Gmail now with group chat and rich emoticons

A little more google love, now with gmail.

gmail love

I always loved gmail because of it being so simple, with all the great features filled in. I thought, those small : and :) made gmail look more cute. Now, when they bring emoticons on to gmail chat ?
My first thought was, well, is that going to affect the simplicity ? No way !! Its the google way of doing things ……….. what should I say, I just loved it… have you tried it yet ?

Group chat is going to take gmail a few miles ahead of yahoo. Right now, I depend on yahoo chat only when I need a group discussion. So, once we have group chat here on gmail and gtalk, oh yahoo, you are going to miss me a lot !! ( lol ) Continue reading

Orkut, keep your photos private

This is something I was waiting for ! You can have secrets now !

Have you ever wondered how much privacy you have on orkut, 0% privacy…. and thats too bad isn’t it ?. I used to advice ( I love it ) my friends not to put photos on orkut. Now, orkut has introduced something new, allowing you to control the privacy level of your album, videos, and testimonials. You can set it to either “everyone” or “friends” ,

Google adsense improved : Accidental clicks avoided

Google has announced a major change in the way the text ads appear on websites.

” Continuing these improvements, we’ve just changed our text ads slightly to help reduce accidental clicks. In the past, users could click on both the background and full text of an ad, but now they can click only on the title and URL of a text ad. By allowing users to click only on the ad title and URL, we aim to decrease accidental clicks, better aligning visitor behavior with their intent. Overall, the decrease in accidental clicks will keep users on your website, interacting your content, until they intend to click on an ad.” Continue reading

My Lord

This one was written one year back…….. going through it again.

My lord

You are my temple
The church with thousand windows
Bleeding altar
your heart is a flower with thousand wounds

Each word from you had thousand dreams
each time I saw you, I was crying
there was no tears or sounds
still I cried before you

You made me live like a candle
love like a wind
be loved like a child

I am searching for a word to thank you
since “thank you ” is not enough for say

In Love With Google !

I used to be a big fan of google ( not just search, there is a lot more ) and these days, I think, I have started loving them more !
I am reading something about google every day, ( I have decided to share more with you from now onwards )

I know that work at google, is really great and most advanced, the google way ! ( I would love to work with them, if I ever get a chance…. ) . Today, I noticed something on google’s blog, about the work culture, this is interesting and inspiring.

” In my first month at Google, I complained to a friend on the Gmail team about a couple of small things that I disliked about Gmail. I expected him to point me to the bug database. But he told me to fix it myself, pointing me to a document on how to bring up the Gmail development environment on my workstation. The next day my code was reviewed by Gmail engineers, and then I submitted it. A week later, my change was live. I was amazed by the freedom to work across teams, the ability to check in code to another project, the trust in engineers to work on the right thing, and the excitement and speed of getting things done for our users. Engineers across our offices (and across projects) have access to the same code; I didn’t have to ask for anyone’s permission to work on this.”
