Want to even have a simple hassle free google search. Here you have it. Google has a small version where they show no ads at all, no unusual scripts and the data usage is kept at minimum.

To go to this page just type this in address bar of your browser-
http://www.google.com/ie

The page is really simple and shows just the search result's heading which is linked. I guess this search feature would be best suited for mobile phones where net speeds are still very low.

Google is set to put a version of everything related to computers, it has its browser. office suite, loads of internet services, social networking site- orkut, launched its own operating system and now it has its own designed programming language called "Go".
Go is an open source project, distributed under a BSD-style license. This document explains how to check out the sources, build them on your own machine, and run them.

A simple program in go to print Hello World.

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
fmt.Printf("Hello World \n")
}


Goole says Go is simple, fast, safe and free(Open Source).
Go compilers produce fast code fast. Typical builds take a fraction of a second yet the resulting programs run nearly as quickly as comparable C or C++ code.Go is type safe and memory safe. Go has pointers but no pointer arithmetic. For random access, use slices, which know their limits.Go promotes writing systems and servers as sets of lightweight communicating processes, called goroutines, with strong support from the language. Run thousands of goroutines if you want—and say good-bye to stack overflows.Go has fast builds, clean syntax, garbage collection, methods for any type, and run-time reflection. It feels like a dynamic language but has the speed and safety of a static language. It's a joy to use.
There are two distinct ways to experiment with Go. This document focuses on the gc Go compiler and tools (6g, 8g etc.). For information on how to use gccgo, a more traditional compiler using the GCC back end, see Setting up and using gccgo.

Google has made this site golang.org which has a lot of tutorials and programs for you to learn and practice.

Go is only available to be installed on Linux OS and it might take a while for for a windows compiler to be available soon. The instructions to install GO on an Ubuntu machine are given here.

The company says that Go is experimental, and that it combines the performance and security benefits associated with using a compiled language like C++ with the speed of a dynamic language like Python. Go’s official mascot is Gordon the gopher, seen here.

Here’s how Google describes Go in its blog post:

Go attempts to combine the development speed of working in a dynamic language like Python with the performance and safety of a compiled language like C or C++. In our experiments with Go to date, typical builds feel instantaneous; even large binaries compile in just a few seconds. And the compiled code runs close to the speed of C. Go is designed to let you move fast.

We’re hoping Go turns out to be a great language for systems programming with support for multi-processing and a fresh and lightweight take on object-oriented design, with some cool features like true closures and reflection.


Installing Go


Install Go[Top][Top]

The Go tool chain is written in C. To build it, you need to have GCC, the standard C libraries, the parser generator Bison, make and the text editor ed installed. On OS X, they can be installed as part of Xcode. On Linux,

$ sudo apt-get install bison gcc libc6-dev ed make

(or the equivalent on your Linux distribution).

To build the Go distribution, make sure $GOBIN (or $HOME/bin if $GOBIN is not set) is in your $PATH and then run

$ cd $GOROOT/src
$ ./all.bash

If all.bash goes well, it will finish by printing

--- cd ../test

Microsoft rolls out "beta" version of its Office Suite - "Office 2010". And for a change it is giving users to download and try it for free. Here's how you can get it.

Microsoft® Office Professional 2010 Beta


Microsoft Office 2010, codenamed Office 14, is the successor of Microsoft Office 2007, a productivity suite for Microsoft Windows. Extended file compatibility,user interface updates, and a refined user experience are planned for Office 2010 to be released in June 2010. It will be available for Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. With the introduction of Office 2010 a 64-bit version of Office will be available for the first time, although in 64-bit, only for Windows Vista and later client operating systems. Office 2010 is not supported on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

Office 2010 will mark the debut of free online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, which will work in popular web browsers (Windows Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari) but not in the Opera browser. Microsoft has confirmed that it will be released in the first half of 2010, and a public beta was made available in November 2009. A new edition of Office, Office Starter 2010, will replace the current low-end home productivity software, Microsoft Works.

Office Professional 2010 combines all you need to create, edit and share documents from virtually anywhere. You get top-of-the-line tools to run your business and any project efficiently.

Google finally launched its own operating system. Chromium OS is an open-source project that aims to build an operating system that provides a fast, simple, and more secure computing experience for people who spend most of their time on the web. Here you can review the project's design docs, obtain the source code, and contribute. Read more to know what is in google's mind.


The Chrome OS is Linux based Operating System that is based on cloud computing. It totally is on the clouds, i.e. everything happens on the Internet. They call it an extension of their chrome browser.

Google has not launched any version of chrome to be used on Microsoft Windows and i guess they never will support any of Microsoft Windows' applications ever. So the Chromium is based on Linux OS and the instruction that were given on the chromium site tells us how to install the machine on a Ubuntu system. (click here to know about Ubuntu).

Here are the instruction on how to use Chrome OS on Ubuntu.

It's a bit techie so in the next post we will be talking about how to use chrome on windows.

So what is chrome meant for-

Google tells us that most of the users use 90% of their computer to access internet so why not make computer to have just the internet and free users from all hassle of booting the system, worrying about the security, updating the software and all hassles. So they made the system online, you can not use chrome OS without an internet connection.

The User Interface of Chromium OS is very simple and looks like the browser itself, i actually didn't have had much time to discover what all can the OS do but as reports say it is simple, easy , and boots very fast (7 seconds as speculations). To log in into chrome you use your google account user name and password.

But it is full of bugs and needs a lot of work to be done on it.

Google says it is free for now and is asking developers to use and develop the code for it. But we have heard they might commercialize the software. But we all know Google is not the greedy one like Microsoft and hope it would do great with the OS.

Cloud Storage - Everything you save inside Chrome OS is put on the cloud like this notepad application which will sync with Google Docs.
