Google Chrome

Have you tried Google Chrome? The new web browser Google has launched is very different, innovative, and fun!

"A browser built for speed, stability and security" :)

Search from the address bar ...
Type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and web pages.

Thumbnails of your top sites ...
Access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab.

Private browsing ...
Open an incognito window when you don't want to save your browsing history. (This I found especially interesting :)

"Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier." Find Out More About What Google Chrome Can Do With It's One Box For Everything Design :)

Google Blogger Updates

As of December 2008 the mass coolness of some of the Google blogger Updates is quite staggering. You can now import and export to and from your Google Blogspot blog :) Wooooot! to Google :)

Merge 2 or more blogs together into one, move individual posts from blog to blog, cross publish your posts on multiple blogs, or transfer large batches of posts from one blog to another with a single click :) Neato! Back up your blogs to your own storage or hard drive and transfer content to and from other blogging platforms as well. Just go to the Settings Basic tab of your Blogger once you are logged in.

Mobile Blogging is fairly new as well and the tutorial on Blogger Buzz explains it all.

The newest gadgets (widgets for your sidebar) at Blogspot are the Blog List (which Rocks!) it allows you to import your Google Reader which acts as a live refresher for your blog (much like adding fresh content). Display a list of other Bloggers that follow your blog with the Followers Gadget :) Add a slide show from Picasa, Flickr, Photobucket, or other slide show site from a keyword or album name with an option to open the link in a new window so your visitors can easily get back to your blog. The new subscription Link is brilliant. You no longer have to rely on sites like FeedBurner to get a subscription going from your blog :)

These listed were only some of the Basic Sidebar additions to Blogspot :) Click on the Add Gadget link in your Layout area and see some of the categories as well for things like search for widgets, News, Tools, Communication, Finance, Sports, and more.

The new Reactions addition is also brilliant :) Locate this new addition by viewing your Layout page and clicking on Layouts Area, Page Elements, Edit in the Blog Posts Element, then check the box next to Reactions and change the default Reactions if you wish :) You will need to change from Classic Template to Layout to use reactions.

Picasa for Mac and Picasa Movie editing is also exciting news.

Don't forget to subscribe to sites like Google Buzz and Google's Official Blogsite here at Blogger :)

Google Me Custom Searches

A newness to the Google Custom Searches, where you can actually create an in site or on topic special search engine customized for you, your special interest group, your business, non profit, Government, or Educational group.

You can select certain sites to add your search engine or keywords to only search for these. This is real handy for Education sites especially to block certain sites from a search session.

Google Lively Petition Awareness Livelyzens

I wanted to post this information for the Google Lively fans out there (Yes, I am one :) Check out Solum on Blog Talk Radio as this is who sent me this message:

The Livelyzens (Lively users) are coming together to appeal to Google to keep Lively alive. Lively is a great platform for interaction as well as creativity. It is easy to use, browser based, embeddable on webpages to bring a 3D experience right on your website.

While Lively has been in beta and has limited capability in terms of the objects and avatars available, the Livelyzens have been able to come up with very creative ways to create art from what is available. All this in a 3D world thanks to Google's vigilance in getting rid of rooms with inappropriate content. More than anything, Lively has become a place to make friends for life – from all over the world with wonderful people.

Please visit our website http://livelyzens.com and participate in the Lively Machinima contest we are conducting to show the creative potential of Google Lively.

Please also sign our online petition http://livelyzens.com/petition.aspx We kindly request netizens to support us in reviving a wonderful 3D world that is a kid friendly and a creative space for art and interaction amongst adults.

Everyone go check out the site and sign the petition! We did :) Blogs and Social Networks Blog Talk Radio with Stevie and Stephanie Haile aka Blogheiress and Wavecritter :)

Google Me Nutcracker Suite


"The Nutcracker Suite: An ode to nature based on Tchaikowsky's six dances. Each dance is performed by the most unlikely dancers. Fairies, goldfish, thistles and many more perform the dances, but best of all is Art Babbit's Chinese Dance sequence, with mushrooms. The highlight of the sequence is Hob Low, a little mushroom who seems to lag behind the rest of the impeccable act. Brilliantly animated by Babbit, one of the best sequences in the movie." SEE MORE

Goodbye Google Lively

Goodbye Google Lively from Wavecritterz! :)

I had to say Goodbye to one of the greatest Internet concepts to grace the stage, Google Lively :) I have enjoyed Google Lively as I know many fans of Google Labs products have. I also completely understand the ending as the creation, existence, and new beginnings of a plethora of Virtual Worlds unfold into the vast reaches of the World Wide Web.

Here is part of the post from the Official Google Blog:

"That's why, despite all the virtual high fives and creative rooms everyone has enjoyed in the last four and a half months, we've decided to shut Lively down at the end of the year. It has been a tough decision, but we want to ensure that we prioritize our resources and focus more on our core search, ads and apps business. Lively.com will be discontinued at the end of December, and everyone who has worked on the project will then move on to other teams.

We'd encourage all Lively users to capture your hard work by taking videos and screenshots of your rooms.

Posted by The Lively Team" READ MORE

We just completed Blogs and Social Networks Virtual Worlds Online Radio show and is recorded to listen in anytime.

For those of you who have not been to visit Google Lively yet, you do have until December 31st to take a peek or check out these screen shots. I went and spent some time to capture some memories:

And check out this heartfelt message from the Google Lively Team
