Zoho Notebook, another new Zoho Application

I just took a look at the demo of Zoho’s new application – Zoho Notebook. It’s amazing. It’s a competitor to Microsoft OneNote and Google Notebook. First off – Zoho Notebook puts Google notebook to shame. Google notebook seems a midget compared what Zoho is rolling out. With Google notebook you can do text, but […]

Google changed the design of their image search feature. It’s cleaner and neater than before however it will only display image information when you hover over the image (like Windows Live Image Search). I miss being able to look at all the images at a glance and get their info. Luckily the Google Operating System blog […]

YouTube: Time Magazine’s Invention of the Year

Time magazine is calling YouTube the invention of the year. This is a big achievement for YouTube and especially for Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim. Here’s a quote from the article which I find interesting: even though they built it, they didn’t really understand it. They thought they’d built a useful tool for […]

Google bought YouTube

Google bought YouTube. 1.65 Billion in stocks. Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim are friggin rich. They stand to make $100-$200 million each.
