Google Docs getting offline access | Webware : Cool Web apps for everyone
Rafe reports: “Using the free Google Gears extension, users will soon be able to read and edit their files even when they have no internet connection.”

This is good. I hope it comes to Google Notebook soon as I am very very addicted to that little app like no other, in fact it has displaced OneNote as my adhoc note pad.

Newspaper revenues take biggest plunge on record

Ouch! Newspaper revenues take biggest plunge on record | Tech news blog – CNET News.com

Uncle Fester points us at this grim news:

“Total print advertising revenue last year dropped 9.4 percent to $42 billion from the year before, according to the Newspaper Association of America. That’s the biggest decrease since the NAA began measuring ad expenditures in 1950.

“Total advertising revenue, including online revenue, decreased 7.9 percent in 2007 from the year before.”

I want to see the percentage state of online revenue in the newspaper industry — that last paragraph infers a decline in online revenue for newspapers, which I know is not the case in the UK at least.
