Gmail Tip #14: What Happens To Sent Messages?

When you "send" a message, two things happen to it: 1. it gets copied into your "All Mail" view, and 2. it is visible in the "Sent Mail" view. Many email clients and Webmail services let you optionally delete all sent messages by default, but Gmail doesn't offer this feature. Here's why... One of Gmail's […]

Gmail Tip #12: Archiving Explained

One concept that's sometimes a bit unclear to new Gmail users is that of "Archiving" messages. I'm not refering to the hype and false assertions of pundits who claim things like "Gmail keeps everything you ever send and receive!" and "Gmail archives your messages forever!" No, I'm refering to the "Archive" button in your Inbox […]

Gmail Tip #4: Formatting Your Name

Gmail's account names (you know, the "left" side of your email address) are very forgiving. Read more for more details! If you registered your Gmail account name like I did, you likely used the form "first.last@gmail.com". Did you know that it doesn't matter if you used a period or not!

T3 Tip #4: Tap-And-Hold Alternate Digital Input Areas

The Tungsten T3 has several User Interface "enhancements" that aren't always apparant. One great example has to do with the "Virtual Graffiti" or "Digital Input Area" (DIA). Learn how to change the Digital Input area! By default, the Virtual Graffiti area on the Tungsten T3 displays the "standard" Graffiti entry area surrounded by four "buttons". […]

T3 Tip #1: Flip your lid

Obviously, case preferences are very personal, but you may be able to save some money with Palm's included flip-cover. When I purchased my Palm Tungsten T3, I also purchased along with it a Palm "Hard Case" thinking that I would definitely need something to protect the $400 investment I just made. After having used several […]

Tip #24-HandStory-faking a schedule

This "tip" is very specialized, but some may find it useful... Though I REALLY love HandStory (it's my first choice for offline browsers) I have one small issue: There is no way to schedule when clips are updated. I leave my PC on 24/7, so faithfully around Midnight, HandStory auto-updates. Not bad, but unfortunatly, that […]

Tip #22-Battery Conservation

Here are a three tips to consider if your battery is not holding a charge like you think it should... 1. Does your Clie "come on" when you have it in your pocket, your purse, or in its case? Engaging the "Hold" button will prevent it from accidentally coming on. Alarms still sound, but you […]

Tip #19-Convert Movies to your hard drive

This may be an obvious one, but it had eluded me until recently. Did you know that you can convert movies to a format that the Clie Movie Player can play using the Image Converter program without converting directly to your Memory Stick? The other night, I decided to try converting some video into a […]

Tip #16-Take it with you!

My name is Jim Barr and I am a Mobile Information Addict. OK. There. I said it. I am a Mobile Information Junkie, and I'm not ashamed, in fact, I'm excited about it! The Sony Clie NX70V has given me the ability to have all sorts of information with me at all times. From Dictionaries, […]
