Google Adds Gmail Feature Undo Send
Google added a new experimental feature to Gmail yesterday, allowing users to recall e-mail they have sent by mistake. The feature can grab messages before they are delivered and is being rolled out to users worldwide.

Adding to Gmail's features destined to save you from embarrassment, Undo Send lets you abort the delivery of any Gmail message within moments of sending it. Undo Send can be activated from the Settings/Labs tab in Gmail.

Once the feature is activated, a new 'Undo' link will appear next to every sent e-mail confirmation. When clicked, 'Undo' will take you back to the composing window and confirm the retrieval of the e-mail.

However, 'Undo Send' doesn't really recall a message that has been already sent. The feature only holds e-mails in a queue for five seconds, giving you time for second thoughts -- though some already argue that this is not long enough.
Other ways not to send a message in Gmail include previous Labs features such as the Forgotten Attachment Detector (pinging the lack of an attachment if it was mentioned in the body) and Mail Googles (which asks you to answer simple math problems before sending e-mails).

Google also added on Wednesday four new Labs extensions that allow users to preview in their e-mail content from YouTube, Flickr, Picasa and Yelp.
COOL NA :wink:

The Google OS Is Coming by Year's End
It's not news that Microsoft will get Windows 7 out as fast as possible this year, a cleaned-up, lightweight version than vista. What is news is that Google will have its own contender for desktop operating system king: Android.
Do you know Google is on with its own OS. After proving mortal competitor in search engine,browser,social networking,documents,maps etc google is gonna prove their metal in OS.
Android, you ask? What would a Linux-based phone operating system be doing on the desktop? It took them (Matthäus Krzykowski and Daniel Hartmann, founders of start-up Mobile-facts) about four hours to compile Android for an Asus' Eee PC 1000H. Then, they reported on, "we got the netbook fully up and running on it, with nearly all of the necessary hardware you'd want -- including graphics, sound and wireless card for Internet."
In other words, Android is already a desktop operating system.
As for applications, the wide array of open-source software that all Linux distributions share would be available, but so would Google's Chrome Web browser and its wealth of Web-based applications. You can bet those are going to work very well with Android/Chrome.
I'm sure Asus won't be alone in adopting Android. According to Barclays Capital analyst Israel Hernandez, notebooks are the one bright spot in the PC market. Android just makes them cheaper and more profitable.
Wait till the year end when we'll see not only Asus selling Android-based notebooks, but at least a half-dozen other vendors doing so as well.
