A few years ago Google was working on a fiber optics cable project that would allow you to get up to 1GB/s of internet speeds. That is 100 times faster than any average American has ever seen. Well, up until last Wednesday that did not seem to be a possibility. On February 10th, Google announced that they are planning on launching high speed fiber optic internet connections

60,000 apps now available for several Sprint phones. Sprint has a new partnership with GetJar, the world’s second largest app store.
I think Len Barlik of Sprint said it best.
“We are opening up the world of apps to customers who may not have a smartphone. Our partnership with GetJar means that all Sprint customers will now have access to thousands of applications ranging from popular apps such as YouTube and Google Maps to more niche applications that address their business needs.”
For more info visit Sprint , and enjoy all those apps, games and more.

Google has started a new social hub in its e-mail service today, leaving no doubt that the internet search giant is aching for a face-off with Facebook.
The new GMail channel, called Google Buzz, includes many of the features that have turned Facebook into the Web’s top spot for fraternizing with friends and family. It is being rolled out to GMail users over the coming days and weeks. You will see a “Buzz” notice/icon near your GMail inbox on the left hand side.
It comes less than a week after Facebook made changes of its own. Among other things, Facebook now shows a list of friends available for chatting on the left side of the page, similar to where GMail displays its chat feature.
Like Facebook, Google Buzz will let GMail users post updates about what they are doing or thinking and share those with the rest of the world or with only a select group of people. GMail users also will be able to track other people’s updates and instantly comment on them for everyone else in the social circle to see.
Like Facebook, Google Buzz can serve as a showcase for video, photos and web links to interesting stories.
There are even apps for Android (2.0+) phones and the iPhone with other mobile OS’s reported as “coming soon”.
There is a new Google Maps 4.0 that adds a Buzz Layer option. Sorry BlackBerry users, not for you yet.
More at Google
Update: It seems you need at least Android 1.6 to update to Google Maps 4.0. Hopefully Sprint will update the Hero and the Moment soon.
