Google Live Review



This time , is a little review of  Google Wave. I’ve watched the video on the conference of Google Wave demonstration at this page . It is very shock for me in the middle of the preview. What shocked me?? it is OPEN SOURCE !!!

The reason for me to shock is because of the product. I can say Google Wave is something very very interesting for us to use. It is great for any conversation , and also for work. At the first of the demonstration , they said “you will forget that the application you are using  is a browser” and it is true.

What does Google think about wave??

why is it called ‘wave’ ? they define wave as

  • A wave is equal parts conversation and document
  • A wave is shared
  • A wave is live


Google Wave is suitable for our living tasks and also for works. It covers we can use it to

  • group projects
  • photo sharing
  • meeting notes
  • brainstorming
  • and also an interactive games


Why Google Wave is cool ?

1. you can drag and drop stuff like pictures in your browser just like dragging picture in instant messaging program while you are chatting.

2. enhanced spell checker , even can call it word checker. if you type

“ it has bean a logn time for me not eating been soup ” ,

Wave will correct the sentence to

“ it has been a long time for me not eating bean soup ”. 8)

3. easy description of map. while you have conversation , and you want to talk about any places. there is a button for map, where you have to put the place name , and Wave will preview the location we searched. easy.

4. REAL-TIME-CHANGE in Blogger. Let say , if you have dragged a picture in blogger, and you want to edit the name, you can do it in Google Wave and the change will be done on the spot during the editing.

TIMELINE FOR DOCUMENT collaboration!!! – you have a document that can be edited by a group of user. this function will allow us to keep track of the following change of the shared documents.

A REAL-TIME-TRANSLATION when having a conversation with people who is really bad in your language.

(How To) Renaming Partition Volume Label

OS : Ubuntu Linux

I have some trouble when i tried to rename the volume of my disk. after make some study on it, i've found the solution.

1. recognize the disk

sudo fdisk -l

the output should look like this

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xb003b003

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 6375 51200000 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 6385 11570 41649152+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda3 11570 18493 55608997 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda4 18494 19409 7357770 83 Linux
/dev/sda5 6385 11570 41649152 7 HPFS/NTFS

from here , i can recognize which part of my partition i'd like to rename. In my case, i'd like to change the name at

/dev/sda3 11570 18493 55608997 7 HPFS/NTFS

2. Create Directory

now i have to create a new directory inside /media with name partition2

sudo mkdir /media/partition2

3. Edit /etc/fstab

better for us to play safe by creating a backup for the file fstab at any directory. In this case , i choose to place it at the same directory as current fstab file.

cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.old

ps : cp command is "copy" task

open with any text editor, for example gedit.

sudo gedit /etc/fstab

you should see something like this

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# Entry for /dev/sda1 :
UUID=4b5408bd-8826-400b-9456-f58802583f27 / ext4 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sda5 /media/New\040Volume ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

In this case, i am going to rename a partition from /dev/sda3, so i add this line

/dev/sda3 /media/partition2 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

ps : if it is already exist, modify the code. dont worry , you have create the backup.

4. remount the device

sudo mount -a

there you have finish with your task :D
