    Uggh. I can’t believe I didn’t get an invite. I have everything Google. My phone is android, i have google voice, talk, I pay for Goog apps. Then I hear about Rockmelt through the commotion and what did I see? Chrome, actually Chromium. I have to admit it looks pretty nice, the only turn-off was having to log into my Facebook account. I hear there’s a massive amount of money being pumped into Rockmelt right now. This may be the retaliatory strike against Google+. If Google doesn’t get Google+ out fast, it might be a bust. Goog app users may even defect since they are being left out. I really hope this isn’t a repeat of the Wave debacle.
