Google increases Gmail storage

Posted by: Dave In: Blog|Communication|Web

Gmail is getting a storage boost in the coming days, according to a recent post on the Gmail blog.  The storage counter will be sped up to increase in size a little more speedy than before. It’s like free money…only not quite as good. -Dave

Posted by: Dave In: Music|Web

I found a great blog post detailing numerous legal ways to listen to and download music online. From Digital Alchemy via LifeHack: Free online music used to be like the Wild West of the Internet with services like Napster dominating the field during the bubble. Now, as the Internet has matured, new models for distributing […]

RSS bloat: part 2

Posted by: Dave In: Blog|Web

I wrote previously about my rss bloat of 192 subscriptions in google reader. I made the first pass at reducing that number today and came up with 132 subscriptions. This was pretty painless, trimming stale feeds (updated lass than 1/month) and anything I havn’t read in months (whether it updated or not). My goal is […]

You see, I have a handful of feeds […]

BarCamp Houston

Posted by: Dave In: Communication|Design|Media|Technology|Usability|Web

I’m headed to BarCamp Houston tomorrow.  I hope to hang with my fellow tech-heads and learn a thing or two. I’m mostly interested in the design & usability sessions, but I’m also interested in the sessions about presenting content and team building.  It’s been tough to recruit good web designers in this town, so maybe […]

Google launches Street View

Posted by: Dave In: Travel|Web

Google has recently launched a nifty Street View feature in their Google Maps product. This essentially gives the user a street level view of the surroundings. It’s very cool for finding landmarks if you are cartographically challenged and need a building or reference point to guide you. Go to google maps and click on the […]
