Back in December said that they were having their best holiday season ever. This was probably due to shoppers trying to find good deals online to save some money through these hard economic times. Amazon posted their earnings to show proof and they beat almost every retailer, online and offline. Amazon's net profit rose to $225 million in the quarter of December 2008 which was a great increase from $207 million from just a year earlier.

So even though times are hard, online shopping is becoming more popular and Amazon is seeing the results from this. Do you shop on Amazon? Comment below!

Nintendo announced a remake of the popular video game Punch Out to be released for the Wii. It is planned to come out in the first half of 2009. This was announced a while back but I thought it was still great news to share. I am a huge fan of the Punch Out games and I cannot wait for this to be released.

What do you think of Punch Out being released on the Wii?

For almost an hour on Saturday morning, Google search engine displayed a warning message showing false safety warnings and Web links that didn't work. Every search showed up with the message "This site may harm your computer.". Clicking on any of the links led to a website could not be reached message.

Google said that it was cause from just a simple human error. Google updates a list of sites that could harm computers and Saturday morning an employee typed in the wrong web address causing this error worldwide.

Google usually does not have glitches in their search engine but I have noticed a few glitches recently. This was one of them. I think Google does a great job at making their website glitch free and user friendly. What do you think of this error that happened?
