2009 has proved to be very exciting when it comes to new features and enhancements. Many companies, especially big brands, have taken recession as a pause for self analysis and they have been constantly upgrading their infrastructures for the time when economics crisis will be over. Search engines are no way behind and I have noticed some remarkable changes from Microsoft and Google. Yahoo, although being a major player among search engines, has not yet taken active part in the recent Search Engine Wars. Microsoft is Becoming Social and Responsive Major changes/announcements from Microsoft includes a new social media platform "Vine" and a new search engine phenomena coined as "decision engine" ,"BING". Microsoft had a poor social appearance, as compared to Google, i.e. Microsoft had been less responsive to public opinion and criticism as much as Google. Despite this,... (more)

LA Council Insists On Added Security Breach Penalty As It Oks Move to Google’s ‘Cloud’

The Los Angeles City Council voted today to move the city's 30,000 email users to a system provided by Google, but only after a provision that the city be compensated if there is security breach in the data held on Google's servers. Consumer Watchdog had said that the security provisions for the Google "cloud computing" system for email and other applications remained untested and opposed the $7.25 million contract. However, the nonpartisan, nonpartisan consumer group had argued that if the contact were approved, it should contain a provision requiring "liquidated damages" or a payment in the event of a security breach.  Council voted to add the penalty provision 9-3. "Los Angeles residents cannot be sure the city's confidential or sensitive data will be secure," said John M. Simpson, consumer advocate with Consumer Watchdog, "but at least they know there will be a pe... (more)

Unix Co-Creator Writes New Open Source Programming Language for Google

Open Source Journal on Ulitzer Ken Thompson (pictured) and Rob Pike, a couple of the revered old soldiers who wrote Unix, Plan 9 and Inferno at Bell Labs – and programming languages like B, without which C probably wouldn’t exist, and Limbo – have come up with an experimental new programming language called Go that Google, their current refuge, open sourced Tuesday under a BSD-style license. If it catches on, it would be the first major systems language to emerge in a decade. One of the small Go team compares it to Java, calling it “performant but garbage collected” and “vastly more enjoyable to code in.” Go’s primary attribute appears to be that it’s fast. It reportedly compiles to machine code very quickly thanks to a couple of Plan 9-beholden compilers. Google says “Go combines the development speed of working in a dynamic language like Python” – Google does dot... (more)

Google Wave: The Possibilities for Patient-Centered Communication

Google introduced Google Wave  last week to much acclaim. Several aspects of the product have tremendous potential for patient-centered communication online. The question becomes will the developer community respond during the developer period by building applications that takes advantage of the live collaboration tool or will HIPAA considerations nip the potential of Google Wave in the bud for the Health IT community? ...

Facepalm: Google Wave Choice of XMPP Not the Death of HTTP

Okay, folks, it’s time to stop declaring the death of protocols/technologies prematurely. Please? Especially when such proclamations are clearly not representative of reality. From ElasticVapor :: Life in the Cloud In Google's announcement what I found most fascinating was the protocol they choose for the basis of their new realtime vision. It wasn't HTTP but instead XMPP was selected as the foundation for this decentralized and interoperable vision. What this means in very simple terms is Google has declared the HTTP protocol is dead, an inefficient relic of the past. A protocol that was never designed with the requirements for the reality of a global realtime cloud. [emphasis added] If you dig into the Google WAVE Embed API code far enough, you’ll get to a core RPC/gadget library that clearly indicates the API is still taking advantage of HTTP. It’s using XMLHttp... (more)

TOGAF Goes Eclipse

The Open Group, a technology-neutral consortium, today released an Eclipse plug-in that puts TOGAF 9 capabilities literally at your fingertips. The TOGAF Customizer was donated to The Open Group by Capgemini. Based on the Eclipse Process Framework (EPF), an open-source project managed by the Eclipse Foundation, the TOGAF Customizer can be used to implement TOGAF 9 more easily.

[Disclosure: The Open Group is a sponsor of BriefingsDirect podcasts.] The new customizer contains all the content of TOGAF 9 in a structured and editable form, including guidelines, concepts, and checklists, as well as detailed work breakdown structures for the framework’s new and improved architecture development method (ADM).

Google Goes on Offense against Office

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Google is doing something very un-Google. It's stooping to advertise. What started a few months ago with "Go Google" billboards on 101 in Silicon Valley, the West Side Highway in New York, the Mass Pike in Boston and the Ike in Chicago touting Google Apps went international Monday in France, Japan, the UK, Canada, Australia and Singapore at train stations and airports as well as print ads in the Economist, the New York Time, Forbes and the Daily Telegraph and web sites like FT.com and Times Online. Google's trolling for frustrated, cash-strapped Microsoft and IBM business users and claims to have converted two million businesses - up from 1.75 million in June - and 20 million people - up from 15 million - in over 100 countries and over 40 languages to its cloud-based applications. Although Goog... (more)

Microsoft to Data-Mine Facebook & Twitter

Twitter on Ulitzer Microsoft has cut non-exclusive deals with both Facebook and Twitter for Bing to search their real-time data feeds. Google has followed suit at least with Twitter, but Facebook is the prize because it has like 40 million updates a day from its 300 million users. Not all Facebook updates will be searched by Bing, however, only the ones made available to the wider public. Facebook, where Microsoft has an equity stake, will apparently provide users with a numbers of new tools to do so. It is unclear how much Microsoft is paying. The Twitter integration is already in beta. The deals suggest that Twitter, which has raised $155 million in venture capital, will see its first revenue since ads will follow. Terms were not disclosed. ... (more)

LA to Go with Google Apps on Condition . . .

Google App Engine Platform on Ulitzer The city of Los Angeles has okayed a $7.2 million deal with CSC to rip out a lot of its existing Novell GroupWise e-mail systems and whatnot and replace it with Google Apps provided CSC agrees to pay a pre-set penalty if there's a security breach. They still need to dicker about that according to the AP. The city pushed off the decision when the cloud started having a string of problems and the cops and the City Attorney's Office are worried about data security. The councilman who introduced the penalty amendment is quoted as saying, "It's unclear to me whether we're on the cutting edge or if we're on the edge of a cliff about to step off." Novell offered free upgrades but couldn't save the deal. Microsoft and others tried for the contract too. Failure to win it is seen as a black eye for Microsoft and showcase site for Google. ...
