Interesting Internet Finds – WE February 7, 2014

I publish Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through APCUG‘s PUSH program  with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors.

Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays.

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you to check out yourself.

  1. The Google search info in sent mail displays a Google Search Box that I don’t see.
    It is interesting info, but where is the Google banner that he displays”

    • Jack,

      That is not a banner. It is a screenshot of the top of his GMail screen, and the downward arrow he is referring to is just to the left of the magnifying icon shown to the right of the search box.

      I hope this helps.
