With an official description, Google Drive is more real than ever

Almost everyday now brings a new hint into what Google is planning for its “GDrive” online storage service. Today, a piece of code found in the Google Pack software bundle includes both a product category and description for GDrive.

via With an official description, Google Drive is more real than ever » VentureBeat.

I’m excited. I’ve messed with Mozy, XDrive and the like, none work like I want, lets hope that GDrive makes the grade. I want either a “network” drive to save to or a self replicating drive available anywhere. Or both. Lets hope GDrive comes soon and gets the job done.

News of the day…

So I’m cruising the ‘net today, working on nothign as usual… Some interesting stories came up today though, here’s a quick peek:

Curious George co-editor found dead: MSNBC

I think it’s a bit odd that just days before the release of the movie this man who helped write several books and many of the short films about Curious George is found dead in trash bags at his Florida home… Something is up here.
Related note:
The Jack Johnson Curious George soundtrack is pretty good, give it a listen.

Walmart to open over 1,500 new stores in the coming years: MSNBC

They opened 341 last year and are expecting more than that this year. When will it end. I seriously cannot stand to see Walmart in every community. Millions of square feet of empty Walmarts are vacant useless to so many communities around the country because Walmart left for a better deal. Millions of people are without adequate, affordable health-care because of Walmart. When will it end?

New Muncie curfew to hold parents responsible WTHR

Muncie isn’t a large town, but its a college town with plenty of mischief to be caused. For the youth of the city that isn’t yet in college a new law will make parents know a little more about what their children are doing. I know that if I was faced with a fine of up to $2,500 I would know exactly where my child was and when he was in the house. Exceptions have been made to allow for school and religious events. But I think it’s about time that cities got more strict about parents being responsible for their children.

Blogger thinks of starting new category Here

I think I’ll call it “Get off my lawn.” After the supposed stereotype of old men who yell at those “damn kids” to get off my lawn. My soapbox if you will… Any thoughts?

A few new ‘casts I listen to

So I have not podcasted in a while as I’ve said before. I have been listening almost non-stop though to just about anything I can get my hands on. At least 2-3 hours per day usually is spent listening to podcasts. I thought I’d take this oppotunity to talk about a few new ‘casts that I’ve been listening to and maybe you’ll like them too.

  • The View from Here – This is actually an old favorite of mine. Harry and Ziva are two jews living in Israel giving their take on the world around them. It’s comedy, but to me it’s not just comedy. It’s a chance for me to get a new perspective on the world from peopel not living in the US. They have thoughts and feelings about the thigns we see on the news each night, and since they are not Americans in America, they have a totally different view on things. I also love the way that Ziva says “Harry!” there’s just something about her voice. Check it out, I’m sure you’ll enjoy an episode.
  • Life of a Law Student Podcast – Neil Wehneman is a Law Student at the University of Cincinnati and he’s podcasting his entire class schedule. In each episode he provides you with a snippet of what he’s been studying in a particular class. What I really enjoy about this podcast is the fact that Neil separates each class into a different feed, so if you only want to learn about torts, you can only recieve tort podcasts. I hope to go to law school one day myself and I find that listening to Neil only makes me want to go more. Check it out and see if you’ve got what it takes.

The last thing I wanted to mention since we’re geekin’ out is the new Yahoo! Podcast search. This is actually a really great tool I think. It provides an easy way to search for podcasts on any topic you can think of and then adds a great feature by allowing you to subscribe directly from the website. That’s right, it adds the subscription right to iTunes. Perfectly executed as far as I’m concerned. I’m usually a Google man myself, I can find just about anythign in seconds there from actual research to stocks and movies. Google is great, but Yahoo! has definitely beat them to the punch on this one. Kudos.
If you’re new to podcasts and don’t know what to listen to, go download iTunes and then head over to the Yahoo! Podcast page and subscribe to a few.

Man I’m a geek

I geek’d out last night and today here’s the skinny:

  • I’ve been looking for online calendar apps such as Google Calendar. No such luck yet, but I hear it’s coming soon. In the meantime I checked out Planzo and Kiko, both are pretty cool. They run on AJAX it appears and both seem to be pretty easy to use. The one thing that they are lacking is integration with all my other stuff. Namely my Gmail on Google. It seems that I’ll have yet another site, with yet another login, everyday.
    I do like Planzo’s daily email, it tells you what is coming up today and even has a weekly reminder that is sent on Sunday. Cool Stuff. Google will be the killer-app though once it’s out.
    In reality though what we all need is a public and private calendar with busy/free blocks that is free, available anywhere and to anyone that we deem fit to see it. It should remind us via email/SMS/telepathy of what is coming up. It should integrate seamlessly with our email/IM/everything.
    Of course this is all a pipedream. I’m just going to wait on the Google Calendar to start working.
