Yes you read that right, you can now send email using your Facebook account, meaning you can now send emails to other services such as Yahoo and Gmail using your Facebook account. You can have your personalized email account name with that nice “@facebook.com” extension at the end to send messages to other email services.
If you are a first time user, here’s how to get your own Facebook email address:
Just go to Messages and clik on the link above that say’s: “Claim your email address”, it is where you type the email name you would like that would appear with the “@facebook.com”, the default name that you get is your “firstname.lastname@example.org” but you can change this to suite a more personalized Facebook email address.
The only thing is, you cannot add a subject line on the email but instead the subject line the receiver would get would read something like “Conversation with [name]”, from this Tech4idiots thinks that this service is not exactly designed to replace your existing emails from services like Yahoo and Gmail but rather as an extension for Facebook’s messaging service to other email services. It’s still in its early phase and not everyone already knows about this feature so maybe Facebook will allow adding images, text editing, adding a subject line on future updates.
So go ahead, try it for yourself, get that personalized email name before someone else gets the “[name you've always wanted]@facebook.com” address before you.
Go to Facebook.com
Here’s a cool looking trick for Google I found very interesting and fun. It’s called Google Sphere, what it does is that it makes all the content, text and images on the Google search page into a rotating sphere (hence Google Sphere, duh). You can use your mouse to rotate the sphere in any direction you drag your mouse pointer to, although this can also make searching more difficult due to everything moves whenever you move your mouse, its still a pretty fun way to add a new dimension to your Google experience.
You can even type in a search term and images that will come up will also be placed into the rotating sphere, the whole thing is a little more of an eye candy for you guys.
Here’s how to do it:
* Go to Google.com
* Enter Google Sphere on the text box and click the “I’m feeling lucky” button.
* You will see everything on the Google search page turned into a rotating sphere.
* Try entering for any search term (in the screenshot’s case “psp”) and click the “Search Images”
Tech4idiots has tested this on Firefox and Chrome and found out that this works best on… you guessed it, Chrome!
