Access Gmail Offline
On enabling offline access, Gmail will load in your browser even if you don't have an Internet connection. You can read messages, star, label and archive them, compose new mail and messages ready to be sent will wait in your Outbox until you're online again.

It's built on the Gears platform, which has already been used to offline-enable Google Docs, Google Reader, and other third-party web applications
To get started with offline Gmail -

- Sign in to Gmail and click 'Settings'.
- Click the 'Labs' tab and select 'Enable' next to 'Offline Gmail'.
- Click 'Save Changes.'
- In the upper righthand corner of your account, next to your username, there will be a new 'Offline' link. Click this link to start the offline synchronization process.

Standard Edition users can follow these instructions immediately, while Premier and Education Edition users will first need their domain admins to enable Gmail Labs from the Google Apps admin control panel.
Google postpones $10m fund decision
Google has put off naming the finalists for its Project 10^100 competition after being swamped with entries. 

Announced in September 2008, Google's project will offer prize money to people with ideas for making the world a better place, so the ideas can be realised. 

A decision about the finalists was initially going to be made on Tuesday this week but has now been extended by several weeks to deal with the high number of entries. 

"Because of the sheer number of ideas we received, we were unable to compile the list of finalists in time for our 27 January target and will have to push back that announcement to 17 March," Google's Andy Berndt said. 

The competition was inundated with 150,000 entries when it opened to markGoogle's 10th anniversary

There is a prize fund of $10m (about £7.1m) which will be split between five winners. 


Google Gears comes to Gmail

Yea, verily, Google brought Gears to Gmail today, meaning you can (finally) go through downloaded emails without a handy internet connection. There are caveats: spellcheck won't work, can't add attachments, pretty much anything that would require a connection won't be there. Reading, responding, starring and labeling do work, however, which is very cool. But hey, don't take my word for it.  Click on the heading of this topic for video explaining.
