Gmail turns 10 today! No joke :)
 
How +Gmail Happened: The True Story 10 Years Later
/by +Harry McCracken

Ten years ago, I paid real cash on eBay for access to Gmail and Orkut, as demand was outstripping supply. This in depth piece talks to my friends +Paul Buchheit and +Kevin Fox about the engineering and design of the early product, with then product manager +Brian Rakowski and now PM +Alex Gawley about decision points and what made the service appealing to users a decade ago. It's a fun piece of web history here on April Fool's Day - and it's no joke.
Gmail turns 10 today. Here's the inside story of its creation.

Spent much of the day reading your blog. Quite interesting. Please write more. I still remember how I went into much trouble to get a Gmail account and tried to spread the news to my friends.

One of the more fun gadgets I've been playing with lately is the inPulse smartwatch. It can silently buzz when you get a new email and show a preview of your email. It's has an API that works with many Android and Blackberry phones, so you can program your own custom apps to do things like move forward in a PowerPoint presentation or show stock quotes. It's pretty geeky, but in a very space-age way. I can see a lot of people wearing watches like this in a few years.

Vision is not an image fully formed. Vision is knowing where to look without necessarily knowing what to look for. Vision is the ability to see the trail of breadcrumbs, and the strength and conviction necessary to follow that trail despite not knowing where it leads.

Sorry, but what does it matter? What's important? Why should I give a damn?

I don't like that people who aren't by friends are sending posts directly to me (which show up in my email inbox). How can I turn that off without turning off email for posts sent to me by my friends?

OM SHREE MANGLAY NAMAH:
 
 
To,
Mr. Prime Minister and all ministers and all the channel's editor and  all philanthropists and members of the leading organizations fighting corruption and all the citizens of the country and owner of newspapers and Editors and journalists to e - mail by sending help to fight corruption humble appeal to all kinds of economic and helped define my being.
Respected Sir,
Subject:
1.      Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev may help fight corruption in the country but are unable to Because he was ten years of art are seeking money from overseas transactions The funds that were not possible because the account will be closed.
2.      Anna Hazare Ombudsman is seeking to make it happen, because currently the C.R.P.C.-Under Section 197 governmental peon and prosecution of officials are asking the government if the government does not allow. So.......................... 197 finishes will solve the problem.
3.      Any citizen of the country's corruption case against the law I will make that relationship so you and we put together a case to court to get them punished.
4.      At present most of the Indian judiciary and judges taking bribes directly from all corruption to murder and rape sentenced to pay over money. Surrey Police and government officials corrupted open them to judge the judges, police protection and other officials in my present he did not want to hear the case at present , 2-3 examples are here.
5.      Now a few days ago, former Karnataka chief minister Janardhan Reddy to Rs 5 Crore mining scam High Court judge granted bail. But his publication did not have in any channels or newspapers. The judges are not afraid of anything.
6.      M. P. A journalist's murder conviction in default of the bribe was given, the sentence ADJ Jagdish Bheti the punishment given to 65 thousand. High Court judge G.J. Chitre and R.D. Shukla taking bribes in the 1-1 million bails and later acquitted by the Supreme Court punished.
7.      Court sentenced to 7 years in Ujjain Chita DON but appeal court sentenced 14 years after cutting down the whole thread and did not leave anyone Maine Chief Justice High Court Jabalpur sent a letter to the petition, but he sent Indore. Nothing happened after 8-10 months of double bench Indore WP No. 8886/11 canceled my petition and the petition dismissed Chita Don has won the 1 million compensation. Here is the angle by saying that you are seeking compensation in order to 10/02/2012, a corrupt our judicial system, who dismissed the petition because she had to give my tired, not compensation. In fact, the 5 lacks to 5 million should be compensated and the guilty deserves to be punished it should be dismissed 20-20 years
8.      Corruption also is punishable by 20-20 years and an officer's wife and children on an adult prosecuted year do not bail year. And a fine of 25 lacks to 25 million but save them 1 or 2 years imprisonment for taking bribes to Judges And fine the penalty of 5 to 10 thousand. This corruption will not disappear, only 2 cases (Dewas MP, and Indore) to my knowledge corruption was sentenced to 5-5 years and 50-80 lacks the fine but the corrupt High Court granted bail in 7-8 days, High Court to fight the case in small 1 to 2 years then they did not bail them the future is
9.      I Collector, SP, TI And many other officials made ​​the case in the trial of more than 2,000 written complaints bribe officials are more than 2 lacks. The result is Zero because the judges are corrupt; they do not want to take any action against officers. Who am I fighting against corruption since 1985, but I have no friends and no help.
10.  Anna Hazare lives the life as to be essentially unchanged Brianne more police officers and bribe him to put me on trial. Hey all of you to pray so I e - mail is sent to help me define and punish corrupted I can get. Anna Hazare's not going to fight him to corrupt the whole country. Then the spell will not do the movement. Who wrote asking for help just after 9 Paragraph written before 9 Paragraph ask for help?
Date 06-07-2012
Note. Email does not reply to emails because I'm fighting alone, with no time to see opening emails Hey no knowledge of English. Mobile to call anyone anywhere I'm willing to go and free legal help.

Scrolling is broken in Google+. Pressing the spacebar scrolls a full page, but the top of the page is covered by a fixed position bar, meaning that less than a full page of content is ever visible, so a full page scroll causes a couple of lines of text to go from off the bottom of the page to below the top bar (and therefore never visible unless I use the arrow keys to go back up a bit)

Space still doesn't page for me; they seem to have disabled that a while ago. Page Down behaviour is still odd too on this old Firefox. Viewing just this post I start at the top, the first line of Paul Lindner's comment is at the bottom, and I Page Down. Most of the top bars vanish leaving the new thick white one. I can see half of Paul's line so Firefox's default overlap is almost but not quite covered by G+'s bar.

If I now type Cursor Up once, the comments scroll a little but the top black bar and the search bar re-appear covering yet more of the comments so I've less context than before.

It seems to depend where the input focus is at the start. If it's in the search box then Page Down works but Cursor Up/Down immediately afterwards, the search box having disappeared, don't.
