Go indoors with Google Maps 6.0 for Android

Google Maps for mobile had its sixth birthday earlier this month and we’re celebrating by releasing the next generation of Google Maps for Android, which is first to get indoor Google Maps.

Mapping the vast indoors 

When you’re inside an airport, shopping mall, retail store, or other public space, Google Maps 6.0 for Android brings the freestanding map directory to the palm of your hands -- helping you determine where you are, what floor you're on, and where to go indoors. For example, in this busy travel season, you can use Google Maps 6.0 to help you find your way around airports.

Detailed floor plans automatically appear when you’re viewing the map and zoomed-in on a building where indoor map data is available. The familiar “blue dot” icon indicates your location within several meters, and when you move up or down a level in a building with multiple floors, the map will automatically update to display which floor you’re on.

Switching between features gets easier

When you open Google Maps for Android, you can do many things: view your location on the map, discover where to go with Places, get GPS turn-by-turn directions with Navigation, check in to share your location, and more. We wanted to make it easier to hop from one feature to another; so, we’ve added a drop-down menu to the top toolbar for quick access.

Discovering what’s great nearby with the new Places home screen

The new Places home screen includes popular searches for your current location, so you can find the best spots in any area you travel.

Check the walkthrough here and simply upgrade the google map from android market and enjoy the surf of 6.0

6 Things Which You Shouldn't Do On Facebook

I dont need to explain why i am writing this post. Finally i thought, its time i write a post :-) Here are the top 10 things one shouldn't do on Facebook :-

1. Adding people you don't even know
It's one thing to add an old friend and then never speak to them. It's another to add anyone whose name you kind of vaguely sort of recognize. It's like that old man in the pub who slaps everyone on the back as if they were old pals, when in actual fact he has no friends, largely because of this habit.
2. Accepting friend invitations from people you don't know
It's one thing to complain about irritating people adding you on Facebook, but if you accept those invites, you've only got yourself to blame. If you scan through your Facebook friends list, you'll doubtless find a handful of people in there you barely know. It's a horrible realisation - like when you suddenly realize your hand is resting on a knob of someone else's chewing gum underneath a desk.
3 Inviting people for joining Game or polls
If people don't want to play game, why to force him/her? Allow some time to share only when the recipient agrees to play the game or sends out message to sent invitations.

4. Use Facebook mail instead of proper email
Are you silly? Why would one use FB mail rather than other mail clients?

5. Write on a wall instead of communicating privately
The driving force behind the success of Facebook is 'Unwanted Status'. Come on, for god sake, Facebook is not for writing smileys, greeting people on their wall, its much beyond that. Does it make sense when others are watching what people are doing? Status messages like "i am confused.." "I am delighted.." " i need peace"...certainly, Facebook is not for this type of status messages.Saying hello,hi..come on, this is not SMS pathway :-)

6. Update Facebook profile when you're supposedly ill
How many times have we seen it? Someone calls in sick in the morning and then updates their Facebook profile minute-by-minute throughout the day, documenting a day of ice cream, chips, video games and jumping on the bed.Seems like some storyline of illness movie.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich - Feature Preview

After Android Honeycomb, there will be Ice Cream Sandwich for all as Google announced at a press conference in San Francisco, that the next Google OS will merge the best of Honeycomb and Gingerbread. 

Lets take a look at the Android Ice Cream Sandwich features revealed so far.

1. Getting that Honeycomb look
Built from the ground up and optimized for tablet devices, the best of Honeycomb will be available to Android phone users which will bring elements such as the slick holographic user interface, an updated app launcher, the interactive homescreen widgets and can also look forward to using the multi-task bar currently located at the bottom of the HoneyComb tablet OS.

2. New developer API
It’s good news for devs as they will now be able to build apps for tablet, phones and other connected devices under the same framework. That should help the rollout of Android apps across different hardware platforms to be done all at the same time.

4.  Music in the clouds
Much rumoured, Google finally revealed its cloud music service set to give iTunes a run for its money. Currently only available in beta to our American friends, amongst the features, you'll be able to share playlists instantly across all Android devices.

5. Movies on the move
Now Android users can get their hands on a host of movies straight from the Android Market which can be watched from the web, on your tablet and on your smartphone. On the rental front, you’ll have 30 days to keep hold of it with HD selection currently being priced at $4.99 in the US.

6. Android meets Kinect
Devs will be able to play with a 3D display system that can track movement and detect the position of a person’s head, nose and eyes. The benefits? Potentially creating devices that will let you input data and commands using facial gestures in real-time for example.  

7. One OS for all
Google has spoken of its plans to bring Android devices closer together, and while tablet devices and phones appear key to this unification, other connected devices like Google TV will also reap the benefits of the Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

8. 0-click NFC sharing
It's starting to surface on smartphone devices already, and with Ice Cream Sandwich you'll be able to share web pages, contacts, YouTube videos and more by the power of Near Field Communication.

Apple 4S - Launch Time

Its been many months of speculations, rumors and mock-ups, Apple has officially raised the curtains on the next generation handset, the iPhone 4S.There was a consistent drop in line while checking the live coverage of the same last night, but i could cover up the major part of Tim Cook's Conversations.

Some key points of the iPhone 4s are  :
  • iOS 5 running on an Apple A5 chipset
  • Dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU and PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU
  • 3.7-inch Retina Display
  • GSM and CDMA networks
  • HSDPA of up to 14.4 Mbps
  • 8MP AF rear camera with LED flash
  • 1080p video recording with Image Stabilization and Temporal noise reduction
  • Airplay mirroring
  • Internal memory - 16GB, 32GB and 64GB

Another 10 days and we would bee iPhone 4s in white and black color shades in US,Canada,Australia,UK,France,Germany and Japan.Over 70 countries and more than 100 carriers will receive the iPhone 4S before the end of this year. 

The iPhone 4S will be available for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the new 64GB model. 

Bad news is that India's launch date is not yet confirmed so we might have to be waiting for the same until next announcement. But to be honest, i really dint find these features quite interesting  just like the investors.

Some Key Points which i derived from this LiveLaunch 

  1. Apple iPhone 4S fails to wow investors, fans
  2. The iPhone 5 will be considered "improved," not "different.
