Goddamned Google

Google has locked me out of my Gmail account – it won’t recognize my password. Something similar happened to me when Google hosted my blog, and there’s no appealing to a human – they don’t hire humans. So I guess I’ll set up a new password tomorrow but in the meantime, if you’ve sent me an email,I don’t have it. This whole “cloud computing” business has its drawbacks.

  1. Take it from me – Cloud computing is the best.

    Have you ever considered paying your Google bill? It helps.

  2. Last week, Google failed to send/deliver a piece of mail to my husband’s mailbox. Naturally, it was THE single most important business missive of his week.

    I’ve never had a problem with Yahoo Mail, other than putting up with their annoying layout and ads. Worth it, I guess.

    I have a pc and a laptop. on the pc, my gmail wouldn’t recognize my password so i did a password change which automatically directs you back to your sign in. The new password was unrecognized. I did it again with the same results. All told i think i redid my password 6 times with no luck.
    this nasty war of the gmail password is only on Internet Explorer. I use Opera, Firefox, and Safari web browsers that think my password is fine. Occasionaly i still go back into Internet Explorer and give it another wang and it still hates me.
    It is more than scary to realize that the critical things in our lives are completely tied to computers. Good luck with your gmail.

    “The game is definitely on: Now even your personal email is being mined for data to sell to advertisers. Google, for example, appears to be reading your private email and using what you’re talking about to target advertising to gmail.com users. See for yourself: send an email talking about cars or trees or books or some specific topic to someone with a gmail account and have them give you a screenshot of the ads that they are shown. It’s no different than if the US Post Office was steaming open letters and selling what they read to junk mailers. Seems like it’s only a matter of time before people pull the plug on gmail for doing stuff like that.”
