Watch this first, and let’s see if you have more questions…
Let me see if I got it right:
- It is Hardware-as-a-Service. Google will require a $28 (over heard that it is $20 if you are a student) per month “subscription” for a Chromebook
- Either you pay for the subscription or buy your own. Google announced Samsung Chromebooks at $429 and $499 price points.
- So there’s a question whether you want to acquire one or you subscribe
- Hardware or Software failure? You’re covered.
- What happens if the cloud goes down? But of course, that could never happen – Heh!
- Offline support – not so fast! Google did promise offline support for Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Docs by this summer. So til then, you can’t edit your spreadsheet or prezo til you get a connection
- I want one- is it available already? Not too fast, it will be launched by June 15
- Dang, I really need one. But Canada will not have it til a later date.
- For now, play Angry Birds all you like on your desktop or laptop – for free, only from Chrome

Our 2.5 yr-old boy is growing up so fast in front of our eyes. Deadlines are creeping at work. Wrinkles and father time has taken its toll to our bodies. Wouldn’t you want at least a timeout or at best, slowing down of everything happening around us?
Tom Guilmette was able to do that over the course of a stay in a Las Vegas hotel – over night. Here is the astounding, jaw-dropping, mind-blowing, glass-breaking result. (ok, it is that awesome!)
So you have the Nativity in Social Media, a look back at the year 2010 and now a Valentine’s day story in social media. Well, this just goes to show that we can do a lot of things with the plethora of social apps around.
Enjoy February, tho short as it is, there’s something to look forward to in the middle of the month!
Times have changed indeed. Would the story of the Nativity been different if they had Gmail for communication, Google Maps to tell where to go, Foursquare to inform friends of their location, Twitter or Facebook, to broadcast what they plan to do? I guess it will still be the same and Jesus will continue to reign in our hearts, with or without You Tube.
This may be the last Social Media post and the most meaningful – have a socially happy new year and an equally meaningful Christmas.
Enjoy eating rice with your spoon and fork!

A look back at 2010 and which search keywords were most used. Here’s a great video to summarize them all.
You? what were your most searched keyword? Let me guess, your name?
Quoted from Mashable
The search giant analyzed billions of searches performed in 2010 and compared them with searches from 2009 to surface emerging trends. Chatroulette, the iPad and Justin Bieber were the three fastest-rising search terms in 2010; Twitter and Facebook also made the list, at numbers eight and 10, respectively.
Among the items of interest that lost the world’s attention in 2010 were swine flu, Stephanie Meyer’s novel (and the accompanying movie) Twilight: New Moon, Susan Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire, “MySpace layouts” and Michael Jackson.
The iPad was the emergent search winner in the consumer electronics category, followed by the iPhone 4, Nokia 5530, HTC EVO 4G and Nokia N900.
In terms of news searches, Haiti proved the most popular, followed by Turkish sports club Besiktas, Chile, “earthquake,” Lady Gaga and the iPhone 4. The Gulf of Mexico oil spill ranked 10th.
Accenture came up with a compelling and cute video that defines Cloud Computing from the minds of a 10-year old, or a 5th grader. Something like the show.
Coached or not, their definitions are even better than most of us can imagine. The future is secure with these kids. I just love it! From ReadWriteWeb.
This blog is so new that it will take so much to even be called a Cloud Computing blog.
But we are all learning. Besides, 5 years ago no one could claim stake that they were writing pure Cloud stories or analyzing the Cloud computing industry. These guys are institutions and like sports personalities, we look up to them and cheer every post that they proffer. They are the Top 50 Cloud bloggers of today.
The video mentions some of them and more. Enjoy the weekend watching clouds and stars.
