No matter how advance Project Management and CRM tools can get, no one can ever ditch Google Sheet.

Google Sheet is still one powerful tool that if you know how to exploit the service to your advantage, you know that it's more than just a spreadsheet-editing software.

And if you're using Google Sheet as an additional tool aside from your usual project management service, here's a nifty tip on how to enable email notification so you'll be notified in real-time whenever a collaborator is making some updates on a shared spreadsheet; no need for you to waste time waiting for hours for other collaborators to update the sheet.

Gmail's Addon Streak Lets You Monitor, Track If Emails Are Read, Viewed By Recipients

Enable Email Notification On A Shared Google Spreadsheet

Email notification for Google Sheet is actually a built-in feature, but not activated by default. You have to manually enable it to start receiving email notifications. Here's how:
  • Open the spreadsheet where you want to get notified for any changes.
  • Go to the Tools > Notification rules.
  • In the window that popups, select when and how often you want to receive email notifications.
    • When:
      • “Any changes are made”
      • “A user submits a form”
    • How often:
      • “Email - daily digest”
      • “Email - right away”
  • Hit Save.

You're done. Whenever someone made some changes on a shared spreadsheet, you'll be automatically alerted via email, like this:

You may also need to setup email push notification on your smartphone so that no emails will be missed.

Google Sheet is still my go-to place when it comes to working and collaborating with clients for a specific project. During a website pre-deployment, after the QA, we have a client review phase where a client is expected to inspect and jot down all design & functionality hiccups of a website. While BaseCamp, Asana or Teamwork may be used to collect the findings, I find it a lot time-saver and efficient if I can get a consolidated view of all findings inside a single Google sheet. And now that I can setup email notification, both the client and I can save time.

Ever had a problem syncing your Chrome bookmarks from your Desktop to your iPhone?

Lately, I ran through this trouble trying to sync my Google Chrome bookmarks from my computer to my iPhone (and vice versa). The problem, specifically, was that my newly added Chrome bookmarks on my PC doesn't reflect back to my Chrome on my phone (and even web history, login information, etc). Same is true with my phone's web data; it doesn't appear on my Chrome on my PC.

Access Your Chrome, Firefox Bookmarks On Any Computer Anywhere

From that point I'm sure that Chrome sync is not working. I'm sure as hell synchronizatio" is enabled on my phone. I even tried disconnecting my Gmail account to my phone, reconnecting, and redoing the Chrome syncing process but still no luck! I turned to Google and forums, hunting for possible solution but none of the solutions they offer seemed to work.

And yes it really drives me nuts!

Chrome Bookmarks, Web Data Not Syncing Between Computer and iPhone? Here's the Fix

Until I accidentally disabled Chrome's "Sync Everything" option & selectively turned on the web data that I want to get synced, as seen on the screenshot below. And that did the trick! Pretty neat, huh?

I'm not sure if you're having the same problem as mine but just in case you do, you may want try that out! Hopefully Google will roll out an update for their Chrome for iOS very soon!

Chrome Bookmarks On iPhone Not Syncing Properly? Here's How To Make It Work

UX design company Teehan + Lax has rolled out yet another jaw-dropping web app that lets you create spectacular hyperlapse videos out of Google Maps data.

Hyper-lapse photography is the technique used in creating such stunning videos, which requires a great deal of time and precision to stitch time-lapse photos and sweeping camera movements together -- something that's extremely hard to perfect.

But the guys at Teehan + Lax had managed to make the job simple. Using only Google Street View data as source material, aided with the right tool available, they were able to come up with a very usable, fantastic Google Street View Haperlapse creator.

Google Street View Haperlapse Lets You Create Amazing Journeys (link)

Google Street View Haperlapse is very straightforward to use. All you have to do is to search for location and move around any two transit points in Google Maps, and wait for a couple of seconds until your hyperlapse video gets played. There are also a number of featured trips that are really cool.

Mozilla's Popcorn Maker Lets You Enhance, Recreate Existing Videos from YouTube, Vimeo

As with the conventional Google Street View, you can also pan around the view during hyperlapse video playback. Controls, however, are minimal; there's no way to adjust animation frame rates, and the hyperlapses are a bit faster especially if you span much longer distances from point A to B.

But yes, this experimental app has a GitHub page and so you're free enhance and experiment with things such as custom frame rates.

Google Street View Haperlapse is built with Hyperlapse.js, Three.js (r57), a modified version of GSVPano.js, and Google Maps API v3. This app also requires WebGL and is best viewed in Google Chrome.

New Web App Lets You Create Hyperlapse Videos Using Google Maps Data

Almost everyone has been through this nerve-racking experience before. You are filling out an online form, and it is a long one. Perhaps it is an online Auto Loan or Mortgage Refinancing form. You are finished so you click on the ‘Submit’ button. Only, what happens is that you get an error message, and when you click the 'Back' button, the form is blank. So, what do you do, start over again?

Now you can install a Google Chrome add-on called Lazarus. Simply put, Lazarus saves everything you typed into that form, so if anything should happen, all the data is saved and can be recovered from the Lazarus menu.

Google has finally announced its official Play Gift Cards, joining Amazon and Apple in the gift card game.

The Google Play Gift Cards was first spotted about a month ago in Android Central showing $10 and $25 Google Gift Cards. With the official announcement of its gift cards last August 22, 2012, Google now reveals everything through its Google Play G+ page.

Google has partnered with no less than RadioShack, Walmart, GameStop, and Target. RadioShack, GameStop, and Target are already selling the $10, $25, and $50 denominations in their physical stores, while Walmart will soon be selling them via their official website.

Good news for apps lovers, the gift cards can be used to buy app, games, and in-apps goods as well as books, movies, and music. The gift cards however, cannot be used to purchase accessories, hardware, magazine subscriptions, and Android app subscriptions. Likewise, the gift cards are presently available only to U.S. customers.

Tough luck for those living outside the United States, but, at least good news to American territories like Guam or for those living in Alaska. Google has not yet made any announcements on expansion programs.

Here’s the thing, you’re doing research on the net and you need to take notes. What you’re doing is you’re either switching screens continuously from the website to your notes or you just minimize Microsoft Office Word or Notepad to take notes, which can be very tedious and annoying.

I really find it annoying for social reader apps like Yahoo! to post something on my behalf on my Facebook Wall without me knowing. Every time I read an article on Yahoo!, an update is automatically posted on my Feeds, telling my friends what I just read.

The update made by these social readers usually contains items such as "Freddie just read an article" plus the article link. And this is no cool as you're exactly telling the world your reading habits.

So, how can you prevent social reader apps like Yahoo! from posting on your behalf? Mike Klawrence has this neat solution: Unsocialize, a link unsocializer for Firefox & Chrome.

Stop, Prevent Yahoo! and Other Websites From Automatic Posting On Your Timeline

Unsocialize is a Chrome and Firefox extension that allows you to open articles in a new tab without getting redirected to third-party apps and having to grant them access to your Facebook information. The extension provides a right-click menu item "Unsocialize", which essentially bypasses the install request and any other tracking metrics.

Normally, when you click social reader links especially that of Yahoo!, Facebook takes you to the install app request page, requiring you to give permission to third-party apps. The screenshot below shows an example of what the page looks like.

But with Unsocialize, you can bypass this authorization process, thus preventing social reader apps from posting on your behalf. All you have to do is to right-click on any social reader links, then hit "Unsocialize" (see screenshot below).

Unsocialize is definitely useful especially if you don't want your reading habits to be traced.

Being able to view and manage all email attachments in single manageable place basically means convenience. You don't want to waste your time searching through your inbox for email attachments, right?

Very few simple steps and you should be able to see all Gmail attachments in one manageable place.

While working with other collaborators in our team on a certain web project, I recently learned that uploaded document files that are converted to Google documents format cannot be larger than 2MB. Google Docs seem to protest for any uploaded files/documents of more than 2MB in size, which I believe a big turn off for anyone who wants to get the job done fast.

Here's a sample failed upload prompt from Google Docs. It says "Sorry, this file is too big. We can only convert files up to 2 MB in size.":

Well, obviously there is this file size upload restrictions on Google Docs, and unfortunately there's not such a good web app similar to Google Docs that offers seamless, real-time collaboration at no cost.

Access, Manage All Files Stored Across Multiple Cloud Storage Accounts In One Place

So let's get our head back to Google.

Getting Rid Of Google Docs' 2MB Upload File Size Limits

If you ever found yourself in a complete need to upload large documents, spreadsheets to Google Docs but could not due to file size restrictions, you might find this simple workaround useful. (For more of our Google-related goodies, you can find them HERE).

Alright, here's the trick:

Rather than uploading your large files, spreadsheets and documents to Google Docs, send them all to your own Gmail account. As soon as you receive all the documents, save them to your Google Docs account. Yes, it's really that quick.

Cloud Save - The Quickest Way To Download, Backup Files Straight To The Cloud

Here are the basic steps:

Step 1 Send the document to your own Gmail account.

Step 2 Once received, click on "View". Gmail should launch Google Doc viewer in a separate tab/window.

Step 3 Now, hit that tiny "Save in Google Docs" button at the upper right corner of the viewer. Once done, you should see your newly-added file to your Google Docs collection.

It's quite surprising to note that it takes only Gmail to remove that file size upload restriction in Google Docs. So next time, if you encounter that same Google Docs prompt again, just follow that dead simple Google hacks. Enjoy!

We've waiting for what feels like forever, but the Android contingent can finally carry on with life knowing that at least some things are (semi) fair. Yes, Instagram is now available for Android.

Keeping with tradition, the app itself is free to download, and the outfit seems overjoyed with finishing up what it's (accurately) calling "one of the most anticipated releases on the Android platform to date." It's also clear that the team has done more than a simple port, and while the exact same filters will be found here as on the iOS version, the team has worked to make the app responsive and fluid on Android's vast landscape. We are told, however, that there are a few features that will not be included in the first version of the Android app (Tilt Shift / Blur, Share from Feed, Live Preview and Share to Flickr), but upcoming versions are intended to bridge any differences.

For now, any phone running Android 2.2 or above (with support for OpenGL ES 2) is compatible, but Android tablets are not. There's a maximum resolution support of 2,048 x 2,048, and the company assures us that the "exact same filters and algorithms are implemented on both [iOS and Android builds], so there is no difference in the output other than the raw image quality that differs between phones." Eager to get going?

For some, not every single aspect of Facebook is a complete clean-cut. Taking its Image Viewer as an example, you have to do the wear-and-tear on your mouse; click on every single photo that appears either on your feed, wall or to someone else' gallery to get the sufficient detail of the image. And once a larger version gets displayed, you need to click the tiny Close button again to close the viewer.

Kind of annoying, isn't it?

Thankfully, there is such a browser extension that automatically enlarges, zooms in the photo currently being hovered, making Facebook less of a hassle!

As with other web browsers, Google Chrome records your login information, passwords, sessions and cookies everytime you visit a website. These are bits of information web browsers store and use so that you don't need to re-login and provide the same information all over again when you visit the same website. The feature is useful, but here's the ugly side: anyone who sneak use your laptop/computer can access the same webpages using your login/cookie information. And this is pretty dangerous if the saved web information has something to do with money.

If you don't want this to happen, one best way is to lock and protect your Chrome browser with a password so that no one else can access the internet without your permission.

Astronomical events are fascinating, and shouldn't be missed. So whenever the Earth experiences a total lunar eclipse or a comet is set to pass by the Earth, we always take the time of going outside, armed with binoculars and telescopes, and flock to observatories together with other sky-seers.

This August 26 is another big day -- Comet Garradd is set to pass by the Earth (thru globular cluster M71), so some parts of the world particularly Australia will be able to see that bright “fuzzball” and the luminous tail coming to a view.

Not in Australia? No telescope? That’s not a problem.

Google wants everyone around the globe to get up-close to any celestial events such as the arrival of Comet Garradd this August 26. Google, together with Slooh, has created an online mission interface so anyone can take a glimpse to any astronomical events in real-time at the comfort of their couch. (I’d love to call the project as web-based telescope).

Watch Live Lunar Eclipse, Comets Online – No Need Telescopes

To watch lunar eclipse and comet online without using Ultra Zoom Binocular Telescopes, just visit the official live streaming YouTube channel of Google on the event day. You should be able to see the Moon covering over the Sun or a gleaming comet passing by the Earth.

You can also watch the event live on Slooh’s mission interface, together with narration from astronomers (August 26 event will be hosted by Astronomy Magazine and NPR luminary, Bob Berman). A much cooler way to witness the event is to use your phone as telescope and watch Total Lunar Eclipse live from your Android. Download the Slooh Space Camera Android app and see images from the eclipse/comets on your Android phone.

Why download those files you found on the web when you can just save them straight to the cloud?

When we found something useful on the internet (e.g. photos, videos, MP3s, PDFs, docs, etc.), we normally take the time to download them, save them to our hard drive, and upload them to our online drive. That’s how typical users perform backup whenever they found something great on the internet. But, do you know that you can skip through this process by simply sending those files you found on the web straight to DropBox, Facebook and other similar sites?
