There are currently four giants in the IT Industry which are competing with each other in one or an other way. One starts to work on something and the other markets something else but much more attractive for the consumers. Sometimes I see all of them going on different directions to attract as many users as they can. For instance, Apple started to attract consumers with their Music gadget iPod and then came into the competition with a bigger and better version of the operating system to compete Microsoft, and Microsoft already holding the biggest market of operating system with Windows now jumps in with Microsoft Zune for music lovers.
I was one lucky person to get google wave account few days back. So today I thought why not have a competition of something or anything. But, still so far I couldn’t make up my mind what should it be. I guess I’ll just have to do a lucky draw among people and give them the Google Wave account.
Gmail has a very unique and cool feature with the usernames. Previously wrote an article “Gmail Bug With UserID” but after getting the response from users and my friends, I realized I made a mistake and the article was totally wrong. Gmail does not have a bug, rather it is a unique feature with its usernames. If you have an account email@example.com then firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com are referred to the same username.
Today I received an email on my non-gmail account (the alternative email set in my gmail) with the link to reset the password of my gmail account. I never requested for the password reset, and I was amazed about that. The interesting thing was the email mentioned the gmail id in it for which the password reset request was made but it was not my ID. My gmail id is talalmasood but the password reset request which was made was for talal.masood. (CORRECTION TO MY THIS ARTICLE IS “GOOGLE USERNAME WITH UNIQUE FEATURE)
Yahoo Mail is not working right now. My friend Hassan just showed me the screenshot of the Yahoo! Mail and asked me that what is the issue. He is not that much into computers so he thought there might be some problem with his logging in.Yahoo Mail service is out of order and will remain for one whole day. The maintenance time begins at Friday 13th March 2009 and will end by Saturday 14th March 2009.
Google Mail aka Gmail has been working on their email service since a long time and still weeks after weeks some new unique and exciting feature comes out. Sometimes those features are some sort of mods or sometimes the mail Gmail interface gets a luxury. Just like the Gmail’s multiple Inbox mod previously launched by Google Labs, this time Gmail introduced the multiple file attachments option. Before this the users will not able to attach more than one file at a time to the composed email.
Today I logged in to my Gmail and was surprised to see the outlook of it. It was changed with a blue border around the main body of inbox (list of my emails). There in the settings I found out the new option of Themes. Gmail launched the themes for their users. With this new feature the very old fashioned simple white page interface of Gmail and almost all the google products had wiped out. People were getting bore of the simple white pages of Gmail and now they can set their favourite color scheme for their inbox.
