Usually in Gmail service,the newest emails are displayed at the top of the inbox which is then followed by the older correspondence. This so called "conversation view" used to frustrate or confuse many Gmail users. Even this kinda system is seen in many email services. Due to this, there were huge number of complaints suggesting Google to revise their Gmail system so that they can disable the "conversation view" and unravel their emails.
Google Inc. has now given people more control on how their inboxes are organized. On Wednesday, this new option was announced which will allow users to organize their inboxes according to their preference. If an user wants his inbox to be arranged according to the chronological order, he can choose the option accordingly or if he wants his e-mails to be threaded together as part of the same e-mail conversation, he can choose accordingly.
In the month end of July, Gmail ended with nearly 186 million worldwide users which is about 22% increase in users when compared to the same time a year ago. On the other hand Microsoft's Windows Live Hotmail touched nearly 346 million users worldwide and Yahoo's e-mail touched 202 million users. But Gmail has gained a rapid growth when compared to the other two e-mail services.
Say, you have bought an nice bungalow and you are told that there is an secret rooftop deck in it but you have to pay extra to access it. Intel Corp. which is the world's biggest manufacturer of personal computer processors has now come up with the same kinda proposition to their costumers.

When costumers buy this product, they can unlock its full power by paying some extra money. Intel Corp. says that this offer will definitely help the people who bought an inexpensive Personal Computers to upgrade their systems through Internet in a very economical manner. This is done because they want to give a very good flexibility to their customers so that they can upgrade their systems without replacing the hardware components.
The main problem with this program is not the costumers, its the PC makers who may not like this because they will be in loss as the customers start upgrading their PC's without replacing the hardware. First Intel has to compromise and please the PC makers so that this program becomes successful and earn some extra revenue.

Initially, this additional security measure will be applicable only to government agencies and companies which has be subscribed to the Google services that provides e-mail system and other office applications. This additional security is also applicable to some schools which relies on Google to run their e-mail system.
The free Gmail service that is been provided by company does not come under this additional security for now. But Google is working on the security codes part for the free Gmail service which will become a part of the login process and it will be introduced after few months making the entire Google services to be more secure and making very difficult to hack the system.
According to me this additional security will not be a big deal for the hackers. Only thing is it will be a bit tougher to hack the system.

This latest gadget from the Apple can switch between a wrist watch and an iPod which can play users audio playlist as well as videos. There is a button which helps in switching the screens from the time screen to player screen. I doubt on the battery backup as the clock will be continuously running and in parallel the songs are played. Definitely the geek fantasy or the Apple lovers will go for this gadget without fail. It could have been even better if they had implemented bluetooth technology instead of plug-in earphones flopping around.
