Now start using gmail when you are offline

Web-based email is great because you can check it from any computer, but there's one little catch: it's inherently limited by your internet connection. From public WiFi to smartphones equipped with 3G, from mobile broadband cards to fledgling in-flight wireless on airplanes, Internet access is becoming more and more ubiquitous -- but there are still times when you can't access your webmail because of an unreliable or unavailable connection.

Today we're starting to roll out an experimental feature in Gmail Labs that should help fill in those gaps: offline Gmail. So even if you're offline, you can open your web browser, go to, and get to your mail just like you're used to.

Once you turn on this feature, Gmail uses Gears to download a local cache of your mail. As long as you're connected to the network, that cache is synchronized with Gmail's servers. When you lose your connection, Gmail automatically switches to offline mode, and uses the data stored on your computer's hard drive instead of the information sent across the network. You can read messages, star and label them, and do all of the things you're used to doing while reading your webmail online. Any messages you send while offline will be placed in your outbox and automatically sent the next time Gmail detects a connection. And if you're on an unreliable or slow connection (like when you're "borrowing" your neighbor's wireless), you can choose to use "flaky connection mode," which is somewhere in between: it uses the local cache as if you were disconnected, but still synchronizes your mail with the server in the background. Our goal is to provide nearly the same browser-based Gmail experience whether you're using the data cached on your computer or talking directly to the server.

Offline Gmail is still an early experimental feature, so don't be surprised if you run into some kinks that haven't been completely ironed out yet. We've been using offline Gmail internally at Google for quite a while (I've read thousands of messages and answered hundreds en route to visit my son and my daughter). And it's saved me more than once when my home network connection ran into issues (we have squirrels at home that love to chew through outside cable wires). Now we're ready to have a larger set of people try it out, so we're making it available in Gmail Labs for those of you who want to test out Gmail's latest and greatest and send us your feedback.

We're making offline Gmail available to everyone who uses Gmail in US or UK English over the next couple of days, so if you don't see it under the Labs tab
yet, it should be there soon. Once you see it, just follow these steps to get started:
  1. Click Settings and click the Labs tab.
  2. Select Enable next to Offline Gmail.
  3. Click Save Changes.
  4. After your browser reloads, you'll see a new "Offline0.1" link in the upper righthand corner of your account, next to your username. Click this link to start the offline set up process and download Gears if you don't already have it.

Watch video's in Gmail Chat box

See this new feature from Google Gmail Team.Now you can see the videos in your chat box when u pass some video links of youtube as well as google videos.

If you receive (or send) a link to a video in a chat message, you'll see a preview of the video right in your chat window.

Click the preview, and the video will play right there. Just remember to say something every once in a while or your friends will probably catch on that you're enjoying the dramatic chipmunk more than their conversation...

Magic Trick With Google

Here’s a magic trick to surprise friends with; go to the flash-based fake Google homepage by Dark Arts Media. Ask someone casually to watch the Google logo; don’t announce you’re about to perform a magic trick. Now click anywhere on the page while pointing at the logo with the other hand, and then move two of your fingers to completely cover the the “o"s in the Google logo. When you remove the fingers, hopefully to much surprise, the letters “o” will be missing from the logo.

Now ask the visitor to move her fingers over the missing “o"s, and click on the page again. After your friend removes the fingers, the logo will be complete again.

The trick here? Whenever you click on the page, the letters will disappear after five seconds. Clicking again will make them reappear after five seconds. (A third click, by the way, will change the page to an actual Google homepage so you can perform searches then.) If you successfully perform this trick, let us know!

Access Internet From Mobile Using Computers Internet Connection

Now as with most mobile hacks, this is limited to symbian mobiles which includes almost all Nokia Series60 and Many Sony Ericsson phones.

Why do I need this?

Yep. I felt the same long time back and also left the idea, but our reader Manish wanted to know this. And now I am done with this I am finding this quite useful. I need internet on mobile only to update themes, games and other stuff. Downloading themes, softwares and other stuff on PC and then sending them to mobile is one option but I always find its tedious.

This one is really better as its FREE and speed is much better than what GPRS ever offered!

How it will work?

We normally connect PC and Mobile for file transfer and data synchronization. One step ahead, we use GPRS on mobile to connect internet on PC side. All these means, two devices can connect to each other and share Internet. Only remaining possibility left to check was, can mobile dial/use/access internet on PC?

And here is the solution which will work for sure but may need some efforts…

Access Internet From Mobile Using Computers Internet Connection


  1. A PC with internet connection. OS does not matter. Also it doesn’t matter how you connect to internet from PC.
  2. A symbian handset with GnuBox - a free and open-source tool which will do thing on your handset.
  3. mRouter to do things on PC side. Its optional but can save your lots of time. You can manually handle

Now first requirement is obvious, lets take care of the remaining too…

Preparing PC side…

#using mRouter (Windows only)

Windows user can download mRouter. Then install it on your PC and restart the machine.

Next you need to configure mRouter which is quick & easy. Tam Hannahere. explained it very well

#without mRouter

Now all major OS have internet connection sharing feature.

On windows, you need to add a new modem and attach it to COM port which is used fro Mobile-PC communication. As an example check this article for details on how to do it on Windows, Symbian Mobile & Bluetooth channel combo.

Covering all details of other OS is not possible here. Check tutorials section below for a matching reference.

Preparing Mobile side using GnuBox…

Download GnuBox version for your handset models.

GnuBox have a dedicated page here. Do not forget to check it, as it have

For particular instructions for your handset, OS combo, check tutorials from following section.

Tutorials & References…

Official GnuBox page covers most of the details but its not enough for many users. So here is the list of tutorials & references which may help you…





You can find many vidoes dedicated for gnubox on YouTube. Watch one which best suits for your task. :-)

Thats it. I know it sounds a lot of work! But its worth it… ;-)

I have done this on Nokia N70 and using mRouter on Windows XP machine. So I am quite sure it will work. Still if you stuck somewhere feel free to comment… :-)

Fun with GTalk/Pidgin: Changing your status messages programatically

We have always seen people trying to come up with catchy one-liners and cool slogans as their gtalk status messages. On being unable to come up with cool, funky and _original_ status messages to impress friends and colleagues, I decided to put on the programmer’s hat and came up with ways to set these status messages through a simple program. Advantages? Well, enormous. Once you can control the status message string through a program, you can basically rotate it (Rotating status messages do look cool :) ), update it automatically every 1 minute, write a scripts that ‘copies’ your friends status messages periodically :P… Seriously, the opportunities are limitless and only await your imagination! GTalk status messages can be thought on the lines of a Publish-Subscribe Messaging. To understand this, think of a simple newspaper. It publishes some information everyday and its reader in a way subscribe to this information. In the same way your messenger status message is published by youand it is “subscibed” by your friends. This can be thought of as a kind of Multicasting group. So, as part of this blog, I will basically discuss the Google Talk XMPP protocol and will focus on 2 popular IM that use this: GTalk for Windows and Pidgin for Linux (actually pidgin is multi platform)

Configuring Pidgin (in Linux):

For this you will need libpurple-bin to be installed on your system. You can find this in all common linux repositories. For eg. in Ubuntu, this can be done by a simple command:

$ sudo apt-get install libpurple-bin

Once this is done, we need a simple shell script to change our status message. For eg. the script below, makes the current date/time being set up in the status message in case you are “available” in the format :

Wed Jul 2 13:46:53 EDT 2008

and updates it every 30 seconds.

while test 1 = 1; do
if test "`purple-remote getstatus`" = "available"; then
purple-remote "setstatus?status=available&message=${msg}"
sleep "${sleep_time}s"

This file can be downloaded here.

Let us call it

Now what remains is just to execute this with pidgin running and you are done! The status messages will keep on changing every 30 seconds and I guarantee it will be fun :) Please don’t tamper much with the sleep time because while you are chatting, your status message is displayed on your friend’s side whenever it is changed. So you can imagine that it becomes quite irksome for your friend to continuously notice your status message change.

Configuring GTalk (in Windows):

Configrung GTalk messages programatically in Windows is a little tricky (another reason to switch to open source linux:) ) . For this, you need to have a Java Development environment in your system as we need to write XMPP application code using a well known API called Smack API which is in Java.

So, first of all, let us start with installing Java on the system (if you donot already have it) which you can get here. Once this is done, we need to get the Smack API which is an open source, pure Java library for working with XMPP (clients only). The API can be downloaded from The source code for this can be obtained from download the appropriate libraries and put the JAR files in your classpath. If you can’t figure out how it is done, please Google your way around or refer this.

Now, we get down on writing the code!

The java file will look like:

// Import appropriate headers and packages
XMPPConnection connection = new XMPPConnection("");
connection.login("username", "password");
Presence presence = new Presence(Presence.Type.available);
presence.setStatus("Hello Friends!");
Thread.sleep(30000); // Sleeps for 30 seconds
catch (XMPPException e)

The thing to notice here is that the argument of setStatus is a String. So, to rotate your status message, just use the following function:

    private static String rotate(String input)
return input.substring(1) + input.charAt(0);

which takes in a simple string as input and rotates it one character at a time:




So, get down to it and Enjoy!
