If you use access Gmail in Google Chrome on your computer, you can now view PDF attachments using Chrome's built-in viewer.

Oh, snap! Firefox and Chrome can now drag-and-drop GMail attachments

Yes, you could already easily attach images to Gmail by browsing and uploading -- but that's for suckers. Drag-and-drop attachments would be much cooler...and starting today you can do just that!

This is a fairly common thing for Outlook users to do, and it doesn't usually cause problems because Outlook can happily open those messages. It's not very good email etiquette and you should avoided doing it if possible...

Share1t provides simple, free file hosting up to 100mb

Some things are best kept simple, and that's exactly the way Share1t.com approaches its file sharing service. The Share1t home page is totally uncluttered, with nothing but a thin information header at the top, banner ad in the footer, and a nice, big browse-and-upload form right in the middle. After uploading your file, you'll be given a truncated URL, HTML and BBCode for embedding your file,...

"Please don't send me Word documents"

Word documents can sometimes seem like an inevitability of modern business, but at least one person things that doesn't have to be so. Research scientist Tristan Miller has put together a page called Please don't send me Microsoft Word documents that explains to would-be attachment-senders why Word is a bad format to send to your colleagues and what alternatives there are. Though I'm sure some...
