Still learning ins and outs of Google Reader
I'm realizing that while I'm remaining less forthright in flaming Google for the perceived inadequacies of Google Reader , the one thing that is getting on my nerves is a lack of help links or tutorial documentation. I stumbled across the fact that the...

Google Reader fallout (aka, "The Day After")
I was one of several hundred people who blogged their first-run reactions to Google Reader , the company's new RSS aggregator . Proving the marketing concept that the vast majority of people satisfied with a product will remain apathetic towards it while...

Initial reactions to Google Reader
The server went down for a little bit today during the 2.5 hours I've been playing with Google Reader since 5am Guam time (EST +17), and friends in the mainland said it's been like that on occasion throughout the day since it went live. I'm not sure if...

Suggestion for Google's/Microsoft's portal start pages
One thing I think would be cool for Google's personalized homepage and Microsoft's Start.com , the merits of which I pontificated about previously , would be to have an option that would read through the web part s content areas displayed on a customized...

Google's new web-based RSS reader is cool
Despite being painfully slow at the moment, I like Google's new RSS reader , naturally web-based so I can roam (I had previous concerns about Start.com in this regard). The scrolling cursor to move within a feed is really neat. I'd eventually like it...

Heads-up: Google Maps now Google Local
Google today merged the former Google Maps with its localized info service Google Local , naming the integrated service the latter. Google Local is officially out of beta, too. There's also a link at the top of the Google homepage that goes to the new...

The personal portal battle: Google's personalized homepage vs. Start.com
I've been objectively playing with and testing the personalizable portal concepts from Google and Microsoft a lot over the last week, and I'm not alone ( Ben Askins , Eric Hammersley , and Adrian Sutton have a few of the better blogged tests). I've been...
Trouble adding certain RSS feeds to my personalized Google homepage
I've noticed that certain RSS feeds hit a snag and won't add themselves into my personalized Google homepage . Specifically, I've been trying to add the following fabtasy football feeds: http://www.beloblog.com/hotreads/index.xml http://www.fantasyfootballblog...

No love for my hometown in mapping apps
This is a self-defeating argument, but it irks me to no end how I can write all these cool apps integrating Google Maps and Google Earth , but there's no representation for Guam (this is so often the case with most industries). I know it'll be there someday...

CommunityWalk: cool new integrated-mapping-mash-up-service-thingy
I discovered and have been heavily messing around with CommunityWalk , a very slick web-based mapping service, which allows for all sorts of app mashups, including adding Flickr image galleries to locales. It's got a pretty sizable amount of submissions...
