Disable the Google Grid Navigation, Revert Back to Top Bar Navigation

October 16, 2013

If you’re a Google user (which most of us are), you’ve probably noticed an annoying new navigation system that they’ve slowly been rolling out to the public. It takes the tried and true Top Bar navigation with quick, one-click access to their most popular Google Products…

Google Top Nav
Google Top Nav

and groups everything into what they are calling the grid…

Google Grid Navigation
Google Grid Navigation

Which is irritating because, among other things, it adds an additional click to get to where I need to go (e.g. Getting to Google Calendar from Gmail). Their welcome message is equally as annoying:

Welcome to the new way to find your favorite Google products. Click the grid to have a look.

I noticed though that my Chrome sessions varied from computer to computer (some showed Top Nav action while others showed the stupid Grid). So I did a little toying around and may’ve found a possible solution. Although not ideal and possible temporary (until Google really decides to force this down our throats), here’s the simple solution that brought my holy Top Nav back.

The Solution

  1. In Chrome, go to Settings
  2. Google Chrome Settings
    Google Chrome Settings

  3. On the left nav, click on History and click the Clear browsing data… button
  4. Google Chrome History Settings
    Google Chrome History Settings

  5. On the Clear browsing data popup, check all boxes and click on the Clear browsing data button.
  6. Clear browsing data popup window
    Clear browsing data popup window

  7. Close your Chrome session and go back to Google where you’ll find your Nav back where it should be… On Top!

A few notes/caveats:

  • As mentioned above, this is by no means a permanent solution. Once Google decides that this is the (ill-advised) direction they’d like to go, there’s nothing we can do to stop it.
  • I’ve also actually once did this before and the Grid nav returned! I don’t recall how or when, but I’ll try to update this article once I figure it out after the next occurrence. For now, this seems to work at least for a little while.
  • On step 3 above, you don’t necessarily need to check all boxes. If you want to preserve your settings for some of these and have the time, by all means, feel free to experiment with which checkbox exactly resolves this for you. I’m guessing it’ll be the cache one. I just tried to simplify things by checking all boxes.
  • Not sure if it makes much of a difference, but in my tests, I used the standalone Google Notifier app for Windows with HTTPS patch installed. I am logged in through the app/Program, and double-click to launch Gmail within a non-Incognito Chrome session.
  • Google ideally needs to make this an option in your account settings. For a company whose main focus seems to be speed and efficiency, they should know better than to add an extra click in everyone’s main navigation path.

I hope this helps you out! Feel free to leave your feedback below.

How Remote DVR Saved My Life

October 28, 2011

OK, so the story I’m about to share is not as dramatic as my title suggests, but let’s be honest… for many of us TV fanatics, forgetting to set our DVR to record our favorite show(s) often does seem like life or death.

Let’s take a few steps back and talk about what Remote DVR is. In fact, maybe I should moonwalk a little further and talk about what DVR itself is because, believe it or not, I still get asked this question on the regular.

DVR, which stands for Digital Video Recorder, is the greatest thing since sliced bread. And I’m not just saying that because I work for the company. πŸ˜‰ It’s basically a smarter, “nu skool”-ier version of the beloved VHS recorder. Instead of using tapes like the VHS, it uses an internal hard drive (like a computer). And instead of relying on you and your fading memory (let’s face it, we’re getting old) to check the guide in the daily paper and set your recordings manually, the DVR automatically syncs to the on-screen guide through which you can set all of your recordings. You can even set it to record a whole series of shows, adjust start and end times, and much more!

Remote DVR, which was recently launched here in the Hawaii market, takes this convenience to the next level. Thanks to the power of the Interwebs, you can now log in to http://dvr.timewarnercable.com (using TimeWarnerCable.com’s MyServices portal) from any Internet connected device, and manage your DVR recordings even when you aren’t home.

How Remote DVR Saved My Life

For Apple iPad users, you can leverage the power of our uber popular TWCable TV iPad App to similarly manage your DVR recordings. As a new father, I’ve found this service particularly useful & convenient because once baby goes to bed, the wife mandates that the TV be off. Not a problem. If I forgot to set a recording, I’ll just whip out my trusty iPad…

How Remote DVR Saved My LifeTWCable TV App on the iPad

fire up the TWCable TV app…

How Remote DVR Saved My LifeTWCable TV app launching

go into the DVR screen, and record away.

On this particular occasion, I forgot to set all of my UFC 137 related recordings. As a HUGE UFC and MMA fan in general, this event is of particular interest to me – as well as the rest of the state – because our local boy BJ Penn is headlining the card. (Read an interview I did with BJ Penn back in 2009.)

Since the “no TV when baby is sleeping” rule was in full effect, I simply did a search for “UFC” in the TWCable TV app and found all shows in the next 7 days with “UFC” in the title.

How Remote DVR Saved My LifeSearching for “UFC” in the TWCable TV app

From there, I simply selected the shows I wanted to record and, bingo-bango, they were all automagically set to record without even having to turn on my TV. Sweet right? Here’s what one sequence looked like when I scheduled a show (UFC 137 Prelims) to record on Spike HD.

How Remote DVR Saved My LifeSelecting the HD version brought up this window that displayed additional show info and the Record button.

How Remote DVR Saved My LifePressing the Record button brought up the options screen where you could adjust the Save Time (“Until space needed” or “Do not delete”) and the Start and End times.

How Remote DVR Saved My LifePressing the Confirm Changes button set my recording

Not exactly life saving, but definitely time saving. Now, with all this extra time, I can concentrate on preparing for my UFC 137 BBQ/Party! 8) Goooooo BJ!

IG2 Unboxing Video

My new blog on the corporate “Time Warner Cable Untangled” site is out. It’s an unboxing video (titled You, Party of Eight) of our latest wireless hotspot device, the IG2. Let me know what you guys think! πŸ™‚

IG2 Unboxing


Please “Like” Our Photo!

Last Thursday, some friends and I participated in Lanakila Pacific’s The Good Table, an island-wide dining event to benefit Lanakila Meals on Wheels. Our restaurant was Ola at the Turtle Bay Resort, where we enjoyed each others’ company (with wine in abundance 8) ) and ate some ono kine grindz prepared by Chef Fred DeAngelo. Some of the photos taken that night (from all participating restaurants) were selected by Lanakila Pacific and entered into a photo contest to win a “staycation” package at the Royal Hawaiian valued at $1,500. Ricky Li’s photo from our time at Ola is currently in the lead with 106 Likes. Please “Like” the photo and help him maintain the lead to win himself a nice little staycation (the contest ends this Friday). Rumor has it that he may turn it into a hotel party with all those in the photo. πŸ˜†

Sort/Group Your Outlook Email by Conversation Like Gmail

September 20, 2011

I’ve been using this “trick” for quite some time, but finally got around to posting a blog about it. This basically outlines, step-by-step, how to make your Outlook email act like your email in Gmail. That is of course, grouped by conversation.

I’ve grown so used to having all of my email conversations grouped into one set in Gmail (so I don’t have to go chasing them all over the place), that I wanted the same convenience for my work email, which uses Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. Not only will it make you 10 times more productive, it will also help to prevent that embarrassing late response to an email that has already been answered (since all messages in that conversation will be grouped together visually).

Anyway, here’s how to set up your Outlook to act like Gmail:

1) Be sure that your inbox (or folder) is not already arranged in a group (it is often grouped by date by default). To make sure this is off, right click on the header bar, go to Arrange By –> and make sure Show in Groups is unchecked.

Sort/Group Your Outlook Email by Conversation Like Gmail

2) Right click on the header bar and select Field Chooser. The Field Chooser window appears.

Sort/Group Your Outlook Email by Conversation Like Gmail

3) In the Field Chooser window, select Conversation and drag it to your header bar.

Sort/Group Your Outlook Email by Conversation Like Gmail

4) Close the Field Chooser window.

5) Right click on the header bar and select Group by Box.

Sort/Group Your Outlook Email by Conversation Like Gmail

6) An area above the header bar will appear that says, “Drag a column header here to group by that column.

Sort/Group Your Outlook Email by Conversation Like Gmail

7) Select the Conversation column header and drag it into that area above the header bar.

Sort/Group Your Outlook Email by Conversation Like Gmail

8 ) Your inbox (or folder) is now sorted and grouped by conversation like Gmail.

Sort/Group Your Outlook Email by Conversation Like Gmail

Awesome right?

Sometimes, when you’re looking for a specific email, you’ll want to sort by “Received” or “From” or “Size”, etc. What do you do then?

  • Just drag the Conversation box back to the header and you can sort by any column.
  • When you want to group by Conversation again, just drag the Conversation column header back to that area above the header bar (step 7 above).

Hope this helped y’all! Have fun!

How Hawaii Gets Extreme

September 16, 2011

Ask anyone about surfing here in Hawaii and you’ll probably get some sort of answer containing “waves”, “breaks” and “boards”, with a “brah” and a shaka sign sprinkled in between.

But when you talk about surfing on the Internet, we Hawaiians – the geeky ones in particular – tend to get even more excited, especially when it comes to our speeds.

So when Oceanic Time Warner Cable launched a new tier of broadband Internet called Road Runner Extreme, you can bet our customers were “stoked”! With download speeds of up to 30 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 5 Mbps, Road Runner Extreme takes Internet surfing to another level.

Here’s how one local techie uses Extreme in his day to day:

How customer Brian Dote uses Road Runner Extreme

And we’re not done there! Hawaii has recently introduced another level called “Wideband” where you can expect up to 50 Mbps down and up to 5 Mbps up to start, with the potential to hit up to 150 Mbps and beyond!

Here’s Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s President Bob Barlow to tell us a little more.

Oceanic Time Warner Cable President Bob Barlow talks about Road Runner Extreme and Wideband

So as you can see, we Hawaiians love our surfing, even if it doesn’t involve waves, breaks, or boards.

Surf’s up brah!

Disable the Zone Alarm Security Options Pop-Up Window

December 16, 2010

This article is to help any of you ZoneAlarm users get rid of that annoying “ZoneAlarm Security Options” window that keeps popping up when you start your computer.

A Little Background:
Quite a few updates ago, the good people at Check Point Software Technologies, LTD (formerly Zone Labs) decided to sell out and get all commercial on us cheapskates who continue to mooch off of them by using their free ZoneAlarm Firewall. They decided that a friendly pop-up/reminder (to upgrade to their for-pay Security Suite package) every stinkin’ time we start up our computer would be the way to go. D’oh!

Disable the Zone Alarm Security Options Pop-Up Window
ZoneAlarm Security Options Pop-Up Window

I’ve just been living with it for the last, I don’t know how many months, but finally got fed up. Searched for the solution and found one that worked. Finally stopped being lazy and put together this article to share with you what I’ve learned. Enjoy!

The Non-Solutions:
– There is nothing in the pop-up itself that allows for an opt-out to this. Clicking “Tell Me More” or “No, Thank You” or even “X”-ing out of the window entirely will not work.
– There is nothing in ZoneAlarm’s Control Center settings that allows for an opt-out to this. At least I couldn’t find it.
– There is nothing to disable in Startup processes (in msconfig), and I don’t even want to attempt to touch the registry for something so small.

The Solution:
1 ) Right click on the ZoneAlarm icon in your taskbar (bottom right corner of your desktop) and select “Shutdown ZoneAlarm”

Disable the Zone Alarm Security Options Pop-Up Window
Shutting Down ZoneAlarm

2 ) Go to the ZoneAlarm folder in Windows Explorer (Windows Key + E). In Windows 7, it should be here: C:Program Files (x86)Zone LabsZoneAlarm .
3 ) Right-click on zlclient.exe and select “Run as administrator”. It may ask you for permission. Just agree and allow it to run.

Disable the Zone Alarm Security Options Pop-Up Window
Run as administrator

4) Now double-click zlclient.exe to run ZoneAlarm.
5 ) Once it’s done starting up, reboot your computer.
6 ) Walah! The pop-up should now be gone.

Hope this helps y’all! Happy mooching! πŸ˜‰
