New Ways to Use Computers with Chrome OS

In time soon, Google will introduce Chrome the OS as a new way of using a computer. According to the software giant, the user is not the time anymore to use computers the way older versions. According to Sundar Pichai, Vice President of Google, Chrome OS is a platform for the service. That's because all Chrome users can open OS such as documents, photos, emails, and online anywhere called cloud computing.

In Google's vision of a world in which all computers that run on OS Chrome, people can walk into any computer with Internet connection and get access to all their information. Google says Chrome the OS will become clearer by the end of the year, when the company will introduce a netbook computer that runs on Chrome the OS later this year. Although Google refused to give details of the device. It is expected that the OS will be produced by other companies and branded by Google, similar to how Google released a phone Nexus, which runs on Android.

Google has high hopes for Chrome, and as too many companies that rely on search advertising as a revenue, Pichai have described Chrome as one of Google's new business with huge potential. With Chrome OS, Google is once again stepping into the territory of rivals such as Microsoft and Apple, which both make operating systems and widely used desktop software like Microsoft Office, Apple's iPhoto and iTunes. The software will not work on Chrome computer. Conversely, users of Google Chrome will use Web-based products, such as Docs, Gmail and Picasa for word processing, email and photos.

Mobile Applications for Skin Cancer

Australia has the highest ranked skin cancer in the world, more than 1,850 people who died of it, more than the number of people killed in an accident on the street. Two out of three Australians diagnosed with skin cancer at the age of 70 years. "We found that many people are using the temperature and weather to predict when they need sun protection, but actually the problem exactly is ultraviolet (UV) itself," said Sue Heward manager at the Cancer Council's SunSmart Manager.

To counter this, the Cancer Council's developed a free application that provides daily weather forecasts, including predictions maximum level of UV light. The application has a warning function and using the global positioning systems (GPS) to automatically adjust the location of the user, it can indicate the time when sun protection is required as automatic warning UV and other features. SunSmart application is now available to be downloaded before gratis.Cancer Council has also given widget UV Alert to organizations such as sports clubs.

Saturn's Atmosphere has a Lot of Oxygen

Moon Rhea
A recent study found that Saturn's atmosphere turned out to contain oxygen and carbon dioxide that a lot. The aircraft from NASA's Cassini has detected the atmosphere when it flew toward the moon Rhea in March last. This discovery also marks the first for an atmosphere rich in oxygen content on the Saturn satellite.

Atmosphere containing oxygen are known to exist in the natural satellites in our solar system. For example, Europa and Ganymede, two of Jupiter's moon, is also rich in oxygen content in the atmosphere. "We have seen this before in the planet Jupiter, and we have confirmed that there is oxygen in the atmosphere of Saturn's satellite," said study leader Ben Teolis of the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has detected oxygen levels in the atmosphere on the moon Europa and Ganymede in the 90's. In both satellites of Jupiter, the oxygen out of the water ice surface, which is divided into hydrogen and oxygen under the original particles from Jupiter.
