Another crappy blog no one reads

I’m all about google right now

So google has rolled out “Docs & Spreadsheets “, not a really suprising development since they bought Writely way too long ago. In fact, in Internet time it was about a billion years ago, I figured it was about time for them to do something with it. Combining Writely with Google Spreadsheets is a good idea, why on earth would anyone want to go to two different places for those two things…I need to learn to not sound sarcastic, that really wasn’t sarcasm.
Anyway, I know this is a few day’s after the announcement was made but I’m slow and didn’t feel like playing with it earlier, but while playing with it I found my favorite feature, “publish”. It lets you update your blog strait from docs & spreadsheets, I’m using it for this post. I don’t know about you guys but the add post field in my blogging software is kinda limited, don’t get me wrong it’s good for what it does, but it just doesn’t do what I want it to. I normally just type my post out in something else and copy/paste over. With this new feature I just need to write out the post, put in all my links just like I normally would and hit one button, I can even format my post anyway I like, which is very useful if I ever feel like making this look good getting creative with my posts.
Well the only thing that comes close to my Nintendo fanboyism is my Google fanboyism and this isn’t helping that. Everything they do makes me want to love them more…now if only there was a way to update my blog from a Wii my life would be comptle…as soon as I get a Wii.
One day I’m going to have to learn to control this fanboyism…and google needs to fix their spell check, blog, blogging even google and Wii show up and miss spelled, you think they of all companies would stay on top of these things…and the feature doesn’t seem to work properly…I had to copy paste this in anyway. Way too much trouble for a feature that was in writely…and from what I’ve been told worked fine in there, oh well, this will more then likely be fixed soon, I hope

    But you see, if Google was showing up as a properly spelled word, they’d be shooting themselves in the foot. As it is now, they’re trying to get people to stop using the verb “to google” as a synonym for “to search” in order to maintain their trademark rights.

    I think the real question is, why hasn’t Google partnered with Nintendo to come out with the “Nintendo Wii with Google Desktop”? Just think of how much fanboyism that would bring out, you’d have Google and Nintendo both in one place. There’d be no need to leave your Nintendo gaming experience in order to get your Google relevance-targeted Internet experience.
