POWER TIP

Gmail with IMAP

You now have the ability to use the IMAP protocol for Gmail (including Google Apps) free of charge. Unlike the POP protocol, IMAP enables you to keep your inbox synced across all devices, so that whatever you do in your email -- whether on your phone, desktop mail client, or web browser -- shows up everywhere you access your email. Reading, sending, deleting and other actions you take on your messages are reflected automatically and instantaneously any place you get Gmail.

NEW PRODUCTS & UPDATES

YouTube layer now in Google Earth

We're excited to announce the arrival of a YouTube video layer for Google Earth. It's not only a new way to explore and discover YouTube videos; using Google Earth as a navigation tool, you can zoom in on remote regions of the globe and watch videos tied to that specific location (for example, surfers in Hawaii).

Google Desktop 5.5 beta

New features in Google Desktop 5.5 (beta) include the ability to run Desktop gadgets in iGoogle, a better looking Quick Search Box, and improved Microsoft Outlook search functionality. You can use Desktop gadgets like the virtual flower pot, wireless signal meter, and media player remote on iGoogle.
http://desktop.google.com

Docs for mobile

Now you can access your list of documents and spreadsheets, and view all of these Google Docs, on your BlackBerry, iPhone or Windows Mobile device; iPhone users can also view presentations.

Google Maps Profile Pages

When you come across a map someone created or a review someone wrote, the new Profile Pages in Google Maps let you hover over the person's name to see a snippet of information about the author. Click on the nickname to access his or her complete profile page, which aggregates all the public maps and all the review he or she has created on Google Maps. You can also customize your own profile picture and information by clicking on the "My Profile" link.

Google Experimental

We're always experimenting with new Google search features, and we've made it easier than ever for you to participate in our testing. Now you can temporarily add these  experimental features to your Google searches: for example, see your search results on a timeline, navigate using keyboard shortcuts, change how your result snippets appear each time you do a search on Google, and a few other features.

MISCELLANY

"I get by with a little help from my friends," as the song goes. It's always been true in the real world; these days the help of friends (some you know, many you don't) makes online experiences all the more powerful. Open source software, Wikipedia, movie, music, book, or travel recommendations from others -- all "get by" with input and participation from lots of people. One very real-world application of this kind of collaboration we're particularly excited about is the ability to "mash up," or integrate different open software tools, to create something new. Google Maps has really benefited from this approach, because people are able to add local annotations and even up- to-the-minute details. In October the value of this particular "mashup" became very apparent when many people put together details of the various Southern California fires. To be able to see evacuation routes, new danger zones, emergency housing sites, means a real lifeline in time of need. We're grateful that people are able to make use of these tools when it really counts.

AC/DC - Hard As A Rock (mp3 + lyrics)



AC/DC - Hard As A Rock


A rollin' rock, electric shock
It gives a lickin' that doesn't stop
She line 'em up, push you 'round
Smokin' rings going 'round and 'round

Her hot potatoes
Will elevate you
Her bad behavior
Will leave you standing proud
Hard as a rock

Hard as a rock
Harder than a rock
Hard as a rock
Harder than a rock

The lightnin' rod, strike it hot
Gonna hit you like the Rushmore rock
No nicotine, no pipe dreams
So low and dirty, it's darn right mean

Hell elevator
I'll see you later
No I ain't gonna take it
I'm bustin' out
Hard as a rock

Buaian berhantu

Buaian berhantu:
BUENOS AIRES: Sekumpulan saintis Argentina diselubungi kebingungan apabila gagal merungkai misteri buaian ‘berhantu’ di sebuah taman permainan yang bergerak secara sendiri.

Akhbar The Sun melaporkan kelmarin, penduduk di bandar Firmat, Argentina, mendakwa salah satu buaian itu bergerak tanpa henti selama 10 hari berturut-turut sebelum tiba-tiba berhenti.

Ketika pakar terus berteka-teki punca misteri berkenaan, kalangan ibu bapa dan kanak-kanak sebaliknya mengaitkan kejadian aneh itu dengan hantu.

“Bagi kami, buaian itu berhantu,” kata seorang guru, Maria de Silva.

Ahli akademik menolak pembabitan medan elektrik dan magnetik sebagai puncanya menyebabkan pihak berkuasa kini terpaksa memanggil pemburu hantu. – Agensi

Ensiferum - One More Magic Potion (mp3 + lyrics)



Ensiferum - One More Magic Potion


Once when we were returning from a battle
We got lost in a gloomy forest
in the middle of the woods
we saw an old house
with tired minds we knocked
the door very loudly
Old woman opened the wooden door
She asked us to come in
with kind words
From her pot arose a scent so weird
Stunning and bitter but very summoning

Bring me a magic potion
it will heal my aching wounds
A taste so bitter that makes
my bleeding soul feel so good
It will make us sing and dance
in our endless feast
Or it might even unleash
the beast in me

She filled out pints with that devils beverage
And served another round with an hideous grin
The world was spinning in a new light I saw everything
and everyone was singing this song

With nature, trolls and the spirits of the forest
We are one; let our singing rise up into the stars
The witch's magic drum was still beating hard
When a goblin brought me a new pint and together we roared

Drink and dance!
People of the forest sing with us!
Who wants to brawl with me?
Who can shape a kantele from a pike's jaw?
Like the great one once did

Close your eyes
Calm your mind and drift away from the pain
Beyond dreams
Into the depths of the cauldron
Like a rain it falls
And mirrors nature's healing powers
Surrender this time
And relief you shall find

Catcher of souls
hunter of spirits
Grant us the final frop of the life's elixir
I want to drown all my misery
Into the green trolls blood
And brown swamp drink
Fight against diminishing time
Burden of a solitary warrior's life

Bring me a magic potion
it will heal my aching wounds
A taste so bitter that makes
my bleeding soul feel so good
It will make us sing and dance
in our endless feast
Or it might even unleash
the beast in me

Queensrÿche - The Hands (mp3 + lyrics)


Queensrÿche - The Hands


When I'm lost... I find a way.
I hear voices. I feel them surround me,
Pull me from the edge.
I close my eyes and... .

My luck keeps holding strong,
Even when the boot comes down.
Waiting for the revolution but there's no one around except the
... hands out of nowhere, saving me again.
There's always something there watching out for me,
If I'm suffocating, it gives me air.

Finally now I remember,
But where I'm going now, I'm not sure.
Only one thing matters much to me anymore.

I'm looking for you.
Can you imagine? You can't think.
You won't find a way this time to frighten me.
You're running scared, now, always looking
Over your shoulder for a place where
You don't see my face.

But my luck keeps holding so strong,
Even with the state I'm in.
I'm like a revolution of one, even when I stumble I win.

Because there's hands out of nowhere, saving me again.
There's always something there, watching out for me.
When I'm suffocating, it gives me air.

I'm like a cat with only a few lives left
And I'm crawling through the shadows.
Watching my back waiting for the attack that I know is
Coming... I feel it's near.

Multiply launch Multiply Toolbar



Today Multiply launch Multiply toolbar that works with Internet Explorer and Firefox. Quote from The Multiply Blog
If you've ever wanted both an easier way to constantly keep up-to-date with the latest from your Multiply network and a dead-simple way to post new content, it sounds like you want the brand new Multiply Toolbar.

If the mention of the toolbar causes you to feel a strange sense of déjà vu, it might have something to do with the toolbar preview we showed you a little while back. Or perhaps, if you're in the MUDS group (yay!), you may already be using it, thanks to the sneak preview we posted there late last week.

One particularly nice feature is the integrated drag-and-drop photo uploader. Click the "Post" button followed by "Photos" and simply drag your photos onto the upload box -- no extra messy browser plugins needed!

As you probably already know, the toolbar works with Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers, so there's no reason to not give it a try.

Beer bottle in man's colon



Doctors in central Kenya have successfully removed an empty half-litre beer bottle from a man's colon, a report said Friday, but how it got there remains a mystery.

The 26cm bottle was removed on Monday from the colon of the 33-year-old man after two operations in a Kiambu District Hospital, about 20km from the capital, the Daily Metro newspaper reported.

Although the man, whose identity was not disclosed, said he had pushed the bottle through his rectum, Okoth said it was nearly impossible for the man to have done that by himself.

Google launch Google News for facebook



Google News Blog: Google News goes social:
Whether it is from our homepage, one of our RSS feeds, or on a mobile device, Google News seeks to connect people with the news that matters to them -- wherever they may be. As part of that goal we are pleased to announce the Google News Application for Facebook. This experimental application enables users to create custom sections or select from a set of pre-defined topics, then browse and share stories with their friends on Facebook. We are trying a couple things differently with this application, and it is still in beta, but we think that it adds value to the Facebook experience and to users' overall news experience. Enjoy!

Paramore - Crushcrushcrush (lyrics + mp3)



I got a lot to say to you
Yeah, I got a lot to say
I noticed your eyes are always glued to me
Keeping them here
And it makes no sense at all

They taped over your mouth
Scribbled out the truth with their lies
Your little spies
They taped over your mouth
Scribbled out the truth with their lies
Your little spies

Crush
Crush
Crush
Crush, crush
(Two, three, four!)

Nothing compares to, a quiet evening alone
Just the one two, of us who's counting on
That never happens
I guess I'm dreaming again
Let's be more than this

If you want to play it like a game
Well, come on, come on, let's play
'Cause I'd rather waste my life pretending
Than have to forget you for one whole minute

They taped over your mouth
Scribbled out the truth with their lies
Your little spies
They taped over your mouth
Scribbled out the truth with their lies
Your little spies

Crush
Crush
Crush
Crush, crush
(Two, three, four!)

Nothing compares to, a quiet evening alone
Just the one two, of us who's counting on
That never happens
I guess I'm dreaming again
Let's be more than this now

Rock and roll, baby
Don't you know that we're all alone now
I need something to sing about
Rock and roll, hey
Don't you know, baby, we're all alone now
I need something to sing about
Rock and roll, hey
Don't you know, baby, we're all alone now
Give me something to sing about

Nothing compares to, a quiet evening alone
Just the one two, of us who's counting on
That never happens
I guess I'm dreaming again
Let's be more than
No, oh

Nothing compares to, a quiet evening alone
Just the one two, of us who's counting on
That never happens
I guess I'm dreaming again
Let's be more than
More than this, oh

I believe




I believe- That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe- That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and, you must forgive them for that.

I believe- That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe - That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe- That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time!

I believe- That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe- That just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

I believe- That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe- That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe- That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I believe- That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I believe - That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other, And just because they don't argue, it doesn't
mean they do.

I believe - That two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe- That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.
