People who tend to get themselves into unpleasant ‘email’ situations can finally breathe free because of the ‘undo send’ feature launched by Gmail. If a user feels that the email he just sent should be stopped, he should hit the Undo Send button in 5 seconds. The button will return the message to its draft form. The feature is found at Gmail labs, under Settings.

What do you think is a better phone, Google Phone or the iPhone? Both Google phone and iPhone have their own set of plus points and negative points:
Here is the laydown of the GI Google phone launched on Tuesday, September 23,2008
Five good things about G1, Google Phone
1] Capacitive touch screen: the GI has a capacitive touch screen just like the Iphone this means it is very responsive when you touch it
2] Easy to use Interface : the user interface is intuitive and dosent leave you wondering why did they do that : the layout is easy to understand
3] Having a keybord unlike the Iphone the Gi has a real physical keybord for typing out emails and messages
4] Great google services integration : it couldn’t be any more tightly knit. Gmail Google map with street view Google search You tube and others are built in the phone and gret work
5] Upgradeability: The android UI is open source and can be upgraded and added to overtime.
Five Flaws of Google Phone or G1
1] The hardware: The GI feels cheap the plastic aren’t high quality.
2] The camera: the GI may have a 3 mega pixel camera with auto focus but it doesn’t have a flash nor a vanity mirror it is a bit slow.
3] The keyboard :- the buttons are small and flat.
Both Google phones and iPhones are smart phones designed for users who want easier access to the Web than is offered by the current generation of RIM (RIMM) BlackBerries. Apart from the differences mentioned in the table above, Google phones and iphones have similar high resolution (320 x 480 pixel) color displays, motion sensors, support for GPS and Bluetooth 2.0, and platforms for third-party apps. Both share some of the same flaws — both are locked to their respective networks, both do not have the video recording capability and full cut-and-paste text editing, apart from the ones mentioned above.

A disorderly, messy hard disk can slow your computer down, and what adds to the mess is duplicate files that hog space for no reason. This ‘double killer’ utility finds out duplicate files and removes them leaving you with just one file.
Task Shuffle 2.2.
So you think the Windows taskbar controls you? Here is one utility that will let you turn the tables.It lets you shift the buttons for open applications anywhere you want on the taskbar, or group open documents together. By the way, it works for all Windows version even the ones back to Win’ 95
Pistachio is another utility that could come helpful enough to customize to your style of working.This background utility called Pistachio minimizes windows to the tray, snaps them together as you drag, and disables specific keys (such as the numlock key) if you like.

Fragmentation of the disk is a menace that slows down your computer. This utility can clean up the mess; it not only defragments your hard disk but defragments individual files.If you’re unsure about what needs defragging, it also gives a list of files that need it.
If your hard disk seems totally filled up and bloated, and you have no idea what exactly is taking up all that much space, here is something you should look at. Short for Windows Directory Statistics, this program shows your hard drive’s directory in multiple views, some resembling Windows Explorer—files represented by 3D boxes in full color. You will definitely come to know what the items that are clogging space are.
We knows that there are quite a few useless programs that come pre-installed with your Windows, which end up eating plenty of CPU cycles.

You might have uninstalled a particular program, but unfortunately there are still fragments lying here and there, clogging space, an absolute waste. One way to be sure that a program is all gone is the absolute uninstaller.This replaces the default Add/Remove Programs control panel in Windows, looks for extra stuff to delete after an uninstall (such as Start menu entries and useless Registry keys), and even, does batch removal of multiple programs at one time.
Eraser: Eraser is no Arnold Schwarzenegger but works just like him. With more and more modern recovery tools, it can be tough to get rid of an old computer without making sure the hard drive is wiped clean.
