I said yesterday that i would keep you posted on what Internet Email Support i thought was the “best”. Now at the moment i am rather inclined to say that Google Mail is the best. Although i don’t think at this time i have given the other email services a proper chance. So i have decided that i will do A Email Support a day and then at the end decide which one is the best. Starting tomorrow with Google.

Yes i know that this slightly contradicts what was just said about TLD’s. But i decided a few days ago that i would try some different e-mail platforms out to see which one i think is the best. 

Now. As most of us know. There are many things we can use as an online e-mail. Such organizations include Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Google Mail (gmail), AOL and many more. I decided to try out Yahoo!, Google Mail, and Windows Live Mail.

I was first drawn to internet e-mail when i had enormous problems with Microsoft Outlook and, to be honest. i couldn’t be assed with it any longer. I have always wondered, “What’s the Best E-Mail” and i have the chance to answer that question that has been on my mind for quite some time. 

So i have signed up for Google Mail and Yahoo!. As i already have a “Hotmail” account i didn’t need to sign up for one. Now signing up for Yahoo! was the most annoying thing i have ever done. It took ages just to process my password. And when it went back to my page because i had probably got the security code wrong the password was a mile long. That was the minor snag. But once signed up i found it had good links. I will keep you posted on how i find it. Google Mail was quite a easy set-up and this account can also be used for youtube which is very useful. Same as Google i will keep at it.

I will update this post soon with more information. Remember you can always help with my comparison by e-mailing my google mail. geektechnathan@gmail.com. Thanks,

A quick note just too say that we are not enthusiasts of spamming. We just think that people ought too know about the variety of websites that feature on the world wide web. We understand that people can be annoyed at these kind of things that fill up our mailboxes. We will be starting a forum soon, with this same controversial topic.

From experience i have now realised that i shouldn’t have accepted something that came through the minute i signed into my skype. It said that a company i had recognized wanted too use my skype (a very big mistake. a very good forgery). When i accepted it my skype immediatly shut down and i had too re-install it. So just a warning too the readers not too accept these “helpers” as they do the exact opposite.

Comment if this has happened to you or has helped . Thanks 😀

Useless iPhone/iPod Touch Apps, Episode 1: The Tiny Violin. Shownotes by Scott Campbell

Useless Apps for iPhone and iPod Touch, Episode 1: The Tiny Violin. 

 

For the first episode of Useless Apps I thought I should show you The Tiny Violin, a virtual violin application.

The Tiny Violin has an icon with a picture of a violin.

When you press it, up comes a violin, then a bow. 

The application has 3 tunes, 2 depressing, and one slightly more sarcastic.

The Tiny Violin costs £0.59 and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
