We all listen to our music using various ways, applications, and tools. Variety is the spice of Life after all. So what’s another way to do so…
ExtensionFM, or “Ex.fm”, is quite useful if you use Google Chrome as your primary browser. Add on to that your insatiable hunger to surf different music blogs or sites like: SoundCloud, Last.fm, Beatport, etc… this extension becomes a must-install for users like you.
It seems that I haven’t (in the time of writing) added a geolocation to one of my favorite photographs, as well as Life-moments.
Truly a “Breathless Balcony.” Taken on the third day of a recent Inka Trail trek at Intipata in Peru.
Meanwhile, back to the subject. If we’re talking about Flickr, Yahoo! comes to mind. The only thing that sucks about mapping on Flickr is the limited coverage and subpar details of Yahoo! Maps (in this case). You get results like these:
For those travelling with their laptops and have used Google search, you may have noticed that it does a country redirect based on your IP address. For example, I visited the Philippines this past month and instead of the usual google.com, it redirected and used google.com.ph. After getting back to the US, my searches would still redirect to using the .ph version. I even checked that the Search Engines settings (in this case in Chrome/OSX) didn’t have it.
Anyways, in case you run into the same situation, do the following:
Open up Terminal
Go to ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome
Open the file “Local State” either w/ vi or a text editor
Search for the strings “last_known_google_url” and “last_prompted_google_url” and replace their values to your preferred Google base URL. In my case, “http://www.google.com/”.
Save the file and exit
That should do the trick. For Windows and other systems, you may check out this page for the steps. Almost the same, just different paths.
One of the primary reasons why I’ve grown to love the Dodgers.
