Rather than just announce some partnerships, or even parade a few unfinished prototypes across a stage, Google may share some rather important information regarding its TV software with developers at Google I/O. Enough info for developers to start making apps, perhaps.

Google has launched the Google Apps Script in Google Apps Standard Edition, meaning that it is much more broadly available now. Previously, it was only available in Google Apps Premier and Education editions. It was released back in the summer.
Google Apps Script starts in the spreadsheets of Google Docs. It lets you create sheets to read and change formulas, formats and cell contents, and lets you create custom functions so you can automate repetitive tasks.
Game developers – or at least the game developers who attend the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco – are likely to hold Google and Android in much higher regard after March 9th and 10th. Google’s announced that it will give away quite a lot of Android devices on those dates.
Starting in mid-March, Yahoo Shopping will no longer be a solo act. Yahoo announced today that it’s arranged to have PriceGrabber take care of some of the technical details, and it’ll be able to make one more cutback thanks to the adjustment.
