Google Apps updates: Enough to compete with Office 2010?
ZD Net
Christopher Dawson shares his thoughts on how he thinks Google Apps will stack up to Microsoft Office 2010.

“Can Apps compete with Office? Not feature-for-feature and even most organizations who go Google will probably use Office, InDesign, or other desktop products to make production-ready documents and websites. However, groups can design highly effective workflows around creation of content in the cloud, with a solid spit-shine on the desktop. Depending on their needs, others can simply push Apps content straight to the web and make use of its webcentricity (yes, I think that’s a new word; expect me to use it more because I like it). In these cases, it doesn’t need to compete feature-for-feature; it needs to make it easy to work in a browser instead of on a computer. In that way, Apps is not just competitive but utterly dominant.”

Apple to Put AMD Inside?

Dave Courbanou writes why Apple may start offering AMD processors in their PC products.

“According to AppleInsider, Apple may be courting AMD in a possible CPU switch-a-roo. Nothing is official yet, but AppleInsider is reporting that “people familiar with the matter” have noticed AMD execs on Apple’s campus and commuter coach buses. Is Apple really looking to switch processors – or at least offer AMD options to gain price leverage over Intel?.”

“News continues to trickle out about Toshiba’s upcoming tablets, which we learned just last week would come in both Windows and Android flavors and would be shipping before the year is through. Now it seems that both versions, despite offering different designs, will offer NVIDIA Tegra 2 internals.”
