Google’s growing pains with the Nexus One

It appears that even monolithic companies fail when they start dipping their hands into unknown territory.  According to PCWorld, Google’s new phone, the Nexus One, is falling subject to bad reviews for Customer Service – and the fact that it basically doesn’t exist.  Users having problems with the phone are either being tossed back and […]

Google Wave : Talk about doing conversations the ‘right way’

Google is blowing this whole communication business out of the water.  There are a ton of features in Google Wave that have been combined to create something that is just better than other communication services. Every feature of the platform was obviously thought through.  The whole time I’ve been watching the video (I’m still watching […]

Get a LoD of this: Flutebox and Beardyman

I’m impressed.  Specifically at 4:25 to 5:00 and 14:20 to 15:20 (or somewhere around there).

AT&T G1: Unlocked

The G1 is going to need to lose the whole “T-Mobile” portion of its name now that it has been unlocked for use with other carriers. The video is unnecessarily long, but it shows how simple the unlock process is. UPDATE: The G1 is painfully slow on AT&T’s network because the 3G network for AT&T […]

Google browser: chrome

Google came out with a new browser today and I got a few minutes to look at it on a Vista machine. They did a pretty good job. The first thing that came to mind when I saw it, and the first thing that comes to mind whenever I think ‘Google’, is that it is […]
