Submission + - Is Dropbox the next Google? (latimes.com) 1

ColdWetDog writes: "The Dropbox file storage and synchronization service has managed to attract 50 million users and $250 million in venture capital. The founder of Dropbox, Drew Houston, says he is determined to build the next Google or Apple, not to sell out to them. Even for or a guy whose paper valuation is around $600 million, seems like the best he could hope for is another Facebook level company — file storage isn't that sexy. I wish him luck in his bid to remain independent. I'd rather see Dropbox remain fairly agnostic with regard to other Internet services."

Submission + - Browsing the Body (googlelabs.com)

ColdWetDog writes: Google labs has an interesting new line of business — human anatomy. The Google Body Browser is a 3D representation of the major pieces parts of the human body. Based on the well known and very expensive Zygote 3D artwork, you can zoom in, rotate, view the various organ systems (bone, internal organs, nerves) in various states of transparency. Very much like Google Earth in both execution and concept.

Written with HTML5, it requires WebGL to work. Firefox 4 beta seems to work fine. Google, of course, recommends Chrome.

Neat.
