Google 404 Error page – title error ?

Recently I was trying to connect to Google Plus using invite. it always gave me 404 ( Page not found error ).

While sadly looking at this page, I have noticed something different in the title bar of this page. It says

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

instead of ( I guess )

Error 404 (Not Found)!!!

 

Also I think that the previous Google 404 error page was much more detailed then this one. This one looks good in terms of design, but just saying 404 that’s an error, and That’s all we know does not much help the user.


Google + invite gives 404 error

Everyone wants Google plus invite, to see what Google has done with Social Networking after failed attempts of Buzz, Wave etc.

Thanks to one of my good friend, I got the invite today, and attempted to check it.

But whenever I tried to login/connect to Google Plus I always greeted with 404 ( Page not found error )

A quick Google of this issue revealed that lot of other people are facing same issue

After reading lot of good things about the Google plus effort this is really disappointing.


GMail – Run Out of Space

2010-10-26_1606 GMail is arguably the most effective email solution existing today on the planet. They are damn good and rolling interesting features every day. But what makes them unique is the core line

“Among crowded features they always remember, people use Gmail for email services and they always make it priority when designing new features.”

I use Gmail as my document repository, my chat history ( gTalk is awesome, when it comes to chat ), my scheduler and oxygen ( Yes, No doubt, I can not live without it until I will find better oxygen).

I have started using Gmail from 2005 and now its friendship of more than 5 years, and truly, Gmail is a great friend. It gives you ample space to use as mail repository in free edition, but free is not always enough when you are using it like oxygen. Currently they are giving away more than 8 Gigs of space for free usage which includes GMail, Picasa, Google Docs and other Google services  you use which requires storage.

Recently my Gmail started to show me warning that I am almost out of space ( 95% usage )

AlmostOutOfSpace

I deleted few emails permanently from my Life ( it is bad ) but in  just two more days ( in that period my clients used to send me video attachment of 15 MB ), I got this message from gMail

RunoutGMAil

and as they have indicated in the warning, I was not able to send or RECEIVE emails, so I have decided to purchase additional storage rather than deleting few more emails. So I went through the process of purchasing additional email storage.

The Process :

1. Click on purchase additional storage

2. You will be given choice of plans available and their prices.

20 Gigs additional storage for 5 USD per year is not bad deal at all  ( It means now you will have 20 Gigs new purchased storage + the more than 7 Gigs of Basic storage that comes for free with every account = more than 27 Gigs of storage )

3. Click on Buy 20 Gb for $5.00 per year.

4. Proceed through Google  CheckOut

5. Done… But it will take 24 hours to get that space added to your account.

Now enjoy GMail.


Google Search – How to , I am shocked

 

I don’t know where we are going.

Recently I tried to Google about some PLESK problem.  Google has a nice little feature to suggest you some of the common phrases other people searched, matching your search query know as Google Suggest.

I just typed in How to in search box and as usual Google presented me with list of common search phrases people are searching, and I GOT SHOCKED.

Result of How To – ( 6-Aug-2010 )

Now lets go in a bit detail :

1) World’s biggest two problems today are, IMHO, population and corruption. AND Google shows me that majority of people wants to know “How to get pregnant”

.2) World is now so health conscious that 3 of the top search results are about reducing and gaining weight.

More analysis later.

 

 

This is today’s results ( 7-Aug-2010 ).
