How Google Chrome Can Help You Learn a New Language Google has produced a new extension for Google Chrome, and this one could help you learn a new language. It’s called Language Immersion for Chrome by Use All Five, Inc., and this extension allows you to select a language other than your own and configure the immersion level you wish to apply to pages as you browse around the Web. Once set, certain words and/or phrases will appear highlighted and translated in your selected language, making it easy for you to pick up on that second language as you become more and more familiar with common phrases used in articles. For example, you could pick up a little extra Spanish every day by selecting Spanish and setting the immersion level down to novice. After a while, you may opt to gradually increase this immersion level to include a larger percentage of your daily reading until eventually you have a grasp of the written language. Language Immersion for Chrome works with all 64 Google-supported languages. Other Useful Chrome Extensions

Google Apps vs. Office 365: Why Google Will Win the Enterprise | BetterCloud BlogBetterCloud Blog Since our founding, it’s been a core mission of BetterCloud’s to spread the word about Google Apps and evangelize for the platform. And after raising a Series A this past January, we’ve stepped up our hiring process, which has led candidates to ask why I’m betting my career and company on Google Apps. This was a question we encountered throughout the fundraising process and I’m sure it’s frequently asked of other ISVs and Google Apps resellers. While I’m obviously biased towards Google Apps, I do wholeheartedly believe the platform will win. Just three years ago, I was a power Microsoft Exchange and Outlook user and frankly hadn’t considered Google Apps as a serious enterprise platform until I started working at a Google Apps reseller. It took me about a week to get up to speed with Apps and I very quickly realized the value in the platform.

mobygratis Google Docs vs. Microsoft Word | BetterCloud BlogBetterCloud Blog 10 Microsoft Word 2013 headaches and how to cure them with Google Docs An article appearing in PCMag last week entitled 10 Microsoft Word 2013 Headaches and How to Cure Them caught our attention. While the authors gave some great information and provided a few handy work arounds, the cure to us seems pretty simple – get rid of Word altogether and trade up to Google Docs. Let’s examine each of the 10 issues discussed in the article and how Google Docs can remedy or completely avoid them altogether. 1. Word 2013, like other versions, has problems with image formatting.

Whether a presentation is about a lesson, an idea, a product, a company, an analysis, a proposal or a curriculum, the benefits of sharing it to a much wider audience are tremendous. In case of presentations for which access need to be limited to a company, a school or a group of subscribers there are still valuable benefits in publishing the presentations online, even if behind a firewall or a paywall.
