Google Gmail motion.


It was April fools (만우절).

어쨌든 구글은 대단하네요. 만우절 (April fools) 농담도 정말 그럴싸하게 세계적인 스케일로 하다니.

April fools를 확인한 순간 깜짝 놀랐습니다. 정말 빵 터졌지요. 하하하

Gmail motion_using simple gestures

Creativity | 2011. 4. 1. 19:46 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

역시 구글은 세계 최고의 회사가 맞는 것 같습니다. 항상 기존의 생각 (Stereotype)들을 타파하고 새로운 개념들을 도입해서 사람들이 편리하고 재미있게 좀 더 나은 미래를 살 수 있도록 철저하게 기획하고 준비하고 개발하는 모습들이 아릅답니다.


그런 구글 (Google)이 이번에는 기존 이메일 (email)에 대한 고정관념을 날려버리고 동작 (Motion)을 활용하여 이메일을 쓰고, 수정하고 발송하고 열어 볼 수 있는 Motion email을 개발하여 베타 (Beta) 테스트 중입니다. Gmail Motion.



아직은 베타 테스트 중이라서 완벽하진 않겠지만 그래도 한번쯤은 시도해 볼만 한 것 같습니다.

이메일을 쓰고 보내고 열어보고 수정하는 동작들이 좀 어색한 것 같지만 한편으로는 재미있는 것 같습니다.

특히 발송하는 동작 (Motion)이 가장 인상깊은 깊은 것 같습니다. 이메일을 발송하기 위해서 자신의 손에 직접 침을 발라서 봉투에 붙여서 발송하는 모습이 재미있네요.

How the World Searched with Google in 2010

Creativity | 2010. 12. 12. 07:19 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

Since it's birth in 1998, Google has become our gateway to the Web

(its supremacy threatened somewhat now by Apple and Facebook).

It processes over 1 billion search requests every day, each request giving

an inkling of what matters to people in the moment. In 2010, 65% of daily

searches were conducted through Google. It only seems right then to look

back at what was close to people's hearts in 2010 through the eyes of Google. 


In the video Zeitgeist 2010, Google shows us top events and moments from

2010 from around the globe through Google search, images, and video.


For more on the spirit of 2010, check out the most popular and fastest

rising searches in 2010 on Google. One very popular young man:

16 year old Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Other dominant queries: iPad, Chatroulette (which randomly pairs strangers

for live webcam chats) and FIFA World Cup. People did search for financial

crisis and calamities in Haiti and Pakistan, but apparently the economy

and humanitarian disasters could not compare with the fastest rising list: 

  1. chatroulette
  2. ipad
  3. justin bieber
  4. nicki minaj
  5. friv
  6. myxer
  7. katy perry
  8. twitter
  9. gamezer
  10. facebook

Google's E-Bookstore

Education | 2010. 12. 9. 01:21 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

Now that Google launched their long-waited e-bookstore. We can see

what is going in e-book market with Amazon, Google, and others.

Google has launched its long-awaited e-bookstore, Google E-books, bringing more than 3 million books — many of them free — to any device with a web browser in the U.S.


The initiative, previously known as Google Editions, offers an alternative sales model from the dominant players in the space, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple.


Instead of purchasing e-books through a single online store to read only on compatible software (i.e. books bought from the Kindle Store can only be read on Kindle apps), Google (Google) lets consumers buy books either from its store or any other online vendor that sells books in EPUB and PDF formats, and read them on any device with a web browser.


This allows independent booksellers with loyal customer bases to advertise and sell Google e-books via their own venues and take an (as of yet undisclosed) cut of the revenue, an opportunity previously denied to them. It also allows consumers to choose whom to purchase their books from on Google’s platform, just as consumers can choose between third-party sellers on Amazon. Google E-books is also launching with an affiliates program in place.


It’s a smart move on Google’s end, as the company will have potentially thousands of booksellers and affiliates marketing on behalf of its service.

In addition to a Google Web Reader application, users will be able to read Google e-books on apps for Android (Android), iPhone and iPad devices. Reading content will automatically sync across devices, so if you begin reading in the morning in the iPad, you’ll be able to pick up where you left off on your iPhone or Android device on the subway, and again on your office computer during your lunch break.


Nearly 4,000 publishers will be providing content through Google E-books at launch, including all of the major players: Random House, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, etc.
