Switch to typing in a different language with the click of the mouse, and switch back just as easily. The Google Input Tools extension provides virtual keyboards for over 70 languages, and full IMEs or direct transliteration for over 20 different scripts.

Usage Instructions: 

When you first install the extension, click on the extension icon, then select “Extension Options” in the pop-up menu. A new tab will appear where you can select your preferred languages or input methods. The keyboards or IMEs you add to ‘Selected input tools’ can be enabled at any time from the extension itself. You can always return to this options page to add, remove, or change the order of your input tools.

To use an input tool, simply click on the extension icon, select the desired language tool in the pop-up menu, then click on any text box on the web page. To turn off an input tool, click on the extension icon and select the “Turn Off” option. 

Limitations:

Due to security features of Google Chrome, the Google Input Tools extension will not assist with input in the address bar (omnibox), on the Chrome Web Store, or inside of other Chrome extensions. It does not currently assist with input inside of Flash applications.

Tasker ??? Automate your Android Phone

Tasker is the ultimate Android app. (May be a complicated one also) It creates profiles to automatically change settings, delivers shortcuts, helps manage daily activities, and automates many of the mundane tasks that you attempt to perform each day. All without much effort (other than set-up process).

Tasker uses ???contexts??? to trigger tasks or setting changes. A context could be something as simple as the day of the week, a headset being plugged in, having a certain battery percentage, or entering a certain location.

Once a context takes place, it triggers an action like turning off auto-sync, loading Pandora, or sending a text message to your girlfriend to let her know you???re 5 minutes away. The app features mutli-context and multi-task options that turn this into an more powerful than you may have imagined.

Get Classic Menu and Toolbars in Office 2007 and Office 2010

Ubitmenu-screenshot

Ribbon feature was one of the additions in Office 2007 and Microsoft extended it to Office 2010 (with Outlook 2010 included) with new features. But for people using the old classic menu and toolbars it might take some time to spot the features in ribbon, although we feel that ribbon is much more easier to work than menus. In case you are finding it difficult to work with ribbon menu, you can get back the Classic Menu and Toolbars in Office 2007 and Office 2010 with UBitMenu.

It will emulate / activate the Office 2003 menu in Word 2007, Excel 2007 and PowerPoint 2007 and Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010. It adds a new tab called menu and inside this tab you can see all the old classic style menus available.
