Google is preparing a service that would let users store on its computers essentially all of the files they might keep on their personal-computer hard drives -- such as word-processing documents, digital music, video clips and images, say people familiar with the matter.

It could be released as early as a few months from now, one of the people said.

The company helps retailers like Home Depot, Best Buy and Target bring their advertising catalogs and circulars to their Web sites.

The Compare People application on Facebook sends user profile information, such as age, gender, city, ZIP code, favorite music, favorite movies, favorite TV shows, favorite books, “about me,” activities, interests, and political view to Google AdSense when displaying advertisements within the application.
“We recently allowed some application partners to send us additional keywords to improve ad performance. A limited number of the keywords sent to Google did not comply with the developer’s agreement with Facebook. When we realized this conflict, we asked the partners to discontinue sending those keywords. We are no longer using those keywords. No personally identifiable information was exchanged between Google and the application developers.”
The PC is loaded with links to Web 2.0 applications that run in a browser. A GUI desktop showcases icons to these Web apps on the bottom of the screen. The icons link to Google Docs, Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, Meebo, Facebok, Wekipedia, among others. Skype and Gimp are also in there. OpenOffice is said to be installed, too, but not represented on the desktop at startup.
