Flash is used a lot today. Nearly all videos and games are supported by Flash. The technology is quite slow and requires a real computer to make it work properly. It's also really buggy. But Adobe's era is coming to quite an unavoidable end. Here are the reasons.
First of all, you probably have noticed that the name is not the same. Bye bye 'United World 2.0', long life to 'Innovative Strategies'. I decided to change the name so that it would match more with what I write. Beside, I hope it will improve my SEO, which is quite terrible right now.
The domain changed as well. It used to be http://unitedworld20.blogspot.com; now the address is http://www.innovative-strategies.org/. Don't worry the old address will redirect you to the new. Once again, I hope it could make my blog more visible. For the RSS feed, the address is http://feeds.feedburner.com/innovative_strategies.
Hope you'll understand these decisions!
Google has just released a new product called Google Buzz. If you're a Gmail user, you have probably already seen or used it. Google Buzz allows its users to share status, photos and videos with their circle. In other word, it's a social network. Just like Twitter or Facebook.
Google Buzz is really similar to Facebook Lite. You can follow people just like in Twitter but you can comment any post just like in Facebook. So it's just another network. Its only key differentiation is that Buzz is synced with Gmail, which might be a major advantage for some people.
It makes sense for the most important on-line actor to have some ads on the web. But Google is to be seen everywhere now!
You might have seen a billboard promoting Google Apps on a highway or billboards emphasizing Google Chrome virtues in the subway.
Latest and not least was the commercial during the Superbowl. Yes Google paid something between 2 and 3 millions to show the merits of its search engine. Parisian love, they call it...
But what's the point?
