Gmail Rolls Out New Priority Inbox Feature 150 150 adminxs

If you have a gmail account, you may have noticed recently a bright red link in the upper right hand corner labeled “Priority Inbox Beta.” This is Googles latest attempt to de-clutter your inbox so that you don’t experience the information overload you get every time you login. The priority mail setting splits up your messages into three groups:

Important and unread:
Messages from people with whom you regularly interact and that were sent directly to you instead of an entire group.

Starred:
E-mail you yourself have marked as important.

Everything else:
Things that you don’t need to bog down your mind with at the moment. read more

Google Wallet: The New Credit Card

Google Wallet: The New Credit Card 150 150 adminxs


Once upon a time, long long ago humans used to purchase items by exchanging personal belongings, everything from livestock and weapons to silk and human skulls.

(Okay, well maybe not exactly like that.) Our form of currency has evolved rapidly since 6000 B.C. from shells to metal, leather, paper and gold etc.

Google plans to replace your wallet with a phone, but we have a feeling girls will still be holding on to these beauties.
Now, search engine giant Google, has set forth to reinvent the wheel once again with their newly unveiled Google Wallet. This comes with no surprise with the popularity of online electronic payments and mobile apps such as square; it was only a matter of time before Google would replace the handy leather material we all carry in our purses and back pockets. Here is how it works: read more

Bing: Microsoft's Crown Jewel After 8 Year, $6 Billion Slump 150 150 adminxs


At the beginning of this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer highlighted the market-share gains for the Bing search engine as the company’s come back from “an economically devastating year.” Since then, Bing, rebranded as the “decision engine” has partnered with Yahoo! to increase its U.S. market-share that has grown from 8.4% to 11.8% in May 2010 right before it’s 1 year anniversary. They have claimed success with Bing Shopping, Travel and Maps, however, our Orange County Web Design firm still wonders: is it enough to overshadow the $6 Billion loss they’ve accrued over the last eight years?
