[Micronet] Google Keep

John McChesney-Young
Last weekend there were reports of a new Google service called Keep,
and it's now gone live and (unlike Google+) works in bConnected. It's
under the aegis of Drive, although there's not yet a button to get
there from your Drive window and you have to use:

http://drive.google.com/keep

It's very simple and low on features and comparisons to sticky notes
are apt, but if you're looking for something of that sort, check it
out.

On my XP machine it works fine in IE 8 and current versions of Firefox
and Chrome. FF 3.x doesn't display view mode buttons (list vs. array)
but otherwise it works. On my Linux machine it works fine in current
FF, Chrome, and Opera - although I got error messages at first in
Opera and FF, a second attempt worked fine and it could have been
server-related given the traffic the curiosity has generated.

See e.g.:

Re: [Micronet] Google Keep

That's the error I got the first time I tried it with Firefox and
Opera in Linux, but when I closed the tabs and started afresh a few
minutes later (after checking a few browsers on my XP machine) it
worked. I suggest you try again later, or try a different browser.
It's also possible it's being rolled out gradually, although (for what
little my opinion is worth) I wouldn't have expected you to have
gotten even that far.

Re: [Micronet] Google Keep

Michael Sinatra-3
The geek blogosphere is all abuzz about Google Keep, and not necessarily
in a good way.  Coming as it has, on the heels of the Reader
cancellation, people are becoming wary of "cool new services" from
Google.  See:

http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2013/03/a-problem-google-has-created-for-itself/274232/

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/03/21/googles-trust-problem/

http://gigaom.com/2013/03/20/sorry-google-you-can-keep-it-to-yourself/

Google Keep may be great, but Google's timing isn't terrific.

Also check out the Google Graveyard:

http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/map_of_the_week/2013/03/google_reader_joins_graveyard_of_dead_google_products.html

Recently a friend asked me a chilling question: What happens when
adwords no longer is enough of a cash cow to justify the effort and
expenditure of maintaining gmail and Drive as free services?  (Or
if/when gmail and Drive are no longer seen as useful data feeds for the
advertising business?)  Will all users have to start paying real money
for these services or will they be whittled down?  Fallows's rationale
in The Atlantic piece ("they keep you in the Google ecosystem") isn't
convincing.
