Google ousting Sync support on January 30

Google announced today that they're doing some "winter cleaning" by getting rid of some of their services and features that they think weren't getting a lot of use.

Google blames recent Gmail outage on routine update gone wrong

Google blames recent Gmail outage on routine update gone wrong

I'd wager most computer users have had those routine updates that turned out to make things worse than they were before. Earlier this week there was an outage for Google's Gmail e-mail service that lasted 18 minutes. While 18 minutes isn't that long in the scheme of things, the outage started at 9 AM PST and affected as much is 40% of all Gmail users.

YouTube for iOS updated for iPhone 5, iPad, and AirPlay

You can now stream YouTube video via Apple's own AirPlay technology thanks to the newest update to the YouTube app for iOS, that being version 1.1.0.4136, aka the iPad and iPhone 5 update. This upgrade to the newest version has a little bit of user interface magic to it with a simple tap on the YouTube logo allowing you access to your Guide of channels while the aesthetics now seem eerily similar to what we're working with in the new Gmail for iOS - coincidence? We think not.
