Google Labs Closes, Nothing Changes

It was the worst day in the history of the world this Wedesday, today if you're reading this post on the correct day, when Google announced that they'd be closing their Google Labs department. For some this was a sign of imminent doom because they'd been experimenting right alongside Google Labs since before GMail. But for others, no change would be happening. Which are you? Let's have a talk and see, shall we?

I know we have all had a little Google+ overload over the last few days or hours but don't you all love it?

Last night Google updated the Google+ Android App and I must say that if the updates keep coming that fast we should be rocking by next week.

Gmail for Android Tweaked, Users May Now Set Up Priority Message Alerts

Google sent out an announcement today saying they'd be updating their Gmail application for the Android platform adding several features that make this update totally sweet. Gmail version 2.3.2 for Android improves first and foremost the priority inbox feature, allowing now a separate window for all priority messages and lets users set up rings, vibrates, and all manner of alerts for when incoming priority messages arrive. This new Priority Inbox view also features the markers you're used to seeing in your desktop version of Gmail, your ability to change a conversation's importance as simple as two clicks.

It’s here, Droid X Finally gets 2.2 Froyo Update

After much waiting, many unconfirmed dates and a last minute rumor, Android 2.2 Froyo is finally available on the Droid X from Verizon Wireless. Bringing many welcome updates such as full flash 10.1, and improved WiFi hotspot support. A lot of the update to 2.2 goes to under the hood improvements, from the first time you use it you will notice a significant boost in speed and usability, even on a powerhouse such as the Droid X. Full flash 10.1 is finally here. Being present on some devices for some time now, users of the Droid X will finally get to experience what some fans claim is the “full web.” A lot of websites use flash, regardless of claims otherwise, it’s not dying at all. The recently patched, safe 10.1 is available with the Froyo update and according to tests does not slow down the device or waste substantial amounts of battery. Another new feature that you will be able to gets your hands on with, around the same timeframe as everybody else, is the new Gmail app. Google has strayed away from including Gmail in software builds and releasing it as a standalone app which will allow for the ability to update and stay current without the need for a full software update. Some of the news features in the new Gmail app include: a floating bar with important, much used message actions, showing and hiding the quoted text to hide previous messages within a reply, and limited support to Google’s much praised priority inbox. The Gmail app, which is available only for Android 2.2+ is free on the android store, search Gmail or scan the QR code below. We got our hands on a 2.2 based Droid X and ran a quick Quadrant test. The results prove the Droid X to be running wicked fast. With a score of 1370, it improved vastly over it’s previous score as well as came out ahead of the Nexus One, Samsung Galaxy, and the HTC Desire.
