  • Update to reporting service in AdWords API v201101
    March 8, 2011
    Last week we announced AdWords API v201101, which included support for My Client Center (MCC) cross-client reports.

    This feature did not go live as expected, so is currently only available to a limited set of developers. We hope to make it generally available in the coming weeks.

    Please note that ReportDefinitionService will continue to work for non-cross-client reports as it did before.

    If you have any questions please post them on the AdWords API forum.

Our economy needs a cleaner, more efficient way of delivering energy while giving people better tools and information to manage their energy use.

    The good news is there’s widespread agreement that transforming the energy sector is a big opportunity
  • Speedier, simpler and safer: Chrome’s basics get even better

    (Cross-posted on the Google Chrome Blog)

    Just three weeks ago, we kicked off the Year of the Rabbit with a speedy Chrome beta. Today, we’re excited to bring these speed improvements and more to everyone using Chrome. With today’s stable release, even your most complex web apps will run more quickly and responsively in the browser. (For the curious, this boost corresponds to a 66% improvement in JavaScript performance on the V8 benchmark suite.)

    We realize that speed isn’t just about pure brawn in the browser—it’s also about
