Google Screen Capture -- Extension


Now this is a small Chrome extension worth talking about -- Google Screen Capture.

It's a simple extension on Chrome that sits on your address bar once installed. 
It has basic three features.

Capture Region
Capture Visible Content and
Capture Whole Page

Capture Region open's a screen capture window of 250 * 150 on the window. You can either move that image to your desired screen capture or expand it to fit your size. Once you are satisfied with your selection, you can press OK, which then opens a tab with your selection. On that tab, you can edit the document by adding Color or highlighting a field or image or adding your own text in a few shapes. 

Capture Visible Content captures the visible area on that particular tab. This essentially captures the entire page that is visible to a user minus the menu and address-bar. 

Capture whole page, is a desktop screenshot of the whole page. 

With all three options, you have option to Save, Share, Copy or Close the image. Sharing right now is only possible to SinaMicroblog and Facebook. 

There are few things missing that I would personally would have loved to have -- 
An Undo button for editing. 
Sharing options to be expanded and
Few more options for editing.

So far, I love the free extension which does the job 99% of the time compared to dedicated tools like SnagIt, but it's an extension and it is with me as long as I use Chrome!

1. Codeine and Kids - What can go wrong?

Deep down we all knew the side effects of the painkillers and cough syrup, now the FDA has come out slinging against Codeine and Tramadol. On one hand FDA has decided to come against the painkillers, but on the other hand, it did nothing to stop pharmaceuticals to sell OTC cough syrups and drugs that do contain those chemical elements.

2. Emirates - The problem begins

This was my fear when the current administration signed the executive order to ban tablets and laptops for three middle eastern airlines. How long before the other two airlines cut down the stops in US and concentrate more in Europe and the rest of the world? What it means for passengers? More expensive flights for world travelers. The tourism industry is already hit with anxiety and a lot of travelers are definitely avoiding the hassle to come to thi…

Email is the new Fax

Do you see this picture when you sign-in to your Gmail account? 



I see it every single time I sign-in to Gmail, no matter the speed of connection. At some point this started happening to my Gmail account a year or so back and every time I log-in, it gets bad. Gmail is my preferred account and I have around 10000 emails in my inbox, which is not a whole lot. I love to clean my inbox and organize it as much as possible. All the marketing, forums, registered mails are deleted rather than just sitting there. I had plenty of filters before, but when google introduced 6 tabs, I decided to go simpler and just use the default tabs. It is working well so far, but the lag and that picture still appears every single time.
But this post if not about Gmail or how slow it has become. It's about email and I can positively say that Gmail/email has become less important in my personal life. Last year Google introduced a nice little dashboard service to let you know your email activity for the week/m…

People have a thing for "Bucket List", and that is needed to keep goals in perspective or the things that one wants to achieve in life - but there are times when you want to do nothing. Sometimes being still or to be doing nothing is more fulfilling than ticking a bucket list.

Success isn't always a forward motion.

1. Indian Engineers Unwanted Everywhere - Saucy headline with some truth to it (4 minutes)

This headline caught my attention more than the substance of the article. It is easier to point fingers at others rather than acknowledge the shortcomings of oneselves. Having said that, there is some element of truth to the discrimination that is been witnessed across the globe in the past 3 years with the whole "Nationalism" movement or as liberals call it, towards the "Right Wing" party.
