Docs by Microsoft and Facebook

Docs by Microsoft and Facebook

Look out Google because Microsoft and Facebook are teaming up to challenge Google Docs online document sharing.

Microsoft Docs looks like a real threat to Google Docs because simply Microsoft still makes a better word processor than Google. Facebook’s crowd sourcing and social networking platform creates a true online desktop and utility for productivity. Docs also have a simple domain name that people can remember http://www.docs.com.

Google needs to respond with a true social networking strategy by merging their Gmail, YouTube, and Picassa audience to a single destination to share and communicate more seamlessly. They have made a pathway so far with integrating Buzz into Gmail. It was disappointing, however, that Google Wave was still a separate destination that needed another active conversion for adoption. Furthermore, their UI across different sites like Gmail, YouTube, and Picassa do not have similar look and feel.

Screenshot – Google Phone Confirmed

HTC Passion google phone Screenshot   Google Phone Confirmed

Google Phone

The rumors of the upcoming Google Phone has been laid to rest. Here is a screenshot of the Google Phone running Android 2.1 operating system. It is a Google branded phone but built by HTC. It is expected to be available as unlocked GSM in early 2010 on both AT&T and T-Mobile. Google apparently had a lot of influence on how the phone should be designed and operate since it is essentially their brand.

This comes only a few months after Verizon’s successful launch of their iPhone competitor Droid which also runs Android but version 2.0. Seems like iPhone competitors are coming out before the release of the next generation iPhone 4G which will be a bloodbath.

google wave invite Want a Google Wave Invite? We have some!

Google Wave Invite

Google Wave is a hot topic now. It is Google’s ambitious project for next generation unified real-time communication and collaboration tool. I finally got my invite and can now invite up to 8 others. I’m giving them away so if anyone is interested contact me through the web form. It even works on the iPhone!

What is a wave?

A wave is equal parts conversation and document. People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.
A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.
A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.

November 30th, 2009 No comments

Guys, I found this amazing deal for a color laser printer. The price has come down a lot and accessible for the average consumer / prosumer. Get it for Black Friday or as a Christmas gift for that geek in your family.

From The Manufacturer

Flexible Paper Handling and High Yield Toner for Volume Applications
Using Brother’s high-yield replacement toner cartridges (TN-115 series cartridges sold separately), you can enjoy lower operating costs and greater output for increased efficiency. And with a generous 300-sheet total paper capacity consisting of a 250-sheet paper tray and a 50-sheet multi-purpose tray, the HL-4040CDN can handle large-scale print jobs with ease. Plus, with flexible paper handling that accepts a wide range of media types and sizes, you can print high-quality business materials using letter- and legal-sized paper, envelopes, and more.

Fast Printing in Brilliant Color

Automatic Duplex Printing for Easy Two-Sided Documents
Create two-sided documents quickly and easily thanks to the HL-4040CDN’s duplex feature that automatically prints on both sides of the paper for professional-looking business documents. Automatic duplexing also helps to reduce paper consumption, as well as mailing and filing costs.

Built-in Ethernet Network Interface
The Brother HL-4040CDN offers Ethernet networking capabilities for added versatility. Its standard network interface allows multiple computers within a workgroup to connect to a single printer.

Sithsense Paper Laptop

I have been following Pranav Mistry’s SixthSense technology since his debut at TED conference in which he had a standing ovation. SixthSense allows for an ultra portable and interactive augmented reality based on genstures. It enables interactions between the real world and digital information.

His latest invention which he displayed at TED will kill any iTablet rumor from Apple or likes. Better yet, it is the introduction of the paper “laptop”. It works by attaching a microphone on the paper to sense the touch. Check out the whole video.

Google Voice Quick Reference

Google Voice is really quite an amazing service with a lot of features – for free. Granted if you have a smart phone with browser or near a computer to manage your calls. For those of you still sticking to your dinosaur phone lacking an Internet browser, this Google Voice Quick Reference is for you. Just print it out and put it into your pocket. I didn’t even know some of these features were available such as conversation recording. Managing Google Voice features is now whole lot faster.
