Orkut, Facebook, Myspace all on one web page...

Social networking Sites – All in one site Yesterday when I was checking my Orkut account and then my Face book account (Fortunately I am not using Myspace or Linked In), a thought came to my mind; what if a web site which allows me a single sign in to all my account (Orkut & Face book here) and launch the 2 web site side by side. This will give me the facility to have single web page and will minimize my efforts like opening a new tab, typing in my id and password etc.... If you have used blogger, then it will make sense to understand my concept. The web page should be similar to blogger where in you can re-arrange the frames (Which will contain Orkut, Facebook etc...)them as per your wish. We can have some features like if you write some scrap in one scrap book then you get by default the same scrap in other scrap book. Also the host web page may offer you something like finding friends who are there in Orkut and not in Face book or vice versa. I don’t know if technically it

Mobile Testing Start-ups

Few days back I started reading blogs (related to mobiles) and started digging more into stuffs which are related to mobile market and I found it really interesting. One area which I find very promising is “Testing mobile apps”. But the challenges are many. Almost every 6 months or may be even less handset makers are coming with new mobile OS. Take the example of Google which brought “Android”, Apple’s Iphone came with its own OS, Palm OS announced ALP 3.0. So it’s like the basic system is not stable or in other words it’s undergoing a lot of change unlike computers where in we have a concept of new version releases. But even the PC OS version is not that frequent as we have in the case of Mobile phone OS. So the question is “can we see that market to be stable?” Will the big giants like Google, Apple, Nokia etc. will be in a position to put a check on this? If we analyze it further, we can actually see a possibility of “start-ups” coming into picture which can actually capture the m

Google, Google and Google…

G1- The next big thing in mobile market is not yet in market but ask any techie he will list down almost all the features of it. I have not seen G1 but have read a lot on many web sites, reviews about it. To tell you in brief G1 is loaded with Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail with Contacts, Calendar, Google Talk and YouTube. After proving its mettle in World Wide Web from product like Google Search, Gmail, Orkut etc, it is now trying to capture the fastest growing market of “Telecom World” which grew from 1.6 billion in September 2007 to 5.1 billion in September 2008 [Source: AdMob Mobile Metrics Report]. What I can see around in near future is Google, Google and Google everywhere. Buying mobile OS start-up “Android” and then venturing into mobile market to tap the mobile business is one of the most calculated step of Google which hint about the way Google want to be market leader. Today evening when I was going through “Read Write Web” site, BlogRovr indicated a new blog update ab

New Features in Task ReportingTool

This is how the application new UI looks like.... After looking into the previous application, I though like I should put some more feature to make it more easy and attractive to use. Feature enhancements which are done: 1. Option of Selecting a single day 2. Option of providing a keyword to search your sent mail items. 3. Ready to send mail A checkbox has been provided to select the option of pulling out task report for a single day. When the checkbox is checked, app will also draft a mail for you, where in you have just have to type the recipients name and press Ctrl+S. A textbox has been provided for the user to enter the keyword for searching sent mail items.If nothing is entered, by default the sent items will be searched on the keyword "status".
