VC Guide lets anonymous startup founders post reviews on VCs

Destiny Viator

  • VC Guide describes itself as an NPS for VCs, a site where founders can rate and review their experiences with venture capitalists, the money folks who power Silicon Valley.
  • Some of the reviews rave about a particular VC, some of them describe pitch meetings that went awry and are downright brutal. VCs are allowed to respond.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

VC Guide is a new website run by an unknown entity that allows founders to rate venture capitalists on a scale of 1-10 and post reviews about them.  It describes itself as an NPS (Net Promoter Score) for VCs.

A site that allows founders to read reviews of investors is not an entirely bad idea, although we’ll have to wait and see how this particular site grows with its anonymous comments, some of them brutal. Still, as any startup founder will tell you, an investor relationship is

What is a domain?

It’s kind of like your online fingerprint — it’s specific to you. Although other websites may have domain names like it, your domain name is yours alone. However, to get the rights to your domain name, you must purchase it and register it annually, which factors into your initial and ongoing website costs.

Why does a domain matter?

Your domain name is essential because it creates an online identity for your website.

A domain name also establishes credibility with site visitors and potential customers while helping you grow your brand. It’s also valuable because if you ever change your hosting, your domain name will go with you.

Best Computer Buying Guide – Consumer Reports

Destiny Viator

Speed matters. Processors with multiple cores can process more data simultaneously, with four cores now increasingly common on laptops. Our ratings say how many cores a laptop’s processor has.

Clock speed, measured in gigahertz (GHz), along with the number of cores and other factors, determines how quickly a processor can process information. Many processors can up the speed a bit for a brief time to yield maximum performance. Generally, within a processor family, the higher the clock speed, the faster the processor. Clock speeds typically start at around 1 GHz for a mobile processor. Speeds can exceed 5 GHz for a desktop processor.

Power Consumption
Another important factor when choosing a processor, especially for laptops: Lower power consumption equals longer battery life.

If you’re looking for a very basic or budget computer to browse the web, email, and work on Office documents, basically every processor on the market should be

Guide to Making Custom Buttons for Google Toolbar 5

This document describes how to make custom buttons. Custom buttons currently work only on Internet Explorer.



What is a Custom Button?

A custom button is a push button that you can add to the Google Toolbar that can have custom navigation, search, send and update capabilities. Notably, a custom search button can use most any website’s search engine, not just Google’s.

When clicked on, a search button can perform any of the following tasks:

  • Navigate the browser to a website, like a bookmark
  • Navigate the browser to a website and run that website’s search engine, searching for the text the user has typed into the toolbar search box. For example, a Wikipedia button would go to wikipedia.org and search for the term you’ve entered. (It can go to any one of a number of locale-specific websites based on the toolbar’s locale.)
