Google updates Google App’s maximum number of users for Standard/Free Edition

Today I have received an announcement from Google Apps team that maximum # of users for Standard edition (which is free) has been reduced to 10. Previously that number was 50 (really generous), with which many businesses don’t really need to go and buy the Premier Edition which would cost $50/year per user (email account).

jQuery 1.5.2 and jQuery mobile alpha 4 released

jQuery 1.5.2 is released (on April 2nd) as a bug-fix release of jQuery version 1.5.x, fixing about 18+ issues/bugs reported. Along with that couple of days back on 31st March 2011 jQuery Mobile’s alpha-4 version has been released.

jQuery mobile project is making good and steady progress though from their road-map published earlier I was expecting production ready release of jQuery mobile in Jan 2011. As I have invested into jQuery mobile as a technology and tool for one of my project and it’s obvious that I can not release that when framework itself is not mature for production.

They just have to keep experimenting constantly to find out what works out best.

The change that Google made more than a month back made one of the most consequential algorithm change of last decade which has affected about 12% of search results.
