Google APIs & Developer Products – January 2011

Screen shot 2011-01-27 at 17.13.32.jpg 

They’re a behemoth with a massive amount of APIs that millions of developers use around the world to build millions of apps and services. There’s simply no good way to keep track of them all.

A really great way to show all the available ways of plugging in and out of the google and the stuff they do.

Is Mobile Affecting When We Read?



Readers want to consume content in a comfortable place, on their own time and mobile devices are making it possible for readers to take control once more”

An interesting article via Is Mobile Affecting When We Read? « Read It Later Blog.

Personally, I am waiting for the article that links this with the effect on content/the way we communicate.

Could this perhaps be the start of a switch back to longer form?

In summary:

iPad owners no longer do most of their reading on their computers, they are saving it for their ‘personal prime time’

We are bombarded with articles/content all day long

We save articles for later reading all day long, decreasing in the evening

We consume (saved) articles on our computer all day long with a drop during the home commute and a slight rise in the evening

iPhone users mostly consume saved articles on the way into work, during coffee, during the commute home and at bed time (no surprises there)


In the new spirit of blogging…

The US Patent office doing what it does …. well what it does.
