            It is the Google’s next milestone. It has started testing its “Full Page Preview Feature“. Definitely this feature will make browsing easier. It actually narrow down unwanted clicks.Google Testing The Full Page Previews. Caught Red Handed by Technology Reviewers It may be of a good use for users but according to major organizations and other internet revenue makers, it is going to be big head ache. Actually, few of the organizations and technology reviewers has already traced Google testing the full page preview feature. It is really a boost for them at this time to make some screenshots of them and blog them in their websites. Here are some of them which i have saved from websites like, The Next Web and Blogstorm.

    Here are some,

          As all you people know about the Google’s URL Shortening service, http://goo.gl , it actually shortens the long url and makes it compact so that it can be used for microblogging purpose. There are a lot of such services like, http://bit.ly http://tinyurl.com http://ow.ly and http://ht.ly and ya many more such services. But among these services, Google didn’t open its shortening service for all the public users. That is, Google used its goo.gl for its own products like FeedBurner, and so on…

        And today, the Search Engine Giant Google has opened its URL Shortening service for the public. That is users can go to http://goo.gl and can copy and paste their long urls and can convert them into shorter one and they can share it. And a point Google mentions is that, those urls will be shared with everyone on web…

    Here are some of the screenshots…

    Google Inc said users of Gmail will now be able to call telephones directly from their email, putting it in direct competition with Web calling service Skype and more traditional operators such as AT&T Inc and Verizon Communications

    Google To Allow Phone Calls From GMail !!!While Google had already offered computer-to-computer voice and video chat services, it said that starting on Wednesday it will now allow calls to home phones and mobile phones directly from Gmail for the first time.

    Google promised free calls to US and Canadian phones from Gmail for the rest of this year and said it would charge low rates for calls made to other countries. For example it said calls to Britain, France, Germany, China and Japan would be as low as 2 cents per minute.

    Analysts said the service would likely be a bigger competitive threat to services like Skype’s than to traditional phone companies, which have already been cutting their call prices in recent years in response to stiff competition.

    “This is a risk to Skype. It’s a competitor with a pretty good brand name,” said Hudson Square analyst Todd Rethemeier.
    Skype became popular by first offering free computer-to-computer voice and video services.

    Like Skype, Rethemeier said the Google service will likely be much more popular among US consumers making international calls, than among people calling friends inside the country.

    “Calling is so cheap already that I don’t think it will attract a huge amount of domestic calling. It could take some of the international market,” he said.

    Another analyst, Steve Clement from Pacific Crest, said that anybody who is tempted by Internet calling services has likely already disconnected their home phone. “The type of person who would use a service like that isn’t the type of customer who still has a landline,” Clement said.

    Google said making a call through its service works like a normal phone in that a user could click on the “call phone” option in their chat buddy list in Gmail and type in the number or enter a contact’s name.

    Calls that cost money will be charged from an online account that users can top up with a credit card, Google said. The service will not be available for making outgoing calls on cell phones because other Google apps already cater to that market, the company added.

    A firm owned by billionaire Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen sued Apple, Facebook, Google, YouTube, and seven other companies, charging them with infringing patents filed more than a decade ago.
    Google and Facebook blasted the lawsuit as “unfortunate” and “without merit.”
    The complaint, filed Friday morning in a Seattle federal court, named AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Staples, Yahoo and Google’s YouTube.
    AOL, Apple, Google and Yahoo were each charged with four claims of patent infringement, while Facebook was hit with one. The other eight companies were charged with two claims each.
    The suit does not name Microsoft, which Allen co-founded with Bill Gates in 1975 but left in 1983 after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease. Microsoft did not reply to a request asking whether it had licensed some or all of the applicable patents from Allen’s firm.
    Allen’s lawsuit claimed that the 11 companies violated patents developed by Internal Research, a Silicon Valley research lab he funded in 1992, but which shut its doors in 2000. David Liddle, who worked at the Xerox’s influential Palo Alto Research Center ( Xerox PARC) in the 1970s, was Interval’s CEO.
    Those patents were later transferred to Interval Licensing, a company owned by Allen.
    The two patents that make up the bulk of the claims are 6,263,507, “Browserfor Use in Navigating a Body of Information, With Particular Application to Browsing Information Represented By Audiovisual Data,” and 6,757,682, “Alerting Users to Items of Current Interest.” Allen’s lawsuit alleges that all but Facebook violated the ‘507 patent, and all 11 companies infringed the ‘682 patent.
    Interval filed applications for the four patents between March 1996 and September 2000, and was awarded the patents between March 2000 and September 2004.
    The ‘507 patent refers to a possible application in a “news browser” that could be used to “review news stories acquired during one day from several television news programs, as well as from text news sources.” The ‘682 patent, meanwhile, describes technology for alerting users of Web content related to what they’re currently viewing, or of others’ activities that might interest them.
    The ‘682 patent is the only one that Allen’s company claimed was violated by Facebook, the popular social networking site.
    The remaining two patents spell out an “attention manager” that would flash advertisements, stock quotes and other information in front of a user.
    The 15-page complaint singled out Google for special treatment, saying that Interval Research provided both funding and assistance to the then-fledgling search firm in 1998, the year founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin incorporated the company.
    Included with the complaint was a 1998 screenshot of Google’s “About” page that showed Interval Research credited as one of four sources of research funding, and one of two outside collaborators.
    In a statement Friday, Google called Allen’s lawsuit “unfortunate.”
    “This lawsuit against some of America’s most innovative companies reflects an unfortunate trend of people trying to compete in the courtroom instead of the marketplace,” said Google. “Innovation — not litigation — is the way to bring to market the kinds of products and services that benefit millions of people around the world.”
    Facebook’s take was more blunt. “We believe this suit is completely without merit and we will fight it vigorously,” said company spokesman Andrew Noyes in an e-mail.
    Other Firms contacted by Computerworld, including Apple and Yahoo, did not immediately reply to requests for comment on the lawsuit.
    Allen’s suit seeks unspecified damages, as well as injunctions that would block the accused companies from continuing to use the patented technologies.
    Earlier this year Forbes put Allen, 57, in the No. 37 spot on its world’s richest list, and estimated his net worth at $13.5 billion.

    I have a couple different Gmail addresses that I use for different purposes. Historically, Google Accounts – including Gmail accounts — have only let people access one account at a time per browser, so using both accounts has been a bit inconvenient. I’ve either had to sign out and sign back in, use a second browser for my second account, or use a Chrome incognito window. And I’m not alone; lots of people have asked us for a better way to use multiple accounts at once in the same browser.

    Now, you can visit google.com/accounts and click the link next to “Multiple sign-in.” After you sign into your first account, you can sign in with up to two additional accounts from the new accounts menu in the upper right hand corner of Gmail, then easily toggle back and forth between them. You can even open multiple Gmail tabs — one for each of your accounts.

    Please keep in mind that this is a feature for advanced users, and there are a couple things to watch out for:

    1) Not all Google services support multiple account sign-in yet. For the services that don’t support it (like Blogger and Picasa Web Albums), you’ll be defaulted to the first account you signed in with during that browser session. So if you click a link from Gmail to Blogger, for example, you’ll be logged into Blogger with the first account you signed in with, even if you clicked the link to Blogger from your second Gmail account.

    2) They’re still working on making Gmail and Calendar work offline with multiple sign-in. If you rely on offline access, you probably don’t want to enable this feature quite yet.

    3) Multiple account sign-in only works on desktop browsers for now, so if you use Gmail on your phone’s browser you won’t see this option yet.

    Since Google Apps customers can already sign in to their accounts at the same time as their personal Google Accounts, They won’t be adding this new feature to Google Apps until the new infrastructure is in place. 

    Below are the screenshots of certain warnings and infos displayed by Google when i attempted to use the multiple sign feature…

    When you check all these options and save your settings, then you should back to your Accounts Home Page and then you can find an option called ‘Sign In into Another Account’… And when you click that, you will get the below page …

    And when you sign in this page, you are now using this Multiple Sign In feature …
    Now as said already just find the below option, and select your account… You will find this on top right of the page…
