Google Hotpot finally (and fully) merged into Places (Download Squad)

Apr 8th 2011 9:27PM @Avian

Except this wasn't any sort of buffet or communal gathering centered around food, it was a rating and review system for different venues. Also, most people looked at the word and instantly saw "Hotspot" instead, which was a big issue since "hotspot" actually fit the service more than its own name did.

At the core of it, the biggest issue was that it simply didn't need its own name. It was aggravating to users because it was little more than an extension to Places, yet it had its own name. The line between the two was thin at best, and when using the mobile Places app, there was no line at all. I think a lot of the animosity toward the name Hotpot itself was due to this.

Jan 20th 2011 11:38AM @jValdron haha, yeah the whole Droid nomenclature is confusing to pretty much everyone, I think. Technically, the device name for the plain-named Droid family that has a CM7 build right now is "Sholes."

Dec 17th 2010 4:04PM @Brian Kennish Awesome! I'll update the post right now :)

As for pictures in comments, the whole system is still wonky, as we're barely finishing the new redesign... so I'm at a loss for now.

Dec 15th 2010 6:14AM @SilverWave Interesting, so the option just doesn't show up in your settings at all? Have you tried while signed into only one account?

Dec 14th 2010 9:36PM @Brian Kennish Haha, now see, I was thinking that the Reader bookmarklet was what had already been addressed :) Oh well, either way, it's been accounted for now!

Thanks for getting back to us with that info, Brian!

Dec 14th 2010 1:01AM @BugMeNot Yep, I guess it's really just a matter of time for all of these sorts of things. It'll be interesting to see how this particular extension shapes up over the next couple of months, and then we'll really know if it's up to task or not :)
