Utility Computing On Its Way?

There is an interesting article posted by C|Net called Goodbye Computer, Hello World! that reports on Google as a possible challenge to Microsoft in the near future. Google now offers services such as GMail, Google Maps, and soon their new calendaring software that possibly portend the era of what has been called "utility computing."

Cool Simple Software

I received an e-mail today from a company that makes a little piece of utility software called Snapture that looked really useful. Snapture runs on your PC or Laptop. With a push of a button the software captures what you have highlighted and automatically sends it into your Palm or Pocket PC (of course, one must have their Palm or Pocket PC plugged into it's cradle). This would be great for capturing driving directions, notes, or things to read later.
