Gmail

logoI forget to mention it, but I recently got a Gmail beta account (thanks again, KS). The big features are that you get 1GB of space for your stuff, and that since it’s from Google there are advanced search features. Haven’t played around with it that much, but I was mostly happy to get one because it’ll be nice for Yuko, who tends to use her webmail accounts (that are always full) to transfer her reports. Looks like it’s got Hotmail beat.

Matching Mobiles

Yuko lost her mobile phone the other day. Well, she didn’t exactly lose it, she dropped it in the huge fountain in front of her library at Todai. It was impossible to retrieve (it’s quite deep), and so we had to get her a replacement. After some visits to Bic Camera and Sakuraya, we ended up getting the same model as mine (it’s now selling for half the price), in white, at an AU shop. The fun part about this is that she can show me how to do things, now that she’s completely read the manual (she’s got a thing for instruction manuals, loves them actually). She’s been showing me a few tricks I never knew about. Also, as I got bored with Arkanoid, I’ve now developed an addiction to Tetris, which I hadn’t played in years.

Moving Advertisements
