Admittedly not directly related to healthcare information systems, I personally don't know very many people who go oneline and don't use Google's search engine. Although I'm the first to admit there is no other search engine nearly as capable as Google that I'm aware of it, I try to avoid using it if all possible because I find some of the company's business practices suspect, arrogant, or both. Also, many of their products - from Gmail to Google Talk - are honestly pretty mediocre. While I give ...
From the Gmail Page...Kind of corny, but cute at the same time... This holiday season,we hope yule log-in to Gmail. Here's to making our world a little smaller, a little warmer,and to bringing all our friends and family a little closer. Happy Holidays from the Gmail Team ...
Google recently release Gmail Mobile, a version of their browser targeted at mobile phones. Those of us with Microsoft smartphones or PocketPC phones have already had this functionality for some time, via Gmail Basic. With the introduction of Gmail Mobile, quite a bit of functionality in the basic view was lost. The mobile view isn't all bad, it renders faster due to it light weight, but it chops messages into pages, which is frustrating, I would rather wait for the load time and read the whole message. ...
I've long been a fan of using Exchange 2003's OMA to get my Corporate email on my SmartPhone but now Google has formally released their Mobile version of Gmail at m.gmail.com Along with this I have also signed up with Bloglines as they also manage to recognise the small form factor of the SmartPhone so this leaves it nice and simple for me to now keep up to date with my Corporate and Personal email as well as my RSS Feeds when on the go. Give them a try, I don't think you'll regret it ...
To some the whole idea of Google going mobile is a bit of a shock. To me it is a logical step. What things do we have with us at all times to access data anytime, anywhere, anyplace... that would be our mobile phones. Here in the UK the majority of people own at least one mobile phone. (Some of us have at least one...) The question is why don't other companies utilise this statistic and provide data to this relatively untapped market. Years ago I wondered when the message to mobile stuff would start ...
Gmail atom feed allows you to display your unread email messages using any rss reader control. Its pretty sweet! Check out the link below to read your unread email. https://mail.google.com/mai... powered by IMHO ...
Yesterday I had some problems with sleeping, so, I thought I should do something useful. I opened my browser and favourites and my Gmail box and started typing to my MCAD course group and my close friends. I think I should put that here - after removing some parts of course! ;-) Lets start... Remember all the hussel online about AJAX stuff ? Maybe some of you have already got a book written about it. Some might have got into the whole ATLAS ? thing. Now I come to give you some more stuff I think ...
So Google has already launched Google Base which is said to be an eMarket like eBay (screenshots are already available on the web posted by those fortunate enough to log in for once); apparently Google seems to follow SSO (single sign-on) :-) and therefore your Gmail account should be able to log you in. MS also seems to follow the google foot prints and they have their showcase up @ http://sandbox.msn.com. Start.com application seems to be the most interesting product from the showcase typically ...
Official Google Blog: Rumor of the day Dig for this on the web Wow. Not only is this google’s awnser to http://www.craigslist.org/ , but it looks to be much much more. Since the very first days of the web, people have always strugled to find places to put all their stuff online. Its only the more technicly savvy, or well-connected that seem to be able to host their stuff online, and with good bandwidth. Google could change all that. Upload anything (within the limits of legality and the EULA ...
What's New in Gmail? Lots! One of the features I (and lots of others apparently) requested is the ability to customize the FROM address used when I send email from my gmail inbox. This really expands the power of gmail, and allows me to use it to manage email from all of my domains. Now I have configured all of my incoming mail in all of my personally owned domains to forward to my gmail account. I have defined gmail filters there to label and archive these incoming messages into different labels ...
'Benefits of having Project Management Professional Credential' a scenario based hypothesis The scenarios are worked out with the following assumptions; The PM is handling a project of this nature(size, complexity, distribution) for the first time The project is critical No special training on professional project management is provided to the project manager The organization do not have documented project guidelines for the project manager to refer to Scenario 1 – project initiation You are ...
Completely off topic in that it has nothing to do with technology, but...... Do not get put off by the temperatures - it is so dry that 38C in Luxor is comparable to 30C in London Very Cheap - you can eat superbly in the 5 Star Hotels, having a 3 course dinner for less that £15 The food in the 5 star hotels is great - in some cases every bit as good as the top London Restraunts We spent 4 days crusing on the "Nile Beauty" (5 Star Boat) - Fantastic!! But back on topic...... while crusing the ...
There are many times when I have wanted to share a large file with friends or co-workers. The first attempt is usually through large e-mail accounts such as GMail or Yahoo!. The second is a physical transfer between USB drives or blank CDs / DVDs. The third is FTP. The third option is also usually the best becuase it is the least amount of direct involvement on my part. So why is it third? Well for exceptionally large files I can't use my hosting provider. Bandwidth is money and eventually I will ...
Google Talk is just another IM client, including voice. The difference between Google Talk and other IM clients appears to be that you are required to have a Gmail account to use this one. So the Beta that this is doesn't really offer any revolutionary new stuff, but I'm sure the Google Team has a few aces up their sleeves. If they don't, why did they even bother creating Google Talk in the first place? (hint: right now, GAIM gives you much more versatility and agility) ...
I really don’t see what the point of Google Talk is. Unlike GMail it is just another IM client to the already cluttered domain of IM clients. Nothing really innovative there, or at least not yet. But for those of you who are like me and are side stepping all of these IM clients by using something like Trillian (or Gaim for that matter) ForeverGeek has a post showing the Jabber settings used by Google, so if you are on Trillian you can get the Jabber plug-in from here. Update: Google themselves ...
I can't emphasize enough the usability of Google's products. I'm pushing GMail everyday. I was a HMail user for years, but had enough of the ads and useless navigation on their website. When they took away the OExpress access I was completely through. Now I'm using the Google Desktop Beta and am happy with this APP too. It's not very innovative, but once again is best in usability. If only Google and Apple could work together... .
I was recently going through a nice list of Gmail Tips maintained by Jim Barr, it has a lot of useful tips out of which tip 25 tells you how you can create a label named "Unread" which automatically displays all the mails which are not yet read by you (not just in inbox or just in one label, but in your full email account). But when I tried creating such a label gmail didn't allow me, so I tried creating a label named "Unread2" and then tried renaming it to "Unread" ...
google talk is out. i have it. but my contact list is notably absent of contacts. guess i need to add some gmail contacts now. my first "gut reaction" to the application is that its pretty cool. i like that skype-like service is built into the framework. i'd like to try that out today with a headset. i'll post again later after i've had a chance to see the thing in action ...
Update [26th Aug 2005]: Google has given the configuration details for third party applications in their help center. Have fun. Happy happy!! Google has entered the instant messaging race as well. I downloaded the Google talk client and instantly logged in to my account, only to remember that I don’t have any of my friends online on this network yet. So, an alternate would be to download a Jabber-compatible client which also supports other IM networks like MSN and Yahoo! I choose GAIM, it is ...
The new beta of Google Desktop is available and it’s pretty cool. This version incorporates a “sidebar” style layout for your feeds, e-mails, to-do lists, weather, etc. While it’s not as pretty as some other sidebar programs, like DesktopSideBar (freeware), it is Google and we all like their stuff. At the very least you should check the new version out. On a side note if you sit behind an ISA Server be sure and open up POP3 Secure to your machine or else the indexer cannot ...
Seems GBs of free space is no longer a news, hriders.com provides 1 TB of free email space. hmmm, hopefully someone will make use of those space and will let us know if thats for sure a 1 TB. As of now I have ample free space and too many email accounts to manage. So I am happy with Gmail itself. Incase anybody is making use of this, do let us know about your experience.
Not long ago (I’m talking days here) I watched a Channel 9 video of Sanaz Ahari and Steve Rider - Start.com where they talked / demoed the start.com/3 project. This project is part of the MSN “Sandbox” Honestly, it’s pretty neat. A drag and drop start page rich with RSS support, collapsible sidebars etc. it makes for a cool experience. If you want to skip the silly trivia questions and get right to the site is is at www.start.com/myw3b. When you check it out be sure and click ...

Is it just me or has Gmail been acting up quite a bit over the past week or so. I find that I often get a temporarily unavailable message from the Gmail Notifier and half the time I try to log in I can't.

Is anyone else experiencing these problems? Apparently there are others out there...

Gmail seems to not allow files of type extension .exe, .dll and so on which are executable. This is a reasonable step towards cribbing virus, but what about users who want to trade .net libraries? Well, initially I thought we can put in the needed files in a zipped format and then send them. That seemed to be a failed effort as gmail seems to scan inside the zip file contents. Next I tried to encrypt the zip file and then send it as an attachment, it also failed as gmail was able to enumerate the ...
If you have been following my earlier blog, you know that I am Sunil Jagadish, a Microsoft Student Ambassador, pursuing Master of Computer Applications in RV College of Engineering (RVCE), Bangalore.. As I mentioned in the last post on Dotnetjunkies.com, comment spam succeded in forcing me to say “Good Bye!” to Dotnetjunkies. [listening to Hotel California (Eagles) as I type this...] If you search through the archives of most of the technical blogs and look for the first post, you will ...
I was having a nagging feeling that I am not making use of the GMail's space that's allocated to me effectively. Thats when I came across GMail Drive which allows you to use your GMail space as a virtual online storage medium. The creator had mentioned that the program breaks whenever GMail makes modifications, but the when I checked with latest version it was working fine. Just to make sure, I had written to gmail support asking them if this particular software is allowed to be used along with their ...
The press was effusive when Gmail came out with a <gasp!>1 GB</gasp!> limit. They just spewed all over themselves when Yahoo! matched it. They choked when Gmail went to <gasp!>2 GB</gasp!> of space. Since then, Google has been slowly increasing personal allocation. Of course, since Gmail is not yet at the next (psychologically significant) whole number <gasp!>3 GB</gasp!> barrier, the press is silent. This morning, my Gmail inbox holds this line: You are currently ...
Here are a couple of interesting links that came my way today. 1. Internet traffic analysis by NETI@Home done by the Georgia Tech University. I guess this is a cause thats a bit more down to earth than SETI@Home 2. C# Gmail API & Stuff ...
Necessity Is the Mother of Invention! MUGH CORE MAILING LIST IS NOW POWERED BY GMAIL ! Flashback(u can skip this part): NECESSITY: " Now u might hav heard of gmail being used as gmail drive and many other things. but this is kool (my ideas are generally kool, LOL) a couple of weeks ago our ( mugh core ) mailing list software crashed! we were using an opensource tool that is installed on to ur server cleans all spam and only delivers mails from and to the members of the mailing list. it was the time ...
I think .TEXT/CS:Blogs needs a better UI for administration. The reason I say this is because fighting comment spam/blog trolls and managing posts is not optimal. For instance if I were to delete one wanted comments from a post one way of doing it right now would be to login to the administration section, then click on the feedback section which shows you all the feedback on your blog. So here are the problems I see with it There is no option for sorting, grouping or filtering comments. Ideally you ...
Did you know you can set your homepage in Firefox to multiple URLs, each of which open in a seperate tab? This may be one of the coolest things I've found yet. Go to Tools : Options : General Under the Home Page section, click on 'use current pages' and it will set your homepage to whatever pages you have open in your various tabs. If you're like me (you are, aren't you?) and use multiple webmail services, such as hotmail, gmail and my work OWA, I can set all three as my home page. Each in a different ...
You don't really have just 1GB on GMail anymore....Take a look at what I have right now.... You are currently using 787 MB (38%) of your 2053 MB Quoted from GMail's new feature list: G is for growthStorage is an important part of email, but that doesn't mean you should have to worry about it. To celebrate our one-year birthday, we're giving everyone one more gigabyte. But why stop the party there? Our plan is to continue growing your storage beyond 2GBs by giving you more space as we are able. We ...
Today I am at a customer again, for whome I had set up their first network and domain, based on Microsoft Small Business Server 2003.They have called me in today to solve some of the 'critical errors' their SBS server is giving them. Because they seem to be pretty generic, and probably common errors, I thought a ITT blog post might be cool, so I will be formating this post as a kind of 'dairy' of the day.(The SBS installation is in Dutch, so I am forced to traslate errors ad-hoc, I try to name by ...
I never thought that I would have to do it, but I shut down comments on my Gmail post and removed it from syndication. People got completely out of control with wanting Gmail invites. The ME TOO! cries were mostly from India, but there were others as well. I got tired of the inbox spam feeling. If you need a Gmail account, just wait. They will open it up again. I have no invites available. Update 1: See the comment below for what I mean ...
I just received the premiere issue of Make Magazine from O'Reilly yesterday. Let me just say this mag is a geek's dream come true. It's not a magazine about coding. Heck, I'm not sure if calling it a magazine is even accurate. It's more of a journal or zine (but with higher production values). A geek quarterly, if you will. For example... the premiere issue features an article on aerial photography. Not geeky enough for you? Ok, how about aerial photography accomplished by rigging up a camera to ...
This is probably all over the net by now, but I just stumbled on the Google Blog (actually I look at it every day) Google Toolbar 3 Beta was just released SpellCheck: Whenever users type into a web form (including web-based email, discussion forums, and intranet web applications), SpellCheck instantly reviews and suggests corrections. The AutoFix option enables users to automatically check and correct all the text they're entering with one click. AutoLink: Whenever users see a U.S. address on a web ...
Like a lot of people, I have a lot of Gmail invites to give away. If you want one, just send me an email kdjones74@gmail.com.
Robert Scoble points to Joe Wilcox's article on Microsoft riding on the beta train. My say on this is, beta software are good. Here are my thoughts on them. Mind you I am no software developer or anything. I am just a end consumer most of the times who loves to try on new things and recommend it to people from time to time when they are looking for solutions. So forgive me developers if I don't understand your so called 'software development cycle'. Beta software helps out to fix initial bugs as ...
After listening to a few conversations and a discussion I had with a recruiter today, I can’t help but wonder if client-side scripting will be the hot topic of choice for this year. I know it has been around since early versions of web browsers, but let me explain. If you’ve been watching Google, you know that they have released several new projects that go beyond simple web applications. Notably, there was Gmail. If you haven’t already heard, Gmail is Google’s free e-mail ...
I Installed MSN Toolbar suite a few days ago, and I just noticed today that I'm not using it, actually I spent more time to configure it (and there aren't that much configuration options), than the time I spent searching with it. I continue to use Google desktop all the time. Why? well I can think of quite a few reasons. 1. For some reason the MSN Deskbar on my computer is flickering all the time (the buttons are blinking constantly) - which annoyes me to the the point that I turn it off, therefore ...

Does anybody experience the same issue as mine? I got some e-mails with attachments. However, I cannot open the attachment since there are no attachment links available. I can see the attachment and full message via GMail POP3 though. But the problem is POP3 doesn't work very well either since it seems to stop or disconnect e-mail client before finishing the download.

Updated: It seems that the problem has been fully fixed.

Well I have been a bad blogger. I have been so busy with work, I haven’t had time to blog =(. I promise that I will blog more. I have finally got a gmail account. Thanks to the people who gave me invites. I have been thinking of making my own skin, Jeff you better install it after I do all that work. Anyways got to head to bed and no I will not blog about the MSN Space because everyone else is.

Derek Hatchard tells us about the new Atom feature of GMail. It seems that https://gmail.google.com/gm... is a way to aggregate to your email. If you are like me and got a few GMail names with your invites, then you probably know the pain in the butt that it is to check multiple GMail accounts. If you use an aggregator like RSSBandit, they protect you from subscribing to the same feed more than once, but if you concatenate a querystring on the https://gmail.google.com/gm... url ...

Gmail has already been offering Pop3 access to its GMail account while Hotmail just stopped doing it for free.

Update: To find how to configure POP3 with GMail, you need to login to Gmail and go through GMail POP3 help in help page.

Gmail has recently added POP3 services to their free email accounts. This would allow someone to use gmail without ever seeing any of their advertisements. They are also providing SMTP, both POP3 and SMTP are forcing the use of SSL/TLS. Very interesting...now where's IMAP and what's the catch?

It's being phased in, though, so not every gmail account yet has POP access.

Is it just me or are any of you noticing this Gmail error too?

Have a GMail account and want to use it simply for backup? If so, check out this tool I just found. Note: I haven't had a change to test it out yet. So if you get a chance to try it out, please reply to this post and let me know how it worked out. GMAIL DRIVE GMail Drive is a Shell Namespace Extension that creates a virtual filesystem around your Google GMail account, allowing you to use GMail as a storage medium. GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google GMail account and enables ...
[Update 17 Sep 2005 1151 IST]: I am stopping the invitation request comment page from now due to the fact that the main reason Google introduced invite-only was to fight spam and more over by this time most of the people would be having a gmail id anyway :). Thanks for the support, have a great day. Ok, after inviting all friends personally now I have a lot of invitations on my account. Anybody in need of a gmail invitation leave a message as feedback with your email id (email id where the invitation ...
Google Desktop is here. There are many articles on this but here is one from Searchenginewatch.com. I won't go into what features it contains and what not, this information can be found on the web and on Google website itself. Yes, I did install it straigt away. My findings... It crashed my powerful P 4 system with 2 GB of RAM on it 4 times until I uninstalled it from this system. It just won't let me do anything with it. The moment I open Google Desktop, it will just hang up. I went to another system ...
After google, google toolbar, gmail and countless more exciting pieces of software... Google comes along with Google Desktop - Just plain amazing, and wroks seamlessly with all the other stuff they offer... What can I say, I'm so waiting for GoogleOS! I will buy it the minute it is available. I have never seen such cool things. It searches in your Email, IM chats, Cached web pages, and documents. The only thing I would like is more configuration options (were to search, run index again) but I guess ...
