Orkut on mobile

Updated 03/26/2008: Here Orkut has released the mobile version of orkut.. http://m.orkut.com.

You can check,

1) New friend requests
2) Scraps
3) Updates from friends
4) My updates
5) My Profile
6) Friends
7) Search Friends

Pretty decent and serves the purpose.

You cannot yet access your communities or do anything related to communities. If you are using really browser like opera mini, safari on iphone you can use the below given way to access your orkut account and you will get access to everything..

--------------------------------------


The integration of orkut with gtalk does not seem to be so great (at least this isn't the full version).. anyways it just works..

Was wondering if orkut would release a version for mobile... sending/receiving scraps on your mobile.. I searched around and found that they might in fact release something on those lines..

Anyways, before they release you can still access orkut on your mobile.. just point your mobile browser to

Huge Native American face on Google Earth


Here's another weird finding on Google Earth. Somewhere in Alberta in Canada you can spot mountains or large hills that look like the face of an Indian.

It looks pretty real, even a lot more realistic than the face on Mars IMO. It's also pretty big, I used the measure tool in Google Earth to measure the size of the Native American's forehead and its about 225 meters (0.14 miles) long.

You can check it out in Google Maps or just enter 50° 0'38.20"N 110° 6'48.32"W in Google Earth. And like someone in our comment section said, with a bit of imagination you can see he has an earbud in his ear (maybe he's listening to his iPod?)
