By enabling offline access, Gmail will load in your browser even if you don't have an Internet connection. You can read messages, star, label and archive them, compose new mail and messages ready to be sent will wait in your Outbox until you're online again.It's built on the Gears platform, which has already been used to offline-enable Google Docs, Google Reader, and other third-party web applications.

To get started with offline Gmail -- Sign in to Gmail and click 'Settings'.- Click the 'Labs' tab and select 'Enable' next to 'Offline Gmail'.- Click 'Save Changes.'- In the upper righthand corner of your account, next to your username, there will be a new 'Offline' link. Click this link to start the offline synchronization process.Standard Edition users can follow these instructions immediately, while Premier and Education Edition users will first need their domain admins to enable Gmail Labs from the Google Apps admin control panel.

Find Product Keys for Installed Software

When you needed to find the product keys for various programs I was planning to reinstall. Easier said than done. A sweet utility that saves hours of rummaging through boxes. Magical Jelly Bean's Keyfinder quickly and efficiently finds the product keys for installed programs, then lets you print them for safekeeping.
It's compatible with all versions of Windows and can dig up the keys for your operating system, Office apps, and various other programs.
Keyfinder is fast, free, and incredibly handy. It doesn't even require installation. I recommend it not just for those migrating to new PCs, but for anyone who wants to keep a hardcopy of important product keys.

Nokia Announces N79 Eco Edition

Recently Nokia announced their N79 Active edition and now they’ve announced another variant of the N79 called the Eco. The handset is available in Petrol Black and is sold without the charger to reduce space that will in turn reduce boxing material, create more space to ship more and so on and so forth.

The Eco edition will be available with 3 Express-on rear panels and Nokia has promised to donate Four Pounds, that’s about Rs. 285, to WWF (World Wildlife Fund) for every box that sells. Since the N79 has support for a standard Nokia charger it’s not a big deal to simply use an old one.

World's oldest person dies at 115

The world's oldest person, Maria de Jesus, died on Friday at the age of 115 in a hospital in the Portuguese community of Corujo near the city of Tomar.

She held the Guinness world record for just a month after the death of American Edna Parker.

De Jesus, born on September 10, 1883, had never left the small town where she was born and completely avoided both alcohol and coffee.

Her husband, Jose, died 58 years ago, when she was 57 years old. She had six children, 11 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.
