Gmail Gets Autocomplete Search Functions

Daniel Ionescu, PC World

Apr 3, 2009 4:55 pm

Google has added suggestive search to Gmail, five years after the service was launched. The new Search Autocomplete feature gives users suggestions as they type in the search box. The function returns results such as contact names and also allows users to search through chats or attachments.

Gmail users should be now able to turn on the Search Autocomplete feature from the Labs tab under Gmail Settings. After you type a couple of letters in the search box, results suggestions will show up, just like in Google Suggest. The feature will deliver contact names first in the results.

You can also specifically search with advanced search operators in certain places of your Gmail account. Users will get suggestive results from their docs, photos orGtalk chats. Searching through attachments should be a breeze as well, as users can select what kind of attachments they want the search results to deliver.

Happy Birthday Gmail

Gmail is five years old today (but still in beta stage). When the service launched in 2004 it was revolutionary. Gmail allowed users to store 1GB worth of e-mail, luring millions of users -- in comparison to the 5 to 10MB other typical webmail providers offered at the time. Gmail now offers more than 7GB of storage space.

But in the last five years Gmail has advanced a lot, changing the way we interact with our e-mail account. Google added to Gmail chat and video chatSMStasks,widgetsoffline access and undo send next to some otherless-serious experimental features. Maybe after all these years, Gmail could grow up and lose the 'beta' tag -- just a suggestion.

What is 3G? Does India need it?

Current WAP speed in India is nothing great but it has improved. I understand from my friends who are experts in telecom that you cannot improve the speed performance of WAP any further on a GSM network (which is 2G). I am told only 3G can improve things. So what is 3G?


Ex-Telecom Minister Dayanadi Maran was in the verge of releasing the 3G guidelines in India but he was shown the door. After the new Telecom Minister took over there was some talk about India going with 2.5G, which enables high-speed data transfer over upgraded existing 2G networks.

The GSM and CDMA networks are classed as second generation while the defunct analogue network was the first of the mobile network generations.

3G, or third generation, is the generic term used for the next generation of mobile communications systems. The new systems will enhance the services available today and offer multimedia and internet access and the ability to view video footage.

With a 3G phone and access to the 3G network you can send and receive video calls, watch live TV, access the internet, receive emails and download music tracks, as well as the usual voice call and messaging services found on a mobile phone.

Technically, the main difference between 3G and 2G networks is how quickly data can be sent and received. 3G networks can send data up to 40 times the rates of earlier digital networks, which means that in addition to audio, graphics and text, 3G customers can also send and receive video content, in 3G coverage areas. They provide service at 5-10 Mb per second.

Upgrading to 3G will be an expensive affair for all telcos. All telco hardware vendors would have another reason to drool in India!

While we are still not sure when India will get 3G, the technology has already moved on to “beyond 3G” or “4G”. A 4G system will be able to provide a comprehensive IP solution where voice, data and streamed multimedia can be given to users on an “Anytime, Anywhere” basis, and at higher data rates than previous generations.

For any telco to offer 3G the government has to allocate the spectrum. Allocation of spectrum is becoming a mess but ultimately it will be solved (after all it cannot be more complex than pleasing the Left in the govt!!).

I personally believe mobile users in India will have a far better experience after 3G becomes a reality.
