Google Gears – awesome

30 05 2007

Google Gears has been released and it seems to be a pretty pivotal application as the lines begin to blur between offline and online applications.
I tested Gears on Google Reader on Ubuntu and it worked without any hiccups.

I’ve also been following Dojo Offline and it appears they have been working to make Dojo offline work well with Google Gears.

This will be a very interesting space to watch.

Google Apps For Your Domain – Themes?

26 05 2007

My wife had been using Yahoo for her personal email for a few years. After much persuasion I convinced her to move her primary email to Google via Google Apps For Your Domain. While it is certainly functional it ain’t very pretty. I wonder if Google will allow themes via the GAFYD start page?

I know it would be a headache to allow themes for those accounts that are actually hosting a company’s info due to colors, logo’s, etc. Our account is not color or logo specific at all.

If this feature is available now I’m sure not seeing it.

So, Google, if you could turn themes on for GAFYD start page it would really be appreciated. 🙂
