Cheers, Gears

Google Gears

Following up on previous posts about Google Gears, the web service that lets you bring your online world offline, I thought I ought to post about a couple more examples of it being used. Both have popped up on the Wikipedia entry for Gears, which is worth keeping an eye on for new developments.

The first one is SQLAdmin for Gears, which I cannot pretend to understand, though there is some explaination here.

Second is the far more straightforward Gearpad, which explains itself succinctly:

Gearpad is a simple notepad you can access from anywhere, even offline.

When you return to the network, your notes will be synchronized with the server automatically. Hooray!

Hooray indeed.
