Google seems to be on a product launching spree, as it launched a new photo service known as Photovine. The service was developed by a company named Slide, which was acquired by Google in 2010 for an estimated $228 million.
The home page of Photovine has nothing but a few links and an image of the application in action. Just like Google+, you can become a member by invitation only. The tagline below the logo states, “plant a photo, watch it grow“. There is not much information beyond this on either the home page, other than a video demonstrating Photovine.
Take a look at the official Photovine video below:
Social networking is an integral part of a most people’s lives today, irrespective of their profession. This is mainly due to the fact that social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ (which is still in its initial stages) keep users connected with their friends and family. Recently, HTC showed off its ChaCha and Salsa at MWC 2011, which took social network integration to a whole new level. The two handsets came with a dedicated Facebook button at the bottom of the phone, allowing users easy one-touch access to the social networking website.
Now, rumors suggest that the next Nexus device could feature a similar button, only this time it will be for Google+ instead. Seems interesting? Well, there is no confirmation regarding this, so it’s better to take the news with a pinch of salt. The info comes from the Facebook page of an individual named Google Plus, who states that he got the information from an “official” Google employee. This button apparently lets users share app info or data with their Google+ contacts at the press of a button. He further claims that the next Google branded handset will be manufactured by HTC. This contradicts earlier reports which suggested that Samsung will be making the next Nexus device, dubbed the Nexus Prime
Simplifies moving from Facebook to the new social networking sensation.
Google+ is the talk of the town and even though it is still in a limited trial run, people seem to be scurrying to get in. To help such people, an Indian developer has launched an app that eases the process of moving from rival Facebook to Google+. The app in question is called Move2Picasa, developed by Pune-based web developer Aman Kumar Jain.
