Yep, the big daddy of streaming media (YouTube) and the big daddy of online everything (Google) have taken to the interwebs to bring you the next thing in streaming entertainment. (They are the same company, btw.) I mean, if you get everything from Google it simplifies things, doesn’t it? (Unless you think Google is evil, and they just might be.)
Google goes in the right direction with Google Search Console. This is a reporting tool I can, absolutely, give to clients. Everyone needs to do better with our organic search. Google wants to help. With the Search Console, I believe they have.
Okay, so I didn’t need a new phone. My iPhone 7+ is just fine. Fast enough. Battery life and functionality is just fine. But… of course, Apple’s new iPhones tempt all of us Apple fan boys. So I jumped in and pre-ordered an 8 in black with 64 gigs. That was my first mistake. My […]
Apple has surfed along on the laurels of the iPhone for over 10 years now. And Tim Cook has done a fine job of keeping the supply lines going. But innovation and customer-focused successes like the iPhone or the iMac are not as easily found these days. Sure, the watch is a hit, but it’s […]
Update, Moore’s Law, April 2018. Here’s my 2012 MacBook Pro stats. I’ve got a 500 mb solid state drive (SSD). And the real miss, so far, is the processor that has not done much but nudge up the speed in the last SIX YEARS. And the touchbar is a meh design feature, and I hear […]

Support the musicians themselves and not just the mega-corp labels, lawyers, and streaming companies. +++ I know it’s an […]
Over all, at this moment 1.5 days in, the watch is a watch and a very intuitive way to interact with my phone. Responding to texts seems to be it’s current magic app for me.
Plague the Network. Social Sharing network based on viral sharing. Here is the Plague Network Cycle.
So for me, the 3rd device is a nice to have, but not a must have. Maybe the next generation of iPads will have something that changes the game even more than they already have. But I’m still thinking that most developers and creators will be using Laptops for the foreseeable future. And probably not WIN 8 laptops.
So for me, while I have GoDaddy domains coming up for renewal I will move everything to Google Domains. One more egg in Google’s basket, yes, but cutting the ties with GoDaddy once and for all will be a welcome completion.
As an email and contact platform Facebook is just “one more” device that I needed to check. Now, I’ve deleted the Facebook app from my phone, and that right there is about 50% of my distracted phone time, that I now have to do something else with.
So we’re back on the train. And my site is back on the speeding bullet train of SSD-powered cloud hosting. Take a look around. Check out the various areas of the site and see if you notice the responsiveness of the site. And if you’re in the business of web marketing, you might consider what a SLOW server is costing you.
