Today is the last day of the Google hosted PageSpeed service. So if you’re using pagespeed.googlehosted.com as your CNAME, you better change it today, or else, your site won’t load anymore. It has been 4.5 years since Google PageSpeed service started, and it’s been an awesome ride! My site’s page load speed actually increased after using their hosted page speed service. But now, it’s time to move on. You can use Cloudflare, just like what I’m using right now, or have your own self hosted pagespeed service.
While browsing my recent searches, I noticed this phrase: “where can i download music now isohunt is gone”. I know many people are using ISOhunt to download free stuff including MP3s, movies, and software. Anyway, if you still didn’t know, isohunt is back! Their new URL is isohunt.to. They’ve been posting a lot of updates since they went back up last October. But if you’re still looking for a good torrent site to download your beloved movies and music, check out thepiratebay.sx. It has tons of free movies and mp3s. Most of them are filtered because fakes are deleted by the admins @ PirateBay.
But if everything is gone, including piratebay and other torrent sites, you can use Google to search for Torrent. Google is the largest search engine out there, and it’s indexing billions of illegal contents, even if they are telling everyone that they hate it. Yet, they still index it. So as long as Google exists, free movies and music exists, piracy exists.
Sandra, a friend of mine way back college, asked me the question above. She has a MyLife.com subscription (her Mastercard has charges from MYLIFE PPL BKGRD SVC) and she wants to cancel it because she no longer uses it and she wants a refund. After she asked me this question, I just had a blank stare at her. I have no idea what MyLife.com it because I haven’t used that site before.
Today I received an e-mail that Google Apps free edition has been discontinued. Yep, you can no longer avail the awesome services that was offered by Google Apps starting today. All sign-ups before December 6, 2012 can still enjoy the free version of the Google Apps, but sign-ups after the 6th of December should avail of the Google Apps Business Edition that costs around $50.00/year or $5.00/month.
You can still sign-up for a free trial of Google Apps for Business, then after the free trial, you’ll need to pay $5.00/month. If you go to google.com/a where you sign-up for a free edition of Google apps, you’ll be redirected to google.com/enterprise/apps/business/ where you will be forced to sign-up for a Business edition, because you don’t have a choice.
Everybody seems to be saying goodbye. Just recently, I blogged about the shutting down of i.PH blog services. Now, I’m blogging again about another farewell. Today, March 21, 2012, no new hosted domains will be added for existing Adsense for domains publishers. AdSense publishers with access to Hosted domains will no longer be able to add new domains to their account. Hosted domain channels will also be read-only as of this date.
If you’ve noticed this, then you’ve noticed it! Google Profiles now redirects to Google Plus. This is not really a big deal for everyone, but a big deal for vain people who already fell in love with their custom Google Profiles friendly URL. If your name is Paul and you have a Google profile with the URL profiles.google.com/paul, it will now be redirected to plus.google.com/(the 20 annoying random integers here)
Good thing the Google user with the username Paul didn’t create a Google+ profile yet (as of writing this post). But when the time comes that he creates a Google+ profile, his lovely /paul friendly URL in Google Profiles will be gone to oblivion and will be converted to a Google Plus user ID.
Yes boys and girls! Another major PR update occurred yesterday and my PageRank is still the same. I know some domain owners who gained PR from PR6 to 7 and some domains declined its PR. Some PR0 sites increase to PR4, some remained, just like my domain, and some or not lucky enough to have a PR increase.
I just noticed that another major Google PR update has occurred yesterday, July 18, 2011. I noticed a lot of sites returned to their original PageRanks after the June 27, 2011 major PR update. Some sites that gained +1 PR, rolled back to their original PageRank, such as PlurkThemes.com (PR7 to PR6), Ajalapus.com (PR6 to PR5), SachaChua.com (PR6 to PR5), Jehzlau-Concepts.com (PR6 to PR5), and other notable Filipino blogs.
