  1. (My) Defense of iOS6 Maps

    iOS6 Maps is not amazing, which is humerously documented here, nor is it great, neither was Google Maps for iOS 3/4/5/6 and I honestly can’t believe some people would say otherwise (e.g.). I do agree Google Maps was “awesome” and the “killer app”  for the iPhone in the first couple years but there’s no way it’s still being considered as “great”.…

  2. Google Reader Apocalypse / Revolt

    greader_1000

    The day has come and the Google Reader blog has the rollout post and it’s a lot worse than I imagined. Not only did they obliterate all of the conversations I’ve had with friends within the service.

By serving feeds, we could cause a poor user experience:   1. Feeds increase the likelihood that users see duplicate search results. 2. Users clicking on a feed may miss…

  6. Traffic

    Surprsingly my traffic hasn’t suffered from the Pagerank decrease. (“This Week” just started that’s why it’s at 0″) It makes me wonder how much pagerank factors into Google’s algorithm now-a-days.

  7. Android and the Google Phone

    Big news today, Google announced Android: Android is the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices. It includes an operating system, user-interface and applications — all of the software to run a mobile phone, but without the proprietary obstacles that have hindered mobile innovation. We have developed Android in cooperation with the Open…
