Divide Your Gmail Inbox

At times, opening different tabs for your sent e-mails, drafts, chats etcetera, and constantly navigating between those tabs can be quite tiresome.

Multiple Inboxes, an inbox enhancement provided in Gmail Labs, enables you to see multiple views of your inbox on one screen. However, do remember that this feature does not allow you to view multiple Gmail accounts or multiple inboxes as a single webpage. Instead, it enables you to have one pane showing all incoming messages, one for starred messages, one for messages with a particular label, one for drafts, and so on. The feature can be activated on Gmail Labs page through the following steps;
1 While logged in to Gmail, click on Settings

2 Go to the "Labs" tab and check the enable checkbox for Multiple Inboxes.

3 After saving the changes, you will see the default three-panel view in your inbox To make changes to the default view, go to the Settings and click on the "Multiple Inboxes" tab that will now appear in the horizontal tabs list.

4 Make your desired changes from the options available; you can basically specify which folders should appear on each pane Even though it Is possible to divide your inbox to up to nine panes, it is recommended that you do not split it in more than four panes in order to keep things manageable.

Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions - PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Review

Marvel's famous web slinger bounces back for yet another action-packed adventure in Spider-Man. Shattered Dimensions. With the developer being Beenox, the formula has been changed around a bit, which though refreshing is a slightly underwhelming experience.
The story revolves around the accidental destruction of the Tablet of Order and Chaos, a mystical artifact wtth magical power, during a battle between Spider-Man and Mysteno. Through a twist of fate, the Tablet's shattered pieces make their way into the hands of various villains across the different Marvel universe realities, causing problems across the multiple dimensions - and it's now up to each world's Spider-Man to restore the balance. Although comic scribe, Dan Slott penned down the story, it falls way short of engaging the player within the game world. The best you will get out of the experience are a few genuinely witty one-lmers before the plot wears thin.

Taking on a linear approach as opposed to most games in the series, Shattered Dimensions' main focus is placing the player in four different alternate realities - each with its own unique game style and mechanics. There is the Amazing universe, which plays like the games we are accustomed to, the Ultimate universe where Spider-Man dons a Symbiote costume to destroy enemies, the Spider-Man 2099 dimension with a more futuristic focus and delightful free-falling sections, and the 1933 Noir universe that has Spider-Man sneaking in the shadows and taking on enemies Batman-style. The change of pace is pretty favourable and brings the game a certain degree of quality. Combat is easy to get used to and works well, though a troublesome camera is irritating at times. The game's trump card is the Web of Destiny challenge available at each level, which provides a deep level of replayability by allowing players to defeat enemies, find collectibles and beat timed objectives in order to level-up with experience points These can then be spent to unlock health upgrades, extended combos, alternate costumes and other goodies.
Visually, the game environments are distinct from one another, with eel-shaded, neon-tinted and black-and-white areas punctuating the aesthetics. While it isn't anything groundbreaking, each level looks comfortable and feels just right. The voice-acting is quite good, with veteran actors, such as Neil Patrick Harris, reprising their roles as the webslinger's many incarnations. The familiar voices all sound well, and help players bond with the Spider-Man they control.
The multiple-worlds concept that Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions portrays works to a certain degree, though not the way you would expect it to. Weak storyline and technical flaws aside, the title makes for a good playthrough with some good concepts, entertaining gameplay and bonus content. If you're a die-hard fan of the superhero, be sure to websling your way to this one.

How Does A Search Engine Work?

How it works
Though the workings of different search engines vary from each other, they all perform some basic functions. Essentially, all search engines work in an orderly fashion, performing three main operations -Web crawling, indexing and searching.
Web cmwflng: Before it can give you the information you want, a search engine has to find the information you are looking for. To find that information, search engines, which are basically webpages that respond to search queries, "crawl" the Web. Web crawling or spidering is one of the basic functions of a search engine. Spidering is achieved by retrieving stored information from webpages by means of a bot, referred to as a Web crawler or spider. A Web crawler is a computer program that navigates the internet in an automated, organised manner and retrieves the information directly from the page itself. It makes a copy of every link on each website visited, and analyses the content for indexing. Websites and URLs are not the only entries that spiders identify, they also take note of words within pages and where they were found, though means and techniques could vary from search engine to search engine.
Indexing: Once the spiders have collected all the information, it needs to be stored, compiled and organised so that it is accessible for users and available for searching. To be more than a website that lists links, search engines often store additional information including the frequency of the occurrence of words on a page, and the importance given to them (for rankings). Some engines also assign "weight" to each entry - measuring the differing value of words as they appear on a certain page. The entire information is then compacted and stored - ready for indexing. The most efficient means of building an index is by creating a hash table, which assigns a formula to the numeric value of each word, and consists of a hash number and a pointer to the actual data This arrangement makes the indexing and storage system effective for quick search results - even in cases of a complicated search.
Searching: This process is the first instance of the user's interaction with the search engine. Step one, build a query; step two, submit it. Once the query is submitted, it is processed by the search engine, which then extracts the information from the index.

Generic Mobile Phone Telescope

In many occasions, the stage is set for the perfect picture, and you have nothing but your less-than-perfect mobile phone camera to capture it, One of the main issues with mobile phone cameras is the fact that subjects appear further than they actually are, and that affects the photo focus. Brando's generic mobile phone telescope is a device that lets you focus far-away objects using a mobile phone camera, thus, bringing you closer to the action. It includes an adapter that has to be adjusted to the length of the mobile phone. Then, you must align the telescope base with the camera lens and screw the telescope to the base. The telescope has a 7x18-resolution lens that can be rotated to zoom in for image clarity, allowing you to capture enhanced quality photographs. The telescope is compatible with popular mobile phone brands like Nokia, Sony Ericsson, BlackBerry amongst many others. For further details on model compatibility, you can view the website. The device, however, doesn't work very effectively on clamshell or slider phones. Brand-specific mobile phone telescopes are also available -courtesy of Brando - but the generic telescope is our pick for its sheer adaptability. It is one of the smartest ways of turning your mobile phone camera into a digital camera and is available for approximately 22 US dollars

Microsoft links new smartphones to Xbox Live services

Last month, Microsoft announced that it is bringing its video game expertise to the forthcoming Windows Phone 7 line - an attempt to capitalise on the success of the Xbox 360 as the software maker tries to compete with Apple's iPhone.
Microsoft said that a dedicated group within Microsoft Game Studios will develop video games for Windows phones, help outside game publishers, and scout out small, independent game makers. Video game companies will be able to use the same tools to make a game for a Windows phone as they do for the Xbox 360 console. Microsoft's Xbox initiative may help sway some phone buyers who are already into video games. The company is also hoping that Xbox Live on Windows Phone 7 devices might get a boost from the upcoming launch of Kinect, a motion-sensing game controller for the Xbox 360. Like the Nintendo Wii, Kinect is expected to lure people who haven't traditionally been interested in video games.

Google planning to use wind energy to power data centres

Google Incorporated's energy unit entered a deal with NextEra Energy Inc to buy wind power for the next 20 years to power Google's data centres, Reuters reported. The deal came less than three months after Google invested 38.8 million US dollars in two wind farms in North Dakota, developed by NextEra Energy Resources, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Inc. The farms generate enough energy to power more than 55,000 homes.

In late 2007, the company said that it would invest in companies and do research of its own to produce affordable renewable energy at a price less than burning coal - within a few years. The company's Google Energy unit, formed in December, allows the company to buy large volumes of renewable energy from the wholesale power market.

India is threatening to ban Blackberry!

According to multiple reports, last month, India threatened Research in Motion (RIM), the maker of the BlackBerry smartphones, to address its security concerns or face having its services suspended.
India has asked for encrypted BlackBerry communications to be made easily available to its intelligence and law enforcement agencies, saying that the services could be used by militant groups to carry out attacks. The ministry also said that mobile phone operators would be obliged by law to shut its corporate e-mail and messaging services if RIM fails to meet the demands.
Officials said that RIM proposed tracking e-mails without sharing encryption details, but that was not enough. The demands followed RIM's deal with Saudi Arabia, which allowed government access to its encrypted data. But while Saudi Arabia only targeted the instant messaging service [read related story on page 58], India sought access to both e-mail and messenger.
Following issues with BlackBerry, many reports suggested that India was considering requesting Google Inc, Skype Inc and other online service providers to allow the country's law enforcement agencies access to private communications on their networks.

Twitter briefly blocked by hackers

Hackers briefly blocked access to the popular internet messaging service, Twitter, steering traffic to another website last month, where a group reportedly calling itself the "Iranian Cyber Army" claimed responsibility.
Users trying to reach Twitter on that day were redirected to a webpage that had a picture of a green flag and a message that said, "This site has been hacked by the Iranian Cyber Army". There was no evidence that the hackers are actually linked to Iran. Websites like Twitter and Facebook helped bring attention to the Iranian opposition during the country's crackdown after its June elections, with users posting minute-by-minute updates and amateur videos.
Later that day, Twitter posted a message on its blog saying that its domain name systems' records "were temporarily compromised but have now been fixed," saying it will update more details "once we've investigated more fully".

Yahoo!, Microsoft ink Web-search agreement

Yahoo! and Microsoft announced that they have finalised the details of their planned internet search and advertising partnership. The companies hope to implement the deal next year with the approval of the anti-trust regulators.

The plan to ink a 10-year web-search and advertising pact was unveiled in july and promises to set the stage for a Yahoo!-Microsoft offensive against Google, the king of the lucrative search and advertising market.
Under the no-cash deal, Yahoo! will use Microsoft's new Bing search engine on its own sites while Yahoo! will provide the exclusive global sales force for premium search advertisers.

Microsoft revamps Bing online maps

Microsoft released a revamped version of Bing Maps with street views and other features already offered by rival Google's free online mapping service.
The Bing Maps upgrade released in beta, or test form, also boasts a gallery for applications, such as live traffic data feeds or input from travel webcams or Twitter Maps, according to Microsoft. New features include letting users zoom in or out of immersive imagery stitched together for 360-degree viewing. Bing Maps users can swoop down from "bird's eye" views all the way into buildings, according to Microsoft technical evangelist Chris pendleton. "With bird's eye, high resolution aerials, high fidelity, accurate road data plus the new addition of street-side photography and enhanced bird's eye all available in Bing Maps as map-based content, I think the game is afoot yet again!" Pendleton said in a blog post.
