The Amazon Kindle Fire was announced and is running on top of Android. Google opens up “The Chrome Zone” which is their version of the Apple Store. Samsung teases the Nexus Prime for Verizon.

1. Kindle Fire
The Kindle Fire is based on Android but you’ll have a hard time spotting anything that resembles Android. Amazon will have it preloaded with the Amazon app store opposed to the normal Android app store.
2. Chrome Zone
Google is trying their hand at brick and mortar stores. The Chrome Zones are primarily to promote Google’s Chrome OS.
4. Google Execs Not Using Google+?
Why would Google executives like Eric Schmidt not be using Google+? Many have no account or have posted very few times.
5. Google Earth Downloaded One Billion Times
Do you use Google Earth? It has now been downloaded one billion times.
