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.

Google honours ‘Human Computer’ Shakuntala Devi with calculator-styled doodle on her 84th birth anniversary


On Monday, Google paid tribute through its doodle to Shakuntala Devi on her  84th birth anniversary with a calculator font and her picture.

1913524

Popularly known as the Human Computer for her awesome ability to mentally solve complex mathematical problems, Shakuntala Devi was included in The Guinness Book of World Records in 1982.

Without any formal education as a child, Shakuntala Devi had the ability to memorise and calculate numbers mentally an ability her circus artist father discovered when she was just three.

A prolific author as well, she wrote books like Fun with Numbers, Astrology for You, Puzzles to Puzzle You, and Mathablit.

In 1977 in USA, Shakuntala Devi competed with a computer to see who gives the cube root of 188132517 faster, she won.

On June 18, 1980, the Human computer, Shakuntala Devi demonstrated the multiplication of two 13-digit numbers 7,686,369,774,870 × 2,465,099,745,779 picked at random by the Computer Department of Imperial College, London. She answered 18,947,668,177,995,426,462,773,730 in 28 seconds which is correct. This event is mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records.

With the ability to calculate the cube root of 61,629,875, and the seventh root of 170,859,375 without writing it down or using a calculator, Shakuntala Devi’s abilities were studied by Arthur Jensen, a professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley in 1988.

Jensen wrote in his report that the calculation was done and answers given even before he wrote the answer in his notebook. The findings were published in the academic journal Intelligence in 1990.

In April 2013, Shakuntala Devi passed away in a hospital in Bangalore from complications of the heart and kidneys at the age of 83.

10 Ways Android Beats iOS 7


When new, colorful, vibrant OSs, like Android and Windows Phone, were making their head ways in to consumer‘s psyche, iOS remained nearly still since its debut. iOS 7 is the first attempt by Apple at change. It turned out to be complete aesthetic overhaul of the interface. From the moment you turn on an iPhone running iOS 7, it’s different—every option, every app. The OS also sports amazing features like the Control Center, Lock Screen, Gestures Contorls, Slide to Unlock, Touch ID. All said and done, Android can still beat iOS in 10 ways, read on to know them as compiled by Business Insider.

#10 Endless Sharing Options

ZgTl9V14
The new iOS helps the user to share the content of the handset through only a few choices like Message, Mail, Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. But Android opens up the endless options for the sharing task. It can list out all the apps that are capable of sharing the content, be it Mail, Whats App or WeChat . The capability also gives the consumers to try out many sharing apps that are flooding the Google Play Store.

#9 Third-party Software Keyboards

iJ4KD5TN
There not many complaints about the typing experience on iOS 7, but Android still offers more options. The Jelly Bean models already come with the easy-to-use and fairly self-explanatory Swype, the users can dive in to Play Store for third party alternatives.

#8 More Customization

39zRpyOM
Android offers you much option to customize the handset to suite your taste. If you don’t like your home screen try Nova Launcher or a fake Windows Phone 8. With Jelly Bean 4.3 you can get to make different accounts, each one having only selected apps. This especially useful when kids gets hands on your phone. So the iOS 7 offers no such liberty to the users.

#7 Visible File System

8J3VfxI6
When you connect your Android phone to your PC, you can see the content of your phone displayed on the monitor as if you just connoted a pen drive. It makes it as easy as to transfer files between two folders of the computer. With Apple, there is a tedious process of converting files to the compatible form before they could be transferred on to iOS devices.

#6 Better Notifications Bar

K39zW0DU
Notification Center gets a huge overhaul and things are pretty different in iOS 7. Now you have notifications from the calendar showing what’s coming up, as well as a quick summary of the weather. The overcrowded notification can annoy you. And iOS7 only displays the updates, like new mail or SMS, but you have to go the apps to see the content you just received.   However with Android’s notification drawer, you can take action and respond without opening whatever app.

#5 Images with Contact List

N3uC80Fk
Android can automatically import photos for your contacts from the contacts email accounts. Which makes it a lot easier to see your friends contact pictures in your virtual address book than it is with iOS 7.

#4 Google Now Trumps Siri

fZ9OHk15
Google Search is the most preferred search engine by the masses. Google Now is extremely quick and can parse web pages to find the most relevant information. On the other hand, Siri produces results from Microsoft’s Bing search engine. However Siri can be appreciative when it comes to “assistant” commands, like when you want to set up an internal calendar event.

#3 Multimedia Ease

vlX6Dc3d
Android is fine with your music files, let it come from anywhere. There are bevy of music players like Play Music and Power Amp. However even with all the new things iOS 7 has brought, you require iTunes if you want to load your iPhone up with songs.  In the same way you need other intermediate software to convert photos and videos to be compatible with iOS devices, where as with Android, just transfer and enjoy.

#2 More Free Applications

Jo649UN5

Though Google Play doesn’t offer better quality apps than App Store, there are plenty of free apps that can fulfill your specific needs.  

 

#1 Unlock Options

With Android you can unlock the phone to any app you want, like accessing contacts, camera or messages, from single unlocking swipe. The new iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner is pretty cool, but it doesn’t offer cool options like Android does for unlocking.

Google Doodle celebrates John Wisden the creator of ‘the Bible of Cricket’


Google has celebrated the 187th anniversary of the birth of English cricketer, and creator of ‘the Bible of Cricket‘, John Wisden.

Born in Brighton on September 5, 1826, little is known about Wisden’s early life.

 w

Following the death of his father he was cared for by the notable wicket keeper Tom Box who encouraged his cricketing abilities.

He made his debut for Sussex at 18 years of age.

At the peak of his powers, Wisden, who went on to play 187 first-class cricket matches for Kent, Middlesex and Sussex, was known as ‘The Little Wonder’.

He is widely considered to have been the best all-rounder of his day.

JohnWisden

Despite his significant cricketing achievements, Wisden is today most famous for creating the eponymous ‘Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack’ after retiring from the game.

The Almanack was first published in 1864 and a new volume has appeared every year since then. Wisden 2013 is therefore the 150th edition.

When it was first published the Almanack printed ‘full and accurate scores’ along with facts about the Derby, the St Leger, the university rowing matches ‘and other Interesting Information’.

It has been published every year without fail since its creation despite the company coming close to liquidation in 1937.

The Alamanck was even published during the war years, despite the company’s headquarters being set on fire by a German bomber – destroying their records.

This remarkable continued publication makes the Almanack the longest running sports annual in history. Today a copy of the original 1864 edition is valued at around £25,000.

John Wisden died of cancer, aged 57, in London. He is buried in Brompton Cemetery.

Today’s Doodle celebrates the Almanack using the distinctive front cover font of the Almanack against the famous yellow background that has been used on every edition since 1938.

The Doodle also features its own take on the famous woodcut of two cricketers, by Eric Ravilious, which regularly appeared on covers up until 2003 when it was replaced by a photograph of a contemporary cricketer.
