Since the launch of Apple’s App Store in 2008 there has been a flood of smartphone apps all with the intention of making our lives easier. Because of these apps we can find out instantly what song is playing on the radio without having to be told, we can know the square roots of pi is to the 137th decimal, and much more.
Take a look at this list of other useful apps. They might teach you about something you didn’t know before or help to make your life just a bit easier.
One good thing about April Fools is that you know Google will come up with something. This year they introduced Gmail Tap. Hey “You can tap it in the morning, you can tap it at night, you can tap it in the bathroom…”
Google is dancing with the idea of joining Amazon in the online retail department. Google is in talks with retailers such as Macy’s, Office Depot, and Gap. However the sweet point is Google will get it to you in 24 hours!
The plan would add a quick shipping service to Google’s current product search feature. Google would oversee the shipping feature, which would show whether stores have a product in stock and can deliver it within a day. The program might involve the United Parcel Service and local courier services, according to the WSJ.
Google is really trying to take over the world!!!!
Ever lose your cell phone? Me neither, but for those of you who said yes which city do you hail from? Maybe you are a product of your environment and it is your destiny to lose your iPhone. Sucks to be you. But at least I hope you are putting sometype of password on your phone. NMake it challenging for whoever finds it so they just can’t get to the naked pictures you have of yourself.
Google is every damn where these days. It is no longer just your mother’s search engine. And with the creation of Google Wallet, the big G can be in your pockets also. But the million dollar question is would you feel safe using it? Especially with companies like Sony getting their safe busted in, how safe can Google Wallet be? Maybe, it will be safe until someone runs off with your phone. Anyways I am looking forward to a Paypal Wallet!!!!
Google has announced that Kansas City, Kansas will get Google Broadband service.
The company announced Wednesday on its official blog that the city is the first to get the new program. Google says its ultrafast network would be capable of making Internet access more than 100 times faster than the broadband connection in most U.S. homes.
More than 1,100 cities throughout the country made bids to become a test site for the network, which would provide Internet connections of 1 gigabit per second to up to 500,000 people.
!00 times faster speeds? Now that is what I’m talking bout!! I would be able to download Prince’s entire catalog of music in about 10 minutes!!!
Looks like Facebook is on some Google ish!! The social networking king has plans on streaming movies to users within the Facebook universe. In Facebook’s plan to takeover the world, it has teamed up with Warner Brothers to offer the 600 million users hit flicks.
Warner Brothers will start the trial with The Dark Knight, the 2008 Batman movie from Christoper Nolan, and Facebook users will have to pay 30 Facebook credits (about $3) to watch the movie. To rent the movie, U.S.-based Facebook users have to visit the movie’s Facebook page, and start watching the movie from there. The rental period lasts for 48 hours — twice the standard from other streaming services — and users can post comments and do the typical Facebook things at the same time, including updating their status.
The studio says that additional titles will be coming soon and that it was a no-brainer to start offering video streaming rentals through Facebook.
In about 2 years the internet will be ran by Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Ya’ll just wait and see.

For most people, the term “search engine” has become synonymous with the name “Google.” But what many don’t realize is that, aside from the generic search engine capabilities, Google also offers plenty of free tools to help improve your SEO and get the most out of your site. The following guide offers helpful advice on pairing services like Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools to tweak your site and kick up your search engine ranking a few notches.
How to Use Google to Improve Your SEO: General Google SEO Tips
Since Google is still a search engine at heart, you’ll need to implement a few SEO tactics in order to take full advantage of the tools Google offers to help optimize your site. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
1. Don’t neglect the power of “off-site” links. Google places a lot of emphasis on links, says Chris Dawkins, CEO of Trace Media Marketing, a New York City-based SEO and Internet marketing firm. In other words, the more links that point back to your website, the higher Google will rank your site.
Well, well, well. The giant is thinking of infiltrating our daily life just a little more. WSJ reports that Google plans on making software for TV sets that will allow viewers to watch more internet content from the comforts of their own TV sets. The software may be announced to the 3,000 developers expected to attend its Google I/O conference in San Francisco May 19 and 20.
With these plans Google may heat up the internet/TV race much like the smartphone race they are currently locked in with Apple. Like we said before Google has hopes on world-wide domination and this is just another stone in the pyramid.
We told you once before that Google will make spaghetti one day. Here is more proof!
How many of you out there work with Chrome? I am more of a Firefox man myself.
So if you haven’t noticed we are in the middle of a take-over, a Google sized take-over. The likes in which we have never seen before; a company that started as a simple search engine has now become larger than life. Institutes onto itself; sort of like McDonalds, Kleenex, Q-Tips, etc, just say the one name and we all know what you are talking about. We now have phones running Google, maps that can show you on your porch chillin’, gps that can follow you as you move from to and fro, and some new email titled Wave, and now a computer operating system.
WHAT THEY TALKING BOUT…..
