Google Patches 30 Chrome Bugs, Adds Instant Pages

JiveDonut Re:Does instant pages pump up the hit count? (103 comments)

Yes it does. I have a a very low traffic blog so I can see the results easily. Doing a search where my posts come up in the first page of results causes each page to register two pageviews in the blogger stats for each one.

AT&T Sues Verizon Over "Map For That" Ads

JiveDonut Re:Good (249 comments)

Disagree completely. I think the ads are quite obvious in that

A) It clearly states it is a 3G coverage map


B) There is a sentence on the bottom of the screen that says that voice and data service are available outside the 3G coverage area.

IIRC, the ad says "3G" about 1 brazillion times as well.
