Amazon Culture

    📂 Google,Web     #     🗨 No Comments

The tech geeks have been abuzz over a critical article written by a Google developer and leaked on Google+ by mistake. In that article, the author criticizes Google for its lack of a coherent platform and its SOA shortcomings as compared to companies such as facebook, Microsoft, and Amazon. The author has since recanted his — Continue reading »

Google Powered by ASP.NET

    📂 Google,Microsoft     # ,     🗨 No Comments

Ok, it's not goggle.com or one of the more well-known google sites but the site survey.googleratings.com is powered by Microsoft's IIS running ASP.NET. I only noticed this after I received an Adsense survey invitation with a link ending in .aspx. I wouldn't be surprised if the survey results are stored in an SQL Server database. — Continue reading »

Patents attack Android

    📂 Financial,Google,Law,Microsoft,Technology     # ,     🗨 No Comments

I'm not naive to the point of believing that Google is all good and no evil, but in this case I side with Google. What the big patent trolls like Oracle and Apple and Microsoft are doing by burying Android in lawsuits and threats is stifling innovation and taking away choice from consumers. I'm all — Continue reading »

Internet Explorer IQ

    📂 Google,Microsoft,Social,Web     #     🗨 No Comments

Tying browser usage to intelligence makes as much sense as linking hair color to sleeping habits. No doubt someone will come up with that study at some point too. So going by this study, a few years back 90% of the world was stupid and suddenly most people smartened up by switching away from IE. — Continue reading »


    📂 Google         🗨 No Comments

I like Google, but sometimes the boys over there are so over the top, like they're so special. Now they have the g.co url to shorten only their own links. Wonder how many drug kings, er, I mean coffee moguls they paid off for that domain? 🙂 But no worries. For us losers, goo.gl is — Continue reading »

Pasting images into Gmail

    📂 Email,Google     # , ,     🗨 No Comments

A great idea that was way overdue. I always liked the simplicity of copy/pasting images into outlook. Now Gmail lets users do the same. Granted that for now it's only supported in Chrome, but that's my default browser anyways. No more the old cumbersome copying, saving, naming, inserting, selecting, and finally deleting images. Pasting images — Continue reading »

Kudos to Google

    📂 Google,Hacking     # ,     🗨 No Comments

My admiration to Google for standing up for what's right. Even in the face of Chinese retaliation, Google has gone public with the revelation that the hacking activity of Gmail accounts had a Chinese connection. The allegations are as of yet uncorroborated, but Google deserves much credit for standing up to China when there's evidence of wrong-doing. We'll see how far Google is willing to go on — Continue reading »

Google Vs. Netflix

    📂 Business,Google     # , ,     🗨 No Comments

youtube, google's video site, is beginning to beef up its roster of movies, adding some big productions too, like inception. netflix shouldn't worry quite yet. youtube's list isn't as extensive and its pricing not as competitive. but when google starts to muscle in on a market, it won't be wise to ignore it either. Google’s — Continue reading »
