About the internet.
Just noticed this small little icon near the Gmail settings menu. Its a language input setting toolbox, with three options. English Keyboard, English Dvorak keyboard, and English writing input. Looks like the handwriting input is going to help folks on smartphones and tablets with the stylus input.
Don’t take my word for it. But it sure looks promising! There have been many blogging projects, that emerged over the years, that could have been potential competition (for the lack of any other word I could think of) for WordPress. Like Habari, Medium, Branch etc. But WordPress, with its community support and versatility, have stood the [...]
No doubt, over the years, Google Ads have become more clever, sophisticated and relevant. Or, that was the intention. “Interest based advertising” sounded something good. When it was first introduced in 2009, it promised that ads were going to get more personal. That is, Google would serve me ads based on my interests, my browsing [...]
As we all know, Google+ has a pretty slick commenting system. Actually, it is one of the things on Google+ that I wished was available elsewhere (apart from the amazing UI and numerous features). Recently, Google+ had announced its commenting system for Blogger as an inbuilt plugin. But this was only made available to the Google blogger [...]
So Google Reader is going off in July, and although we have this list of Google Reader alternatives, I found another little “non-intrusive” app that does the job a little bit better. I have about 1500+ feeds on my RSS feed list and going through them all the time looking for updates is a waste of time. That’s where this little app comes [...]

You’ll have to preorder the glasses for $1500 and pick it up from any of the Google offices in SF, NY or LA. But, not everyone is getting it, a selected few will be handpicked with a competition. What you got to do is [...]
So, Kred and Klout. If you have been living under a mouse, you wouldn’t know what they were. Kred and Klout are two major apps in the “social media influence grading” field. If you’re on Twitter, Facebook and other such social media networks (which we all are), let them know and allow them to calculate your influence score. Based on [...]
Would it be possible to put the entire universe right from the microbes to the galaxies on a single scalable frame? Apparently yes. Someone has put the whole damn thing into a single, zoomable scale that you can go from a Planck length to the galaxies in one single zoom. Amazing! Check it out here.
Animation is probably the wrong word, but that’s what mainstream media loves to call such things. This is clear wizardry! In a blog post by Center NAD, a 3D Animation training academy based out of Montreal, Canada, revealed that the video, which has already gone viral is fake and a work done by two students Normand Archambault, Loïc [...]
May be they should. Because, there’s only so much relevant friendships one can make, right? One cannot remember all your acquaintances, let alone friends. Even within friends, there’s only so much intimacy you can share. There’s been lot of studies done in this respect however. A study of 10,000 US students over a period of 35 years [...]
