iGoogle is retired

Glide Video Texting App

This Free Glide Video Texting App looks really cool. With Glide you are able to send video messages that are saved in the cloud to watch later or you can use the video to have real time chat.  With just one person or even in a group.

How do I remove the Ask toolbar from Google Chrome

What was happening is that every time I put a word in the address bar (omnibox) – whereas normally it would bring up Google search – this annoying Ask search thing would come up.
