Silverlight cool...
If you want to learn a bit about it try this

Google Maps upgrade.

After a big hit from Microsoft`s bird`s eye view and the 3D maps...Google comes back with a 360 street side view. Pictures speak for themselves.

Microsoft IE and Google Reader just don`t mix..

I opened the page today and did a search on blogs. The search gave me 1000+ blogs nicely categorized and an opml file that contained all those blogs...Hmm...1000+ blogs...let`s see how Google Reader handles it.
Opened Internet Explorer. Google Reader. Import...Imported the file with no errors and then...a sudden stop. Google Reader just got my processor up to 100% and stood there. Tried to tag some of the response..Hmm...
Opened Firefox. Google Reader. Import...Imported the file with no errors and then..hmm..I can still do my work...I can still tag every entry...I can still read the latest posts..
Is it that Firefox is simply better or is it Google`s use of Ajax not well supported on IE?

Killer App

Gmail Upgrade

I`ve been using Gmail for a while now and whenever I needed to send a big attachment I just used a dedicated service like . Now with a 20 MB limit I will probably still use the same service as it allows me to transfer a lot more...and also the fact that other e-mail users might not get my e-mail because of the attachment size...
Overall a good upgrade but not such a big help..
