Chrome 8 goes final with PDF viewer, Web Store support | Electronista - http://www.electronista.com/article...
Google today quietly released a finished version of Chrome 8. The stable release adds a new built-in PDF viewer that, like Safari, saves having to use a companion app. The tool is sandboxed to prevent a rogue PDF from compromising the browser and posing a security threat to the rest of the system. Although not directly mentioned, developers have also revealed that Chrome 8 should have the underlying framework for the Chrome Web Store. Google's portal will let users shop for web-based apps, such as Flash games or HTML-based productivity tools, without having to visit separate sites. Access to the store isn't currently active.

Level 3 Communications Issues Statement Concerning Comcast's Actions - MarketWatch - http://www.marketwatch.com/story...
"On November 19, 2010, Comcast informed Level 3 that, for the first time, it will demand a recurring fee from Level 3 to transmit Internet online movies and other content to Comcast's customers who request such content. By taking this action, Comcast is effectively putting up a toll booth at the borders of its broadband Internet access network, enabling it to unilaterally decide how much to charge for content which competes with its own cable TV and Xfinity delivered content. This action by Comcast threatens the open Internet and is a clear abuse of the dominant control that Comcast exerts in broadband access markets as the nation's largest cable provider. "On November 22, after being informed by Comcast that its demand for payment was 'take it or leave it,' Level 3 agreed to the terms, under protest, in order to ensure customers did not experience any disruptions.

Official Google Enterprise Blog: A bridge to the cloud: Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office now available to early testers - http://googleenterprise.blogspot.com/2010...
Users of Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 can sync their Office documents to the Google cloud, without ever leaving Office. Once synced, documents are backed-up, given a unique URL, and can be accessed from anywhere (including mobile devices) at any time through Google Docs. And because the files are stored in the cloud, people always have access to the current version.

Google Offered To Buy Twitter For $2.5-$4 Billion – Sources - http://www.businessinsider.com/google-...
Earlier this year, as part of an on-going dialogue between Google's corporate development team and Twitter, Google floated the idea of an acquisition with a price around $2.5 billion, we've heard from a source close to an executive involved in the talks. We'd caution that this was not a formal offer – more of a casual offer to offer. The overture was refused – even characterized as "insulting."
