Gmail getting smarter with smart labels

Smart Labels is the latest attempt by Google to provide its Gmail users with automated features and tools to deal with e-mail overload, a problem that by all accounts is worsening across the board for e-mail users in general.

Once Activated, Gmail will begin to automatically tag certain inbound messages as ‘Bulk’, ‘Notifications’, or ‘Forums’ and handle them accordingly. Notifications includes updates from Facebook, Twitter, Amazon shipping confirmations and other messages that may not be from someone you know but contain important information. And Forums consist of messages from any online message board you may take part in. Messages that appear to be sent as part of a mass mail list will probably be marked as ‘Bulk’ — by default these will skip the inbox, while Forums and Notifications will be kept in the inbox by default.

To enable the new feature, go to Gmail’s Labs section, Search for ‘SmartLabels’ in it and enable the same.    Smart Labels is still optional under Labs for the time being.

India can win the worldcup - just play 10 Batsmen

We have seen our Dhoni and co play in their league games. But nobody is excited about the way they played. Even though they haven't lose a single game yet, the expectations of India winning the cup has come down a lot. May this is a strategy from the team itself to bring the expectations low.

Being Yuvrej the pick of the bowlers we know how our balling department is fairing. Now the situation is that no 300 plus score makes a gurantee of a win. So the batting dept have to score 400 at least for our ailing bowlers to bowl for.How we can take 10 Batsmen in the team...anways batsmen will bowl atleast some where near to the talents of Yuvraj singh.

What you guys think of this? Is there any other way out?
