The race for being first in giving to a service in agreement with the exigencies of the public and that, in addition, it is one hundred percent in the cloud, it will be a race of long breath. First, Google had removed the marvellous Google Docs that was praised by the experts and who after all have not finished convincing to many to leave of side the PC and to watch towards the cloud. An important subject is the rapidity, seems that still the cloud is very far from offering the rapidity that the PC. Also, now Microsoft announces that the next suite of Office will have as destiny the Web. A singular announcement has arrived like the news of last minute: Google lists to the purchase of Docver by reasonable sum of 25 million dollars. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Ben Horowitz. It must be reasonable for a company that some years ago acquired Youtube in almost 1 650 million dollars to only improve its service of video. The peculiar thing of this purchase is that Docver it is the company whose service allows that several users publish to the same time a same document of Microsoft Office. Thus it is, Google is on the verge of buying a company whose services sold to Microsoft.

Definitively the news has not left of surprises many, critics and lovers of Google. For some the obvious question is because to acquire something that can be programmed. Nevertheless, sometimes the companies buy other companies to acquire technology and to avoid that the competition acquires this technology. After all it is a chess game. This time Google has taken a step to put itself expensive to face in front of Microsoft. Most interesting of everything it is that soon we will see the consequences of this acquisition in Google Docs, as well as in Microsoft Office. This purchase will affect both services and we will see if for Google this really means an improvement. Original author and source of the article

Energy Electric

The history of electricity refers to the study and use of electricity, the discovery of their own laws as a physical phenomenon and the invention of devices for their use. The phenomenon, outside of his relationship with the human observer, has no history; and if it is considered as part of the natural history, it would be the same as time, space, matter and energy. As it is also called electricity to the scientific branch that studies the phenomenon and the branch of technology that is responsible for implementing it, the history of electricity is the branch of the history of science and of the history of technology which deals with its emergence, development and evolution. One of its initial milestones may be around 600 BC, when Thales noted that rubbing a rod of amber with a skin or wool, obtained small loads (triboelectric effect) which attracted to small objects, and that long time rubbing could cause the appearance of a small spark. Near the Greek city of Magnesia is they were called stones from Magnesia, which possessed magnetite. The ancient Greeks noted that the pieces of this material attracted between them, and also to small iron objects. Electricity has evolved since the perception of the phenomenon to its scientific treatment, which would not be systematic but until the 18th century. Were recorded along the ancient age and average other (rather isolated) observations as well as medical intuition (use of electric fish in diseases such as gout and headaches) referred to by authors like Plinio the elder and Scribonius long, or archaeological objects as diverse as questionable interpretation, at this point refer to the Baghdad batteryan object found in Iraq in 1938, dated in 250 BC, which resembles an electrochemical cell.
