While Facebook has grown to over 800 million users and counting, the war will continue to wage on in 2012 with many of the large technology companies like Google, Apple, and Amazon. Don’t be surprised if there never is a clear winner, because the market seems to at the moment be able to support the amount of large businesses grasping at the market share.
However, just like Google Chrome overtook Internet Explorer 8 (keep in mind that Internet Explorer dominated the browser market all through the 2000’s) at the end of November 2011, there is always a possibility for Facebook to grow even more popular and influential than the company already is. The 2012 battles include but are not limited to: Continue reading
On November 30th, 2011, Jean Marie Simonet wrote on the Joomla community blog:
“We plan to release Version 2.5 beta on or before December 20th.”
The upcoming non-beta release is scheduled to be released in January of 2012, but it looks like Joomla addicts will be able to get a taste of the new 2.5 version of the popular CMS.
The new features have not been announced, but Jean writes:
“To make this schedule, we have until December 12th to propose and test new features. “
Does this mean the developers are keeping a lid on the new enhancements (other than improved search) because they are not ready? Or are they not exactly sure what addition will be made? Either way, hopefully the Joomla developer team can meet their deadline so all of us Joomla enthusiasts can see for ourselves what all the fuss is about.
Think you’re ready for Joomla 2.5? Make sure you’re prepared!
This November, WordPress 3.3 will be released after months of beta testing. With the new revision come some new improvements that will improve the already great CMS. Now keep in mind that some of these improvements will help improve the CMS, but others may be considered some minor GUI improvements that may not even be noticed. Continue reading
2 weeks ago, Gmail Launched it’s native application for the iPad, iPhone, & iPod Touch devices. However, hours after the launch, Google had to pull the app from the virtual shelves due to several flaws, including a bug that broke iOS notifications. The application also got slammed in the reviews for its lack of functionality.
On a blog post posted on Google’s Blog today, Mathew Izatt States:
“Two weeks ago, we introduced our Gmail app for iOS. Unfortunately it contained a bug which broke notifications and displayed an error message, so we removed it from the App Store. We’ve fixed the bug and notifications are now working, and the app is back in the App Store.”
Version 1.0.2 fixes the critical bugs, but does not add any new functionality to the application. Also, Gmail for iOS still does not support multiple accounts and still does not host email on the user’s device.
“We’re just getting started with the Gmail app for iOS and will be iterating rapidly to bring you more features, including all the ones listed above plus many more.”
Hopefully we will see these new features soon.
