I think Google+ does a decent job of being a microblogging platform. Here’s my latest 2 minute one-off about my current XBox addiction.
Because I got sick of stalker types (or just strangers trying to get in touch) getting it wrong, I made a Google Profile.
I am using it now. I’ll let you know if there are any serious issues I hear about/know about.
Rendering is not what I’m used to in Firefox, but I’m not surprised nor really bothered by it.
We’ll see how it goes. For work I have to keep using IE 6 anyway, so that’s not going anywhere for a while.
But I’m not so secretly very pleased to see this development. Seems to work OK with SharePoint 2003. We’ll see how it goes.
It only works for Vista and XP right now. But the rendering engine is the same as or similar to Safari’s.
Explanatory comic by Scott McCloud and the Google Chrome team (38 pages). (NOTE: I strongly recommend that geeks and interested protogeeks actually read this comic. It tells you a lot about how Chrome works under the hood, which is a good thing. It’s good to know how your browser actually works.)
Google’s apps improvements are seeming almost telepathic to me. Yesterday I was thinking (and didn’t write it down anywhere) “Gee, it would be cool if I could annotate shared items so folks knew why I was sharing them.” and suddenly today you can.
Let me just say that it would also be cool if I could add a tag set to each shared item so I can share stuff for work and stuff for friends from the same reader account.
Update: Okay uh… nevermind, the tag thing is already available. Wow.
