Want to keep those internet marketers out of your mailbox? If so, you need to keep your internet searches to yourself. Search engines track your search queries which can then be used for marketing purposes. AskEraser from Ask.com is a new privacy feature which allows for your search activity to be deleted from Ask.com servers except for legal or critical operation purposes. Search activity includes data on the pages you visit, the search terms you use, the links you click, your IP address, and any session identifiers. It does not delete your identifiable information, such as name or e-mail address you choose to provide to Ask.com. To activate AskEraser, go to http://www.ask.com and click on “AskEraser” at the top of the page, then use Ask.com as your regular search engine.

Save your ink and paper by using this free program, GreenPrint World Edition. GreenPrint saves millions of trees (according to their site) by automatically removing blank pages before printing. This program can remove banner ads and other elements as well. You can print from your regular printer or save the file as a PDF. There is a fee for the Home Premium and Enterprise editions. Go to http://printgreener.com/index.html However, if you are unable to download you can still save trees when printing from the Web by using the print preview function and print only the pages you actually need.
The Richmond Contingent was out in force at EdTech 08. Our presenters received very high marks. Thank you to all. During one of my sessions, an attendee mentioned this site http://www.jott.com which allows you to use your own voice to send E-mails and text messages. The service is free. So, sign up and you will get a toll free number to call and to record a voice message. Then, the message will be sent to someone as text. Great way to send yourself reminders.
