After spending a few minutes on Google, I was not able to find a direct post by anyone on how to set up Live Mail with Google Apps for Domains. Just in case anyone else is interested, here it is. Instead of describing the configs line by line, let me just present some pics, yeah?
Hope some of you find this useful.
Although this wasn’t exactly publicly flaunted by Google or Sun, news has already traveled around the web a few times about the inclusion of StarOffice in the new Google Pack. Is StarOffice really that much better than OOo? Google seems to thinks so. And why do you think this is? Because there’s more money in endorsing StarOffice, that’s why.
FSJ lamented about the “Googbalization” that we are currently seeing. At the speed of growth that Google is experiencing, I don’t believe there is anyone out there who knows the implication of Google’s information conquests that isn’t afraid of the Booglers. Imagine if it is that easy for you to find dirt on people you barely know through Google, how easy would it be for others to pull the same on you? Once in a long while I try to Google myself, and just thinking about what kind of stuff people can dig up about me is enough to make myself cry to sleep. Instant celebrity status without the real fame and fortune that the real celebs possess.
Just think– one day there could be a Fake Me out there who knows every move I’d make, blogging about my fake thoughts and tainting my fake image. The HORROR!!! Don’t tell me it couldn’t happen because there are already quite a few FFSJ’s out there!
Check this out. (You may need to be already signed into Google) Yes, I am aware that it’s only available as an extension to GMail and Picasa right now, but knowing Google, an API is not too far off. When you can buy extra space, there is no telling what Google will allow you to do with it. Unless you are Amazon or Microsoft (in which cases I’d be worried), if I were in the business of selling online storage, I would be afraid. Very afraid.
.Mac – Watch out!
It’s a good thing Google is finally trying to catch up on the mobile space– Microsoft has had a focus on it with Windows Mobile, Apple’s march seems to be quite healthy. and Nokia has quite a comfortable lead in this market that will ultimately replace our laptops.
Perhaps it’s clever marketing that Google would wait and release its own versions of hardware and software for mobile devices AFTER the market was turnd RED HOT by the iPhone?
