The Interconnected World of Tech Companies

The “tech world” is really more of a “tech family.” Between digital giants’ appetites for acquisitions and the tendency of their ex-employees to start new companies, it’s easy to see how nearly every blip in the ecosystem is closely related.
We’ve mapped just a few of these family ties between “Xooglers,” the “PayPal Mafia”, “Softies” and the many other tech connectors who have yet to be nicknamed.
Our guess is that if you gathered a handful of tech veterans in a room, you could keep the tech connection game going forever. So while this graphic is hardly exhaustive, we’ll keep it going in the comments — feel free to add connections to the list!.

Use Your GMAIL without Internet Connection

Gmail Offline

Now You can Use Your Gmail, Calendar and Docs without an internet connection by just installing a plugin in your Chrome.

The great thing about web apps is that you can access all of your information on the go, and we’ve introduced ways to use Google Apps on a variety of devices like mobile phones and tablets. But it’s inevitable that you’ll occasionally find yourself in situations when you don’t have an Internet connection, like planes, trains and carpools. When we announced Chrome-books at Google I/O 2011, we talked about bringing offline access to our web apps, and now we’re taking our first steps in that direction. Gmail offline will be available today, and offline for Google Calendar and Google Docs will be rolling out over the next week, starting today.

Gmail Offline is a Chrome Web Store app that’s intended for situations when you need to read, respond to, organize and archive email without an internet connection. This HTML5-powered app is based on the Gmail web app for tablets, which was built to function with or without web access. After you install the Gmail Offline app from the Chrome Web Store, you can continue using Gmail when you lose your connection by clicking the Gmail Offline icon on Chrome’s “new tab” page.
offline Gmail on Chrome

Calendar and Google Docs let you seamlessly transition between on- and offline modes. When you’re offline in Google Calendar, you can view events from your calendars and RSVP to appointments. With Google Docs you can view documents and spreadsheets when you don’t have a connection. Offline editing isn’t ready yet, but we know it’s important to many of you, and we’re working hard to make it a reality. To get started using Google Calendar or Google Docs offline, just click the gear icon at the top right corner of the web app and select the option for offline access. 

IT administrators can deploy Chrome Web Store apps to users en masse by setting uporganizational policies for Chrome.

Today’s world doesn’t slow down when you’re offline and it’s a great feeling to be productive from anywhere, on any device, at any time. We’re pushing the boundaries of modern browsers to make this possible, and while we hope that many users will already find today’s offline functionality useful, this is only the beginning. Support for offline document editing and customizing the amount of email to be synchronized will be coming in the future. We also look forward to making offline access more widely available when other browsers support advanced functionality (likebackground pages).


Gmail on Ipad
When the iPhone and Android devices came out, we started building for advanced mobile browsers and optimizing the Gmail interface for touchscreens, culminating in the Gmail for mobileHTML5 web app. As portable devices continue to evolve, we're excited about the upcoming wave of tablet computers and the possibilities they bring. 

With today's release of the iPad, we're launching an experimental two-pane user interface to take advantage of its large touchscreen and tablet form factor. Building upon the Gmail for mobile web app, this new interface displays your conversations on the left and your messages on the right hand side. 
All the features of the Gmail web app that you're used to, such as offline access and aggressive caching to reduce latency, are present in the iPad version. Tablet devices are still very new, so expect changes as we continue to optimize for this new format. We'd like to hear any ideas you may have on how we can make Gmail better for the iPad so don't hesitate to let us know via the 'Send feedback' link at the bottom of your inbox on iPad. 

To try out Gmail out on the iPad, just go to in Safari. For quick access, try creating ahomescreen link. Please note that the new interface is only available in US English for now. You can always access Gmail through the native Mail application using IMAP as well.

Google Plus started verification badge program

Verification Badge
Google rolled out a new verification badge program Saturday, making it so celebrities, public figures and those who have amassed vast numbers of people in their circles can verify their identities with a check mark and a small banner that rolls out next to their names.

According to a Google+ post from Google+ team member Wen-Ai Yu, “We’re working on expanding this to more folks.” As you can see in the video, she doesn’t describe exactly how these verifications work.

The program, along with Google‘s insistence that user accounts be opened under a real name, aims to assure people that “the person you’re adding to a circle is really who they claim to be.”

Google’s Wen-Ai Yu explains:

Google + Hangouts now with YouTube:

YouTube Linking with Google+

Google has quietly rolled out yet another feature of its Google+ social network: Click on the Share button under any YouTube video to reveal an icon that suggests watching the video with friends in a Google+ hangout.
Google didn’t formally announce this new feature, instead revealing it via product manager Brian Glick on — where else — Google+, where he casually mentioned it like so:
"You can now start a Google+ Hangout with a YouTube video, directly from YouTube. Watch with your friends. :)"
"Just click on “Share” underneath any video, and then click on “Start a Google+ Hangout” in the bottom right-hand corner."
A few weeks ago, YouTube Live product manager Brandon Badge quietly mentioned the upcoming ability to enable hangouts from YouTube with live streaming video, and this must be the first stage of that initiative.
As we mentioned then, it’s been possible to watch videos with friends since the beginning of Google+, through a more complicated manual process that must be initiated in Google+. But this new button allowing you to initiate hangouts from YouTube with a couple of clicks makes it considerably easier.
Google Buys Motorola with $12 billion Deal ...
Taiwanese Next Media Animation (NMA), creators of computer-animated reenactments of news events, released a new video on Tuesday depicting the news of Google’s $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola.
The video depicts Apple CEO Steve Jobs as Darth Vader and features Google co-founders riding a one-trick pony while “desperately searching for a second act.”
NMA is often on the ball with big tech news, having also animated Google’s woes with privacy and net neutrality last August, Paul Ceglia’s recent claim that he owns a large stake in Facebook and Cheezburger Network’s $30 million round of funding in January.

Top 5 Web Browsers in Competition

Web browsers have created a great demand among the internet users. Every internet user wants to use the best browser which has high speed, privacy, security and user friendly features. Google Chrome and Mozilla have brought down Microsoft's Internet Explorer when it comes to percentage of usage. For past 5 years, IE has constantly been losing its demand among the internet users as other browsers provide more features, security, speed and compatibility. Yes, the browser war is heating up again and has become more vigorous today.

1. Mozilla Firefox:

Firefox remains to be the favorite browser among the web users. It is a free and open source web browser. This browser provides amenities like tabbed browsing, private browsing, live bookmarking, geolocation browsing, add on manager, download manager and advanced search which most of the browsers do not provide. This browser runs on various operating systems like Windows, Linux and Mac. Its usage tops in the countries like Germany and Poland.

2. Google chrome:

The browser developed by Google that uses WebKit layout engine is the third most popular web browser in the world. In UK, Chrome has pulled down Mozilla and is the second best browser when it comes to usage. The best browser for slow computers, Google chrome was introduced in beta version at the beginning which accelerated its popularity and people find it easy to use when it comes to browsing and downloading.

3. Internet explorer:

This graphical web browser developed by Microsoft tops the list when it comes to usage among people. The browser is fast losing its popularity when it comes to user demand as the smart users have already switched off to other browsers like Firefox and Chrome. However, it's known for its better performance even in a weak hardware but when it comes to security features, they have been a failure.  
4. Opera:

 Opera is ranked the 4th best browser by the people in Ukraine for usage as they have great security features. This provides the highest privacy when compared to other browsers.

5. Safari:

Safari is a web browser developed by Apple Inc. and included with the Mac OS X and iOS operating systems. First released as a public beta on January 7, 2003 on the company's Mac OS X operating system, it became Apple's default browser beginning with Mac OS X v10.3 "Panther".It is Ranked 5th.

Google Plus will thump Twitter ,Linkedin & Facebook

Google Plus
Google+ Market Research
Google+ Inc's new social-networking service may grow to claim 22 per cent of online US adults in a year, passing Twitter Inc and LinkedIn Corp. to be the second- most-used social site after Facebook Inc, a survey found.

Google+ has signed up 13 per cent of US adults and will add 9 percent over the next year, according to the survey from Bloomberg/YouGov. In the same period, Facebook will lose about 2 percentage points

of US adults to keep 69 per cent of that population, while Twitter and LinkedIn continue to grow their portion of users.

Started in late June, Google+ is growing faster than Facebook and MySpace Inc. did in their early days. The service, which lets people connect with and manage groups of friends on a website, gained about 25 million users worldwide in less than a month, estimates market researcher ComScore Inc Facebook has more than 750 million active users.

"Google+ is tracing a path similar to Facebook's initial growth -- building excitement in a core group of early adopters," said Michael Nardis, head of YouGov investment products, in a statement about the survey.

Katie Watson, a spokeswoman for Mountain View, California- based Google, declined to comment. Jonathan Thaw, a spokesman for Facebook, and Matt Graves, a spokesman for Twitter, also declined to comment.

Bloomberg and London-based market researcher YouGov Plc polled 1,003 online US residents 18 and older from July 29 to August 2 for the survey.

Twitter, LinkedIn Grow
The results showed Twitter will add almost 3 percentage points of US adults online over the next year to claim 20 per cent of the population. LinkedIn will also have signed up 20 per cent of those people, after gaining almost 2 percentage points within the year, the survey found.

Among survey respondents who had signed up for Google+, 45 per cent said they read content on the site every day, compared with Facebook's 62 per cent of users. Twitter has 42 per cent of its users return daily, while LinkedIn has 8 per cent.

Google+ usage is likely to take away from the time people spend on Facebook, the survey found. Some 30 per cent of people who use both services said they plan to reduce the amount of time they spend on Facebook.

Some 31 per cent of Google+ users polled said they have already abandoned their accounts or not written any posts yet on the site.

Google's Android Platform becomes No. 1 Smartphone OS

Google's Android
Google's Android platform has taken almost 50 per cent of the global smartphone market, dominating in the Asia-Pacific region, research firm Canalys said

Android, which Google acquired in 2005 and launched on phones in 2008, is used by almost all the major phone makers including HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung.

It was the number one platform in 35 of the 56 countries Canalys tracks, resulting in a market share of 48 per cent, the research firm said.

By comparison, Apple, which shipped 20.3 million iPhones, is a distant second with a market share of 19 per cent but it overtook ailing Finnish handset maker Nokia as the world's largest individual smartphone vendor.

Samsung also overtook Nokia but Canalys said the South Korean handset maker could have done better.

"Samsung has failed to fully capitalize on Nokia's weakened state around the world, as the Finnish company rides out a challenging transitional period," Canalys analyst Chris Jones said.

"It's the best placed vendor to grow at Nokia's expense, taking advantage of its global scale and channel reach, but it hasn't yet done enough to capitalize on this, particularly in emerging markets."

Samsung, which sells Android smartphones as well as its own Bada branded devices, shipped some 17 million devices, a rise of 421 per cent versus a year ago.

Android's success however comes with a headache for Google and its vendors. Its Android mobile software has attracted a lawsuit from Oracle, while handset makers using the software have also been sued by both Apple and Microsoft, which claims an existing, perpetual license to Nortel patents.

Microsoft, whose own presence in the smartphone market is a mere 1 percent, receives money from deals reached with some Android handset makers but is pressing for more.

Last month, Apple, Microsoft and Blackberry maker RIM teamed up with three other companies to outbid Google at an auction for Nortel's wireless patents, which could result in big licensing fees for Google. That move may run into legal obstacles.

The Wall Street Journal, quoting people familiar with the matter, reported that the US Department of Justice is intensifying an investigation into whether Apple, Microsoft and Research in Motion could use the recently acquired trove of patents to unfairly hobble competing smartphones using Google's Android software.

Unfazed by its failure to acquire the Nortel patents, Google, which has been hampered by a lack of intellectual property in wireless telephony, is said to have held talks about buying US wireless chip technology company InterDigital to boost its patent portfolio.

InterDigital, which has a market value of $3.11 billion and 2010 revenues of $395 million, said earlier this week its board was evaluating strategic alternatives, including a possible sale of the company or of its patents.

12 Giant Killer Feature of Google Plus

You may have started using Google+, but did you know that you could edit photos in it? Integrate it with other social networks? Or video Chat in HD? Like with any new service, there are a lot of hidden features and lesser-known tricks in Google+.
1. If you have commented on a  post, but do not want  notifications of the follow-up comments coming to your inbox, there is a simple way out. Go to the original post and on the right side you will see a drop down arrow. Click on the arrow and select 'mute conversation'. You can choose to shut off all notifications from Google+ settings as well.

2. If you do not want others to see the people in your Circles, go to your profile page and click on ‘edit profile’. On the left side, you will see a small grey disc just above the photographs of your Circle members. Click on the disc and in the box that opens, you can choose the visibillity of your circle members.

3. You can setup Google+ to send notifications to your mobile phone as well.

On the page that opens, go to ‘delivery preferences’ and under your email address you’ll see the option to add a mobile number to receive push notifications. Enter your phone number and Google will first send you a verification code. After verification, you will start receiving free notifications on your phone by sms.

4. By default, video chat in Google+ uses standard definition video, but if your webcam supports it, you can enable HD video support. First, sign in to chat, hover the mouse cursor over the chat section on the Google+ page, click on the small triangle that appears and then click on settings. Here, you'll see a checkbox to enable HD video chat.

5. There is a built-in basic photo editor in Google+ as well. Select
any of the photos uploaded to your profile and double click on it to edit. It will open the image in a full page — click on the 'actions' box below the image and here you can rotate the photos or click on edit to apply a variety of basic effects and tune-ups.

6. The Circle feature can be used to save various shared links and notes if you want to read them later. Go to Circles, create a new Circle, name it whatever you want (like ‘Read Later’) and do not add anyone in it (Google calls it an Empty Circle).

Now, whatever you want to read later, share it on your Google+ status with only this empty Circle that you have created. It will work as your online repository for bookmarks, videos and any other thing you want to access later.

7. To add a faux banner to your Google+ profile page, you will need to do a bit of photo cropping and resizing using an image editing program. Paste a photo into a template, 750 pixels wide and 150 pixels high and resize it to fit. Then, split this image into 5 smaller photos, each with a dimension of 150 x 150 pixels. Go to your profile page, click on 'edit profile' and upload the images in the order that you want.

8. To share your location with a person or a circle, first click the share button on the top right of the Google+ page, then click the 'add your location' button in the text box that pops up. You may have to click 'allow' if a webpage notification comes up. Once Google+ has determined your location, just add names to add them to the share list, or add a complete Circle.

9. Using Google Chrome with Google+ gives you a whole host of new things to play with, thanks to free extensions. For example, an extension called Helper for Google+ allows you to share your Google+ posts to Twitter, while an extension called Surplus integrates Google+ right into the browser. With it, you can post/share though a pop-up or get desktop notifications even if the Google+ webpage is not open.

10. Let's say you want to share a specific post with someone new to Google+ — the easiest way to do this would be to share a permalink (permanent link). To get a permalink for a specific post, simply click the time stamp in the post — and it will open in a new page. Copy this link to share with anyone over email or chat, even if they don't have a Google+ account.

11. Google+ allows you to post updates in a variety of styles. To post in bold, add an asterisk at the beginning and end of the word (i.e., * word *). To post in italics, add an underscore before the word and a plus sign after it (i.e., _ word +). To post with a strikethrough, add a dash before and after the word (i.e., - word -).

12. To add your various other social networking websites or contacts to your Google+ profile page, first go to Google+ settings by clicking on the gear icon in the top right of the page. Then click on ‘connected accounts’ and add the accounts here. For instance, to add your Facebook account, type

Awesome Google+ Features
Sharing posts becomes easier by sorting people into groups (or Circles). You start with three Circles — friends, family and acquaintances. You can add as many more as you want
Hangout allows you to video chat with upto 10 people at the same time. It automatically brings the person speaking into focus in a large window. Note that this feature requires a fast internet connection
Sparks is an integrated service that allows you to add topics to Google+ based on your interests. It can help ‘spark’ new and meaningful conversations with your Circles

Google Plus covering the social market

Google's latest offering ' Google Plus' is steadily gaining ground in the social networking space, so far dominated by Facebook , with the internet giant's social network attracting about 20 million visitors in the initial three weeks and nearly half of these visitors hailing from US and India .

According to estimates by research firm ComScore, Google Plus had 19.93 million unique visitors between June 29 and July 19 period.
Google Plus steadily gaining ground in social networking space

The top two countries in this estimate are the US and India. Of the 19.93 million visitors, 5.31 million were from the US and 2.85 million from India.

Another 0.87 million users came from the UK, 0.71 million from Germany and 0.50 million from France.

"I have never seen anything grow this quickly," vice president of industry analysis at ComScore Andrew Lipsman said.

Google Plus, launched on June 28, is Google's answer to rival Facebook.

It lets users post photos, messages, comments and other content from a selected groups of friends.

The service was started as a field trial and the project is by invitation only, which means people can join only if a current member invites them.

Eventually, Google plans to incorporate features of Google Plus in its other services, such as its YouTube video site.

Google CEO Larry Page had last week said that Google Plus had more than 10 million users.

Page said there are "more opportunities for Google today than ever before".

It will be some time before Google catches up with Facebook's scale of more than 750 million users. The other popular micro-blogging site Twitter has more than 200 million registered accounts.

Through 'Google Plus', the internet giant aims to garner a share in the lucrative social networking space that has so far been dominated by the Mark Zuckerberg led popular site.

The service has features like 'Circles', 'Sparks', 'Hangouts' and 'mobile'.

Through Circles, Google targets Facebook's features in which a user's information is shared by default with a large number of his or her friends including their work colleagues and acquaintances, rather than only their close personal friends.

Its "Huddle" feature lets users send text messages to several different people at once, known as group texting.

Search Engines like Google Vanishing Our Memory

Internet search engines like Google are changing the way our brains remember information, according to a new study that says readily available information online makes people easily forget facts since computers become their external memory ".

Researchers from Harvard University and Columbia University said Google and databases such as, serve as an external "memory, where information is stored collectively outside ourselves".

People are more likely to remember things they think they will not be able to find online and will have a harder time recalling information which they know they can easily access online, the study added.

"Since the advent of search engines, we are re-organising the way we remember things," Columbia University psychologist Betsy Sparrow said.

Our brains rely on the Internet for memory in much the same way they rely on the memory of a friend, family member or co-worker.

The research also found that people remembered where they stored their information or where to look for information on the internet better than they remembered the information itself.

In the paper titled "Google Effects on Memory: Consequences of Having Information at Our Fingertips," researchers conducted four experiments.

They gave students 40 statements, asking them to type the information on a computer.

Those who were told the information would be saved had a much harder time remembering the statements later than those who were told it would be erased.

Similarly, Columbia students were asked a series of questions and allowed to take notes.

The students who were told the information would be saved in one of six computer folders had a harder time remembering the information later than those who were told it would be erased.

About 60 Harvard students were asked to type trivia, such as "An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain," into computers, and were told either the information would be saved or erased.

People who believed the data would be saved were less likely to remember, according to the study published online by the journal Science.

In the last experiment, Columbia undergraduates were told the same information would be saved in files with names such as 'facts', 'data' and 'names'.

The students remembered the file names better than the information itself, the study said.

Google will soon launch Google+ or G+ to challenge rival Facebook

Google+ & Its Features
The Google (Developer's God) a search engine introduced Google+ also will popular as G+ social network for what it called 'real-life sharing'. To be available first by invitation only, Google said its social network will meet the most basic human needs to connect with with your friends,family & others.

To check Google+ visit it.

Want Interactive Tour..visit it..

You might have noticed your friends' mugshots popping up on your Gmail page of late and a black strip over the Google search page.And It will display first in your black strip like +You .

Google+  's Five Aspects.

  • Circles-You share different things with different people. So sharing the right stuff with the right people shouldn’t be a hassle. Circles makes it easy to put your friends from Saturday night in one circle, your parents in another, and your boss in a circle by himself - just like real life.
  • Hangouts-With Hangouts, the unplanned meet-up comes to the web for the first time. Let specific buddies (or entire circles) know you’re hanging out and then see who drops by for a face-to-face-to-face chat. Until teleportation arrives, it’s the next best thing.
  • Instant Upload-Taking photos is fun. Sharing photos is fun. Getting photos off your phone is pretty much the opposite of fun. With Instant Upload, your photos and videos upload themselves automatically, to a private album on Google+.  All you have to do is decide who to share them with.
  • Sparks-Tell Sparks what you’re into and it will send you stuff it thinks you’ll like, so when you’re free, there’s always something cool to watch, read, or share.
  • Huddle-Texting is great, but not when you’re trying to get six different people to decide on a movie. Huddle turns all those different conversations into one simple group chat, so everyone gets on the same page all at once. Your thumbs will thank you.
Aiming to take advantage of flaws in networking on Facebook, Google said, 'Today, the connections between people increasingly happen online. Yet the subtlety and substance of real-world interactions are lost in the rigidness of our online tools. In this basic, human way, online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it.''

Google said, 'We'd like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests. And so begins the Google+ project or G+''.

It would offer options of networking, including 'Circles' interface for adding friends and sharing 'what matters, with the people who matter most' and 'Hangouts' interface for group video chat.

'The debut of Google+ will test whether Google can overcome its past flops in social networking, like Buzz and Orkut, and deal with one of the most pressing challenges facing the company,'' said the New York Times.

'At stake is Google's status as the most popular entry point to the Web. When people post on Facebook, which is mostly off-limits to search engines, Google loses valuable information that could benefit its Web search, advertising and other products.''

But Google+ might be already too late, the paper said.

'In May, 180 million people visited Google sites, including YouTube, versus 157.2 million on Facebook, according to comScore. But Facebook users looked at 103 billion pages and spent an average of 375 minutes on the site, while Google users viewed 46.3 billion pages and spent 231 minutes.

'Advertisers pay close attention to those numbers, and to the fact that people increasingly turn to Facebook and other social sites like Twitter to ask questions they used to ask Google, like a recommendation for a restaurant or doctor, because they want more personalized answers,'' the New York Times said.

Indian Face behind Google+ -"Vic Gundotra, Google's senior vice president, engineering."

Gundotra, a former Microsoft veteran of Indian origin, led Google's efforts at social media, including Buzz. His Google+ profile says, "Fell in love with the power of software at age 11, and am still in love." The man behind the project stressed on the subtlety of relationships broken by rigid online tools, saying, "We aim to fix it." In his rollout blog, Gundotra took many digs at Facebook, "Today's online services turn friendship into fast food — wrapping everyone in 'friend' paper."

Send HTML Emails with Gmail and Google Docs

html gmail

All popular email programs – from web-based Gmail and Yahoo! Mail to desktop-based Microsoft Outlook to the mail app on your mobile phone – are now HTML (or rich-text) capable. Thus, your email messages can have custom fonts, inline images, lists, tables and other formatting similar to a web page.
But there’s one little problem - how do you write an HTML email?

The built-in WYSIWYG editors, like the one shown above, offer basic functions for formatting text but there are things you cannot do. For instance, how do you insert a 3x5 table inside a Gmail message? Can you right-align an image and wrap text around it similar to Word?

All this is easily possible in HTML but since your email program won’t let your compose a message directly in HTML, you’re stuck.

I have two easy solutions for this problem. The first is HTML Mail – here you can write an HTML message and send it yourself or anyone else with a click. The tool has a simple WYSIWYG editor but you can also switch to the code view and compose messages directly with HTML markup.

There’s another alternative that uses Google Docs to send HTML mails from your Gmail account itself. It works for both Google Apps and regular Google Accounts.

First make a copy of this Google Docs sheet and then choose Gmail –> HTML Mail to authorize the sheet to send mails from your email account. Once authorized, choose GMail –> HTML Mail again and now you should see a form for sending mails. Fill in the various fields, write any HTML code in the Message field and hit send.

You can use the previously mentioned WYSIWYG editor to generate the HTML markup and copy-paste that code into the Google Docs form. Also, if you wish to send the same message to multiple recipients at once, just separate their email addresses with commas.

The Google Docs option internally uses Google App scripts (class GmailApp) and you can find the full source code under Tools –> Script Editor. So the next time you want to create a more professional-looking email newsletter that has tables and other complex formatting, you know where to go.

Multiple Sign-in with Google Accounts with in same Browser

Google offers a handy multiple sign-in feature to help users toggle between their different accounts in the same browser without having to go through the sign-in / sign-out cycle. The facility is available in regular Google Accounts (that have address) as well as Google Apps accounts.

You may use multiple-signs with Gmail, Google Docs, Reader, Google Calendar, Web Search and couple of other Google products.

Firstly, Go to your account setting to on Multiple Sign-in Option,Just click below link......

A: How to Switch Between Different Google Accounts?

Let’s say are signed into two separate Gmail accounts, using multiple sign-in, and would like to switch from one account to another? How do you do this?

google multiple signin

The popular option is that you click your email address on the Google bar (see the screenshot above) and choose “Switch Account” from the drop-down menu to sign-in to your other Google / Gmail account. 

There’s however a second option as well that is a lot quicker. Go to your browser address bar and simply change a digit in the URL. When you use multiple sign-in, Google appends a number to your Gmail URLs and you just have to change this number to switch accounts. - Default account (n=0) - Second account (n=1) - Third account (n=2)

Alternatively, you may add the above URLs to your bookmarks bar to directly access the different mail account with the click without using that drop-down.

B: Set any Google Account as your Default Sign-in

When your open any of the Google websites that are enabled for multiple sign-in, like Gmail or Google Docs, it will automatically sign-in using your default account.

In some cases, this “default account” set by Google may not be your primary account and thus you have to switch to another account every time you open a Google service. Is there are workaround?

If you have multiple accounts, you can actually set the order on your own so that your main Google Accounts becomes the default (n=0), the next account you frequently use becomes the second account in the sign-in order  (n=1) and so on. Here’s how:

Step 1. Open to sign-out of all your Google accounts.

Step 2. Next go to and sign-in using the Google Account that you want to set as default.

Step 3. Now go to and sign-in to your other Google account. Repeat this step until you are signed-in to all your other Google accounts. 

That’s it. You have now set a custom signing order for all your Google Accounts and that should save you some time. See additional tips on using Gmail and Google Docs.

You Can No Longer Place Google Ads in an IFRAME

Google silently updated their AdSense Program Policies document last week and there’s one big change in the policy now - AdSense Publishers are no longer allowed to add Google ads to their web pages using IFRAMEs.

The updated policy document says:
"AdSense code may not be altered, nor may the standard behavior, targeting or delivery of ads be manipulated in any way that is not explicitly permitted by Google. This includes but is not limited to the following: clicking Google ads may not result in a new browser window being launched, nor may Google ads be placed in an IFRAME."
Google has always discouraged the use of IFRAMEs for serving AdSense ads but publishers were allowed to use them. For instance, a section of the AdSense support site still says:
"Our targeting technology is not optimised to serve ads within a separate IFRAME. If you placed the AdSense code in a separate IFRAME, your site may display less targeted ads or PSAs. For better results, please implement our ad code directly into the source of your web page. Once you make these changes, it may take up to 48 hours or more before relevant ads appear."
There are AdSense publishers who use the IFRAME option to embed Google Ads in the web pages, for various reasons, but with the new policy update, that implementation now clearly violates AdSense policies.

This however should not affect sites that display content using HTML frames. All you need to remember is that your AdSense ad code should be placed within the frame containing the content you wish to target with the ads.
