Google Calendar and Google Earth

Another beautiful [beta] Web 2.0 application brought to you by Google. Multiple views, multiple calendars, sharing calendars, super-cool interface (even cooler than Gmail). Of course it doesn’t match with the flying abilities of Google Earth, but it does set the standard for calendar applications on the browser. Go to Google Calendar. Oh I might as well mention, you can configure Google Earth to be a flight-simulator type program, and fly around anywhere in the world. You really get the feeling that you’re really in the cockpit if you try flying low in 3D-ized areas (such as the North Shore Mountains Continue Reading

Writely Goes Google

I briefly reviewed Writely, the web word processor, a few couple of months ago in one of my blog posts. Quite recently, it appears that Google has acquired the company that develops Writely.

Some unusual sights today Snow in February? Only where Black Christmas was being filmed. A southbound 17 Oak bus turning west onto 57th Avenue. Where is this driver going? The same bus turning southbound on Granville Street from 57th Avenue. Actually there the police blocked off Oak Street southbound so even the buses had to detour. How often do you see a bird inside a Costco warehouse? (You’ll probably need to zoom in to actually see the bird)
