Google Talk – Message length allowed on google chat software

Do you know you can type as long as 32,767 characters long message in your Google Talk’s chat window? That is approximately 7 pages at 12 font size and exactly 32 kilobytes of data. That’s a lot of text for an instant message. Gtalk is Google’s popular chat software that allows you to chat on different platforms including PC, Blackberry, Android, iphone and other mobile platforms. Google chat has kept their interface simple through all times without sacrificing any features.

Google Talk has a large chat window but its not the largest. Skype actually has a virtually unlimited chat window and as long as your system can handle data in that window, you can keep growing it. Try it out yourself.

Those who die, live forever on social networks

Recently, a very dear friend of mine passed away and left us for ever. A very young and a very nice guy. Like most of us, he was an active user of online social networks as well and had an account on Facebook as well. As soon as he died, everyone on his friends’ list started posting content on his profile and soon his wall became a huge memory board and prayer room.

When I’ll die, I’ll leave an online account on Facebook as well?

This is a question that we all have to ask ourselves. No, I’m not telling you to delete your accounts. I’m pointing you to a service by Facebook that lets you report that a person is dead. Once Facebook is sure about this fact, they will mark the person deceased, will disable his account so that nobody gains control of it even if they have his password and only the friends he or she added when alive will be able to view the deceased’s virtual wall. So if you have anyone in your family or friends who is no more with us, please visit this link and report deceased and the account will be memorialized.

Admob.com is down. First time since Google took it over


Admob is the popular ads site for Mobile applications and websites. Admob.com is experiencing an outage and is not allowing users to log on to the system. This is the first time I’ve experienced this since Google has taken over the company. This is only the outage on the website. Ads are being served fine both on sites as well as apps.

Lets see how long they stay offline. Do post if you have any related updates.

Nokia is done with N-Gage too, again.

Nokia has announced that 2010 will be the last year their N-Gage gaming platform and N-Gage arena will be operational. This is because of two things. Firstly, I’m very doubtful that Nokia achieved their targets from the N-Gage brand. Secondly, Nokia is really seriously pushing their service brand OVI. So any gaming related to Nokia will now be called OVI-Games.

Nokia has played the N-Gage card twice. Initially they launched Nokia N-Gage devices that looked like a small gaming console and were amazing for playing games. The devices were named Nokia n-gage and Nokia n-gage-QD respectively. On the in-side, they were simple Symbian S60 smartphones with symbian or J2ME games to play on.

Second time they used N-Gage brand was with their latest line of N-Series phones that could install an application named N-Gage. You could download, install and games right from the N-Gage app itself. No doubt N-Gage games have been great but I think its about time Nokia moves on. Second attempt to use N-Gage brand doesn’t work out again in my opinion.
