Just the other day we told you about a new product from LinkedIn called Intro, in short when you install LinkedIn Intro it adds people’s employment information (via LinkedIn) directly into the Mail app on iOS. So for example, if I were to email you and you had LinkedIn Intro installed on your iPhone or iPad, you would see that I’m the founder/CEO of BestTechie along with the photo on my LinkedIn profile and even a quick way to add me as a connection.
Happy 16th birthday, Yahoo Mail. You know, it feels like just yesterday that Yahoo Mail made its way online. A couple of years later, Google came along with Gmail and its fancy 1 gigabyte of storage, and Yahoo Mail fell behind. It’s now 2013, and the 15 gigabytes that Google offers today for Gmail (as well as Drive and Google+) has just been blown out of the water by Yahoo’s latest announcement: all Yahoo Mail users will get 1 terabyte of storage for their messages and attachments, an amount that can’t be described as [...]
Do you have a pile of junk mail sitting on your counter that you have to sort though? Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone sort through all of your mail and then digitally send it to you on your mobile device? Outbox is changing the way mail is delivered and now San Francisco can start using its services.
Outbox, which launched in Austin, Texas in October, is a mail service that enables you to manage your postal mail like email by scanning your mail, digitizing it, and sending the images to your computer or iPad. Yes, [...]
Many speak as though the death of the United States Postal Service is inevitable; as if the second-largest civilian employer in the United States has been diagnosed with some kind of terminal illness. And maybe it has. Electronic communication increases with each passing day, and private enterprise companies like UPS and FedEx are more than capable of handling parcels. But this belief that, one day, the USPS will cease to exist seems impossible when you consider the impact such a move would have on our nation’s poor.
When you [...]
I may be a little late to the party here, but I just received my invite to test out Alto by Aol. Alto is Aol’s new take on the age-old thing we all use called email, and its actually got some interesting and useful ideas that are well implemented. But is it enough to get people to use the service?
See, the thing about Alto is its more like a wrapping paper over your existing email account than anything else. This isn’t a bad thing, either. In fact, I think it’s a great approach to reinventing email, mostly [...]
With everything in our day-to-day lives having become focused more and more around our connection and utilization of the Internet in the last few years, there’s not a single part of me that thinks Netflix – the online streaming service that started its venture with DVD-by-mail service – would still be around today had they not implemented streaming service over the Internet years ago. Even as someone who doesn’t spend a ton of time watching television shows or movies, I must say that I can really appreciate the [...]
If it’s one thing we have heard about Apple computers it is that they are expensive, can’t be customized and everything is made for someone without a brain. However, Apple in truth provides one of the most customizable and feature rich operating systems currently on the market. In an attempt to redeem the Mac OS I’ve compiled a list of tips tricks and features.
One of the more interesting features about a Mac is it’s unique dock. Applications are placed in the left of the dock to allow easy access to your [...]
Do you use Gmail as a universal email inbox? Or do simply want a nicely formatted email signature? Well, after a lot of waiting, Google has finally made improvements to the signature feature of their web-based email client. These improvements are somewhat basic, but their subtle introduction to Gmail has made the service that much more amazing.
When you access your signature settings from the “General” tab of the “Settings” window, you will probably notice that instead of the plain text box that you used to see when editing [...]
