May 11, 2009 Google's Chrome browser passes anything you type into the address bar that isn't an obvious URI on to the default search engine. While web browsers should have some built-in smarts, they can never match the collective intelligence of a worldwide search engine. For example : weather San Francisco CSCO time London san francisco 49ers 5*9+(sqrt 10)^3= Henry+Wadsworth+Longfellow earthquake 10.5 cm in inches population FL Italian food 02138 movies 94705 homes Los Angeles 150 GBP in USD Seattle map Patent 5123123 650 american airlines 18 036000250015 JH4NA1157MT001832 510-525-xxxx (I'm hesitant to link a listed personal phone number here, but it does work) I like to think of the web browser address bar as the new command line .
Serena Software, a maker of application lifecycle management software and cloud computing solutions, has completed its migration from Microsoft Exchange to Google's Gmail, and it took only 3 hours of dedicated work from two Serena IT workers to take one of Serena's own internal applications to the cloud, the company said. eWEEK originally reported that Serena planned to dump Exchange for Google's Gmail e-mail system in November of 2008. A Serena spokesman said the company initially had planned to migrate everyone over by the end of 2008, "however, we were waiting for Gmail's offline access," he said. "Once that was released, we accelerated our plans to migrate everyone and did it as early as possible." Serena officials said that on March 9 Serena moved more than 700 employees at locations around the world from Microsoft Exchange to Gmail.
Been doing a little research for forthcoming Mr. Mobile episodes and thought I’d share some of the iPhone Power User Tips I came across. Here are my top ten quick ones, all of which will work with iPhone Software 2.2 (and some of which will work with earlier versions): Tapping in the bottom left and right corner of the pages of your home screen will page left/right without needing to drag across.
An article in Psychology Today says procrastination creates stress, anxiety and depression. But how do you stop putting off that dreaded task? Just do it - for at least 10 minutes. Acknowledge, "I don't feel like doing that," but do it for 10 minutes anyway. That gets you over the hard work of initiation. After being involved in the activity for 10 minutes, then decide whether to continue.
As I have mentioned in a previous blog post , the purpose of this other entry is to actually cover some additional commentary related to the feedback input that the various readers from the NYTimes article " I Freed Myself From E-Mail’s Grip " have been leaving all along since I got it published a couple of weeks back. You may have noticed how I have already shared a couple of comments there myself, which you can find here and over here , but I thought I would expand on a couple of thoughts that seem to keep coming back over and over again. So without much further ado, let’s go ahead and cover them: - e-mail vs. social networking interactions – where is the balance? I know I have been getting plenty of comments in this respect and, while giving presentations at conference events or workshops, it seems to be one of the recurring themes as well over here.
THREE years ago Pip Coburn left his job as an analyst at UBS , a global bank, in order to start his own investment consultancy, Coburn Ventures. At his first staff meeting, in a Manhattan café, he and his five colleagues drew up their to-do list.
One of the most popular requests for Google Calendar was synchronization with mobile devices and Outlook. After launching a sync tool for Blackberries , Google Calendar now offers a small utility for synchronizing events with Outlook . By default the synchronization is bi-directional, but you can change this when you install the utility or from the options dialog .
Well, just did it myself, and it looks like it is all working well. The MS sites instructions weren't that clear, but I got it to work. Simply went into the command line followed the "md ddrive" instructions.
Google now official supports synching between Google Calendar and Outlook This is a guide for synchronizing (address book) and (schedule) across multiple computers and gadgets. Common terms: synchronization – making the information the same on two different applications WAP/GPRS – wireless Internet access for mobile phones SyncML – a synchronization protocol
My big complaint about Google Calendar was lack of support for easily syncing calendar data with my smartphone. I use Outlook for my personal information management because it's still the only thing that puts all my data in one place the way I want it. Google Calendar's iCal export made manual syncing with Outlook possible, but I want to get all my calendar data from my computer to my phone automatically. There have been several third party solutions that attempt to address this with varying levels of success.

Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) anti-piracy tool has angered a lot of people and rightfully so in my opinion. Fellow ZDNet bloggers have explained the details of the software along their concerns. Ed Bott wrote Microsoft presses the Stupid button and lists the stupid mistakes, starting with "it should never have been included with Critical Updates". I agree with that and all his points.
Once upon a time you actually had to pay for great software and services -- hard to believe, but true. Luckily, we no longer live in that world.

Want to tune up your PC, keep it safe, create graphics, or back up your system with gobs of free storage space ?
Zimbra showed an offline AJAX client, which has the same look and feel as the online client. Mail, calendar, contacts, and documents are cached and then synched with the server when the user gets back online. "Technically the Zimbra Offline client is the same AJAX client UI, but now you are connecting to a local sync'd cache of the data and more importantly the ability to search, tag, organize, etc without network access," said Zimbra CEO Satish Dharmaraj. In addition, Zimbra is selling its collaboration suite to hosting providers and white labelers, and introduced new skinning capability. "You can make it look like anything," Dharmaraj said as he showed Zimbra looking like Gmail. The offline synchronization capability will be available before the end of the year.
Photography: Timothy Archibald; Styling: Shannon Amos/Artist Untied Blake Ross is nervous. It’s a muggy May day in New York City, and the 20-year-old has to rent a tux for a big soiree where he’ll be hobnobbing with celebrities at one of his firstâ''ever black-tie events—a dinner for Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of the year. And he’s not very practiced with bow ties. ”I never made it to my prom,” says Ross, who has thick eyebrows and pronounced ears, making him look like a young Franz Kafka.
