A user workflow bug that results in users losing Incognito windows on Mac and Windows when running an in-place fix. While this is by design, there should be warnings when users update in-app that Incognito windows will be lost during the dynamic update process.
As ICANN considers Google’s applications for gTLDs, I’d like to talk about how their existing policies on ccTLDs need changing, in light of this change in status.
This is a technical article, folks. But, it matters to how people use search engines… just, at a technical level.
This is an article for developers, or those of us that play developers on TV. If you aren’t either, you may want to skip this one… With Google offering its own form of Ubuntu to its employees, I really wish Google would offer a compiled branch of Ubuntu specifically for creating and building both Android […]
I’ve tried valiantly, since the day OS X Lion was released, to get used to Versions. And, I can’t take it anymore. I finally penned Apple a passionate request to offer an off switch. I do totally understand why Apple does not want to offer an off switch. Apple wants Mac users to get used […]
I’ve moved away from Google FeedBurner. So, it’s time to update your feed URL. If your feed URL is http://christopherprice.net/feed/ then you’re all set. If not, you need to update to that URL. I’ll keep the old FeedBurner setup working, but you may be delayed by as much as several hours to get news. Yeah, […]
I will start this article by saying that we don’t know everything that will be in iCloud just yet. However, I will say that I am disappointed at the pricing that has emerged on other web sites (here’s just one for example). At double the pricing for Amazon’s Cloud Drive, I can’t say I’ll be […]
I’ve been going to CTIA Wireless Expo for many years now. This will be the first year since I started attending that PhoneNews.com does will have any presence at the show. And, as you may have noted, PhoneNews.com will be suspending the display of advertisements from Google AdSense. We took a careful look at CTIA […]
I’ll keep this one brief. I’ve noticed issues with older Google Analytics tags. They report receiving data, but they aren’t working right. Some of the issues are really sporadic. So, just update your Google Analytics tags if you aren’t using the latest generation. That appears to be the cure-all. Mkay?
While I suggested mainstream techies avoid Flash 10.1 Beta 1, the new beta is much better. 1080p YouTube now works flawlessly in Windows and Mac OS X. It’s actually quite impressive, especially considering Apple won’t let folks author QuickTime X plug-ins. I do have to take this moment to warn Apple that 2014 could very […]
I had to vaporize all cookies in Google Chrome today, because Google kept defaulting to www.google.com.pr instead of allowing me to switch back to www.google.com. It appears this problem is mostly limited to anyone (and everyone) that pulls up Google while traveling to Puerto Rico. When you travel, Google loads up the in-country version of […]
