I completely agree with +Julia Roy and have been loving Inbox from Google. 
How Google's new Inbox for Gmail reimagines the way we manage, process and finally start to take control of our inbox.

I saw a reportage recently that talked about that same WATSON computer, now putting together some recipes that no one else has ever come up with. Apparently, this was accomplished by WATSON examining existing recipies, identifying what ingredients were used, and then replacing and/or adding other ingredients whose chemical structure and properties would work together. The result was some completely new recipes that, apparently, tasted great. I believe that we create, based on information that we have accumulated over time, through experiences and observations. I see no reason why a machine like WATSON could not display even more creativity, after accumulating and digesting even more information made available to it.      Can you say SkyNet?   Sure you can.

This video was a powerful statement......and it makes one wonder if it wasn't created by a bot !!

Is there anything in your life that you hate so much... yet still check more than twenty times a day? You're not alone. We're all addicted to our inbox. http://wrk.hk/gmailcourse

Am I the only one who doesn't hate email? Counting promo emails, I probably get 20-100 emails per day (that reach my actual inbox) depending on what's going on, etc. I am sure some people get much more than that, but I would rather get those as emails than texts, phone calls or voicemails. At least I can filter email, label it, mark it to be dealt with at a later date and so on. Plus, if I send an email I can have a record of something and follow up on it. Yes, it's endless, but at least it can be organized.

If I had a complaint, it would be that people don't think about who they really need to include in group emails. Also, some people are very bad at responding and acting on email.

There are many tools you can use to be more productive with email, but at the very least some good filters and labels should help. Also, unsubscribe from emails you don't care about.

Oh, and follow +Julia Roy of course!

Remember Valentine’s Day in elementary school when it was a day of treats and exchanging tokens of friendship.

If you get Google Alerts, ditch it and switch to Mention and never look back. It’s amazing. http://bit.ly/1hczWHh
Media monitoring made easy with mention. Create alerts on your name, brand, competitors and be informed in real-time of any mention on the web and social networks
