OnLive, the company that has already revolutionized gaming is now gunning for making the same kind of splash in OS virtualization. And not just any OS virtualization, but Windows 7 in the cloud, for free - a set of words I never thought I'd write in the same sentence.

If you've ever needed to create a PDF on the go, then you know that there really haven't been many options for doing so in the past, but that all changes today - Adobe just released CreatePDF for Android.
Using the same PDF creation as Adobe Acrobat, this app allows you to create a PDF on any Android 2.1+ device, including Honeycomb. It uses Adobe's online service for file creation, so the process doesn't actually occur on your device - but don't worry, Adobe says that the service does not keep a copy of the original file or the PDF.
