Anyone who depends on organic search for traffic already knows about Google’s Panda and Penguin updates, but what is the impact for them? For years Google would reward newly launched websites with good search engine rankings if the webmaster adhered to a steady protocol of link building. Of course there would be some who would abuse this system, but for the most part folks who built good content rich websites needed a boost in the beginning, and solid backlinking practices were acceptable for years, that’s until Google decided to change the game.

Google, together with its partner Samsung, launched a new Chromebook and its first desktop Chromebox today. The most important change to the new Samsung Series 5 Chromebook is that it is significantly faster. While earlier versions featured a battery-friendly Intel Atom chip, these first Chromebooks often felt underpowered. This new version features an Intel Core chip, as well as 4GB of RAM, an HD camera, two USB 2.0 ports and a 1280×800 display. Pricing starts at $449 for the WiFi-only version. While this is a nice update, what’s more interesting here is the launch of Google’s first Chromebox ($329), a Mac Mini-like desktop version of the Chromebook that features more ports than the Chromebook, though it is missing an SD card reader. Otherwise, though, its specs are pretty similar to the laptop version. This is the first time Google is officially putting ChromeOS on a desktop machine, something it hopes will make the browser-centric operating system more appealing to business customers.
The new Chromeboxes will come to Best Buy in the U.S. in the coming weeks. In the U.K., they are now available at PC World and Currys stores.

The Screenshot you are looking above is the latest brand new look of google.com, as of 11th Feb 2011. I am impressed how google is going with this new design. What they made is a tab style look in the top menu bar. If your still haven’t got it, here is the old google.com design. HERE
Now many people around the world will comment on this new design, some will say its too much like msn.com style. I don’t care, for me its ok as long it does not take too much time to load. I somehow think loading speed of google.com makes it stand for others.
As of now, the design has not been updated on google.co.uk and many other countries default google domain. Till now only in US google.com
So tell me, do you like the new design of google.com?
Finally. Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It’s been talked about, it’s been rumored, it’s had spy shots taken, but all that was unofficial. Next week that all changes when, according to Mobilized, Google officially shows off the next major version of its open source operating system.
Everyone knows Android 3.0 is optimized for tablets and will be bringing some new feature sets, and it’s even been shown off a bit from afar. But this time it’s personal: real people will be getting their hands on actual demo units to see just what it can really do.
Admittedly, it’s not the most advanciest of advances: next month the Motorola Xoom is scheduled to hit the street, and shortly after that the new LG Tablet will be out on T-Mobile’s network. Both use the new Android 3.0 as their operating system.
So what though? For those that have been waiting eagerly to see just what’s what with the new OS, the time will come next Wednesday, in Mountain View. Sadly, mere mortals aren’t invited, but there should be plenty of coverage from every major tech blog. As for other announcements that may or may not happen at the event, Google is tight-lipped – but don’t be surprised to see something unexpected.
