"Cloud" Stuff - from Google!

This is real "cloud" stuff from Google, and - without doubt in my mind - the next issue that "disbelievers" will pick the bones of Google over...!
Don't forget - NOBODY (certainly NOT Google) demands or insists that you use Google products, but the problem is that they are excellent, and in particular - THEY ARE FREE.....!(Ed)

When Google launch their Chrome OS (hopefully later this year) they will be bringing a relatively new concept (cloud computing) to the mainstream, apparently one big challenge for Google has been creating a print system for local printers.
As the operating system will be entirely web-based you will not be able to simply put in your driver CD and install your printer, instead Google need to develop a reliable system which will allow you to print to locally connected and shared printers.
Apparently to do this Google will in affect have to act as a print server, therefore when printing a document you will send data to their Cloud Print system, which will then send print jobs to the correct printer.
Their Cloud Print system is still under development, and I would have thought it would be under development for a while as their target is to “build a printing experience that enables any app (Web, desktop, or mobile) on any device to print to any printer anywhere in the world”.
If you check out Cnet you can find out more about Chrome OS’s Cloud Print system, also the image below shows a rough diagram of how their system will work.

The tablets are really coming thick and fast now. After exciting first pictures of the HP Slate tablet, we now have details on the Android equipped Cruz Tablet from Velocity Micro.
As reported from Phandroid, this tablet is thought to be ‘coming soon’ and packs a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen and an 800mhz processor. On top of that you’ll have full Flash 10.1 support and expandable memory via SD.
Interestingly, you’ll be able to purchase new content for the Cruz via the unique ‘Cruz Market’- hopefully we’ll bring you more details on this soon.
It has been confirmed that the device will run Android 2.1, but if this device gains an update to 2.2 Froyo, then things could really get interesting in relation to competition with the mighty iPad.
Let us know your thoughts on the Cruz. Interested in this alternative or not?
