Google’s Whirlwind Start To 2011 [Cross Post] Copied from my post on the uTest blog. Google’s off to a pretty intense start in 2011 – from a change in CEO to launching new products that compete directly with some of the biggest tech companies including Microsoft, Amazon and of course, Apple.

Catching Up & November Summary As much as I enjoy it I’ve been horrible about posting to my blog lately, and I’m blaming Twitter.
