Did anyone realize that there is a change in the Google logo on the home page of the world’s most popular search engine? I am not sure how many of you are aware or have spotted it, but I find that the font size is a little different that usual Google logo.
Firstly, it looks thinner. Secondly, it gives user a very ‘simple’ look (although technically nothing has changed in terms of colour). I guess, it is the way of simplifying the ways we do things.
A surprising email came into my inbox today – I was invited to join Ello. After several weeks of waiting to try out the entirely new social network, I finally could get my hands on what it claimed to be the next generation, simple, beautiful & ad-free social network.
Without much hesitation, I signed up for it and got myself an instant account. Like other social media networks (e.g. Twitter, FaceBook), I could add friends. Ello made it really simple for me by displaying some of their favourite (recommended) profiles to add (see screenshot below).
This is the first time using Ello, so I am still trying to figure out how to best make use of this social network for my daily stuff. Nonetheless, the 2 best things that come along with it are: 1) no ad, and 2) privacy, by not selling personal data to third parties. Anyway, the bottom line is, with an account, I can invite up to 10 people – so if you are interested, please feel free to contact me.
I don’t think anyone here do not know what Facebook is. Although I am not a pro-Facebook user, I have been investigating the benefits of Facebook and how it can be used for Marketing.
Just recently, I checked out the plugins, and read its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), I came to realise that there is some brand ownership involved when it comes to using their Facebook logo on your personal website. Some of which have to be approved by them before you can use them.
Nevertheless, I believe it should be safe, if you don’t tamper with the logo.
Today, whilst I was checking out randomly on a particular keyword; that is, “HOTPOT“, which I tried to surf a website [hotpot-dot-com], and guess what shows up. Yes, Google Plus!
Google seems to be buying domain names off the shelf endlessly. By then, there will be one company monopolizing the Internet, when in fact, their slogan is “Do No Evil“?
What an irony!
27-year-old Ms Priscilla Chan has officially tied the knot with the renowned FaceBook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg after 10 years of dating, since the Harvard days as students. This comes one day right after FaceBook launched its historic Initial Public Offering (IPO).
Congratulations to the newly-wed couple – Mr and Mrs FaceBook.
Today, everyone should know by now who is Julian Assange, the co-founder of WikiLeaks.
In one of the WikiLeaks archives, Cenk Uyger has managed to get a 15-minute interview with this person. Listen to his response, how careful he was in interpreting the questions asked. This is the type of video, which the citizens and public should really take time to listen to.
Now, bias aside, it’s politically motivating – make sure you listen with an open mind.
Google has recently announced that the company will be donating US$20 million to charity organisations in the world. This is truly a great news! Keep it up, Google!
Under Firefox browser, after I entered my credentials to log in, it does not goes into the Communicator page; instead, the same home page is reloaded.
When I tried this over at Internet Explorer 7.0. Surprisingly, it works. Looks like Microsoft is about to retake back its reign as the king of the browser war.
Update: Today (August 4th), it seems that Mozilla is able to work its magic to access SingNet.
