Scratchpad Is Moving to Google Keep
By Dinsan Francis, 11/05/2013

In a no-surprise-here move, Google has made it official that Scratchpad will be moved to Google Keep. This was an expected change because Google stopped development on the official note taking app Scratchpad a couple of months back.

Use these things at your own peril. If you don’t own it, then you better be prepared for it to disappear some day. Google Reader going away is a big loss for me.

SERVICE: YOUTUBE and “free” IPAD software

Saturday, March 10, 2012

What’s wrong with the inet, the iPad, YouTube, and iPad clients?

Playing around with this stuff, I realized that google search is flawed. They drop a load of results. What I want is a curated list.

For example, in fooling around with an Alzheimer’s infatuation with Taylor Swift, did a search for her on the inet, YouTube, and such.

What a mess?

The results are not pretty. No taxonomy. No authenticity. Must drive her lawyers crazy.

“YouTube Presents Taylor Swift”

How useless is that?

They don’t “remember” where you are in a list, drop out and restart, and have User Interface that can be bewildering.

Here’s what I want.
