A little something I’m working on at SMILE.
For the past week I’ve been trying out a few different ways to keep on top of my work email. So far, nothing has worked out. Mail is too big. Sparrow is too buggy.
When I found out that I could integrate Google Apps for your Domain with Zoho CRM - but only in the web version - I knew that perhaps switching to the browser may be the best option. I’ll try it for a week but I need a notifier: that’s where the official Google Mail/Calendar notifier comes in.
Now this is a great set up - I can even choose to hide the unread count*, but the default icons are incredibly ugly. I decided to redesign a set, to make them more Mac-like.
I’ve put all of my replacements into one handy .zip so that you can change the icons too. I’d love some feedback, so if you find use for them please write a comment below.
*They really scare me.
P.S. I’d love to get a brief for something like this at work ;-)
I bought Momento the other day because I’ve always loved the idea of keeping a diary. I love the thought of a semi-automated diary even more.
I think d3i may be onto more than they know here. I can see huge potential. Unfortunately, most of that will be unlocked by adding as many online services to their feeds section as possible. The ones I really want to see in there are:
Some of these services would be great to post to, from Momento. Tumblr, Picasa, Twitpic, Twitter = Perfect.
Then add in a web-app… It’d be like a one-stop diary hub for all things diary like and I would be able to make Momento moments (which are essentially like the blog posts and tweets that I want to post, but can’t because I’ll get my ass sued if I do) on a nice big keyboard with access to my photos on my hard disks.
