I read the blog of Google Compute Engine. The preview of this product is available for everyone. That is good to have an option of Amazon EC2. We can create virtual instance in the Google. But it doesn't like Amazon EC2, you can choose your OS template. Anyway, that is good to have an choice rather than Amazon.

SSD is so good. I planned to upgrade all of our dev pcs to use SSD. It can bring the huge performance to our pcs, but the cost is so high. We have a lot of data in each PC. At least, we need 256GB, my PC even need 512GB. That costs us all of money. SSD is still not affordable for the small business like us.
I am using Viber in Android for around a year. That is very cool, it binded with my mobile number. Yesterday, I found there got a major update and it has Desktop version. That is great! I got Desktop version installed. It can use the same account with my android. Therefore, I can send message to other people with my desktop. That is much easier to type via keyboard.I love it!
Recently, I have talked with a number of web developers. That is very interesting. Some of them have very strong programming skills. Some of them have very strong Graphic Designer. The key point is Web Developer = Programmer+Graphic Designer. Interesting!
Nowadays, Social Media is getting more important. Most of people have facebook or twitter accounts, maybe both. I found most of my friends spent more time on these social media rather surf on net. They are "addicted" to use Social Media for getting the latest updates from their friends. In the old time, we use the banner ads on the websites, because a lot of people like to browse the websites. Nowadays, we need to use Social Media Marketing to reach our potential customers, because so many people are using Social Media. Moreover, the Social Media can have more interactions between users and vendors to provide the useful information.
