Google on Google Chrome – comic book

So google finally announced their browser. You really gotta check this out; I’m sure it’ll be revolutionary in some aspect (open source, memory management, other architecture, etc.).

But what’s really of interest— to the artist in me at least—the geek in me is afk, shitting himself over the wonderful possibilities as well as the horrible implications for internet monopoly—is Scott McCloud’s beautiful & super informative comicbook describing what Chrome is & how it functions. McCloud captures the images of various coders and designers, and use them to explain Chrome’s features to users and dispense tech-talk to the developers. And man… If you’ve read McCloud’s other books, you know that McCloud has a wonderful grasp on the medium of comics, and can explain just about anything through a few, lines & a word bubble.

The part below perfectly illustrated what I perceive to be one of the most frequented and most frustrating part of a browser: the URL bar.



In the new version of firefox, the “awesome bar” tries to give suggestions when you type into the box. But a lot of the times, these results just end up cluttering the short box and makes things even more difficult. In fact, while creating this post, I typed “hagure” into the URL bar and instead of taking me to hagure-metaru.net, I got a link for http://hagure-metaru.net/wordpress/wp-admin/press-this.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fblogoscoped.com%2Fgoogle-chrome%2F&t=Google%20on%20Google%20Chrome%20-%20comic%20book&s=&v=2

That is not helpful at all. I look at the first part of the URL, then my eyes glaze over at the trailing gobbledygook, and I feel like the programmer in the last panel. Here’s hopin’ Google comes through.


Here’s to the Google Monopoly… a reluctant cheer. May you guard my (and the rest of the world’s) data/life with wisdom, courage and justice.


Sorry bout the lack of posts here…

I have been doing a lot of thinking though, on and off, here and there

Then promptly forgetting it and going back to Square 1.

No more.

Valentine’s Day… So I had my 1st Valentine’s Day where it actually meant something yesterday (2 days… whatever).

OMG it was soooooooooo fucking tight.

So. 1st thing… on the night of the 13th, while I’m at OVT… she apparently busts in and leaves me hella balloons and shit (the balloons hella popped all over the place, by the time I finished seeing the surprize only 4 of 13 were left…) A box of Krispy Kremes too! …or so I thought. Inside I get a note sayin’ “Fooled ya! Haha… no donuts! Happy Valentine’s Day Part 1 I Love You!”



So yeah… come the 14th… She’s bein all hush-hush. Everyone around me sayin’ “OMG you’re gonna have hella fun and shit!” (I say ‘and shit’ a lot don’t I?)

(oh yeah… Ed gave me a present too! He’s the sweetest! ^____^ )

But yeah… so she tells me to be ready by 7… I go and visit her around 5 or so… see this huge ass box which she says is my gift for later… then she kicks me the fuck out at 6 and tells me to get ready. I say I’m hella hungry tho, but she says “naw f that s cuz what we gonna do is gonna make you throw that shit up” (not verbatim as you probly know).

But yeah… so I go to OVT… almost eat something but decide against it and just buy a Squirt.

So 7 comes, imma meet her halfway to help with the huge ass box. I’m eatin the chocolate Dove Bar and drinkin the squirt… she’s all dressed nice… not like fancy nice… but social nice… you know. Fuckin’ carrying the huge ass box.

So we get home, and I open the box… of course it’s like those bigass boxes filled with newspaper and the real shit is at the bottom. Hahaha…

But yeah… we’re in a rush so I try to open this shit fast.

I get a nice ass Hollister shirt… fuck man its tight.
I got another necklace cuz the last one broke… god damnit Adry…
The dopest card ever…


Run to OVT parking lot… the cabbie’s bout to leave and yells at us to hurry up.

So we get there, she tells me “close your ears!”

Gives the dude (Muhammad… ) directions to whereever…

We get in.

She tells me… don’t speak loudly, don’t make no sudden movements weird shit like that

So I’m like “wtf………”
