Something goes here but I don't know what I want to write. So I'll just leave it at this.

(My) Defense of iOS6 Maps

September 24, 2012

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”.

Google Reader Apocalypse / Revolt

October 31, 2011

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. They’ve removed the notes I’ve made on shared posts. Technically both have been preserved through some strange Buzz Google+ connection but not […]

Chrome … on Mac

June 4, 2010

iPhone 2.0 Apps

July 10, 2008

Here’s a screen grab of all the apps I’ve downloaded already. I can’t give any full reviews just yet; no time and I haven’t played with them all just yet. First impressions though: AIM: Why did I download that, I don’t use aim. Looking forward to a GTalk (native) app, the special iPhone web version […]

Google removing feeds from search results

December 18, 2007

It’s about time… As a webmaster, you may have been concerned about your RSS/Atom feeds crowding out their associated HTML pages in Google’s search results. 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 […]

Traffic

November 18, 2007

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.

Android and the Google Phone

November 5, 2007

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 […]
