Google planning to launch a new layout

Thursday, January 25, 2007


I was just browsing to get some information about google and guess wot I found. Yes, I found that google is planning to recreate their web site with some changes. The changes are quite obvious from the screen shot attached here. But they have not yet released this new layout and randomly it is appearing in various choosen ip address. so if you are lucky then you can view this new layout while searching for something but next time you may again see the same old layout. Nothing to worry about this. Hope google will make it public soon.

Want something better than Gmail...Walla Mail is for you

Wednesday, January 10, 2007


Gmail with its offering of more then 2 GB space has created quite a stir in the market. The simplest yet powerful interface of google made the people crazy. At some point of time the Gmail invitation was for sale in E-Bay. But dont you think this 2-3 GB space may fall sort for you if you have subscribed to many mailing list and you receive large attachments with pictures and many files.
Here is an alternative for you in the form of Walla mail. It offers you an unbelievable 5 GB space and that too without an invitation. It means you can just go to their website and fill up a simple form and sign-up. Now you have 5 GB of space at your possesion and you can store all the e-mails and any attachments you would like.
With popularity of g-mail, in many of the corporate houses it has been blocked but the walla mail is open to all users. So you can access it nay where any time.
It has a very simple Interface as evident from the screen shot below:

The compose screen is having a very Rich Text Editor:

It even offers a Rich text signature that means you can insert pictures and Animation in signature (which lacks in gmail).
You can create your own folder and sort incoming e-mail into respective folders (but you can not set rule, you have to do it manually)
One of the annoying feature they have what they call is for abuse protection is that each time you send an e-mail you have to go through a verification process.
So if you feel like having a 5 GB e-mail account without wwaiting for an invitation then click here.

Another nice product from Google stable is the improved online version of Picasa Photo Album which is now called Picassa Web Album. So Picassa now allows you to publish your photos to the web from the software itself. If you do not want to download and install Picasa, you can simply use the web interface to create an album and upload photos to show it to the world. And if you do not want to make your album public it offers you the feature to make it private and share among the people you would like to share.

In order to access this feature you just need a google account, if you do not have one then you can create a account in the Picasa Web Album Link at:

As a free user it offers 250 MB of space, which is enough to host around 1000 photos taken in a camera with 2 MP resolution. If you ever feel then you can always upgrade your account and as a paid member you can have a space upto 250 GB at a nominal cost.
