Feedburner Migration Failed

When Google took over feedburner I thought, at the time, that it would be a good thing, that I could monetize my feed and perhaps help pay for my VPS. The problem is the migration of my RSS from old Feedburner to new Google Feedburner just didn't work.


Chrome Extensions for Mac

Google recently launched browser extensions for Chrome for Windows and Linux but haven't yet for the newly released Google Chrome for Mac. According to TechCrunch, though, that's going to change by today.

Google recently released a 3 JavaScript tools which they are calling Closure Tools. These tools have helped Google to create software like Gmail, Google Docs and Google Maps. The decision for Google to release these tools as open-source could be a boon to many developers.

Google G1: Hit or Miss?

The Google G1 will be going on-sale here in Germany at the start of February, so I thought I would take a closer look at Google's first mobile phone. I first thought that perhaps the G1 would be a competitor to the iPhone but by the looks of things I couldn't have been more wrong.


Googling is Environmentally Unfriendly

According to an article by Times Online each search made using Google's search engine generates between 5 and 10grams of CO2! That means, since I got up this morning I have, alone, been responsible for over 200g of CO2. By the end of the day that figure is most likely to have three zeros.

Google Maps Flash API - Developer mode

I decided to start playing around with the "not so new" Google Maps Flash API. I downloaded the SDK, got my API Key and set up a simple "Hello World" type example.


JQuery Charting Plugin

I have been playing around with EXTJS for a while now and have, at the same time, been hearing quite a bit about JQuery but haven't really looked at it.
