Google Finance Unusable Design

    📂 Financial,Google     # ,     🗨 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 »

Facebook Like, The Big Fake

    📂 Google,Web     # ,     🗨 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.

Food on Google

    📂 Google,Health     # ,     🗨 No Comments

I'm not a health nut but I do run regularly and enjoy eating healthy food. I don't know a vegetable or fruit that I don't like, a trait inherited from my late father. Sometimes I like to look up the nutrition info on a banana or broccoli just for fun and now Google has made — Continue reading »

Kudos to Google

We'll see how far Google is willing to go on — Continue reading »

Apparently The Cars knew about Droid back in 1987 and seems like their version was more fun that Google's smartphone version of today 🙂 Yep, that's Ric Ocasek getting ready to unleash the "Pleasure Droid". If only the product and the song were released at the same time. Google and Motorola could have used this — Continue reading »

Oracle Collects on Sun

    📂 Business,Google,Law,Technology     # , , ,     🗨 No Comments

Back when Oracle acquired Sun, you really didn't think that it was going to continue with the free open source model, did you? Of course not. This is Oracle, and Oracle is all about business. It has expensive products and even more expensive support and maintenance terms. And if someone like SAP starts to offer — Continue reading »
