. Basically there are sites out there that completely focus their efforts on SEO and not content and those results would rank higher than sites that don't focus on SEO.
If you were one of the lucky ones to have pre-ordered their new iPad from Apple on the day of release you might want to check your email. I just got notification that my iPad 3 or "New iPad" has just shipped and is on time for delivery March 16th. It was shipped overnight Fedex which would likely mean that it will arrive early but we will see. I will be waiting patiently for the Fedex guy on March 16th and be ready for a quick review of the iPad 3 or whatever they call it these days.
If you are a user that has an iPhone 4S with iOS 5.1 on AT&T you may have noticed your 3G symbol turned 4G. It looks like users on AT&T that are connected to the HSPA+ network are getting the 4G symbol even though it is not a true 4th generation network. Apple and AT&T made this decision because they think that the iPhone 4S is capable of 4G speeds even though it is not true 4G. With this change in place it will allow AT&T to differentiate itself from its competitors Verizon and Sprint with CDMA networks that do not offer the HSPDA connectivity. It is still however not true 4G which the next iPad will support which was unveiled on Wednesday.
