Marc’s GChat Status Expanded

February 26 For the Win/For the Loss

Haven’t done one of these in awhile, so this is a round up of the last few days.

For the Win

Project Meridank: Some of you may have noticed an addition to the blog roll yesterday. Project Meridank is a blog that my friend Miller and I started. It has a completely different feel than Marc’s GChat. Read and enjoy.

Dwight Howard…awesome: He makes the kind of shot that most only see by way of camera tricks in commercials:

Changes in GMail: Google has made a couple of subtle changes to GMail over the last week or so. Most noticeably they improved the gchat status feature by opening up a separate box for edits to your status. Gone are the days where you are scrolling back and forth in that tiny bar they gave you. They also added a status bar to attachments so you know how far along they are in the upload process, a valuable took for people who are uploading big files to emails. Nicely done Google.

Hey Look, Jimmy Fallon Did Something Right: Excellent moment with Kenneth the Page riffing off of Jindal’s State of the Union “rebuttal.” Naturally NBC.com’s embed code won’t work because the only embed code that ever works on a regular basis is Youtube, so head over to Gawker to take a look.

Speaking of Gawker…: They did a great job recapping last night’s Tom Chef as well. Their write up is hysterical.

So much baconaise: Could be made from this…wow that’s a big hog

For the Loss

An end to the NYU “protests”: By now you all have probably heard about the ridiculous student sit ins at NYU. If you haven’t, Head over to Gawker (wow, I’m linking them a lot today) for a good run down. Long story short, it’s a huge sham, and it gives real civil disobedience a bad name. Well that all ended on Monday:

The video is actually rather entertaining. All in all the students accomplished…absolutely nothing. Way to go.

David Beckham, hawking sex pills: But not really…

    I know it’s a minuscule change, but why the tease Google? It worked great for me yesterday?
