The Story of Gmail’s new tabbed interface


If you are using Gmail daily, this is not a new thing for you. But few days ago, Google introduced a new tabbed interface into the Gmail accounts, and this post is all about it.
If you are not familiar with this new interface, you might get a clear idea about it after reading this. So keep reading :)

The Old story…………..

We know that, Gmail was started as a service by Google to overcome the problems we had with other email service providers like Yahoo & msn. They were the most popular email services before the arrival of Gmail. The main problem of these old services was the space they provided. It was a very little amount of storage and users had to keep their inboxes cleared to welcome the new emails. Then Google introduced their new product, Gmail. They promised that they will provide unlimited storage for their users. But by now they offer only 10 GB of free storage, and it is comparatively a fair storage for nothing (I mean for free :D).

Why is it?

What I wanted to tell you was that Gmail / Google always introduces new things to help their users. This new tabbed interface also the same. Since emails have become an essential part of our day to day lives, it is important that we do not miss any email because each and every email will be useful most of the times. Hence Gmail has come up with this new interface which will bring you a clean and a well organized inbox.

How it works?

Gmail will automatically add 3 tabs (by default it has 05 pre generated tabs) to your inbox as Primary, Social, and Promotions. Other two are Updates and Forums, and they are not activated by default.

The Good news is that if you do not like this tab thing you can always hide them.




Why I need those tabs?

OK, be cool….They will just filter your emails in the inbox. Don’t worry…all your mails are there. Read the below lines and you will find exactly what it will do for you :)

Primary Tab: the mails you usually receive from other people, especially from the people you know by the name of the sender will be included in this tab. (to be exact, the emails you receive from an individual. Cool. Got it?)

Social Tab: I know, we all are social addicts, maybe either Google+, Facebook, twitter or anything else, we all use them. But what’s the bad with them? Yes they do send emails daily. Yeah? Personally I don’t like this type of emails. The problem is now solved. Those mails will directly go to the social tab.
See how easy? Now no more hassles choosing the important mails…

Promotions Tab: If you have subscribed to any mailing list, you may already have experienced the spam-my type useless mails (most of the times they send crap.)
No problem, now you don’t need to worry about them. Gmail will filter them for you.

Updates Tab: This tab will filter emails which are in the type of confirmations or receipts or bills. Say if you have registered for a website, and they want you to reconfirm your email address. You will get en email from them. So this is an important tab. If you have not activated this tab, the emails in this category will be shown in the primary tab.

Forums Tab: This is similar to the above Promotions tab, but this includes the emails from Public Forums, or Group discussion boards which you are engaged in.

How to use the tabs?

Well, actually you don’t have to do anything. Gmail will handle everything for you.
But still if you need any email to be shown in a specific group, you can drag and drop the email to the tab you need. Gmail will ask you whether you need to follow this action for the future mails from this sender. 

Click on yes.

It is simple as that.


To manage the tabs, click on the + icon next to the tabs. It will bring up the options box. Or click on the settings button (the toothed wheel icon on the top right corner), and click on “Inbox Options”. It will also open the same options window. To make any tabs hide or visible, just use the check box to tick or un-tick the tab. To completely hide the tabs, un-tick all the check boxes and click on save button. (You can’t un-tick the primary tab, but it will not be shown if other tabs are not selected).


Inbox options window


Summary.....

Gmail introduces all these features to enhance the experience of its users, and hence to increase the user friendliness. Ultimately, it is an important factor for any product, maybe it is either an Online or an offline product, the user friendliness is still important. So do you think this feature of Gmail will be helpful? Or have it been already useful to you?

Here we are just adding some codes to our blogger template. So it is very important that we should always backup out template before we do any changes. In case of any mistakes happened by you and went anything wrong, you can just replace your template. So you don’t want to worry too much.

First let’s see how you can backup your blogger template.

So go on and log into your blogger account. Select your blog. Then go to template menu option in your right hand side menu.

After that you will see a button in the upper right corner of your page. (See the image below)



After you click on it, you can use the “Download full template” button to download your template (it will be xml file).

So once you have taken the backup, you can move forward with editing your HTML.

Now click on Edit Html button as shown in the above image.

Then press “ctrl + F” (to open find menu), and type “</head>” (without quote marks) in the “find” field and press enter to locate it in your HTML code.

After that, paste the following piece of code just above the </html> tag you found inside your code.

Now find for the below piece of code,


“<div class='post-footer'>”


Then paste the below code just above it.

<div id='related-posts'>
<b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>

</b:if>
<script expr:src='&quot;/feeds/posts/default/-/&quot; + data:label.name + &quot;?alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=related_results_labels_thumbs&amp;max-results=6&quot;' type='text/javascript'/></b:loop>
<script type='text/javascript'>
removeRelatedDuplicates_thumbs();
printRelatedLabels_thumbs(&quot;<data:post.url/>&quot;);
</script>
</div><div style='clear:both'/>
<!-- remove --></b:if>
<b:ifcond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'><b:ifcond='data:post.isFirstPost'>
</b:if></b:if>
<!-- Related Posts widget for blogger End-->

Vuescan Cracked (Professional) version

Update Notice : 23rd August 2014. 
If you are looking for the latest fix to remove the watermark, please check my new article written on 14th Aug 2014. It was written for the latest cracked version of vuescan, and includes a download link.

Link Here : How to remove Vuescan watermark – Vuescan 9.4 Crack Version 


Update Notice : 15th January 2014. This article was updated and added a direct link to download the Vuescan Cracked Version as many readers complained me that I have not provided a link to download the software.


Vuescan crackedRecently I wanted to scan a few of my urgent documents and I tried to connect my old Epson scanner to the laptop. Then I understood that I have been using the scanner on my old desktop computer which was running on windows xp, and it no longer supports my current version of windows in my laptop (Window 7) actually there was no driver available for windows 7 64 bit from Epson

So I had to get the help of Google, and I found this Software “Vuescan Professional Edition 9.2.”. It looked fine and it was just only around 08 MB. So I downloaded it and opened and scanned the document. Everything worked very fine until I found that it was an unregistered version and I have to buy it for USD 39 from the creators. They place a watermark in the output image until you buy the original software, which makes the entire image useless. Actually I was not in a position to buy that it at that moment since I was just in a hurry to get the documents get scanned (because I would have get the job done by a local shop for a very low amount). So I looked around for a temporary solution and I found some sites which offer Serial numbers for this particular application. So I tried them with the software and the keys were recognized as valid, but still the watermark was there as it is. (No, just somewhat different :D actually the number of watermarks got reduced to four.) But still the image was useless.

I tried the serial numbers just to test the software, whether I could get the job done since it was just a single document, but it didn't work as I expected. I think the results would have been same even if I have bought the software.

I do not recommend or suggest you to use pirated or cracked software. Always try to buy the original software. But still it is very important that you review about the software or the product before you actually buy it.

This was a good experience for me. I was thinking what I would feel if I have bought this. It was not really working as I expected. The serial keys I used were apparently OK or valid since the application identified them.

Please share your ideas if you ever had any experience like this……It will be useful for others :)
