Started to use Google apps

We've begun to use Google apps in my company since yesterday. It contains some web-based tools like Gmail, tasks etc. According to it, we can check e-mail, even in my house or outside our office.

Of course, it would accelerate our productivity, especially for employees who work outside the office, but it may restrain our works in near future...:(

At first, we have to be accustomed to using them soon. Although I usually use Google tools, our tools in my company are restricted. Actually, we cannot use Google calendar at present, because of the compatibility for our internal schedule system.


A tradition of "O-hanami"

Many Japanese people go to the park to see cherry blossom. Actually, I went to a park near my house with my wife, and took some pictures.

During walking through the park, my wife asked me why Japanese people held parties below the trees of cherry blossoms. I've never doubted such questions, and couldn't reply the answers. I'll look into this tradition tonight!

Anyway, there are some shops, which sell junky foods like Banana with chocolate or sweet apples. They are often appeared in festivals in Japan, and then O-hanami seems to be festival. 


Send to Kindle

Some days ago, I found an article about an application, with which we can push web-pages into our Kindle devices. It seems like a famous application called "Read it later." Actually, I tried to use it and the function is fine for me, because I usually read English or French books with Kindle paperwhite and I don't need to change device:)

According to the introductory page by Amazon, we may use some channels like web-browser, Google Chrome extension or others:


If you're a Kindle user, this function would be very helpful, I expect:)
