It was way back in July 2010 that Google gave users of its email service a preview of the interface which was to come in the near future but nobody knew it would take 15 months for the Search Giant to unveil the new aesthetic design. Having said that it is good that they took such a long time rather than go the facebook way who are so inclined to constantly change their interface which obviously has not gone down so well with users(They come back to the site anyways :D)

Just 2 weeks back me and my friend were discussing about the popularity of the applications that were on Facebook and then came an idea of why not create an application which actually finds a lookalike of your face among other facebook users but we don’t have the expertise and the required guidance to actually transform that idea into a reality.
