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….
+Vic Gundotra

Tango Messenger app review (android)

Tango pretty old app for video call and thats gives more space to create new friends all over the world. If are in the park of sone where u can discover nerby tangi users and chat with them. While using send so many reports to tango suddenly app closes. Personally i dont like the colour pretty hard to see the dark orange colour for long.  But about the features much better video  audio, sharing, chatting, games, free phone calls and news feed. Some times when i m checking with someones news feed they keep promoting the games thats not ok. Video calls not ok with mobile data connection even with wifi sometimes can crash. Voice calls also same. When i m making new friends other countries i asked theirs opnions about the app most of them said they are happy with this app. Now checked with google play review one long time tango user (about 4.5 years) he mentioned about the app is earlier days tango video call quality is awesome when new versions comes not ok at all.  Another new tango user said that app pulling more data and heavey to run same thing happens to samsung galaxy s4 user also. Hipanda can give 2.5/5. But if u like this app go head with this.

Google Says No to CynogenMod

cyanogenmod-9

Google asked to remove cyanogenMod from google play. Because that’s the famous alternative rom for  Android. Cyanogen raised $7 million from Benchmark Capital back in September to turn its geek-beloved aftermarket version of Android into a mainstream flavor of the platform – with the ultimate aim of using an Android variant to compete with standard Android (and iOS) for consumers’ attention.

CynogenMod Blog Mentions  Cyanogen said Google’s Play support team had contacted it to ask it to remove the app, citing violations of Play’s developer terms – warning that if the app wasn’t voluntarily removed it would be forcibly ejected.

What ever happens Google Can’t stop the cyanogenMod. Google ask to take off only cyanogenMod but there are so many mods are available in the tech world.

Google I/O Keynote-Android Studios

GDL IO logo

Android_Studios_by_alphawolf0019

If Google‘s  I/O conference isn’t enough to draw more developers to its services, the company’s Android Studio — a free integrated development environment that makes Android programming easier — may do the trick.

Android Studio comes with features such as an advanced code editor, a “smoother and richer” graphical user interface, and greater customization for complex configurations.

Google has also made it easier to add other Google services through Android Studios. For example, developers can now add Google Cloud Messaging or a translation plug-in to help localize their apps’ language.

Android Studios is currently in the hands of testers and early adopters. For all other developers, Google will continue to support Eclipse as its primary platform for development.

With device we can check our app with lots of  different  devices and resolutions. With this app Google makes the Android More faster and smart no need hard code any more. we can make our apps in several languages.
