Tablet Development Starts for Google Chrome OS
While Google is seen primarily as a web-services company, they've started their way into the realm of operating systems. First, the company conquered the smartphone arena with the deployment of the open-source Android project - now on version 2.3, codenamed Gingerbread.

Windows 8 Build Leaks! Oops?
It seems like only yesterday when the latest version of Windows (Windows 7) was released, covering up the various flaws that Vista included. You will see that computers on the market now come with a mandatory version of Windows 7, instead of having the choice of either Windows XP or Windows 7, because Windows 7 is now starting to become a dominant operating system within the PC world. This will help to start eradicating Windows XP, because software manufacturers are beginning to lessen the amount of support they provide for Windows XP drivers.

Measuring Economic Impact of Using Cloud-Based Services: Google Apps
This post picks up on the theme from yesterday's post. In May 2010, Google commissioned Forrester to examine the total economic impact and expected return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by switching from legacy email and productivity solutions to Google Apps. The report is now out. As most of you know, Google Apps is a cloud-based messaging and collaboration platform that includes mail, calendaring, IM, as well as Web-based collaborative documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and sites. I have used it on several projects and it seems to work fine as a free SaaS alternative. This is especially true for efforts where a commercial cloud-based collaboration tool is not available for whatever reason.
