Google Finance Unusable Design

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Financial,Google     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Sometimes one wonders if giant companies like Google ever think about their end users when they redesign their properties. One such case is Google's recent redesign of their financial site, Google Finance. There are plenty of sites around for people to track their stock portfolios, real or imaginary. But if you are a Google user — Continue reading ยป

A Simple Post-HTTP-to-HTTPS SEO Checklist

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Google,Web     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

With Chrome version 62 arriving next month Google will begin making good on the promise of warning users when they land on non-secure (non-SSL, non-TLS) sites. This will be subtle at first with a light gray warning on pages that contain any input forms. This warning message will get progressively prevalent and prominent with every — Continue reading ยป

HTTP to HTTPS Migration

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Google,Internet,Web     #     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

A universally secure internet may have its defenders and detractors but like it or not, Google is going to force site encryption (https) across the board. First it was the SEO penalty threat, supposedly giving higher scores to secure sites but it doesn't seem like that worked out great. I think Google recognized that just — Continue reading ยป

YouTube Sleep Aid

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Google     #     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

I was reading about interesting winter apps in a magazine and one mentioned was a fireplace app, so I wondered if there was a fireplace video on YouTube. That was the proverbial Pandora's box. The search led to dozens of fireplace videos ofย varying lengths but then it further expanded to thousands of videos of other — Continue reading ยป

Google Voice Gets More MMS

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Google     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

I have been a Google Voice (GV) user for years. It's been an indispensible product for me. I have the app on my Android phone, the plugin on my Chrome browser, and text/voicemail forwarding on Gmail. I don't even know my own cell phone number by heart because GV is my main number. The only — Continue reading ยป

Bait and Switch Google Adwords

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Google,Hacking,Web     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

We're all familiar with targeted banners these days. Visit a shoe site and suddenly all banners in various web sites are shoe-related. It seems the banner scammers/hijackers have figured this out too. Recently I noticed suspicious Adwords bannersย originating from a site called adnxs.com. My guess is that the malware authors use Adwords or similar networks — Continue reading ยป

Facebook Like, The Big Fake

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Google,Web     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Earlier this year this insightful article delved into the business of click farming where people and businesses (and apparently even the US government) pay shady companies a modest fee for thousands of Facebook likes, or Twitter followers, or YouTube views. Only that these likes and clicks are generated by click farms, either malware robots and — Continue reading ยป

The Web (Google) Fear

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Google     #     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Gmail is having intermittent outages today but when i saw the below page my heart sank thinking they had suspended my account. The message isย so personal: We're sorry but your Gmail account is temporarily unavailable. Seems innocent enough until you start thinking, what if it is my account only? Have I been banned, am I — Continue reading ยป
