My Google I/O 2019 Experience

Barbara and I attended the Google I/O 2019 developer conference earlier this month. We’ve attended the conference every year since the first in 2008. I also attended its predecessor, the original Google Developer Day the year before. This marks my 13th annual general Google Developer conference, and my 12th Google I/O specifically. Google keeps altering …

Google I/O 2012 starts tomorrow morning

Google I/O is almost here, and the Google Developers have created a nifty widget for enabling the live stream of the video on your blog, as well as embedding my own Google+ stream as a Live Blog of sorts, so head on after the break for my live blog where I will post about the …

You’ll (never/possibly) need to delete another message

Remember when GMail first came out?  1GB of email was unheard of, especially in a free service at the time.  One of Google’s big selling points was “you’ll never need to delete another message.”  It was right there on the home page.  If you compare the home pages from 2004 and today for Gmail you’ll …

Google’s Code Mistake, and what they did to make it right

Saved Chrome Profiles Feature moves to Beta Build

Ever since the Profiles feature was first announced in the canary build I was excited, but it was limited (biggest limitation, these profiles weren’t saved) and the canary build was very unstable at the time. Eventually that early version moved into later builds, but the canary build updated further to allow saving those profiles for …

Want to post to lists in Facebook like you can post to a Circle in Google+? You can!

So I really like Google+ and happily post away to my Google+ Profile.  Unfortunately not everybody has access to G+ yet.  Facebook still is king of the ring, but I’ve long wanted to do what Google+ does natively, which is to say specify who should see my posts based on groupings. It turns out, facebook …

Google List Message Headers Changing – Could real Google Groups for Domains be on the way?

UPDATE: I was right, tonight Google announced Google Groups is now part of Google Apps for Domains! This morning I noticed a change in the way emails sent to a group (formerly known as list) email address on google apps for domains appear. Below is an example of the bottom of the email headers on an …
