Mac & Chrome Users BEWARE

I have been a Chrome web browser user since day one of it’s inception. Now I have to go back to Firefox browser.

THE REASON WHY: Chrome supports less and less than other browsers, including its OWN GOOGLE GEARS.

THAT IS CORRECT…
GOOGLE DOES NOT SUPPORT ITS’ OWN SOFTWARE
ON ITS’ OWN BROWSER:
CHROME.

Gears, Docs, Chrome: a nonfunctional combination.

Why?

gmail STOP DON’T SEND just yet!

We have all pushed the SEND button in our email client program and immediately yelled: “NO, STOP”. But of course the email just kept on processing out to that person who is going to be really upset now.

We are talking about sending out those emails when you are not at your best. Those emails that can really piss people off and that you immediately wished you could take back.

NOW YOU CAN STOP THOSE NASTY/MEAN/EMBARRASSING EMAILS…At least you can if you are a gmail user. If not, well, sorry about your luck. Maybe this is the time to switch to gmail.

GMAIL USERS go to Settings and click on the tab:

Scroll down to “Undo Send” and click on the drop down arrow to set the delay time at 30 secs or whatever you desire.

Now if you send out that email that you will regret later IT IS YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT lol.

Google CANNED Signatures

gmail and MS Word

Get better email service

WHAT’S THAT? YOU DO NOT USE gmail? ARE YOU CRAZY???

gmail just keeps on getting better and better and better

AND IT SAVES YOU TONS OF MONEY IN SOFTWARE TOO…

Posted by Marc Miller, Software Engineer @ Google
If you receive Microsoft® Word files as attachments in Gmail, you can now view them with a single click — no need to download, save, and open files with a desktop application when you just want read them. The Google Docs viewer that allows you to view .pdf, .ppt, and .tiff files in your browser now supports .doc and .docx formats too.

Just click the “View” link at the bottom of a Gmail message and the viewer  will take it from there. If you decide you want to edit the file, clicking “Edit online” will open it in Google Docs, or you can download it to your desktop from there.

Why I Don’t Use Hotmail

down with hotmail

Still Using Hotmail? Read on...

Boo: Hotmail & Yahoo Mail

Why?…Read on…

The geeks know that when some says their email is suchandsuch@hotmail.com they cringe and think to themselves this person is stuck back in the 1990’s Microsoft Box.

As you will see below from http://www.webanalyticsworld.net hotmail has lost.

People are dumping hotmail for gmail in massive moves.

One reason is when Hotmail blocks, what it thinks to be a bad attachment for you, it is impossible to open that attachment.

I must admit I am and never have been an Internet Explorer user. Back in the 1990’s I used Netscape and got stuck with Windows Outlook email until web mail came along. In 1997 Microsoft offered Hotmail as a free online email service.

Yes, I did use Hotmail back in the late 90’s but soon switched. I began trying out every email program “out there” and finally landed on Googles free: gmail and have not looked back.

Check out the ratings of Yahoo, Hotmail, and gmail and you see gmail the clear winner:

get gmail the best out there

Get GMAIL: The BEST email available in Cyberspace...

Now this is real news:

Overall we prefer Gmail over all other webmail applications because performance (speed) is consistently fast, and emails can be tagged making search much more effective. They also offer more storage and other features, and it’s free.”

And if you need more:

However, Yahoo and Live Hotmail offer more mainstream Outlook-like user interfaces (although Live Hotmail does not allow you to access other email accounts from their application), whereas Gmail takes some time to get used to. If you are looking for speed and tagging is important, Gmail is for you. If you are looking for the closest thing to Outlook online, go with Yahoo Mail.

Windows “SkyDrive” FREE Storage 25GB

Windows SkyDrive – Works with a Mac or a PC

First off you will need a Windows Live account. YOU DO NOT NEED TO SIGN UP FOR HOT MAIL – I used my gmail account to sign up. This way you are not hooked to Windows “company store”.

Yes you read correctly: Windows is offering free online storage via their new SkyDrive. All you need is a Windows Live account or a hotmail email address to join in on this free service.

Upload, store and share photos and data up to 25 gigabytes worth with no charge.

AND guess what?

You can use this free service on both a Windows PC and a Mac computer.

There is one HUGE downside to this service and that is THERE IS A LIMIT:

Upload size is limited to 50 MB per file.

THIS MAKES THIS SERVICE very limited if you want to save video or music.

Personally, I will pass on this service as my files are larger than 50 MB and if I want to share files larger than this I can use the free sharing service at yousendit.com

HOWEVER it is excellent for students…Check out this video:

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS… remember you DO NOT NEED hotmail.
