This blog is hosted by Blogger, which is owned by Google. When I login to my Gmail (Google email) account, I am automatically logged into this blog as well as Picasaweb, which hosts the pix online and is also owned by Google. This makes it easy to share and synch photos between PC, blog, and gallery. The Picasa desktop application allows seamless photo editing and organization that suits all my needs. I do not have Photoshop and didn't bother loading the Canon software that came with my camera. Picasa is all I need and I highly recommend it.
Anyway, my point is: Google has the best stuff. There is really no need for any Microsoft or Yahoo! or even Apple on the internet. All Google products are pretty much guaranteed to be better than anything comparable, because Google has the smartest people. And nearly all Google products are free since they have money coming out of their Googlears. So the Windows/Mac war is moot: Google owns the web. Resistance is futile!
