The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

Blogger.com reports that the Chrome browser on iOS is unsupported.

Both are Google, right?

It is increasingly obvious that Google's blogger / blogspot platforms are not well supported, even by Google.

Annoyingly, I chose to use Google products such as blogger and plus/circles because I figured that Google was less likely to evaporate than so many other web.here-today-gone-tomorrow.COMpanies. But since Google has started seriously deprecating so many old apps, this heuristic applies much less.

Still... Google has so far been pretty good about warning and giving time to migrate when they remove a service.  If only those emails were not classified as unimportant or spam - by Gmail.  ;-}

I need to script up a cron job to periodically back up all of my Google  state. To avoid the rush when they deprecate a service.
