Google Apps vs. Google Accounts Parity Coming

Google Apps vs. Google Accounts Parity Coming

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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...

How to Set Up OpenID on Your Own Domain

How to Set Up OpenID on Your Own Domain

For some reason I was under the mistaken impression that setting up an OpenID on my own domain, ginatrapani.org, would be a big hassle: that I’d have to host my own OpenID server software and that it would take all sorts of installation and maintenance BS to do so. I feel strongly about owning my identity online, mapping it to my nameplate domain, and actively choosing an authorizing party instead of just accepting the sign-in service du jour like Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or Google....

Tell the White House What Our Next Tech Challenge Should Be

Tell the White House What Our Next Tech Challenge Should Be

This week the White House will put out a call to techies and scientists across the internet, asking a simple question: What should the United States’ next greatest technological and scientific achievement be? Get your answers ready, geeks. When you reply to the White House’s prompt–on Twitter, Facebook, or via email–your voice will be heard and your ideas will be counted. I know, because I helped build the software that will capture your responses and deliver them...

TWiG: The iPad Episode

TWiG: The iPad Episode

This week’s episode of This Week in Google included my friend Matt Haughey. Because we recorded on iPad launch day, the conversation inevitably centered around the new device, which I didn’t buy. A live viewer told me I looked a little bored at times–and I’ll admit, since I didn’t have one of the toys to play with myself, I kind of was. Still, it was a fun discussion full of iPad love, even though Jeff Jarvis had a little morning-after regret. Continua a...

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

A few months back I bought Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog–a great book about beating procrastination that I cited in a recent Fast Company video–on my Kindle. Today I got an interesting email from Amazon. To quote: We’re writing about your recent Kindle purchase of Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy. The version you received contained some errors that have been corrected. An updated version of Eat That...

What is Google Wave?

What is Google Wave?

Over at Macworld this morning, I took a shot at explaining what Google Wave is (and isn’t). Even in a post Wave-backlash and Buzz world, I’m still bullish about Wave. It’s the best collaboration webapps I’ve ever used. Once you’ve experienced inline replies in a wave with your group, you never want to email again.

About That Google Server Breach

About That Google Server Breach

Douglas Rushkoff floats the idea that Google’s China announcement is a smokescreen for the fact that their servers got hacked–which means your data isn’t safe in the cloud. A serious and well-publicized security breach would be a crushing setback in Google’s cloud apps business. Was the China surveillance and Gmail break-in it, and we just missed it amidst all the cheering? The question mark at the end of his headline makes me think that Rushkoff’s unconvinced...

Update Your Google Account Password Recovery Options

Update Your Google Account Password Recovery Options

Now that you’re auditing your online account security, log into your Google account(s) and visit the Account Recovery Options page. Here you can update your secret question and answer, your secondary email address, and even associate your mobile phone number with your account so you can get a password recovery code via text message. (Just a tip: don’t set your Google Voice number as the phone number or automatically forward mail from your secondary email accounts to your Gmail...

Year-End To-do: Audit Your Email Account Security

Year-End To-do: Audit Your Email Account Security

Two stories of online account break-ins this week: First, Twitter.com got redirected to an Iranian hacker page because attackers were able to get into the email account registered with their site DNS service. Second, savvy blogger Amit Agarwal’s Gmail and Google Apps accounts were taken over because the attacker got access to Amit’s secondary email address and sent a password change request there to get into the accounts. Do yourself a favor: Before 2010 is upon us, do a quick...

Configure Google Apps For Your Domain

Configure Google Apps For Your Domain

There’s always lots of interest in posts about Google Apps, a lesser-known way to put Google services behind your domain name. This morning at Lifehacker I ran down some of the most important Google Apps settings, and how to do things like map multiple domains to one account, create users and groups, and configure your catch-all domain email address. Here’s more on how to Trick Out Google Apps for Your Domain. Continua a leggere – Original Link: Configure Google Apps...

Secure Your Laptop in Public Places

Over at Harvard Business Online this week, I ran down a few best practices for keeping your notebook computer–and its contents–safe when you’re out and about.

Install Prism on Linux for easy to use web apps

Install Prism on Linux for easy to use web apps

If you are a web junkie, or depend upon various web sites and services daily you know how quickly your browser can fill up with tabs. Wouldn’t it be nice if you can just use small web apps for these needs? And since that seems to be the way the computing is evolving, it only makes sense that even your every day tools migrate to – as much as it pains me to say it – Cloud Computing. Although I have been against cloud computing since back in the days of thin clients, I am...

Free Tools to Back Up Your Cloud Data

Free Tools to Back Up Your Cloud Data

Cloud computing lets you store your data in web applications and access it from any browser, anywhere—but that doesn’t mean you don’t need a backup plan. Next time your favorite web site is down or you’re locked out of an account, make sure you’ve got the crucial info you need where you can get to it: on your computer. “But I don’t need backup if my data’s in the cloud,” you say. “Big companies with lots of servers are better...

Why I Stopped Being Paranoid and Started Using Mint

Why I Stopped Being Paranoid and Started Using Mint

The idea of giving anyone my online banking usernames and passwords sends shivers up my spine. But my finances are more irregular than ever right now, so I’ve got to keep a close eye on them. For the last seven years, every month I dutifully fired up Microsoft Money (then later, Intuit’s Quicken) on my computer to balance my accounts. Now that I’m freelancing, it’s either feast or famine in my checking account, and that makes me want to jump off the roof instead...

Never Use Hotmail Inactive Webmail as Your Secondary Email Account

Never Use Hotmail Inactive Webmail as Your Secondary Email Account

Registering for an account at any web site almost always requires an email address, and some people like to use a secondary address they don’t really care about instead of their real email address to avoid spam. If you do this, don’t use a Hotmail (Update: or other free webmail) account. Microsoft shuts down Hotmail accounts that haven’t been logged into after nine months. So if you registered for your Gmail account two years ago and used your Hotmail address as your...

How Twitter Got Hacked

How Twitter Got Hacked

TechCrunch runs down step-by-step exactly how a hacker broke into Twitter employees’ accounts and gained access to over 310 confidential company documents (and generally caused them hell). Lesson to be learned: Use strong passwords (and DIFFERENT passwords for every service you use), change them often, and use impossible-to-guess secret questions and answers. I recommend (and use) KeePass for helping you do just this. Continua a leggere – Original Link: How Twitter Got Hacked Technorati...
