Other Google stuff for me!

I made a list of all the Google stuff I use about a week ago. Well it just got bigger! I’m now a member of Orkut, Google’s social community. Invites are available so you can always email me it you’re interested.

GMail invites are also available. Email: kcassimally at gmail dot com

Tsunami Relief

Well Google just got even better! It now features its own help page on its homepage. Click here to visit.

Tsunami – please go and help

I beg you, please visit this blog. And try to help where possible.

FireFox OFFICIAL blog

You know Google Blog but what about FireFox blog?

By the way, I downloaded the browser – couldn’t resist. It’s real good. I’m hoping that version 2.0 will get even better.

FireFox and Mozilla

I just realised that there isn’t only Google which has an expanded view for the future. Mozilla, developer of FireFox (internet explorer) is also a great ‘company’ which wants to become big – and it is already big.

Download their internat browser, FireFox here. I haven’t checked it out personally but I saw it at work and it seems great. I’ll give you an update on this matter in a week most probably when I’ll download the browser.

Get Firefox!

Observations on Google Print Falling Down on the Job

Well doesn’t look like Google is perfect. One of their numerous BETA sites, Google Print, isn’t up to the standards according to these writers. They say that Google is not responding and that they are taking too much time before processing their books and all.

Evidently Google Print is in the Beta stage–BETA with capital letters, that is! It has been about a month since Google Print received both my books, but they do not appear in Google results. Books are supposed to appear when one does a search in Google on: Books on (title here). If one searches on any subject, not many books appear, period, meaning that Google has not scanned in many books yet.

So far I’ve had to re-enter my tax information because Google Print lost it, or deleted it. Also, a week after I sent my books, their status went from Pending to Processed. Then, however, one book dropped back to Pending. It is the one book with pictures, so I’m thinking that perhaps Google did not think their scans of pictures were satisfactory.

Perhaps Google Print ran into copyright and Fair-Use Act difficulties. Who knows?! Because I emailed Google Print several days ago and they still have not responded back.

Google Print needs to send out a mass-mailing saying, “Hey, we screwed up, and it’s going to take us three weeks to work through the backlog we created for ourselves. Sorry!”

Yoel Natan

Yoel eventually got a reply afterwards informing him that 1 of his books has now been processed. But what about the other one?
