I’m not sure what people’s fascination with making the email process into anything but email, but apparently Google is on board. Gmail wasn’t bad enough, now there’s Google Inbox. I wonder how long it’ll be before they kill this, too.
If you thought Siri was a gimmicky feature of iOS, think again—you can do more than schedule an appointment, check game scores, and search the web.
Paul over at OSXDaily has posted a simple tutorial to show you how to use Siri to author a complete email without touching the keyboard on your iPhone.
The trickiest part of using Siri is remember the commands necessary to use Siri to do a ton of different things.
Interesting read. I’ve worked for a few companies that tried having an “email-free day,” and even one that tried substituting various web-based messaging services for it. None have worked. Personally, I think it’s because people are too hung-up on sharing & communicating, and tend to procrastinate.
TechCrunch shared some interesting thoughts In Defense of Email.
Add an e-mail to your Reminders list on OS X to ensure that you remember to reply or complete a task. Here’s how.
If you create a lot of HTML emails, you surely spend a lot of time making sure those emails look as good as they possibly can no matter what email client the end-user might have. But you can’t possibly test for them all. Thankfully there is Litmus.
Send Litmus a copy of your email design, either by uploading the HTML or sending a test email. Within a couple of minutes you’ll see screenshots of your email as it’s rendered by all the different email clients. It couldn’t be easier.
To be clear, Litmus is a professional service; it’s not for the casual user. Litmus costs a minimum of $49 per month for the basic service, and goes up to $300 per month for the premium. It sounds expensive, even at the low end, but I don’t know of any professional digital design firms that don’t use Litmus (or a similar service).
Now through Cyber-Monday, HostMonster is offering a discount of $1 off per month of their already low monthly rate for quality web hosting.
For only $3.95 per month, you get everything you need for hosting your website. I’ve been using HostMonster for many years for all the websites I manage, and I’ve been extremely pleased.
As I said, I’ve been using HostMonster for years, and am quite happy with their service. I can’t recall my site or email service every being interrupted, other than pre-scheduled downtime in the middle of the night one or two nights per year. If you choose to use HostMonster for your web hosting, I would appreciate you using the links in this article. I do receive a minor commission from each sale when you use the links.
A cross between Tweetie/Sparrow app for Mac and Pinterest. I have to admit, the author hit the nail on the head with his description of webmail services. They’re an ugly mess, and AOL’s Alto webmail service looks interesting. Great review!
