Facebook was such a hot item a couple years ago.I remember how excited everyone was to have an alternative to MySpace. I was never really into MySpace, but the Facebook thing was really different and it was exciting looking up all my friends.
But then they started changing everything. I think the strangest thing is they decided to convert everyone by force into using a new format called Timeline. I don’t really see why they didn’t just DO IT and shut everyone the fuck up about it. They dragged this timeline conversion bullshit out for over 6 months. Get over it already!
Too bad Google is trying to rip them off. No one wants to maintain an account at Facebook and also at Google. If they had come up with something really special and different, I could see people embracing the new concept. But everyone knows its just a rip off and why change when all your friends are already on Facebook and Google Plus is dead?
Heard off the wire today about a new venture called iGoogle which will allow users to share their own writings, photos, lists and other creative efforts, as well as to give consumers personalized views of the Web through use of their geographical location and search history. This week, iGoogle personalized Web search will be available in 40 countries and 26 languages, up from 22 nations and 15 languages where personalization is now offered. Thought this was a great idea by Google just think they may be trying to ride the I name like Applies iPhone and iPod makes me wonder is Apple and Google are going to announce a partnership of some kind.
After reading a post from Ashley I decided to get in on the fun and have a say as to what i would invest in if I had a million dollars.Well easy answer what I would do with my investment I would hire a bunch of geeks and start a software company that made web standards compliant designs without having to do any work on the HTML part of the sitesomething I find I have to do no matter which software , no no just joking I would invest in Google because I belive it will one day top $1000 a share I almost kick myself every day for not buying Google stock when it first hit the market.
Well decided after writing scripts for software I would try my hand at writing a script fora play or short movie. Had some great ideas for commercials and some five minute flicks. Have had such a great time watching Google video and Yahoo video but YouTube has most of my attention now adays.
Some gadgets are simply better when you share them, and if you’re thinking of creating such a gadget, you’re in luck. By means of the Communication API, Google Desktop allows a gadget to exchange data with another instance of the same gadget on a friend’s computer. Through Google Talk, you can send and receive short strings (up to 2 kilobytes) of anything you want.
