I read with interest that Google has come up with yet another incredibly clever invention.
It’s an email client application. You’re with me so far, right? Using this application you can access mail stored on a mail server, and send emails to other people. Now that’s already pretty damn nifty in my book! Jeez, what will they come up with next, etc, etc. But that’s not the best part. The incredible bit happens now. Oh yeah. This new email client application can actually store the contents of some of the emails in what’s called a “memory chip” on your device – stop me if I’m going too fast – so you can read them even if you don’t have an Internet connection! Now, how cool is that? But wait, there’s even more. You can write an email and then click the Send button. If you don’t have an internet connection, instead of showing you an error message, the application will store your email on the “memory chip”, and then send it out when you get online.
Wow, those crazy cats. I never would have thought such insane black magic would be possible. I know! Let’s call it the ‘Local Cloud!’
Unsurprisingly, Engadget is really impressed.
