Interest rates

It's been a while since I shopped around for better interest rates. For a while, E*Trade Bank seemed pretty competitive, but I'm hearing a lot on other finance sites about better rates out there now and it may be time to make a switch. I have more cash on hand than I probably should, but I've been thinking I should keep it available in case I do find an apartment to buy. I have some in a money market, and some in a 3-month CD and a 6-month CD. I've just been letting the CDs roll over, though with my longer term ones, I do check for the best rates before letting it automatically renew... but I think I need to be a little more hands-on right now... if anyone reading this has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
