Java 6 Update 21 Download Available

Java 6 Update 21 Download Available

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Oracle has released an update to the Java SDK and Java Runtime Environment raising the version of both to 6 Update 21. The official download site over at the Java website lists Java 6 Update 20 as the latest version even though update 21 has been released, this is likely going to change in the near future to reflect the changes and provide download access to all visitors directly from the official download page. But Ghacks readers...

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

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

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

The Software Buttons You Love Pushing

The Software Buttons You Love Pushing

Spent several hours running around town doing tedious errands the other day in neighborhoods I don’t know well, so I was thrilled to finally tap the “Navigate To->Home” button on my GPS when I was done. It got me wondering: what are the software buttons you just can’t help but love to tap, click, or press? An informal poll on Twitter unearthed a bunch of good ones: your email’s Out of Office “Enable” button, “End Call,” “Mark...

Google Voice Open in the U.S.

Google Voice Open in the U.S.

Previously invitation-only Google Voice just opened to everyone in the U.S., offering free text messaging, multi-phone management, and voicemail features which, after more than a year of exclusive use, I couldn’t live without. The three things I do on my mobile phone most–text, call, and check email–are powered entirely by Google at this point with Voice, Gmail, and Android. The Gmail/GVoice experience on Android is the main thing that leaves me cold when I look at an...

Android Tip: Swipe Up to Extend the Keyboard

Android Tip: Swipe Up to Extend the Keyboard

Commenter seguetonowhere points out a useful Android keyboard feature I missed in my original Froyo rundown: if you swipe your finger over the top of the Android 2.2 default keyboard, it will extend two more rows out and show you keys for common punctuation and numbers. Click on the thumbnail to see the expanded keyboard. This is a faster way to punctuate and/or add numbers than tapping the ?123 key or tap-and-holding the period key. However, as seguetonowhere points out, parentheses...

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....

This Week in Google, Episode 47

This Week in Google, Episode 47

Great conversation today on TWiG with our guest Chris Messina, who dropped knowledge on the history and differences between OAuth and OpenID–which in an age of “Facebook wants to own all your sign-ons,” is an important discussion. My tip this week: to grab the Android Swype beta within the next couple of days while it’s still available, as previously-recommended ShapeWriter is no longer in the Market.

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 (code-named “Froyo,” the next alphabetical installment of dessert-named releases after Cupcake, Donut, and Eclair) is now rolling out to Nexus One handsets. If you’re tired of tapping and re-tapping the System Update menu item and getting nothing, you can update your N1 to 2.2 manually. Lifehacker runs down how. This method worked perfectly on my T-Mobile Nexus One, but I hear reports it does not work for the AT&T Nexus One. The manual update method does...

Live from Google I/O: Waving Wednesday’s Keynote

Live from Google I/O: Waving Wednesday’s Keynote

Google kicks off its annual two-day developerfest Google I/O today in San Francisco, and no doubt there are goodies in store during the opening keynote this morning from 9 until 10:30am Pacific Time. Google TV? Google Storage? Android 2.2? A better Buzz, Wave, or Chrome? You can watch the live video stream on YouTube as it happens. I’ll be in a seat in the audience at the Moscone Center, live-typing commentary in the wave embedded below, along with Adam Pash from Lifehacker, Leo...

From Facebook to Diaspora

From Facebook to Diaspora

Diaspora is a distributed, open source alternative to Facebook that a few NYU graduates want to spend this summer building. They set out to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter, and on the strength of all the backlash against Facebook’s privacy problems, the project has raised over $175,000 as of writing. Good for them. There are a LOT of existing projects doing work in this area (like OneSocialWeb, DiSo, Activity Streams), but I’m ok with a new effort working both together and in...

JRE Download

JRE Download

Thr JRE, Java Runtime Environment, contains a Java Virtual Machine, class libraries and other files that are needed to execute Java programs on a computer system. It has been designed for end users systems as it does not contain tools to develop Java applications like the Java JDK. It basically boils down to this: If you want to execute Java programs you need the JRE. It does not really matter here if the Java program is executed in a web browser or locally on the computer system as both...

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the new people search engine that’s freaking users out, because when you “spokeo” yourself there’s a good chance you’ll find your home address, phone number, interests, gender, occupation, wealth level, marital status, photos, and more. The search engine compiles information from public records and public social media network pages to put together a pretty complete profile of individuals. My local news station ran a piece on Spokeo and profiled...

How Networks Transform Culture

How Networks Transform Culture

In the past three months Anil and I have been to events in six different cities talking about Expert Labs and how the White House used ThinkTank to compile feedback on the Grand Challenges initiative. At Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored event in New York City last month, Anil absolutely killed it in a 12 minute presentation that hits the nail right on the head. Press play to check it out.

Embed Waves on Your Web Site That Anyone Can See

Embed Waves on Your Web Site That Anyone Can See

Google just released an easy way to embed waves on your web site. The Google Wave web element puts a wave on any web page–with anonymous access. That means even people not signed into Wave can read and watch waves that you’ve made public and embedded. (Wavers, here’s how to make a wave public.) Anonymous users can watch a wave change over time on your site, but they won’t be able to edit it. Let’s give it a try. After the jump, check out my first embedded...

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

Published my first opinion piece on CNN.com today, in which I argue it’s a great thing that the Library of Congress is archiving billions of public tweets. Despite some parentheses trouble and unclickable URLs in the story (I’ve alerted my editor), I’m proud of how the piece came out, even though CNN.com commenters seem to think tweets are a waste of storage space. Thanks to @matty_g, @Jason_Pollock, @Swiftsfan, and @itwalkabout for the example tweets in the story. Who...

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...

TWiG Live from SXSW

TWiG Live from SXSW

Had a blast recording the latest episode of This Week in Google in person with Jeff Jarvis and Leo Laporte in Austin at SXSW this past Saturday. We had a live audience in-studio of friends and supporters there too, with guest appearances by Matt Haughey, Adam Pash, and Jake Jarvis rotating in on the fourth mic. It was so cool to see what happens beyond my Skype headset every Saturday and finally get to give Leo a big hug in person. Speaking of Leo at SXSW, if you haven’t seen him...
