First Crush turns up 3 soon

Gosh !! Its hard to believe isn’t it, First Crush turns up 3 soon on the 22nd of December

We have grown from just being known on Orkut to now being known on several other platforms like Google Group, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Technorati, Blog Catalog. Also we are now available across multiple search engines.. so you may go ahead and search ‘music mania first crush’ anytime on any Search Engine such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, and many more to find information about us.

Our Google Group initiative especially has been a great success, we boast of 70 interactive members within the group.. We find it more interesting than having 350 members on Orkut who are hesistant to share. The overtaken our Orkut community to be our prime focus now as it offers us better coverage of our content through Gmail rather than a restrictive one from Orkut

We achieved various feats for the year.. Our Blogs are now ranked within top 3,000,000 in the world, which is an amazing feat to achieve considering that we stood nowhere in the ranking a year ago.

Thanks a lot to everyone who has been a part of making this community successful. Just remember our motto ” STarT SHaring 2 Get NoTiceD .. !!

Google Phone / Nexus One with Android 2.1

@ Review courtesy engadget
Well here you have it folks, honest-to-goodness pics of the Google Phone… AKA, the Nexus One. As you can see by the photos, the design of the device is largely similar to those we’ve seen, but the graphic on back is slightly different, and that piece of tape is covering a QR code (how very Google of them). Just like we’ve heard before, the updated OS features new 3D elements to the app tray, as well as an extended amount of homescreens, though it looks like the lock screen / mute is the same as in Android 2.0.1. Additionally, there’s now a new grid icon at the bottom of the homescreen, which when pressed brings up a webOS card-style preview of all homescreen pages — which raises some interesting possibilities. Apparently there’s been a new software update for the device pushed tonight, and sure enough the phone is identified as the Nexus One on the system info page. Quite clearly this device is running on T-Mobile, and is also using WiFi, so there’s two other questions you’ve got answers to. The phone also appears to come loaded up with Google Navigation (a bit of a no-brainer) and the brand-spanking-new Google Goggles. Hardware wise, the Nexus does look incredibly thin and sleek, and while there’s not a slew of buttons (those four up front are clearly touch sensitive), there is a dedicated volume rocker along the side. Oh, and note this… no HTC logo anywhere to be found. We’ll update the post as / if we get more info, but for now, feast your eyes on the gallery below!
Update: One item of interest. In the packaging there’s a quick start guide which points users to a “questions” page at The page is a dead end right now, but it certainly gets an eyebrow raise from us. If there is a real Google Phone in the offing, that seems a likely landing page for support.

Many people were shocked when back in July this year, Google announced that they were working on an alternative Operating System (the piece of software which gives our computer hardware a soul), dubbed the Chrome OS!  What! Somebody is making Operating System, and it’s not Microsoft or Apple?! That was what’s on many people’s mind.
In one sense though, this shouldn’t be a big surprise for us, because if there is one entity who can challenge Microsoft or Apple domination in Operating System arena, it would be Google.
The most interesting thing about this Chrome OS is that it is based on an Internet Browser (in this case Google’s own Chrome Browser), and that the code will be an Open Source Project.  This means that, like Linux, and unlike Windows or Mac OS, people like you and me would be able to contribute to the development of this Operating System (provided that you understand programming of course).
So, what is Chrome OS? The following video will give you a basic understanding of what it’s all about.
Yesterday, the 19th of November, Google finally announced that they are releasing the Chrome OS to the public!
Here is the video from the Release Event:
And here is the demo of the Chrome OS running:
