We hope you’ll like the new Reader (and Google+) as much as we do, but we understand that some of you may not. Retiring Reader’s sharing features wasn’t a decision that we made lightly, but in the end, it helps us focus on fewer areas, and build an even better experience across all of Google.
As I’ve written about before this sucks. There were about 10 people I regularly shared links and comments on Reader for years. In a week that’s all gone. Who knows if those people are on Google+ and all my shares and conversations are stuffed in a JSON I have no idea what I’m going to do with yet. This is just another reminder to beware of social services and to make sure to own your content. A former designer on Google Reader is actually pleading to return to the project to fix it whats currently broken.
We all — in the end — die in medias res. In the middle of a story. Of many stories.
Regardless of how one feels about Apple and Steve Jobs this is a must read. There has been so many interesting stories and thoughts about Apple and Jobs since his death his book now becomes a must read at some point soon. I’ve also heard very good things about this book as a companion to Walter Isaacson’s.
Fast and convenient, the AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker makes one of the best cups of coffee you’ll ever taste. This innovative uses the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing to produce coffee and espresso that has rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness. It makes 1 to 4 cups of coffee or espresso (enough for 1 or 2 mugs), features a micro filtered for grit free coffee, and takes just 1 minute to make coffee (actualpress time takes only 20 seconds).
If anybody wants to buy me a gift. Started making good home coffee with a french press (that I still like) but I broke my FP at my house. Got a pour over last Christmas and like the cleaner cup out of the pour. Been hearing many good things about the AeroPress primarily the speed and the lack of cleanup needed.
The four executives of DNA Entertainment Network, the promoters of the gig, were arrested on fraud charges after they refused to refund ticket money for the event. Reports indicate that around 25,000 people had purchased tickets to see what would have been Metallica’s first-ever concert in India.
Sue the crap out of them.
What the fuck is wrong with your head? “You know what, I fucking hate cover, I think I won’t use it for Gears – what the fuck, I just died this game is Bullshit”. “You know, I wanna try playing this Mario game like Sonic, so I’m going to go fast enough and the other guys should die – the fuck? I died? How is that fair”
Over a thousand scathing comments…
Players will literally be able to switch between the remastered visuals and the classic visuals in real time with the press of a button in order to see the difference more clearly. Halo: Anniversary will be a full retail game, not a downloadable, but it will only cost $40.
The music in the Halo trailers gets me every time. Best deal is at Amazon with release day shipping, a $10 dollar credit, extra skull, and avatar award for all pre-orders. The Retro Graphics Toggle is great there hasn’t been a game that has done this better. Also the new Terminals in Halo 1 should be cool as I loved the Terminals in Halo 3.
