I've written about TouchDown for Google Android in the past and it is one of the best priced apps I have purchased for my T-Mobile G1. I actually popped my SIM card in my G1 yesterday morning and discovered there was an upgrade to TouchDown that brought it up to version 3.x. I then received an email from the company with all the details surrounding this latest upgrade. As I mentioned before in my TouchDown articles, the NitroDesk Inc. people have been regularly updating the application to make the Exchange experience better and better for Google Android devices.
I've written about TouchDown for the Google Android a couple of times (here and here) and as I have said in those posts it gets better and better on a regular basis. I have been using beta versions and the latest available beta supports PUSH email, ability to send attachments, device-local drafts, and more. The folks at NitroDesk, Inc. were able to sign a licensing agreement with Microsoft to support direct push capability through Exchange ActiveSync. I think this is one of the first products for the G1 that provides this functionality, even though a couple others are working on it as well.

Corporates and consumers share similar social networking goals, says market player, where Google OpenSocial can address business concerns about networking sites.
[The opinions expressed here are mine alone, and not those of Google, Inc. my current employer.
A few days ago, Google launched a new service called Friend Connect to help website owners make their stuff social without needing to do much work. This basically involves being able to host certain gadgets that use OpenSocial on a webpage by simply copy and pasting some code from Google.
Google provides funding to universities and researchers around the world who scan and digitize books for them. Many of these books have considerable historical significance, although Google's real goal, according to a CNN piece on the effort, is to createGoogle Inc.
OpenSocial is no longer just a Google standard. Microsoft catches social networking religion.
Yahoo today announced their support for OpenSocial, the Google-led standard for developing applications that work across supporting social networks. Except, technically at least, OpenSocial isn't the sole property of Google anymore, following the formation of the non-profit OpenSocial Foundation.
On the same day Microsoft announced new interoperability deals with five social-networking sites, Yahoo announced it has joined the Google-backed OpenSocial social-networking intiative.

Google is releasing applications built on the Open Social API running on Orkut at the end of this month, and is holding "hackathons" February 7-8 and February 14-15 at Google's Mountain View, CA headquarters for OpenSocial developers.In addition, MySpace unveiled its Developer Platform today, which uses the OpenSocial APIs to give developers the capability to run their applications on MySpace or any other "container" that supports OpenSocial.
Following on its OpenSocial APIs for building cross-social network applications, Google has created a Social Graph API that searches the Web for explicit public statements of connections between people. The Web crawler looks for XFN (XHTML Friends Network) and FOAF (Friend of a Friend), which are standard formats used to indicate people connections.
As it stands, the Google-led OpenSocial has very little, if anything, to do with data portability. That's the view of Marc Canter, a long time advocate of open standards and data portability, and one in which I'm inclined to agree.
It isn't a surprise that Google bid on spectrum in the FCC auction for the 700mhz spectrum, however I found the name it filed under interesting -- Google Airwaves Inc. There has been speculation that Google and Apple entered the auction together, and maybe this is the reason for incorporating a separate company on November 26th.
