Link Farm – Xbox 360 fails, Google fails and Microsoft reveals that Windows 7 will be free (just kidding)

On the World Wide Web, a link farm is any group of web sites that all hyperlink to every other site in the group. Although some link farms can be created by hand, most are created through automated programs and services. A link farm is a form of spamming the index of a search engine (sometimes called spamdexing or spamexing).

So from the title of this post you might as well think that the world is going to fail, but ….. no. I’m starting with something more political (sorta) and more positive (ish).

The first link on the list is about something the Obama White House has been pushing. No not healthcare, not Afganistan (think tech stuff). Its about rural broadband, or as the Ars Technica story puts it Rural broadband = more jobs, better salaries

Next on the list is a Google fail. With the recent announcement of an improvement to the contextual ads system the Silicon Alley Insider made a list of the worst contextual ad fails by the big G and its pretty funny.  Google’s Worst Ads Ever (GOOG)

And then there is the Xbox fail…. the SuperSite Blog recently posted results from a survey that conclusively says that the Xbox 360 has a 54.2% failure rate….ouch. That hurts no matter how you slice it. Being an Xbox owner of 2 weeks this survey dwindes my confidence…. yeah….. Xbox 360 failure rate is 54.2 percent
