Amazing Facebook Layouts (Themes)

Red Rock Theme

How to install Facebook Layouts (themes)

To install a Facebook layout on Firefox install either the Greasemonkey or Stylish extensions. After installing the one of those 2 Firefox add-ons, restart Firefox, go to a Facebook layout (Theme) page and click the install button on the top right corner.

To install a Facebook layout on Chrome, just directly go to a Facebook layout (Theme) page and click the install button on the top right corner.
For other browsers, before download choose your browser near the download tab and download and install.

Bonus: Auto-Colorizer for Facebook - a Greasemonkey only script which changes the Facebook layout color depending on each profile picture. That means each profile will basically have a different color.

Free Calls via Gmail till 2011 by Google

Just when year 2010 was coming to end, Google has decided to play Santa by extending free Google Voice calling via Gmail till end of 2011. Google Voice acts as voice mail transcription, free local calls, free local SMS, cheaper International Calls and single number for several other numbers - mobile, home, office.
Free calling for US and Canada citizens via Google Voice was destined to end by this year's last day. Back in June, Google opened up Google Voice for all US and Canada based citizens. 

After Apple approved Google Voice App for iPhone, Google released the same for iPad and iPod touch as well. Still Google Voice continued to be available only to consumers in US and Canada. Active effort has been put in to make use of Google Voice wherever possible and recently we saw its integration into Gmail. Post this, a new Call Phone option appears in the Gmail interface based Chat list. Of course, consumers in US and Canada need to have a Google Voice account to reap such benefits.

New Google Search Alerts against Hacked Websites.

Notifications will warn users against web pages that may infect the computer.
On a normal day, you'd visit Google to search about something and click on one of the links in the Search Results. 
But there's no way of knowing if the link you clicked contains malicious code. Last weekend, Google made Search Engine updates live, which includes a new alert feature. From now on the Google Search Results will clearly show notification for hacked websites.

The notice of 'This site may be compromised' helps you avoid the pages that have been compromised with malicious code and spam to attack the visitor's system.

Google Body Browser Flaunts Web3D Tech (HTML 5)

Google Labs has always churned out pretty interested experimental features like Transliteration, Indic Music Search, WalkyTalky, Google Scribe and so on. 
Google has released a new Body Browser experiment that shows a detailed 3D model of the human body in Google Chrome web browser beta. 
Users can view through the anatomical layers of human body, zoom in and navigate to explore the human body parts. 
The new Google Body Browser is pretty commendable for use in a medical education environment. 

Body Browser is supported only by browser with WebGL support. WebGL is a cross-platform web standard for low-level 3D Graphics API exposed through the HTML5 canvas element. This experimental feature lets you identify whether you wish to explore male or female anatomy. Rest is all based on your interests and interactions with the 3D model of a human body.

Facebook to use Face Recognition to Tag Photos

Face Recognition technology developed in-house to group similar faces together and make tagging simpler.

Facebook proudly boasts of getting millions of photos uploaded per day compared to photo-upload and sharing service - Flickr. After uploading hundreds of photos, it becomes difficult to tag all your friends. To make that task easier, Facebook has announced new Tag Suggestions feature that automatically suggests who (out of your contacts) should be tagged in the photo from a group of similar photos. 

This feature makes use of Face Recognition technology to group similar looking faces together. Facebook would be rolling out this feature for US region by next week. 

Popular social network Facebook is one of the most favorite hangout for youngsters and an online junction to connect for many. As of now, tagging multiple photos can be a time consuming task. 
With the new Tag Suggestions feature, thanks to Facebook's Face Recognition technology developed in-house, it will automatically show similar photos to be tagged, as soon as you upload a new batch. This is how it is supposed to work.

Suppose you upload photos of your recent college reunion on Facebook. When you wish to tag them, Facebook will groups similar faces together from the photos uploaded and show them with 'Who is this?' suggestion.
