Google, is promoting HTML 5 . Now, they have introduced a look of how HTML 5 can be used to create web graphics, designs etc. They also said that you could play YouTube videos without the Flash Player.
The Flash Player has a lot of security loopholes in it. The amount of securiy threats to flash are increasing day by day.
So Google has launched this demo of HTML 5 to help users understand the threat of flash and to make them have a look at HTML 5.
To have a look at the demo go to http://www.youtube.com/html5
Google’s Similar Pages for Chrome extension adds a button to the toolbar that uses Google’s search algorithms to find other web sites similar to the one you are currently browsing.
Once you’ve installed the extension, you can simply click the new button in the toolbar to see a list of related pages, complete with thumbnail previews, descriptions, and a link. The related sites are usually fairly accurate, but where it seems to work best is when browsing more permanent articles on a specific subject—for example, using the similar pages button on the Wikipedia article on Shadow Copy brought back a list of useful related pages, but if you are on the home page of a site, the results will be more general.
If you need to do a lot of research and can’t always think of the right query to use on Google, this extension could come in handy. Google Similar Pages is a free download, works wherever Chrome extensions do.

Google News has yet another feature which tends to amaze users. This new feature in Google news is known as “Add a Section”. Users can now add a section to Google news about a topic on which they need the news feed.
There are various topics to choose from like cars,technology etc.
To add a section, a user must not be necessarily logged on, but logging in provides a good utiliztion of the tool.
The website creates a cookie of the Google News page, whereby if you visit it the next time, it remembers your last added section without even logging in. But the sad part is that if you manually remove the cookies or use a software such as CCleaner or TuneUp Utilities, you need to add a section whenever you visit the page.
To add a section go to news.google.com and on the top right corner of your screen you could see this feature.
Google’s phone called the Nexus One, is about to be revealed at the CES 2010 next week.It’s estimated price tag is to be 530$ for the unlocked version and 180$ with the plan.
The Nexus One could operate a 1Ghz processor and could run the Google Chrome Browser in it.
An unlocked version would please a lot of users. Though the price with the plan is a bit high.
Google this week announced it’s very own URL shortening service. The service is pretty good in itself and is a strong competitor to the world’s most popular shortening service bit.ly. “.ly” in bit.ly stands for Libya and google URL shortening service ends with .”.gl”!
Google has yet again brougt in those keywords which it believes separates its product over the rest.
Stability – ensuring that the service has very good uptime
Security – protecting users from malware and phishing pages
Speed – fast resolution of short URLs.
Bit.ly is the only strong competitor to this new service by Google.As we have seen lately Google is buying a lot of companies to improve its technology. In recent months it got Gizmo5, reCAPTCHA,TiVO and now maybe bit.ly..
It is rumored that the deal will take place for 20-45 million dollars.
Oh! Well oh well! It is really hard to make predictions for the iPhone . It has nearly got every possible thing.
But still there are a few things which are missing and are listed below:-
1. Camera – The iPhone is very much supposed to get a 5MP camera which supports video recording.
2. Non-Jail-breakable- Apple is going to ship non-jail-breakable iPhones. But as we all know these dev people are unbeatable.
3. WiFi/n – This is a new level of wifi which supports extremely high data transfer at a tremendous speed. The iPhone is bound to have this.
4. Larger display- This feature is rumored at various sources that the iPhone will get a larger display of 5inch.
5. Upgraded iPhone OS- The iPhone OS would be upgraded to 4.0 which should add an office app (iwork) and also Bluetooth transfer capabilities with other non-iphone OS devices.
Yes Yes, i do know that Apple has recently released a new iMac and it would be dumb to make any further changes so soon.
But guess what, Apple is planning to release another iMac somehere in the end of 2010 or start of 2011.
The features to be included are:-
1.Intel Core i9 processors- Oh Gosh! these are to be developed by Intel(ofcourse) and it has been rumored that Intel has set up a partnership with Apple for the i9’s.It is codenamed GulfTown and has 6 Cores.
2.46′- It is also truly believed that Apple is going to launch their 46 inch iMac…wow…who would then go for a tv? instead just plug in a Tv Tuner Card.
3. 32 or 64 Gigabytes Of RAM- Just imagine how fast the PC would work with such beasts loaded.
4. 6TB of storage.
5. nVidia/AMD Better Graphics.
6. As usual and 100% sure is the costly price of the imacs….ha ha
Wow! Lets hope Apple rolls out these Upgrades soon…..
Ha Ha! With so many rumors about the Apple Tablet floating around the World Wide Web and people making predictions whether the much awaited Apple Tablet would run iPhone OS or MacOS, I thought why can’t it run Chrome OS instead. Funny and Impossible isn’t it?
But if you just give it a moment and think about it. It could be a great idea! It would give both the tech giants to co-operate with each other and resolve their rivalries. It would also help the users as the Apple Tablet would thus be comparatively cheaper.
DO POST IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS ABOUT THIS!
Till now we have been looking at what Google has done new. All of us wish well for Google and it will continue to be a Great organization. What is required is an extra dose of innovative ideas on which it can work. As what can be better than the society giving it ideas on which it can work on to benefit mankind. Here is one such idea.
Let us christen it as the “ Google Human Tracker”. Some of the FAQs that would emerge on this topic have been addressed below:-
Q1. What would this application do ?
A1. Allow others to track your physical coordinates .
Q2. Who would love to use this ?
A2. So many users would like this idea. Some of them are:
Mothers who want to keep an eye on their children.
Police who would like to track criminals.
Companies who would like to monitor the movement of its sales force.
Intelligence agencies of various nations who would want to keep a tab of its spies in other countries with a view to monitor their safety .
Armies of the worlds who would want to find out soldiers who have been lost on sea or land.
And many others that others can think of (Please do post it on this blog).
Just imagine the world of applications that it can open up. Wow! Is the word.
Q3. How would it work ?
A3. Every person , say A, who would agree to allow himself to be tracked by another one, say B, would have to exchange a unique password. When ever B would like to find out where A is, B will type out the unique pass word which has been given to him by A. The request will flow from the internet into the telephony data base. The mobile phone of person A will catch the signal from his mobile and will relay it to B.
Q4. What is the difference between Google Latitude and the proposed Google Human Tracker ?
A4. The Google Human Tracker is an upgrade to Google Latitude. In the Google Latitude, A necessarily has to accept the invitation of B in case A wishes to allow B to know of his/her physical coordinates. Whereas, in the Human Tracker, A would be completely online for viewing by B without A getting to know of it.
Q4. Is it not an invasion of personal privacy ?
A4. Yes it would provided one does not trust the other. But in this case it would not be applicable as A would have already agreed to allow and B to be in know of his/her coordinates at any point of time.
Q5. What are the security features ?
Each individual will have a unique password which would be completely encrypted using Blowfish or another encryption.
Q6. What’s so unique?
In our application, even if your phone gets lost, you will be able to track it just by entering your unique password. Whereas in Google Latitude, you need to accept the invitation of the user of the phone from which you send an invitation.
Ofcourse the person who has pinched your phone would not accept your invitation.
