And another day The incredibly on-to-it Tumblr tech guys have since refreshed my account, so we will see if this post ever publishes. Right now, Tumblr has changed the date on it again, to October 25 (it was originally scheduled for October 21 and I ﬁrst posted about it yesterday).
Google Maps doesn’t work either Google produces some hard-to-use programs, my concerns over its constant privacy breaches aside. One of my friends kindly created a map for me to pin things to. From the map he made, I can’t log in. According to Google, I should go to mapsengine.google.com and log in there. So far so good. But then, apparently, opening a map is not one of the functions that I can perform. Um, wouldn’t the function to open a ﬁle be kind of a basic one?
In case you’re wondering, feeding in the URL my friend gave me would not work either. The procedure then is to create a new map, then feed in the URL—and only then do you have access to it.
I know I am used to Google saying things and not meaning it, which leaves me totally puzzled why people hold this ﬁrm in such high regard. A lot of its products do not work the way they say on the tin.
Another odd one Is it just me or is there no way to start a new topic at Feed Informer’s forum? If not, how have others started theirs?
