#Google , please learn the lessons of the past and avoid feature creep in #Chrome .

Just today, I discovered that you were wasting system tray space (and therefore, more RAM, more processor overhead) with this new "notifications center". If I wanted something like that, I'd download an extension for it.

And, while trying to figure out how to get rid of said notification center that I have absolutely zero use for, I discover you're contemplating rolling out Google Now to desktop Chrome users. Seriously? Because i need that on my desktop? I'm sure someone will want it. I'm sure it might even be wildly popular.

But, you already have an awesome means of making sure you make everybody happy. Make it an extension. Make it a browser App. Don't make it a core part of google chrome that you force on absolutely all users.

Those of us with Android phones are familiar with Google Now. If you advertise it half-decently, those of us who want it, will get it. Those of us who don't, won't. Everyone will be happy.

If, on the other hand, you push it on everyone like you did the notification center, it'll be one more reason for people to look for lighter, cleaner, purpose-driven browsers. Not everyone will, I might not even, my own self. But, some people will. When you could have kept everyone.

#verizon  keeps digging the pit deeper. Will someone please show up to offer competitive services against FIOS? Please? I will break my contract to get away from the verizon "customer service".

I'm trying to order premium channels. You know, give them more money. And they are too incompetent to just reach out, and take the money.

I like to think I'm 3 parts angry DM to 1 part sissy DM.

Hey, EA? If you're trying to convince people to buy your competitor's products, you're doing a great job with the recent Sims 3 patches!

Seriously, I have to manually download a self-executable in this day and age? And you're hosting it as a 1.2 gig file on a server that won't give me any bandwidth?

Is there a way to give G+ feedback?

Because someone needs to inform them they've screwed up on the new profile photos...

(If you don't look at profiles often, the new profile cover-photo is about the size of my screen... It literally fills the entire screen. And that's useless.)

Worth a read, for the roleplayers I know.

+Steam has introduced a full-screen interface called #bigpicture . I don't think it'd be of any use to me (I'm no fan of full-screen interfaces when they aren't necessary), but I'm wondering what the world at large makes of it.

Well, looks like the guy who murdered multiple american citizens beat the guy who would probably murder multiple american citizens.

Let the status quo proceed unabated.
