Gmail Quick Keys

If you are someone who relishes in the quick key shortcuts that you know (command + c = cut, command + v = paste, etc.) then you may be interested in the list of quick keys that I found for Gmail. You can pull up the list right in Gmail by clicking shift + question mark and an overlay will appear with them all. You may also need to turn on the bottom section of the shortcuts depending on if you have used them before or not.

I also went ahead and created a document with all of the shortcuts in it, which you can find on my "Guides & Tutorials" website by clicking here. Like many shortcuts, it will likely take a bit to remember them, but it can certainly make cruising through your email pile quicker if you know them.

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
