Subject: Why Is Google Not Supporting The Open Document Formats?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

None of Google services - Android, Chrome OS, Google Drive support Open Document Formats. I am left with puzzling questions why is Google not supporting ODF and locking users into an incompatible and vendor-locked OOXML format? Will Google endorse open standards and Open Document Formats or its users will be forced to use Microsoft's OOXML? I

and the more pick it up the more absurd it seems.

I guess they didn't get the google business modell - and they don't even know that chrome is available for more recent android versions also.

since the webtv stick is just intended to smarten up tv's, (and give them youtube access) why should they put more than a browser on it?

didn't we recently talk about microsoft ip tv and apple tv? Thats the competitors, and not I-Something. But for the formfactor of a thumb drive, definitely a LIKE!.

Not another box collecting dust somewhere near the tv.

I read the whole thing. Every last bit of it is wishful speculation by a rabid Apple fanboi pandering to his readers, who are also rabid Apple fanbois.
All of it is sour grapes. Android is making money for Google whether Apple fanbois admit it or not. Android is also kicking Apple's ass in worldwide shipments so "abandoning" it makes no sense.

The speculation isn't really all that credible either: Google is releasing a non-Android product into their lineup, indicating that Android is on the rocks? Really?

Good to have set this straight and backed up by data from a rabid google fanboy ;)

I for one welcome our new Google overlords.

Anyway, as far as TV is concerned, all I really want is DNLA and YouTube.
Everything else is just candy.

The good guys...

Michele Catalano was looking for information online about pressure cookers. Her husband, in the same time frame,
was Googling backpacks. Wednesday morning, six men from a joint terrorism task force showed up at their house to
see if they were terrorists. Which prompts the question: How'd the government know what they were Googling?

Same story:

Update, 7:05 p.m.: Because the Googling happened at work.

The Suffolk County Police Department released a statement this evening
that answers the great mystery of the day.

Suffolk County Criminal Intelligence Detectives received a tip from a
Bay Shore based computer company regarding suspicious computer searches
conducted by a recently released employee. The former employee.s
computer searches took place on this employee.s workplace computer. On
that computer, the employee searched the terms .pressure cooker bombs.
and .backpacks..

After interviewing the company representatives, Suffolk County Police
Detectives visited the subject.s home to ask about the suspicious
internet searches. The incident was investigated by Suffolk County
Police Department.s Criminal Intelligence Detectives and was determined
to be non-criminal in nature.

Here's the original source, with the update:

And the story's writer (the search guy's wife) clarified:

"We found out through the Suffolk Police Department that the searches involved also things my husband looked up at his old job. We were not made aware of this at the time of questioning and were led to believe it was solely from searches from within our house."

So the guy was home at the time of the search, which means he's probably unemployed ... maybe he should have spent more time at work working and less time Googling for info on pressure cooker bombs. Still, it's kind of douchey of his former employer to go through his search history and send it to the authorities.

I have to admit I'm disappointed. After I read the original story I started Googling all sorts of things to try to catch the attention of PRISM. I do, after all, have a pressure cooker. It cooks things very nicely. It's da bomb!!

But do you also have a backpack large enough to carry it around?

People sending email to any of Google's 425 million Gmail users have no "reasonable expectation" that their communications are confidential, the internet giant has said in a court filing.

I always wished there were <dont make this show up on gmail>tags for emails...</dont....>. I also would love to have a way to keep stupid assholes from importing my emails into facebooks souleater. (Honestly, any person thinking "hey, what a great idea to hand over my login credentials for my email account to facebook in order to send invites to all my mail buddies" should be stripped of any human rights they had left and sent to clean toilets at foxconn factories.)

I'm sure the toilets are very clean at the Foxconn factories. Workers there don't get bathroom breaks.

I think zooer will be happy to know that Google had an outage yesterday.

I think zooer (and Microsoft) will be unhappy to know that during the Google outage, worldwide Internet traffic dropped by 40%.
