  • The Google+ Hangouts API allows you to develop collaborative apps that run inside of a Google+ Hangout. Hangout apps behave much like normal web apps, but with the addition of the rich, real-time functionality provided by the Hangouts APIs. Apps have the ability to control aspects of the user interface, synchronize data between hangout participants, and respond to various events in the hangout. Google are launching the Hangouts API initially as a Developer Preview. Link : https://developers.google.com/+/hangouts/#utm_campaign=en_us&utm_source=en_us-codesite-ww-e&utm_medium=banner
  • App Inventor A toolkit enabling you to quickly make simple Android apps. App Inventor was originally designed as an educational program to teach children the basics of programming apps. It quickly became adopted by a user community that expanded its capabilities so that more sophisticated Android apps can be made with it -- in fact, some apps made with App Inventor are available in the Android Market. Google actually announced their decision to cease further official development on App Inventor, but they have assured the project will be released to its community as an open- source project Link : http://www.cio.com/article/692467/8_Cool_Google_Labs_Projects_Spared_the_Axe?page=2#slideshow Google Moderator An online tool that lets you create a moderated discussion forum. You come up with a discussion topic -- write a catchy, descriptive headline and short description. Participants interested in this discussion submit questions, and they can vote on which questions they want to see answered most by you (or others you have granted access to respond).

  • Google Transliteration An online translator that converts Roman characters into the phonetic equivalent of another language, as you type. The difference between this tool and Google Translate is that as you type out a word in Roman characters, as you would speak it, Google Transliteration turns it into the word of another language. For example, you don't type "good afternoon" to convert this into Japanese characters (Kanji). Instead, you type out the way you would speak this in Japanese or a close-enough phonetic spelling of what it would sound like), and Google Transliteration will show the Kanji characters for this phrase. Google Transliteration supports 23 languages, including Arabic, Chinese and Hebrew. It is also a simple text editor, allowing you to change the font, font size, font styles, font color, paragraph justification, and indention, and to insert bullet or number lists. The Google Transliteration editor is already built into Blogger and Gmail Link : http://www.cio.com/article/692467/8_Cool_Google_Labs_Projects_Spared_the_Axe?page=9#slideshow
  • Home Automation For years we've been hearing about a refrigerator that orders milk for you when you're running low, but Google wants to expand the idea to the entire home. Its Android @Home platform already has connected light bulbs, coffee pots, and more in the works. On top of that, Google has its eye on moving beyond the home, to a much broader "Internet of Things." At the company's most recent developer conference, it rolled out its open accessory development kit for Android , inviting makers everywhere to get busy connecting anything from small gadgets to big machines Predicting the Future Google is so committed to the future, it should come as no surprise that the company is even interested in predicting it. Another Google investment is in Recorded Future, a company that seeks to parse the universe of information available online for clues about what's to come.

  • The Windows Azure platform includes a cloud services operating system and a set of developer services, which provide the functionality to build applications that span from consumer Web to enterprise scenarios. Windows Azure and SQL Azure are the key components of the Windows Azure platform Windows Azure provides developers with on-demand compute, storage, networking and content delivery capabilities to host, scale and manage Web applications on the Internet through Microsoft data centers. Windows Azure serves as the development, service hosting and service management environment for the Windows Azure platform. Windows Azure is now commercially available in 40 countries Link : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsazure/faq/
  • The Windows Azure Marketplace is an online marketplace for developers and IT Professionals to share, find, buy and sell building block components, training and finished services/applications needed to build complete and compelling cloud services and applications. Microsoft thinks that services expand the opportunity for customers to experience software. The industry is trending towards scenarios that combine client and on-premises server and database offerings with cloud services. This approach to application architecture, development, deployment, and usage is at the core of what Microsoft call Software + Services. Customers of all types demand both: the richness of on premises applications augmented by the flexibility and choice of cloud services. Microsoft sees the Windows Azure platform offering customers more choices, creating additive scenarios and opening up the market for customers to use Microsoft and Microsoft partner solutions in ways never before possible. Microsoft are introducing the Extra Small Windows Azure instance to make the process of development, testing and trial easier for enterprise developers. The Extra Small instance will also make Windows Azure more affordable for developers interested in running smaller applications on the platform. Link : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsazure/faq/
  • Microsoft SQL Azure is a highly available and scalable cloud database service built on SQL Server technologies. With SQL Azure, developers do not have to install, setup, and patch or manage any software. High availability and fault tolerance is built-in and no physical administration is required. Additionally, developers can get productive on SQL Azure quickly by using the same familiar T-SQL based relational model and the same powerful development and management tools used for on-premises databases. Link : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsazure/features/database/ Windows Azure gives you four core storage services that are secure, scalable and easy to access that remain persistent and durable storage in the cloud. Blobs, Tables, and Queues are all available as part of the Windows Azure Storage account, and provide durable storage on the Windows Azure platform. Unlike local storage, blobs, tables, and queues are accessible by multiple applications or application instances simultaneously, and represent dedicated storage instead of temporary Link : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsazure/features/storage/
  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction. It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment. Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change. Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. Link : http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/
  • Amazon Mechanical Turk (beta) Amazon Mechanical Turk is a marketplace for work that requires human intelligence. The Mechanical Turk web service enables companies to programmatically access this marketplace and a diverse, on-demand workforce. Developers can leverage this service to build human intelligence directly into their applications. While computing technology continues to improve, there are still many things that human beings can do much more effectively than computers, such as identifying objects in a photo or video, transcribing audio recordings or researching data details. Traditionally, tasks like this have been accomplished by hiring a large temporary workforce (which is time consuming, expensive and difficult to scale) or have gone undone. Mechanical Turk aims to make accessing human intelligence simple, scalable, and cost-effective. Businesses or developers needing tasks done (called Human Intelligence Tasks or “HITs”) can use the robust Mechanical Turk APIs to access thousands of high quality, low cost, global, on-demand workers—and then programmatically integrate the results of that work directly into their business processes and systems. Mechanical Turk enables developers and businesses to achieve their goals more quickly and at a lower cost than was previously possible.
