The best email clients for Windows 2016 – Matteo Spinelli's The short story is: for regular not-too-intense use go for Thunderbird; power users can try The Bat or Claws; if email is mission critical, Outlook. Meaning: we are all doomed! Claws Mail Let’s start from a new entry. Claws Mail is a Sylpheed spin-off but grew its own personality over time. Despite being lesser know email clients (at least in the Windows realm) and a bit old school, they are both actively developed. Winamp Wants To Be The iTunes Of Android; Now Out Of Beta With Wireless Sync Today Winamp for Android is coming out of beta, a month after its initial launch and more than 500,000 downloads later. The public Android release lets you manage your music downloads on your Android and will offer a couple new features, including wireless syncing over WiFi with Winamp on your desktop computer and the addition of Shoutcast radio stations.

Thunderbird: From mbox to maildir Thunderbird has always been my favourite email application. I've tried a few other ones but always went back because no other one is so flexible and extensible, IMHO. (And Outlook and the likes are out of question as I'm running Linux.) One disadvantage of Thunderbird is that it is still using the mbox file format by default. Basically this means that in each folder all mails are comprised in one big text file. 50% Of Android Apps With Internet Access That Ask For Your Location Send It To Advertisers Be careful what permissions you sign away to your Android apps. A new study suggests that fully half of the most popular apps for Google's mobile OS that access location data are sending it to advertisers without users' consent. The study, conducted by researchers at Intel, Duke, and Penn State, looked at 30 of the most popular apps which ask for permission to access to the Internet and your phone's location. The researchers found that 15 of them were sending that information on to ad networks, and none of them asked permission or mentioned this practice in their end-user license agreements (EULAs).

Zach Schneider 2.5 years ago, I wrote a post about the state of email apps for Mac that surprisingly got a little popular on Hacker News.

Google Acquires Impressive Touchscreen Keyboard Startup BlindType Google has just acquired BlindType, a very impressive technology that allows you to type on touch screens without even looking at them. See our past coverage of the startup here. BlindType doesn’t force you to type using a virtual keyboard at the bottom of your screen, which is the norm on most smartphones. Instead, you just start typing wherever it’s convenient— BlindType analyzes the position of your finger taps relative to each other to determine which characters you’re typing (check out the video below to watch it in action). Here’s a post that just went live on the company’s blog: We are excited to announce that BlindType has been acquired by Google!

User:Imz/research on HOW TO backup an IMAP account - ALT Linux Wiki From ALT Linux Wiki (Better and worse ways to backup an IMAP account; a research of the available options.) I want to maintain a backup of an "IMAP account" (I mean the collection of mailboxes/folders accessed via IMAP by a single user on a remote server), with history. So I'm assessing the variants of doing this, choosing the optimal combination of individual decisions (regarding the subtasks of this greater task) and tools.

Pinger Now Turns Your iPod Touch Into A Free Cell Phone Earlier this month we took a look at Pinger, the company behind Textfree, a massively popular application for the iPhone and iPod Touch that gives users free, unlimited text messaging.

And today at TechCrunch Disrupt, the company is announcing that it’s venturing into new territory: voice calls. Textfree will soon include a true SIP-based VOIP client that works over both 3G and Wifi.

Geoloqi Aims to Unlock the Magic of Mobile Location I want an app that automatically sends me a link to the Wikipedia entry for any historic building I travel nearby.

Those kinds of things could really happen once a startup called Geoloqi launches soon. Geoloqi turns your mobile location into a platform for messaging, programmed functionality and temporary, limited sharing.
