‘Speak’ Foreign Languages with Google Translate

google translate with speech

You use the free Google Translate service to instantly translate text from one language to another and in some language pairs, you may even listen to the translated text by clicking the blue speaker icon as show in the the above screenshot.

In theory, such a feature may come handy in situations when the person on the other side of the phone doesn’t understand your language. You can type the text in your native language, hit translate and play the translated text as audio (example) over the phone.

But will this thing really work?

As part of Demo Slam, these two girls decided to call an Indian restaurant and placed the entire order in Hindi using the “text to speech” feature of Google Translate.

They typed their responses in English in the Google Translate box and played the translated Hindi version to the order taker. After some waiting, the ordered food was at their doorstep.

 
Docs for facebook PDF Print E-mail
About Docs.comDocs.com makes it easy for you to discover, create and share documents on Facebook. To achieve these goals, we’ve integrated with the Facebook platform and website. The following lays out specifics of how and for what purposes docs.com makes use of Facebook user data.

At a high level, why does docs.com need to access my Facebook content?

Docs.com uses Facebook content for two reasons: to verify your access to shared documents, and to personalize your docs.com experience.

How and why does docs.com use Facebook content to verify access to documents?

As a web service centered on the sharing of documents, docs.com assigns user permissions to each document on the site. You, the document owner, may grant the ability to read and edit your documents to whomever you’d like. When you grant others access to your documents, you may choose to have the docs.com service publish Facebook notifications one of two ways – by direct message to that user’s Facebook inbox, or by a post to your own News Feed. When your friends click these posted links, docs.com uses Facebook user data to ensure that you’ve granted them access to your document.

How and why does docs.com instantly personalize my experience?

Docs.com uses Facebook’s new instant personalization to enable smooth transitions when a user navigates from Facebook’s website to the docs.com website. Docs.com is then able to seamlessly verify access permissions, and to list other documents the user has access to. This increases the likelihood that the friends you’ve invited to edit your document will in fact do so.

What Facebook content does docs.com access?

Docs.com accesses your Facebook username, list of friends and profile pictures.

What Facebook content does docs.com store and why?

Docs.com stores the unique user number (ID) that identifies a given user on Facebook. This helps docs.com identify that user when they visit the site and enables docs.com to confirm a user’s ability to view, edit and create documents.

What content does docs.com cache (temporarily store) and why?

Docs.com temporarily stores a given user’s list of Facebook friends, including their names and profile pictures, for two reasons: to provide you a list of friends to invite to your documents, and to show you documents that your friends have shared with you.

How does docs.com gain access to this user data?

Docs.com only accesses this information if you or one of your friends visits the site.

What if I don’t want to participate?

You can click the “no thanks” button in the blue bar to opt-out of the instant personalization experience, after which docs.com will no longer be able to access your Facebook content without you explicitly signing into docs.com via Facebook Connect and granting the service permission. You can also block the application and the instant personalization experience within your Facebook privacy settings by going here.

How does docs.com gain the ability to perform actions on my behalf?

Once you’ve attempted to use some of the more advanced features of the website, docs.com will prompt you for extended permissions. For example, in order to comment on a document, docs.com must have been explicitly granted the ability to post comments on your behalf.

Docs.com has been designed to provide a seamless and secure document sharing experience while also enabling the user to remain in control of what information they disclose to others, including us.

As docs.com continues to evolve, we will notify you on this blog of any changes that might impact such key issues as information confidentiality, disclosure and privacy.

 
Twitter Users Hit by LOL Phishing Attack PDF Print E-mail
IT security and data protection firm, Sophos, has warned Twitter users about a major attack against Twitter users this weekend. The Attack, which seems to be still underway was designed to steal passwords and use hijacked accounts to spread money-making spam campaigns.


The attack began on Saturday with many Twitter users finding that fellow members of the micro-blogging network had posted messages disguised as humorous links. These were nothing but phishing intended links to dubious sites. The messages included natural sounding ones like "Lol. this is me??", "lol , this is funny.","Lol. this you??" and "ha ha, u look funny on here", were accompanied with clickable links which redirected users to a fake Twitter login page hosted on a website based in China.
Sophos has made a YouTube video, which journalists and bloggers are free to embed on their own websites, demonstrating the attack here
According to Graham Cluley, a senior technology consultant at Sophos, the cybercriminals behind the attack are creating a zombie network, or botnet, of hacked accounts that they can then abuse to spread spam, distribute malware and steal identities. He also advises users to change their Twitter passwords immediately if they find sent messages in their outbox that they didn t manually send. Sophos also warns that the links are not passed on just through Direct Messages. These links are also being posted in public feeds which mean that you can stumble across the links even if they are not sent it directly, or even if they are not a signed-up user of Twitter.
 
Create HTML Signatures Right Inside GMAIL PDF Print E-mail
This tip describes how you can create sleek and professional looking HTML signatures for your outgoing Gmail messages right inside Gmail itself without requiring any extensions or add-ons.

Gmail Signature

HTML Signatures for your Google Email

Gmail does support email signatures but the problem is that it limits you to plain text – you can’t add graphics (like your company’s logo) to the signature and there’s absolutely no support for HTML so you can’t use different font styles or colors for the signature text.

There are workarounds. For instance, you can create an email signature in Outlook or some HTML editor and then copy-paste the whole thing to your Gmail message. Or you can get one of these browser add-ons to create rich HTML signatures directly on the Gmail /Google Apps website.

There’s a third-option as well – it’s easy, it’s fun and doesn’t require extensions. Best of all, you can create multiple signatures for the same Gmail account and use them depending on who you are corresponding with.

 

Gmail Signatures Step-by-Step

Step 1: Go to Gmail Settings –> Labs and enable “Canned Responses” as well as “Inserting Images.”

Step 2: Compose a new message in Gmail and create a signature just like you would compose any other email message. Be creative!

You can either upload logos and icons* from the computer or use images that are already on the web. I suggest the former style as that will permanently embed the image into your email signature.

[*] You can find images of icons through Google Image Search. Go to Advanced options under image search and type 12 for height and width (use 16px if you are looking to add slightly bigger icons). While optional, you may also select the filetype as PNG or GIF for transparent backgrounds -- see example.

Step 3: Once your happy with the formatting and layout of your new “HTML signature,” go to the Canned Response menu and Save – give some logical name like “Personal” for a signature that you want to attach to your personal emails.

Now whenever you are composing a new message in Gmail or replying to an existing message, just select the relevant signature from the Canned Responses drop-down and it will be inserted inline as in this screenshot.
