No more Gmail app for Blackberry

Shame on Google. . .normally I support them whole-heartedly, since I used Gmail, Picasa, Blogger, Google+, Google Calendar, you name it.



Luckily I have a Droid not, but my husband still uses a Blackberry as do many we know and he uses Gmail exclusively.



Very Bad Move Google!

Gmail to Stop Providing Email App for BlackBerry

gty google mobile email thg 111110 wblog Gmail to Stop Providing Email App for BlackBerry

Google has offered a free app that BlackBerry users can download to read their Gmail on the go, but it has now announced that as of Nov. 22, it will stop. No more downloads, no more technical support if you already have the app. The app will still work if you have it (go to http://m.google.com/mail on your handheld if you still want to get it), but Google says it would prefer you just use the browser on your handheld instead. (Just go to http://www.gmail.com. It’s slow but it works.)

Christmas Tree "Tax". . .

This borders on the issue of separation of church and state. . .but no worries in my house, since we already stick to hypo-allergenic, non-flammable artificial trees that we can reuse year after year and don't have to water.

nm fake vs real tree 101224 main Blowback for Obama on Christmas Tree Tax

Starting today, the government is imposing a 15-cent fee on most fresh-cut Christmas trees, but before critics compare President Obama to the Grinch, officials want to explain this is a growers’ arrangement to boost tree sales. And they insist it is not a “tax.”

As the holidays approach, imported fresh trees will be assessed as they cross the border, and American growers will ante up in February for each fresh-cut Christmas tree sold. Small growers and all-organic tree farms will be exempt.

The money all goes to a marketing board being set up for the tree growers’ industry, just like the “Got Milk” dairy marketing campaign and the beef industry’s “What’s for Dinner” commercials, both examples of what officials call highly successful advertising efforts which boosted sales and consumption.
