Go ahead – you know you want to try it – Go to Google.Com and type in Let It Snow in the search and it will fill your screen with Snow and Frost over your window that you can scrape off with your mouse cursor.

It is pretty cool.  Consider it a little pre Christmas gift from Google.

Merry Christmas – Make sure to Check out Santa Dance and Learn the True Meaning of Christmas.

Andy Warhol: Eating a Hamburger: And was a Video Blogger

I just came across this video of Andy Warhol – Who happens to be one of my favorite artists. Another Pittsburgher like iJustine that started video blogging. This video below is just a small sample of Andy Warhol’s interest in everyday objects and making it art. Yes, it is a little strange – but no more stranger then what people do on a daily basis video blogging, podcasting, blogging. Real life recorded – Some art – some journalistic – and some just plain weird. But that is just me. Now my comment on this video – Andy didn’t know the secret of getting Heinz Ketchup out of the bottle – Holding it at a 45 degree angle and hitting the bottle on / around the Heinz logo on the glass.

Google Update: Gmail Custom Time


Posted on April 1st, 2008 by Merlin.

Google today announced a brand new feature to Gmail – You have got to love this new feature. It is called the GMAIL Custom Timeâ„¢

Ever wish you could go back in time and send that crucial email that could have changed everything — if only it hadn’t slipped your mind? Gmail can now help you wiht those missed deadlines, missed birthdays and missed Opportunities.

Yes there are web services that will send you and email dated in the future- but now you can back date an email and make it look like it came from the past. Blame Technology – Hey it was the computer that didn’t send it right away and look at the date it was sent. You should have had it by now.

But you have to make this messages count – As you can only do this 10 times in a calendar year.

So the next time you forgot your girlfriends birthday or you forgot to send a report to your boss and you need to have it look like it came from the past. Here is your chance to make it work.

See the screen shot below to see what I am talking about.

Google New Feature Gmail Custom Time

Great Job Google – Keep the improvements coming.

Merlin and Have a Great Day 4-1
