Offline Google Docs

Check out the news! Our team has a real affinity for free-spirited types, and so we spend a lot of time thinking up ways to make Google Docs friendlier even to people on the go. If you’re one of those, you already know how you can access your Google Docs from anywhere, how nice it is to avoid having to email yourself files or back up docs with a thumbdrive,  [ Read More ]

Google Apps – free from IT

I’ve been sitting on this article all day. I’m not sure where I stand on the issue – but I still feel that it’s something I should bring to your attention: Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) today announced Google Apps Team Edition as the simplest and fastest way for groups of employees and students to collaborate within an organization using Google Apps™. Once users verify their business or school email address, they  [ Read More ]

Flight info from Google

I’m not sure I would have even thought to try this – but it’s pretty darn cool: Alert! Cool Googlosity Feature! On a hunch, I just typed the carrier name and number of Margaret’s plane flight into the Google search box, and Google correctly parsed that data and offered as the first search result a link to the actual status page for that flight — but on the search results  [ Read More ]

Public Google Calendars

Did you know that Google had public calendars that you could add to your personal calendar? I didn’t – not until someone in one of the classes I was teaching pointed it out. This is why I love teaching small, hands-on type classes, I always walk away learning something from the students. Anyway, if you search for holidays for example you can get the holidays for several countries and add  [ Read More ]

New Addition to Google

It looks like Google is experimenting with a Digg-like search over at Google Labs (info found via TechCrunch) The new search would let logged in users sort/rate their search results: This experiment lets you influence your search experience by adding, moving, and removing search results. When you search for the same keywords again, you’ll continue to see those changes. If you later want to revert your changes, you can undo  [ Read More ]

Last note on Google Presentations …

Well, maybe not, but I do have another note to add. I was singing the praises of Google Presentation for a while … and I still think it’s pretty neat, but it may not be the answer for me. I was working with my fellow presenters on a presentation using Google Presentation … but today I wanted to export as PPT so I could add notes pages to help me  [ Read More ]

Google Street Views – New Locations

Back when street view was released for Google, I was hiding my head in 100 books, but I did bookmark the announcement. Now, Download Squad has pointed out that Google now has 6 new locations on street view – including Philadelphia! I could have used that a couple of weeks ago when I got turned around coming out of the subway and walked 6 blocks in the wrong direction!! Technorati  [ Read More ]

Google Transit

This is a nifty new tool if you live in (or are visiting) one of the few areas that Google has maps for. Google Transit lets you plan itineraries using public transportation in 19 locations in the U.S. and all of Japan. Here’s a sample using the examples in Oregon posted on the Transit search page. Pretty nifty, but since the cities I visit (Philadelphia, D.C., & New York) are  [ Read More ]

Google Calendar Goodies

One of the great things about doing hands on workshops is that there is always someone there to push you learn something you didn’t know! Or someone there to tell you something you didn’t know. Now, some instructors may not like that – but I’m all for it! On Tuesday, Tim Siftar of Drexel University asked me we could embed Google Calendars into our websites. My answer? “I dun oh”  [ Read More ]

Google Presentations

As I mentioned earlier, I gave a Tech Topics session last night for the Philadelphia SLA Chapter. Well, a few hours before I left work for Philadelphia, I got an email informing me that Google had added presentations to their office suite. I have tried to use some other collaborative presentation suites and always ended up going back to PowerPoint, but Google Presentations really has some awesome features! Its interface  [ Read More ]
