Tech Talk #6 - Using Gmail - Google's webmail program

If you're online, you've got at least one email account.  Chances are that you've experienced some sort of e-frustration in the past year - too much spam, lost emails, dropped conversations...  In TT #6 we explore Gmail, Google's approach to email and we talk about the unique ideas and strengths that it contains.  If you want to do email faster, better, and more intelligently you should give #6 a listen.

Tech Talk #5 - Sharing your pictures online with Picasa and Flickr

Everyone has a digital camera nowadays, but what are some good ways to share those pictures with others?  Email it to them?  Print it out and give it to them?   How about uploading it to one of the big photo gallery sites?

In TT#5 we cover Flickr and Picasa, two of the bigger names in the online photo gallery world.  We talk about uploading, sharing, privacy, and even why you'd want to upload them in the first place.
