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.

Stretch

This man is a well known Sydney Scoobie Seller. He walks with his backpack and a handful of scoobies usually around Town Hall. I always though of him as an intense looking character, imposing and rather unfriendly. It is something in the way he approaches people and looks at them. Today, I received a very nice surprise. I photographed him during the lunch break as he was having a huge stretch on a street bench. Is it a simile I see? It is.
