Today is April 22, 2015, and if your site is still not mobile-friendly, expect to be penalized in mobile search rankings in the coming days and weeks.
Several months ago, Google issued a warning call to website proprietors everywhere saying it would update it’s algorithm on April 21 to favor mobile-friendly websites in search.
Specifically, Google will favor sites that:

- are designed responsive
If the site does not meet (most of) these requirements it will likely appear lower in search results.

How about next time you get the urge to say, “Google it,” instead, comeback with “Gizoogle it.”
Not too long ago, Apple released its iOS 6 update. Among many new and improved features brought with the update were improvements to the camera.
Now, with the iPhone’s built-in function allowing for 180 degree panoramic photos, many third party apps are wondering about their future, and whether or not iPhoneographers will still find their apps relevant.
I’m here to tell you, there are still other apps with relevance; one of them being 360 Panorama, an app that goes beyond the 180 degree limitation of the iPhone, allowing for full 360 degree panoramic views.
What kind of narcissist blogger would I be if I didn’t share my 2013 resolutions on the Internet? Well, I sure wouldn’t be a narcissist blogger now, would I?
With that being said, here is a list of my New Year’s resolutions.
So much of the Internet is geared to making our day-to-day lives easier. Services like Google Docs, Dropbox, email, instant messaging, and RSS feeds offer a simpler, more manageable Internet. The type of Internet that just works.
