So Apple knows that they have built a walled garden, with oh so delicious blue dots and off-putting green ones.
Obviously Google wants to be part of this messaging game. However, every single approach since Gchat, later Hangouts, have been utter failures in the grand scheme of things.
Android's default messaging apps are probably used by a minority small enough to fit on a palm of a regular sized human hand. In most cases you either pick up Whats App or Facebook Messenger both owned by Facebook, mind you and only open up Messages, or whatever it's called, when absolutely necessary. Apple has managed to capture many, perhaps even most, i Phone users with their i Message.
And I say capture, because it really limits their options moving forwards as there is no i Message for Android, and likely never will.
It does help that the recent developments in my live have been especially fun and fulfilling.
Even if the updates are few and far between, the archives are here for others to enjoy.
I’m just enjoying life so much at the moment that I don’t get here as often as I used to.
I hope everyone out there is well and you all have a very safe and happy New Year!
It is no surprise then that Google is about to take another step securing the entire web.
The company has now announced on their Chromium blog that their upcoming browser will mark all HTTP sites as "not secure." Starting with Chrome 68, Google's Chrome browsers will notify the user, albeit not intrusively, if they are using a website that doesn't support HTTPS connections.
According to reports, Google is developing its own game streaming service that would allow users to pay a monthly fee and play all the games available in the service. Streaming is apparently Google's choice rather than hopping into processing power competition against the likes of Sony and Microsoft.
