With the huge screen real estate of the X, I had ceased to even regard it as just a phone and had upped my usage exponentially of Teh Google products. Now, I am back living the lifestyle that all the Democrats want us to lead. Which is to say, the suck lifestyle.
Probably the biggest change in Teh Google products this past week has been the updated Contacts interface in Teh G-Mail. True, there is a slightly different look to G-Mail, but the contact list is completely revamped. It is a welcome change, too.
By the way, I had no idea that I had actually been using G-Mail since April of 2005. Wow, five freaking years.
And with the change to G-Mail, Teh Google has also decided to try to utterly kill of the older versions of Internet Explorer. Remember when I started coding my business site and told y'all about the problems with IE on that simple, little site? I think that the problems Teh Google has with IE might be a little more complex than mine are. FOR THE VOLUME!!!
Not only has Teh Google made big changes on G-Mail, but Blogger has been getting a facelift, too. When I first started blogging, Blogspot was easy to learn, but had very few features. All of that is different now, and Teh Google is making it harder and harder to turn away from Blogger, now. That is what customer service is all about and it is weird that I am not even paying a penny for this service!
The new comment thingy on Blogger is still a little wonky, but I am certain that they shall figure out the hiccups really soon. On this here blark, I notice that when I go to click on the "Comment" link, I get a pop-up for the comment and the page reloads to the comment page, too. That pisses me off no end, so I have not been commenting as much the last few days. For that, I am sorry.
Teh Google has also updated their Font Viewer, too. I do not use a wide variety of fonts because most of my stuff is online. In that scenario, it is best to stay with typical fonts that everyone has. Plus, it simplifies life. That is ALWAYS a good thing for me.
I have no idea if Teh Google Moderator is new or not, but I just ran across the post on this service yesterday. I have not had a chance to test it out at all, but I was researching FORUMS for my business site to get more input. Teh Google Moderator is what I found. I am going to read more on it when I get a chance tonight.
Also, AdSense is implementing some updates, too. I have only had a couple of "BIG" months on AdSense, but I am certainly going to try to start following the money on the webbynets. If there is money to be made doing this blogging thing that I enjoy so much, I would certainly like to make it. No brainer, huh?
Teh Google Small Business Blog is releasing some tools for online success for small businesses. Imma all up in dere. Here are the tutorials.
Teh Google Enterprise also has a response form update. It seems REALLY wonky right now. This might be a wait and see type thingy, but if you are adventurous, get all up in DERE. By the way, these sucky updates are what makes Teh Google stuff so much fun for me. The FAIL is built right into the product from the jump. Crash it when you get it is what I am all about.
As good as the OCR in Teh Google Docs WAS, it is even better now. Plus, there are even more conversion types that kicks Bill Gates even more in the shinbone. Granted, Teh Google is much more powerful than Microsoft is now, but still, it is kinda fun to play like they are not.
Oh, and please do not forget the new curve tool in Teh Google drawings.
Also, in BROWSER news, I have added a coupla' stuffs to my Firefox recently. With the coding of my business site, I added Firebug so I can instantly see how someone did certain things on their site. I can look at their code, jack it around, and make it my own if I want a feature similar to theirs. It is really, really cool.
Plus, I added SEOQuake to help me figure out what some of the higher traffic blorx are doing to direct that traffic. It is a little harder to figure out, though. Boy, building traffic is NOT easy as falling off a log, so I guess that content, link building, and guestposting really ARE some of the best things that you can do to build your following.
Plus, throwing in the word NUDE on occasion doesn't hurt, either.
Please take the time to comment.
