For the mom who won't let go of AOL...
The shiny new MacBook Pro your mom just bought to replace her 6-year-old behemoth of a Compaq notebook says she's very 2010. But when she checks her e-mail she slides back to 2000.
The voice of "You've got mail!" echoes every time she logs on to AOL. Why, you ask, does she have AOL? Not because you and your whole tech-savvy family haven't tried to lure her away to Gmail, because you have. Repeatedly. But she insists that a decade of bookmarks and AOL favorites built up and saved would be too inconvenient to manually replace.
Which is why you might want to consider this great (and free!) Mother's Day gift: migrating her to a Gmail account and setting up an iGoogle bookmark in Safari for access to a personalized host of Google services she'll like (News, Finance, Picasa).
As a bonus, be sure to let her in on the secret that you're available to chat with her on Gtalk pretty much whenever.
