GMail - Sign out all other sessions

Now GMail account is more secure. GMail provides information about how many sessions of the GMail account are currently open.

So if you have logged in to the GMail account from Cyber Cafe or a friends house and you do not remember whether you have properly logged out or not? Or if you have logged in to the account from home and the laptop is still on and used at home and you want to make sure you are logged off from the account.

GMail page now shows the opened sessions information at the bottom of the page. We can click the details link provided with that information to read the report of all the sessions and last activities done with our account.

This report is helpful in determining whether the account is opened from two places. The IP address information also provides insight whether the account is compromised.

The most important feature now GMail provides is the Sign out of all other sessions button on this report. Now we can just sign out of all other GMail sessions we may have opened from any other place by clicking this button. Only the session we are currently using is kept on and all others are logged off.

Now that is really secured.

Tudumo - my task list

Tudumo is a clean and elegant way to manage your tasks. The tag line is so real. Tudumo is simple and quick solution to my task list job.

I purchased Tudumo in April 2008 and I feel I took a good decision as I still continue to use this software. The creator of Tudumo is very efficient and active in answering queries on the support mailing list.

There are many new features to be added in Tudumo in coming days but my point is I am happy with Tudumo as it is now. Thanks Richard for this great piece of software and making my life more organized.

Temporary Mail Address for 10 Minutes

10 Minutes Mail is service which provides you a temporary email address for 10 minutes. Why would someone need such a temporary email address and that too for 10 minutes only?

The author of the service explains this fact tactfully on the home page of the service.

We can use this temporary address to sign up with some new web site and later can change our email to the actual one once we are satisfied with the site.
