Google Buzz is Already Messing Up My Email. Please Fix. Thank You.

Yes, I still use Thunderbird and Outlook for email. I like GMails web client, but I also like the hierarchal folder structure of the clients. But today, I had to rethink my processes due to Google and their new Google Buzz program. Now, instead of getting important email sent to the box, I got hoards of “Buzz From” emails. First thing I did was go scouring the site for a setting that would curb this blatent spamming of my email box. I was really hoping for something like Google Groups has – turn on a setting that lets me have a digest...

Dell Buzz on Possible Phone?

GigaOM’s OM Malik talked with Michael Dell about the company a couple weeks back. Michael made some statements whose predictions at times were no easier than determining Nostradamus’ writings. Yet other websites interpreted it in saying that Dell is hinting on making a phone to rival iPhone. While it’s not an impossibility, will Dell get into the market or are they playing on the media to ilicit a response from the public? The Quickcast is brought to you by Gotomeeting.

DigGoogle – What Google Can Gain if They Buy Digg

Digg grew to a powerhouse site in a very short time. The Popular News Aggregator service continues to be a great place for people to not only read news, but also contribute to what they think is news. Alexa reports that Digg has been fluctuating around the top 100 to 150 sites being viewed. 52.5% of those viewers are in the US. The rumor mill is stirring up again that Google has put interest in buying Digg. TechCrunch reports that the “Rumor” is Digg will be selling for $200 million although CEO Jay Adelson denies it. Will this be a...

Fakes on the Internet

Fakes. Throughout time we’ve had to deal with those who want to pass something off as an original. Sometimes we are not fooled.

In the last week I’ve seen many fake photos of different items – most notably the Large GPS picture and Windows 7 screenshots. There is even a video out there that supposedly displays Windows 7 functionality. While impressive, it makes me wonder if someone is trying to pass these off to make a quick buck?
