Invite all your women to Google+

Update: I made a doodle of this to illustrate my point. "how to spread Google+"

I've been trying to stay up to date on Google+. As I was reading today, I ran across an article stating that social networking websites are fueled by women. Well, that makes sense. Women do talk a lot. But beyond female blathering, more girls to look at = more boys going to look at them. Not only will the women spread around verbally the things they like, but they also bring in men who want to see the things they like (pretty girls). It's a win-win situation. :)

Nice! Google anayltics UI gets an upgrade (photos)

Google has been steadily rolling out interface upgrades. Google+ & photos/picasa, gmail, calendar, maps, and now Analytics have made the switch. Still waiting for Docs, and reader to catch up!

Youtube: Load denied by X-Frame-Options

Load denied by X-Frame-Options: http://www.youtube.com/embed/wtI6TL516pU does not permit cross-origin framing.

x-frame-optionsWHAT!?

When loading an iframe with $.prop('src', src)

Keep calm and switch to Youtube API.

But, it's annoying.

Also, Chrome doesn't give me this error.

Update: Actually Chrome is now giving me this error too.

Did Youtube change something?

Update 2: Tried HTTPS (still didn't work)

Went to Youtube Developer site to try alternative methods (always nice to have a backup) & guess what I found!

Lol they're having issues too.

Yeah, the Youtube Player Demo is having an error.

Not a good sign..

Update 3: Back up!

Facebook doesn't want you to make new friends

"Don't send friend requests to people you don't know"

define: know
1. be aware of through observation, inquiry, or information.

If you can send a friend request, you've already satisfied the requirements of knowing by being aware of that person.

As for the term "friend request", doesn't that imply that you're asking to be friends with someone? Not that you're already friends..

define: request
1. an act of asking politely or formally for something.

Facebook is stupid. :|

Yet another reason to move to Google+. Follow me if you've got it!
