How You Can Sell Your Phone for Cash

sell phone for cash

It seems like everybody with a cell phone has at least five or six old ones laying around. They collect dust in drawers, sit in glove compartments, and lay around the bottom of bags and purses. Most people's old phones don't go unused because they don't work- they're just no longer up-to-date. This doesn't have to happen to you, though. With a little bit of effort, you can sell your phone for cash, and cut down on old phone clutter in your home.

Cell phone companies upgrade their selections constantly. This is great, if you're the kind of person who likes having access to all of the latest and greatest gadgets, but is less great if your old phone breaks, and you don't like the selection of newer generation models. A lot of people fall into this latter category. If you have an old cell phone to get rid of, you can sell your phone for cash, and help these people out at the same time.

Part of the problem with phone companies is that they sell people on the idea that their old phones aren't any good, and aren't worth anything. This is absolutely not true, and you shouldn't let that keep you from trying to sell your phone for cash. As long as it's clean, in decent external condition, and in working order, your old phone has value to someone. If someone out there is willing to buy your old phone, why shouldn't you sell it to them instead of letting it sit around and become outdated?

It's easy to sell your phone for cash, too. Unlike newspaper classifieds, which cost money, don't give you much visibility, don't target your ads to a specific audience, and charge a lot of money if you want to include a photo of the phone you're selling, the internet gives you the chance to get rid of your old, unwanted phone in a way that's as effective as it is simple. There are a growing number of websites out there that let you turn old phones into money, and all you need to so is come up with a concise description of what you're selling, take some good, well-lit photos that accurately show your phone's external condition, and be ready to ship it out to the buyer as soon as you sell your phone.

Unlike taking ads out in other areas, using a site that helps you sell your phone for cash is cheap- in many cases, it doesn't cost any money upfront. Some sites just charge you a small fee after you find a buyer for your phone, or take a percentage of the sale price in order to cover what they pay in bandwidth and money transfer fees. You get cash money transferred to your account, you get rid of your old phone, and your buyer gets the phone they want. Everybody wins!

Even if you find out that you can't sell your phone for cash like you'd hoped, don't give up! Many of the same sites that let you list your old phones for sale also allow you to send your phone in for recycling, or to be donated to a charitable institution. Many people don't realize that, while using cell phones is completely safe, many of them contain materials that need to be disposed of as hazardous materials, especially batteries and certain screens. Therefore, simply throwing your old phone away if you can't sell your phone for cash isn't just wasteful, it's a bad idea. If you can't find someone to use it as-is, recycling your phone will ensure that none of the hazardous components end up in a landfill, where they don't belong.

If you're sitting on some old or discontinued phones, you're sitting on a potential gold mine. Why wait for your phone company to discount their latest and greatest phone, when you could get money to put towards it by selling your old ones? When you sell your phone for cash, you help yourself, your buyer, and the environment by keeping a perfectly good old phone from going to waste. Don't wait- turn your unwanted junk into cash today.

New Satellite to Give Satellite Internet a Boost

technology, internet service, satellite internet

More than 10 million Americans lack access to high-speed Internet. Well, HughesNet is going a step further this year and giving Americans access to Jupiter.

Jupiter is a next-generation spacecraft that is being launched later this year by HughesNet, one of the nation’s biggest and most influential satellite Internet providers.

SPACEWAY is the current HughesNet dedicated satellite, but the new $400 million Jupiter satellite will be able to transfer data even faster than SPACEWAY can. HughesNet has said that with this new satellite, download speeds have the potential to reach 20 megabits per second – about 10 times as fast as the current rate. These speeds will allow users to download pictures, videos and emails at a rate that far surpasses the current speeds
HughesNet and satellite Internet cater to the needs of residents that live outside of urban areas, where cable and DSL don’t reach and where dial-up is a last resort. Most cable companies don’t see a profit in extending to regions that aren’t highly populated, since cable companies thrive on packing many residents onto the same signal. HughesNet satellite Internet accommodates those that get overlooked by cable and DSL companies and gives a bright alternative to dismal dial-up speeds.
To get satellite Internet, there are only two conditions. One, you need to live in the lower 48 states and two, your home needs to have an unobstructed view of the southern sky. If you meet those requirements, then you are eligible for satellite Internet.
The way it works is really a simple process. You have a satellite at your home, which sends signals to a satellite in space (for HughesNet it will soon be the Jupiter satellite). The satellite in space then relays the signal to the provider’s office back on Earth. This whole process takes somewhere around 250 milliseconds. All in all, about one second of wait time.
That wait time can cause a choppy connection if you are playing video games or video conferencing, but if you are looking to send and receive emails, shop online, download music etc., satellite Internet can get the job done.
HughesNet is making a big leap with the imminent launch of Jupiter, and is just another step toward making the Internet accessible to users in remote areas. In the next couple of months, look for HughesNet and Jupiter to make a big splash.

Why One May Want To Unlock iPhone 3G

iphone unlock

With the current number of network operators hitting the skies, it is possible that the trends in the telecommunication industry have taken new forms. Talk of market behaviors, sales techniques and even service delivery; all have now transformed into forms that are very incognizant by one, a few years earlier on. Well, this is just but the truth however; the centre of concern here is the trend of mobile locking. It is almost a trend to purchase some handset only to realize they can’t work with one’s network service provider settings. This is really nothing to raise eyebrows at, let alone broiling over: but yes, there has to some way about it.

One may have had similar cases with their iphone 3G but didn’t know what to do - but for the smarter ones, they at least tried to find possible ways to unlock iphone 3G handsets from experts. Whichever the experience, it is quite handy to outline the reasons which may warrant one into entertaining the thoughts of trying to unlock iphone 3G –enabled handsets. Well, not all people may want to unlock their iphone however, for those who have taken bold strides in doing so, they usually do this out of the possibilities of being tied down to one network or even after relocating into a new country where the network settings are not compatible to those supported by their handsets. These are just but the main theories revolving about unlocking an iphone 3G.

The possibilities of one trying to unlock their phone may be barred by the negative ideologies usually surrounding such thoughts. Without having the consideration that phone-locking prevents people from a lot of features and utilities, certain individuals usually associate this to a vice rather than a convenience. In a psychological perspective, one may deem themselves free from the chains of a certain network operator after unlocking their iphone, as may be they really don’t like the services provided by them. Reasons may vary from one person to another however, it all goes down to the basic features one may wish supported by their iphone.

Unlike the bad reputation the act of unlocking has been associated with, such as hacking, it is quite beneficial and must be encouraged but done in a very professional and integral way. In actual sense, the benefits realized by unlocking an iphone are just immeasurable and can’t be really ignored or even worse off, neglected.

So what is a HEPA Filter?

hepa filter

All of the top of the range filration systems today have a HEPA filter and we mostly all know that it’s a positive benefit, but do we truly understand what it does? It’s considered the contemporary apex of vacuum cleaner tech and the only way to improve on one HEPA filter kit is to have two working at once. Let’s take a critical look at this advanced piece of tech to get an idea of what they offer us as far as home cleaning and technology is concerned.

The Definition of a HEPA Filter

The High-Efficiency Particle Air filter, or HEPA filters, are effective in vacuum cleaners but are also used in industries such as pharmaceutical cleanliness, cars, planes and residential units. For a HEPA vacuum filter to be considered efficienct enough to qualify to standard they need to remove around 99.97% of items smaller than 0.3 millimetres. The DOE of America set this precidence but how that exact percentage is measured is anyone’s guess; when we’re talking about removing dust though, it’s a welcomed figure. A HEPA filter cleaning precedence is also achieved according to exact indoor parameters along with its ability to remove minute debris.

How a HEPA Filter Works

HEPA air filters are made up of a matte of arbitrarily arranged fibres which are typically made up of fibreglass and possess distances of aroujnd 0.5 and 2.0 micrometres. HEPA filter vacuum cleaners are meant to target incredibly small particles and harmful material; more so than the average filter and the ability to do this is dictated by three aspects. The three stages of a HEPA filter, be it on an air purifier or a vacuum cleaner, are all handled simultaneously; there is the interception phase when minute debris pieces follow a single air stream within one area of a fibre and stick to it, the impaction phase where larger minute objects are incapable of navigating the curved bends of the passing air flow and are cornered into a wedge locking them inside the filter and finally the diffusion phase is the marrying of the two above phases to heighten the possibility that any trailing particles are caught.

Universal HEPA Filter Functions

The HEPA filter comes in many classes all designating the effectiveness of their practical use and serve to illustrate their usage depending on the need. The seminal HEPA filter was developed at the same time as the atomic bomb, in order to curb the distribution of flying radioactive debris. Although the technology is somewhat older than one would expect, it’s only in recent years that its function in vacuum cleaners has been used. Either way the HEPA filter has many functions for use in modern cleanliness.

BlueStacks - Play all the android apps on your Windows PC


Feel the android flavor right on your computer. Recently, Silicon Valley-based Company called "BlueStacks" recently released an application for playing android apps on Computer which they call as "app player". It is a PC program (.exe file) that enables users to download Android apps & games directly or transfer them from your Android phone to PC.

You need to do NOTHING to android app to make it work in BlueStacks – the app will run as is.
I myself am using this software & trust me; this will make your day! Play all your favourite games on your PC. I’m thinking of making my PC as my phone! Well that’s a future idea for all mobile brands.

Nothing. They say they want to build the best possible product for their users for free.

Also, if you use apps which are designed for a tablet, you’ll get the same kind of app functionality on the PC. Now that sounds cool as well.

BlueStacks actually gives the Android crowd, device functionality on PC and puts the Android a step ahead of crowds of Windows & of Apple. Apple understands this trend and will soon merge the two app development platforms into a single one. Eventually, most, if not all, of its iOS apps will look and work the same on the iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
As for Microsoft, I'm uncertain if it even understands this concept.
For your knowledge, there are 200,000 plus Android apps already, it may not matter, since BlueStacks makes all of those work out of the box today.
So, if you have an Android phone or tablet and a Windows PC, check out BlueStacks.
In doing so, you just might get a glimpse of what the future of cross device apps will look like and how this could be a blueprint for the future of personal computing.
Such a nice & creative idea from Bluestack to make your Windows PC, a platform of Android.
As we say, Use IDM for downloading, here’s the download link for BLUESTACKS!

Instagram for Android? Yes, Please.

iPhone users have been enjoying the fun and functionality of Instagram for a while now, and Android users are about to see what all the hype is about. After months and months of waiting, Instagram became available for Android users on April 3, 2012.

What is Instagram?

Instagram is an application that allows for photo editing and photo sharing. Users can add filters to the pictures they take, making them look older or more vintage than the actual true image. Users can also share these images with other Instagram users, and like other social networking sites, users can post comments or "like" someone else's photos.
Though there are other photo editing and photo sharing apps available, Instagram is one of the most coveted. Instagram is a great app for people who enjoy taking pictures and playing around with different looks and styles through editing software. Many aspiring photographers use Instagram as a virtual portfolio, using the app as a way to showcase their artwork.
Instagram for Android

Instagram has been one of the most popular apps purchased from Apple's app store for a very long time, and many Android users wanted it for their devices. Instagram was recently made available to Android users on the Google Play store, and users downloaded the app like it was going out of style. Instagram is available on Android smartphones that run 2.2 software and up. Currently, it will not run on any Android tablets.
With Instagram for Android, users can alter their photos the same way that Apple users can, and they can still view the images from others, but it doesn't contain all the functionalities that the Apple version does.
Google and Instagram wanted to launch the product quickly, so they held back a few key features, such as the sharing capabilities through email, Flickr and Posterous, as well as Blur and Tilt/Shift features. Some other complaints have been that the in-app camera doesn't work very well, and users have to use the stock Android camera instead. This is a problem because the stock Android camera does not produce images in the same format that is required to use the Instagram app.
Instagram plans on making updates to its software in the near future to take care of the issues that users are having as well as implement the features that are currently missing. Reps for Instagram have said that their goal is to make the user interface the same between both Android and iOS devices, and that users should never be able to tell the difference between the two.
Though Instagram for Android may be lacking a few functionalities and may have a few tweaks that need to be addressed, most of the customer reviews found on Google Play are positive. Android users are happy to now have the photo editing tool that was once only available on Apple devices, and users are also excited to join the thousands of individuals already using the app and see the millions of images currently available.
Ashley Cole is a stay at home mother and frequent Instagram user who loves to write for blogs in her down time. She rarely writes without the help of a grammar checker and often uses the software to spot mistakes and problems she didn't even know were in her text. She is currently masterminding a kitchen remodeling project and wants a more transitional kitchen design.

How to Increase battery life of your android phone

The Android phones are probably the most popular electronic devices in the year 2011. Although Android provides nice facilities and entertainment, there are some facts that you need to consider about your android phone. Here are some tips that will help you about the battery life of your android phone. You can get rid of the battery problems by following some simple instructions shown here.
Adjusting the screen
The brighter screen eats more battery. Keep the brightness of your screen at normal level. You can adjust the brightness settings of your device in the Settings > Display > Brightness. Here you will see the check-box for automatic brightness. Just un-check it and apply custom settings for the brightness settings. Set the brightness to normal level so it stops draining more power from your battery.
You can also use the android’s built-in battery screen for reducing the battery usage of your android. Go to Settings > about phone > Battery use. Here you can see the amount of battery used by applications percentage wise. You see, nobody uses all the applications at the same time; all you do is minimizing your apps. So you can smartly choose which apps to use and which one to not.
Turn off wireless services when not in use
The background services for wireless communication are also battery eater. They just have a little work to do but eat lots of battery power. You should close the Bluetooth and WiFi services when there is no use of them. Some people forget to turn the Bluetooth or WiFi off and suffer from the less battery backup time.
Although GPS is good for you to get into anywhere, you don’t use it 24 hours a day, but you keep its background service on. This discharges your battery and reduces your android’s battery life. Turning off GPS and other wireless services would make an effective rise in your android phone’s battery life.
Reducing RSS updates
People usually subscribe to each website’s feeds they take interest in, but never read them all. Do not let your applications to update their feeds automatically. This is because they may use more battery from your android. Some applications need your approval before updating their feeds, and some not. Set the manual mode for update of RSS feeds for the applications.
Use Up-to-date Applications
Keep the latest versions of all applications in your phone. You can also automatically update your applications. Applications developers focus on battery life reduction when developing new versions of their applications. So you should take benefit of latest versions with less battery consumption.
After knowing these tips and tricks, you are now aware of improvement of your android’s battery life. Hope these tips will helpful to you.

How to get Notepad In Send To

Many apply a registry tweak to have notepad as an option for unknown file types. We frequently see such files which are actually just text, but named with some odd file-extension. And then, some suspicious files which we want to make sure what the contents are. Well, in such cases where the registry tweak is applied, the downside happens to be that even some known files get associated with notepad - but no, all we want is to be able to open a file with notepad - the association part in such cases is unwanted interference. Also, notepad becomes a permanent fixture on the right-click menu - which is again an annoyance.

So what we do, is to have notepad as an option in the Send-To options, of the right-click menu in explorer. It fulfils the purpose to perfection (atleast, in my case). Here's what we do:

1. right-click desktop, choose "New >> Shortcut"
2. Type the location of the item - "notepad" - (that's all, no need to give path)
3. Next >> type name for shortcut - "Edit with Notepad"
4. Click finish
5. Now right-click this shortcut on the desktop, and choose properties.
6. Confirm that the "target" and "start in" fields are using variables - "%windir%\system32\notepad.exe" - (absolute paths will be problematic if you use this .LNK on machines other than your own)
7. Now, browse to "%UserProfile%\SendTo" in explorer (which means "C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\SendTo\" folder)
8. And copy the "Edit with Notepad.lnk" file which you already created, to that folder.
9. So now, you can right-click on ANY file-type, and be offered an option to open with notepad, from the SendTo sub-menu.

So now, you just right-click on an .nfo or .eml or .diz file (which are associated with other programs, and are sometimes just plain-text files), and choose "Send To >> Edit with Notepad" and it will open in notepad!
No more botheration of applying registry tweaks for something as simple as this.

Keep track of your Computer running time


We all are always unsatisfied with the time we give to our computer.5-6 hours while running computer seems like just 1 hour when we shut down it & get up.
Why is it so? Are we addicted to it? Or there is a problem in our watch?
LOL...It is not like that..
80% of the things we do on net is of no use to us- says a recent survey by a US university.
So we keep a track on running computer by installing a software & installing a software needs more RAM to be used which means more busy our system gets.
Today, am giving a trick on how to check the time we have spend on our computer without installing any additional software in our computer.

Here's how you can verify your system uptime:

  1. Click Start
  2. Open RUN by searching for programs and files.
  3. In run , type 'cmd' to open a command prompt.
  4. At the prompt, type 'systeminfo'

Now scroll down the list of information till you get the line that says 'System Up Time'.

This will tell you in days, hours, minutes and seconds how long the system has been up.
NOTE- Do not act over-smart by directly opening 'systeminfo' in run dialog box, the windows will get open, nut will get vanished before you start reading the first word of your system's information. :D

This can be used in Windows XP also but there you get the command prompt or run directly in the 'ALL PROGRAMS' section in the start menu.

Hope it helped you...Got any suggestions? Write them in comments.

Micromax's new tablet-Funbook

As we know Mircomax introduced an affordable latest tablet on Tuesday, a 7-inch touch screen with latest Android ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) based tablet in just Rs. 6499/-.The most awaited tablet from Micromax mobile company has paved its way to serve our country. Micromax has also jumped into Tablet market after introducing its very first tablet called MICROMAX FUNBOOK.This is a very cool device for students and we can call it future of education. 

This tablet is targeted towards youth (especially k-12 students), because this device is specially designed for students. Micromax is giving a strong competition to other companies by its new tablet. There are also more tablets in the market recently launched HCL. There are also giant brands like iball, hp, spice and many other companies in the tablet market but Mircromax funbook gives competition from its very latest features and configuration. Micromax’s funbook includes installed apps which can use as study material as well you can access video & audio in many different formats.

Latest ICS (Android Ice Cream Sandwich) doesn’t need the front buttons and this makes a tablet cool and attractive but Micromax's device was not originally intended to run on Android 4.0 and the software upgrade was thought of later taking note of the interest in the latest version of Google's mobile operating system. Sometimes it is a bit awkward to find two sets of buttons, one on the screen and other on the body to perform exactly the same functions. But the advantage of having the hard buttons is that they are easier to access than their tiny on-screen buttons. But Micromax should have given adding touch buttons a thought, which could have been an added feature for the customer to buy it.

You can use Wi-Fi and USB dongle to surf the net. The 2800 mAh battery gives, according to Micromax, a browsing time of about 5 hours. I had been using the device intermittently (on WiFi) for this review and it ran out of battery in a little more than 4 hours.There are lots of apps already installed. 1000 movies installed by micromax.

Here you can have a look at the specifications of this device
1.22GHz Cortex A8 Processor- Quite good
Dual Mali - 400 2D/3 GPU - Okay
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich- Great
Display: (7-inch) capacitive- Good
Camera: 0.3 Fronts VGA- Okay for video calling
Memory: 4GB internal; Expandable 32GB micro SD - Satisfactory
512MB RAM- Okay
Media support: 1080p video; MPEG2/4, AVI, WMV, MOV (also supports MKV, FLV, MP3)- Good
Sensors: Gravity, accelerometer- Satisfactory
Battery: 2800mAh; 5 hours of browsing time-Okay
Connectivity: 3G dongle support via USB; HDMI out; Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g; USB 2.0- Good

Colors available for this device
This device is available in two colors: 
  •        Suave Silver, and
  •     Brilliant Black.

Why to buy?
The plus points for this tablet are:
  •       Price: - pricing is so affordable for any one it just 6499/- INR
  •      Views: - it is stylish and attractive 
  •      Weight: - its light weight and slip tablet
  •      Power: - you can browse 5hr.

Why not to buy?
The minus points for funbook are:
  • Charger: - There is no specific standard charger for charging the tablet and its seem very odd.
  • It’s hard to carry some looking chains equipment for charging the tablet.
  • Usb port: - there is no micro usb port for using and its essential requirement of any tablet 
  • Battery life 
  • Music:- music is also not so good in heads-free and speakers

The Funbook will be made available through 100,000 retail outlets across 50 cities in India.

Google's way of making April FOOL

Hahaha! Google just made the world April Fool!

See how?

"A Different Kind of Fiber

Google Fiber starts with 100 times more fiber than any source of fiber available today. Tested in labs across our Mountain View campus, we found that in just the right synthesis, psyllium and vitamins C and D morph into a byproduct we have coded as Fiberlicious. This smarter fiber delivers just what the body needs to sustain activity, energy and productivity up to 100 times more than you have experienced before." 
-says Google

LOL ! This is the official link of Google Fiber-

Click on GET GOOGLE FIBER button & see what you get.

Happy April Fool Day from us!

Choosing A Good Domain Name

Choosing a domain name for your site is one of the most important steps towards creating the perfect internet presence. If you run an on-line business, picking a name that will be marketable and achieve success in search engine placement is paramount. Many factors must be considered when choosing a good domain name. This article summarizes all the different things to consider before making that final registration step!

1. Short and Sweet

Domain names can be really long or really short (1 - 67 characters). In general, it is far better to choose a domain name that is short in length. The shorter your domain name, the easier it will be for people remember. Remembering a domain name is very important from a marketability perspective. As visitors reach your site and enjoy using it, they will likely tell people about it. And those people may tell others, etc. As with any business, word of mouth is the most powerful marketing tool to drive traffic to your site (and it's free too!). If your site is long and difficult to pronounce, people will not remember the name of the site and unless they bookmark the link, they may never return.

2. Consider Alternatives

Unless a visitor reaches your site through a bookmark or a link from another site, they have typed in your domain name. Most people on the internet are terrible typists and misspell words constantly. If your domain name is easy to misspell, you should think about alternate domain names to purchase. For example, if your site will be called "", you should also consider buying "" and "". You should also secure the different top level domain names besides the one you will use for marketing purposes ("", "", etc.) You should also check to see if there are existing sites based on the misspelled version of the domain name you are considering. "" may be available, but "" may be home to a graphic pornography site. You would hate for a visitor to walk away thinking you were hosting something they did not expect.

3. Hyphens: Your Friend and Enemy

Domain name availability has become more and more scant over the years. Many single word domain names have been scooped up which it makes it more and more difficult to find a domain name that you like and is available. When selecting a domain name, you have the option of including hyphens as part of the name. Hyphens help because it allows you to clearly separate multiple words in a domain name, making it less likely that a person will accidentally misspell the name. For example, people are more likely to misspell "" than they are "". Having words crunched together makes it hard on the eyes, increasing the likelihood of a misspelling. On the other hand, hyphens make your domain name longer. The longer the domain name, the easier it is for people to forget it altogether. Also, if someone recommends a site to someone else, they may forget to mention that each word in the domain name is separated by a hyphen. If do you choose to leverage hyphens, limit the number of words between the hyphens to three. Another advantage to using hyphens is that search engines are able to pick up each unique word in the domain name as key words, thus helping to make your site more visible in search engine results.

4. Dot What?

There are many top level domain names available today including .com, .net, .org, and .biz. In most cases, the more unusual the top level domain, the more available domain names are available. However, the .com top level domain is far and away the most commonly used domain on the internet, driven by the fact that it was the first domain extension put to use commercially and has received incredible media attention. If you cannot lay your hands on a .com domain name, look for a .net domain name, which is the second most commercially popular domain name extension.

5. Long Arm of the Law

Be very careful not to register domain names that include trademarked names. Although internet domain name law disputes are tricky and have few cases in existence, the risk of a legal battle is not a risk worth taking. Even if you believe your domain name is untouchable by a business that has trademarked a name, do not take the chance: the cost of litigation is extremely high and unless you have deep pockets you will not likely have the resources to defend yourself in a court of law. Even stay away from domain names in which part of the name is trademarked: the risks are the same.

6. Search Engines and Directories

All search engines and directories are different. Each has a unique process for being part of the results or directory listing and each has a different way of sorting and listing domain names. Search engines and directories are the most important on-line marketing channel, so consider how your domain name choice affects site placement before you register the domain. Most directories simply list links to home pages in alphabetical order. If possible, choose a domain name with a letter of the alphabet near the beginning ("a" or "b"). For example, "" will come way above "". However, check the directories before you choose a domain name. You may find that the directories you would like be in are already cluttered with domain names beginning with the letter "a". Search engines scan websites and sort results based on key words. Key words are words that a person visiting a search engine actually search on. Having key words as part of your domain name can help you get better results.

Gmail Tap-Is it April Fool?

We hope it's not APRIL FOOL surprise for us! Whatever we love the concept!

Google has introduced it's new revolutionary keyboard for mobile devices. The QWERTY keyboard was invented in 1874 and yet it is still used today, largely unchanged. They have introduced a new input method designed for the future: Gmail Tap for Android and iOS.

What can be done with Gmail tap?

Gmail Tap takes the keyboard from 26 keys to just two. Every letter of the alphabet is represented by a simple pattern of dots and dashes, and once you know them you can type without even looking at your screen. This makes it ideal for situations where you need to discreetly send emails, such as when you're on a date or in a meeting with your boss.

This is the new interface of the technology Google has devised.

See the video below to know more about this technology direct from the Google experts.

We know this technology cannot be created (whatever!), so we conclude it to be APRIL FOOL by Google!
