Google Chrome OS – operating system of the future?


What is no surprise to anyone interested in technology Google has announced a new operating system to rival Microsoft Windows, Apple OSX and Linux.

The new operating System is called Google Chrome OS and intends to be a lightweight, web centric with speed, simplicity and security as its the key attributes.

Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010 and as everything else Google has done to date it will change the world as we know it.

Today’s photograph comes from Sydney’s Martin Place. I really lied the disproportion between the dominating buildings and small, but central human figures. A young couple on the bench sharing lunch and some conversation.

It is interesting how the curved tower on the right and leaning plants on the left seem to embrace this scene.

Fundraiser for The Smith Family


I have been asked today to support this fund raiser. It is quite out of character for me as usually I post articles and photos that relate to things I encounter myself. I have looked at the fund raiser and although it has a clear commercial context decided to put my support behind it. It is very simple. Please watch a 30 or so seconds promotional video from Microsoft and they will donate $1 per viewer to support Learning for Life program.

How does it relate to the Hyde Park photo? Well this park has a very dark side. Beautiful by day it becomes a refuge for many young people by night. I would hope that some of charity money may prevent a young person from having to live there or allow them to leave this park behind them on a way to a more rewarding and full filling life.
