How did I seem to miss this news. There is a Salesforce app for Android now? It seems so. But of course, in typical Salesforce style, it is released with minimal features. It is read only with no edit/create capabilities, very similar to the iPhone Salesforce Viewer app. C’mon Salesforce! Try it out here.
In addition to that, Salesforce Chatter has been released for Android and looks pretty great on tablets if you happen to have one. Looks like Salesforce is finally giving Android a little love.

I did not know that Google did this until Today when I saw their blog post about free Google Checkout for Nonprofits.
It seems that Google will allow nonprofits to utilize their Google Checkout payment processing system for free. I use Google Checkout and I love it. The rates for payment processing are already competitive, but you can’t beat free! This system will allow you to accept online donations for your nonprofit very easily.
Also, Google Grants will allow nonprofits to advertise their organizations and service for free on Google AdWords if you qualify. That is great free advertising!
I know that this is not Salesforce related, but I deal with a lot of nonprofits and I feel that this is great!

Did you know that you can embed your shared Google Calendar directly on your Salesforce.com home page? Well, this can easily be done and it is a GREAT feature.
First, go to your Google Calendar page and click the “Settings” link on the left.
Next, select the Calendar you are interested in…in my case, Consulting.
Next, you will see a section where you can receive code to “embed” your calendar on a web page. Copy the code.
Now, go into Salesforce setup and go to the Home Page Component section.
Add another Home Page Component of type “HTML Area.” Hit the “View in HTML” checkbox and paste in the code. Save.
Now, add this home page component into a Salesforce.com Home Page Layout and take a look at your system wide shared Google Calendar!
