splash screens

programmers should not design

smart watch using stupid software

splash screens should not require interaction. as an indication that a program is loading, fine. bringing the program to a screeching halt is an ill-conceived idea badly executed. on a personal note, the assumption that this is my favorite email irratates beyond polite definition.

what can you do with gmail?

with gmail, your email is stored safely in the cloud. this means you can get to them from any computer or device with a web browser. you can also quickly organize and find important email, as well as read and draft email without an internet connection


strange how menus for programs are always at the top of the screen but buttons are nearly always at the bottom. screen to small? tough.

google to block ad-blockers in chrome. for safety

google engineers have proposed changes to the open-source chromium browser that will break content-blocking extensions, including ad blockers.

If the overhaul goes ahead, Adblock Plus and similar plugins that rely on basic filtering will, with some tweaks, still be able to function to some degree, unlike more ambitious extensions, such as uBlock Origin, which will be harder hit. The drafted changes will limit the capabilities available to extension developers, ostensibly for the sake of speed and safety. Chromium forms the central core of Google Chrome, and, soon, microsoft edge.
