This is a quick tip for all my fellow Android users. Have you noticed that your Android smartphone is always warm to the touch or that your battery life has taken a nose dive? When I was using the Samsung Galaxy S3 as my primary phone, it would often feel warm even when I had [...]

I guess it's no secret that I'm in love with GMail. Earlier this year I posted an article about my experiences switching from my server based email over to GMail for domains. Since then, I've been trying out several experimental features in the GMail Labs area. Today I want to briefly tell you about my [...]

gmail-labels

Yay, my favorite cloud app is getting some new features. I just read on the Gmail blog that instead of having a collapsible label list, that labels are now moving under the Inbox. Don't worry though, you can hide the labels you don't use that often. Which is great if you're like me and have [...]

I finally did it. I have untethered myself from my server based email. It's something I had been thinking about for a very long time, but just never pulled the trigger. Two weeks ago The Gadgeteer server had a hiccup that made everything inaccessible for the better part of a day. That experience of being [...]
