What to Expect From “Google Me”

What to Expect From “Google Me”

My greatest hope for the hotly-rumored, might-launch-any-day-now social networking app “Google Me” is that it will not merely clone Facebook in a weak attempt at parity, but that it will innovate and solve problems that plague existing social networks. Last month, a senior user experience researcher at Google, Paul Adams, gave a presentation entitled “The Real Life Social Network.” The 224 slides, embedded below, describe some of the problems and common user behavior...

Lengthen Your Attention Span with Interval Training

Lengthen Your Attention Span with Interval Training

Email, IM and the web is a huge distraction, especially for those with short attention spans. My new friend Clay Johnson uses interval training techniques to lengthen his attention span the same way he trained his body to run a marathon. Clay writes: Paying attention, for long periods of time, is a form of endurance athleticism. Like running a marathon, it requires practice and training to get the most out of it. It is as much Twitter’s fault that you have a short attention span...

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

I’m active on a LOT of social/sharing webapps: Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, Tumblr, and to a lesser degree, FriendFeed, Delicious and Buzz. While most of my posts are public and open to everyone, on Foursquare and Facebook*, I only accept friend requests from people who I know and hang out with offline. Still, I feel bad refusing friend requests from people who listen to TWiG or read Lifehacker or this blog simply because I don’t know them. What I really want, on every social...

(Updated) How to Transfer Google Voice to Your Google Apps Account

(Updated) How to Transfer Google Voice to Your Google Apps Account

Update: Google Voice product manager Craig Walker confirms that the Apps transfer is NOT supported right now, and that it was only done for a small group of testers. Sorry, all. The good news? He says there will be a way to transfer your Voice account to Google Apps once the new GApps features that are being tested right now launch. In the meantime, I’m removing the link to the request form from this post. Update: After I published this post, Google added very strong language...

Google Apps vs. Google Accounts Parity Coming

Google Apps vs. Google Accounts Parity Coming

Google Apps users who want access to all the same products that regular Google Accounts have won’t have to wait much longer. An anonymous tipster tells me a Google Trusted Tester program is underway right now, which “transitions” Google Apps accounts to full access to all GOOG products, including Voice, Reader, Buzz, Analytics, and more. Here’s the official Help page which includes a visualization of the transition, in the screenshot here. (Here’s a PDF,...

Froyo Over-The-Air Updates Hit Nexus Ones This Week

Froyo Over-The-Air Updates Hit Nexus Ones This Week

If you’ve got a Nexus One and have been patiently waiting for the OTA update to Android 2.2, this week’s your week. Google says you’ll get a notification by the end of the week for the update to 2.2. My sources tell me you’ll get it even if you manually installed Froyo, as the official OTA version is a different build number. Here’s the good stuff you get in Froyo; no word yet on other handsets.
