Hubpages and Squidoo combining!

Squidoo and Hubpages are two websites where registered users can post complex articles about very many topics. according to the announcement post on the Hubpages website, Squidoo features will be integrating into the existing Hubpages.com site.

 

I have actually typed stuff up for both sites. The one feature that I hope gets into Hubpages is the adventure badges. Two of them both use various media boxes that make up the articles (Text, picture, embed video via Youtube). Basically helps with structuring your articles.

Changing the rendering engine to something called Blink. Changing over from WebKit. There are also changes dealing with notifications on the Windows desktop OS. Security updates as usual.


So I uninstalled Google Chrome…

After experiencing so many  crashes with the past two versions (26 and 27) of Google Chrome, I decided to uninstall it completely from my main computer. The  isolated crashes feature stopped working and with each new update of Adobe Flash, the crashes became even more frequent. I watch a lot of streaming video via Flash Player. Only used two add ons from the Chrome App store.

I’m actually typing this up from Opera Browser.

So if you’ve logged on to Google Reader in the past few days, you’ve probably seen the prompt below:

The End of Google Reader

While I only really use it for tracking new “podcast” episode releases,  this means I’ve going to have to go back to a desktop client. Hopefully there’s a way to export the subscription list.
