Wow, so many really great innovation products and services launched today. What a great time to be alive!

Forget the iPad, TechCrunch launches the CrunchPad. It requires a little work on your end, but it’s significantly cheaper and comes works with HTML5 and Flash. Eat your heart out iPad.

Google officially changes it’s name today. I never saw this coming and I think it might take some time to catch on, but I’ve got to give them credit for being out there like this!

In other Google news, YouTube has allowed you to stream videos in 360p and 480p, now you have the option to steam it in TEXTp. This new method of streaming not only promotes literacy, but it saves YouTube 1$ a second in bandwidth costs. Awesome, huh?

Lastly, Starbucks made a monumental move by offering two new drink sizes, the Plenta and Micra. This is a result of the company listening to what customers were asking. This is probably why Starbucks continues to be so wildly successful!
