Ok here are some useful things that I just found in gmail!!

- greader... is invaluable... just set it up and start subscribing to whatever blogs or feeds you find interesting. it's like a whole little world tailored just for you

- there's a theme (one with a tree) where you enter your zip/city and then whenever you login the background changes according to the weather!! so if it's raining your background is all rainy, if it's snowing it's all snowy... i love it.

-  I just discovered a TASKS link it pops up this little thing where you can enter things/reminders like -get the milk -send reply email to blah then once you do them you can delete them!

- google labs has a whole bunch of neat things to play around with. I discovered "canned responses" which is absolutely amazing. I can easily reply to people with different types of responses. This has been invaluable in organizing the online classes/retreats we have.

Asalaamu Alaikum bro

I can see how the popularity of these Apps are going to grow as more and more people get smartphones.

The Fortification of a Muslim and Masjid Finder applications seem particular apt (pun intended) for those on the go.


On a flip note, it is kind of scary that there is so much more information / resources available to us nowadays and the excuses for inaction grow fewer by the day!!


PS I’m still waiting for the official Jannah.Org App Wink

Say: "O ye my servants who believe! Fear your Lord, good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world. Spacious is God's earth! those who patiently persevere will truly receive a reward without measure!" [39:10]

there are also 'labels' which you cud use for tagging ur emails of common headings

If an email if of a 'to do ' nature, u cud convert it to a TASK for further reminder

I mostly use Greader for accessing this board. Very convenient

I found a great new PDF reader called SumatraPDF. It's free, extremely small and veryyy fast. So don't install that humongous bloated Adobe Acrobat Reader stuff ever again!!

SO NEEDED THIS!!! Annoyed when you are typing a document and accidentally the palm of your hand brushes the touchpad, changing the position of the cursor in your document or accidentally clicking on an option. TouchFreeze is simple utility for Windows NT/2000/XP that solves this problem. It automatically disables touchpad while you are typing text. Like syndaemon on x-windows.

Download latest Windows binaries from downloads section. http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/
