Online Operating Systems / Web Applications

The time is coming when the computer operating system at home or the office will need to be nothing more than a connection to the Internet. Web Applications and Operating Systems will reside online and even your files will be able to be stored in a secure online area.

Today, businesses utilize internal web applications that reside on a Intranet server to do all types of CRM, order processing, billing, and even word processing. These types of processes are also being done through the Internet with Realtors for example using MLS search services set up through their websites or CRM activities with advanced software for sending out updates to registered individuals.

Google has shown that storing your emails online can be a great benefit for anyone using the service. Storage prices continue to plummet, making it more and more cost effective to store information online. The next step is to have backup storage for your files online. Taking this a step further, by skipping the backup storage solution, with actually keeping your files in a secure area that you can get to from any computer in the world would be a great leapfrog solution.

Word processing is probably one of the most used applications in the world. MS Word leads the charge with powerful features for layout and design for the average person. In fact, I would venture to say that most individuals do not use one tenth of the features that this program provides. Some word processing applications even include spread sheets, bookkeeping, and inventory functions within the same program. See story:

Here are some ways Google and Sun could work together by ZDNet‘s Russell Shaw — No, that’s not real- yet. That’s my mod of how a Google toolbar and a Google Talk prompt could look inside Sun’s StarOffice 8 Impress, StarOffice’s presentation product. Yesterday’s announcement that Google and Sun Microsystems will promote each other’s products brings to mind an old proverb “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”Sun is a […]

The natural progression or evolution of the Internet will be able to have a virtual operating system. In fact this is already taking place. If you take a look at the way things are going now, we have online banking, automatic bill pay, credit card processing, and even great software which allows me to publish on the Internet.

I recently read that Microsoft is concerned about the strides that Google is making into territory that once was regarded as MS only. Several writers have wondered out loud if Google has an operating system in the offering. Maybe the operating system is already there in the form of the virtual Internet world that we all live in. It would be a piece of cake for someone to offer a great word processing program online. Google Docs

Imagine what it would be like to compose a research article on super conductors or hydrogen fuel cells and every time the article is saved, automatic searches are configured based on the keywords in the article. Simply hit the link and you are taken to the keyword searches. This would have the advantage of providing relevant information, and with algorithms built around spurring the mind on into new territories would make better writers of us all. On the right side of the article could be related advertisements. Composing a business article to be printed and postal mailed or attached to an email would be as simple as composing and attaching it to an email or printing it out on your local or networked printer and slipped into the mailbox.

Building Pay-Per-Click PPC Ads

The Google Adsense program is a great way to earn some extra dollars for your website.

Sometimes for various reasons the normal pay-per-click, PPC ads are not available from the server and what will be displayed is a Public Service ad (PSA).

Consider replacing these ads with your own advertisements. Sure you can get other feeds to substitute the Adsense feed, but in the long run you may not be maximizing the website for the best sales tool available to your business.

By crafting your own advertising you can actually be building up a number of advertisements for future PPC AdWords campaigns to run for your company. This way you can get an actual feel of how the ad will look on similar sites.

Some business folks may have an aversion to displaying advertisements on their web site to begin with. The argument is that if someone has come to your B2B or B2C site why in the world would you want to send them away. While this argument certainly has validity from a quick look, another argument could be made. With competition blocking filtering and displaying ads that are related but not directly in competition with your business you are actually providing a service for your Clients and Customers and who are much more likely to return in the future. Additionally, if your product or service is strong then you will get the cream of the crop staying with you.

Many times the normal PPC advertising feed will not display the standard advertisements because there simply is not enough content in the pages for the algorithm to figure what is the best ads fit. Other times, there might not be enough advertisers that are bidding on the keywords in the page. But no matter what the reason take the time to generate some advertisements for your own business. It will pay sales dividends in the end.

The Googolbyte is 10 to the 100 Power

Wow! What a change is in store for us in the near future.

I always say that time seems to be moving faster but technology change is moving faster than the speed of light.

  1. They say that technology doubles every eighteen months – OLD FACT.
  2. Turn the search engine page. New search fact, it is impossible to keep up.

Overnight it seems like we have gone from computers that were super expensive to where now anyone can afford one. Prices on hardware components have provided a interesting situation. It seems as though every time an engineer thinks we have reached the limits of making the electronics smaller, faster, or more powerful, is blown out the door by the next new round of technology improvements.

With components such as memory and hard drives plus new super drives the information that can be stored will reach beyond what we can imagine. I remember when I thought 20 megabytes was a lot of memory. Now gigabytes and terabytes for hard drives are common place.

“Apollo, we have lift off!” The Petabyte disk drives. This size equals one million times a gigabyte or 1015 or 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes. Those numbers are so large in fact that they are hard to comprehend exactly how large that is. Some naysayers have said this is a long way off, well you better look again.

So how is this going to help you?

First off, take a look at Google. They have blasted off on their email service that is out of this world. I have been using it for some time now and I do not know what I would do with out it. I never ever, never ever, have to throw any emails away. I can always get to any email anywhere in the world.

Their anniversary gift to the world is to expand the storage capabilities beyond what anyone can imagine. On a previous April Fool’s day the naysayers were saying that it was an April Fool’s joke from Google to offer one gigabyte of email. Things certainly have changed since then. Well, I think we are blasting off and going to the moon. Next stop and beyond is the:
