Attach up to 10GB files in Gmail, using Google Drive

Since Google Drive launched in April, millions of people have started using it to keep, create and share files. Starting today, it’s even easier to share with others: you can insert files from Drive directly into an email without leaving your Gmail.

Attaching a file in gmail sometimes becomes a pain these days becuase of the limit of 25MB offered by Gmail. Ask someone who might want to share videos often. Gmail now has a killer offering which allows you to attach files up to 10GB in size, using Google Drive.

According to the latest update on the Gmail blog post, you can now insert files directly from Google Drive into your email, without having to leave Gmail. The attachment size of 10GB is almost 400 times larger than a traditional attachment limit of 25 MB. Also, because you’re sending a file stored in the cloud, all your recipients will have access to the same, most-up-to-date version.

This feature is rolling out over the next few days and is only available in the new Compose box feature, so you’ll need to opt-in if you haven’t already. You will get to see the Google Drive logo titled ‘Insert files using Drive’ beside the attachment logo.

Gmail will also double-check that your recipients all have access to any files you’re sending. So, whenever you send a file from Drive that isn’t shared with everyone, you’ll be prompted with the option to change the file’s sharing settings without leaving your email.

Google launches Play Store seller support in India


Starting today, developers in India can sell paid applications, in-app products, and subscriptions in Google Play, with monthly payouts to their local bank accounts. They can take advantage of all of the tools offered by Google Play to monetize their products in the best way for their businesses, and they can target their products to the paid ecosystem of hundreds of millions of users in India and across the world.

Over the past year, Android device activations in India have jumped more than 400%, bringing millions of new users to Google Play and driving huge increases in app downloads. In the last six months, Android users in India downloaded more apps than in the previous three years combined, and India has rocketed to become the fourth-largest market worldwide for app downloads. To help developers capitalize on this tremendous growth, we are launching Google Play seller support in India.

If you are an Android developer based in India, you can get started right away by signing in to your Developer Console and setting up a Google Checkout merchant account. If your apps are already published as free, you can monetize them by adding in-app products or subscriptions. For new apps, you can publish the apps as paid, in addition to selling in-app products or subscriptions.

When you’ve prepared your apps and in-app products, you can price them in any available currencies, publish, and then receive payouts and financial data in your local currency. Visit the developer help center for complete details.

Along with seller support, Google is also adding buyer’s currency support for India. They encourage developers everywhere to visit your Developer Console as soon as possible to set prices for your products in Indian Rupees and other new currencies (such as Russian Rubles).

Stay tuned for more announcements as Google continue to roll out Google Play seller support to many more countries around the world.

Mozilla Firefox Metro Preview for Windows 8

The Firefox team has been hard at work coming up with a version of its browser for the Metro Modern UI and today we get a peek at it. Mozilla has revealed a preview marking the beginning of Mozilla community testing for the Firefox Metro browser designed from the ground up for Windows 8.

This version of Firefox runs in both the Windows 8 “classic Desktop” environment, and in the new “Metro” environment.

For those of you running the RTM release of Windows 8, you can now download a nightly build of Mozilla Firefox from the Elm development branch and start testing. Elm is the experimental repository where most of our Metro development work has been happening. This repository produces nightly builds, much like the Firefox Nightly channel. Once installed, these builds will self-update so that you can track Metro Firefox development.


The preview includes a new Metro style Firefox Start page, support for Firefox Sync, Metro touch and swipe gestures, integration with Windows 8 “charms”, and a simple but powerful Australis interface that is streamlined, modern, and beautiful. Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be adding more features, tightening up Windows integration, improving performance and responsiveness, and finishing up all the necessary work to deliver a first class Firefox experience for Windows 8.

Sony Xperia V comes with sensor-on-lens touch screen technology

Sony has revelaed that its Xperia V will mark the debut for the sensor-on-lens technology. This technology combines the sensor and lens component of a standard capacitive display, reducing the number of layers, glare and other interference.

With the sensor-on-lens touch technology, there is one less layer of glass and one less layer of glue, compared to conventional touch panels. Typically, you will get less haze and about 5% better display luminance without those extra layers.

Also the phone is made lighter and thinner, as an extra glass layer is removed. This technology also moves the image plane closer to you as a user, which makes it feel like you are actually touching the image itself. With this direct touch experience, you will get less parallax issues compared to a conventional touch panel, as the image and the point of touch are closer together in the sensor-on-lens touch screen technology.

Sony believes that this will improve both image quality and the screen’s responsiveness.
