The Verge: Why Google’s Pixel phones matter.
I’ve reluctantly become a daily Facebook user recently and have run into an issue where it seems like Facebook events just don’t pretend to even function as normalized calendar events and therefore don’t interoperate with systems based on iCal. Am I missing something? 🙂
I’m hoping that given this era of actual accountability in IT and citizens caring about their data more I would expect that these kinds of proprietary systems will start working better with universal standards.
Go, ISO! 🎉
It seems really silly to me that there’s not an easy way that’s officially supported to record phone calls on smartphones. Privacy concerns amount to paranoia in this case. There is much practical value in recording phone calls.
The Verge: Google’s Inbox app is shutting down in March 2019.
Well, I guess this makes sense. Recently I did find myself using both Inbox and Gmail for different purposes; I used Inbox for a quick triage of stuff and then use Gmail for composition and search functionality. I didn’t know what Google’s roadmap for either of these apps were so I thought they could be used complementarily. However for simplicity’s sake it seems like just using a single Google e-mail app make sense.
I’m still holding out for the next incarnation of Google Wave!!! 🤞🍀🦄
Thank you, Siva Vaidhyanathan!!! 🙂 May the light you provided to us help us find our way to a much more enlightened place. Soon. 😁
😂 I can’t get over this headline.
WIRED: Google Wants to Kill the URL.
In this case murder might not be so bad. 🙂 But who else thinks this title is unnecessarily provocative??
It’s 2018. 🙂 Why am I unable to address an e-mail to an extant group of recipients from my Google Contacts? Am I missing something? How do they market themselves to organizations without features like these? It seems fundamental or at least something inevitable whose time should have come long ago. 🤔
