DESCRIPTION   Google  Chrome  OS  is  an  open  source  operating  system,  based  in   Linux,  designed  by  Google  to  work  exclusively  with  web  applications.   The  user  interface  resembles  that  of  the  Chrome  web  browser.   Google  Chrome  OS  is  aimed  at  users  who  spend  most  of  their   computer  time  on  the  Internet.  (www.wikipedia.com)   Prezi  is  a  Flash-­‐based  visualization,  storytelling,  and  presentation   tool  that  allows  you  to  create  nonlinear  presentations.  Using  the   simple  editor,  you  can  place  text,  images,  video,  Flash  files,  and  draw   lines  to  show  relationships  between  each  item.  The  final  result  is  a   visual  map  that  lets  users  zoom  in  and  out  and  navigate  to  content  in   a  clickable  environment.   http://www.layersmagazine.com/prezi.html   Google  Docs  is  Google's  "software  as  a  service"  version  of  an  office   suite.  Documents,  spreadsheets,  forms  and  presentations  can  be   created  within  the  application  itself,  imported  through  the  web   interface,  or  sent  via  email.  They  can  also  be  saved  to  the  user's   computer  in  a  variety  of  formats.  Documents  can  be  shared,  opened,   and  edited  by  multiple  users  at  the  same  time.   There  is  a  limit  on  how  much  a  user  can  store  on  their  account.   Individual  documents  may  not  exceed  250  MB  as  of  Jan.  13  2010,   embedded  images   must  not  exceed  2MB  each,  and  spreadsheets  are  limited  to  256   columns,200,000  cells,  and  99  sheets.  (www.wikipedia.com)   A  Social  Network  Service  focuses  on  building  and  reflecting  of  social   networks  or  social  relations  among  people,  e.g.,  who  share  interests   and/or  activities.  A  social  network  service  essentially  consists  of  a   representation  of  each  user  (often  a  profile),  his/her  social  links,  and   a  variety  of  additional  services.  Most  social  network  services  are  web   based  and  provides  means  for  users  to  interact  over  the  internet,   such  as  e-­‐mail  and  instant  messaging.   Aside  from  meeting  a  lost  classmate  or  linking  up  with  new  friends,   another  “popular  use  for  this  new  technology  is  social  networking   between  businesses.  Companies  have  found  that  social  networking   sites  such  as  Facebook  and  Twitter  are  great  ways  to  build  their   brand  image.”                                                                                                        Source  :    http://www.wikipedia.com
