N8 will have added features like the new Symbian 3 software and it looks like the Motorola Devour and has a 3.5-inch OLED, capacitive touch screen, a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and a large sensor that rivals those found in compact digital cameras and HD-quality video with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound by plugging into home theatre system.
It consist all of the fun things like access to Web TV services that deliver programs, news and entertainment from channels like CNN,  Entertainment, Paramount and National Geographic.

The N8—a bar-raising, iPhone-sized device the truly exceeds any of the handset maker’s previous offerings.
For one, the N8 is the first Nokia phone to run the Symbian 3 platform, which brings with it gesture support for things like multitouch, flick scrolling and pinch zooming. Second, there’s also a 12-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens, as well as the ability to capture and edit—on device—high-definition video footage.
Thirdly, Ovi Maps, for free walking and driving navigation, is included, and (benefit No. 4) so are the types of social networking perks that top the feature lists of most phones. Along with the N8, Nokia has introduced a new software environment called Qt—which, in beta form, is now available to developers.
Social networking is second nature to the Nokia N8. People can update their status, share location and photos, and view live feeds from Facebook and Twitter in a single app directly on the home screen. Calendar events from social networks can also be transferred to the device calendar.
Last week Nokia cut its profit outlook and said the sales start for phones with Symbian 3 was delayed to the third quarter - sending its shares sharply lower. Nokia lacks a top-range model to challenge Apple's iPhone three years after its launch.
It will go on sale in mid 2010 and retail for $493, excluding subsidies and taxes. The Indian price for N8 will be around 23000 INR.

Opera 10.52 released for Mac platform.

One of the most popular web browsers, Opera, released its new stable version for Mac OS. Market leaders such as Firefox and Internet Explorer will be facing real competition from Opera now. But Apple’s own product, Safari, is the most used browser on Mac platform.
The new Opera 10.52 is claimed to be 10 times faster than the Opera 10.10 version. So Firefox and Chrome for Mac already have a tough competition in terms of speed. Opera 10.52 features native Cocoa integration, multi-touch trackpad gestures support, and Growl notification support.
Opera has built the new 10.52 web browser on native Cocoa framework and hence it appears to be more responsive. New 10.52 version brings along HTML5 Video and SVG support. Also the new Carakan JavaScript engine and new Vega graphic library play a major role in boosting the speed of this browser.

Another exciting feature for Gmail, drag-and-drop your attachments!

 Another exciting feature from Google, and now it is for Gmail, the most popular email service over the internet.
New Gmail feature, which it claims will offer a quick and easy way to add attachments and related media to messages.
Chrome and Firefox 3.6 users can now drag-and-drop files into the email body when attaching them. This replaces the usual method of clicking the 'attach a file' option, and will be helpful for users who already have the associated folder open and a number of files to attach.
"Suppose I want to attach some files to an email, and I already have a folder open containing those files. I used to have to click 'Attach a file', find the photos, click them, etc. [Now] I can just drag and drop the files to attach them," said Google software engineer Adam de Boor in a blog post.

How does it work?
 Just login to your gmail account from Firefox or Chrome, and select compose email. Now, select any photo or document from your hard drive, drag and drop it into Gmail’s compose window.
 But, for sure, it won’t work with any version of Internet Explorer! It seems Google intentionally excluded IE from this feature, in order to drive IE users to their own product , Chrome.

Facebook: How to see old wall posts quickly, rather than pressing ‘Older Posts’ several times?

Update: Facebook Timeline is here! You can scroll down through the timeline and find out your posts and photos that you have added months and years back. Click here to learn how to enable timeline. 
Are you a regular updater of Facebook Wall? And are you so old in Facebook joined at its earlier years? Then, It could be always interesting to see the old posts that you have put in your facebook wall, I just made an attempt to fetch those posts, but clicking the ‘older posts’ arrow in the bottom of your wall will be of course a hectic task. It is really painful to do that, see a comment from a Facebook user:
“But to go that far, you'll have to keep pressing. I know that's such a pain. I wish they could fix it, but you'll have to keep doing that again and again.” 

So is there any short cut to see my older posts? Unfortunately, Facebook doesn't provide any official tools to find out the older posts, and there is no any better shortcut to see your older posts very quickly. I googled it many times, but didn’t get a proper solution.  

But Facebook is keep on changing every day, and hopefully they will soon add a feature for the quick view of the old posts, just like searching the posts by date. 

Try the below tip other than pressing ‘Older Posts’, which may help you eliminate scrolling though some unwanted contents. 

Click on your profile and open up your wall (as if your friends see your wall), click on ‘Options’ on top right. Now you will get an option that looks like as in the blow picture.
Select only your name, now paste the below Java script on the address bar and hit enter, this script will press the 'Older Posts' button every four seconds, so keep the browser window free. Scroll down and check after few minutes, you can see all the older posts displayed. 


javascript:function clrt(){alert('Stopped Post Load');if(f_sM){clearTimeout(f_sM);}};function showMore(){ProfileStream.getInstance().showMore();f_sM = setTimeout(showMore, 4000); xsm=document.getElementById('profile_pager_container');xsm.addEventListener('click',clrt,false)}; showMore(); 

If you see your old post which you are looking for is already visible, just press on the blue area of 'Older Posts' tab, so you can stop the script. 

 Hope this helped you. But if you know any better idea to fetch out older posts so quickly, please posts it below in the comments.
