Google plus and Vic Gundotra


Couple of days before we seen lots of masgs and blog posts about Vic (father of google +) signing off from google. Viv mention about leaving  g+ profile. Most of top blogger mentions(it can be rumours) vic moves to fb whats app division, google normally transfer the teams internally so vic not intrested about it and moving google. Vic is the person who brought up google plus from nothing to top five social media site. And then at once he leaving google means there can be some issues between inside teams. You can check the Vic’s google + post about leaving google.

And Then

Last month, my wife’s uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary “How are you” or “What’s going on”, her dad always opened the conversation with “And then?” Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more “and thens”. I cried. 

Since then I’ve thought a lot about how similar this is to our life’s endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become “and thens” as we move on to the next. 

Today I’m announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don’t believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I’m overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry’s encouragement and support.

I’m also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn’t tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I’ve met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don’t even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn’t exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An “and then”. I am excited about what’s next. But this isn’t the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then….

These are the special features in the Facebook Messenger, most of the exited with this and its allowed to share the images,  And now Facebook worked with very creative Sticker so we can share our expressions with our loved once. Without a word explaining about something now possible with Facebook Messenger. Now Facebook Messenger in a good standard to Compete with IOS, Android, and Windows Messengers. Especially now days we are sending less SMS’s instead of that we started to use free messengers.  But to Facebook is not too hard to promote their messenger because according to the 2013 FB Report FB got 1.15 billion so now it more, Facebook can move the game is bit easy.

WiFi is open in airplane FAA. Confirmed


Federal Aviation Administration,
(faa) mentioned that there is no harm when passengers connected via WiFi. So in future we all gonna connected via WiFi will flying in the plane. But still there is a restriction for calling via mobile and mobile data packages. So we can expect these changes in future. For now connecting via WiFi while flying is big thing.

The FAA will still have final say over what is and isn’t acceptable regarding gadget use, but the consensus seems to be that mobile devices during all phases of flight pose no imminent threat. If everything goes through, the rules could change as early as next year.

Last Symbian OS Phone from Nokia 808


Now time to say Goodbye to Symbian OS, the last phone which Nokia Planning to release Pureview 808. After this summer we won’t able to get any Symbian OS phones in the market.  Nokia Wanted to Completely stop shipping.  Nokia Might plan to promote Windows mobile to Advance range phone and for lower range phone they got their new asha OS .  We are not sure how much far they can push these OS. But now days Nokia wanted to move fwd.  lets wait for some time and see how it gonna work. from some of popular phone sites blogged that Nokia planing to stop Shipping Symbian OS from this summer. I m personally Not recommending Symbian OS phone because after publishing we won’t get any update or trouble shots and Apps too. for now We might get all the existing apps advanced and new updates might stop by up coming days. So better to switching to iPhone or Android Phones or else if you wanted to switch with Nokia Better go with windows OS.

iOS 7 with Cool Fearures WWDC2013

screen-shot-2013-04-29-at-1-09-48-pm ios-7-logo

Apple and iOS7 in trending in most popular social media sites, Lets see whats the new features with iOS7. This time apple Developer team tried completely new layout, New look. Seem nice. In WWDC 2013 Mac Made Multitasking, Control Center, Notifications Center, iTunes Radio, Air Drop upgraded to new versions.

Other little tidbits coming across the Web include a live clock icon which reflects the current time, a revamped Spotlight that can be accessed by tugging down on the home screen, and Flickr and Vimeo integration. It’s unclear exactly how those last two will work, especially with Apple putting a premium on its own iCloud services, but users will presumably be able to share through those platforms seamlessly.


iOS Do Not Disturb feature you can schedule to block calls and messages from all numbers except certain favorites or groups.

Getting woken up or interrupted by unwanted communication can feel like a deep invasion of privacy, and make people scared or angry every time their phone buzzes. It lets people fight back against drunk dials from old boyfriends or girlfriends, creepy strangers, and disrespectful marketers breaking their workflow.

With any luck, Apple will evolve the feature with more granularity over time. Putting communication devices in our pockets that anyone can reach with the right string of digits forced us to surrender control of our attention. Call and text blocking for iOS will put that control back in the hands of millions of people.
