Yahoo Email Now Has Facebook Updates

Posted in Yahoo by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2011

Yahoo has updated their email with the ability to tweet and post Facebook status updates. Now you can do it all from your email, well not all, but more. Should be convenient for Twitter and Facebook addicts. There’s also a new 100 MB attachment limit, which is pretty nice.

Good move by Yahoo. I would have expected Gmail to do this first. It’s not a feature I care about much but some will really love this.

Google Smart Labels helps you sort your email

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2011

Google has announced a new way to automatically sort out the mail in your Gmail account, with Smart Labels. Gmail already lets you create your own labels if you want to label your mail, but if you want it done automatically Smart Labels will do the job. You get 3 new labels in all: Bulk, Forums and Notifications.

Gmail will detect which emails fit into those categories and label them accordingly. Emails labeled Bulk are things like newsletters and promotions, while Notifications are account statements and receipts. Forums are group mailing lists that you are subscribed to. Pretty simple stuff. If a message doesn’t get labeled correctly, you can fix it and even tell Google so they can improve the system.

Facebook unveils new messaging service, says email is ‘too formal’

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2010

Facebook has just announced an updated messaging service that promises to take social networking activity to a new level. You get to decide on how you want to ‘converse’, through SMS, chat, email or Messages. They will receive your message in a real-time conversation, with no need to worry about which recipient prefers chatting over email etc.

Users will also be able to own an @facebook.com email address. There will not be a subject line though and you can’t mass forward mails among others, keeping things limited to just conversation. Messages and email addresses will be launched over the next few months.

Mysterious email sent from 1969 haunts iPhone 4 users in 2010

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on July 19th, 2010

Here’s some more iPhone 4 drama. A mysterious software issue has been haunting some users. It’s otherworldly and all spooky like. There’s a bunch of discussion on the Apple forums about blank email messages appearing on the iPhone that can’t be deleted. The date that appears on those messages is December 31, 1969.

Almost as soon as iOS4 became available, some users began seeing these emails appear in their MobileMe or Gmail accounts with no sender, no subject, and no content. The date on the messages was shown as 12/31/69, but some users saw 1970. No big deal really, except that these unwelcome hippies who are emailing well before their time can’t be deleted permanently.

iPod touch FaceTime to use email addresses?

Posted in iPod Touch by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2010

We figured that the next iPod touch would get in on Apple’s FaceTime video-calling action, but how will calls be initiated without phone numbers? Well, BGR has the scoop. It will all be based on email addresses. Registering an email address with the touch and FaceTime will let people videocall you using that email address

However when you call an iPhone user it will still involve the phone number. BGR thinks that the email-based system will be extended to the phone eventually too, which I guess makes sense.

It pays to get that pre-order in. The email from Apple to all iPhone 4 pre-order customers is below:

Mail E: Papercraft Wall-E checks your email

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on September 17th, 2009

Mail E: Papercraft Wall-E checks your emailWe don’t know why this guy needs a papercraft Wall E on his desk to let him know when he gets an email, but we approve wholeheartedly. This papercrafted “Mail E” is actuated by three 9g mini-servos and controlled by a SD21 servo driver and a picaxe 18x.

The head and hand move to alert you and if he can add wireless connectivity, he’ll let it move of the desk and have Wall E make certain gestures to mimic the kind of email that he has received. Pretty cool. Check out a video below.

Google Wave: Like chat, IM, Twitter and Google Docs in real-time

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on May 28th, 2009

Google WaveGoogle wave should be making waves in no time. Think of it like a live chatroom with a spread of documents, photos and/or videos, where you can reply to any part of any message or anything that’s shared, and it all operates in real-time. Basically TMI.

It’s a combination of Twitter, IM, Friendfeed and other service with semi-real-time stuff. In Google Wave, you can share and collaborate on projects, and all of this is going on at once. Probably great for those with ADD. You start a wave with any message or photo or whatever, and you bring people into the stream, and then they can bring people in.

iLane lets you speak to your inbox

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2009

iLane lets you speak to your inboxiLane is a small black box introduced by Intelligent Mechatronic Systems Inc. It’s designed for people who can’t live without their e-mail and spend most of their time on the go. Gadgets that read and speak text are nothing new, but they have been in the news more recently. Like Amazon’s Kindle 2, which reads books, and the iPod shuffle, which speaks a song’s title out loud.

iLane is only working with Blackberry right now. The device lets you know what’s going on in your inbox through a wireless Bluetooth earphone. Your voice will be sent via an MP3 attachment, rather than being converted to text. It will also read your emails to you.

iLane reads emails and text messages aloud for drivers

Posted in hands-free by Shane McGlaun on November 24th, 2008

iLaneOne of the most frightening things I ever say was a teen girl driving through my neighborhood, on the wrong side of the road, sending a text message. It’s not only a problem with teens, according to a study lots of adults drive and send or read email as well.

The study was commissioned by IMS Inc and found that the main reason adults cite for reading and sending email while driving is pressure to keep up with personal life without making the boss mad for doing it at work. The catch is that reading or sending email while driving is dangerous.

“Tinkling”: Smart Wind Chimes concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2008

“Tinkling”: Smart Wind Chimes conceptMost people either find wind chimes charming or annoying. You either love them or you hate them. Well, I’m not sure if this update to the classic noisemaker makes things better or worse. Korean designer Lufdesign has a new spin on chimes. The concept is called Tinkling, not to be confused with your favorite bathroom pastime. No, this tinkling is different. The chimes aren’t set off by the wind, but when you receive a digital message via email, voicemail or SMS. It’s blowing tail will change color and a message is displayed across the embedded screen.

Obviously, they would need to be wireless for this to work and you would place this inside as opposed to outside. Or both. Why not annoy the birds every time you get an email? I suppose the idea is that you can wander inside and outside of your home, while never missing that important message. I personally like this a whole lot better then chimes activated by wind. At least you can turn these off.


A sneak peek at the Peek handheld

Posted in email by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2008

A sneak peek at the Peek handheldYou might remember the Peek handheld email device we showed you last week. It looks like a Blackberry and keeps it’s nose to the grindstone, doing only email, nothing but email and still more email for $20 a month.

It’s not going end up in the hands of most gadget lovers, but considering the demographic they are aiming for, it could do well. Laptop mag had themselves a peek at the device and are claiming that it’s simple to use. They really liked the soft keyboard and talk about how it can be tucked away anywhere thanks to it’s thinness, which ought to make grandma happy. Until she loses it.
