I remember subscribing to an email list a few months ago because the site was hosting a giveaway. Normally, I don’t mind a few emails a month, especially if they’re promoting something that I’m interested in.
When you work in an office, sending emails all day long can be tedious and boring. Sometimes, you just want to rock out and play your guitar. Well, now you can do both thanks to David Neevel’s email guitar.
The Mailbox app has finally launched on iOS, but before you start jubilating about how clean your email box will finally be, you’d better download it and start waiting, because the wait to use will be long.
Unlike Mr. Technabob and his hundreds of emails a day, I don’t receive that many messages and use Inbox Zero to manage messages, I can check my email only a couple of times a day and still empty it out completely.
If you’re reading this blog, there’s a good chance that you can connect to the Internet on a fairly regular basis. But even with the advent of Wi-Fi and mobile data connections, there are still many places where you won’t have access to the Internet.
Chad Ruble’s mom has aphasia, a condition she acquired because of a stroke that she had 12 years ago. Like many other people with aphasia, Chad’s mom has a hard time reading and writing, so she can’t use email the way the rest of us do.
Before I used the Inbox Zero process, I was often interrupted by the vast quantity of emails that anyone in tech receives. That being said, attaining Inbox Zero actually isn’t that easy and if it doesn’t work for you, you should check out Inbox Pause, a handy little browser extension that will push the pause button on your emails.
Spending the vast majority of my professional life online, I receive an inordinate amount of email messages in my inbox every day. Most days, I get at least 200 to 300 messages, so it’s become very difficult to manage all the stuff flowing through my box and make heads or tails of it all.
For some reason, I always associate email with “You’ve Got Mail,” that old nineties movie that starred Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Their romance was totally based on their virtual and online conversations, and I always remember that little old ding (or was it more like a chime sounding out?) whenever Meg would get an email from Tom.
My dad recently signed up for a country club membership which cost him a whole lot of money and a whole lot of time. I don’t really get the point of club memberships because for one, we don’t really use the facilities much, and two, the food there isn’t so great.
There have been a few different attempts at sending email via good old snail mail, but this is the first that looks promising to me. Snail Mail My Email sounds like an interesting service, and the big difference from other services is that your email is actually handwritten before being sent off.
I honestly don’t care what my Gmail looks like. What I do care about is speed and minimalism. Less is more for me when it comes to email. If that’s not your case, then you’ll be glad to find out that Gmail now offers custom backgrounds for your Gmail accounts.
From the same guy that cooked up the Proverbial Wallets comes a magical drawer that can transport messages to and from the Internet. John Kestner calls his creation the Tableau, and like the Proverbial Wallets, it adds a physical factor to digital processes.
