I’ve been thinking about how the usage by my phone relates so much with my usage of a computer. I’ve been finding that my Blackberry is just as important to my daily computer usage as my computer itself.
Here’s the simple reason why:
My Blackberry has been put in the position that is it is notifying me of “things” that I will need to do. In turn, those “things” are then requiring my use of a PC to attend to them.
So, I don’t need to spend a ton of time near a PC when waiting to see what needs to be done next. I’ll be notified through my Blackberry, either by email, text, phone call, calendar item and so on. Then I take action and hop on a computer and take care of business.
I like this system because I don’t have to sit in front of a PC as much to take care of daily business. I kinda like that.
I didn’t even really think of how slick of a system that has become, now that I think of it I’m going to have to start pushing more things through that notification and action system.
We’re in luck, because Google just finished their worldwide rollout of local search results on a map. So now all you have to do is search for what you want — coffee, gym, food, flowers, or dentist, for example — and Google will guess your location and display local business results for your search term on a map.
The first thing that came to mind was – wow, Google is now making navigating real life as easy as navigating through a video game world using an interactive map. That’s the gamer in me.
The reality is that this is just plain sweet. This is just another example of Googles continued addition of seemingly small things to their applications that make them a whole lot more usable for us end users.
Nice little bug here. I’m sure if you are reading this you may be looking for a solution to the problem you are having with updating your WordPress categories.
I’ll let you know what worked for me.
I was trying to update a category named “Computer Hardware” with a slug of “computer-hardware” to read “Hardware” with a slug of “hardware”. Easy enough, right? Well, WordPress just told me “Category Not Updated” and left it at that.
After some good ol’ Google searching, I found that there seem to be numerous reasons why people think they might be getting the error. The reason I couldn’t update my category, in particular, was because I had a tag with the same name and slug as what I was trying to update the category to. Meaning, I had a tag named “Hardware” with a slug of “hardware”.
I deleted that tag and then I was able to change my category name to “Hardware” with a slug of “hardware”. Dumb. But it worked. I would think WordPress would cook up a solution to this bug soon as there is a lot of buzz out there about this issue.
