If you're still paying for AOL, there's a good chance you don't need to. Molly Wood shows you how to switch to a free account for AOL e-mail.
When Apple released the iPhoto '11 version 9.1.1 update, one of the included features was to allow Microsoft Outlook users to send photos via e-mail through that program. Apple has in the past supported the use of Entourage, but the new Outlook e-mail client has a few different protocols and features and needed specific support. Unfortunately even though iPhoto is supposed to send e-mails through Outlook, a number of people are finding the feature broken.
Luckily the problem is not with iPhoto's coding, which would require Apple to recompile the program, but instead is with a crude … Read more
How much do you know about your lover?
You know, things that they don't know you know, things that you happen to have read when they might have idly left their laptop open on their Gmail homepage.
Or do you, perhaps, know your lover's password and regularly check what they write about you? Do you worry, indeed, that they are unfaithful in body as well as in spirit?
I ask because some enterprising justice-seeking prosecutors in Michigan have decided to bring charges against a husband for reading his wife's e-mail.
Now that your new Mac is set up and you have the Internet hooked up, how about some software? Out of the box, your Mac is loaded with cool apps to get you started on stuff like uploading and organizing your digital images, creating a music library, making your own movies, and surfing the Web. But it doesn't come with everything.
There are several apps Mac users count on every day that aren't included in the initial setup. To get you started, we've rounded up our must-have downloads for your new Mac. From Web browsers and useful … Read more
We like the idea of having an e-mail signature, but we typically don't use one, because we use the same email account for so many different aspects of our life. The cheeky quote that would be appropriate for emails to friends is not necessarily something we want to attach to business correspondence, and we don't need the details of our contact information to land in the inbox of every person we happen to e-mail. Fortunately, WiseStamp - Email Signatures makes it easy to create custom signatures that can be changed from e-mail to e-mail, ensuring that your signature … Read more
Mobile Email 4.0 has finally arrived for owners of feature phones on Verizon Wireless. The new e-mail solution boasts an improved method of accessing e-mail that includes a "true push" experience, compatibility with Microsoft Exchange Email, Outlook Calendar sync, and a brand-new user interface.
As a reminder, the Mobile Email app isn't free--it's $5 a month with a Pay as You Go option, but it is included if you have a $15 or higher data plan.
Our response to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg being named Time's Person of the Year? Um, actually, that kind of makes sense. Also, Yahoo makes some deep cuts, but the tech community rallies with job offers and free beer. And Gawker's password mess proves once again (as if you needed any proof) that you really, really, REALLY shouldn't poke the bear. We told you so. --MollySubscribe: iTunes (MP3) | iTunes (320x180) | iTunes (640x360) | RSS (MP3) | RSS (320x180) | RSS (640x360)… Read more

On a typical morning, I wake up to more than 80 new e-mails in my in-box--and that doesn't even count the many more that are automatically filtered to several sub-folders, one of which receives around 70 messages per day alone.
Nor does that encompass the dozen or so messages sitting in my personal account. That's quite a lot of e-mail to sift through, especially for a person who cringes at the sight of unread messages in her in-box. But once I've marked them as read, it then becomes a chore to keep track of what needs a … Read more
Anyone who uses the Web for a while knows that login information starts to pile up quickly. With online e-mail accounts, login information for online banking, and countless forums, most users start to use the same passwords for everything. It's pretty easy to see how this is a bad security practice.
Fortunately, you can download 1Password, which remembers all your passwords so you don't have to. Simply come up with a secure master password and then train 1Password to log in to sites for you. It integrates seamlessly with Apple's Mac OS X Keychain and generates complex … Read more
