Gmail is really famous among users of all the email clients available on the web. Initially getting popular because of it’s huge storage space and it’s reliability, it has now evolved to a rather simple but cool and extensible all inclusive interface that we have all got used to. As far as storage space is concerned several other email providers are competing, but still Google doesn’t stop and keeps on increasing the storage space provided while also allowing users to buy even more online storage space. So why not use this online storage space for things other than email only, and use it externally from a script or from our computer.
The external use of Google Storage Space is not a new idea and there are several different approaches and uses of that space. Here we will present you with the best tools, so far, that let you use your Gmail account space as your external storage location. You will be able to download (or should I say copy) attachments from your Gmail account to your computer just as you would do from a drive on your computer. You can also use this space to upload content directly from your computer and save it online in your Gmail account. Or even setup a gallery based on the photos stored in your Gmail and listen to music based on the media files stored ….

When you think of “Google”, the word “search” comes to mind, but if you think a little more the word “monopoly” seems to be there somewhere. Google grows to an online giant and there are always those who fear that it is getting too powerful so far ahead than any other that is becoming an online search/advertising monopoly. Still, i will not be discussing any of these fears on this post. I will only be presenting a new way of combining the words “Google” and “Monopoly” in an online version of the popular board game. Monopoly is getting online as a game of property empire building on an unimaginable scale in a bid to uncover the greatest property magnate the world has ever known.

HTC Hero just like most mobile devices these days are limited with restricted user rights, not allowing the user full administration, mostly for the protection of the device itself and the installed software (operating system, applications, etc.) This is absolutely normal and most users won’t even notice it, since the average user simply wants to be able to utilize his mobile device for common tasks. Still, It seems these days that many mobile phone owners are learning just how valuable gaining root access on their phone can be. Rooting your phone is the difference between having the same phone others have and having a phone that allows you to change various aspects such as icon, fonts and many more. Gaining root access also opens the ability to have homebrew apps and other utilities that usually prove more useful than those commonly available. For others it is knowing that you have all the control.
