What People are Really Doing with Their Tablets

Written on April 12, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

With tablets inching its way in replacing the laptops as a mobile computing device, it’s inevitable to ask the tablet-universe denizens on what they use their devices for. Good thing Google’s AdMob was up to the task as they polled tablet-owners in the U.S. on what they were doing on the devices. Is it for checking e-mails? Reading the digital newspapers, shopping online, playing games?

Well, the results definitely left a lot of people stagger as it seems the tablet is not only here to clash against the laptops, but most likely against the handheld gaming consoles as well (no surprise there, folks).

Check out the chart after the break!

Manage your Gmail with TaskForce

Written on September 16, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Your inbox is a steady stream of incoming information. And most of the times, your inbox can become a clutter basket. Good thing, you can now manager them all with TaskForce.

TaskForce is a little window, living in your Gmail and sorts your tasks, emails and activities to make your work more efficient. It can split your messages into information, action and broadcast directly from its interface or through email. Features like sharing and comments on your tasks can be found in a small location at the top right corner or your Gmail.

How does it work? Just click the “New Task” button and enter your desired information, then all your details will be immediately grouped based on your input. What’s cool about TaskForce is that you don’t need to sign in to Gmail to do that — thanks to its iPhone-optimized site! Other thing that the TaskForce can do is to create a community feed that can clear the broadcast email you receive everyday via filters. You can virtually specify anything that you want to show up in your inbox, then archive the rest in your activity feed. But if you’re not a fan of filtering, you can set them all to be delivered directly to your TaskForce.

Schedule Your Gmails with Boomerang

Written on August 17, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Boomerang is a Chrome and Firefox Extension that helps you schedule the emails you send and receive for a later time. It's currently in private beta and still working on some bugs. But it sounds promising, isn't it?

If you are having a hard time acting on all the email that gets in your inbox, then Boomerang is for you! Boomerang will let you schedule your emails whenever you want them to reappear. What’s best is that it even works for sent times, so you can postpone delivery of a happy birthday email for a friend, in case you remembered to send it a few days earlier.

Just place a Boomerang drop-down menu in your Gmail message bar, and viola! You can now start choosing your message schedule in a specific time. However, options like in an hour, tomorrow and next week are also available. There’s no need to enter a time stamp or an exact date if you’re not a fan of it. Instead, you can input things like “next Wednesday” or “Today at 5:00 pm.” Just a reminder, Boomerang only shows up when viewing or composing a single message. As of the moment, you can’t schedule multiple messages at once. And since it is still in a private beta, expect some bugs. If you’re using Chrome, the Boomerang button might not show up in message view. Don’t panic! Just reload the page.
