Google buying Facebook ads to plug touchscreen ebook

In the fast paced digital world the news that Google's produced an HTML5 ebook called 20 Things I Learned About Browsers & Web is old news. I just hadn't gotten around to checking it out yet.

To be honest, maybe I would never had found the time. I'm busy. I don't need browser education from Google's Chrome team. I'm using Chrome right now.

But then I saw an ad from Google on Facebook. That caught my attention.



It's a nice looking ad and it worked on me. I clicked.

Rather nicely, I also discovered that the ebook works wonderfully on my touchscreen Acer Aspire. In fact, it's a great example of the sort of "2011 way to interact with the web" that designers around the world should be paying attention too.
