The boys and girls over in Google land have been busy these days, so I thought I would round up some of the more recent events for you all.
Are you a Gmail Label freak? Wish you could create labels longer than 40 characters? Good news! You can now create label names as long as 225 characters. Why you would want to create label names longer than 40 characters is a mystery to me but hey, who I am to judge. Head on over to the Gmail blog for more information on Long Label names in Gmail.
Do you want the ease of use of a tablet computer such as an iPad or Android tablet and the form factor of a laptop or netbook? Might I suggest then the Chromebook? Samsung and Acer are the first production partners and promise that the Chromebook will last a full day of use on a single charge and boot up in 8 seconds. Sounds too good to be true? The Google Blog has a couple of videos to get you up-to-speed on the new Chromebook so you can decide for yourself if a Chromebook is right for you!
I don’t know what took so long but FINALLY you can color code your Google Calendar events. I’m seriously happy about this one. The Gmail blog says: “This has been a feature request from many of you for some time, and we hope you enjoy using it as much as we do.” Well duh, but we love you anyway Google.
Didn’t make it to the Google I/O Developers conference? Yeah, me neither. Don’t fret as Google has now posted the Keynotes and Session videos. Don’t look for them on Facebook but you can find the roundup of video links on the official Google Blog.
And finally 10 tips and tricks for Microsoft Word. Oops, wrong blog post. Microsoft Word tips will have to wait for another day. See you soon.
