Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Nexus Prime Releasing this Oct?

The funny thing about Google is that they are going in all possible direction – maybe trying to become the ultimate brand which comes to your mind in any space – whether its search, Solar Power, Social Media or the latest Launching the next Google Branded Phone aka Nexus Prime.

Infact, I remember using a utility known as GMail Drive which would allow you to upload any kind of files on GMail using your File Explorer and Firefox had an extension which would create a FTP connection to Continue Reading

Happy 13th Bday Google :)

Well whoever said 13 is unlucky will definitely be proved wrong – Today is Google’s 13th Bday and I don’t think there is anything that’s going to go wrong with them 🙂

In Aug 1998, Continue Reading
