This is an early warning for our friends who will be attending CeBIT in Hannover, Germany. It's taking place March 4-9 and we're going to be there showing off our latest Splashtop wares at the Asus Booth. I guess CeBIT is even larger than CES because according to the website it's "the world's largest trade fair showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions for home and work environments." We're all about hanging out with the international geek crowd.

There are certain days where I think that I must have one of the best jobs. When I started blogging for Splashtop I was highly encouraged to try out new, cool services that would test out Splashtop in order to find things that would appeal to our loyal community of users. I don't know why it took me so long to figure out that games fit into this task perfectly. This post will be short because I have to get back to my heavy research on this subject. But, I found a game that I wanted to share with you immediately so that you, too, can heavily research this subject.

Just a quick reminder that Splashtop is going to be in Las Vegas at CES. We're sharing space with our friends at Asus. So, in addition to seeing all of the cool things we have to announce this year, you can check out some of the wares that Asus is showing off. In fact, I'm blogging right now from my Asus Eee PC and loving it.

Our friends at Asus decided that Splashtop (under the Express Gate brand on Asus products) should be featured at IT Month, which is a cool event that happens in Taipei in December of every year. The idea behind this event is that computer and electronics manufacturers can sell their items at a reduced cost directly to the consumer. Given the opportunity to talk directly with consumers, Asus took some time to show off Splashtop to potential laptop purchasers. Apparently, our beloved Splashtop has been very popular and is getting a lot of attention.

A while back I wrote a bit about and their awesome platform for storing files online. Splashtop doesn't currently allow access to your local files (those on your hard drive) so having online options are really important. Up until recent history, online storage was a pretty linear process - uploading and downloading was the most major feature. The ability to have "access from anywhere" was the value proposition.

I have a great job. I get to play with the best web applications and then tell you all about them. Why? Because Splashtop loves web apps. They're like chocolate and peanut butter or the Oreo crackers and the cream filling. I must be hungry. Anyway, today I wanted to tell you about, an online storage service that does some pretty incredible things.

Another great example of the way that Web 2.0 has advanced our browser-based experience can be seen in the realm of chat. Meebo is a great example of a company that has taken web-based chat to new levels. We thought it would be so useful that we put it as a default bookmark in the Splashtop browser. Meebo allows you to do many of the same things that your standard application-based IM client does through the web browser. It can work like a single IM client for AIM, Gtalk, Yahoo!

A couple days ago I wrote a post about Zoho, which is an excellent productivity tool. While using Splashtop yesterday, I spent some time creating an office document in Google Docs, Zoho's formidable competitor in the online productivity space. Google's ability to create an amazing web product is, of course, legendary. Let's explore Google Docs...
