There’s a few tings that have been bugging me lately and I need to rant about them a little.
Google Apps (Google for domains)
I’ve been using the service for both my domains for about 2 years at first I thought it was pretty nice. The web interface was better than most website give you and with it I can POP my other gmail account,hotmail,yahoo, and Att accounts. But its just me who uses it so I don’t use any of the shared features (calendar,contacts,etc) and I have my sites hosted elsewhere because I run wordpress.
The biggest issue I have is that you can’t use your Google Apps account with any of google’s other services (comments on blogger,google voice, google reader,buzz,Picasa,google friend connect,etc) So I have to keep switching between my two accounts depending on what google service I want to use. Its getting to the point that I’m going to stop using google apps and just let my standard gmail account POP from my webhost. I’ll just have to check if there is a different in the amount of storage between gmail and google apps.
The second issue is sort of related to Google, its Blogger’s comments and default template.
I browse and read ALOT of blogs, whether its from Entrecard ,CMFads,twitter, or rss feeds I browse/read a lot of sites. I’m trying to get better at leaving comments, but I’ve about had it with bloggers comment system. First I have the issue with having to use my gmail account not my google apps account to leave the comment, second most of the time the comments aren’t even inline. I don’t know who to blame on this one, google for using such an awful comment system or the blogger for not changing the blogger template so it doesn’t look like every other blogger site or at least using a third party comment system like Disqus.
Third and last the iPad
Seriously people, will you by any garbage that Apple puts out? Its a 9 inch iPhone! I have an iPhone myself (Att sucks, iTunes sucks) but the phone itself is pretty sweet. But to spend $600+ on a over size iPhone is crazy! Yet every major tech site and twitter is all lit up for tomorrow when these things go on sale. Most of my iPhone apps have been updated to support the iPad. If it had a webcam or a stylus so you could take handwritten notes on it maybe I could see the hype. This just feeds my dislike of Machead how they will follow Mr.Jobs like sheep.
Its little things, but they have just been bugging me for a while now, so I thought it would be good to get it out. I feel better now 🙂
