Google Docs now allows uploading of all filetypes

Google Docs help - Uploading any file

Originally, only office-type documents could be saved in Google Doc (e.g. doc, xls, ppt, pdf). Some resorted to saving other files (e.g. jpg, gif, exe) in Gmail, or used other tools like Evernote (which had its own set of file restrictions).

Hopefully, the next step will be auto-sync. Files located in a designated folder on a computer will have copies of them synced online. This would enable the most updated version of a file to be easily available wherever there is internet access.

Browser Speed Tests: Firefox 3.6, Chrome 4, Opera 10.5

I have been impressed by Opera 10.50 pre-alpha, and it seems the perceived sense of speed is validated by some of the measurements done by Lifehacker. However, the lack of support for Google Toolbar is still the major issue stopping me from jumping from Firefox. I wonder how Firefox 3.7a1pre would fare...

55 minutes of jogging to expend 1 slice of Bak Kwa?

Health Promotion Board (HPB)

Quite shocking figures from a table in the above HPB article. I wonder if food intake can be directly compared to physical activity in this way...

Germany issues Internet Explorer (IE) warning


It looks like IE's slow speed may not be the only reason for switching to another browser...

Hands-on with Palm Pre Plus, Palm Pixi Plus

CES 2010 - CNET
Palm upgrades its 2 models; I almost bought a Treo Pro the last time I went handphone shopping, and the touchscreen + QWERTY format continues to appeal to me.
