Excerpt from the article by The Next Web: "Google is testing a new favoriting service for its Chrome browser. Called Google Stars, the new option appears to still in very early testing. The new addition was first discovered by Google+ user Florian Kiersch. He found the following strings in “the source code of the Google Collections modules in web search”.
Here are some of the strings that reveal a bit about the feature: - Use the star in the address bar to save anything across the web. - Search the entire page content with suggestions and auto complete. - Discover new dimensions in your content through the automatically created filters. - Browse and find your stars in a beautiful image rich grid. Add notes and make it yours. - Select, and edit items to organize your starred content by clicking on them or dragging and dropping. - Organize your starred items into groups, by typing a name for a new group here.
It does tell us this is a Chrome-specific feature. In short, Google Stars supports favoriting (called starring) URLs, lets you add a title and a note, includes folders, and sharing functionality (both public and private). How much of all this will remain in the final release, is not clear. The real interesting aspect here is that Stars appears to be a cloud service that allows for sharing..."

Management means lots of things... So the first question that comes to my mind is, “What can be managed?” The simple answer is anything! When I Googled that question, there were 72,800,000 results including broad categories like business, knowledge, processes, projects, stress, anger, aging, conflict, time, suppliers, weight, diabetes, data, systems and diversity … and, trust me, the list of subjects went on and on. What I also noticed from the near 73 million hits is that the most popular search for things to manage is people. That’s not a big surprise. Fundamentally people are at the heart of our business and therefore people can —and must — be managed. However, in order to manage a winning team, there are several steps involved that can be categorized as both management and leadership. I love how Stephen Covey defines the roles of leadership and management. “Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the r
