In fact, Dell quietly discontinue all high end Dell DJ series in late December and early January without doing much announcement regarding this incident.

I See Google Everywhere !!

Monday 9 January 2006 @ 12:18 pm

All sorts of news about Google Pack started to circulate in all major news centers in the past few days. Basically it’s a package consists of freeware and paid software range from unique software developed by Google like Google Earth, to common software such as AntiVirus, Spyware Remover and Web Browser. Google Pack comes in handy and will probably be the first set of software you would like to install after a fresh reformat of Windows OS. Anyway, the only one thing I think Google Pack is lacking is a freeware Firewall.

After getting to know about Google Pack, another news from Google surprised the world by announcing the introduction of Google Video Store that will enable users to buy or rent video content provided by independent producers and film makers. In fact, Google Video service has been accepting uploads of video clips since April 2005. Now it has been expended to accept independent content producers and enable users to download it for a fee. For the time being, contents from CBS (e.g. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Survivor and The Amazing Race) and the National Basketball Association (NBA), plus music videos from Sony BMG will be offered.

Motorola knows the power of Google is getting bigger in any industry they involved, hence announced a partnership with Google on Jan 5th, 2006, which will put a dedicated Google button on selected Motorola mobile handsets in order to enable users to search via Google at any time. Motorola has come out the world first iTunes enabled mobile phone last year, now the first “G-button” Motorola handsets are expected to be released early in 2006.

I’m waiting for Victoria Secret to come out a thong with Google button on it and call it G-String. Mean while, I see Google everywhere. Can anyone tell me is Google going to take over the web? :)
