It’s almost like Google is actually trying now, they’re actually making pretty decent iOS apps now.
Just between you and me, I really like Google Chrome on the iPad…
Seeing a lot of articles saying that Google has released Chrome for iOS today… I wonder if it will actually be released today, as I write this it’s still not in the Australian App Store and there’s not that many hours left ‘today’ in the US.
Update: It’s available now in the Australian App Store…but only if you go through iTunes, it doesn’t seem to be available via the App Store on the iPad.
Overnight Google unveiled their next big brand, Nexus.
Nexus is a phone, a tablet, and a media player (kind of like an Apple TV). Nothing really new with any of these devices, apart from the complete end to end control, and therefore better integration and experience, from Google.
Finally it looks like Google might have learnt a lesson from Apple, in that controlling the entire product experience means that you’ll likely have better adoption as everything just works together properly.
Regular people aren’t geeks, they don’t want to hack things together to make a working whole, they just want things to work. Apple has excelled in recent times with this philosophy all the while Google was preaching ‘open’.
Good work Google, hopefully these devices will help them get back in the market, and by proxy make Apple have to work a little harder.
We’ve acquired Motorola Mobility
This might actually make Google, and the Android operating system, competitive with Apple and iOS. All along Google has been preaching the value of “open” but now I wouldn’t mind betting that Google closes Android down a little and moves a little more toward Apple’s idea of the App Store.
The phones in our pockets have become supercomputers that are changing the way we live. It’s now possible to do things we used to think were magic, or only possible on Star Trek—like get directions right from where we are standing; watch a video on YouTube; or take a picture and share the moment instantly with friends.
It’s why I’m excited to announce today that our Motorola Mobility deal has closed. Motorola is a great American tech company that has driven the mobile revolution, with a track record of over 80 years of innovation, including the creation of the first cell phone. We all remember Motorola’s StarTAC, which at the time seemed tiny and showed the real potential of these devices. And as a company who made a big, early bet on Android, Motorola has become an incredibly valuable partner to Google.
Overall this is a good acquisition for Google, and for the industry as a whole as if it all goes according to the presumed plan Apple and others will have some competition again.
So Google, who’s biggest revenue stream is selling highly targeted advertising on the Internet, is now asking you to upload all your files to their servers. You don’t have to be Einstein to know that this isn’t going to end well.
I think @Gruber said it best;
Sure, I trust Google to index the contents of all my files. Why not?

Google’s transition into the new Microsoft is now complete: fancy-pants sci-fi concept video to promote stunningly awkward augmented reality glasses.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Still not sure what Google+ is useful for, and how you can make it work for you and / or your business? You should probably check out Guy Kawasaki’s latest book, What the Plus! Google+ for the Rest of Us.
Guy’s currently giving away a load of free PDF copies, sponsored by the Alltop iPad app.
If free’s not your thing, you can always buy a copy for $2.99 on Amazon.

I don’t even care what this article of MG’s is about, just reading this lead / teaser is hilarious in itself….maybe I should go and read the links.
