Two Web Relics Are Being Killed Off

Sometimes you have a feeling of fondness for old technology.  Something you’ve used for years, or used to use years ago, that may not be the newest thing out there, but you like it none the less.  Like your old faithful dog, that follows you around all day destroying your slippers.  It smells a bit, […]

Week of Safari 4 – Day Two, The Interface

It’s day two of my week with Safari 4 and after my initial impressions, I thought this would be an opportune moment to discuss the interface changes Apple have pushed out with this release. Tabs It’s difficult to discuss Safari 4 without talking about the Tab placement. Following in the footsteps of Google’s Chrome browser, […]

Am I too old to change browsers?

Google Reader Adds Annoying New Feature

I’m a big, nay, huge fan of Google Reader.  I love the fact that it’s a one stop shop for all my feeds which i can access on any computer, my phone and even my iPod Touch.  The best thing is, it works and looks great on all those platforms.  A very difficult feat to […]
