Bad News: Google kills off free Google Apps

Its very sad that Google is no more providing free Google apps accounts to its users. Not every user use Google Apps from business point of view. Many use it just for family, friends group, some college group etc. They are not using it for any business. Now normal user will have to use those ugly and lengthy email id's which are even hard to remember.

Now Google Apps free account holders are receiving emails like this:

Google Apps customer notice

Hello from Google,

Here's some important news about Google Apps—but don't worry, there's no need for you to take any action. We just want you to know that we're making a change to the packages we offer.

Starting today, we're no longer accepting new sign-ups for the free version of Google Apps (the version you're currently using). Because you're already a customer, this change has no impact on your service, and you can continue to use Google Apps for free.

Should you ever want to upgrade to Google Apps for Business, you'll enjoy benefits such as 24/7 customer support, a 25 GB inbox, business controls, our 99.9% uptime guarantee, unlimited users and more for just $5 per user, per month.

You can learn more about this change in our Help Center or on the Enterprise Blog.

Thank you for using Google Apps.

You have received this mandatory email service announcement to update you about important changes to your Google Apps product or account.

Android SDK Documentation

Android SDK Documentation is the best way to learn Android Programming. This documentation is available online and offline through SDK.

Android SDK download the zip file and then deletes this zip file. If you need that zip file for some other offline use then you can download Android SDK Documentation directly from google with this link. This zip file contains copy of developer.android.com. Extract this zip and open index.html in your browser on any device like PC, tablet etc

Now ADT bundle is available for download from here and other missing components can be downloaded from links given below to save some bandwidth while installing on multiple computers.

Sources: https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/sources-17_r01.zip

Samples: https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/samples-17_r01.zip

Google API: https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/google_apis-17_r02.zip

MIPS System Image: http://d2a85uzpvoidrc.cloudfront.net/sysimg_mips-17_r01.zip

Intel x86 Atom System Image: http://download-software.intel.com/sites/landingpage/android/sysimg_x86-17_r01.zip

Android SDK Documentation: https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/docs-17_r02.zip

These 5 downloads are OS independent and for Android API 17. Just put them in "adt-bundle-linux/sdk/temp/" directory or in "temp" directory of  Android sdk in windows and easily update the ADT on slow internet connection.

Otherwise the whole adt-bundle (eclipse+sdk) can be compressed and can be transferred from one PC to other having same operating system. It will save downloading time and bandwidth specially on slow internet connections.
