Google+ Invites

Well, I finally managed to get online with Google+. The service is in limited trial and an invite is required to actually get in, so you can’t just sign up at this point. This is a case where knowing somebody gets you everywhere. So, as King, I dispatched my interweb minions to track down an invite and, low and behold, I was in like Flynn. (It’s best not to ask about their methods… plausible denial and all that.)

Once behind the velvet rope, you find what you’ve come to expect from Google. Clean, streamlined simplicity. Sure, there’s a bit of a learning curve however it’s not a big one if you’ve used Facebook before. And everything you post, you have immediate hands-on control over who you are sharing it with by utilizing Circles (groups of friends or contacts). So if you’re sick to death of the Mark Zuckerberg’s privacy-crushing behemoth and how flippant Facebook is with your information, Google+ might be more up your alley.

If you want in, feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll hook you up.

The New JeffLand Empire: Mobile Edition

I think it’s pretty obvious to anyone involved in website administration or those who make a living from the Internet that mobile browsing is changing the way we get our information as well as the format it takes. The standard format for websites often gets lost in translation when viewed on a mobile device and becomes borderline painful to browse.

The way of the future is multiple layouts based upon the user’s browser type. This usually means a lean, trimmed down version of the website with few options and resorts to displaying the guts of the website.

Following the lead of sites like Lifehacker, Gizmodo or Engadget, the New JeffLand Empire website is sporting its own mobile edition. Same great taste with less calories!

Between devices, the mobile site may appear slightly different however the content is the same. If you want to see the full site, either get to a computer and browse it or just click the link at the bottom of this page on your mobile device to exit the mobile edition.

I’ve charged the JeffLand Minister of the Interwebs with jazzing up both sites a little and adding some awesomeness to them. So keep an eye out for some changes!
