Was looking on Google Maps to see what time my favorite little lunch spot opened, and spotted my car on the Google Street View parked out front.
So, I upgraded to iPhone OS 3.0 and want to get the Google Calendar Sync up and running on the new OS.
Search for “iphone google calendar sync” at Google. Not a single link on the first page has the instructions on how to do it. Had to search forever just to find the server name to enter which is
Sheesh. So I make this blog post so I never have to search again for this.
Fantastic announcement, no howto:
has some great information about the product, but no install instructions:
Finally found this after about 10 minutes:
As of today I noticed some changes with Google Maps.
There is one search bar up there and it is now a drop-down combobox.
No story on Google’s Blog, or News outlets about the change.
I noticed some small Google Calendar updates a couple days ago. When creating a calendar item, it is now a semi-transparent color matching your category colors. I wonder what other features or fixes were put in that I have yet to run across.
I like the fresh look
UPDATE: Found this article 9 days later which explains a lot:
A few days ago I launched the Asterisk Voicemail for iPhone page. This received a lot of press in the Asterisk community and blogs. My site shot up to #1 for the search term “Asterisk Voicemail iPhone”.
Now a few days later and my site is not even in any search results for those terms “Asterisk Voicemail iPhone”. I’m assuming that Google has some sort of blacklisting (temporary I assume) that I have fallen into. The page is not completely blacklisted, as it still shows up for search term “chris carey”.
The funny thing is that the same exact behavior has happened on altavista.com, yahoo.com, and msn.com. How could I disappear from all four of these search engines at the same time? It appears these other three have mimicked or stolen the google algorithm so successfully that all their results are exactly the same.
2 hours after posting this, my results return to #1 in Google. NEVERMIND! 🙂
