Google Adsense-I don’t care!

Many people want to use Google Adsense to make money, but I don’t care. If you want to click ads here , welcome. If you don't want to click, I don't care. I only use it to know what kind of ads are in my blog. When I post some articles , I find that some ads are very useful. I can just enter URL by myself and know more information.

Why do people want to use Google Adsense to make money? Is the return of investment good? I don’t believe so. If you don’t click your ads but Google says they are invalid clicks, what should you do? Do you want to have any argument with Google? There is no such thing as a free lunch.

The best way for you to do is go with the flow. You should find another way to make money. Using Google Adsense to learn useful knowledge is my besy way.

The quality of Google Talk is getting worse and worse

In the past 2 weeks, I have found that using Google Talk to talk to people online always delays voice transmission. It is not reliable now. I can even hear my voice echo when talking to my friends online after 5 seconds. When this issue happens, I don't want to talk online any more because it wastes time and also lets people feel annyoed.What’s wrong with Google Talk now?

Google Talk provides the better quality than Skype in my mind. When a lot of people are using it and network traffic is so heavy, do you think Google Talk needs to increase its quality too?
If not, the loyalty of customers will be disappeared.

I really hope the quality of Google Talk is getting much better than ever.

Using Virtual PC to run Adobe products on Windows Vista

Christine and I have an idea of buying a PC to run Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008. She also wants to learn Adobe products on Windows Vista. When I told her yesterday that only 3 Adobe products can support Windows Vista, she felt so disappointed.

“Don’t worry about it,” I said. We can have 2 ways to do it.

One way is to install Adobe products on host PC with Windows XP and install Windows Vista on Virtual PC. If you want to use Windows Vista, just connect to that Virtual PC to have fun.

The other one is to use Windows Vista as the host PC and use MS Virtual PC to create many different PCs with different Adobe products. For example, if you want to learn Adobe Indesign, just connect to that machine with that software.

Now that Adobe is trying their best to let their products support Windows Vista, at least I can think of 2 ways now.

But when can all of the Adobe Products support Windows Vista? I think it should take a long time.

A BVT is an important concept in modern QA field

A build verification test (BVT) is a very popular and an important concept in modern QA field. Many test cases are based on BVTs. Therefore, they can let you verify if all of the unit test cases can be run in your latest build. If your BVTs fail, it means your build is not reliable. You need to create another build as soon as possible.

For example, if you have Adobe Indesign CS3 now and you want to test the install and uninstall, what are your BVTs? “Installing all components, verifying all components, uninstalling all components, and verifying all uninstalled components,” are the basic BVTs. If it fails, it means your latest build has some problems.

Recently when I installed and uninstalled Adobe InDesign CS3, I had one thing on my mind: Does their test team have BVTs and UI tests? If yes, how come the UI is not so user-friendly for me? I should say their UI team didn't do it well . When I clicked Add or Remove Programs and wanted to uninstall Adobe Indesign, it showed me that I needed to insert a CD again. Is it by design? If it is by design, I want to ask: why do they want to design like this?

In the future when you get a chance, you can ask your test team to see if they know BVTs or not. If not, tell them to use it.
