Erase It

Monday, April 7th, 2008

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.

EdTech 08

Friday, April 4th, 2008

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.
