It looks like the annual Technorati State Of The Blogosphere is going to be lacking a lot of data this year – maybe just Gmail users, but possibly many more. Google thinks Technorati are phishing.
If Twitter were really serious about the dangers of sharing access to Gmail accounts, and thus their personal documents on Google Apps, they wouldn’t continue to encourage people to hand over their email passwords just to tell their friends about Twitter or find existing friends on the service.
I know the new additions to Gmail are just tweaks, and mainly created in Google “20% time” but these little problems cause me no end of frustration.
Gmail Spam False Positives
Someone a few minutes ago sent me a legitimate enquiry via my contact form, a 100% text based message.
I do try to be responsive to inquiries that I can deal with quickly, so I emailed them straight back, and received the following delivery failure.
These are some highlights (in my opinion) of some of the content I have created over the last month. If I have missed anything out which you enjoyed or gained some value from, please let others know in the comments.
Google might well have goofed again with Gmail domain registrations. I live in Poland so this is quite comical for me, and thus the comical headline. The Polish court system isn’t quite as well organised as the US, but decisions are often made faster and a lot cheaper. What that means to Google is that they can’t throw a fit and expect a small group of poets to concede defeat, and that their size as a company might not give them any advantage (unless they know someone who can influence decisions).
Google Reader is one of the easiest to use RSS Readers currently available. The code is fairly light, thus allowing you to skim read 100s of RSS articles quickly. One of its many failings however, which I have pointed out previously was the lack of reporting subscriber counts to Feedburner.
