“We’re sorry. You have reached a number that is disconnected or that is no longer in service.”

“We’re sorry. You have reached a number that is disconnected or that is no longer in service.”

Been getting harassed via telephone by some vacation telemarketing place in Las Vegas. At first I set my phone to send calls from that one number directly to voicemail. Then, tonight, I re-discovered you can block callers in Google Voce and automatically give them the official “this number is no longer in service message.” Yes. Here’s what my blocked call log looks like now. Continua a leggere – Original Link: “We’re sorry. You have reached a number...

Gmail Priority Inbox Puts Important Messages First

Gmail Priority Inbox Puts Important Messages First

Just completed my first email sweep with Gmail’s new “Priority Inbox” feature enabled, and it’s a keeper. Over time, if this mechanism proves to be as good as Gmail’s top-notch spam filtering, it could be the reason why you only check Gmail in the browser. (Well-played, GOOG.) Priority Inbox adds an “important messages” section above your inbox. Initially, Priority Inbox decides what messages are important based on your email and chat patterns–a...

ThinkTank is Now ThinkUp

ThinkTank is Now ThinkUp

Naming products is hard. After weeks of brainstorming, teeth-gnashing, hair-pulling, trademark searching, late-night strikes of inspiration followed by crushing morning realizations that the idea sucked, I’m thrilled to announce that ThinkTank has been renamed to ThinkUp. It’s our Firebird-to-Firefox moment. Rebranding is difficult, but the most heartening part of this process was that the ThinkUp idea came to us via the app. @markwallace responded to Anil’s call for...

(Updated) How to Transfer Google Voice to Your Google Apps Account

(Updated) How to Transfer Google Voice to Your Google Apps Account

Update: Google Voice product manager Craig Walker confirms that the Apps transfer is NOT supported right now, and that it was only done for a small group of testers. Sorry, all. The good news? He says there will be a way to transfer your Voice account to Google Apps once the new GApps features that are being tested right now launch. In the meantime, I’m removing the link to the request form from this post. Update: After I published this post, Google added very strong language...

From Facebook to Diaspora

From Facebook to Diaspora

Diaspora is a distributed, open source alternative to Facebook that a few NYU graduates want to spend this summer building. They set out to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter, and on the strength of all the backlash against Facebook’s privacy problems, the project has raised over $175,000 as of writing. Good for them. There are a LOT of existing projects doing work in this area (like OneSocialWeb, DiSo, Activity Streams), but I’m ok with a new effort working both together and in...

Work Smart: Mastering Your Social Media Life is two minutes and nine seconds on how to keep up with social networking updates without spending...

TWiG Tip: Icon-only, Perma-Tabs for Gmail and Google Reader

TWiG Tip: Icon-only, Perma-Tabs for Gmail and Google Reader

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. You use Firefox, you keep Gmail and Google Reader open at all times, and you wish they didn’t take up so much space in the tab bar. (Maybe you’re on a netbook, or maybe you’ve always got a dozen tabs open at once, so real estate is scarce.) You can permanently affix the Gmail and Reader tabs in...

Google Tip: Navigate Items with J and K in Reader, Gmail and Search

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. The J and K keys navigate through lists of items in Gmail, Google Reader, and even Google search results–without getting the mouse involved, which saves you point-and-click time. J goes to the next item down the list, and K the previous. J and K aren’t easy for your brain to remember, but they are for...

Better Gmail 2 Updated for Gmail’s Label Enhancements

Google’s recent improvements to Gmail’s labels broke one of Better Gmail 2’s most-loved features: Folders4Gmail. Folders4Gmail displays labels with slashes in them as subfolders of a parent label, and I must say, I’ve missed it a whole lot this week. Luckily, rockstar userscripter Arend v. Reinersdorff updated Folders4Gmail to work with Gmail’s new drag-and-drop, hide-and-show label mechanism, and I just posted his new version in the extension. Grab the newest...

Gmail Label Improvements Reduce Need for Folders (and Sub-folders)

Google’s rolling out some improvements to Gmail labels today, including drag-and-drop labeling, smart hiding of labels you use less often, and a location promotion to right below your inbox. Gmail product manager Todd Jackson told me that about 29% of users actually try out labels in Gmail at all, and these tweaks aim to increase that number. Label Placement Folder-loving users will now find labels right underneath their Inbox, Starred, Sent Mail, and Drafts items, where folders...

Google Wave Questions and Answers

Google Wave Questions and Answers

After whinging loudly about not having access to the Google Wave preview, Santa GOOG dropped an invite off in my inbox last night. Sadly I have no invites to give you, but I want to share the love how I can. Last night I held a Wave Q&A on Twitter, where folks asked anything they wanted to know about the app and I did my best to answer. I’m no Wave expert, but now that I’ve got my dirty little paws on it I had some insights and screenshots to share. The question and answer...
