Backup your Gmail with this tool.

Sunday, July 10, 2011

You may never need this tool, but it's great to know that there is a tool like this. This tool allows you to backup your Gmail or even transfer your Gmail from one account to another.  This could come in handy if you ever want to backup your email from the cloud, or simply transfer to another account.

The most overlooked feature of the new Google Chromebooks.

Friday, July 8, 2011

I have used both the CR48 beta and now the Samsung Chromebook Models and there are a lot of things to love about the new Google ChromebooIks.  Battery life, quick boot up, low maintenance, light weight, and more... But the best feature and use may be easily over looked.  This is the perfect laptop for an older parent, tech-challenged person, or simply anyone who seems to break computers.  There are no programs that can be installed to break the system.  There are no settings to change. There is no need for anti-virus or anti-malware software to load.  This thing just runs, and runs for a long time between electrical fill ups.  This is the perfect notebook to give someone and not expect them to be asking you to reformat it six months later.  And as the saying might go.... price of a Chomebook - $430.  Not having to fix it later - PRICELESS.
