The Complete ANDROID Guide.

It’s been more than 4 months since I switched to Android when I got the Samsung Galaxy Note and till date I’m enjoying it very much. I have always had this habit of exploring gadgets and learning to operate them by use and trial method. I rarely use the guide or instructions manual until unless its too technical and which is beyond my imagination. But I have come across lot of people who readily use the instruction manuals or guides in order to use softwares and gadgets. Therefore I thought of sharing a complete guide which helps in learning a lot about Android Phones, it is Kevin Purdy’s book – The Complete Android Guide. The entire book is available is different forms and can be bought and downloaded as per format needed. Also the entire content of the book is available in the form of an open wiki which anyone can read for free online.

As the name suggests,The Complete Android Guide is a detailed and illustrated book which discusses almost all the features of Android. It not only includes useful tips but also ways to fix common annoyances with Android based phones. There is a section on popular Android Apps which helps in finding the right apps quickly.

How to add Facebook contacts on Google+ .

Google + is the most happening thing on the Social Media sector these days all over the world. Since starting in late June 2011 it has been reported that over 25million people are already on board and the count is not only increasing daily but hourly. Google+ has become the fastest social network to touch that users mark. But we all are on Facebook since a long time and spend lot of time on it with our friends and family, so I thought of sharing an easy way of adding all your facebook contacts to Google plus account. Here it is –

1 – Go to yahoo mail and create a new account. There is no harm in using your current yahoo account if you have any but creating a new one will make it easier as it will deal with only your facebook friends and contacts.

2 – In the yahoo mail account press contacts, choose ” import contacts ” and sign in your Facebook account. Please remember to use Internet Explorer for importing contacts from Facebook as the import function will not work on Chrome or Firefox.

3 – Yahoo mail will immediately start importing your facebook contacts’ email addresses.

4 – Now get on Google+ and choose show all under the list of suggestions and then select find friends – Yahoo.
You’ll have to agree to share info between Google and Yahoo and then all contacts will be imported from Facebook friends to Google+.

It sounds very easy and it is very easy to get all facebook contacts on Google+. ENJOY !!

Timeline of GOOGLE : 1995 – 2011 , continued….

1995 – Co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin meet at Stanford University, when Brin shows Page, a prospective postgraduate student, around. The two apparently disagree about everything they discuss.

1997 – The search engine’s name is changed to GOOGLE , a play on the word “googol”, the term for the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. It is intended to demonstrate their intent to organise the web’s seemingly infinite amount of content.
