Gmail available offline

Google Inc. is giving people a way to manage their e-mail even when they’re offline, marking the Internet search leader’s latest move to unshackle its services from the Web.

The offline feature introduced this week is aimed primarily at workers who rely on Google’s Gmail service as part of their jobs. But anyone with a standard account can choose the option. (This can be accomplished by clicking on “settings” and then entering Google’s “labs” section.)

Dolphin Chefs

Olympic Handball

29 Jan


My initial arrival here in Europe was back in August 2008 during the Olympics. i was blessed to be introduced to the fastpaced, action packed sport of Olympic Handball, or also called, European or Team Handball. i didn’t fully understand handball at first but as i continued to watch it, i become more and more of a fan. It grabbed my attention with various similarities to basketball, with it’s quick action and the athletes opportunity to showcase their full array of athleticism, skill, and intellect. It also has some very noticable similarities to futbol (soccer) and ice hockey. Two other popular sports played here in Europe, which have helped the attractiveness of the sport, increasing its fan base.

For a better description of the sport, i did like any other person in my generation would do… GOOGLE iT!!
or you can read the Wikipedia definition.
