Remember when you had to wait for a whole new window to load every time you needed to write an email? With the new compose, you’ll be shaving off seconds with every email you write. Simply click compose and voila! A new compose window opens just like a chat at the bottom of your Gmail. #GmailCompose

Priority Inbox is my favorite Gmail feature, and nobody I know uses it. Hopefully this will help.

If you’re looking for a way to control which values can be entered into a spreadsheet (for accurate and consistent collecting), look no further than our “data validation” feature. With today’s update to Google Sheets, we’ve made data validation even easier and more intuitive.

Say you need to track who brings what for a group trip. Just create a spreadsheet and use data validation to customize a drop-down list of what’s needed -- for the beach, for activities, for first aid. As you type into a cell, autocomplete will filter options to find what you’re looking for and keep data entries nice and neat. 

Give it a try (http://goo.gl/vKI9M) and let us know what you think in the comments!

Marketplace Apps  - 
 
+draw.io is a great tool for diagram creation. If you add this to your Google Apps account before 1st April 2013, it is completely free.
 
Install www.draw.io Google Apps or Confluence Plugins before 1st April 2013 to get them permanently free

Note : The online site, www,draw.io, remains completely free, even linked to Google Drive. This only applies to Google Apps for Business and Confluence installations.

Remember, if you install draw.io in your Google Apps for Business domain, https://www.google.com/enterprise/marketplace/viewListing?productListingId=18806+14512935155953175632, or diagramly in your Confluence, https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.mxgraph.confluence.plugins.diagramly, install before 1st April 2013, you'll get a permanently zero cost, unlimited user count license.

Don't worry if you have to reinstall after that date, it's possible to work out whether there's a previous installation on an Apps domain or Confluence license and re-apply the free license without you having to do anything.

The current planned pricing is $250 per floating user license per year. What that means is you license the maximum number of users using the application concurrently for your Apps or Confluence installation. But, obviously, that won't affect you, since you've read this and will install it before that date.

We may have to adjust the Apps pricing a little since when the realtime collaboration goes into the production version, the concurrent pricing will suddenly look more expensive.

Viewing shared folders in Google Drive just got a whole lot prettier. Over the next week, users who are invited to open a shared folder will notice a much improved visual layout of the folder’s contents. You can even click on an item to preview and flip between the content.

Want to keep the shared folder? Use the “Add to Drive” button on the top right to store it directly in your Drive for fast access across all devices.

Chrome Web Store Focuses on Web Apps That Really Work Everywhere

I probably should have done one of those butt-sucking "attaboy" posts that sometimes prevail when somebody influential gets a hot new job, but needless to say +François Beaufort certainly doesn't need my lips anywhere near that region to deserve the kudos that he's getting for his recent hiring by Google. He's a dedicated and talented programmer and one who has divined many insights into Google's product plans from delving into the program and header files of Chromium and Android source code. 

One of his most recent unveilings before headed towards corporate radio silence was revealing that the +Google Chrome Web Store is making lives much easier for developers who create apps for distribution via that portal. Instead of having to generate separate distributions specific to various PCs and mobile devices, developers can create one program image with all of the OS-specific resources included, leaving it to Chrome to retrieve the bits that it needs to run that program on the device where it finds itself operating.

That's a long way of saying that the Chrome Web Store is going to be much more than "just a collection of Web page bookmarks," as some have claimed. Increasingly the Chrome Web Store catalogs real, live Web-optimized apps that live and operate in a browser, and increasingly the browser that they're optimized for is Chrome. In other words, we've been promised for decades now that the Web can deliver platform-independent coding of software via browsers, but the tools to do so have been not so independent. This is a step towards platform rationalization in Web computing that will enable developers to do so much more easily.

We'll see what the results are soon enough, but hopefully this means that the difference between, say, Chrome for Android, Chrome for PCs and even, perhaps, Android for Chrome someday, will become increasingly small or nonexistent. Yes, neither Android nor Chrome is going away, but in the long run Web apps will win more market share over device-specific apps, thanks to the Chrome Web Store and other efforts to accelerate the power of Web computing.

Had a great Sunday lunch. The staff are warm and friendly. The flatbread pizzas with British inspired toppings come highly recommended.

My wife and I had a great Saturday evening here. The place was packed and the atmosphere was great. The food was really nice. I wholeheartedly recommend the spicy octopus. Oh, and the sake complimented our food very well.

I definitely recommend this restaurant. It is worth visiting just for the train inspired decor. The food was excellent and you receive a substantial portion. The service was fast and friendly.
