New Gmail Feature

Today I was compiling an email and saw a new link next to the attach link: If you click this new ‘Invitation’ link it opens a window to create and invite people to a Google Calendar event. Very cool! [update] More from ReadWriteWeb. [/update]

Links in Google Calendar Events

When I was teaching my WordPress class recently a librarian asked me if they could link to the registration page from their Google Calendar (the one I told them to embed in their WordPress site) – and I said I didn’t think so. Now, I don’t remember who that librarian was so I’m going to share this with you all and hope that she’s reading In a recent post by  [ Read More ]

Google Rolls Out Google Buzz

So, last year it was Google Wave and this year we have Google Buzz! I just logged into my email to see an invite to set up Google Buzz – I of course said “go right ahead” before doing any research on what it was Google Buzz is like FriendFeed in your email. It’s a way to bring your status updates into Email and read them right there in your  [ Read More ]

Sharing in Google Reader

I’ve been pretty vocal about not liking Google Reader and not wanting to switch, but I have also been open to going back to it once in a while to see if it has been improved. I do see some neat changes, but I still can’t figure out how to solve 3 issues that really bug me. I see that I can grab a blogroll for each folder, but not  [ Read More ]

Switch to Gmail

Still on Hotmail? Or worse – AOL mail? Google has made it so that you can easily switch to Gmail: Since launching back in 2004, Gmail has set the gold standard for webmail clients, offering a large amount of storage and a highly usable interface, free of charge. But for many people it has remained out of reach – no matter how appealing Gmail might be, they’ve racked up thousands  [ Read More ]

Search by Color on Google

This morning I was looking for a bit of art for my (soon) newly decorated bathroom. I was looking for a tile art piece that I know I’ve seen before – something that is made of blue glass or plastic. What I didn’t see was that Google Image Search has a new color option to limit your search by! I could have used that – and will be using it  [ Read More ]

NFAIS 2009: Google Generation

Ian Rowlands presented a talk titled, The Information Behavior of Researchers of the Future: Survey Results. Ian started by saying that he was happy that John was optimistic before him – because it lets him be a bit more anxious and less complacent about where we’re going on our own digital journey. He talked about a study he did with JISC and the British Library to discuss what happens in  [ Read More ]

Create Doc from Gmail

Pretty soon Google is going to have to organize their Gmail Labs page better. There was so much on there I didn’t know about. Today I added the ability to move boxes around on the right (something I’ve been dying for) and the ability to export an email thread as a Google Document. I could have used that this AM when I needed to find a way to copy an  [ Read More ]

Google PDF Viewer

Every week I get an update email from our support center at work. Last week the report had a link under it to ‘View as HTML’ – which is always how I checked the report. Today it looks a little different: I have read the news about Google adding a real PDF viewer, but this is my first chance to try it out – and I have to say I’m  [ Read More ]

Integrated Gmail Firefox Add-on

I read about this neat sounding add-on for Firefox on Lifehacker – but unfortunately it’s not ready for prime time. Allows you to make the Inbox Collapsible and loads your choice of Google Calendar, Reader, Notebook, Groups, etc… plus Custom URLs and Google Gadgets seamlessly into the gmail interface. Works w/Google Apps Accounts and GMail Themes. I installed the Integrated Gmail add-on, but every time I went to Gmail I  [ Read More ]
