Google Feedback Forms Include Screenshot Nonsense

Speaking Aside, Google YouTube’s Feedback Feature, has an ‘Include Screenshot’ Feature, which is Insanely badly thought out, because the screenshot cannot be made previously to sending the feedback, rather, just includes a screenshot of the current page in the Browser the user is on. This means, that when you choose to ‘include screenshot’ by ticking on the tickbox, all it does is include a screenshot of the ‘send feedback’ popup! What a bunch of Imbeciles!

The below video , from my new ‘The Webmaster’ Channel explains this issue visually. I am both Baffled and Abhorred at how Discombobulated Google’s UI Design Department is.

I have been webmastering since 1989, and it baffles me how a multi billion dollar company that is IT and Internet Technology based, can be so blind and stupid as to not think of this.

Any able webmaster would include an ‘Upload Screenshot’ feature, so that the user can first take a screeenshot of the event, or issue at hand, and thereafter click on the ‘send feedback’. This would allow us users to upload a screenshot of the event, instead of sending a screenshot that is completely irrelevant.
My belief is. that although i cannot code as well as some of the young new developer employees of Google Corp, being an old man of 52 years old, i still have more intuition and insights and knowledge about the vast array of issues and possible scenarios on the World Wide Web, than any of these new fandangled kids with university degrees in their specialised topic.

An Interface Designer doesn’t know how to install a sql database for example (i do) nor does a blogger know how to write a guestbook in php (i do), nor does an SEO team manager know how to edit a Movie in Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere (i do), Nor does a PHP programmer know how to write an Ebook and submit it to various marketplaces (i do), nor does a graphic editor know how to hack a wordpress theme (i do), nor does a wordpress theme designer know how to create a 16 instrument hip hop song in Garage Band (i do)

Anyway, thats enough arrogant bragging; The point is that i am a jack of all trades (master of none), and have 20 years experience in multi tasking in all aspects of webmastery and content creation, and none of the individuals who are all separated into departments each to their specific specialised task, will EVER have the Insights and Oversight that i do.

And this is of course, the reason i made this YouTube Channel, to reveal my insights and share them all with you, with everything from web design, to content creation, SEO and all the many weird and wonderful things to be found in the Big Wide World of Web.

Compartmentalisation of Knowledge (*1) between different Departments in Corporate Software Development is like putting 50 blind sheep in cubicles. The left hand no longer knows what the right hand is doing. In addition, they don’t help each other due to limited authorisation of the employees in each department.

And so, the left hand no longer washes the right hand either! discombobulate and dislocated internal affairs! All to save money on resources! This is why Google is pretty blind to its own failings. This results in a Heirarchical system, rather NWO-Like in its basic structure.

Compartmentalised Knowledge, Is Dislocated Knowledge

IN any case, as i have already mentioned in a previous post; The Future of Mobile is not Mobile OS  Os, rather Desktop OS inside a Mobile (Portable) Device, as seen in the Galaxy Book Windows 10 devices, and the Windows Continuum attempt, which although is nowhere near what expectations might rise to, but is a sure prediction of how Desktop Os is going to make Mobile OS and the puny apps it has to offer, a thing of the past.

To demonstrate How Compartmentalisation as a process of Communication Breakdown has been occurring not only in  Communications Sciences and IT Management, but also in Human Language, please enjoy the amazing Documentary Below, which is extremely difficult to find on the Internet, but is a Seminal work on Etymology and the Evolution of Human Language

How to prevent compartmentalisation for better managed IT Services 

Notes;

(*1) Knowledge is effectively compartmentalised (or put into “compartments”) when different people not only have access to certain types of knowledge but are actually denied formally or via social norms or personal preferences from going beyond their allowable sphere. Compartmentalising knowledge has several effects. For one thing it prevents people from having a holistic view. (And since many of the phenomena that now exist can only be “understood” when several viewpoints and perspectives from various sets of knowledge.) Also, as in the Tower of Babel story in the Bible, it keeps people from different knowledge camps from communicating with each other. Finally it implicitly designates certain types of knowledge as “off limits” to some people, thus locking them out of any conversations which employed or built on the knowledge that was forbidden to them.

RIP Firefox Drowned

Firefox is often said to be the best browser for Mac and Windows, but this has become a Fallacy lately.

Firstly one should know that the current news on firefox is “The death of Firefox”, and that is has security issues like never before, and is losing ground to all other major browsers. As an ex firefox freak even i have deinstalled it from all my devices, after it turned out to be the sole culprit for compromising my Mac with the google linkbucks malware and other trojans.
FireFox
Firefox is not the best browser for Mac. Because of the faster rate of updates in Flash, most browsers on a Mac will have repeated compatibility issues every few days with websites waring that flash needs upgrading for the website to work. The truth is, that web content is increasing is technological advancement faster than browsers can keep up with, and there is currently not a single browser for Mac that does not fail in one point or another.
Foxed
Safari is currently the best in my opinion, but has a lot of compatibility issues with Java and Flash and AJAX/JSON based scripts. Uploading images to websites may result in other functionality becoming deactivated until you refresh the page, or creating image folders in facebook profiles or pages for example, is impossible in Safari. Uploading multiple images does not work, only uploading to timeline on the wall works.

The cursor disappears often with Java based functions such as uploading files.. Chrome works well but is a total invasion of privacy by Google, for which reason i refuse to install it. Chromium is good but it has issues because it uses Pepper Flash which is not compatible with many sites. Maxxthon is also a total invasion of privacy, as are most browsers these days. In fact, the whole word wide web is now merely a Marketing Platform instead of a free information source.

The internet is one big spyware and marketing tool, which is not what Tim Berners-Lee intended to happen with it when he gave it to the Public Domain. Search Engines are Biased towards their own Advertising and block any results they do not wish to value, so who gets a say or a presence on the internet, is not a democratic affair. All Men are Not Equal. Try watching the movie “The Internet’s Own Boy’

Water Fox


Instead of Firefox, i am currently testing “Waterfox“, and will be making a review of this browSer in an upcoming post. Waterfox is a 64 Bit Browser Software using Intel C++ Compiler, which was developed in 2011 by a 16 Year Old student, by the name of Alex Kontos. It is based on the Mozilla Browser and is primarily designed for speed, and is said to have less compatibility issues with Adobe Plugins, which is an issue that has Plagued Firefox for Years now.
