If you always wanted to try out the Google Wave, here’s some good news. Google has now made the web application open to all. Wave, targeted for real-time communication and collaboration, was originally announced by Google on May 27, 2009. Since its launch, the application’s access was initially restricted and membership was based on ‘invitation-only’.
Lowell McAdam, CEO of Verizon Wireless has revealed that the company is closely working with Google to come up with a new tablet computer. So, will this be a “win-win” for both Google and Verizon again? Well…we have seen Android phones piling up in the Verizon network and they all have been quite successful. This collaboration to build the “iPad rival” will only strengthen the bond between these two companies.
Google has released a new update for Goggles that will add a translation feature. All you need to do is just point the phone camera, highlight the text and click the shutter/camera button. If it appears to be a legit text, the application will offer a “Translate” option. Currently Goggles recognizes English, French, Italian, German and Spanish, but it can translate into various other languages, about 17 of them!
