Google continues to inspire and amaze. The Mountain View, California-based company unveiled yesterday the ability to read and compose Gmail while offline. It’s available through the Google Labs feature within Gmail and when activated, starts downloading 10,000 emails to the user’s hard drive using Google Gears technology. Once finished, you’ll be able to search for emails and read them, as well as compose emails to people in your address book. And yes, your contacts will auto-complete even when offline.
Of course, some things will not be available when offline, such as the ability to manage your contacts. All you need is a ‘net connection and you’ll be able to sync your email, keeping you in touch with that woman you’re having an affair with. Ah, Google. Paving the way to Heaven through technology.
