Email apps caught scraping inboxes to sell data to third-parties

Email apps caught scraping inboxes to sell data to third-parties

It has become almost a common practice to offer free Internet services with a catch. More often than not, that catch involves gathering data that may or may not infringe on users' privacy. Most of the time, the reason given is for improving the service by providing a dataset they can study. Other times, however, these services are caught selling that data to the highest bidder, something that many users are apparently unaware of.

Edison Mail Assistant will make sure you won’t miss meetings and flights

There has been no shortage of attempts to kill or at least overhaul email but, just like SMS, it will take a concerted effort from almost everyone who uses email to switch to something else. In the meantime, email continues to flood people's inboxes with a varied mix of content, sometimes causing important schedules and information to be buried and forgotten. Taking a cue from the trend in the tech industry, Edison Mail has updated its Assistant to do more than just manage receipts but be an even more useful secretary to remind you of things before, not after, they're due.

Microsoft tests Outlook.com integration with Gmail and Google Calendar

Gmail on iPhones, iPads finally lets you block images in emails

Gmail on iPhones, iPads finally lets you block images in emails

iOS isn't Google's preferred mobile platform but, in order to keep users from going outside of its ecosystem, it naturally has to play ball. That doesn't mean, however, that all its mobile apps are created equal and, ironically, sometimes Android apps lag behind their iOS counterparts. Gmail for iOS, however, is different and it has, for years, lacked one important functionality. Fortunately, it has finally caught up and Gmail on your iPhone will no longer automatically load external images unless you say it's OK.

Gmail and Hangouts will start showing out of office notifications for users

One of the advantages of good old email is that neither sender nor recipient needs to be online at the same time to communicate. On the one hand, it makes it easier to properly think about responses and formulate them. On the other hand, however, you may not know when or if the recipient will be able to read the email, much less send a reply. That's why Google is now fortunately now rolling out a feature that will give you a clue of a colleague or recipient is out of reach and decide whether to still send them an email or wait for a more opportune time.

FileRoom wants to make your office papers useful with digitization

FileRoom wants to make your office papers useful with digitization

The folks behind FileRoom have an interesting idea for the modern office. They want to take all your paper - all the documents you've got stacked up around the office - and digitize the lot. They want to do some scanning of your paper, and make your paper-filled office into a far more streamlined operation. They want to make clear that they do not want the world to do away with paper altogether - they just want to be an integral (and simple to use) part of the process.
