The new report suggests that Google is apparently testing to bring in latest features for Gmail web interface featuring more of white spaces and the absence of the new tabs feature. The mails classification icons which are reflected as tabs and the menu at the left side are now hidden. Not just this, the forthcoming version of Gmail includes Hangouts chat menu placed at the top right with a drop down list of chat contact and a big Search box in the middle.

Scrolling down on the right hand side towards the bottom, there are email and reminder creation buttons that are round in shape and are created to enable users to store numerous unfinished messages or reminders.

Coming to the inbox, Gmail developers are also trying to develop a new feature called Pinned, which will allow users to keep important emails front and center at the top of their inbox. This feature includes an enclosure that will instantly shift emails back to their original place with a single tap—perfect for viewing incoming mails instantly.

However, nothing is confirmed from the Google side about the release of this leaked new interface.

Rubik’s Cube invention Google Doodle


Today 19th May 2014 Google is celebrating one of the greatest toy inventions ever. The  Rubik’s Cube invention was invented in 1974 by Erno Rubik. Erno Rubik was a Hungarian inventor, architect and professor of architecture.

unnamed 

Erno Rubik was best known for the invention of mechanical puzzles including the Rubik’s Cube Invention, the Rubik’s Magic 3-D combination puzzle, Rubik’s Magic: Master Edition and the Rubik’s Snake. However none of these became so popular as the ordinary Rubik’s cube invention that entertained and fascinated a whole generation.

Today’s Rubik’s Cube invention is a playable game on the Google homepage and is an exact replica of the Rubik’s Cube Invention except that you can play it virtually on your computer. In the past Google have been accused of creating some time wasters, like the Pac-Man game they had on the 21st of May 2010 some news sites reported that the game cost the world 4.82 million of productive economic hours which were wasted on people playing the game.

I think that if the Rubik’s Cube invention is going to be measured similarly the Rubik’s Cube Invention game is going to win hands down. The game is a bit tougher to play and you have to order all the same colors of blocks together which might take far longer to do than to play the Pac-Man game, nonetheless I am thrilled that Google have once again upped the level of entertainment and insight their doodles bring!

If you remember the Rubik’s Cube Invention and if it’s from your era you will not be able to resist the Rubik’s Cube Invention and if you are like me you will not give up on playing the game until you have at least once completed the online version!

How to play the Rubik’s Cube Invention Google Doodle

The aim of the game for those who don’t know is to have all the blocks on the Rubik Cube have the same 9 colors on all the sides of the Rubik Cube, you do this by moving the colors one at a time either up or down, left or right until you have all the colors the same.

For more information about the Rubik’s Cube Invention we highly recommend that you visit the Wikipedia site for a complete overview of the Rubik’s Cube Invention.

India’s Great Online Shopping Festival Is Back! #GOSF


Google, yet again launches its most anticipated ‘India’s Great Online Shopping Festival’ (GOSF) commencing on the 11th to the 13th of December this year. GOSF is a festival for online shoppers in India stretching out for three days inspired by a similar online consumer activity which is promoted by retailers in the US by giving good discounts to customers called the ‘Cyber Monday’, reports watblog.

540f32dA
Last year, Google had conducted a similar activity which created a lot of buzz in the online shopping sector, bringing together almost all e-commerce companies together in India.  It has been continuously innovating in India to make internet accessible to all and to get all shoppers under one single roof. 
It is reported that, last year GOSF saw a massive user-engagement which had directly increased the sales and traffic of all major e-commerce portals which had associated with it. Contradicting to that, few users and certain publications have reported discrepancies such as discounts amounts not being significant, boring items and overcharging.
This year, Google announced that Intel, Airtel and PayTM will be its preferred partners and that it has lots of new e-commerce startups lined up with massive offers. Though Google is cutting the cheese in the internet sector with ideas like never before, it would only be admirable if it doesn’t repeat the performance it showcased like last year.
