The real impact of the Google Reader closure is that many hardcore Google fans feel betrayed. This isn’t the Google they fell in love with.

To declutter my Twitter feed but to keep on top of online ad news, I created this list of 31 sites. Have I missed anyone?

"The next time you look at a Google doodle, remember, some poor bloke slogging in the heat of Afghanistan would be better equipped if they actually paid the same rate of tax as your greengrocer."

Excellent point. Perhaps because we don't trust the government to chew gum and walk at the same time? When I question my feelings, I really don't think that there's only one priority.

I'm waiting for .ninja
 
Gurus are apparently gobbling up .guru domains.
Nevermind that the label/title “guru” has been getting mocked for years. That’s not stopping anyone from registering domains using the new .guru top-level domain (gTLD).

I'm beginning to hate infographics. It's just linkbait these days. 

A real infographic (e.g. Minard's classic of Napolean's march and retreat in Russia) show statistics in an enlightening way that would be lost if represented as text and tables. But which of these infographics wouldn't be just as understandable if written in essay form? The graphics add nothing.
