Facebook's at It Again: More Changes, More Grumbling (Switched)

Feb 11th 2010 8:21PM I love how people are replying here with complaints - like this is facebook and you guys have control or something... LOL

OpenOffice.Org demos ribbon-style UI prototype (Download Squad)

Aug 6th 2009 11:13PM Same here...

I've used MS Office 2007 (Mainly Word) and have found that I liked the ribbon....

Here's the catch - if you're a regular user of the old "tried and true" method - and have used it forever and a day... the transition will be tough. The longer you've used the old way, the harder the transition.

If you're not that used to the old way - the transition will be easy for you, and in fact - if you're new to MS Word or Office, period - it will be easier for you to learn with the ribbon.

Aug 1st 2009 1:52AM Will this work with gizmo like gv will?

I never completed getting a number for grandcentral, so am still locked out of gv. :(

I'd love to be making free calls.

Bubble Boom - chain reaction Time Waster (Download Squad)

Aug 1st 2009 1:35AM I was going to mention boomshine also...

But there's also "Chain Rxn" on Facebook.

I prefer Boomshine - no "lifes" - better, more soothing music and sound, and more colorful. :)

New iPhones approved in capacities from 4GB up to 32GB? (Engadget Mobile)

Jun 2nd 2009 11:49AM Remember that "expensive ass data plan" is the same "expensive ass data plan" as any smartphone on AT&T. Blackberry? Same. Windows Mobile? Same. Palm? Yep - Same.

Microsoft's beta My Phone service for Windows Mobile now free to all (Engadget Mobile)

May 19th 2009 9:54PM Still slightly better than mobileme.

Syncs text messages. MobileMe doesn't.
Free. MobileMe isn't.

However - I noted that synchronization is everynight or manually. MobileMe isn't. MobileMe is right when you change.

What Apple could learn from Palm's webOS (Engadget)

Jan 15th 2009 3:30PM With the exception of a few things - I'd have to agree with this article.

Keyboard - I don't need it. I like the keyboard. A good accessory or add on should be available though. One with a keyboard would be good too - but Apple doesn't and didn't make phones exclusively. They are new to the market, and it's entirely possible it could happen yet. Doubtful, but possible. (Though texting while doing other things is difficult. A Good Voice to SMS program would be good.)

Form Factor - I like iPhone's form factor. In Fact - Love it. Simple, clean, easy, and a good fit. No change needed.

Gmail? Just because Google has a different style than everyone else - doesn't mean Apple has to make it just like it. Apple has 3rd party development. Google is a competitor. Google has developers. Let THEM design an app to do gmail right.

Does that claim mean that G1 should have complete and full interoperability with MobileMe? What's good for the goose is good for the gander!
