BloggerIf you access any of the Blogger hosted blogs from India, Google will automatically redirect you to the corresponding blogspot.in address.

To give you an example, if a blog’s address is abc.blogspot.com and you try opening that page from an IP address in India, Google will send you to abc.blogspot.in. A similar redirection is happening for individual article pages as well.

Original page: http://abc.blogspot.com/page-name.html

Some Google projects really do start from one person hacking around. Last summer, an engineering intern named Pieter Senster joined the mobile advertising team to explore how we could display Flash animations on devices that don’t support Adobe Flash player. Pieter made such great progress that Google hired him full time and formed a team to work on the project. Swiffy was born!

Today we’re making the first version of Swiffy available on Google Labs. You can upload a SWF file, and Swiffy will produce an HTML5 version which will run in modern browsers with a high level of SVG support such as Chrome and Safari. It’s still an early version, so it won’t convert all Flash content, but it already works well on ads and animations.

Lets see what happens:

When we translate “Suresh Raina Is God” from English to Serbian Language we get the translation:

Suresh Raina Is God - English To Serbian Translation


But when we translate back we get : “Sachin Tendulkar is God

Serbian To English Translation

Isn’t it funny. ?? Yes it is. Lets see why this happens
