I just got an email today from Google letting me know they are stopping support for IE6 and “other older browsers”.  This is great news for the development community. I think I will finally drop support myself.

Dear Google Apps admin,

In order to continue to improve our products and deliver more sophisticated features and performance, we are harnessing some of the latest improvements in web browser technology. This includes faster JavaScript processing and new standards like HTML5. As a result, over the course of 2010, we will be phasing out support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 ?as well as other older browsers that are not supported by their own manufacturers.

We plan to begin phasing out support of these older browsers on the Google Docs suite and the Google Sites editor on March 1, 2010. After that point, certain functionality within these applications may have higher latency and may not work correctly in these older browsers. Later in 2010, we will start to phase out support for these browsers for Google Mail and Google Calendar.

Google Apps will continue to support Internet Explorer 7.0 and above, Firefox 3.0 and above, Google Chrome 4.0 and above, and Safari 3.0 and above.

Starting this week, users on these older browsers will see a message in Google Docs and the Google Sites editor explaining this change and asking them to upgrade their browser. We will also alert you again closer to March 1 to remind you of this change.

In 2009, the Google Apps team delivered more than 100 improvements to enhance your product experience. We are aiming to beat that in 2010 and continue to deliver the best and most innovative collaboration products for businesses.

Thank you for your continued support!

The second in the Twilight series revolves around Bella (Kristen Stewart) coming to grips with dating Edward, a closeted vampire, and then abruptly losing him and having to re-piece her life together in a small Washington town. This leads to the start of a very messy, and bloody, love triangle with Jacob, who has a secret of his own.

The Good:

Most of what’s good about this movie is due to Stephanie Meyer, the author of the insanely popular book series in which these movies are based on. The complex story of a love triangle between a lonely town girl who doesn’t quite fit in with the crowd and two very opposite end of the spectrum guys is intriguing to see played out. Will she choose the dark, mysterious Edward or the full of life, aggressive Jacob. Some of the effects in this higher budget second installment stand out as well, such as Bella cliff-diving and seeing flashes of Edward beneath the water.

*UPDATE* I have posted the HD version for your viewing pleasure.

I got my hands on the official Prince of Persia movie trailer. I thought it would post it here and on YouTube for the rest of you to see. I will be releasing a Higher Quality version tomorrow once Disney releases it, but this should hold things over until then. Personally, I think it looks PHENOMENAL!!

Today 10 years ago I bought my Sega Dreamcast. Almost a year after that I created dcemulation.com, one of my most cherished creations and all around awesome websites. Let’s all take a moment and remember the good times of the Dreamcast such as some of the best Sonic games, Powerstone games, RE: Code Veronica, and more! Some awesome emulators: Bleem!, DreamSNES, NesterDC, and more. If you still have one, bring it out, burn some emulators and play some classics on it. Visit the DCEmu archive and pay tribute to all the good times that were once had.  I am going to take mine out and hook it up in my car for lunch breaks and road trips!

I have been a huge fan of Blizzard games since Rock and Roll Racing, Lost Vikings, and Warcraft 1. You may or may not know I created the site “Diablo 2 Hack List!” back in the day and it was the number 1 Diablo site on the net for a few years. I am writing this post to give you a quick rundown of what I thought of Blizzcon this year, and my experiences.

Opening Ceremony

The opening ceremony merely announced a new expansion for WOW that we all knew was coming called Cataclysm. Not being a huge fan of WoW,  and it definately not being a game for the mid-core gamer, there isn’t much to say here. Although watching the trailer showing all of Azeroth converted to lava land seemed pretty darn cool. As far as I could tell, the changes that are coming to WOW with this new expansion pack are going to make people extremely happy. Read more..
