Some improvements to Hangouts in Gmail

Starting today you’ll see some changes in your conversation list in Hangouts, including message snippets and the return of green “availability” bubbles to make it easier to see which of your friends are currently active. With the new search icon, you can see a list of all your chat buddies and find other friends on Hangouts. And whether you’re happy, grumpy, or any of the other seven dwarfs (plus a few not in the storybook classic), you can set your mood using one of 80 emoji. Your friends will have no problem guessing how you’re feeling that day.

These features will be rolling out today. If you’re not using Hangouts in Gmail already, click on your profile picture above your chat contacts to “Try the new Hangouts.”

Hangouts vs iMessage vs Skype vs WhatsApp
After the most recent release of #Hangouts  and #googleplusupdate  I thought it would be the right time to create a quick comparison table for the most prominent messaging applications.

Here you go! :)
Custom URLs or Vanity URLs Are Here! Visit your "Profile" section and claim your vanity URL. Mine is google.com/+AmitPaul.

The details are in this post from +Otavio Silva.

Cheers!
 
Expanding the availability of custom URLs

Custom URLs are short, easy to remember web addresses that link directly to your Google+ profile or page (like google.com/+OtavioSilva or google.com/+Toyota). They make it easier for you to connect with others, as well as promote your content, and today we're significantly expanding their availability to people and pages on Google+.

If your profile meets the following criteria, you’ll now be able to claim a custom URL:
- Has a profile photo, and
- Has at least 10 followers, and
- Has an account that's at least 30 days old

Meanwhile, any brand or business that has a linked website or is a verified local business can claim a custom URL for their Google+ page. Link and verification info is available in the Google+ Help Center: http://goo.gl/RMpxP.

Once you meet the eligibility criteria, just visit your profile or page to begin the claiming process. If you don't see the option yet, don't worry: we're expanding availability throughout the week, and you'll see the in-product notice as soon as your custom URL is ready.

We hope that custom URLs will help  you more easily promote your content on Google+, whether it be new photo collections, Hangouts On Air, or an interesting series of posts.  For ideas on how to include custom URLs in your campaigns, ad creatives and more, visit our help center: https://support.google.com/plus/?p=claim_url

''Numbers have life, they are not just symbols on paper''

Google is celebrating 84th birth anniversary of mathematical genius Shakuntala Devi, nicknamed ‘human computer’ for her ability to make complex mental calculations.

Shakuntala Devi found a slot in the Guinness Book of World Record for her outstanding ability and wrote numerous books like
.‘Fun with Numbers’,
.‘Astrology for You’,
.‘Puzzles to Puzzle You’, and
.‘Mathablit’.

She had the ability to tell the day of the week of any given date in the last century in a jiffy. Coming from a humble family, Shakuntala Devi’s father was a circus performer who did trapeze, tightrope and cannonball shows.

Her father discovered her amazing ability to memorize numbers while teaching her a card trick when she was only three years old. Thereafter he left the circus and took her on road shows that displayed her ability at number crunching.

In 1977 in USA, Shakuntala Devi competed with a computer to see who gives the cube root of 188132517 faster and she won. Similarly on June 18, 1980, Shakuntala Devi demonstrated the multiplication of two 13-digit numbers 7,686,369,774,870 × 2,465,099,745,779 picked at random by the Computer Department of Imperial College, London. She answered 18,947,668,177,995,426,462,773,730 in 28 seconds which is correct.

Shakuntala Devi recently passed away on April 21, 2013 in a hospital in Bangalore from complications of the heart and kidneys.

Did you know she had never been to school?

#WTF #NSA of #USA is doing??
Stop all these spying immediately Mr. +Barack Obama. Keep in mind that you are not above the law.
 
Not only has the NSA been working directly with major technology companies to gather information on targets of surveillance. The agency has also hacked into Yahoo's and Google's internal global networks, gathering information on their customers in bulk.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/nsa-infiltrates-links-to-yahoo-google-data-centers-worldwide-snowden-documents-say/2013/10/30/e51d661e-4166-11e3-8b74-d89d714ca4dd_story.html
Agency positioned itself to collect from among millions of accounts, many belonging to Americans.

Google announces Calico, a new company focused on health and well-being
 
I’m excited to announce Calico, a new company that will focus on health and well-being, in particular the challenge of aging and associated diseases.  Art Levinson, Chairman and former CEO of Genentech and Chairman of Apple, will be Chief Executive Officer.

OK … so you’re probably thinking wow!  That’s a lot different from what Google does today.  And you’re right.  But as we explained in our first letter to shareholders, there’s tremendous potential for technology more generally to improve people’s lives.  So don’t be surprised if we invest in projects that seem strange or speculative compared with our existing Internet businesses.  And please remember that new investments like this are very small by comparison to our core business.

Art and I are excited about tackling aging and illness.  These issues affect us all—from the decreased mobility and mental agility that comes with age, to life-threatening diseases that exact a terrible physical and emotional toll on individuals and families.  And while this is clearly a longer-term bet, we believe we can make good progress within reasonable timescales with the right goals and the right people.

Our press release has a few more details though it’s still very early days so there’s not much more to share yet.  Of course when Art has something more substantial to communicate (and that will likely take time), he’ll provide an update.  Finally, thanks to Bill Maris for helping bring this idea to life and getting Art involved, and to Sergey Brin for consistently supporting 10X thinking like this.  It’s hard for many companies to make long term investments.  So I’m tremendously excited about the innovative new way we’re funding this project.  Now for the hard work!
