Google has extended its chrome palette with Chrome Operating System aided towards netbooks, at first, for people who spend most of the time on the web. As it seems Google knows that soon we will use Open Source everywhere, including music distribution model, plus Cloud Computing, which means user will keep files of data on the net, but not in his home computer and plus HTML5 is already on the corner. Google Chrome OS, of course, is free and already supported by number of big names, as Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Texas Instruments, Toshiba.
So Web as OS really becomes closer a little bit, as Chrome OS still is in infant age. Will it be competitor of Multi-Principal OS Construction Gazelle Web Browser from Microsoft? Not sure. Both companies feel smell of the fresh and change paradigm we have used on web. Both show direction on which the browsers of the future will lead us.

If you are a digital native, your smile will accompany next reading. Taptu (mobile search engine) announced that its users make about 1 mln searches a day (mobile searches!). But TRAI informed India’s mobile subscriber base now reached 403.7 mln. Since Gartner, a global research firm, said the number of users making payment via mobile will be more than 190 million by the end of 2012, you can understand why Google announced a beta Mobile AdSense program for iPhone and Android. So making mobile mo with mobile AdSense becomes real. The one point - you have to have a free application that gets 100.000+ pageviews/day.

At the time when bands promote themselves at MySpace and Youtube instead of their own website and ad campaigns direct people to participate in a social media rather than visit a branded website, Eric Schmidt notices: '...this is the beginning of the real win of cloud computing, of applications, of the internet, which is changing the paradigm that we’ve all grown up with so that it just works regardless of platform or hardware you’re using' and introduces the HTML5 (the must read for ALL webdesigners and SEO Freelancers too). Latest Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome (still not IE :) already support it. The most interesting HTML5 brings are - Web As Platform - canvas, audio / video, geolocation, web workers, appcache / database.
Since Microsoft is goes to launch an $80 million to $100 million campaign for Bing, the search engine, and Wolfram|Alpha already shows a new approach to a new kind of knowledge-based computing, it is clear SEO in the future will progress at the same rate as SE' do. That means a lot of work for SEO Freelancer. As grandpa Brecht had been told: "Learn to learn that to learn". And don't forget to specify your Twitter on your business card.

Umair Haque's advice is golden: Take one of the big ideals (democracy, peace, transparency, equality, and so on) and apply it to an ailing industry that is in need of transformation or at least some serious disruption: health care, finance, news, energy, government - you name it. Combine that with the principles of the Twitter economy - transparency, instantification, collaboration, and free sharing - and you have a winner.
