The Best Way to Keep Track of Reminders

Jotting down notes and reminders on paper is a hazardous undertaking. A piece of paper, or even a notebook, can easily get lost or misplaced. If your house or workplace goes up in smoke the paper notes and notebooks will invariably be destroyed.

Moore’s Law states that the most valuable notes will be destroyed in the fire and the most useless ones will survive!

One way to avoid this is to enter your notes into an e-mail message and the send to yourself. The e-mail will remain permanently in your e-mail system and most e-mail systems, particularly those like Gmail, have very efficient search facilities.

Providing that the Subject Line of the note has been clearly defined you should have no trouble finding that information when you need it.

A quick reminder as to do something can be sent to yourself as a simple e-mail with details of the reminder in the e-mail subject line.

The reminder is in the Subject Line of the Email

A great service for delayed reminders is NudgeMail. NudgeMail enables you to set a reminder that will be delivered to your email sometime in the future.

You can put as much detail as you require in the body of the message and the Subject Line is where you place a description of the reminder.

It’s a great service and the good news is that it comes to you completely free of charge and is very user-friendly.

iPhone Still Works Without SIM Card

I recently exchanged my iPhone for a Samsung Galaxy smart phone.

I was delighted to find that the iPhone still works with data transmission on Wi-Fi without a SIM card. All the apps still work and I can send and receive emails. The iPhone is certainly not a throw away device and still extremely useful as a mini-computer.

The only feature that has been lost with the removal of the SIM card is the ability to send and receive telephone calls and text messages and connect using 3G. Needless to say it requires a Wi-Fi to function.

I you are not sure how to connect your iPhone to Wi-Fi then watch the video below.
