Google Buzz! What’s buzz all about?

Google today launched a new service known as buzz. Buzz integrates your Facebook and Twitter profile all under your Gmail account.
Buzz was announced at an event at the Google HQ in Mountain View , California. With Google Buzz, all your social interactions and updates can come to one place, right next to your Inbox.

The key elements are:

1. Automatic friends lists (friends are added automatically who you have emailed on Gmail)

2. “Rich fast sharing” combines sources like Picasa and Twitter into a single feed, and it includes full-sized photo browsing

3. Public and private sharing (swap between family and friends)

4. Inbox integration (instead of emailing you with updates, like Facebook might, Buzz features emails that update dynamically with all Buzz thread content)

5. “Recommended Buzz” puts friend-of-friend content into your stream, even if you’re not acquainted.
Recommendations learn over time with your feedback.

Buzz integrates perfectly with your mobile device specially iPhone and android powered ones. It is available as a webapp but can be added to the homescreen and be used as a standalone app too

Google updates UI for iPhone


Google today changed it’s UI a bit for the iPhone. Now when you go to google.com via Safari on your iPhone, the search bar is a bit changed and increased in size. It even has a new search icon.
The Web, Images , News etc also has a new border around it.

Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3

Apple rolled out version 3.1.3 of their iPhone OS. As usual updating it re-jailed the jailbroken devices. But these jailbreakers being so magical have pushed out pwnage tool 3.1.5 for Mac .

Now you could just jailbreak your 3.1.3 using the new pwnage tool safely. You could even update via the pwnage tool to continue with your current jailbreak .

Google Tablet could be named gTablet

With every passing day the rumors about the Google Tablet keep getting better. Google even released a few pictures showing how Chrome OS would look on a tablet which possibly gave a sneak peek at the Google Tablet.

The naming thing with Google has always been simple, clean and to the point as it’s search engine. For example mail is just Gmail . The two things which Google does while naming is either put a “g” in front of it or simply call it the “Google Product” . ( Except the Nexus One)

We are guessing that the name for the Google Tablet is going to be gtablet or simply Google Tablet.
Even gslate looks promising but we all are pretty much sure that Google wouldn’t pick pad for this after the revolts against the iPad.

Core i7 on a MacBook Pro!


The latest rumor about the MacWorld floating around is that an Intel i7 powered MacBook Pro is gonna make its way. GeekBench results for a “new” Core i7 MacBook Pro. According to the results, what you’re looking at above are the numbers for the MacBook Pro 6,1, sporting a nastified Intel Core i7 (dual core, not quad) 620M (Arrandale) percolating along at 2.66GHz. Other curious points here are the 4.8GHz FSB, which sounds a little screwy to us, and a final GeekBench score of 5260, which makes current MBPs clocked at the same speed look like your grandfather with a walker (those ranges hover around 3700-4000 on average). The laptop in question is also allegedly running a fresh version of Snow Leopard (build 10C3067 of 10.6.2), which certainly makes sense if someone is out there benching a new Apple product, though it’s not a number we can verify. Still, if you were using a new Apple product, would you be dumb enough to publicly share this info? Probably not, which of course raises the question that this might just be a hackintosh or some other clever spoof (even if we did see a suggestion of new MBPs on the way recently). Till then, you could dream about it and we will provide you further updates.

Apple bans Android

By now we all are quite familiar with how much control Apple has over it’s App Store. The continuous rejection of a few apps along with a rejection of competitors apps justifies it.

Recently a developer submitted an app which had the word ‘Android’ in it. Apple rejected the app and said ” Remove the A word or remove your App”. Apple earlier even rejected Google Voice from entering into the App Store and even plans to adopt Bing as it’s default search engine for the iPhone . This rivalry between Apple and Google seems promising and could result in a lot of iPhone users to switch to the Nexus One.
