Yahoo! Updates Toolbar

Yahoo! over the weekend rolled out new enhancements to their Yahoo! Toolbar for IE and Yahoo! Toolbar for Firefox Web browser add-ons. Both toolbars are available for free download from the Web portal’s dedicated site.

Updates for Yahoo! Toolbar for IE version 6.3, announced Yahoo! via their Yahoo! Search blog, include support for tabbed browsing from within Internet Explorer 5 and 6. Yahoo!’s version 1.1.1 for Firefox “improves a few things…with bookmarks, mail alerts, and Anti Spy, among other things”.

Also of note for both the IE and Firefox toolbars is the addition of a del.icio.us button, which will allow users the ability to save and share Web favorites. The button will provide quick access to a registered del.icio.us account for those who have one. del.icio.us was acquired by Yahoo! in December of last year, so the addition of this button to the search engine’s toolbar is a next logical step for introducing the service to a wider base of users.

Alexa to get supercharged with AI
Alexa can now handle multiple requests in a list.

Siri isn't the only digital assistant getting an AI update in the near future. According to sources speaking to Reuters, Amazon is reportedly planning an expansive update for its decade-old digital conversationalist that would implement a two-tier service subscription that could cost users $5 t0 $10 per month.

The new voice assistant, dubbed "Remarkable Alexa" per the sources, could arrive as soon as August 2024. The project, code-named "Banyan" after the species of large ficus tree, has become something of a pet project for CEO Andy Jassy, who promised a “more intelligent and capable Alexa” to shareholders in an April letter. The sources warned, however, that the rumored pricing and release dates could shift as we get closer to August, depending on how well the project comes together prior to that deadline.

Getting a cheaper laptop is always nice, especially if you just want to browse the web, watch videos, and do some simple online homework or type up documents. One great choice for this situation is to choose from one of the best Chromebooks, Google's pared down laptops that work well with cloud storage and have a low cost. Another great choice is to go for refurbished laptop deals, taking a gently used computer, saving a ton on it, and giving it a new life. Chromebook deals offer even better savings if you're willing to limit your selection. But the best choice just might be when you combine the two together to get a restored Chromebook.

We've compiled a list of the three restored Chromebooks over at Best Buy that are worth taking a look at. They're all under $200 and, if you're just looking for something easy to work with and don't have too many requirements, any of the three is a good pickup. For that reason, we'll list the three here for you to look at now, but keep reading for a more in-depth analysis.
