I’ve had this Casio G-Shock watch for as long as I can remember. It’s lightweight, waterproof and shockproof. Sometimes I don’t even bother removing it when I take a bath or go swimming. It’s been with me come rain or shine.
While reading news this morning, I found this cool video that showcases the actual products found in Apple’s $300 Product Design Photos Catalog
When I saw what a couple is trying to do to alleviate our current predicament of depending too much on fossil fuel, I can not help but do my share by writing about it here on iGerry.
Scott and Julie is trying to solve the problem of fossil fuel dependency in a global way by using solar energy on pavements and roadways to provide the world with an unlimited supply of energy using the Sun. You can read about it more from their Indiegogo project page or their web site Solar Roadways.
It’s not everyday that you see Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, the multi-billion dollar technology company that makes all our iPhones, iPads and Macs, deliver a Mac computer right at the doorstep.
Check out the video below and see how shocked Emma, the owner of the Mac, was.
Got my Google+ invite today. I think it’s going to be the first social service from Google that I will actually use besides eMail. Google+ has several features you’d expect from a social software like streams, photo/video/link sharing and group chat.
One awesome feature that I like about Google+ is called Circles. I think that it’s the closest representation to human social interaction. If you’ve used JoinDiaspora, it’s similar to its Aspect feature. All the social networking software that i’ve used so far, except Google+ and JoinDiaspora, does not allow multiple channel relationships which I believe is an essential ingredient to a good social software. Not even Facebook has it — yes you can classify people into lists but that’s just about what you can do.
Twitter has worked together with Mozilla to create the official Twitter Address Bar Search add-on for Firefox. Today, Twitter is announcing the add-on which enables users to have a better tool for searching Twitter.
Upon installation of the Twitter Address Bar Search add-on, you can start searching Twitter for #hashtags and @usernames right on the Firefox Address Bar aka Firefox Awesome Bar. Searching will take you straight to the search results page on Twitter.
In continuing Google’s support for HTML5, it has decided to stop support for older versions of Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari when using it’s web based suite of Google Apps. The older web browsers lack full support of HTML 5 to implement better user experience features like drag & drop, desktop notifications.
To be able to add features that enhance the user experience Google will drop support for the older browser versions (Firefox 3.5, Internet Explorer 7, Safari 3 and older) starting August 1.
Facebook has added an additional feature to increase the security of user logins by introducing what they call “Login Approvals“.
So how does Login Approvals work? First of all the authentication system is opt-in, meaning you have to enable it to be able to use it. You can enable Login Approvals from the Account Security section of the Account Settings page.
You would think that since Google has one core technology that they have really dominated that there would be a blog somewhere in Google to talk about it.
They have an official Google Blog where they sort of publish important announcements on what’s happening within Google. There’s a blog for webmasters, one for Android developers, then there’s one for Gmail …
Now they have an Official Google Search blog called Inside Search.
One thing I love about Google is the way it supports the use of clean and green technology especially in the area of power generation. Google is already using solar energy to power its data centers. Today, Google has just announced another milestone by signing a 20-year agreement to use wind power.
