CloudMagic 2.0 Adds Speedy As-You-Type Search to Google Docs and Contacts
Google Wave Morphs Itself into New Offerings Google Wave was seen as one of the spectacular failures of 2010. While the product did not find resonance with the users, the underlying technology that was used in it has been winding its way to acceptance ranging from getting incubated in Apache and a new offering from Google labs named Google Shared Spaces. We reported on the demise of Wave and had remarked that it will not be a surprise if Google releases products built on the same foundations that Wave was built on. The direction that it has taken since then has confirmed that.
Google Docs Plays Videos Google Docs lets you upload any kind of files, but not many of them can be previewed in Google Docs. You can open Microsoft Office documents and presentations, PDF files and some images. Now you can also play videos. Uploaded video files can be up to 1 GB. These are the most common video formats that you can upload and play:* WebM files (Vp8 video codec and Vorbis Audio codec)* .MPEG4, 3GPP and MOV files - (h264 and mpeg4 video codecs and AAC audio codec)* .AVI (many cameras use this format - typically the video codec is MJPEG and audio is PCM)* .MPEGPS (MPEG2 video codec and MP2 audio)* .WMV* .FLV (Adobe - FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio) Since Google uses YouTube's player, it's obvious that these are the formats supported by YouTube.

This is a guest post from Samantha Morra of EdTechTeacher.org, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. Many of us using technology in the classroom find ourselves caught between two worlds: Apple and Google. Apple’s iPad is a fantastic tool in the classroom which provides students with various opportunities to consume, create, and communicate. Similar to a swiss-army knife, it is only limited by how we choose to use it. At the same time, Google apps provide students with cloud-based services, from search to document creation and sharing, that work seamlessly on iPad.
