Google just added a new link on their Google Labs page that says "Picasa for Linux". Right now, it simply gives us a 404 page when clicking the link, but this is still very good news for Linux users.
Picasa is a pretty good photo organizer that has some built-in editing features that let you do simple things like remove red eye, crop and play with the colors a bit. Picasa is useful with Windows machine, but it will be nice to start playing with it in the Linux version. http://blogs.zdnet.com/Google/?p=205

Google and Dell have agreed to a first in a series of deals to preinstall Web and desktop search software on the PC maker's computers, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said Thursday.
Speaking at a Goldman Sachs conference in Las Vegas, Schmidt discussed details of a long-rumored deal between the No. 1 search engine and the No. 1 PC maker, which is a strike against Google rival Microsoft. Under the deal, millions of Dell PCs will be loaded with the Google toolbar for Web and PC search, along with a co-branded home page, before they're shipped to consumers.http://news.com.com/Dell+embraces+Google/2100-1032_3-6077051.html?tag=cd.lede

eBay approached Yahoo to discuss working together more closely on advertising, said Yahoo Chief Executive Terry Seme
As previously reported, under the deal with eBay, Yahoo will become the exclusive third-party provider of all graphical ads on eBay and will also provide new text ads on some search results pages. Yahoo search and site links will be integrated into a co-branded version of the eBay toolbar.
Meanwhile, eBay's PayPal service will be the online payment method used by Yahoo customers, merchants and publishers and will be integrated into product offerings. The two companies will also explore co-developing their respective voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services. That project will look at releasing "click-to-call" ad technologies on their Web sites, using both Yahoo Messenger with Voice and eBay's Skype service.
Both Yahoo and eBay have seen increasing competition in their core markets, most notably from big hitters Microsoft and Google.http://news.com.com/Yahoo-eBay+deal+a+Google+buster+-+page+2/2100-1032_3-6077085-2.html?tag=st.num

For those who may not know, Apple computers run a totally different operating system than a Microsoft Windows PC.
But since Apple announced it would switch from IBM processors to Intel, that means only one thing: the legendary reliable Apple Laptops are going to run Microsoft Windows operating system.
"Perhaps the biggest crossover story with the Intel-based Macs is the possibility that they could run both the Apple operating system (called Mac OS X) and Microsoft Windows. Up until this point in the history of technology, one machine running both operating systems was an impossibility for the average computer user. But now that Macs run on Intel chips, and Windows has always run on Intel chips, the future is obvious.
In fact, the future is already here in the form of the still Beta software from Apple called Boot Camp
. While I had the MacBook Pro, I had the opportunity to download, install and use Boot Camp, which allowed me to install a full Windows operating system on a partition of the hard drive."http://www.microsoft.com/mac/

Searching for pictures needn't take a thousand words. An experimental search engine helps you find images based on colors, textures or characteristics similar to a reference image.Tiltomo
is an experimental search engine allowing you to find similar images in two ways. You can search for images that have similar color and texture characteristics, or you can look for images with similar "themes," which adds an analysis of subject matter to the color/texture mix.http://www.tiltomo.com/http://searchenginewatch.com/searchday/article.php/3608126

Ronald A. Bergman, Ph.D., a retired professor of anatomy, provides an online library
of information about anatomy, which has been taken from various textbooks. While there is some commentary, most of the information consists of drawings or illustrations. The drawings come from texts that include an English-language translation of the 1841 atlas entitled "Handbuch der Anatomie des Menschen," "A Cross-Section Anatomy" (1911), Atlas of Microscopic Anatomy (1999), Anatomy of First Aid (2004), and others.

The latest component to the Amsterdam Public Libr
ary AquaBrowser implementation has officially gone live. 'Muziekweb' is now available to any Amsterdam Public Library member. With 300,000 CDs, over 300,000 LPs and more than 10,000 music-DVDs, 'Muziekweb' is the largest collection of music in Europe. This collection is belongs to the 'Centrale Discotheek Rotterdam' (CDR), physically located in the Rotterdam Public Library. The service is available to the entire public community; however, this is the first time that such a collection has ever been integrated right into a library catalog search through AquaBrowser Library. AquaBrowser Library allows the user to 'discover' new music using the associations, or 'refine' the results to get the exact item they are looking for. http://www.oba.nl/index.htmlhttp://www.librarytechnology.org/ltg-displayarticle.pl?RC=11998

The "Million Little Pieces" author now admits that his second supposed nonfiction volume, "My Friend Leonard", chronicling his friendship with a gangster during a prison stay, also isn't entirely true. In a note included in the forthcoming paperback edition, Frey says that "To call this book pure nonfiction would be inaccurate. It is a combination of fact and fiction, real and imagined events." The book's narrative follows a three-month stretch in jail, but Frey's new intro admits he "did not spend 90 days in jail," and that a character named Porterhouse, who assaults him in the book's opener, is complete fiction. "Many of the other characters' names and identifying characteristics have been altered or fictionalized, as have major events in their lives."
