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.

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.

Track your Facebook ‘Friends’ precise location


The feature will be soon rolled out into iOS and Android app

Call it yet another attempt at intruding your privacy or a great way to advance social meet ups. Facebook has rolled out a new feature where your friends are notified when you are nearby or vice versa – enabling friends to catch up for a coffee or even watch a movie together.

Thankfully, the feature enables you to choose which one of your friends will get to know when you are nearby and how long they will remain notified, thereby enabling you to avoid those who you really want to.

The feature will be soon rolled out into iOS and Android app first in the United States. Facebook announced that the feature will only work if both – you and your friend – are on each other’s white list. “Sharing your location with Nearby Friends goes two ways — you and your friends both have to turn on ‘Nearby Friends’ and choose to share with each other to see when you are nearby. Your friends will only be able to see that you are nearby if you share this info with them and vice versa.”

You can even turn on precise location which could come out really handy to trace a friend or a dear one in a really crowded market.

The travel-sharing feature allows a friend to notify you when they are traveling. “You’ll be able to see the city or neighbourhood they are in, including on their profile. When you see a friend visiting a place you’ve been, it’s the perfect opportunity to send a recommendation for a great restaurant,”

The market is already flooded with apps that enable you to share your location with friends.

Apple has its own app called Find My Friends.

That enables you to locate friends and family using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The free app uses Apple ID to sign into the iCloud and you can send your location details ( can be a temporary share with time limits) to those in your contacts or even send an email. “When your friend accepts your invitation using the Find My Friends app on their device, you can start following their location. Your friends can request to follow your location the same way.”

Similarly,  SocialRadar currently works on your iPhone and could soon be available on Android and Google Glass.
