I think most of the readers of this blog have a Google wave invite by this time, if they actually want one that is.  I think most of you are much like me and haven’t done a whole lot with it yet either.  There is a Google Wave guide written by Gina Trapani, ie LifeHacker, and it looks really good.  She is selling an e-book for a very reasonable $6 but more importantly she has the whole book on-line for free so you can get  a full look at it to see if you want it.

Google Voice: Calling Canada is free eh?

Last night Google announced that calls to Canada using Google Voice are now free. Originally this was free via Grand Central, but Google has now extended the offering to Google Voice users as well. Though the service is only available in the US, you can at least call your Canadian brethren for free. While this is great news, I am still awaiting the GV mobile web app for iPhone.

I found this at the BBC and I hesitate to even mention it as it is usually just old news by time it hits an actual media outlet but….I didn’t actually know this so you can laugh at me in the comment section. Google while they have been crushing everyone in the search department still has had a number of competitors try and knock them down a peg. Cuil and the Microsoft one are the first ones that jump to mind. (more…)

Hack to remove Gmail Ads from email

Google has made no secret that they scan your email to deliver ads that you might be interested in based on the content of email. Advertisements such as these is what allows us to enjoy all of Google’s free services. Frankly, the ads are unobtrusive and dont really bother me. However, I might be in the minority here so for those of you who do find these ads anoying, by adding a specific target words to your signature, those ads are a thing of the past. (more…)

The folks over at TheAppleBlog have posted a couple of tips to make your user experience easier for those of you who have a Google Voice Account. Many folks were quite upset over the removal of GV Mobile from the App Store (BTW, ATT has more or less placed the blame at the steps of Apple), but some took solace that its still available via Cydia.

While doing a bit of poking around I found Google Wave. I apologize if I am late to the party on this one but things started to tie together for me today and it does deal with the more mobile computing.

So quickly what is Google Wave. As with all things Google it is on the web and accessed through a browser. They are touting it as a collaboration tool and it will definitely do this and I am hoping so much more. I have talked with some of you about what is next for communication, will it kill email? Twitter? Google wave is what is next I don’t know if it will kill email or twitter but it will be the next form of communication. It has an improved concept of email, IM, and blogging built in as well as doc sharing and file sharing.

What got me excited is (more…)

Just saw this and thougth I would pass it on. Google CEO stepped down from Apple board of directors. Not totally centered around the denial of the Google Voice app but it sounds like it does play a part in the whole corporate game to me. Here is the link to the article I read if you want to take a gander at it yourself.

Thanks to Patrick Beja for the tweet.
