A couple of days ago suddenly I was not able to reach any web sites. The strange thing was that my Internet connection was ok, since I was able to connect to my office servers. After several tests I’ve realized that the DNS servers of my Internet provider were down.
I usually do not care about local searches and most of the content in Internet is in English. So, even when I can read Spanish and German as well, I always prefer to search in google.com, rather than google.de or google.es.
First of all. 1Password is a killer app and it has a brilliant customer support!
Since I have recently switched from Safari to Chrome, I am trying to keep using all the extensions I used to have before. One of them is 1Password.
Before switching to Chrome, it was very important to me to be able to sync the bookmarks with my iOS devices.
iPhones and iPads use iTunes or MobileMe to sync the bookmarks, and both iTunes and MobileMe take the bookmarks from Safari. So how to sync your bookmarks if you don’t use Safari?
I’ve been using Safari for years, but a few weeks ago a colleague convinced me to give Chrome a try and I did. Now I have permanently switched my default browser to Chrome. Why? Here you have my 5 reasons:
Nokia has very good hardware. There is absolutely no discussion about that. But they have consistently failed in building strong services around their devices.
According to The Next Web, Nokia has closed its OVI music subscription service since it has gained little traction during the last two years.
Squarespace doesn’t generate automatic sitemaps. Their oficial statement is that you don’t need one because Google will index your pages anyway, since the URL structure of the sites is search engine friendly.
When I was very young in Argentina, there used to be only one telecommunications company called ENTEL. A law from the congress did not allow competition in the field. So, this company was giving an extremely bad service without consequences.
I was watching the TV ads of some mobile carriers and I've realised about a common factor:
- We are the cheapest
- We have the coolest phones
So I've decided to go to a couple of mobile carriers shops in the area where I live to ask them how good is the signal in my house. The people in the shop were not able to tell me about the signal strength. They have no tool to check how strong the signal is in the area. But they do have cool phones. But how useful are they without signal?
It would be nice to have Outlook 2011 for Mac, but there is only one problem. It would cost me 149 euros extra here in Germany. What for would I use it? One word: Exchange. Other than that, it does not have any other advantage over Apple Mail and Apple iCal.
