In no particular order…

“Here’s a nice surprise from Google’s Maps team: just like Gmail, Google Maps now also have the Labs feature (it’s the little green vial in the top right menu), which brings experimental new features for you to try out.” Source: Google Maps Get Labs With Nine Cool New Features

Chrome has some love for the Mac fanbois…

“Mac OS X only: Chrome for Mac Beta just updated with support for Chrome extensions. Windows and Linux users have been enjoying support for Chrome extensions for a while, and while Mac users who’re subscribed to the dev channel of Chrome have had extension support since January, this is good news for Mac users who prefer the relative stability of the beta release. Ready to get started installing some saucy Chrome extensions but not sure where to start? Check out these 13 excellent extensions, or just head to our Chrome extensions page to browse other extensions we’ve covered. ” Source: Chrome for Mac Beta Updates with Extension Support – Google Chrome – Lifehacker

Gizmodo has an analysis of where Microsoft’s money comes from…

“It’s no shock to see that with unglamorous but vital products like Windows and Office, Microsoft is basically printing money. But where’s the Xbox? The Zune? Windows Mobile? Bing? Oh, they’re there. You just have to look a little closer.” Source: Where Microsoft’s Money Really Comes From – Microsoft profit – Gizmodo

Elsewhere, Google has acquired Aardvark…

“Aardvark is easy: just send Aardvark a question in plain English, like you do when talking to a friend. Aardvark figures out who might be able to answer, and asks on your behalf — Aardvark is the hub.” Source: Aardvark

In the meantime, if you want a few laughs, search the internet for [Bad Valentine]. Have a great weekend…
